    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?
    “Sexy and fascinating and scary . . . I loved loved loved it!”
    —P. C. Cast, New York Times bestselling author on Fallen

Excerpts-

  • Chapter One ONE

    EIGHTEEN DAYS

    Luce planned on keeping her eyes closed all six hours of the cross-country flight from Georgia out to California, right up until the moment when the wheels of the plane touched down in San Francisco. Half asleep, she found it so much easier to pretend she was already reunited with Daniel.

    It felt like a lifetime since she'd seen him, though it had really only been a few days. Ever since they'd said goodbye at Sword & Cross on Friday morning, Luce's whole body had felt groggy. The absence of his voice, his warmth, the touch of his wings: it had sunk into her bones, like a strange illness.

    An arm brushed against hers, and Luce opened her eyes. She was face to face with a wide-eyed, brown-haired guy a few years older than her.

    "Sorry," they both said at the same time, each retreating a few inches on either side of the plane's armrest.

    Out the window, the view was startling. The plane was making its descent into San Francisco, and Luce had never seen anything like it before. As they traced the south side of the bay, a winding blue tributary seemed to cut through the earth on its way to the sea. The stream divided a vibrant green field on one side from a swirl of something bright red and white on the other. She pressed her forehead to the double plastic pane and tried to get a better view.

    "What is that?" she wondered aloud.

    "Salt," the guy answered, pointing. He leaned in closer. "They mine it out of the Pacific."

    The answer was so simple, so . . . human. Almost a surprise after the time she'd spent with Daniel and the other—she was still unpracticed at using the terms literally—angels and demons. She looked out across the midnight-blue water, which seemed to stretch forever west. Sun-over-water had always meant morning to Atlantic coast-raised Luce. But out here, it was almost night.

    "You're not from around here, are you?" her seatmate asked.

    Luce shook her head but held her tongue. She kept staring out the window. Before she'd left Georgia this morning, Mr. Cole had coached her about keeping a low profile. The other teachers had been told that Luce's parents had requested a transfer. It was a lie. As far as Luce's parents, Callie, and anyone else knew, she was still enrolled at Sword & Cross.

    A few weeks before, this would have infuriated her. But the things that had happened in those final days at Sword & Cross had left Luce a person who took the world more seriously. She had glimpsed a snapshot of another life—one of so many she'd shared with Daniel before. She'd discovered a love more important to her than anything she'd ever thought possible. And then she'd seen all of that threatened by a crazy, dagger-wielding old woman whom she'd thought she could trust.

    There were more out there like Miss Sophia, that Luce knew. But no one had told her how to recognize them. Miss Sophia had seemed normal, up until the end. Could the others look as innocent as . . . this brown-haired guy sitting next to her? Luce swallowed, folded her hands on her lap, and tried to think about Daniel.

    Daniel was taking her someplace safe.

    Luce pictured him waiting for her in one of those gray plastic airport chairs, elbows on knees, his blond head tucked between his shoulders. Rocking back and forth in his black Converse sneakers. Standing up every few minutes to pace around the baggage carousel.

    There was a jolt as the plane touched down. Suddenly she was nervous. Would he be as happy to see her as she was to see him?

    She focused on the brown and beige pattern on the cloth seat in front of her. Her neck felt stiff from the long flight and...

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    September 6, 2010
    In Kate's sequel to Fallen, fallen angel Daniel has negotiated an 18-day truce with demonic Cam, during which time they will keep his one true love, 17-year-old Luce, safe from the Outcasts, "spineless, waffling angels, shunned by both Heaven and Hell," who are after her. Daniel sends Luce to Shoreline, a Northern California prep school for angel-descended Nephilim. The change is stressful for her because she is there alone and because she is seen as a "legendary freak" by some students for her famous doomed relationship with Daniel, which has unfolded tragically over several lifetimes. Uncovering details from her past lives and meeting charmingly normal Miles, Luce begins to have doubts about Daniel. Equal parts romance and thriller, this sequel can be both schmaltzy ("There was no darkness, no more cold, just the lovely sensation of being bathed in his violet glow. Even the rush of the ocean was canceled out by a soft hum, the energy Daniel carried in his body") and frequently suspenseful. The open-ended finale paves the way for a third book. Ages 12–up.

    After the disaster that was her short-lived career at Sword and Cross School, Lucinda's physically flawless, fallen-angel boyfriend Daniel has transported her to Shoreline, on the California coast, while he hunts for the Outcasts, who want to kill Luce. Shoreline hosts both regular kids, like Luce, and Nephilim, angel-human hybrids. Luce hones some of her own supernatural skills and learns to travel into her previous lives with the help of her Nephilim friends, Shelby and Miles. As they work together, Luce begins to fall for Miles. Now she wonders if she's truly destined to be with Daniel forever. Luce's personality finally begins to bud in this book, but she's still bland, existing primarily for Daniel. Daniel, who Lucinda learns is the one who will tip the scales of power in the fallen-angel war, is just as oblique and drippy as he was in Fallen (2009). Miles, however, comes through in a moment of crisis, setting up an intriguing love triangle that will continue into the third in the series with, perhaps, a character strong enough to carry it. (Paranormal romance. YA)

    Gr 9 Up-This sequel to Fallen (Delacorte, 2009) continues they complex tale as Luce tries to uncover the truth and break the cycle of falling in love, dying young, and being reincarnated. Daniel, her lover through the ages and a fallen angel, institutes a truce with Demons to protect her from the Outcasts, who would do her harm. For her safety, Daniel hides her at a boarding school for the Nephilim, children of human and fallen angels, and cautions her to remain on campus and learn all she can. Unfortunately a little knowledge can be dangerous and Luce's naive attempts to manipulate her powers constantly put her and others in danger. Some of the rescues employ a deus ex machina as is the case when Arriane inexplicably arrives in Vegas and saves the day. At times the story plods along, with a full chapter devoted to a fencing lesson. Daniel regularly returns to check on Luce and there's lots of swooning, passionate kissing, and playing at being in love, though it often ends with bickering. Interest is piqued with the hint of a love triangle, and the suspense is ratcheted up in the heart-pounding final battle scene. In the end, readers won't be much closer to unraveling Luce's mystery and will need to stay tuned for the next installment. It's unlikely this title will garner new fans for the series, but those already hooked on the epic romance won't want to miss it.-Patricia N. McClune, Conestoga Valley High School, Lancaster, PA
