1. But what are these books about?


Firs of all, this is a love story. Are you thinking in a relationship between a pretty girl and a handsome boy of seventeen years old that use to go to the cinema or to a restaurant and that are always kissing each other? If you have thought about this you have made a mistake. FALLEN isn't something like this. FALLEN is something never heard or read . FALLEN is extremely gloomy,bloody and depressant. FALLEN is when you love someone who you shouldn't love because in fact... it is completely dangerous for you. Your life is in danger . I suppose you will be confused, very confused. But how to explain it without telling you the most important secrets or fears of the characters? It is so difficult... Anyway, lets try:

As many of this type of stories, it all starts with a girl. She could be a commom girl but she 

isn't. And  she's called Lucinda (although her family and friends call her as Luce) Price. And 

as many of this type of stories that compound the youth literature , she's seventeen years old. 

Do you know what is the funniest part of the way that the girl think is herself? She really

 believes that is a normal girl but sometimes you are not what you think... That is what exactly 

happens to Luce. 

Because in one way or another she is different...


Luce has always been attended by doctors. Psychologists . She starts going to these doctors 

when she was a little girl and she asked to her dad if the SHADOWS didn't make him feel fear.

Obviously , no one could see 'these shadows' that Luce had always  seen and it is why their 

parents thought that she need doctors help. First, they though that it was just an imagination a 

little girl but when Luce grew up and continued seeing 'this shadows'  they started believing 

that her daughter had a serious problem. After  years having pills and therapies Luce started 

being depressed and sad and telling doctors that finally she was going ok , that she didn't see 

more shadows.  And doctors didn't believe her at all but the let her to get in a normal high 

school where  she met her best friend , Callie ,  and a  really cute boy that she liked called 

Trevor( he also liked her). Also, her realtion with her parents was excellent.Don't you think 

that it is a normal and good life? Yes , it is. But with Luce, life hasn't been kind . 

Never.

Her comfortable and nice life changed a night when she and her friend from the high school ( 

Dover) decided to go camping. Luce has always selected some places where she must not go 

because of the high probability of the appearence of the 'shadows' . One of them was the 

mountain and if they are  near a lake and at the middle ot the night, better. This all mixed 

when she was walking with Trevor and he tried to kiss her. Shadows came faster . Luce 

started being nervous. And when their lips joined , Trevor burned.

After that, all was very confused for Luce and without noticed it , she was in the approved 

school called Sword and Cross. 

Since that moment it started the  real story of these books...

In that place, Luce knew some... unusual people. As for 

example , Arriane , an outlandish and 

rebel girl that is sometimes involved in illegal things but that 

 was the first one into accept Luce.

Luce also knew another girl with a bizarre name that was 

finally called as Penn and that became 

her best friends because her kind and gentle way of being, so 

different from Arriane's. 

And... Cam. Well, how to describe Cam? He is as good-loocking

 as helpful . The first person that 

was kind with her since the  moment she arrived. The most 

popular boy. The one that makes 

the biggest parties  and the boy whose all the girls will fall in love.

But... there is also anoher boy that is as irresistible ... Daniel. With his blond hair and his 

violet eyes everyone will stay more than one moment loocking him . He is sometimes solitary 

 and itseems that he really hates Luce , though she don't know what did she made him.! Even, 

when Luce looks at him she feels like she knows him for a long time... But it can't be, isn't it? 

And why is he so surly with her? 

Luce is now , completely confused. But she is sure of something. She will find the reason of the 

hate of Daniel to her , though it could cause to her 


inimaginable consequences...


AS YOU CAN SEE THESE BOOKS ARE ABOUT  A CATASTROPHICAL STORY OF LOVE...

BUT THIS IS JUST THE START , LET SEE HOW IS THE STORY DEVELOPED...



