Some Angels are Destined to Fall
There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.
Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . even if it kills her.
I started this book with high hopes, but really struggled to finish it. There was so much teen angst and so little storyline. By the end of the book I hated Daniel almost as bad as I despised Luce. There were a few unexpected twists that made me wonder why I didn't enjoy it more but for the most part I felt as though I was dragged kicking and screaming to finish this book. I seriously doubt I'll give the second book in this series a chance because I really just don't care about the characters. The only redeeming feature of this book was the cover, which I loved.
