Title: Passion

   Release Date: June 14th, 2011
   My Rating: 3.5 out of 5.0

     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.

My Review:

     Passion currently is the highlight to the series for me, there was something about this tale and how it was told that actually got me invested in the series. The way Luce dives back in time to try to figure and change things for herself, actually brought life to her character. As well, when Daniel dove back chasing her, trying to find her and stop her from rewriting history.

     This story is told from both Luce and Daniel's perspectives and this brings life to the two characters. In the series I thought the whole lack of information about Daniel and his mysterious attitude seemed to delude his character and made it hard to understand their relationship. However, in this story with part of the story coming from Daniel and even as Luce goes back through their relationship and reliving them, there is a sense of closure. I was happy to see this brought to life, and I wanted this sooner.

     There was one glaring hole I felt needed addressing in this backwards time travel, and the question arose really early for me. Well since Luce and Daniel came from the future, wouldn't anything they do to the past versions of themselves affect what happens to later versions and trickle down to them? What I'm getting at, was since Luce went back and did stuff with her past selves, to see how much Daniel really loved her and why, wouldn't by that technically HAVE to happen to make her the way she is? Basically if she didn't go back in time, she wouldn't be who she is today? I kept asking that, the further she went back and the answer never came.

     Now back to the characters, Luce and Daniel grew on me. This book brought to life their relationship and showed just how eternal their love has been, and just what Daniel went through for her. It wasn't like Daniel just took their relationship for granted because of the curse they had, but it was more that he loved her so much that everyone else would call it a curse.

     Than there Bob the gargoyle, and I hated this character. For who he is (which I guessed almost right away), and what else. Cam really never made an appearance in this book, it's not that I'm asking for the love triangle to make an appearance in this book, at all. What I was wondering was, why was Cam going through time to catch Luce? Miles and Shelby's reason for going back was rather apparent, they were friends. As well, when Miles and Shelby found out just what Daniel went through their whole demeanor of him changed. Which is what happened to me throughout this book. This book did bring Daniel and Luce together.
