    When I picked up this book, it had been about nine months since I read Fallen, and the choking feeling had subsided I wondered, what if I was wrong What if the first book was just a false start Maybe I should give Kate another chance I m pathetic I know this You don t have to tell me.If I m being honest, I will hold my hands up and say that Torment is a monumental improvement on Fallen The writing style is less sticky and doesn t cut itself off Every Five Words.The first two or three chapters were good And I mean good not great, but good enough At that simple stage, I could see the San Francisco setting and the early descriptions of Shoreline were fine Shelby and Miles were fine too Quirky Likable It kind of went downhill from there Kate has surely attempted to make Luce and Daniel s relationship healthy by having Luce question her destiny , but that s not really what s going on here, is it No What s going on here is an emotional mud wrestle between two completely ill equipped morons with the collective mental capacity of a sesame seed Guys, healthy relationships are about mutual understanding, respect and consent Healthy relationships are not about cheating on your partner just to get a rise out of them, dictating what your partner should look like and being disappointed when they decide to change their appearance, or trying to flatten your partner s personality and individuality to such an extent that they are incapable of being apart from you for eighteen days Come on That s not even three weeks.Look, 90% of Luce and Daniel s conversations go like this Daniel I am mad at you for doing X.Luce I am mad at you for doing Y.Daniel But I am infatuated with the idea of you.Luce I am still mad at you for doing Y.Daniel kisses Luce Luce Y doesn t matter any I like your muscles.Daniel I m leaving.Luce alone I am angry at Daniel for doing Y.I know No author is perfect, but let s be real here This isn t so much a book as really sexual bible fanfiction And honestly, if it were fanfiction, I d probably enjoy it But I paid money for this shit I paid money for Luce to wonder, Who was she without Daniel Nobody should ever be in a relationship wherein a legitimate concern is who you actually are outside of that relationship Another person s personality is not for sharing, and frankly, you shouldn t want to be one half of a whole How is that functional in any way, shape or form How is that healthy But it s so true of the Luce Daniel dynamic, though, isn t it I could write a dissertation on this It s this constant wonder, of how anyone can possibly write such shallow characters with such an unconvincing liking for each other, and yet somehow be invested in the story How could you think this was interesting We are reading this book and picturing two wobbly blobs of nothing slowly revolve around each other It s like sitting through a ten hour video of the moon revolving around the earth in real time Like, nothing but that Just one rock moving around the other rock It seems like it might be mildly interesting and then when you actually experience it, it s just what it says on the tin One rock going around another rock This just got so existential And I get it I get Kate trying to portray that Luce wants her own life and her own independence But this is not living or being independent Free thinking is not about bleaching your hair or crying about an eighteen day relationship hiatus as if the thing that got removed for eighteen days was not your boyfriend but all the skin on your face it s about seeking out your interests and figuring out what path you want to take in life, not your first world problems with your pushy, overbearing boyfriend I mean seriously This book reads like a pamphlet on white cishet rich people s problems On the portrayal of healthy relationships take a look at Steven and Francesca s horrible dynamic Francesca and Steven apparently do nothing but hatefuck and talk about how they ll kill each other when the time comes How is this even a thing We re served this tale of an angel and a demon let s put a pin in the total mythology fail for the sake of argument but all we get is some weird angry Nip Tuckesque dynamic between two people who apparently hate each other but kind of love each other even though they openly hate one another s species and moral choices.And continuity What is continuity We have the Announcers which function as deus ex machina and an easy out for exposition but there isn t even a cover story to try to hide that they re a plot device painted the colour of a plot device wearing a sandwich board across which the words PLOT DEVICE are written What are they Portals Fortune tellers Time warps WHAT And what was the conflict here The Outcasts The Elders The demons Luce and Daniel PICK ONE The end is another whole big thing, but simply because I don t know how on earth we managed to reach that conclusion Is Kate trying to tell us that the best way to resolve the problems right in front of our faces is to run away from them Luce