Torment (Fallen #2) by Lauren Kate

Torment (Fallen #2)'s greatness lies in the way the readers are gradually and gently introduced to Luce's abilities, her new world, and her and Daniel's history.  There's is one filled with love, passion, and grief. 

As with Fallen (Fallen #1), I'm constantly perplexed about which characters to trust and love and which ones I should distrust and hate.  I'm completely sympathetic to Luce's dilemmas when it comes to particular conflict.  At the same time, I enjoyed the level of suspense creating by the unknown because it makes this story more amazing and tender and tumultuous. 

For those looking for a young adult series that can be read by almost anyone, the Fallen series is for you.  It's filled with love and action.  It rises above other stories by proving great books don't have to be consumed with sex and profanity in order to get the world's attention.  For that, I applaud
