Book Review – Passion

Passion (Fallen, #3)Passion by Lauren Kate
My rating: 2 out of 5 stars (2 / 5)

Why did I keep reading this series???? Just why, why??

I kept waiting for the payoff. I kept waiting for the revelatory moment in the book that would explain to me why this series was so popular. I kept reading in hope that it would make more sense, that the plot holes would close up and everything would fall into line. I kept reading because I am an optimistic reader and despite things like Twilight and 50 Shades, I hope that something popular will also have merit.

I just feel so cheated.

To be fair, I guess this book was more interesting and made a bit more sense than the first two. In this installation, we steer through Luce’s previous lives, watching her die over and over again because she loves Daniel. Just when you think everything is going to make sense and be explained, it … I don’t even know what happened. It doesn’t make sense to me. It’s illogical. Whatever.

I think this whole series is because someone had a fantasy about being a perpetual teenager who is deeply and desperately and chastely loved by an angel. It’s sort of angel fan-fic. If you like that sort of thing, maybe this is for you! It’s not for me. I think I’m done.