suddenly jumps inside the Announcer and no one bothers to stop her without even the courtesy of an explanation This is following a battle wherein she demonstrates some good old fashioned Mary Sue I m going to battle even if you tell me not to, then pretend like I saved the day when really I did nothing The end of the battle scene freaked me out, too Why was everyone just standing around talking How did blind angels manage to hook their arrows on to their bows Why was everyone just waiting patiently while they loaded their weapons Why is Luce the price Why did Cam give up on Luce so quickly Why do Gabbe s wings smell like Herbal Essences Why is this a book What is literature What is life And, through this, the only question I was really interested in How was Luce s parent s walk Did they have a nice time Overall, this book was, prose wise, much better than Fallen, though that isn t an amazing achievement in itself Because I love you all, here are some examples of dreadful writing a Daniel s beautiful features distorted into a scary expression b Miles pulled away, looking happy and sad at the same time c Roland hovered over to him Literally He was flying d I know he would die if you died e Deep chartreuse, glittering gold, marbleized swaths of pink and purple Note The Outcasts are blind, but locate Luce by seeing the burning of her soul because apparently there is something behind her mask face that resembles a personality If they see her by the burning of her soul , why do they mistake Dawn for Luce Surely if they are not looking for aesthetics i.e hair colour and facial features, just the burning of her fucking soul then Look, fuck it I fucking give up To conclude This book is balls This series is a disaster Luce and Daniel are like a poor man s Bedward The only thing that remains to be seen is Daniel eating a baby out of Luce s womb.There s always hope

    To Daniel Grigori From Inge Date May 27th 2012 6 59 PMSubject Fuck youDear Daniel Grigori,Words can t even begin to describe my feelings towards you, but I m gonna have a go anyway I feel like this is important You need to know how people feel about you.I have allergic reactions to you You are so full of shit Even in a book where you don t appear all that often, it s still all about you, you, you, isn t it You are by far the most selfish, self centered, narcissistic bastard I have ever had the displeasure of reading about You are even worse than Edward Cullen and Damen Auguste, combined You put the suck in fun sucking You put the ew in jiu jiutsu I wish I could head butt you and drive a cactus up your ass, followed by one of those starshots I want to drive that cactus so far up your ass, the person who s able to get it out will be crowned the next King Arthur I want to do all kinds of painful things to you and not in a Fifty Shades of Grey way.It must feel good, doesn t it, knowing everyone is waiting for you to make the most important decision ever The decision to tip the scale between good and evil Everyone knows who you are I bet it strokes your big fat ego I bet your huge ego makes up for whatever is or isn t down your pants Why would anyone possibly want to be with you Even someone as dense as Lucinda Price knows there s something off about you She kisses someone else, but do you take the hint No, you just continue bossing her around and telling her what to do Well, guess what Welcome to the 21st century, Mr Grigori Douchebaggery is no longer sexy.Speaking of Luce your relationship with her continues to define asshole on a whole new level You know she dies whenever you kiss her, but in the thousands of years that you ve known her, did that ever stop you from thinking with your penis Nooo You just keep on chasing your pecker and kill her every time you lay your dirty old hands on her, ruining the lives of everyone around her Sure, she s not that interesting, but people have grown to love her and you take it away every single time Don t you ever learn The way you treat others astounds me Why would anyone want to be around you No wonder you have no friends You re a total downer and no one wants to join your pity party Even at the end of the book, when Luce just can t get away from you quickly enough, you still act like the arrogant son of a bitch that you are, completely ignore all the others and decide that you know best, leaving all of them behind, wallowing in your arrogance and thinking you can do this all by yourself Sure, you don t need any help, because you re so perfect, right You re just a fucking rocket scientist, aren t you I ll tell you what you are You re an asshat You re a first class, one hundred percent, royal asshat Like Shelby said, you don t even know this Luce But she does, because she actually spent quality time with Luce without being a dominant prick The Luce of this lifetime is obviously doing something right because she s running away from you, which is something she should have done a looong time ago If not in this lifetime at the very beginning when you gave her the finger, then in the lifetimes before this one.You suck You suck hairy monkey testicles You are, essentially, a raging thundercunt.Love,Inge

