Goodreads Synopsis:

Luce would die for Daniel.

And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn't need to be that way....

Luce is certain that something - or someone - in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of thislifetime...going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel...and finally unlock the key to making their love last.

Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history. Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames...forever.

Sweeping across centuries, PASSION is the third novel in the unforgettably epic FALLEN series.

My Review:

            Luce has stepped into an Announcer, leaving her home, family, and Daniel behind, in order to figure out what happened long ago and somehow break the curse. From Moscow to Milan, she travelled alone trying to figure out what went wrong in the beginning of time. She had no idea Daniel was following her, always one step behind. Daniel was trying to catch up to Luce in order to explain to her in his way rather than Luce finding out on her own.
            Along the way Luce met her past selves, constantly lusted after the past Daniels and acted very stupid. What annoyed me most about this book was the numerous past selves that Luce met. It was so confusing trying to figure out what era she was in. Whether it was Tibet, England, Israel, Itza, or where ever the same thing happened in all of the places. Luce lusted after Daniel, but she was never able to figure out why they were cursed.
            Luce also met the other angels, Cam, Gabe, Arriane, Roland, and Molly who played major roles in Luce and Daniels life. What Luce couldn't figure out was why had she survived in the present when all of her past lives died at a very young age. She witnessed pain, hurt, love, destruction and loss. I think this idea of Luce finding out about her past selves was interesting, but the execution fell short. I found myself bored and skipping pages at numerous occasions and I just wasn't convinced about the love between Daniel and Luce. I would have liked to see them spend more time together and get to know each other before declaring their love for each other.
            Overall, an interesting concept, but not very well executed. Even though I didn't like most of this book and it was confusing, I will be reading the final book just to see what happens to their love story. Even if the story is poorly written, at heart, I'll always be a sucker for a love story.
