Review of Rapture by Lauren Kate

by - May 01, 2012

The sky is dark with wings...

Like sand in an hourglass, time is running out for Luce and Daniel. To stop Lucifer from erasing the past they must find the place where the angels fell to earth. Dark forces are after them, and Daniel doesn’t know if he can do this - live only to lose Luce again and again.

Yet together they will face an epic battle that will end with lifeless bodies... and angel dust. Great sacrifices are made. Hearts are destroyed. And suddenly Luce knows what must happen.

For she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel. The curse they’ve borne has always and only been about her - and the love she cast aside. The choice she makes now will be the only one that truly matters.

In the fight for Luce, who will win?

If I had one word to describe Rapture, I'd choose addicting. At least, that's what I thought at 3am this morning when I finally went to bed after finishing this amazing book and again when I woke with a headache that I presume to be similar to a hangover. It was totally worth it though, as Rapture is a thrilling conclusion to the series and I loved it!

Onto the subject that everyone's talking about Goodreads, 'For she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel', one simple sentence that made me and everyone else go WHAT? She's meant to be with Daniel! Unlike a sentence in the Torment blurb with wasn't actually covered in the book, this sentence is a big part of the book and really helps explain the story and why Luce and Daniel have been going through what they've... been going through... all I'll say is that I really enjoyed it!

Daniel is his usual irritating self. I'm not his biggest fan, I find that Cam has more personality. His being the creepy Dad again with lots of 'Well done' and 'You're so brave', that set my teeth on edge. She's not a china doll, you know? She's stronger than him. Just because you've got big ass wings don't make you special. Luce had her irritating moments too. Let's just say that she pondered as deeply and philosophically about 'their love' as a 17 year old girl could do and it got a bit repetative.

Overlooking the irritations though, I thought the story was wrapped up amaizngly well and really enjoyed the treasure hunt they had going on which introduced a new character and we got to know some old ones better too! We were also introduced to the Scale (I don't think they've been around before), who like to smother people. Literally...

  1. Yes I like Cam better than Daniel too!

  2. I'm glad to hear that you found this book addicting and were happy with the conclusion to this series! I'm looking forward to reading it, though am wondering how much I'll enjoy it. This has been a totally addicting guilty pleasure series for me. I love the books while I'm reading them, but then when I think about them all's I do is poke holes. Nice review!

  3. I am so jealous that you've already read Rapture! Passion's ending was literally painful. I like Cam's personality more than Daniel's but Daniel will always be the best choice for Luce. On another note, I can't believe you only have 76 followers! Your blog is really pretty and should deserve more followers. I've followed you :)

    1. Thank you for the follow! As for the followers, I did have 360 odd but I had to move my blog to a different blogger account in January as no matter what I did, I couldn't get the comment box to appear. I even reset the HTML!
