Luce would die for Daniel.\r\n\r\nAnd she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn't need to be that way....\r\n\r\nLuce is certain that something - or someone - in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime...going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel...and finally unlock the key to making their love last.\r\n\r\nCam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history. Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames...forever.\r\n\r\nSweeping across centuries, PASSION is the third novel in the unforgettably epic FALLEN series.

Sooo, we have made it to book 3!  Let me tell you, it was a struggle to get through this book.  I had no idea that this series could get downright BORING!!  Irritatingly dumb, yes, but boring, UGH!!  I WOULD RATHER WATCH WALLPAPER PEEL than listen to Luce!!!  This author is like a broken record player, she constantly repeats herself, over and Over and OVER!!!  Come on Lauren Kate, if you were going to repeat yourself for 9 hours, could you have at least used different words instead of the same ones?!  And who came up with the book tittle??  Fallen was good for book #1, you nailed it with Torment on book 2 because it was torment to read it but book #3, Passion?? Passion about what? Oh wait, you mean “continue to build the passion of disgust for this series?” OK, I can agree with that. Recap: Daniel had spirited Luce off to “Nephilim High School”, where Luce learns that the story of her love for Daniel is as popular as Romeo and Juliet (and just as tragic) and everyone knows about it but Luce.  For 18 days, Luce is supposed to stay at this school and stay low.  But we all know Luce by now, she does everything she can to get herself into trouble and cause chaos.  By the time the 18 days are up, she has managed to have Thanksgiving dinner with her best friend from Dover High School, two Nephilim class mates, her parents and all the fallen angels from Sword and Cross.  After dinner there is a big show down between the “outcast” angels and the “fallen” angels over who gets Luce.  So what does Luce do?  She grabs an announcer, opens it up and says “So long everybody, I am angry and mad and want to figure things out alone because you guys won’t tell me the truth and I don’t like you” and poof!  She jumps inside like a spoil little child!  (How could an author write their main character so dumb and still want everyone who reads the books to love her???????) This book should have never been written.  Out of the four books in this series, this book was not needed at all.  Nothing came from this book!  No revelation about Luce and Daniel was in this book.  This book was a complete waste of time.  If people are brave enough to read this series, trust me, skip book 3 and move on!!  This book was more a “novella” than part of the series.  Daniel is barely in the book at all.  All he is doing is chasing after Luce and always shows up a “day late and a dollar short”.  Now Luce on the other hand, spends 9 hours and 40 minutes (of the book) flitting from past life to past life trying to figure out why her and Daniel love each other so much.  Along the way she finds a friend, that teaches her how to “cleave” to herself to experience the past “in the flesh”, whose name is Bill.  Of all the beautiful names all through this book, her friend in this book is Bill.  And guess who Bill turns out to be?!  Yes, saw this one coming a mile away, Satan.  SATAN?!  Lauren Kate you nicknamed Satan, Bill?????  Facepalm yourself!!  Now what do we learn in this book, NOTHING!! Nothing at all!!!  Like I said, you could skip this book completely and you would not miss a thing going from book 2 to book 4. The Narrator of the book is Justine Eyre.  And that is about as nice as I can get about her. The most enjoyable part about this book was reading the reviews.  I must say I have never enjoyed reading book reviews so much till I read the reviews for the Fallen Series!!  Pop some popcorn, grab a soda, use the bathroom first (or you will pee yourself) and curl up for some great reading!!!!  Now the people who wrote the reviews know how to write.  Lauren Kate, take notes if you want to continue selling books. P.S. I still love the book covers!!!
