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. (Goodreads)
In Rapture, we get to learn who Lucinda really is. Not just about some of her past lives as we did in the previous book. We get to learn who she truly is. That caught me by surprise, because she wasn’t really what I expected at all. I really enjoyed getting even more back-story for Luce and Danielle. Theirs is a relationship that I have always loved, and I’m really going to miss reading about these characters.
I have always really enjoyed the secondary characters in this book. Cam, Roland, Gabbe, Adrianne, and even Molly; all of these characters make the series extra special for me. I love them each for very different reasons. I would love it if Mrs. Kate wanted to make a spin-off series about any of these characters, especially the mysterious Cam.
I really enjoyed the storyline and the pacing for the book. It all flowed together wonderfully for a great read. The ending left me very satisfied, with all my questions answered, and more. To be honest, I was really worried going into this book, of how it would end. But I couldn’t have asked for a better conclusion. It was well worth the wait.
I also feel that I should add that the book covers for this series have been my favorite of all time. They are all seriously gorgeous, and I love seeing them displayed on my bookshelf.
Overall: I have really enjoyed reading this series over the past few years. As much as I hate to see it end, I have thoroughly enjoyed the journey I took with Luce, Daniel and the crew.
