My review of Book 1: FallenMy review of Book 2: Torment Spoilers and all that but read on anyway. If there were any hopes the third instalment would give us something, or even something to praise, then they have been cruelly dashed with the nonsense I read through. The book takes off from the end … Continue reading Book Review: Passion by Lauren Kate
