Luce Price has been sent to Swords and Cross boarding school in Georgia. It is a school for delinquent kids. Right from the start Luce is draw to two boys Cam and Daniel. Cam is flirty and seems into her. And Daniel wants nothing to do with her. Not sure why Luce tries to figure out what is going on. She is also wondering why the shadows she has seen all her life are so much worse now that she is at this school.
Daniel Grigori has been in love with Luce Price for many centuries. But every time they kiss for the first time or he explains what is going on, Luce dies. And Daniel has to wait 17 years before he finds her again. But it hurts so much seeing her so he decides to try another strategy of ignoring her. But of course it doesn’t work. They are drawn to each other always.
But something amazing happens. When he tells her what he is and explains everything, she doesn’t die. Nor does she die when they kiss. Believing they might finally be together, Daniel will do everything to protect Luce.
I really enjoyed this book. The friends Luce makes and the love that lasts forever. This is the first book in the Fallen series. Book two is Torment, then Passion and the last book Rapture is available June 2012.