  • FALLEN

The first book of the 'Fallen Books' starts with the arrival of Luce to the approved school Swords and Cross. Then, she was very frightened because she didn't know what she was going to wait there and she believed that all the teenagers  were going to be alcoholics , depressed or even mad as her parents and  doctors think that Luce is. But although she can't use her mobile phone and she can only make a thirty-minutes call  each week , she is soonly feeling a little bit comfortable with her staying. First, when Arriane saw her, she started saying that the 'new girl' is from her 'property'  and nobody will touch Luce. The probles in Swords and Cross (taking away the weather , the horrible cementery and the church that they use as gym) are Molly and Gabe. Molly is the biggest, the silliest and the most aggressive girl at the school and she doesn't like Luce because at first, she's vegetarian. So, when Molly put all of her lunch( made of ham) in the hair of Luce...well Luce has to run to the toilet because of her disgusting hair and her tears. There is were she met Penn, a normal girl , a little bit fat and the daughter of the last gardener(he was dead) that decided to stay near the tomb of her father in the school , even she isn't a problematic girl. Gabe is as glamorous as wicked , and at first she didn't talk very much with Luce, something that wasn't bad for her  becuase she didn't get on well with the people that looks so stuck-up. Now, let's talk about the boys. There, all the boys look... different. Most of them wear tattos, piercings and sagging pants. Others  wear dreadlocks as a boy called Roland that can obtein everything people ask for in the black market , altough he doesn't look  a bad boy. And like in every place there are 'The Boys' . They are those that are extremely handsome or mysterious. And in this school there are two: Cam and Daniel. 

BUT LUCE DOESN'T KNOW THE REAL FACT ABOUT THE BOYS AND IT'S GOING TO BE HER OWN HELL...


Cam is the first boy that Luce met. He's good-loocking , helpful , very kind and obviously, he fell in love with Luce since the first time he saw her in the corridor . But does he really love her?
 He is also darked-haired and his eyes looks green. 

Anyway, Daniel is handsome, very handsome. He is blond-haired , narrow-minded and his eyes sometimes looks violet that is one thing that strange a lot to Luce because appentelly she is the only one that can see this. Daniel doesn't get on well with Luce since the first time he saw her in the car park and even he makes a really rude sign with her finger to her. But Luce doesn't know what she has done to him and because of this she tries to start a frienship with him , wether he likes it or not. Sometimes he looks like he hates her and others he stayed hours looking her .

An example of this is  when one day  all of them were punished cleaning the cementery and they both were cleaning a statue , so Luce started talking to him asking why he hates her . A shadow appeared. Luce started feeling nervous and also Daniel looked to the same place that Luce did. To the place were it was the shadow! Can he see shadows as Luce do? After this, the statue fell down and... Daniel moved so quickly and protected Luce!  It makes Luce feeling incredibly confused and she didn't want another thing that to forget everything about this place and its strange people. But she has to  stay there a long time and it's not as bad as it looks; she also  lived a lot of  good experiences with her new friends, Arriane and Penn. For example, they went to a party that Cam make in his room and because of the decision of Luce to investigate Daniel ( The boy is so cute but don't you think that it is a little bit... obssesive? ) they searched in Internet and in a  book that looks to be written by a forefather of Daniel ( named as him!)  called Watchers. What an unusual name for a biographic book! But something more strange happened when it disappeared... 
This night a fire started and she had to scape form the library where Penn and she were looking the book. But the fire didn't come alone ... it came with a lot of shadows and it started when Penn was talking on the other side of the library with Mrs. Sophia , the librarian , so Luce is alone except by a boy that was readind near called Todd. He is also a new boy in Swords and Cross but his stayed there didn't last a lot because when they were traying to scape of this big and amazing fire both of them fell down and he broke his neck. Luce doesn't know him very well but when she woke up in the hospital she felt so bad for his dead thincking that it was her fault . Also the fact that the polices were threre didn't help so much and when Daniel arrived with flowers to her, Luce was going to call the nurse to make herself sleep again because she was getting mad!! 
After that , Daniel continued being so surly and Luce started getting on well with Cam. 
He gave her a necklace and also make a special picnic where they saw as a snake changed its skin, something of wich Luce had a lot of fear and Cam laughed about it in a diabolical way... 
And it isn't the end because as I said , Cam gaved to Luce a necklace. She received that present from him during an evening of those when she was looking for information about Daniel with Penn at the library . And  after gived it to her, Cam tried to kiss her... although he couldn't because when their lips were nearly closed, Cam was taken away from Luce by an unexpected force... Daniel! Then, Daniel and Cam started to fight as  if  both of them were professional fighters! But they continued outside the library when Luce and Penn finally could separate them , although it didn't stop their fithting until the History teacher , Mr . Cole appeared. 
Since that moment the boys started doing some unusual things: One day, Daniel took Luce  to a forest near the school and then he told her to swim to an island that was at the middle of a lake . When they did that , Daniel started talking as he was wishing that Luce would remember something and after that he returned to the forest swimmimg , without noticing that Luce wasn't going behind him! 
Other day , Cam prepared an 'excursion' to a bar that was far away from the school. As the students in Sword and Cross must not leave the campus, Luce was very frightened about the idea of this 'excursion' . Finally , when she saw that Cam had turned off the cameras and he had rented a limousine for her , she decided to go. There, Cam apologised because of his fighting with Daniel,  pointing out  again how kind is he. But in that moment some alcoholics that were there, started having a discussion and one of them tried to take Luce , so Cam started fighting again and Luce run away from the bar. While she was scaping from there an 'angel' appeared and took Luce away from the bar in his amazing black car. 
Do you know who is that 'angel'? Obviously, it's Daniel. 