    SPOILER WARNING As in if you thought you were in for a good read this will spoil it Also SWEAR WARNING because I just can t get through this review without swearing I need some release I have had to take a break from my reading of Torment to get this off my chest I hated Fallen Everything about it was incredibly one dimensional and at the end I felt like I still knew nothing, none of the big questions had been answered Like I was reading blind folded, was out of the loop and nothing was resolved Ok, I thought, so maybe you are supposed to feel that way because Luce does Now before I started reading Torment, a year had passed, the anger had subsided and I was ready to forgive Kate naively thinking that the sequel would be a satisfying ride I was wrong.In Torment none of this changes, it just gets worse This book made me want to hurl it across the room on many occasions 1 Every time TSTL To Stupid To Live Luce goes against every single warning anyone in the know gives her and puts herself in danger over and over again and2 Every time Luce asks someone a question we are dying to find out, we get a vague sliver of information, only to have an ACTUAL ANSWER bafflingly snatched away from us Here are some glaring examples, it usually goes a little something like this a Luce Daniel, you aren t letting me in, the whole reason I am TSTL is because you don t tell me anything, so I don t know what I m supposed to be afraid of Mmmmm Daniel nodded, stared moodily into the distance, but did not tell her anything.b Arriane Oh, wait til I tell you the whole juicy story of the fall, it is the best thing since sliced bread This story will be the ride of your lives Your heads will explode when I tell it to you Are you ready Ok, it all started when Oh Wait, sorry I have to go fight someone now Raincheck PS She never finishes this apparently mind blowing story Now that is just plain rude c Luce to Basically Everyone I wouldn t keep putting myself in danger every chapter if someone would PLEASE TELL ME WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON Basically Everyone Well if you aren t psychic then we aren t going to help you figure it out Now let s change the subject Yes, would someone please tell us The bit on the balcony where Luce thinks her and Daniel are finally having a mature conversation only to have him go mysterious and cryptic than ever before I literally wanted to punch him in the face Actually, that goes for every single time he appears, I don t care how glorious or blonde he is The guy is a COMPLETE DOUCHE BAG.I have never been frustrated by a book or book series in my life.It is like Lauren Kate thinks she is upping the suspense if every single crucial piece of information is dangled just beyond our noses, but never given, forcing us to read until the end in the vain hope of getting some answers And in the case of Fallen, getting to the end and finding out that we would have to wait A WHOLE NOTHER YEAR until she could torture us with the proverbial carrot again.The woman is evil Now, I have not quite finished Torment, and I cannot stop reading now But if that bitch ends on the same note as Fallen which I know is a distinct possibility because there is another book after this one , I refuse to buy one of her books EVER AGAIN.Will continue reading Stay tuned Ok, so I just finished torment You must think me as dense as Luce because, lo and behold, she left us on another frickin cliff hanger of crucial information WHY Why does she have to use this as a tool to force us to buy her next book Why can t it just be the anticipation of another exhilarating, well written adventure and spending time with the hero and heroine the reader has fallen in love with Oh wait, that s because if I have to spend one moment with these Idiotic characters I will throw a starshot at both of them and save everyone the hassle.So the big final carrots that she dangles in front of us in the last chapter are Luce is some kind of a big deal from the outcasts we need retribution , I will yield to you and we need to trade you to get into heaven Luce is an angel or other heavenly being Daniel s fear of her being hit by a starshot when humans can t be killed by them, and his guilty gaze when she thought it couldn t hurt her.Now the thing I hated about the prologue the most was the whole Shelly had a crush on me but I never reciprocated Was that supposed to be our only OH moment at the end PATHETIC Like making us believe there was a miniscule chance he had been unfaithful to his eternal ly stupid love was the biggest reveal in the story That was it That was what I waited the whole frickin book for For fuck s sake So anyway, what I am thinking is that the big OH moment in Kate s next book, Passion, will that Luce is actually Lucifer But since I refuse to read one grating word of Lauren Kate s, you will have to fill me in.

