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.

After reading Fallen, I could not help myself reading Torment. Whether I strongly enjoyed Fallen or not, I just had to know what was to happen next… it was okay. But I wasn't mind-blown like I had hoped.

In this second instalment, Luce is sent to Shoreline, a school out-the-way containing students with unusual gifts. A place where all have been told the tale of Daniel and Luce. Here, Luce learns about the history of Nephilim and of Fallen Angels, learning more than Daniel wants her to know. Whilst Luce is at Shoreline, Daniel is away attempting to eliminate all those who are trying to kill Luce, with an agreement for himself and Cam to put aside their dislikes towards one another to find them all in 18 days. Can their love stay true, or are they about to face some life-threatening obstacles that they will struggle to overcome?

Luce is a character to whom I have confirmed I dislike, she appears selfish and whiney, constantly. She can become increasingly annoying and all she thinks about is feelings. Feelings, feelings, feelings. It can become very tiresome. Cam is still my favourite, dark and mysterious he will make you suspect one thing and then mean the other.

The ending, it was a beautiful cliffhanger! As you know I absolutely LOVE cliffhangers, and this was definitely a beauty. However, I am contemplating as to whether I want to read Passion… what do you think?
