Seventeen-Year-Old Luce is a new student at Sword & Cross, an unwelcoming boarding/reform school in Savannah, Georgia. Luce’s boyfriend died under suspicious circumstances, and now she carries the guilt over his death with
her as she navigates the unfriendly halls at Sword & Cross, where every student seems to have an unpleasant—even evil—history.
It’s only when she sees Daniel, a gorgeous fellow student, that Luce feels there’s areason to be here—though she doesn’t know what it is. And Daniel’s frosty cold demeanor toward her? It’s really a protective device that he’s used again . . . and again. For Daniel is a fallen angel, doomed to fall in love with the same girl every 17 years . . . and watch her die. And Luce is a fellow immortal, cursed to be reincarnated again and again as a mortal girl who has no idea of who she really is.
WOW! A mystifyingly awesome book.
I completely LOVED it. I read it all in one sitting. It was just that good!
Page after page, the thrilling events all kept me engaged and reading. There was nothing confusing. Everything is plain and simple. Definitely easy to understand.
I love the way Daniel and Luce met. It wasn't the typical cliche- love at first sight. She saw him. He saw her. Then flipped her off. LOL. Very unique I'll say.
The way Daniel's and Luce's relationship grows and deepens is very intense. I like how it develops and how their first kiss is near the end of the book. Its not sudden but something to wait for.
I love the whole concept of angels especially how Daniel's wondrous wings are described. The events are constant and consuming.
Lauren Kate really knows how to keep a reader engaged. A breathtaking read.
Cant wait to read Torment!
