What if the person you were meant to be with could never be yours?

17-year-old Lucinda falls in love with a gorgeous, intelligent boy, Daniel, at her new school, the grim, foreboding Sword and Cross . . . only to find out that Daniel is a fallen angel, and that they have spent lifetimes finding and losing one another as good and evil forces plot to keep them apart.

Get ready to fall...

One of the biggest selling Young Adult novels of 2009 now available in paperback and featuring the first chapter of Torment, the next in the series releasing October 2010


This thriller is dark and romantic, an absolute blinder of a book. Every teenage girl (and her mum) is going to want to read it.


Imaginative and very sexy


I have one word for you: WOW! This book is absolutely amazing! I cannot wait to read the next book in this series, Torment. Seriously, Fallen is unbelievably good, and I may just have to read it again soon. You need this book!

Once Upon a Bookcase

I saw the cover, and true book lust began...seductive and more than a little scary...The sexual tension...drips off the pages...There are more twists and turns in the book than a dance sequence...Fallen is an amazing start to a series and a refreshing change to the genre.

Carla, Chicklish

This is a gothic love story featuring fallen angels and forbidden love (a winning formula) that will thrill and delight in equal measure.

Fantasy Book Review

I really enjoyed it and couldn't put it down all weekend!

Ashley Robbins, Assistant Buyer, Children's Fiction, WHS

Bursting with emotion, this is a roller coaster story of unbridled and dangerous desires.

Love Reading

I couldn't put it down...I highly recommend this book.

Narratively Speaking

Twilight fans will love this word-of-mouth hit.

Reading Zone

There is sometimes awesomeness behind the covers. And Fallen is one such book. And the cover is deliciously gothic... The book has an air of mystery to it, and there are twists and turns everywhere. It certainly keeps you guessing... Move over, Hush, Hush, for there is more originality and awesomeness here.

Books and the Universe

full of unexpected twists, with romance, intrigue and even sacres.

An exciting climax and an intriguing ending.