    Never has a book been so aptly titled Reading this book was a kind of torment, and I don t say that solely because I was stuck in an airport for an ungodly number of hours with only this ass book as company The only fitting title would maybe be something like Shit Sandwich.It s a special talent to write a sequel that makes me long for its extremely implausible, poorly written predecessor And yet, here we are Shit Sandwich Torment picks up where Fallen left off Luce is being whisked away after the Epic Showdown of Angels and Demons Which Takes Place Outside While Our Brainless Heroine Is Tied to an Altar for Sacrifice She feels guilty that the people she loves continue to DIE HORRIBLY two random boys spontaneously combust her one nice friend gets her throat slit by the extremely sketchy librarian cum member of some obscure sect of fuck I don t know if they re good or evil because anyone wanting Luce dead can t be all bad Edward Edwardiel Daniel, Luce s Hot Piece of Fallen Angel, has conferred with various other who the fuck cares people and or celestial formerly celestial beings and decided the safest place for Luce is a large glass jar with a bunch of breathing holes punched into the metal lid an exclusive boarding school somewhere in California ETA It s San Francisco Kate describes the Golden Gate Bridge as candy apple red This tells me one of three things 1 Lauren Kate has never been to San Francisco, 2 Lauren Kate has never seen a candy apple, or 3 Lauren Kate is colorblind Luce s parents and one non dead friend are to believe she is still at her reform school Apparently lots of otherworldly beings everywhere want Luce dead, and honestly, I don t blame them If ever a girl was asking for being killed for sheer stupidity, it is Luce Anyway, Daniel tells Luce she ll be safe at this school, that maybe she ll learn a thing or two, and that it is VERY IMPORTANT that she not leave the campus Now, if my one reform school friend had just been murdered, and I d just discovered I died and was reincarnated every seventeen years but because I hadn t been baptized in this lifetime, I d just die this time around and the entire universe s fate depended on what happened with me, I would maybe think that PERHAPS A LOT OF THINGS OUT THERE WERE TRYING TO KILL ME If my broody angel boyfriend told me I d be safe as long as I stayed on campus, I d maybe take him seriously.Here are some things I wouldn t do If I m explicitly told I should not let anyone know where I really am or use my teacher s borrowed cell phone to contact anyone who doesn t know what s going on, I immediately text my vapid friend from my first elite boarding school the one where I accidentally set a boy on fire or something If I received a nondescript note supposedly from my angel boyfriend for all time telling me to meet him at some obscure location by taking a seedy bus when hello, he s an ANGEL WITH WINGS AND CAN FLY AND ALSO HE TOLD ME NOT TO LEAVE THE CAMPUS, I of course automatically assume the note is legit and immediately sneak off campus to meet him If I were to sneak off campus anyway and see Cam, the demon guy I used to think was cute but now don t trust because he s ZOMG a demon, and he saves my life from one of the Outcasts, a bunch of blind fallen angels side note it is at this point I realize that the Fallen quadrilogy is basically a giant version of the film The Warriors , I would look upon him unfavorably and fight him all the way back to campus as he s trying to, you know, get me back to safety After my fallen angel boyfriend reminds me AGAIN how I shouldn t leave campus as if the attempt on my life the last time I left campus weren t enough to be SCARED STRAIGHT , I d immediately go on a yachting adventure the next weekend Where there is another attempt on my life During said attempt on my life where Alice Cullen someone who looks like Luce is pulled overboard and dragged underwater several times , I immediately leap into the water and let go of the life preserver because only I KNOW HOW TO SWIM IT IS MY ONE SKILL I SWIIIIIIIM And also because of course there s no way the powerful demon on board could save her If my snooty boarding school teachers who teach special classes for the Nephilim on this later told me not to fuck around with the Announcers the strange shadows that have plagued Luce her whole life , I would go to the woods right after class and fuck around with the Announcers After my angel demon teacher duo says, after figuring out I have been fucking around with the Announcers, in no uncertain terms that we really, really, REALLY are not to fuck around with the Announcers, I fuck around some with the Announcers, involving my roommate and this new boy Miles whose name anagrams to SLIME When I fuck around with the Announcers, I see a glimpse of a former life and parents who might