Fallen in Love

by Lauren Kate

Random House. Young Adult, Fantasy. Paperback RRP $22.95

Reviewer - Barbara Brown

Everyone who is a fan of Lauren Kate and her Fallen series, will love this unexpected interlude showing extra glimpses of the star-crossed lovers, Luce and Daniel.

Fallen in Love relates the love stories of a number of the characters in the series. Four individual stories, set in medieval England on the eve of Valentine’s Day, entwine together and explain why some of the characters act and the way they do now in contemporary time.

This collection of short stories is not a chronological volume in the Fallen series. However, it does continue on from Passion, following extracts of the storyline. It is a must read if you want to know what happens to Luce and Daniel on that night hundreds of years before.

Fallen in Love also comes with a free downloadable Fallen Books app from the App Store or Android Marketplace, where you can watch the front cover come to life and Lauren Kate talks about her books. A very clever marketing tool in this modern world.

Fallen, Torment and Passion are the first three books in this wonderful story of love, right and wrong, good and evil, heaven, earth and hell. And I would definitely recommend them. Rapture, the final tome will be out the middle of 2012.

The Reading Stack reviewed Fallen, Torment  and Passion in February, February 2011 and June 2011 respectively and The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove in September 2011.
