Book Review: Rapture by Lauren Kate

Finished reading Rapture by Lauren Kate (448 pages). It's a fantasy novel, the concluding part of international bestsellers Fallen, Torment and Passion series.

The back cover says:

The sky is dark with wings...

And time is running out for Luce and Daniel.

In order to stop Lucifer from erasing the past, they must find the place where the Fall began. Only Luce can break the curse, and it is her choice alone that will decide all of their fates.

But as dark forces gather, great sacrifices will have to be made in this final, epic struggle...

In the fight for Luce, and for love, who will win?

Well, it's my first book by Lauren Kate and I liked the writing style but perhaps I made a wrong choice as it's the concluding part of Fallen series and I haven't read the previous ones. Also some characters have similar names which makes the read confusing.

But I really liked the prologue. It's beautifully written and it reflects the deep feelings of Daniel for Lucinda and how he wants to be with her always. Each chapter has interesting names like 'Starshot in the dust', 'A thousand kisses deep', 'Catch a falling star', The stars in their eyes (Epilogue)... The book cover is very captivating.

It reminded me of "Lost Girl" by Sangu Mandanna. It could be an interesting & thrilling read for those who like reading fantasy fiction and who have read the previous books of this series!!

I received this book from Random House India (Random Reads) for an honest review. Thanks!
