Rapture by Lauren Kate


And time is running out for Luce and Daniel.

In order to stop Lucifer from erasing the past, they must find the place where the Fall began. Only Luce can break the curse, and it is her choice alone that will decide all their fates.

But as Dark Forces gather, great sacrifices will be made in this final epic struggle . . .

In the fight for Luce, and for love, who will win?

The thrilling conclusion to the international bestsellers FALLEN, TORMENT and PASSION.

The fourth and final book in the FALLEN series hits stores on 12 June 2012.

My thoughts: OMG, I just can’t believe it’s the end. In this one, the group of angels have nine days to stop Lucifer from erasing their history from the face of the earth, and that includes Luce’s and Daniel’s love.
                To stop Lucifer, they have to find the place where the angels fell from Heaven, but how will they find it if none of the angels remember where it was? They have to be fast. Through these nine days, there were “timequakes”, when the world seemed to tremble and split, and then get together and become quiet. Those were the parts that really confused me, because in those “timequakes” the past and the present get mixed up and you get a quite big interrogation point inside your head!
In this adventure, Daniel and Luce need to find three relics that are supposed to indicate the place of the Fall, but it won’t be easy – nothing is easy for those two – and they have to be strong one more time for their love.
                When I read the synopsis, I saw that Luce might be arranged to be with another person instead of Daniel. Well, I won’t tell who it is, but thing is that he – the men – was in love with her and still have feelings for her. She needs to find out who she really is – she isn’t just a regular girl, otherwise she wouldn’t see the Announcers and wouldn’t reincarnate over and over again – in order to save not only the one she loves, but all of her friends.
                One last decision has to be made, and Luce might be the one to tip the scale between Heaven and Hell. But who or which side will she choose? Her choice may have a high price. Is she willing to sacrifice it in order to be together with Daniel?
                This reading was a real joy to me, not only because of its story – because I absolutely love angels and romance – but of its turnings. You get to see a whole different view of the fallen angels that turned to Lucifer’s side, of the Outcasts, and even of the Throne – Heaven – itself. The ending was the cutest thing ever, and if I were Lauren Kate, I would have picked this very ending.
                There were a few things that really interested me: Cam’s love, Arriane’s love. The author, during the novels, never wrote about it, but I believe that it might have something in that extra book, Fallen in Love, that may answer these questions.
                Finally, I have to wrap this up with the book’s cover. Just like the others covers, this one has its dark beauty, and I absolutely loved it – from a girl that adores Tim Burton’s work and loves skeletons, it is quite predictable. I hope you all get the chance to read this book. I always thought that Luce was a girl that took Daniel for granted – a little – but this last one showed me that she can have some guts to fight for him. And that no matter what, they will always find each other – (SPOILER!) even if they forget about their history together.
