For more information visit http://laurenkatebooks.net/The synopsisLucinda is sure that she and Daniel are meant to be together forever. Now they are forced apart in a desperate bid to save Luce from the Outcasts–immortals who want her dead. Daniel brings Luce to the Shoreline School. A school where a special group is getting educated. The Nephilim, children of angels and humans. She learns to handle the shadows that have been chasing her all her live, she learns they hold messages from the past that can be seen and shadows can be used as transporters to the past. As she discovers more about her past lives, Luce starts to suspect that Daniel is hiding something. What if he has lied to her about their shared past? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else?The reviewIn this book, same as in Fallen, a lot of questions stay unanswered. Every time you think you will learn something new, the story moves to another subject. Even her classmates and people you think are her friends don’t help her with information. The way this is handled is starting to get very annoying. Specially the excuses to avoid giving answers gives me the feeling it is done as an excuse to write another book.The story was better written than Fallen. In Fallen the author sometimes forgot to explain details that would make the story complete. Now all I want are some answers, so I am going to read the penultimate book Passion but I do not think I will add this author to my favorite shelf.
