Fallen Series by Lauren Kate

Fallen (Fallen, #1)Fallen by Lauren Kate
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a decent read that kept me turning the pages. I liked it overall. It’s extremely romance-centric, which normally suits me fine, but I just wished for a tiny bit more in terms of plot, conflict, resolution, and world building.

I went on to read the rest of the series, but if I had to pick among the many series that deal with fallen angels, this would be about halfway down the list. The writing is good, overall. If supernatural romance is high on your list of favorite genres, then you probably won’t want to miss this. If you crave an angel story with a bit more action and serious conflict, choose The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare or Angelfall by Susan Ee.

Torment (Fallen, #2)Torment by Lauren Kate
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This felt a bit repetitive and angsty, and trust me, I’m all about the angst. I guess I feel like this series is dragging things out too much. I kind of wish book one and two had been condensed and combined into one, and I think it would have made a much better start to the series, as a whole.

That being said, I still like enough things about the book to continue on in the series.

Passion (Fallen, #3)Passion by Lauren Kate

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I think book three definitely upped the stakes, and I enjoyed it the most so far.

Fallen in Love (Fallen, #3.5)Fallen in Love by Lauren Kate
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a decent novella, and if you are interested in the side characters, you will get to know them a lot better through this novella. It’s very Valentine’s Day specific and shifts between different new and old couples. I like 2 of the stories far better than the other 2. There is an attempt to draw the separate stories together, but it felt a bit jagged for me.

Rapture (Fallen, #4)Rapture by Lauren Kate
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There is nothing wrong with this final book. It should have been an exciting conclusion for me, but for some reason, I kind of felt like I wished it would just end already. I think maybe the series, as a whole, drug on for a bit longer than my interest and attention span did.

However, it’s well-written and true to what it is, so someone who absolutely loves romance-centric paranormal reads will probably fare better with this than I did. The plot and conclusion are interesting. I think I just grew a bit tired of the world and how drawn out everything was. I think I needed something more to continue to stay interested through four books, but I am not sure what, exactly.
