452 Pages
Delacorte Press
Author: Lauren Kate

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 Sword & Cross boarding school in Savannah. He's the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are screwups, and security cameras watch every move.
Except Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce-he goes out of his way to make that very clear. But she can't let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, Luce has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret....
even if it kills her.

Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, FALLEN is a page-turning thriller and the ultimate love story.

Lucinda Price is deffinatley a piece of work, she finds herself in a creepy reform school, Sword & Cross, as a result of an accident she had no control over, but was held responsible for.
New to Sword & Cross, Luce feels constant displacement as she tries to forget the past that has brought her to this disconnect from the rest of the world.
She finds herself in the mix of a new beau Cam, who is always kind to her and tries to make her belong.. with him. However her first day she comes across, Daniel, and can't shake the feeling that she is drawn to him- no matter how rude he is to her and tries to ignore her attention.
Let's not forget the shadows that have haunted Luce since she can remember, and how intense the shadows have become since her arrival...soon another accident has now found its way into the fate of Luce and an innocent bystander, leaving Todd, also a new student, dead.
Luce has found herself in a tough, confusing situation and doesn't have a clue how complex things really are, she's just barely scratched the surface when things get really difficult as Cam and Daniel begin to fight over her...
This story brings you through the beginning of her journey- finding out the truth about her love for Daniel and why he has been pushing her away.. and the truth about Daniel, what he really is.

This story is wonderfully written- scary, romantic, and unforgetable. Really the story opens up in the last 150 pages... but the other 302 pages are just as important and great! The chapters walk you through each relationship Luce holds with the students and people near her, divulging more about the secrets of the students and Luce's past.. and each chapter your curiosity grows and just keep you wanting more and more..
