Lauren Kate Proves with Her ‘Fallen’ Series that True Love Never Says Goodbye…

Lauren Kate Proves with Her ‘Fallen’ Series that True Love Never Says Goodbye…

 

Except for the reader, who reads these books with such intensity and passion that they almost want to strangle the publisher for having the nerve to offer an excerpt to the final Fallen book that they won’t be able to get their hands on for a few more months.  Yes, this title is put out as Fallen 3.5!

 

The Fallen series has become one of the largest and most well-known when it comes to the “winged ones” of the world, and Lauren Kate has managed to captivate and enchant all of her fans.  Having this new novel that offers four separate stories about our beloved favorite characters – just in time to make a very nice Valentine’s Day gift, by the way – is lovely.  And the excerpt from Rapture – the fourth and final installment?  Mouthwatering.

 

As everyone knows who reads Ms. Kate, her characters have been through many lifetimes.  There are present and past Daniel’s and Lucinda’s wandering the Earth in their own time periods, living out the inevitable moment where Luce will once again die the death of a passionate love that’s simply never going to be possible.

 

The first story is all about one of my favorite duos – Shelby and Miles.  Stepping out of their Announcer, they find themselves in medieval times where all Shelby wants to do is give Daniel and Luce just one day – one Valentine’s Day where they can be together, seeing as that for the rest of their lives it will never happen again.  But what comes through is the sweetness and humor between the two characters as early signs of a relationship appear on the horizon.

 

We then head into Roland’s word – the tough, the steel-spine, the man who is following Daniel in order to make sure the boy does NOT screw up in this lifetime.  Roland’s not nearly as worried about Luce, seeing as that she seems to understand far more than the angel she’s in love with.  This story, however, turns away from the path of the ‘Romeo & Juliet’ couple, and offers fans a whole new look at the ‘Redemption of Roland.’

 

Arriane and Tess, a relationship that tugs at the heartstrings, comes next.  If not for a simple miscommunication, perhaps things could’ve been different.  But a story where one will sacrifice for the other – no matter what the pain or agony is for punishment – is a true gift.

 

And, of course, Daniel and Luce appear in story four to offer their fans a look at yet another ‘day in the life of.’ But this time, a day that meant beauty and joy on the one day devoted to love.

 

Bad part of the book?  The excerpt.  No, before everyone goes getting all beside themselves in anger – I mean the fact that Rapture already sounds magnificent; a fulfilling ending to a stunning ‘out-of-the-box’ series…yet it’s not OUT YET!  I know, I know, patience is a virtue.  However, I’m more of a Cam, myself.  Patience is one virtue I simply can’t get a handle on, no matter how many lives I live.

Until Next Time, Everybody.

Trump and Traditions of the Founders

What I see in Trump is “America’s traditional reflection in the mirror.” I see the exact same hardline and hostile government that the founders deliberately engineered with deep political and racial … [Read More its Good for You...]
