I thought coming out here, away from Miss Sophia, was enough. It was broad and had three shallow risers, with desks on them, that led down to a couple of long tables. Luce closed her eyes and tried to fight back her stupid tears. Daniel would have to be important in Heaven in order to have caused such a big rift. Their one great strength was the reclusive angel Azazel, the only remaining starsmith, who still knew the art of producing starshots. Where are we?
Luce, arrabbiati una volta invece di scioglierti non appena arriva il biondino, e Daniel ti prego fattela na risata. Complimenti per il coraggio. Ciao a tutti vi segnalo la pagina ufficiale italiana di Facebook della saga di fallen! Ho letto tutti i vostri commenti riguardo alla saga di Fallen e devo ammettere che i primi due libri, nonostante la storia di angeli e demoni sia bella e interessante a me ha sempre affascinato , l'autrice sembra che non la sfrutti al meglio.. Il terzo libro Passion invece l'ho trovato molto meglio rispetto ai primi due, sia dal punto di vista descrittivo che quello della storia, inoltre grammaticalmente mi sembra anche che l'autrice sia maturata.
Ciao Lune! Purtroppo, visto che il primo mi aveva scatenato un tale nervosismo, ho preferito buttarmi su altri romanzi.
Bah, mi sa che in Twilight e company non ci siano viaggi nel tempo e oggetti da recuperare. Ma che oh, sei inaccontentabile! Allora il libro te lo scrivi tu e siamo tutti contenti? Comunque sia, abbiamo opinioni diverse al riguardo. Che ne pensi? La storia nascosta dietro questa saga di romanzi non nasce dal nulla. Ciao, per caso mi sono imbattuta in qst link.
Mi chiedo perche continui a leggere se non capisci. Il buon libro dovrebbe prenderti e farti sognare e mi pare che Kate lo abbia fatto. Poi dico non ti preoccupare del numero delle pagine che le foreste e gli alberi li abbattono a prescindere e cmq ci sono molti altri modi per rimpiangerli.
Avete citato coloro che come altri hanno saputo realizzare un buon libro. Le trame, le vicende narrate non nascono sugli alberi. Tu riusciresti a creare una storia che appassiona e che non si sia sentita mille volte? Forse per questo non inquadri i personaggi. Viceversa posso apprezzare un commento in stile: Detto questo ti auguro un buon proseguimento e buone letture.
La serie conta 6 romanzi, incluso il libro con i racconti: Fallen, 2. Torment, 3. Passion, 3. Rapture, 5. Unforgiven, Ciao ragazze io ho due domanda… 1 come si spezza la maledizione?? Ciao Alessia! Ma di sicuro se sei scrittrice come me certi punti li afferri diversamente. Grazie per la risposta… buona lettura a tutti.

Joyo ha detto: Nasreen ha detto: Elisabz ha detto: Carla Peres ha detto: DanielGrigori ha detto: The tides going out. And unless we do this my way, high tide tomorrow will wash Slayer here right back ashore. Youre too impulsive, Daniel, always were. Do you ever think more than one step ahead? Daniel crossed his arms and looked back out at the white crests of the waves.
A tourist catamaran from the San Francisco pier was gliding toward them. Once, the vision of that boat might have brought back a flood of memories. A thousand happy trips hed taken with.
Luce across a thousand lifetimes seas. But nownow that she could die and not come back, in this lifetime when everything was different and there would be no more reincarnationsDaniel was always too aware of how blank her memory was.
This was the last shot. For both of them. For everyone, really. So it was Luces memory, not Daniels, that mattered, and so many shocking truths would have to be gently brought to the surface if she was going to survive.
The thought of what she had to learn made his whole body tense up. If Cam thought Daniel wasnt thinking of the next step, he was wrong. You know theres only one reason Im still here, Daniel said. We need to talk about her. Cam laughed. I was. With a grunt, he hoisted the sopping corpse up over his shoulder.
