Why I Gave Torment 4 Stars Instead of 5 *Spoilers Inside*

Torment (Fallen, #2)Torment by Lauren Kate

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So you're probably wondering is if you loved Fallen so much what was wrong with Torment that it went down a notch? I'm gonna just do a list to make things easier for you lol.

What I loved about it:

The new characters! They were all so wonderful. The new dorm buddy, the love interest, the groupies lol, and my favorite would be Frankie and Steve. I love their outlook and grim reality on their love. The fact that Frankie loves him but knows when the time comes she'll have to kill him *sigh*.

The new setting! I loved the secret hideaway of the Nephilim. It just seems right but obviously not as safe as everyone thinks it is.

The Truce was a good idea or Luce would have been done for. Sometimes Angels and "Demons" just got to play nice.

Shadow Glimpsing/Hopping was neat and a nifty way to travel to Vegas lol

Ok folks what I didn't like about it:

Kinda didn't like the love triangle. I know its necessary because their needs to be some drama for the series to move along but isn't there enough drama without bringing a love triangle into it, just saying. And kissing him?! Stupid Stupid girl!

No secrets revealed or not many. Ok maybe its just me but I'm even more confused after reading this book then reading Fallen. I thought for sure something would be revealed about Daniel and Luce's past and yes while there were a few tidbits they were few and far between of what I really wanted. And what is it I want? I truly want to know why is it that they are cursed. Why do those blind albino people want her so much? What is the big secret cause that is what is holding my hand and leading me through this series.

The ending only pissed me off because its awesome and leads to the next book perfectly. Damn you!

  1. I'm reading Hush, Hush right now. If these books are anything like it, I'll love it. I can't wait to finish so I can get Crescendo and read it! I've heard it's really good.

    Thanks for the recommendations! :)