still be alive I leave campus AGAIN with my roommate to go stalk them Through another fucking around with Announcers, I see someone else from a past life in Vegas I get Miles and roommate to open a portal and travel by Announcer wtf to Vegas Which, in case you did not know, is also OFF CAMPUS Even though I overhear the demons and angels talking about a truce, when I see an Announcer show Daniel and Cam working together, I decide Daniel must be EEEEVILLLLLL When all the Outcasts show up at my house, and the angels and demons are all fighting outside and tell me to stay safe inside the house, I definitely run outside and put myself in the line of danger When the Outcast threatens a cute boy, I offer myself up instead of him After many warnings about walking into Announcers without proper training or checking, I leap into an Announcer at the end of the book because I just can t handle the pressure.Yeah, I wouldn t do any of those things.So, Luce has managed to become even stupider in this book than she was in the first Great job Are Luce and Daniel as unlikable as ever HELLS YEAH Every single interaction between the two can be summed up as follows 1 Daniel shows up, surprising Luce.2 Luce thinks about how hot he is.3 Daniel kisses her.4 Luce loses herself in the hottttness of the kissing and his rippling muscles.5 Daniel says something stupid about her hair or chastises her for leaving campus and endangering not only herself, but the entire universe.6 Luce thinks, OMG WE HAVE NOTHING IN COMMON AND HE IS SO CONTROLLING AND BEING A WOMAN MEANS I GET TO MAKE CHOICES FUCKING STUPID CHOICES 7 Daniel senses Luce pulling away.8 Luce senses Daniel s sensing of her pulling away.9 Daniel senses Luce s sensing of his sensing of her pulling away.10 Luce gets huffy.11 Daniel warns Luce and tells her it s all because he loves her, but never explains WHY any of this is happening, because SHE CAN T HANDLE THE TRUTH.12 Luce is filled with doubts.13 Daniel flutters away with his man angel wings.14 Luce plans her next stupid adventure fucking around with Announcers.Lather, rinse, repeat, blind yourself like Oedipus But this book is far, far worse than killing your dad and fucking your mom.You know what I just realized These books are agonizing because Luce is like that dumbass bimbo in slasher flicks who gets killed in the first five minutes She s the stupid one who s like, Oh hey I don t care if there s an axe murderer in the woods I m going to have a lot of sex and then wander around and think every snapping twig is my boyfriend instead of the axe murderer wearing a hockey mask, LOLZ But you don t have to suffer very long, because she gets killed off quickly BUT LUCE NEVER DIES Not in this book, not in this series I mean, hells, she keeps getting reincarnated She is plaguing humankind for eternity YOU CANNOT KILL OFF THE LUCE Daniel says early in the book or maybe at the end of the last one that Luce should trust her instincts HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I m sorry, I just soiled myself Never have I read of a character with worse instincts And, yes, while Daniel is a bit of a chauvinist ass for not telling Luce a goddamned thing about why she should stay on campus, why Cam is working with them, etc., Luce doesn t exactly show herself as being able to handle basic logic and common sense So I can see why he wouldn t trust her with this information, and definitely understand why in previous lives, telling her that he s an angel has made her die from brain explosion.If their love is supposed to be romantic because it s cursed and verboten , sign me up for celibacy They never communicate they distrust each other they get along only when they re covering each other with torrid kisses they have absolutely nothing to talk about except OMG I LOVE YOU MY LOVE FOR YOU IS ETERNAL AND CARRIES ACROSS EVERY LIFETIME LET US TALK ONLY ABOUT OUR LOVE AND GAZING INTO EACH OTHER S EYES At the same time, how strong is this love and how worthy is Luce of such love if she s immediately considering every boy as a prospective boyfriend Ohhhh, Miles is so cuuute, those EYES are DREAMY, and he s uncomplicated and funny and considerate and HUGS her and makes her POPCORN and opens the Announcer portal for her to go to OFF CAMPUS VEGAS And now, a list of things that are so laughably implausible that I soiled myself again so, this boarding school Is for Nephilim, which is some term for anyone with any angel blood in them Are you an angel Would you like a little angel in you BUT It s a hidden program in a regular elite boarding school, so we ve got Muggles in Hogwarts in the remedial classes Imagine All the honors classes are for the fancy angel kids, and the smart Muggles have to be given impossible tests if they want to qualify for the program which they will inevitably fail I mean, why