Hell on earth. That's what it's like for Luce to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel. It took them an eternity to find one another, but now he has told her he must go away. Just long enough to hunt down the Outcasts - immortals who want to kill Luce. Daniel hides Luce at Shoreline, a school on the rocky California coast with unusually gifted students -Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans.
At Shoreline, Luce learns what the Shadows are, and how she can use them as windows to her previous lives. Yet the more Luce learns, the more she suspects that Daniel hasn't told her everything. He's hiding something - something dangerous. What if Daniel's version of the past isn't actually true? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else? The second novel in the addictive FALLEN series . . . where love never dies.
TORMENT was a book of growth. Luce again moves to another school to be protected from the Outcasts. She meets a lot of new friends like Shelby and Miles. I think that this sequel was very slow building and answered a lot of questions. I liked it much better than Fallen. Luce grew up so much and lost her naivety. She finally sees through the fog and notices that there is a lot that Daniel isn't telling her and she starts to ask questions. Her and Daniel's relationship goes through some bumps because they are constantly fighting and it forces her to question their love. Also while she and Daniel are fighting, dimpled Miles begins to worm his way into Luce's heart. Torment was way better than Fallen because it was slower and it fit the history and info into the book without rushing it. The ending is great and a wonderful opening to the third book. I can't wait!
