4.5 stars - It was pretty good! 

Hell on earth.

That's what it's like for Luce to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel.

It took them an eternity to find one another, but now he has told her he must go away. Just long enough to hunt down the Outcasts - immortals who want to kill Luce. Daniel hides Luce at Shoreline, a school on the rocky California coast with unusually gifted students: Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans.

At Shoreline, Luce learns what the Shadows are, and how she can use them as windows to her previous lives. Yet the more Luce learns, the more she suspects that Daniel hasn't told her everything. He's hiding something - something dangerous.

What if Daniel's version of the past isn't actually true? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else?

The second novel in the addictive FALLEN series...where love never dies

So after finishing Fallen, I was pretty interested to know what would happen next.  I felt like there were so many mysteries that needed to be solved or questions to be answered.  To tell you the truth I felt like not many more questions were answered in this book than the last one.  But besides that fact I thought the book was pretty good.
Luce is back at another school that is probably just as different as the last one she went to.  This school is for Nephilim, offspring of fallen angels and humans.  Once again Luce is the different one out of the group and all the Nephilim kids seem to know who Luce is.  Some might even know more than her.  But as the days pass Luce finds two good friends, Miles and Shelby.  Even with some good friends Luce can't seem to just follow directions and not get into anything.  She wants to know all about her past lives and if Daniel is really telling the truth.  She needs to find out whether she belongs with Daniel or whether its been a lie this whole time.

So Daniel isn't in this book that much but he still plays an important role in Luce's life.  I really liked Luce's new friends in this book and how they were willing to help her despite the consequences.  Though at times I was worried about Luce and Daniel's relationship.  It feels like almost every second book of a series, the couple seems to lose trust in each other and almost fall apart.  But what Luce was able to find out was interesting.  I guess what I'm trying to say is that I loved the characters again but I was a little frustrated at the fact that Luce couldn't figure out the answers yet.  Overall it was a good book and leads to another good book.  Keep watching for my review of the third book, Passion.