the fuck keep up this ruse They can t possibly be accredited Also, Kate has an annoying way of writing all white characters and then throwing in a few ethnic tokens They aren t given any characteristics other than that Korean girl or Sarah Wong Wang Chung the Chinese kid Angels and demons fight only with YE OLDE FASHIONEDE WEAPONNES So, bows, arrows, and fencing Hence, a fencing lesson All the other kids have had tons of fencing training, but not Luce Oh no, she has to fight IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME AT ANGEL FENCING CLUB, YOU MUST FENCE Of course she s brilliant at it and beats the crap out of the bitchy angel girl she s fighting I m sorry, I m trying to imagine Armageddon with a bunch of angels and demons wearing white fencing outfits and facemasks, and no, just no I think Kirk Cameron being whisked away in the first wave of the LEFT BEHIND series is believable You know how Luce called the Announcers shadows in the last book Because they looked all shadowy Well, apparently she is a SOOPER GEENYUS because she was actually likening them to Plato s Cave, and how the images contained in the Announcers are mere shadows, distortions, of what they reflect or represent Plato Luce Plato Price Yep There s an OUTCAST at the school We ve been told Outcasts are blind and can find people only by the glow of their burning souls Even with several angel halfbloods, a bunch of real angels and demons and angels and demons, NO ONE SENSES that the weird albino kid with the almost see through eyes just MIGHT BE an Outcast Which I figured out the first time he was described Maybe Kate is just trying to make her readers feel really smart I m still hung up on trust your instincts HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA As if lifting many plot elements from Twilight in the first book weren t bad enough, in the second, Lauren Kate tries rather ham fistedly to insert a love triangle Once again Now that Cam is no longer appealing due to his DEMON status, we have to introduce SLIME Miles He s uncomplicated And kind And maybe he can give her the life, the normal life that she should have, the one that doesn t end with Luce the Human Torch At one point, Luce even says, If you two were going to be that obvious about it, why didn t you guys come down in your Team Daniel and Team Miles T shirts STOP TRYING TO MAKE ANNOYING TWILIGHT LOVE TRIANGLE HAPPEN IT S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN It s like Plato s Cave version of the annoying Jacob Edward Bella triangle, which was fucking annoying enough in the first place So you ve got an assy copy of something that already sucks Good work Seriously, are we ever going to address the whole when I am around normal human boys, sometimes they spontaneously combust thing This is neither here nor there, but your enjoyment of this book may be greatly enhanced by replacing wings with balls in your mind as you read For example His broad white balls seemed to be edged with violet light and were pulsing nearly imperceptibly in the rough wind Her hands were wrapped tight around his neck, then stroked the firm muscles on his shoulders, brushing the soft, thick perimeter of his balls They were strong and white and shimmering, always so much bigger than she remembered Two great balls extending from his sides, every inch of them perfect and smooth She could feel a tension against her fingers, like touching a tightly stretched canvas But silkier, and deliciously velvet soft They seemed to respond to her touch, even extending forward to rub against her, pulling her closer, until she was buried in them, nestling deeper and deeper, and still never getting enough COME ON, THAT S AWESOME When it s about balls But instead of the stars and trees and crashing waves, Luce s eyes fixed on something else behind one of the roof s many chimneys Something white and billowing An iridescent pair of balls an enormous pair of golden balls split through his gray cashmere sweater They unfurled behind him, taking up most of the kitchen Cam s balls were so bright they were almost blinding as they pulsed Roland s balls unfurled with a sound like a great flock of birds taking flight They lamplight in the kitchen highlighted their dark gold and black marbling as he squeezed out the door after Cam Daniel took Luce s hands in his He closed his eyes, inhaled, and let his massive white balls unfurl Fully extended, they would have filled the entire kitchen, but Daniel reined them in, close to his body They shimmered and glowed and looked altogether too beautiful Luce reached out and touched them with both hands Warm and satin smooth on the outside, but inside, full of power AWESOME When it s about balls I think I will employ the balls technique to make it through the next book Which I m reading solely so I can bitch about it here.

