Music Monday #12


Music Monday is a weekly blog posting on do here on my blog so I can change up the reviews and share some of my music with whoever is reading my blog. Hope you enjoy!!!


Rapture (Fallen #4) by Lauren Kate
Synopsis:
 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?

The astonishing conclusion to the FALLEN series. Heaven can’t wait any longer.

Music:
For the book Rapture (Fallen #4) by Lauren Kate I chose the song "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri. I know this song was originally for the Twilight movie, however, I felt this song fit the Fallen series better. Since first of all Edward was only in his hundreds, Daniel and Luce have been through multiple lifetimes over a 7 thousand years period, it seemed a better fit, don't you think? Haven't heard the song or want the lyrics? Follow the links: A Thousand Years Lyrics  A Thousand Years Video. The video I chose is the official lyrics video, not the one for the movie. I didn't want Edward and Bella ruining the flow so that's why I chose the lyrics video instead.

Review:
Reading the final book in a series is never easy for a couple reasons. The ending a lot of times can make it or break it for the entire series. I was a tad reluctant to start reading Rapture considering my opinion of the other 3.5 books in the series, which wasn't that great. As well as, wondering if Rapture was going to end in a completely cliche way.

In the previous book Passion when Luce went through the announcers to see into her past she went through some major psychological changes. She was trying to figure out who she was, what the curse was, and how the curse worked. The way she figured that out was by living through some of her past lives. In Rapture however, readers will be able to tell just how much Luce has grown throughout the books. She's not trying to figure out what and who Daniel is to her, like in Fallen. Then in Torment when she goes to a school and finds out just how much she doesn't know about herself, their past, or their future. During Passion she goes through her past and tries to gouge if her and Daniel were truly meant to be. Rapture contains no more self doubting, no more doubt at all about how much Daniel and Luce are made for each other, and no doubting that while she may not know what her part is during the final days, she knows that with her love she can conjure all. Although Luce went through major character changes throughout all of the books, it's extremely prominent in this book just how much she's grown as a character. She's a strong female character that many of us YA readers enjoy reading about.

There are a lot more swoon worthy moments in this story than others. Daniel and Luce have finally gotten over the uncertainty and during many parts during the book, they simply enjoy their time together. Being fully together for the first time with Luce finally realizing and knowing who she is after 7 thousand years together I think is one of the best parts of this story. And their love for one another only grows as the story goes on, if you can believe that.

Most of the main characters and some minor one's make appearances in this final book. As well as getting to meet some new characters. Even Annabelle, who if you've read Fallen in Love (Fallen #3.5) you'll know exactly who that is.

Rapture has many moments of just complete surprise. I have to say during most of Rapture I would stare at the words in surprise. So many aspects about this book were a surprise such as the extent of the curse, if Daniel was truly Luce's first and true love, what created the fall, and who Luce is. Rapture also contains all different kinds of new evils, that lay in waiting with every turn of the page. Rapture was nothing like I expected and I believe that's what made this book so amazing. I mean who wants to read a book where you're just going through and aren't surprised by anything that's happening at all? Hopefully nobody, because that is so completely boring.

Lauren Kate's Rapture will keep you guessing until the final pages, and even after. Luce and Daniels story is a story that will make anyone believe that true love can conjure anything, even Heaven and Hells wrath.

Oh and huge side note. I love all the covers in this series. The covers are honestly what drew me to start reading the series. I love the dresses, the models posses, and just everything. So amazing. If you haven't picked up a copy of this amazing series yet, I suggest you do so. 8)

"Just getting to first base seems to be a problem for you two," Cam couldn't resist saying."
