Review: Torment by Lauren Kate

Book: Torment by Lauren Kate
Genre: YA Paranormal
Rating: *** (using a star rating now, click here for specific meanings)
For: Fun
From: part of my Borders-going-out-of-business stash

A long time ago I read Fallen, and thought it was pretty good, pretty intense and pretty different. This book, it's sequel, while I liked it okay, it was just not as good for me.

So in this book we have Luce being shipped off to a different school, by Daniel, her fallen angel boyfriend... to be protected.... from what I never quite understood. There, she makes some new friends, learns some new angel mythology things and fights with Daniel every time he comes to see her. Much of this story, actually, I just didn't get.

But did that stop me from reading it? No, it was a quick easy read and one that didn't drag or make me lose interest... so that's something. And Luce is okay, except that she picks a fight with Daniel over really stupid things... and Daniel, he's just... boring. But I really liked the new friends, especially Miles! So that's something too!

I don't know... maybe these angel books just aren't my thing?

Bottom line: It was okay... exciting in parts and confusing in others.

  1. I liked the idea of the first book, but then didn't enjoy it enough to even read the second... I was worried it wouldn't be good and I think I was right judging by the reviews I have seen.

  2. I just don't think I regret my decision to give up on this series.
