Fallen by Lauren Kate
Seventeen-Year-Old Luce is a new student at Sword & Cross, an unwelcoming boarding/reform school in Savannah, Georgia. Luce’s boyfriend died under suspicious circumstances, and now she carries the guilt over his death with her as she navigates the unfriendly halls at Sword & Cross, where every student seems to have an unpleasant—even evil—history.
It’s only when she sees Daniel, a gorgeous fellow student, that Luce feels there’s a reason to be here—though she doesn’t know what it is. And Daniel’s frosty cold demeanor toward her? It’s really a protective device that he’s used again . . . and again. For Daniel is a fallen angel, doomed to fall in love with the same girl every 17 years . . . and watch her die. And Luce is a fellow immortal, cursed to be reincarnated again and again as a mortal girl who has no idea of who she really is.
Release Date: December 8, 2009
WOW! This sounds like the type of book that will have me hooked from the beginning. With a heroine who has a past she knows nothing about – and obviously relives every 17 years, and a hero who’s a fallen angel. Need I say more? Just from reading the synopsis, I already have a bunch of questions forming in my head, and I can’t wait to find out what happens.
Also found an article at Feybound.com about this book. According to the article, Fallen is going to be a new YA series with the first four titles already bought by Random House.
