Synopsis:

The sky is dark with wings . . . .

Like sand in an hourglass, time is running out for Luce and Daniel. To stop Lucifer from erasing the past they must find the place where the angels fell to earth. Dark forces are after them, and Daniel doesn’t know if he can do this—live only to lose Luce again and again.

Yet together they will face an epic battle that will end with lifeless bodies . . . and angel dust. Great sacrifices are made. Hearts are destroyed. And suddenly Luce knows what must happen.

For she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel. The curse they’ve borne has always and only been about her—and the love she cast aside. The choice she makes now will be the only one that truly matters.

In the fight for Luce, who will win?

The astonishing conclusion to the FALLEN series. Heaven can’t wait any longer.

PURCHASE THE BOOK HERE:

What lead me to this series is the synopsis where Lucinda dies and reincarnates every after 17 years just to be with Daniel. It is interesting and extraordinary for me. Then add that captivating cover of course. When I finished Fallen, Torment and Passion, all I could ever think of is fast-forward time so I could read and know the ending of the series. And after several months of waiting, here I am, staring at my book and making the review.

I just couldn't believe how Lauren provided us with such amazing ending to the series that something quite unexpected. I thought that Rapture is just the perfect way to make Luce and Daniel be together. Aside from that, Lauren acknowledged her Filipino fans which I think is a very nice deed from an author. (Am so proud!)

You see, the first time I cried over a character's death was during Sirius Black's in Harry Potter and Rapture's several characters would be the second. Yes, a lot of great characters have died and again, you would never expect who those characters were. Its also answered all my parked questions since Fallen and clearly, this last one made the whole series extra-spectacular. One of my favorite parts is when Lucinda remembered that there are still Outcasts left and she spoke their names. There's this pride and respect not only for Lucinda but the way Lauren managed to give importance to all the characters equally. Friendship, trust and respect are all portrayed in such a way that you would never look at relationships ordinarily like you used to. (Cam and Daniel stayed together so as Roland, Annabelle, Shelby, Miles, Gabbe, Molly and Arriane. They've done so much because they believed in each other no matter what their differences are). I also would like to point the parts where the curse was thoroughly explained, how important that we learn from the lessons of the past, that there's no other things greater than God and love would really find its way to you.

Among all the books in the series, Fallen and Rapture are my favorites. Lauren started a story that is mind blowing and ended it with so much compassion. It is a truly endearing story that any angels would love to read over and over.

"The past is important for all the information and wisdom it holds. But you can get lost in it. You've got to learn to keep the knowledge of the past with you as you pursue the present."
"There is always some regret when we accept that love has moved away from us."
