The Review: I've been following Lauren Kate’s books ever since I first read Fallen way back in 2009. I read it straight after discovering Twilight and the whole of paranormal romance world, so for me now, it’s a really bittersweet moment because I’m very sad it’s over but I’m so pleased it ended on such a high note.
Rapture is just pure amazing! From start to finish Lauren Kate takes us on a whirlwind journey following the characters that we’ve all fallen in love with and she doesn’t stop batting out shocking and exciting revelations, until the very last page. Rapture was far from predictable and Lauren Kate took the story to a whole new level. All of the questions I found myself asking through-out this series, are now answered and let me tell you, you will NOT be disappointed. If anything, I’m still sitting her nearly a month later just thinking “wow, I did not expect that” – Seriously, it’s that good.
What I loved about this book was there was so much more Daniel and Luce time. I fell in love with their relationship from the start, so I was always rooting for them. Daniel becomes even more swoon-worthy and I loved how their relationship grew too. What I didn’t expect was the shocking story that involved Lucifer. Boy oh boy, will you be surprised but you will be blown away also because it was the last thing I ever expected.
The ending of the book was done so perfectly well that all my favourite characters got the ending they all deserved. I just adored Daniel and Luce’s ending and Lauren did the finial touches brilliantly. My only major problem was Cam; I don’t think his ending was a good as the others. It kind of felt left open – maybe in the hopes that Cam could have his own book because that’s how it felt, but I guess we’ll see.
All in all, Rapture was the perfect ending to a fantastic series and I honestly will be sad to see it go. Full of romance, danger, hope and love – it’s not one to miss!
A huge thank you to Double Day for giving me the opportunity to review
