I am in awe of this series… If there is any epic love story, then it’s the one from Luce and Daniel. Fallen was one of the first books I read after my Twilight Obsession and I love this series ever since. Funny enough, I fell in love with Daniel the minute he flipped Luce off when they first met in Fallen. This series broke me heart so many times, I cried so many times and I swooned so many times. Finally, with Rapture we get closure. We had a wonderful time together…

Last books are always hard. There are so many loose questions that now finally need to come to an end so that the reader gets closure, so that we can finish this series and feel satisfied. Lauren Kate gave us all this – she went beyond from what I first expected when I picked Fallen up a few years ago. The mythology behind Daniel’s and Luce’s love story was so incredible and epically heartbreaking. During every book throughout the series we learned more and more, new layers and mysteries were revelaed and each left us breathless with the enormity of this epic love story.
Rapture indeed gave us so many answers and went even beyond about what I imaged. We finally get to the botton, to the very beginning of Daniel and Luce’s tale. How they fell in love and the background of their love and also of their curse. Discovering and getting all those answers was thrilling and exciting. I was speechless and astonished by the sheer enormity of this story. Never, did I imagine what was finally revealed. The whole series slowly builds to this final showdown and.. it was well worth the ride and the tears!
This story is all about love. Sure, there is the Angel and the Fall of the Angels mythology but in the end it’s a love story. Readers whit a deep affection for epic love stories need to read these books. A Love that spans million of years and countless lifetimes. Lovers that find each other anywhere and anytime is truly the most heartbreaking and heartmelting story to tell. In Rapture this love finally is judged and we are on edge the whole time, dreading the final outcome….
In Rapture brings Lauren Kate the epic tale of love to a breathtaking ending. Some twists I suspected, some totally took me by surpris. However, Ratpture was a fitting ending to an beautifully woven love story that is beyond everything I read before … I’m glad and sad its over! This was an emotional roller coaster and my heart needed Luce and Daniel story to come to and end, I was ready…
The Audiobooks are absolutely phenomenal! Justine Eyre is my favorite narrator – I love her voice, accents and intonations. If you love audiobooks this definitely is a series to add to your audio-list.
Also, I need to point out here and now that I desperately need a Cam spin-off. He was one of my favorite characters in this series and I need more of him! Please Mrs Kate : Give us Cam!
The super cute Gina from The Bucket List hosted a Fallen Book Discussion, maybe you want to check it out. Gina is super cute, I meet her at BEA last week and I’m super happy she said hello!!
So tell me… if you already started with this series, what do you expect from the ending, what do you expect from Rapture?
If you haven’t started the series, will you now?
