Review: Torment by Lauren Kate

Torment (Fallen #2) by Lauren Kate
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Goodreads Summary: 
How many lives do you need to live before you find someone worth dying for?

In the aftermath of what happened at Sword & Cross, Luce has been hidden away by her cursed angelic boyfriend, Daniel, in a new school filled with Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans. Daniel promises she will be safe here, protected from those who would kill her. At the school Luce discovers what the Shadows that have followed her all her life mean – and how to manipulate them to see into her other lives. Yet the more Luce learns about herself, the more she realizes that the past is her only key to unlocking her future . . . and that Daniel hasn't told her everything. What if his version of the past isn't actually the way things happened . . . what if Luce was really meant to be with someone else?

The second novel in the addictive FALLEN series...where love never dies.
Rating: 3 Stars
Review: 
Torment definitely wasn't as good as Fallen. It was borderline close to terrible. For some reason, it seemed as if Luce's personality took a major change; venting against Daniel was just the beginning of it. Things that she was fine with in Fallen, she was suddenly not in Torment. Her baseline personality was still there, but he personality definitely took a turn, like Cam's is rumoured to be in Unforgiven.

Daniel wasn't as present in Torment, partially due to him being away 'protecting' Luce. I love Daniel, he's always wanting to fight for what he believes in (Luce). It was almost like Lauren Kate started a love triangle in Torment, which I am very, VERY against, as fragile as Daniel and Luce's relationship is, they are destiny.

The Fallen series reminds me of nothing but 'the immortals' series by Alyson Noel. I don't know why, but pretty much everything in Fallen has this effect on me. I really hope the rest of the series makes up for Torment.