The dead mans navy suit bunched up around the lines of rope Cam had tied. The heavy anchor rested on his bloody chest. This ones a little gristly, isnt he? Cam asked. Im almost insulted that the Elders didnt send a more challenging hit man.
Thenas if he were an Olympic shot-putterCam bent his knees, spun around three times to wind up, and launched the dead man out across the water, a hundred feet clear into the air. For a few long seconds, the corpse sailed over the bay. Then the weight of the anchor dragged it down.
It splashed grandly into the deep aquamarine water. And instantly sank out of sight. Cam wiped his hands. I think Ive just set a record. They were alike in so many ways. But Cam was something worse, a demon, and that made him capable of despicable acts with no remorse. Daniel was crippled by remorse. And right now, he was further crippled by love. You take human death too lightly, Daniel said.
This guy deserved it, Cam said. You really dont see the sport in all of this? That was when Daniel got in his face and spat, She is not a game to me.
And that is exactly why you will lose. Daniel grabbed Cam by the collar of his steel-gray trench coat. He considered tossing him into the water the same way hed just tossed the predator. A cloud drifted past the sun, its shadow darkening their faces.
Easy, Cam said, prying Daniels hands away. You have plenty of enemies, Daniel, but right now Im not one of them.
Remember the truce. Some truce, Daniel said. Eighteen days of others trying to kill her. Eighteen days of you and me picking them off, Cam corrected. It was angelic tradition for a truce to last eighteen. In Heaven, eighteen was the luckiest, most divine number: In some mortal languages, eighteen had come to mean life itselfthough in this case, for Luce, it could just as easily mean death.
Cam was right. As the news of her mortality trickled down the celestial tiers, the ranks of her enemies would double and redouble each day. Daniel had glimpsed the Elders in the shadows cast by the Announcers just that morning.
He had glimpsed something else, tooanother darkness, a deeper cunning, one he hadnt recognized at first. A shaft of sunlight punctured the clouds, and something gleamed in the corner of Daniels vision.
He turned and knelt down to find a single arrow planted in the wet sand. It was slimmer than a normal arrow, a dull silver color, laced with swirling etched designs. It was warm to the touch. Daniels breath caught in his throat. It had been eons since hed seen a starshot.
His fingers quaked as he gently drew it from the sand, careful to avoid its deadly blunt end. Now Daniel knew where that other darkness had come from in this mornings Announcers.
The news was even grimmer than hed feared. He turned to Cam, the. He wasnt acting alone. Cam stiffened at the sight of the arrow. He moved toward it almost reverently, reaching out to touch it the same way Daniel had.
Such a valuable weapon to leave behind. The Outcast must have been in a great hurry to get away. The Outcasts: Their one great strength was the reclusive angel Azazel, the only remaining starsmith, who still knew the art of producing starshots. When loosed from its silver bow, a starshot could do little more than bruise a mortal. But to angels and demons, it was the deadliest weapon of all.
Everyone wanted them, but none were willing to associate with Outcasts, so bartering for starshots was always done clandestinely, via messenger. Which meant the guy Daniel had killed was no hit man sent by the Elders. He was merely a barterer.
The Outcast, the real enemy, had spirited awayprobably at the first sight of Daniel and Cam. Daniel shivered. This was not good news. We killed the wrong guy. What wrong? Cam brushed him off. Isnt the world better off with one less predator?
Isnt Luce? He stared at Daniel, then at the sea. The only problem is The Outcasts. Cam nodded. So now they want her too. Daniel could feel the tips of his wings bristling under his cashmere sweater and heavy coat, a burning itch that made him flinch. He stood still, with his eyes closed and his arms at his sides, straining to subdue himself before his wings burst forth like the violently unfurling sails of a ship and carried him up and off this island and over the bay and away.
Straight toward her. He closed his eyes and tried to picture Luce. Hed had to tear himself away from that cabin, from her peaceful sleep on the tiny island east of Tybee.
