from the author's site:
There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.
Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.
It took a little bit for me to get into Fallen, but once I was hooked, I was hooked. I need to get a hold of Torment and Passion, pronto. Fallen reminded me of my favorite gothic stories where you're never sure who to trust. And in typical gothic style Luce has two guys to choose from and you're not sure who the safe choice is. Both seem dangerous and appealing at the same time.
If you like a good gothic tale with a classic love-triangle then I strongly recommend reading the Fallen books by Lauren Kate.
