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

The sky is dark with wings. . . .
Like sand through an hourglass, time is running out for Luce and Daniel. To stop Lucifer from erasing the past, they must find the place where the angels fell to earth.
Dark forces are after them, and Daniel doesn’t know if he can do this—live only to lose Luce again and again. Yet together they face an epic battle that will end with lifeless bodies . . . and angel dust. Great sacrifices are made. Hearts are destroyed.
And suddenly Luce knows what must happen. For she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel. The curse they’ve borne has always and only been about her—and the love she cast aside. The choice she makes now is the only one that truly matters. In the fight for Luce, who will win?
The astonishing conclusion to the FALLEN series. Heaven can’t wait any longer.

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)
Have recommended it frequently
