What makes your heart race a little faster? Just in time for Valentine's Day, it's FALLEN IN LOVE, four wholly original new stories collected in a new novel set in the Middle Ages by Lauren Kate. FALLEN IN LOVE gives fans the much-talked about but never-revealed stories of FALLEN characters as they intertwine with the epic love story of Luce and Daniel. The stories include: Love Where You Least Expect It: The Valentine of Shelby and Miles , Love Lessons: The Valentine of Roland; Burning Love: The Valentine of Arriane; and Endless Love: The Valentine of Daniel and Lucinda.
I really enjoyed this book! I love how you finally get to see the story told from different perspectives. Each story has it's own little plots. You learn new things about each character and it is nice to see those perspectives!
Cover: It's beautiful. I love how all of Lauren Kate's books have a girl in a beautiful dress and are just simple and they tell a story in each cover!
Plot: Each part had a different plot. They were all different and as interesting as the next. It was nice to have the stories of the different characters and to find out how certain things happened. Like how Arriane got her scares! And how each person used to have a love, and how being an angel made it go away.
Shelby and Miles: I loved watching their Valentines day! It was so cute and how they slowly started to realize how close they really are. Sure, their focused on getting back to Shoreline, but they take the time to enjoy each others company in the Middle Ages!
Roland: It was really nice to get to know more of Roland. He wasn't always the way he was and it was good to know why. He was different from the calm, cool, and collected Roland he is in the actual books. You get to know what Roland really is like, and that made me love the demon even more!
Arriane: I learned some new things about Arriane. Like that she's gay, which doesn't bother me! It might have been mentioned in the books but I never picked up on it. You also learn how she got those nasty scares all over her body, which depressed me...
Luce and Daniel: This one was like every other Luce and Daniel story. It bored me a little because it was kind of like... She's depressed, Daniel takes away the depression, they kiss, the end. Well this is the one Valentines they get to spend together and that part was sweet, but everything else was a little predictable.
All in all: I really did enjoy this in between story. It was a chance to get inside of some of the other characters heads, which was a refresher! 41 out of 51 tacos!
