Fallen by Lauren Kate
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
As far as stories about angels go, this ain't Cassie Clare. As far as Southern Gothics go, this ain't the Caster Chronicles. As far as YA books go, this one overdoes it a bit with the too-perfect characters (although it does make you feel bad for some of them - such as Daniel on Parents Day - and it does make you love some of them - I'm looking at "yours psychotically," Arianne!)
But even though it does take its sweet time to get going, this first installment does close out with a pretty satisfying BANG. I did see part of the twist coming, but those parts I didn't...hoo boy.