    I will always catch you when you fall I have to say Torment is not bad at all, in my opinion The parts that keeps me continuing this series are the setting and riddles Gah I want to know about Luce and Daniel s past What has happened between them that makes Daniel so cryptic like this And there must be something about Luce for she can summon the Announcer like a pro About the truce made by Daniel and Cam, I think consequences must come after it ends The End Game is coming Would he find her Without question.Would he save her Always Well, I loved and hated this book at the same time Torment tormented me since the first chapter I was dying to know after the ending of book one, yet I didn t get many answers from this book, and it upsetted me Instead of clearing all the conflicts that has been escalating since Fallen, Kate decided to create them anew They re growing and growing that I m afraid whether she can answer the questions that is floating in my head by the end of book four.I just don t understand, in this book, why Luce and Daniel always bicker and come with a new issue whenever they see each other It was acceptable for the first time, but the second and the third were awful It was unbearable to see this happened at least three times through the book Luckily, the ending just saves it all Moreover, I caught a glimpse of the likelihood of the next book, which could be better than this one I know he would die if you died, Luce However, the fight in the last chapter was stupid and didn t make sense at all Luce is useless and annoying, and she s a drama queen who makes everything worse than it should be I could understand the way Daniel has treated her through this book forces she to this path, but I was not okay when they could have talked about it sooner and these problem wouldn t happen.By the way, Torment is as enjoyable as Fallen I loved the feelings this book gave me as if I was reading New Moon again Daniel keeping distance from Luce reminded me of Edward breaking up with Bella and she and Jacob get together after that And Daniel s love for Luce overcomes the bad things in this series Love never dies.

    Dear Ms KateI Don t Like Fallen.I don t like this series i don t like the characters, the development of the story, the secret life of Lucinda Price, the archangels, mainly all the angels from your story, the Outcasts, the heavenly never ending war between good and bad.I just don t like your piece of shit story However, i do keep reading this series Why Because i have a need for badly written, made by brainless authors YA fiction and stupid non feminists Therefor, this will not be a happy rating Deal with it I will get straight to the point, starting with the things that bothered me most Why won t you tell us about Lucindas past What on earth could be so dramatically that Daniel simply can t tell without Lucinda busting into flames Also, excuse me my language, but fuck Daniel Having constipation is interesting than reading about his life and feelings and wanting to protect his Luce from eternal danger This gets old Quick Seriously, Kate, give us some feministic domination here Why does so many authors underestimate the power of a good, butt kicking heroine Why does Lucinda has to be kept safe all the time Why is Daniel overprotective No, heaven forbid that anything should happen to Lucinda arrogant bitch Price, because they have crossed paths since forever, and since she has used up your quota of rebirths, things seem kinda black.Lucinda is an annoying part of the books No wait, she is the most annoying thing in the books Her arrogance and self indulgence is raw annoying She meet her roommate, Shelby, in chapter two, and after eight minutes in her company, she could conclude that she seemed annoying Just because she wasn t a member of the Lucinda Price fanclub.The bad mythology is but one thing of the list Where did you do your research, Kate Come on, you can do better Some things in the book bothered meFirst things first Lucinda Price s meeting with Cam at Noyo Point The whole part was a joke She said she d falled for his lies too many times WHUUUT When did Cam ever lie to you Yeah, he didn t tell you he was an angel, but do you know what DANIEL DIDN T EITHER Oh, now we re at Daniel part Daniel doesn t think that Luce would wish she could have said that she didn t thought it, but she wasn t sure if that was what she was feeling.Luce, WE DON T GIVE A FLYING FUCK ABOUT WHAT DANIEL THINKS GOT IT maybe Daniel had talk to her like that once, but she was sure that she d never tolerated itNo, definitely not, you hypocritical piece of bad heroine.Another thing that bothered me was Why the heck is Lucinda Price famous at Shoreline That s like taking an old, moldy pie, and add a smelly cup of milk It s just gross, and definitely not something, somebody would like to have So this makes me wonder Why did you serve that pie for your readers Do you hate them Making Luce famous on Shoreline was a bad trick Making everybody confident with the Luce Daniel relationship was even worse Why did you try to make Luce a celebrity Cause by doing that, you have made your heroine act even worse Congratulations You must be proud Oh, and Kate Before i tear this book apart, i just wanna tell you something In the heavenly eternal fight between good and evil, only two sites are available That means you can t tell us that the Outcast were something in between THAT IS SIMPLY NOT POSSIBLEI think i know why this book is called Torment because it was tormenting to finish this.