        And since that moment , Luce was sure about who is the boy that she loves the most and              forever.

The sad part of this lovely story came when Luce found out that they will never be together for a long time because as I said Daniel looked like an angel... in fact because he is one. 

Daniel is a FALLEN ANGEL. You will think about demons, but he isn't a demon. 

And when Luce found out this, the real  fight started. A fight beetween angels, fallen angels and demons.

Now, let me surprise you; Are you guessing who are these eternal rivals? Look at this:
Angels: Arriane and Gabe.
Fallen angels: Daniel
Demons: Cam, Molly and Roland.
Did you expect that? Because I sincerily didn't expect that for example Gabe was going to be an angel or Roland , a demon. It would be better at the other way!

Anyway, the fight started and Luce, Mrs. Sophia ( the librarian, that results that was involved in 'this world' ) and Penn was at the middle of a war of titanes. They run to save their lives but a lightning hit Penn and they had to move quite slowly. Then, they arrived to the gym-church in wich...
The real identity of Mrs. Sphia was exposed: She was a Elders of Zhsmaelin, a radical heavenly sect( that want to finsih whith the 'stupid story of love' of them), and  in wich she has the highest position. 
She turned out to be evil. She killed Penn and tried to kill Luce too , until Daniel, Arianne and Gabbe saved her giving  the opportunity to Sophia to escape.

Finally, the war between angels and demons stopped during a short period of time accorded by Daniel and Cam  and they took Luce to a safer  cottage that will be the last place in which Luce will be before the really storm , her own storm , starts...

THIS IS THE LAST CONVERSATION OF THIS FIRTS BOOK BETWEEN DANIEL AND CAM AND AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE ARE SECRETS THAT LUCE DOESN'T ABOUT DANIEL AND HERSELF ...


              SECRETS THAT WILL BE THE REASON OF HER SALVATION OR HER DESTROYING                          




  • TORMENT
Luce is in danger. Though Cam and Daniel made a threat to stop the war during a  short period of time , there are other kind of fallen angels and demons that are loocking for Luce because as they said she is the key to enter again in Heaven and to have the pardon of God or to obtein a reward from the selfsame Lucifer! 
But what is it happening here? asks Luce to herself. 
She doen't know the true and even, Daniel isn't going to tell her nothing. He is going to put her in a  new and 'special' high school for those who are offspring from angels or demons and humans. 
Luce hates this idea, she doesn't get on well with her room partner , Shelby (that is the completely opposite of her best friend Callie , and the dead one Penn) and the lessons aren't the normal ones. But she will adapt to her new home when she meets the funny and kind Miles and she will understand what was  going wrong with Shelby.

Then , another point to talk about is her new lessons , given by a female angel and a male demon ( who are in love) , about how to use shadows. This is so important for Luce , because this shadows are like windows to see the facts of the past and foremost , that is what Luce needs the most; to know her past , to understand her present . So, she decided to see things in this kind of Announcers though it is not too safe even if you are an expert. She continues being alive because of 
the help of Shelby and Miles, who are going to become really good friends. And Miles is starting falling
in love with Luce , though she said to him that she will always be with Daniel. 

One of the most problems of Luce is that her parents don't know anything . But not about her fallen 
angel boyfriend that is actually killing the inmortals that want to take Luce. I suppose that the kind 
of parents of nowaday won't matter about that. They will matter about the fact that Luce isn't in Swords 
and Cross as they think she is because of the things that Mr. Cole says to them , ( he is another teacher 
involved in this world, but he isn't evil ) making them believe in the 'security' of her dear daughter .
But as every year , Luce' parents want to spend time with Luce in Thanksgiving Day so , she will have to 
go to out the protection of Shoreline ( the high school) . 
At first , the meeting with her parents was ok. And when her best friend Callie took an airplane to get there
it was perfect.  Also , Miles and Shelbie get there and do you know who else? All of her angels and demons friends!

