This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
How many lives do you need to live before you find someone worth dying for?
In the aftermath of what happened at Sword & Cross, Luce has been hidden away by her cursed angelic boyfriend, Daniel, in a new school filled with Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans. Daniel promises she will be safe here, protected from those who would kill her. At the school Luce discovers what the Shadows that have followed her all her life mean – and how to manipulate them to see into her other lives. Yet the more Luce learns about herself, the more she realizes that the past is her only key to unlocking her future . . . and that Daniel hasn’t told her everything. What if his version of the past isn’t actually the way things happened . . . what if Luce was really meant to be with someone else?
I’m not sure which one I dislike the most the first one or this. The only thing that seemed to work for this book was when we learned more about Daniel and Luce’s past.
I really don’t like Luce and now when she’s left all alone she’s even more annoying than before. I didn’t think it possible but here we are! In a way I’m happy that Cam and Daniel isn’t such a big part of the story because I really don’t like them either but at least Luce is tolerable when her Daniel isn’t around. In the end of the book she seem to become more independent and that’s when she steps into character but it’s such a long time to wait for that change in my opinion.
It still has the same feel – still as YA like but something is just missing for me.
If you want an epic love story this isn’t where you get it! If you like a really good and interesting plot this isn’t where you get it. I’m not sure what you get really, except for some long nights where you fall asleep during a chapter. It’s funny how I like the supporting roles a lot better than the main ones. What’s up with that?
I must say I’m a huge fan of the covers on these books. They are so pretty and gothic – too bad the feel of the covers aren’t represented in the book!
