I found myself rather frustrated with this story. I was frustrated right along with the main character, Luce, which I suppose is how I was supposed to feel. But grr anyway. Why won’t anyone tell this girl what the hell is going on! Especially at the end when she needs to make a choice. How is she supposed to make a choice without all the information? She actually has very little information to go on. Ugh. There are so many things that we are left wondering about at the end of this book it’s ridiculous. Are we ever going to find out?

It’s also frustrating how Luce doesn’t ask many questions. I mean, she’s completely left in the dark about all of these seemingly important things, yet she doesn’t try nearly as hard as she should to get the answers. She does ask the odd question. But she’s surrounded by people who know more than her and just doesn’t try very hard to get answers from them. At least, not as hard as I would try. There were a lot of instances where I saw a perfect opportunity to ask, but she just let it go. Argh.

Having said all of that, I did enjoy the story. Even though it frustrated me. I felt so frustrated because I am genuinely curious to know what’s going on! The captivity factor wasn’t all the way there, but it was enough to keep my interest.

There are a few new characters in this book as well. Mainly Luce’s two newest friends, Miles and Shelby. I’m still not sure how I feel about Shelby. I’m not sure if she’s being completely honest with Luce, and something just seems off about her. Miles, however, I adore. He is a great new addition to the series. Miles is a caring friend, who right off the bat befriended Luce with no alterior motives. He was simply being kind, not caring that she was Luce Price like everyone else. I’m not sure about Daniel.

NEPHILIM!!!!!!! *insert girly scream here!* I love NEPHILIM! LIKE JACE!!! (Oh Cassandra Clare, what have you done to me?!?)

Okay, not that it is out of my system...

It has been a few weeks since I last read this book and I am finding it actually easier to write this since I have been able to process everything. Originally when I read the book I thought that it was amazing, better than the first and whatnot, but now that I look back at it I do notice questionable components and whatnot that are making me reconsider whether this book is actually as amazing as I first thought it to be...

Even before reading this book I knew that it was very likely that two boys would be fighting over Luce, and I just assumed that it would be Daniel, her boyfriend, and Cam, another fallen angel. When it wasn't Daniel and Cam fighting over Luce, but Daniel and Miles (a Nephilim), I am not going to lie, I was really quite disappointed. I really wanted to know more about Cam, however in this book he didn't play a big part, I mean, it's not like he didn't play a role at all- he did, but there really wasn't a point in the book that he got 100% of the readers attention, or if he did play a larger role, the reader didn't really learn anything different about him (we just got the same Cam we were introduced to in "Fallen", a charming bad boy). And Miles... What can I say about Miles? I mean, he is a nice guy (maybe too nice?) and all, but he just isn't Daniel or Cam :/ ...

What really bugged me about this story was... Well... Pretty much Luce overall. There was a reason that Daniel left her at Shoreline and it just really irked me that she wouldn't trust that he knew what he was doing.

By Nicola Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on Dec 8 2010
Format: Hardcover
Reason for Reading: next in the series.

First I'll mention that this is one of the most stunning covers I've ever seen. I love b/w photography and the design here is breathtaking. Now on to the book.

I can't really give a summary as not much happens in Torment. Luce is sent to an exclusive boarding school which just happens to have a special class for Nephilim and amongst the Nephilim Luce can be hidden from those who seek to destroy her. In the meantime Daniel and Cam have made an 18 day truce between the angels and demons to work together to kill those who seek to kill Luce. Thus the book takes place over those 18 days. There's a lot of Daniel and Cam getting the bad guys, the bad guys trying to get Luce, Luce getting herself into trouble by disregarding the rules she's been given and Luce learning more about the shadows, the Announcers, and how to control and use them.

There is a lot of "Twilight syndrome" going on here in Torment. Daniel has become demanding, giving Luce rules and instructions to follow without reasons, he orders her around and isn't telling her everything. He has become the dominant male species. While Luce, when she is away from and gets close to Daniel feels the overwhelming passion, desire, pull and love for him. Regardless, she is no Bella. Luce starts questioning Daniel's behaviour and doesn't take kindly to being pushed around even though she can't get past the inhuman passionate bond they share. What all this amounts to is a bunch of not much happening, making the book a slow read leading up to an anti-climax that ends in a "to be continued" manner with no resolution.

I did really enjoy the two new characters introduced that befriend Luce, both Nephilim.
