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.
My opinion : I I have to admit that I'm a little disappointed. I was expecting something a little more thrilling, because according to me the series has a huge potential. Let's say it's not a hate, but it's not a love either. I liked this new setting : the school of Shoreline and all the new characters who came with it (Shelby, Miles ..). However I'd have liked more scenes with Cam, Daniel ... Because there were even times when I wished Luce'd make up with Miles (Yeah I think I was getting a little tired of Luce and Daniel together )! I have the same reproach that I had for the first book (Fallen) : it's too slow to start !! I mean, there were some passages that I loved but unfortunately there were also ones that made me stop reading and put the book on my bedside table ! Nevertheless, I have to add that I loved the end with the Thanksgiving reunion when all the characters gathered and the end is awesome (well according to me). Lauren Kate definitely knows how to create a cliffhanger !!
Quotes : I haven't picked quotes like I did for my other reviews. But there's one that I found very funny :
"If you two were going to be that obvious about it, why didn't you guys come down in your Team Daniel and Team Miles T-shirts ?"
My advice : I'm kind of mixed about this series : I loved both of the endings, but I disliked the fact that the story was very slow. I think it has a huge potential so you should read it anyway ;)
