Book Review: Rapture By Lauren Kate

Name: Rapture
Author: Lauren Kate
Publisher: Random House
Release Date: 21st June 2012


The sky is dark with wings . . . .
Like sand in an hourglass, time is running out for Luce and Daniel. To stop Lucifer from erasing the past they must find the place where the angels fell to earth. Dark forces are after them, and Daniel doesn’t know if he can do this—live only to lose Luce again and again.
Yet together they will face an epic battle that will end with lifeless bodies . . . and angel dust. Great sacrifices are made. Hearts are destroyed. And suddenly Luce knows what must happen.
For she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel. The curse they’ve borne has always and only been about her—and the love she cast aside.
The choice she makes now will be the only one that truly matters.
In the fight for Luce, who will win?

The astonishing conclusion to the FALLEN series. Heaven can’t wait any longer.


For those of you who have regularly read my blog posts, I'm sure you can see who my fave authors are.
Lauren Kate is definitely one of my favourites not only is she an awesome person she is also the brains behind the 'Fallen' series which I have loved.
I am so sad that it's over but so grateful to have had the pleasure of losing myself in the beautiful love story of Daniel and Luce.
'Rapture' the final instalment in the series is by far the most emotional read ever.
I was so mesmerised by this novel that I found myself walking along the street desperate to know more.

Putting 'Rapture' down was not an option.

I was swept away by the beauty of this series and 'Rapture' not only tied the beautiful story together, Lauren also threw in a few unexpected, naughty yet oh so clever twists.
I found myself crying on the bus and screaming NO whilst reading during my lunch break.
It was so hard for me to say goodbye to this amazing series but Lauren Kate has definitely surpassed herself with 'Rapture' I have even more adoration for her, this novel is well-written, it has you as a reader on the edge of your seat.
'Rapture' goes straight into the heart of the action and it just gets even more intense.
I just never expected Luce's and Daniel's story to be this way, there were a few twists that had me gasping for breath. I'm sat there thinking OMG.
Just when you're thinking Daniel and Luce are home and dry to get on with their lives bam another huge twist that changes everything comes into play.
I don't want to ruin the story for you but there were many sad moments of loss and adoration for certain characters.
'Rapture' was not only heartbreaking it was earth shattering.
This book has set the bar for final novels, I think out of the series 'Rapture' was the most intense.
I will miss Daniel and Luce's whirlwind love story, to be honest I will miss the Fallen series completely, but I am excited to see what Lauren Kate produces next as I know it will rock my world.

Rapture was an amazing novel and i loved finding out all that we did, but there were so many things that had me in tears. The loss of two amazing angels when they were so close to the end was awful but the ending was heart breaking. When Luce and Daniel had finally gone through everything they had and She had gone through all that,his pain was finally lifted and she finally knew everything there was to know. Unfortunately the major twist at the end just erased that it was like they wont remember any of it so they wont know how amazing it was and how much they went through. I cant help but imagining that they discover their past together and get to live together forever with all the other angels, demons and of course Shelby and Miles. This book broke my heart and its going to take a while to recover.
