I don't read 1 star books. I pride myself on being able to give it up if it's just not happening for me. I have generously gifted this review with two stars when in reality it was probably more of a 1.5 star read. I don't know what it was that propelled me through this snoozer? Maybe it was the promising tag-lines on the cover: "sexy" "ultimate romance" "New York Times best seller?" I started to realize around page 250 that I was not really reading but mostly skimming for good stuff. I was on page 250 for goodness sake, the good stuff had to show up eventually, right...RIGHT?! Spoiler Alert, it did not show up...ever :( And now I am left feeling cheated out of good book-reading time. Problems I had with this book: 1. It was boring. There was no real action until the last 100 pages. 2. There was no exposition. It's the 1st book in a series. I at least expect some sort of explanation for the set-up of this fantasy world. Like what's the deal with angels, how do fallen angels work, why does Luce see shadows, WHAT THE HECK ARE THE SHADOWS? I like the explainy parts of books. It helps me feel more involved and invested in the story world. 3. Many tings are left unexplained. Not just limited to the lack of world building, major plot points are left unexplained (I won't spoil them for you in the event that you actually DO want to read this book, I mean each book has it's audience, needless to say, for this book that is not me). Perhaps (and I sincerely hope)they will be discussed in more detail in future books, but I guess I will never know since I don't expect to continue on in this series. 4. The romance, which was supposed to be awesome and ultimate, felt dull and boring. Daniel's a jerk, which I totally get and am not faulting him for. I actually often enjoy the "hot, elusive jerk turns sexy romantic partner" story line in many books, but this one seemed forced. We were supposed to assume that Luce & Daniel new each other in previous timelines but were not given enough background pieces to really understand their bond. I don't know. I am sure there are kids out there who will love this. I just didn't. To sum up, you might like this book if you enjoy: sappy, unrealistic romance, paranormal/fantasy themes, teenage drama.

This book kept me nervous and thrilled all the way through. The characters were a little black and white for me, and some of the choices they made seemed a little weird, but the tone and pacing were spot on, and the tension, exciting.

I'm on the 3rd book now and so far I love them! This story is a great one to get sucked into.

I really wanted to like this book because I had heard such good reviews about it. But unfortunately, this one's not for me. I don't hate it but I don't like it either; which IMO is worse than hating the book because the characters didn't make a strong enough impact for me to care either way. I liked the whole mysterious behavior of the characters more than the great revelation at the end of the book. But the story could've been a little tighter. Probably won't read the remaining books of the quartet.

this book is enjoyable. in the beginning, there is a lot of confusions on what is going on. later, they reveal it which is great because other books don't even tell you.

Luce meets Daniel when she is transferred to a Boarding school and she falls for him the first time she sees him. But she feels like it isn't the first time she has seen him before and she cant figure out why he is acting so strange and why she likes him in the first place.

After a devastating fire, Luce is pulled out of her high-achieving prep school and deposited within the rusted gates of Sword and Cross reform school in Georgia. Really you would think her parents would have checked the place out first. I found it hard to believe any parent would allow their kids to attend a run down creepy school like this. Though plagued by visions of lurking shadows and the unexplained death of her classmate, Luce starts making both friends and enemies and drawing the attention (both good and bad) of two guys. Despite his cold behavior, Luce is inexplicably drawn to Daniel, and she slowly finds herself on a path of discovery about her past and her potentially devastating futureLucinda Price is a seventeen-year-old girl from Georgia. She previously attended a private school in New Hampshire before the court ordered her be moved to a boarding school for troubled youth, after an incident left her alive, but her boyfriend Trevor dead. When she first enters Sword & Cross, she realizes how much her life will change. There are cameras watching her every move and there is a strict rule regarding cell phones. On her first day, she meets Arriane Alter, an excitable and enigmatic girl who immediately takes a liking to Luce. She shows her fondness by asking Luce to cut her hair just like Luce's, much to Luce's dismay for she does not want to mess her hair up. Also on her first day at Sword & Cross, Luce finds herself meeting the handsome Cam Briel and being drawn to the fascinating Daniel Grigori, who seems to have mixed feelings for her when he smiles and then flips her off. During the first day, she also meets Penn, the daughter of the now deceased caretaker. Luce also makes enemies with Molly, an angry girl with multiple facial piercings. and feels as if Daniel is familiar. Luce falls in love with Daniel,and with the help of Penn and the librarian she uncovers a secret Daniel has been keeping from her - she's reincarnates every lifetime after meeting him, whom she also discovers is an angel, as well as many of the other school kids. There is an angel fight at the end, where the librarian is found to be evil and murders Penn and tries to kill Luce but Daniel saves her. Cam is actually a demon and fights against Daniel in the battle.
