Review: Fallen Desire by N.L. Echeverria

Fallen Desire (Fallen Desire, #1)Fallen Desire by N.L. Echeverria
Ann's rating: 3 of 5 stars 


This book fascinated me with its premise, angels and demons, good and evil, the eternal struggle. The heroine, Lindsay, is a seventeen year old who has been sheltered and protected. She is, in a word, naïve. She has recently moved to a small town, and is just making friends and starting to feel comfortable. Along comes Ethan who is mysterious and moody. There is an instant connection between them, but Ethan holds himself back.

Derrick, a friend she has made from school, is also attracted to her, and a love triangle is formed. But Lindsay isn’t who she thinks she is, not exactly. And neither are Derrick or Ethan. Lindsay has a role to fulfill and her destiny is wrapped up with the boys. The ending leaves you wanting more and looking actively for it.

However, the first third of the book was confusing, overwritten, convoluted and, well, boring. It was incredibly hard to get through and I was grateful when the story evened out and the actual story progressed. Once you get through the dross, the actual story is fresh and fun. If the first part of the book was cleared up, this would rival any great novel.

I would love to give this book four stars, but the beginning made me honestly give it a 3.

Fallen Desire (Fallen Desire #1)

by 
A dream was the first time I saw his face and even then my emotions and desire for him were uncontrollable. The moment we encountered one another my life changed. Without even a single touch, an unimaginable connection bound us together for eternity. That is until evil forces us apart.

He opens my eyes to a whole new world, a world filled with vibrant colors radiating off of every individual, giving me sight into who they are as well as showing me the unbelievable powers that I possess. I never would have thought that we would be in this situation. For me I have no other choice but to save him even if it brings upon my own death. I will give anything for the one I love and to protect him from eternal pain.

My soul and destiny were created before I even existed, and if this is the path that God planned for me, I will face it openly as I will not let him lose faith in mankind for I am the redeemer.

“The moment I met him my world changed, I don’t know those around me, I no longer know myself, but what I do know is that only I can save him.”

Lindsay, a teen girl from New York City, has recently moved to a small town outside Portland, Oregon. She meets Kim and Derrick who quickly become her best friends, but when she meets Ethan, who is extraordinarily mysterious and gorgeous, her whole world changes.

Avarie, a witch and old friend of Ethan’s, helps Lindsay discover her powers and releases her ability to see the auras of those around her. Struggling to learn her new abilities and fighting her desire for both Ethan and Derrick, Lindsay will learn the truth behind both of them as they are fallen angels and she is the soul of the redeemer created to save those fallen who have been consumed by evil only if they are worthy of redemption.