It was going to be the best Thanksgiving Day of all of them but next, when her parents went out to make some 
shoppings, the teenagers have unexpected guests...

THE OUTCAST GOT INTO LUCE'S HOUSE AND THEY HAD STELLAR ARROWS, THE ONLY
 WEAPON WHICH CAN KILLED AN INMORTAL . THEY WANTED TO TAKE LUCE AND THE 
BATTLE STARTED . THEY WERE LOSING AND THE ONLY WAY OF STOP THIS BEFORE 
ANYONE OF THEM DIED WAS THAT LUCE WENT WITH THEM ... AND SHE DECIDED TO 
DO IT. ANYWAY, MILES WASN'T GOING TO LET HER DOING THIS AND WHEN LUCE WENT
WITH THEIR ENEMIES HE CREATED AN ILLUSION OF HER , SO THE  DELUDED OUTCAST
 JUST TOOK IT  . SO, IT GAVE HER THE CHANCE TO HIDE HERSELF FROM THE OUTCAST. 

THE PITTY PART IS THAT EXCEPT LUCE AND SHELBY NOBODY KNEW
ABOUT THE POWER OF MILES , AND BELIEVING IT WAS THE REAL LUCE WHO WAS 
GOING WITH THE OUTCAST , CAM KILLEDHER , MAKING THE OUTCAST  HAD TO RETIRE 
AND DANIEL GOT MAD. BETWEEN THIS 
CHAOS LUCE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO , IF HAPPEAR TO TOOK 
DANIEL AWAY FROM CAM BECAUSE HE WANTED TO KILLED HIM , CONTINUING 
LIVING A LIE, OR AS SHE WOULD LIKE , TO FORGOT ABOUT EVERYTHING AND 
RETURNED  TO A NORMAL LIFE IN WHICH SHE WILL ONLY MATTER ABOUT 
HOW TO DRESS OR HER MARKS IN  A NORMAL HIGH SCHOOL. 
SUDDENLY, SHE SAW A SHADOW , AND WITHOUT THINKING SHE PASSED TOWARD HER
 AMAZED FRIENDS THAT LOOKED AT HER WITH MADNESS IN HIS EYES AND 
GOT INTO THE SHADOW TO THE PAST. 
EVERYBODY STARTED TO PLAN WHAT TO DO TO SAVE LUCE OF HER OWN PAST 
BUT THERE IS JUST ONE THAT DIDN'T DUDE ABOUT ANYMORE THAN HER AND 
HERE IT IS WHAT HE DID ...

  • PASSION
"Daniel was sended off from the Hell when he chose 'Love' instead of Goodness or Evilnees. Instead of Heaven or Hell, he chose the love of a human girl called Lucinda in front of God , and because of this , God casted a curse on them; They will never be together longuer than when Lucinda will be 17 and when it happened , she will die  burned and then , she will revive again and again , for all the eternity". 


In this third book Luce will find herself in a world plenty of shadows. She will also know  about another types of lifes and she will find many answers for the questions about herself that nobody has answered her before.

Luce is probably the most stupid girl in the world. She has entered in a shadow without thinking the place where she wanted to go and now she is lost in the darkness . Well , that it is what she thinks but no one  has seen him or herself in that situation so , it's better not to criticize her . 

Luce calms herself and starts thinking where she should go and then , she is sure of  something : The best place to visit is wherever her ancients I's have lived because in those moments in which her ancient I will be with Daniel so, she will understand what is the curse like. 


But she need help and help was given to her when from the darkness of the shadow in which she was walking , she heard a voice . This voice wasn't high or soft and  apparently , it wasn't produced by anyone or anything. This voice laugh at her situation and soonly a brilliant light made Luce couldn't see . Then ... Daniel appeared , not wait a second , a gargoyle appeared , not , a frog. A frog? What was going on there? Next , the voice took the form of a gargoyle and presented himself as Bill , someone inside of the shadows that usually helps those who doesn't know what to do.

