Review: Torment by Lauren Kate


About the book: This book is written by Lauren Kate.
It´s the second book in a trilogy, where you have to read the first one first. To be able to understand what it is all about.
Check out my review on the first book Fallen.

(ISBN13: 9780385739146)
452 pages

Read: English - November 2010

From Goodreads:
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.

The Story: Luce starts in a new school called Shoreline. This is an exclusive school, very different from Sword & Cross. Here she has to start all over again by getting new friends while trying to get her relationship to work.
Daniel is out hunting for Outcasts, so they wont get her. And Cam keeps on showing up.
Luce tries to figure out more about what the shadows are and what they are doing.

My Opinion: This is a great book. More triangle love affairs, in a teenage kind of way :P
There are a lot of issues known from the real world. Love problems, moving away from family and friends, starting over getting new friends etc.
But compared to the first one this one got more action in it. And there are much more happening.
I love the way the books are written, very easy to read :)
And I am just eager to read the next one. Think it´s up for release Summer 2011.
Very much looking forward to that :)
