Book Review: Fallen by Lauren Kate

Lauren Kate's first novel in the Fallen series is by far my favourite out of all the books I've read this year.  The first of what will be a four volume set has definitely found in me a very loyal readers.  It's very easy to be drawn into the world of Sword & Cross and fall in love with Luce and Daniel.  I have no doubt that these star-crossed lovers will be facing many obststacles to their love in the future, but I desperately hope that it culminates in a happily ever after. I also found it refreshing to read a Young Adult novel with both of the heroine's parents not only alive buy loving and caring.  The only thing that did upset me was getting to the end and realizing I was going to have to wait until the fall to find out what happens next.  I sincerly hope that the sequel, Torment, is as entertaining and captivating as it's predecessor.
