But Daniel is chasing her throughout the centuries before she has a chance to rewrite history. How many deaths can one true love endure? And can Luce and Daniel unlock their past in order to change their future?
“spanning 5,000 years, this endeavours to explain every important moment of Luce and Daniel's relationship” — Fiona Noble The Bookseller 20110128 “Twilight-style success could be on the cards for the fallen angel saga amid Disney film romours.” — Fiona Noble The Bookseller 20110325 “I enjoyed reading Passion as much as I enjoyed reading Fallen and Torment. I read it in 3 or 4 sittings and I already can't wait for Rapture,” Notes of Life 20110601 “The descriptive writing style managed to bring all of the different time periods to glorious life within my imagination...The romance between Luce and Daniel was enchanting to behold although at times felt voyeuristic with the intensity of the emotion portrayed...What can I say about the ending but OMGosh Lauren Kate has done it again, the cliff hanger to top that at the end of Torment. I have no idea how she sustains it. I cannot believe that I have to wait until Spring 2012 in order to find out what happens next.” As A Mum 20110601 "Rating: A+ Lauren Kate is one fantastic author ...her books just get better and better... I remember reading the first page and thinking WOW! ...pure action in every single chapter...kept me thrilled and engaged the whole time. ...emotion filled... awesome joyride... very balanced with dialogue and description... The writing was beautiful. This book was sent from the heavens above. ...beautiful story burning with Passion. With love found from heaven and a curse sent from hell this will be the most magical book of the year." — Arjun Thakrar Excellent Reads 20110603
