Synopsis

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

Review

I started reading Fallen in early 2010. This novel had captured my interest from the prologue! Since then, I had waited every year for the release of its incoming installments (Torment, PassionFallen in Love, Rapture). The love story of Daniel and Luce had captivated me enormously, leaving me breathless every time I turn the last page. The mystery of their love is enthralling, making the yearly wait for the books agonizing. But everything has an end—the waiting has ended, and so must the story.

Rapture is the last book in the Fallen series, written by the New York Times best-selling author Lauren Kate. The book continues after Luce’s announcer journey in Passion. The main focus of the story is Daniel, Luce, and the angels’ mission to stop Lucifer from repeating—rewriting—the past. Lucifer intends to go back to the time of The Fall, the time when the angels were casted out of heaven. This then leads to the Roll Call, where one powerful angel is destined to tip the scales with the choice.

The angel myth woven into this love story is amazing. Lauren Kate, for me, is an amazing writer. Her narration is clear, fluid, and sublime. She created this beautiful world filled with divine entities with just the use of words. She had discussed the myth in full detail, leaving me wonderstruck. The Fallen series have always had that effect on me. I don’t know if it’s the story itself or the way it was constructed—either way, the whole thing is just beautiful! The characters were amazing. Kate had really made them real. I could feel Daniel’s pain at loosing Luce for the past seven thousand years. I understand Luce’s confusion on her true self. Their feelings and thoughts were perfectly conveyed in the narration and dialogues.

This novel is, as I like to call it: the book of answers. All the things you’ve been wondering about Daniel and Luce’s love life will be revealed—and you will be surprised at what you’re about to find out. The things I used to believe about the story changed after reading Rapture—even my thoughts and impressions on certain characters changed. I didn’t know that the story ran deeper —like to the depths of hell. I was overly anxious to discover the ending—I had no idea how Kate would put an end to a love story which seemed endless, but she did. And it was perfect.  I couldn’t have asked for a better ending—better yet, a new beginning.

Love is definitely the only thing worth fighting for. Daniel and Luce’s love is the perfect example of what love really is: unselfish, kind, and makes us the best versions of ourselves (as what Daniel said).

Rating: 5!!!!!!!!

The perfect ending. Rapture is beautiful as iridescent angel wings. Love conquers all, and I shall choose love forevermore. This book made me happy but it also made me sad for it has to end . I’m just glad it ended beautifully. Luce and Daniel’s eternal love definitely left a scar not just in my mind—but also in my heart. The Fallen series is unforgettable!!! ❤
