RAPTURE, the fourth & final FALLEN novel, is the Lauren Kate book the world has been waiting for.

I have read the whole series, including Fallen in love, the short novel released prior to the final book in the series. While I am writing the review I will also say that this series is a must read for all fallen angel novel enthusiasts (hush hush for example).
In the final chapter it's crunch time for Luce and Daniel. Time is running out as lucifer and his brethren fall the nine day long descent from heaven into his trap, the trap that swipes the slate clean. Resets the curse and all that went with it. Blinking it all out of existence.
Now obviously I love the books, Lauren's excellent idea is beautiful illustrated across all the novels especially in passion and rapture which happen to my favourite. I found fallen and torment dragged a little whereas the final two books are packed with action, amazing angel lore, history, locations, exceptional characters and an amazing plot (which I was slightly gutted about as it was an idea I'd been playing with!). Some find Lauren's writing style a little difficult. Heaps of description and slow points being the main faults but those are really only present in the earlier books. While the descriptive paragraphs are still frequent they are toned down an the main plot is what takes focus.
The mystery of Luce and Daniels curse... Well I for one thought it was pure genius, an excellent plot point in the book and while I sort of saw some of it coming I think it was beautifully executed.
Anyway, 8/10 from me (but more for personal reasons and the over description as I like to get to the action)

I just couldnt get into any of these books and I got them all, sadly ! I kept reading and reading and the book was going NO WHERE. Myself, I like a book to MOVE fairly quickly with the story line but I cant even tell ya where it was going except to some donated library ! Read full review
