Overview:
Hell on earth.
That’s what it’s like for Luce to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel.
It took them an eternity to find one another, but now he has told her he must go away. Just long enough to hunt down the Outcasts—immortals who want to kill Luce. Daniel hides Luce at Shoreline, a school on the rocky California coast with unusually gifted students: Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans.
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?

 ______________________________


Unlike the first book which had enchanted me, Torment left me hanging disappointed. Was it because we still have no answers? Was it because the story was weak and full of black holes? Was it because you could see right through Lauren Kate's "mysteries" and twists? Was it because some things just didn't make sense? Was it because Luce had turned into a total bitch and spoiled brat? Not to mention stupid! It was probably a combination of all these and more.


Furthermore, i don't want to compare books, but o do prefer the more manly, tough and scary -not to mention sexy- Fallen Angles and Nephelim that Fitzpatrick portrays in her series hush hush to the gentle and sappy Fallen Angels of the Fallen series and the Nephelim who can do tricks like little warlocks and wizards. That did put me off a tad bit.


Moreover, something i just cannot wrap my mind around. How is it possible for angels and demons to get along and even form relationships? i just fail to understand this no matter how hard i try. Have you ever met a couple where one was a christian and the other a Satanist? it just doesn't work :/


Finally, i guess this isn't rally important but i just have to rant about it. Lauren Kate, why do fallen angles and demons in your series still have their wings? The whole point is that their wings were ripped out and that caused their fall which left them stranded on earth (or Hell). i know everyone has the freedom of imagining things the way they want and i don't really want to say it's wrong, but it just bothers me.