It would be evening there by now. Would she be awake? Would she be hungry? The angels expected her to sleep all day and through the night. But by tomorrow morning, they would need to have a plan in place.
This was the first time Daniel had ever proposed a truce. To set the boundaries, make the rules, and draw up a system of consequences if either side transgressed it was a huge responsibility to shoulder with Cam. Of course he would do it, he would do anything for her. We have to hide her somewhere safe, he said. My side has. Shell be happy there. And educated in a way that wont endanger her.
And, most importantly, shell be shielded. Gabbe had already explained to Daniel the type of camouflage Shoreline could provide. Soon enough, word would spread that Luce was hidden away there, but for a time at least, within the schools perimeter, she would be nearly invisible. Inside, Francesca, the angel closest to Gabbe, would look after Luce. Outside, Daniel and Cam would hunt down and kill anyone who dared draw near the schools boundaries. Who would have told Cam about Shoreline? Daniel didnt like the idea of their side knowing more than his.
He was already cursing himself for not visiting the school before they made this choice, but it had been hard enough to leave Luce when he did. She can start as early as tomorrow. Assuming Cams eyes ran over Daniels faceassuming you say yes. Daniel pressed a hand to the breast pocket of his shirt, where he kept a recent photograph. Wet hair shining. A rare grin on her face. Usually, by the time he had a chance to get a picture of her in one lifetime, he had lost her again.
This time, she was still here. Come on, Daniel, Cam was saying. We both know what she needs. We enroll herand then let her. We can do nothing to hasten this part but leave her alone.
I cant leave her alone that long. Daniel had tossed out the words too quickly. He looked down at the arrow in his hands, feeling ill.
He wanted to fling it into the ocean, but he couldnt. Cam squinted. You havent told her. Daniel froze.
I cant tell her anything. We could lose her. You could lose her, Cam sneered. You know what I mean. Daniel stiffened. Its too risky to assume she could take it all in without. He closed his eyes to banish the image of the agonizing red-hot blaze. But it was always burning at the back of his mind, threatening to spread like wildfire.
If he told her the truth and killed her, this time she would really be gone. And it would be his fault. Daniel couldnt do anythinghe could not existwithout her. His wings burned at the thought.
Better to shelter her just a little longer. How convenient for you, Cam muttered. I just hope she isnt disappointed. Daniel ignored him. Do you really believe shell be able to learn at this school? I do, Cam answered slowly. Assuming we agree shell have no external distractions. That means no Daniel, and no Cam. That has to be the cardinal rule. Not see her for eighteen days? Daniel couldnt fathom it. More than that, he couldnt fathom Luces ever agreeing to it.
They had only just found each other in this lifetime and finally had a chance to be together. But, as usual, explaining the details could kill her. She couldnt hear about her past lives from the mouths of angels. Luce didnt know it yet, but very soon, she would be on her own to figure out. The buried truthspecifically what Luce would think of itterrified Daniel.
But Luces uncovering it by herself was the only way to break free from this horrible cycle. This was why her experience at Shoreline would be crucial. For eighteen days, Daniel could kill as many Outcasts as came his way. But when the truce was over, everything would be in Luces hands again.
Luces hands alone. The sun was setting over Mount Tamalpais and the evening fog was rolling in. Let me take her to Shoreline, Daniel said. It would be his last chance to see her. Cam looked at him strangely, wondering whether to concede.
A second time, Daniel had to physically force his aching wings back into his skin. Fine, Cam said at last. In exchange for the starshot.
Daniel handed over the weapon, and Cam slipped it inside his coat. Take her as far as the school and then find me. Dont screw up; Ill be watching.
And then? You and I have hunting to do. Daniel nodded and unfurled his wings, feeling the deep pleasure of their release all through his body. He stood for a moment, gathering energy, sensing the winds rough resistance. Time to flee this cursed, ugly scene, to let his wings carry him back to a place where he could be his true self. Back to Luce. And back to the lie he would have to live a little while longer.
