{Review} Torment by Lauren Kate

Hell on earth.
That's what it's like for Luce to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel.
It took them an eternity to find one another, but now he has told her he must go away. Just long enough to hunt down the Outcasts - immortals who want to kill Luce. Daniel hides Luce at Shoreline, a school on the rocky California coast with unusually gifted students: Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans.
At Shoreline, Luce learns what the Shadows are, and how she can use them as windows to her previous lives. Yet the more Luce learns, the more she suspects that Daniel hasn't told her everything. He's hiding something - something dangerous.
What if Daniel's version of the past isn't actually true? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else?
The second novel in the addictive FALLEN series...where love never dies. {Goodreads}
This is the Australian book trailer...but I liked it so here ya go! :D

  So, I wasn't completely sold on the first book Fallen. My cousin told me that I had to read the series because it was soooo amazing...especially because of Torment. We both have similar book tastes so I thought what the heck! I had been wanting to read the series for awhile anyways! :) So I bought book one and...had a rough time. These books are told from third person POV. I don't like third person.....It just has never really stuck with me. But thankfully, I started to get used to it and fell into the books rhythm.

  By the end of the book....I wasn't hooked but I enjoyed it! It was different and I really liked the reform school setting! Lauren had her own way with keeping me interested and starting to like the third person narration. I really liked it...I just didn't see what the hype was all about. Then, I read Torment.

  This book was really good! It was definitely a step up from Fallen. And the third person narration was no longer a problem! I loved all the new characters! They were all awesome in some way and I came to like them all. And Cam!! I love him! He is not your average bad guy. And apparently that was bugging some people but I don't see why. I mean...that's why I liked the book even more. Seeing that Cam isn't all that bad made the whole demon vs. angel bit a whole lot more believable. How each one is only a matter of opinion and hell! If the demons are as sexy as Cam...I am all game ;D

 Now, I have to say, I am #TeamMiles. I think Daniel is over exaggerated, the boy is too "love me for our past yet I will not tell you our past. Just have faith in a magical love" and ya, I'm gonna get a bunch of crap for that but...o well. Miles is real. Down to earth, easy to talk to, sweet, and willing to do anything for Luce despite knowing her past. He accepts her for her and isn't fake. I love him!

  Anyways...Torment was a great read! It is a beautiful sequel to Fallen. If you love the whole Nephilium and Angel vs. Demons with a slight gothic'll love this series. It was definitely worth the buy and I can't wait till I can buy the last two books Passion and Rapture. With an ending like Torment's have no choice to keep reading! I am really looking forward to getting some past info! :D

4 wonderful stars! :)

Thanks for stopping by! :)


  1. Nice review! <3 I had a friend who told me to stay away from Fallen, haha! but I'm glad to hear that it improves (much like a certain Vampire Academy series...) Sounds good that there's awesome characters (a Vivi-must) On to check this series out again!

    1. Ya, its not my favorite series I have ever read but...its definitely worth the shot! Idk about buying them all...I did but only cus..idk I think I would have been safer with borrowing them from the library. Idk I like them on my shelf though too hahaha It's kind of a hit or miss books :)

      Thanks for stopping by! :)

  2. I totally agree with you– this was a much better follow-up to Fallen! Passion is interesting. I liked the idea, but I got a little confused on the way... oh well, I think you'll enjoy it :) Great review!!

    P.S. I TOTALLY want to follow you on GFC, but the widget thing isn't working :S so for now I'm following on Twitter + Goodreads :)

    1. Ya it was! But...I think I just gave up on it. Not entirely, I just won't be buying the last two. Probably borrow them from the library or something. I decided even though I liked them....I don't like them enough to buy the rest. I can buy other books you know?

      AWWWEEE!!! :,( I am really going to have to fix that hah? Thanks for the interest though! I'll see about fixin it! :)

  3. Dang. Who makes these awesome trailers? It's like every YA book has book trailers nowadays. Hmm...

    I'm not really into Demons, Angels, and Gothics. But I'm all for sweet, down to earth, real characters like Miles. Forget team Daniel, go TEAM MILES!!! Got it.
