About This Book
Luce está en grave peligro. Para protegerla, ángeles y demonios pactan una tregua que cambiará el transcurso de la historia.
 
Aunque ella lo ignore, Luce es una pieza clave en la lucha entre el bien y el mal. Por eso los Proscritos, ángeles caídos condenados al exilio, quieren secuestrarla, para extorsionar a ángeles y demonios a cambio de ganarse un nuevo acceso al cielo. Daniel y Cam son conscientes del peligro que corre Luce y pactan una tregua de dieciocho días para trabajar juntos y poder dar caza a los Proscritos. Durante este tiempo, los dos quieren mantener a Luce lejos del peligro y la esconden en la Escuela de la Costa, un exclusivo colegio en la que conviven humanos y nefilim, los hijos de humanos y ángeles caídos que la protegerán. Los profesores de los nefilim, Steven y Francesca, son un demonio y un ángel que están enamorados. Ellos enseñan a Luce que las sombras que la acechan, las Anunciadoras, pueden mostrarle imágenes de sus múltiples pasados. Gracias a ello, Luce pronto entenderá muchas de las cosas que Daniel no ha querido contarle y empezará a sospechar que su relación está motivada por intereses ocultos.

  • Teardrop

    Teardrop
    An epic saga of heart-stopping romance, devastating secrets, and dark magic . . . a world where everything you love can be washed away. The first book in the new series from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fallen series Never, ever cry. . . . Eureka Boudreaux's mother drilled that rule into her daughter years ago. But now her mother is gone, and everywhere Eureka goes he is there: Ander, the tall, pale blond boy who seems to know things he shouldn't, who tells Eureka she is in grave danger, who comes closer to making her cry than anyone has before. But Ander doesn't know Eureka's darkest secret: ever since her mother drowned in a freak accident, Eureka wishes she were dead, too. She has little left that she cares about, just her oldest friend, Brooks, and a strange inheritance—a locket, a letter, a mysterious stone, and an ancient book no one understands. The book contains a haunting tale about a girl who got her heart broken and cried an entire continent into the sea. Eureka is about to discover that the ancient tale is more than a story, that Ander might be telling the truth . . . and that her life has far darker undercurrents than she ever imagined.

    Fallen

    Fallen
    There's something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori. Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price's attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He's the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move. Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce--and goes out of his way to make that very clear--she can't let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her. Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, Fallen is a page turning thriller and the ultimate love story.

    Torment

    Torment
    Hell on earth. That’s what it’s like for Luce to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel. It took them an eternity to find one another, but now he has told her he must go away. Just long enough to hunt down the Outcasts—immortals who want to kill Luce. Daniel hides Luce at Shoreline, a school on the rocky California coast with unusually gifted students: Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans. At Shoreline, Luce learns what the Shadows are, and how she can use them as windows to her previous lives. Yet the more Luce learns, the more she suspects that Daniel hasn’t told her everything. He’s hiding something—something dangerous. What if Daniel’s version of the past isn’t actually true? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else?   The second novel in the addictive FALLEN series . . . where love never dies. From the Hardcover edition.

    Luce would die for Daniel. And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn’t need to be that way. . . . Luce is certain that something—or someone—in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime . . . going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel . . . and finally unlock the key to making their love last. Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history. Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames . . . forever. Sweeping across centuries, PASSION is the third novel in the unforgettably epic FALLEN series. From the Hardcover edition.
