When I first started listening to this one, I thought it might drag a bit. But I found myself getting emotionally tied in with Daniel more in this book and I think that kept it from dragging for me. Passion gives a much better sense on just how tortured Daniel has been watching Luce die in front of him for 5000 years. You get a better grip on the pain, depression, determination, devotion, and love he has surrounding her. While the story was told from Luce's perspective, this book really was about Daniel in my opinion. I felt a little confused and not quite fulfilled at the ending, but it did leave a nice setup for book 4 (Rapture, out in 2012).
You can't grasp a love story that spans this far with just a simple explanation. You simply have to live it...with Passion.

I love where Passion (Fallen #3) begins. Torment (Fallen #2) left me hanging, so I was beyond anxious to see where this book - the story - took us. I was not disappointed.
If you are a fan of period pieces, you will adore Passion (Fallen #3). We are taken through past life after past life where Luce and Daniel meet, fall in love, and separate because of the curse plaguing them and their relationship.
There are moments that are tender where you fall deeper in love with the characters. There are other times that are so heart wrenching where you mourn for their fate. In the end, you are pulling for them and hoping they find each other for real and break the curse.
I liked the way Lauren Kate makes us see the characters from each of the previous books in a new light, making us question - yet again - their ulterior motives. As for me, I'm looking forward to Rapture (Fallen #4), which absolutely has the potential to be the best one yet.

I love these books so I was excited to listen to #3. So far so good...my only complaint is the narrator. Luce is supposed to be 16 years old and the narrator sounds like my grandmother. A younger voice would help the listener connect better with Luce's character. Sometimes I forget I am listening to a book about a teenager.
Love listening to Justine Eyre she brings the book alive. Great series and enjoyed this book it answered may questions and kept me wanting more all at the same time! Now on to book 4!
Here Lauren Kate changes things up and makes for a build finale on book four. The plot takes an turn that unfortunately might be a little cliche, but not so bad that it turns the reader away.
passion was definitely my favorite of the fallen series. the detail and history, all tied in extremely well into the story. the narrator is one of my favorites.
it was interesting kept my attention her voice takes some getting used to. she sounds like an old lady who is young trying to sound old. or like she's about to cry or just woke up. that Fleming in thbetween her throat and chest thing

Even though I feel like the story line is dragged out a bit, it's still really interesting and addicting to me. The bond between Luce and Daniel literally takes my breath away at some points. Lauren Kate has a wonderful, romantic writing style that ignites your heart... I'm telling you, you won't want to put this down because you just HAVE to know what is to come of these characters!!
