Torment (Fallen, Book 2)

Torment (Fallen, Book 2) - Lauren Kate First, can I just say... I LOVE the covers of this series! Seriously... gorgeous. I try very hard not to judge a book by it's cover, but I have to admit that the covers of Fallen and Torment were what attracted me to the books at first.

As I've said before, I tend to be a little leery of YA titles. It's a 50/50 chance on whether I will like the book, even if the synopsis sounds interesting. I'm not sure why, but a lot of YA titles just drive me crazy. Not so with this series. This series, I loved! Lauren Kate tells a tale that is timeless. The struggles of love, acceptance, and life choices are present throughout one's entire life, which makes this series great for anyone.

Very rarely, I come across a book that leaves me thinking about it after I put it down. Torment is one of those books. The characters are fabulously created, and the story kept me engaged throughout the entire experience. It seemed that every time I had a few moments to spare, I would find myself wondering about what was going to happen next. Torment will definitely suck you in and keep your attention.

Any book that can raise emotions in the reader is special. At different times in the book, I found myself wanting to reach out and smack Luce, hug Daniel, and warn Miles. There were even occurrences where I would literally be smiling while reading and hubby would give me that "what the heck's going on" look from across the room. lol

Fallen and Torment are both great books that will keep you turning pages and wondering what will happen next. They will suck you into Luce's world, where you can see what's going on and feel the emotions being raised.
