Review: Torment by: Lauren Kate

Torment (Fallen, #2)Torment by Lauren Kate

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The drama continues.. I wish I could fairly rate this more like 3.5 stars though.. Something along the way to Luce's character got whiny, got a little less likeable. I enjoyed the storyline, it flowed from Fallen and is continuing into Passion ... and yes, I think I am hooked because I have Passion out and ready to start reading right away, but I will force myself to stop if this character gets any worse, which is my fear.

Luce is placed secretly away from Sword & Cross across the states into a new boarding school that "caters" to the special programs needed for the Nephilium. The reader is introduced again to some new amazing secondary characters, and those that return from the first in the series.

Luce is battling the idea of lifetimes and the damages left in their wake, she is battling listening for the best of protecting her - for there is too many out there that want her, too many stories that claim that she is the key to unlocking their hell. A truce has been placed between Cam and Daniel with rules as they hunt and protect her, only to have it come to a head at Thanksgiving.

I hope Luce's character develops better, not as selfish as she comes across on paper - I look forward to Passion and seeing.
