Luce would die for Daniel.
And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn’t need to be that way. . .
Luce is certain that something—or someone—in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime . . . going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel . . . and finally unlock the key to making their love last.
Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history.
Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames . . . forever.
Sweeping across centuries, PASSION is the third novel in the unforgettably epic FALLEN series. (Goodreads)
In this book, Luce goes searching in her past lives to find a way to help her present life, to find a way that she and Daniel can be together forever. In each past life that she visits, she observes the romances between herself and Daniel, and she sees just how deeply his love for her goes. As Daniel and the other fallen angel’s chase her through time, it’s up to Luce to find a way for their love to last.
I have to say, Luce drove me a little crazy in this book. How much proof did she need that Daniel loved her? The further back in history Luce went, the more she could see how strong Daniel’s love for her was. She never should have doubted him that. (However, we wouldn’t have had this book if that was the case.) Daniel, in all his lives, was so wonderfully charming and romantic. I could definitely feel his frustration as he chased Luce through time.
I really enjoyed the back-history in this story. Not only getting to see Luce and Daniel’s previous lives, but we also get a little history on some of the other fallen angel’s as well; Roland, Cam, Gabbe, etc. It was really great to see parts of their history as well.
Overall, I really enjoyed all of the characters and the history that was included in this novel. I love this series, and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book; Rapture!
