What makes your heart race a little faster? Just in time for Valentine's Day, it's FALLEN IN LOVE, four wholly original new stories collected in a new novel set in the Middle Ages by Lauren Kate. FALLEN IN LOVE gives fans the much-talked about but never-revealed stories of FALLEN characters as they intertwine with the epic love story of Luce and Daniel.
The stories include: Love Where You Least Expect It: The Valentine of Shelby and Miles , Love Lessons: The Valentine of Roland; Burning Love: The Valentine of Arriane; and Endless Love: The Valentine of Daniel and Lucinda.
This one is so SO close now, and I'm really excited. One of the most interesting aspects of the Fallen series is its secondary characters (Cam! Cam! TEAM CAM!), so I'm really anticipating a chance to get to know them better. For obvious reasons, they've taken second place to Daniel and Luce in the past, and I'm relishing a chance to learn their histories :)
The February Valentines Event being run by the fabulous Australian bloggers Lisa and (the diabolical) Brodie have put this series back on my radar in a massive way, because a certain fallen angel and badass demon just might be showing in a love-triangle debate I am SERIOUSLY excited for. Wait... you're not signed up to defend your fave book boyfriend yet? AND ADRIAN AND DIMKA ARE STILL WAITING FOR A DEFENDER? What, precisely, are you waiting for? Go! Go!
