"Every single lifetime, I'll choose you. Just as you have chosen me. Forever."

Luce would die for Daniel. And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel broken and alone.But perhaps it doesn't need to be that way....

Luce is certain that something -or someone- in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime...going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel...and finally unlock the key to making their love last.

Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are frantic as Daniel. He chases her throughout their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history.

Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames...forever.

Passion was sort of what I expected the sequel to be, but also very unexpected.

Luce and Daniel are amazing, simple as that. They coined the term "I love you." I love them! I love Daniel! I love Luce! I love them!

This book was great, not amazing awesome fantabulous, but great. It's probably just because no matter how good this series gets, it will only be great for me. The books just never got me hooked. I never stayed up too late imagining what it would be like to be in so-and-so's position, I never jumped up and down as the days to the release of Passion grew closer, I never grew completely and totally obsessed; reading the books over and over again. I don't know what it is. The story line is great, the characters are great, and Lauren Kate doesn't have really bad grammar or anything like that.

So, I don't really know where I'm going with this review; I'll end it shortly. Crazy things happen, and Luce's travelling through time made me jealous. Hahaha. I hope I'm not the only one who was more mystified by the culture and history Luce was going through than certain predicaments. The ending was just- I don't even know how to explain it! All I can say is that it's a little cruel to end the story right there! When I saw the page in the back that says, "Rapture- Spring 2012," or whatever, I actually went, "Nooooooo!!!!" But, of course I whispered it because my parents were sleeping at the time.

Great book. Great sequel. Looking forward (angrily) to Spring 2012. Also: 1) I can't tell if the girl on the front is real or what. Can you tell? 2) Is it wrong that I find Cam slightly...amazing?

Four Stars


  1. I love Cam. More then I love Daniel I think. ^_^ So no it's not crazy you find him amazing. I think that Cam only chose the side he did because of anger and heartache. I think in the end he may switch back. Roland better switch back. Arianne needs him. ^_^ Molly... I'm not so concerned with.

  2. Touya, you just read my mind. I love Roland and Arianne! I'm glad that you feel the same way about Cam as I do because I was afraid that I was going all anti-Fallen or something by doing so :P Honestly, I'm a sucker for hot villians. Thanks for commenting!