At first , she didn't get on well with the laughing at her gargoyle , but she had to admit that he was the only one there that could help her. So, they starting going to the most significant places in which Luce has died because of the curse . Bill helps her to remember those situation and to understand a little bit more each time her love by Daniel . 

They went to different ages and countries like in the times of a young Luis XIV in France , in England in the times of Shakespeare and in which the Globe was used to representate theatre plays , in Chichen Itza with the Mayan civilization or even with the Egyptians in the Ancient Egypt! 

In all the places that Luce visits she understands a little bit more about her and Daniel's curse and life and by anything , she understands that her love for Daniel is real and not just an stupid curse and that the real  reason because of her death is to know... TO KNOW THE TRUE. The only think that she doesn't know is why were they cursed and when it was the first time that they met. But Bill has other plans...

Anyway, let's come back to the 'saviours' that are all of them going behing Luce trying to safe her from herself. But it is race against time and when they went to a place , Luce has just left it. Daniel is the most deseperated one , because he believes that whatever she sees will be the cause of her destroying . And Cam... well, Cam is the only one who goes in time but he just enjoys himself loocking at Luce and the way she passes to 3-D . To pass to 3-D is to contact with your ancient I of the time in which you are, going inside it and  having a double personality , yours and its , so you could live like he or she and you will only be separate again when his or her body dies. 

Now, let's return with the 'other plans' of Bill or should I say ... Lucifer? Yes , he is. Amazed ? Confused? I'm sure you are all of these things , as Luce when she noticed it . But it is too late , and Lucifer isn't going to ler her to scape . In fact, he is going to open a new shadow to ...

                                          THE FALL DAY ...

in which his plan is to make her fall with all of the angels and then, to open another shadow at the end of the Fall to our nowadays , so everything that has happened, the lasts five thousands millions years , will be erased. 

Fortunately , Daniel cames on time . He appeared during his ancient I was deciding to choose love and so , to will have one day the pardon of God , being posssible to break the curse. Then , he also fell with the rest of the angels who didn't have time to choose and there, he finds Luce. 
He opens an shadow and return to Savnnah , nowadays .

There, their friends will be waiting to them after they returned through the shadows. 

And then, time is the most valuable thing they have, because Lucifer is coming and they only have 9 days( the time that takes the Fallen) to find the way to stop Lucifer and it is... TO FIND THE PLACE OF THE FALL. For this , they will need three relics , three special objects that were created at the moment of the Fallen and that are the only things that will help them...


... TO SAVE A WORLD IN WHICH A SECOND WILL BE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH...

HUMANS
Lucinda(Luce)Prior:Luce looks a normal girls at first sight although this character is one of the most important ones for her relevance during the story. She is black and curly haired and paled-face . She lives in Savannah, Georgia. Since she was a little child , Luce has seen shadows around her and  it is because people think she is mad and why she has to go to psychologists. Because of an accident that Luce isn' sure about if she has the fault in it, Luce has to go the approved school Sword and Cross where she will find herself. 
And there is a curse in which Luce is involved, the curse of her love and Daniel's. But now, there's a little change in the curse; Luce Price won't revive again if she dies because she doesn't believe in any religion or in any God. That's why she has so many problems with heaven or hell that want to see her DIED.

Pennyweather (Penn) Van Syckle-Lockwood: As I said she has a little bizarre but original name. Penn became in the best friend of Luce during her staying in Swords and Cross. She was a nice and intelligent girl that helped a lot Luce in her search of who is Daniel .She died murded by Mrs. Sophia and now, she rest in the cemementery of Sword and Cross next to the tomb of his father.

Callie: Callie was Luce's best friend when she was in the high school named Dover. She is just a normal teenager like any other with her likes in fashion , music , boys...

Luce's parents: They are really good parents that want Luce to get well from her 'illness' , as they think  that Luce's a little bit mad. They live in a discret and normal house in Georgia and they have a dog.

NEPHILIM(OFFSPRING OF ANGELS AND HUMANS)

Shelby Sterris: One of the 'special' students of Shoreline, Shelby is a blond-haired girl with a lot of personality and sarcastic humor . She is the room partner of Luce and at first, she didn't get on well with Luce because one time ( while Luce was reviving) she has a short relationship with Daniel ( though Daniel didn't feel nothing for her) but finally they became in really good friends. As she says she can't live without the yoga and a  lip balm and she has a lot of ex-boyfriends. One of them, Phill , was a Outcast( one  junior angel that can't see) that wants to kidnap Luce.

