Review: Rapture by Lauren Kate

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.
Review: (It took me a long time to read this book. I was reading Frankenstein for English, so getting to and through that book took FOREVER! So, i'm finally reviewing.)
The Good: Diving into this book I had a lot of expectations. Now were my expectation met? Sort of. I found the plot and all the twists okay. There were a few surprises in the book that shocked me, like at the end with Lucifer. I did like that Luce finally had her memory back and could help the others instead of standing by and whinning about everything.
The Bad: Despite the plot and its twists being okay, I thought it was slow and Kate was just trying to prolong Luce's curse reveal. I felt that bring in a new ememy----The Scale---wasn't necessary---that the Elders were enough. The characters were still the same; I was hoping some characters might change---like Daniel. I'm getting sick of the overprotective white knight character. And speaking of Daniel, the romance in this book sucks. Well, not sucks, just not original. Daniel's proud of Luce; they choose love over everything, blah blah blah.
The Curse: I don't know how I feel about Luce's curse. I'm happy taht I finally know what it is but I don't know if I like it. Who Luce actually is was somewhat preditable. I guess I wish the cause was different than what it was, but at the same time, it was a good surprise.
The Ending: Despire the happy ending, I didn't like it. It was the "they-lost-their-memory" part that I didn't like. I was hoping for something else.
The cover is okay. I kinda wish there was some more angelic features added to it.
You know, since this was the final book ,and we finally find out Luce's role is in the angelic world.
*I bought this book, I think.
Keep On Reading!
Up Next:
So far it's pretty good.
Not sure how I feel about Ethan's bad boy personality.
