In "Torment", fallen angel Daniel and his mortal love Lucinda think they are safe but evil forces are massing against them. As Luce learns more about her past, and discovers that the lives she's already lived hold the key to her future happiness; she starts to wonder if Daniel has told her the whole truth.
What if his version of events isn't the way things happened?
What if that means that she's really meant to be with someone else?

My Thoughts
After reading Fallen, I just knew I had to read the book that followed. Torment was everything I expected it to be. It was as good as the first- packed with twice as much the suspense, action and love.

Luce faces many challenges. She has to make difficult decisions that have been already made by Daniel. But does she follow them? Nope.  I liked her venerability and how she didn't know what to do most of the time.

Fortunately, Daniel appeared in this book quite often. I really love his character. I treasured the moments with Luce and Daniel however, as time passed by, she grew fond of another :(

The most shocking event was the ending. It always the last few moments of the book that surprises me. I can't believe what happened to Luce. It's impossible to figure how the story is going to carry on. 

I absoluetly love Lauren Kate's books! I love her writing and the way she expresses it. Fallen was a big hit for me and now I feel the same way with Torment. What can I say. AMAZING!

PASSION is to be released June 14th 2011!

  4. Whoa, so many books come out on June 14th! LOL I think one of the reasons I liked Torment better than Fallen was because I wasn't a huge fan of Daniel, but it's interesting to see that ppl have different opinions :) I'm a bit more fond of Cam lol. Great review :)