Miles Fisher: Miles is a very kind boy that became so faster in Luce's friend and another 'special' student of Shoreline. He has the ability of project images of somebody that he loves. He is brown-haired and his blue eyes are really lovely though you won't see them because of his cap of Dodgers that he always wears. He fell in love with Luce but finally he noticed that he really prefers Shelby.


FALLEN ANGELS
“I’ve already had to wait so long.”
“How long?” Luce asked.
“Not so long that I’ve forgotten that you’re worth everything. Every sacrifice. Every pain.” 
― Lauren Kate, Fallen


Longtime no post guys! Mrs Grigori is back ! What does everyone think of Jeremy and Addisonfor Daniel and Luce? I’m psyched!
Daniel Grigori: Daniel is a blond-haired and narrow-minded 'boy' . His eyes sometimes looks violet but Luce is the only one that can see it. This is how is he , but WHAT is he?

Daniel is a FALLEN ANGEL. 

When Lucifer went away from God with some of his angels , and next, God asked him if he was going to choose heaven or hell , Daniel chose LOVE. His love for a human called Lucinda. Since that moment , both of them were cursed : Lucinda and Daniel will always find each other along Lucinda's lifes but their love will end catastrophically with Lucinda's death when she will finally  know the real identity of Daniel. And this will happen before Lucinda will be seventeen. So, by this way , Daniel will always be miserable and will always remind his decision. 
He is the only fallen angel that hasn't decide yet in wich band is, so when he will choose the Balance will tilt for heaven or hell. 
At his back , he has two scars where his big and white wings are.

ANGELS

Arriane Alter: Arriane is a fallen angel(although she chose to be by the side of God) that take cares of Daniel and Luce. In Swords and Cross, she will look completely rebel and outlandish, though  in fact, she isn't. Arriane will be the first friend that Luce met .
As an angel , Arriane is very protector and because of she is it , her wings are white with silver fibers . In his neck she has strange scars that has never disappear , though the angels cure themselves so fast...

Gabrielle(Gabe) Givens:  Gabe will look so stuck-up with her blond hair , her manicure and her way of being so fabulous but she isn't like that. She is a really warrior. Another protector angel of Daniel and Lucinda that doesn't mind hitting some demons, specially Cam.  She is also by the side of God.

Annabelle: Fallen angel that chose to be by the side of God and that  is also a protector of the main characters. She acted as Arriane's sister in the first book during 'The Parents Day' in Swords and Cross. 


DEMONS
Cameron(Cam) Briel:Cam is a laughing at the world 'boy'. He will look atractive and so helpful with his wonderful green eyes and his manners but in fact, all the demons will be like that if they want to obtein something from you. Because of he is a demon, his wings are golden. And his real name is Cambriel.
He was a fallen angel as Daniel but he didn't choose anything because after Daniel's decision, God got angry and make everyone that hasn't chosen to fall. 
So, he became into a demon after he lost the girl that he loved called Lilith, offspring of the fist wife of Adan, because he couldn't get married with her in an indian church as it will explote when an angel or demon put a feet on it. He also couldn't tell her was he really was and it make he felt so miserable. By this times, Daniel and Cam were like brothers but after it, they get away from each other and Cam even became a near follower of Lucifer when he let him putting on his skin the Lucifer's symbol( a sun surrounded by a circle) . 
Since that moment Cam has been a lover of the destruction and the pain and his power is just comparable with Daniel's. He isn't interested in Luce but he wants Daniel to choose hell and to tilt the Balance and the only way of doing this is killing Luce. 

Roland Sparks: Roland is quite a good 'boy' , taking away the fact that he is a demon. He was the angel of the music and he can actually control animals and humans with his music. He has dreadlocks and he is black-skinned. He was in love with a medieval girl called Rosaline but after remembering what happened to Cam he decided to let her live her life as a normal human. His best-friend is Arriane and he really gets on well with Luce and the rest of the angels.

Mery Margaret(Molly) Zane:Molly is the type of 'girl' that when you see she, you will think that is a really demon. And you won't fail in this. She is a very disgusting 'girl' that has never get on well with Luce. But after being with her and the angels some time , she started to appreciate them and she isn't a really bad demon after all. 



