Luce and Daniel finally get their happily ever after...


Rating: 4/5

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.

Jumping back into this after so many years was simply refreshing. Although I didn’t remember everything from the previous three books, I remembered enough to where I wasn’t lost. Plus it also helped Luce recalled other memories from the previous books throughout this one.


Although this is the fourth book out of five in this series, it really is the final book for Luce and Daniel. Their story finally ends in a sweet happy ending. Even if it wasn’t the ending I had hoped they’d get, I’m happy to see they finally get their happy ever after. I will admit the ending of this was very sad and emotional for me. As I mentioned it wasn’t what I was hoping for. But due to the circumstances, I can logically see why it ended the way it did.


Their story finally ends in a sweet happy ending. Even if it wasn’t the ending I had hoped they’d get, I’m happy to see they finally get their happy ever after.

Even though it’s been years since I read the previous books, I know I didn’t enjoy this one as much as the others. Not to say I didn’t enjoy it, I really did. This book flowed so well I was breezing through each chapter. The chapters were on the longer side compared to what I’ve been reading lately, but they didn’t feel long at all. I was at the end of the chapters before I knew it.


When it comes to why I didn’t quite enjoy this book as much as the others, this one seemed to be all about Luce and Daniel’s relationship, it really wasn’t. It focused more on the quest to stop Lucifer. I wanted more romance. Sorry, not sorry? I also didn’t really enjoy the fact Luce felt very vulnerable and helpless in this one, unlike the other books, or at least from what I remember. It felt like Luce was kept more in the dark than she should have been and while the ending does explain to why that is, it doesn’t really make it right in my opinion.


I wanted more romance. Sorry, not sorry?

Another thing I really wasn’t a fan of was the relationship between Lucifer and Luce. I felt really bad for Luce when the details between them came to light. I didn’t find it right at all. Lucifer took advantage of Luce and seeing how Luce sees it otherwise was hard for me to read.


Overall, I’m happy to say I finally finished the Fallen series. I know I still have the fifth book to read that’s part of this series. However, the next one focuses on a different character, Cam, and his story. But when it comes to Luce and Daniel, we’re really at the end. It was a sad and emotional ride, but I’m happy to see they got there in the end. I think anyone who enjoys paranormal romances would love the Fallen series! I know I truly did.
