Review of Passion by Lauren Kate

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.

This, I think was my favorite one of the series so far!!  This book, you are travelling with both Luce and Daniel through time.  You get to experience their love from both of their POV's, back to the beginning.  I loved seeing Luce discover why their love was the way it was, and what things happen when they do.  My favorite time period was 18th Century England, but that's always been my favorite time period.  I love her character, I love what she does to get back to Daniel.  I just loved it!

You also follow Daniel who is chasing her, and can't seem to get to the same place at the same time.  He's always just a little too late to get to her.  You feel his frustration at having just missed her, and communicating with the previous Daniel when he feels so desolate at losing her to fire yet again.  

One thing that threw me totally was the character Bill.  I loved him!  Then I find out, he's not really the good guy he's perceived to be!  I won't ruin it for you guys, you have to read the book to find out who he really is!!  

Through out time, Luce tries to reason with Daniel, find out why this is happening.  She even joins with her previous selves to find out how to stop it.  There was one version of Luce that I didn't like.  One that just so against who Luce was, that it surprising to see her that way.  

This book's ending was a little bit anticlimactic, as it's taking you into the fourth book, but it explains why there is a curse on Daniel and Luce, and who was responsible for it.  My favorite saying in the book is that Luce and Daniel's souls will always find each other.  I thought that was such a beautiful line, just because to have a love that strong is enviable.  I would love to have a love like that... 

I think that's the romantic in me talking though... I really am a hopeless romantic.