3. Places where everything can happen

Mainly, these novels take places in Savannah ( in the state of Georgia, U.S.A) but there are some exceptions as for example, when Luce went to the Shoreline Academy( in the second book, Tormen) that is in the sunny state of California. Moreover, in the third book (Passion) our characters entered in shadows following Luce that decided to see her past lifes to understand her rool in the curse and if the love of Daniel and she, is really love or just the efects of a curse , travelling around the world going back in history until the day of the Fall. In the fourth book our characters flies around the world searching the relics that will say to them where was the Fall. This relics were in Viena, Aviñón and Venecia and the Fallen was  in...Troya. 

So, the place whre everything can happen, where their glory or their pain will start is absolutly , Troya


4. Lauren Kate, the author

Lauren Kate is an american writer born the twenty-first of March of 1981 in Dallas, Texas ( United States) . She studied at the university of Atlanta, Georgia , in which she got inspiration to write about Swords and Cross during the Civil War. 
In her literary works we can find
- The mentioned Fallen books
-The trilogy called Teardrop composed by Teardrop , Waterfall( not release until October 2014) and another book that hasn't been written yet.
-The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove. 


There isn't so much information to talk about this writer , but her book Fallen was the third in the New York Times list and Torment was the first, lasting many weeks in this position. That is a really good start!:)





5. Short stories

Lauren Kate has also created a few number of short stories about the Fallen saga . They are fourteen and they are about somethings that happened to almost all of the characters . They are also used to understand some parts of the books( for example, what really happened to Trevor)  or just to entertain a little bit ourshelves with more things of the guys . They are compiled in a E-book called Angels In The Dark .

If you entered in this link you will find these short stories and  many other information about Fallen and its film recording . The link is a little bit strange because the original blog in is Spanish and I had to change the language into English. I wish tou find it as usual as I do :)

6. Film adaptation

This year,  the filming of the first book  has started, been produced by Lotus Entertainment and been directed by Scott Hicks

Then, it has started on February and it has been has myterious has these books , though the mysterious hasn't lasted a lot because the filming has actually finished. It finished this last week and since that moment, many facts about it has been realesed, like the place where the 'magic' has been done. First let start with the casting. In my opinion it is a good casting, better than others from anothers great books. So , in the paper of...
-Lucinda Prince : Addison Timlin
-Jeremy Irvine: Daniel Grigori
-Harrison Gilbertson: Cam Briel
-Daisy Head: Arriane Alter
-Hermione Corfield: Gabbe Givens
-Sianoa Smit McPhee: Molly Zane
-Malachi Kirby: Roland Sparks
-Lola Kirke : Penn 
-Joely Richardson: Mrs.Spohia( this is not sure yet)
This are our main-characters but we also have some others like Leo Surter as Trevor or Juliet Aubrey and Paul Slack as Luce's parents.

The film has been filmed in Budapest , Hungria and here we've got some interesting facts:

- The place that is going to be Swords and Cross is the castle of Schossberger ( the one of the photo of the left hand side)
-They are working a lot in this film to make everything look real , even the old and wonderful library:



-Addisson ( Luce ) has really cut her hair to look like Luce ( Luce wears her hair really short because of the fire that killed Trevor) and guess how has helped her doing this : Jeremy( Daniel)!

-Next , this is the firts photo that Jeremy , Addison and Harrison took themselves:
-And this is the first photo realesed in which they appear as Cam, Luce and Daniel!




7. A reader's opinion, mine

I REALLY, REALLY RECOMMEND THIS SAGA to everyone that is bored with the love beetween zombies or vampires and humans , and to everyone that want something completely new. For me , it has been something never read before , but I suppose that some of you will have read the saga Hush , hush that is similar to this. I didn't , so I'm going to make an opinion only about these books. 
I will say again that they are something unexpected , awesome and that I really think you should read because it really worths, I swear. Finally , I recommend to read it slowly , because it is very tricky and sometimes , confused, then if you are sure that you understand everything, you will enjoy most the best parts of the history. Now , it's your decision! Make a good choice!



8. Some videos that will encourage you to read them

Finally, I just want to encourage you to read these amazing books and it's because I have put here some mysterious book trailers. Enjoy them...


BUT WAIT, PLEASE...
Just, a last question for all of you that are finally interested in this fight beetween heaven or hell:
IF YOU WERE THERE, WHAT WILL YOU CHOOSE: HEAVEN , HELL OR LOVE?

Think about it because the Balance will tilt with your decission and Earth could be destroyed..
