Winter 2009 Kids' List
“Angels, both good and bad, are among us! Fallen is romantic, dark, thrilling and at the same time puts a new twist on immortality. So take wing with exciting romance and adventure and take a break from immortals who want your blood!”
— Becky Anderson, Anderson's Bookshop, Naperville, IL
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.
Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, Fallen is a page turning thriller and the ultimate love story.