The truce begins at midnight tomorrow, Daniel called, kicking back a great spray of sand on the beach as he lifted off and soared across the sky. Half asleep, she found it so much easier to pretend she was already reunited with Daniel. It felt like a lifetime since shed seen him, though it had really only been a few days. The absence of his voice, his warmth, the touch of his wings: An arm brushed against hers, and Luce opened her eyes.
She was face to face with a wide-eyed, brownhaired guy a few years older than her. Sorry, they both said at the same time, each retreating a few inches on either side of the planes armrest. Out the window, the view was startling. The plane was making its descent into San Francisco, and Luce had never seen anything like it before. As they traced the south side of the bay, a winding blue tributary seemed to cut through the earth on its way to the sea.
The stream divided a vibrant green field on one side from a swirl of something bright red and white on the other. She pressed her forehead to the double plastic pane and tried to get a better view. What is that? Salt, the guy answered, pointing. He leaned in closer. They mine it out of the Pacific. The answer was so simple, so. Almost a surprise after the time shed spent with Daniel and the othershe was still unpracticed at using the terms literallyangels and demons.
She looked out across the midnight-blue water, which seemed to stretch forever west. Sun-over-water had always meant morning to Atlantic coastraised Luce. But out here, it was almost night. Youre not from around here, are you? Luce shook her head but held her tongue.
She kept staring out the window. Before shed left Georgia this morning, Mr. Cole had coached her about keeping a low profile. The other teachers had been told that Luces parents had requested a transfer.
It was a lie. A few weeks before, this would have infuriated her. She had glimpsed a snapshot of another lifeone of so many shed shared with Daniel before. Shed discovered a love more important to her than anything shed ever thought possible. And then shed seen all of that threatened by a crazy, dagger-wielding old woman whom shed thought she could trust. There were more out there like Miss Sophia, that Luce knew.
But no one had told her how to recognize them. Miss Sophia had seemed normal, up until the end. Could the others look as innocent as. Luce swallowed, folded her hands on her lap, and tried to think about Daniel. Daniel was taking her someplace safe. Luce pictured him waiting for her in one of those gray plastic airport chairs, elbows on knees, his blond head tucked between his shoulders.
Rocking back and. Standing up every few minutes to pace around the baggage carousel. There was a jolt as the plane touched down. Suddenly she was nervous.
Would he be as happy to see her as she was to see him? She focused on the brown and beige pattern on the cloth seat in front of her. Her neck felt stiff from the long flight and her clothes had a stale, stuffy airline smell. The navy-blue-suited ground crew outside the window seemed to be taking an abnormally long time to direct the plane to its Jetway. Her knees bobbed with impatience. I take it youre staying in California for a while? The guy next to her offered a lazy smile that only made Luce more anxious to get up.
Why would you say that? What would make you think that? He blinked. With that huge red duffel bag and all. Luce inched away from him. She hadnt even noticed this guy until two minutes ago when hed jarred her awake. How did he know about her luggage? Hey, nothing creepy. He shot her a strange look. I was just standing behind you in line when you checked in.
Luce smiled awkwardly. I have a boyfriend streamed from her mouth. Instantly, her cheeks reddened. The guy coughed. Got it. Luce grimaced. She didnt know why shed said that. She didnt want to be rude, but the seat belt light went off and all she wanted to do was barrel past this guy and right off the plane. He must have had the same idea, because he edged backward in the aisle and swept his hand forward.
As politely as she could, Luce pushed past and bounded toward the exit. Only to get caught in a bottleneck of agonizing slowness on the Jetway.
Silently cursing all the casual Californians shuffling in front of her, Luce stood on her toes and shifted from foot to foot. Lauren Kate is the author of this classic series. At her very first day, she seems to have attractionin Daniel Grigori. He is living on the high-security zone where mobile phones are not allow and security cameras are moving all the time.
Daniel is not interested to have any kind of relation with her. Now, he has to go back to conquer his enemies who try to kill his love. He hidesLuce in a school which is situated in the California.
