    I was expecting it since I finished reading Fallen and Tormenti….I look forward for it!

  6. Well I’m a huge fan of the saga, i’m dying to have Passion in my heads and read it ASAP. And about the music, since I’m a Spanish speak I have found this lovely and amazing song that feels totaly like Daniel and Luce!!!! in spanish is named “Mas de mil aΓ±os” = “More than a thousand years” is perfect for the story. }

    Hope you like it, i don’t have the english translation but from the very melody you can feel Daniel in it, thank you for sharing, love the books so much.


  7. Hey, everybody!:] I did an imaginary cover of “Rapture”, the 4th book. The article is in romanian, but if you like the cover(last picture), you can tell us:].

  10. Ive just finished reading passion, absolutely loved it, its now going to be painful to wait for the next one!! :D:D

  11. I am so annoyed that i have to wait until next month to get my hands on this book! South Africa needs to catch up in the world. I have been waiting for Passion since the beginning of the year!

    Absolutely wonderful writing, Lauren. These books hold me hostage until they are finished.

  12. OMG! Passion was great! I LOVED the scenes the emotion, the characters, and looking at the diffrent points of views of BOTH daniel, and Luce. FOR ONCE HIstroy didn’t seem as boring to me as usual! And Cam…BIG SCHOCKER there…lol πŸ™‚ I’m 10x Hyped up for Rapture!

  13. When I think of music for the Fallen saga I always think of the song “Cosmic Love” by Florence + The Machine. Also a song called “Arise” by Flyleaf.

  14. hi lauren thank you for coming to miami . loved your party and i love my blood red nails , thanks for the party favor. i think beyond the sea by: celtic women is the perfect song for luce. i hope you will take the time to look it up and listen to it i know you will love it. if any one ever wants to talk angels

  15. It would be great hear “Like you” (Evanescence) playing in the scene that Luce goes to the cemetery Vizit the grave of his friend Penn.
    is a great song…

  16. I seriously cant wait for Passion to come out!!!! I actually read Torment before Fallen on accident lol πŸ˜€

  17. I seriously cant wait for Passion to come out!!!! I actually read Torment before Fallen on accident lol haha πŸ˜€

  18. Songs that I actually listened to whilst reading Fallen & Torment and whenever I listen to them, It reminds me of them. Also when I was reading it I thought the songs went well with what I was reading, it was great. The songs were:
    I’m Still Breathing – Katy Perry
    Song to the Siren – This Mortal Coil (this is my favourite song EVER!)
    Pirouette – Lisa Mitchell
    & I Think Asleep by Emily Browning would go well too. I will definitely listen to it when I read Passion. I Can’t wait! πŸ™‚

  19. hey just want to say i absolutely love all three books and cant wait for Rapture you are an amazing writer and hope one day you may visit the little adelaide in australia i think the song Never Alone by ladyantebellum is perfect for the book Passion thank you so much for your books!!!

  20. i must admit i am a fan of the twilight series but the fallen series tops that by a million the romance passion and emotion throughout these books makes me want to keep reading more and more. i instantly became a fan of this series. #teamdaniel

  21. Lauren, I did not expect Passion to be as brilliant, addicting, and passionate as it was. Sometimes the third book in a series can be a let down, because it just doesn’t compare to the first two. I was nervous when I started reading. I read books extremely fast and once it became clear that this was going to be the best book in the series, I knew that I had to pace myself and milk it! Especially since Rapture won’t be out for awhile (I am dying inside waiting!). I drew it out two days. Which I’m glad I did, because it would have taken me an hour or two to devour it.

    Anyways, I just wanted to tell you that ‘Passion’ was the perfect title for this novel. The scenes of Luce dying and Daniel being left without her was riveting and heartbreaking. I felt every emotion. I’ve never read a book where the main character leaps back through time to see her past lives and all that she’s been and done. I like that sometimes she was a princess and others she was just a lowly girl. She wasn’t just royalty in each life. It made it seem more realistic. (Not that jumping through Announcers back in time is realistic though, ha-ha.)

    By far, Passion is my favorite. I think it just might stay that way, because of the undying, unconditional love that developed throughout each life. I was so astonished to see just how devoted Daniel’s love was. I’m still a bit lost as to where Cam falls into place. It’s obvious that he likes/loves Luce, too. But it never mentioned how or if he really does. I mean, I know he was in love with that girl in Israel and she rejected him because he couldn’t get married in the church. But, I guess that will be revealed in Rapture. I’m eager to see how the great Fall takes place and if the ‘gang’ (angels, demons, Nephilim, humans) will get there and ‘save the day’.

  22. one of the songs i listened to whilst reading fallen and torment was
    all i wanted-paramore

  23. just got the books today and so far i am in love u are an inspirational author and i think ure creativity can bring u somewhere i was wondering do u think there can be a movie and how good do u think its going to be. i have read lj smiths book vampire diaries and night world and they were at the top of my list as best series i have ever read but now ure books are the best ui stopped reading night world because i liked ure books so much. i am on torment right now and so far loving it cant wait to see what u come up wth next

  24. here is a great song for the scene of when Daniel flies her toward shoreline school hope u like it

  25. I’m half way through Passion, and am just so in love with the way you’ve written this third story. Love the format, love the stories and the history. I keep thinking that “Long and Winding Road” (the Beatles) is a great song that represents Passion. No matter how many histories and eras Luce and Daniel live through, the long and winding road always leads back to each other.

    That’s my two-cents!

  26. my favorite songs are beaches and marvelous things. and the book is ssoooooooooooo awesome!!! πŸ˜€ im on the sixth chapter(because of school reading) and it’s already sooooo good!! and i can’t wait til you post up when disney is doing casting calls for your movies!!

  27. I love your books and your Passion Play List. I have a song that reminds me of all three books… Daisy by Brand New

  28. Just love the books so much. Have read all 3 twice now. While reading Fallen for the second time I heard the song EVEN WHEN IM SLEEPING by LEONARDOS BRIDE and its just reminded me so much about how Luce always felt whenever she was apart from Daniel. She was dreaming of him before she even “met” him that first day in “this” life

  29. i think the songs Far Longer Than Forever (The Swan Princess) and If I Never Knew You (Pocahontas) really suits them both. But I like the songs too. πŸ˜€

  30. OMG!! When I was reading the books I read each of them in one night!! They were just so good I couldn’t put them down for a single minute. I don’t really have a song that reminds me of the fallen series. The messages in them are just so unique that they can’t be made into anything other than themselves. But if I had to chose an artist, it would be the slow songs by Lady Gaga and maybe T- Swift. Paramore also have some songs that sometimes make me crave to read the books again after i’ve read them maybe 3 times each. No names of songs come to mind right now but maybe give me a couple of weeks and I’ll find something πŸ™‚

  31. Hi I think I’m going to faint. I’ve alway loved fallen I was nine and in grade three or four when first book came out and my mother [shes great and is really cool] didn’t allow me to read it because I was, bad for kids my age. So after I proved that I can read and cope with it, I got her to by me books very time we went to kmart. One day she was taking me home from school and throw a plastic bag at me, when I looked in the bag I almost hyphenated. It was the book I wanted to like three years. I love the Fallen series but I’ve read somemany books but Fallen cames out on top. I love listening to music and have a weird taste but I think some songs like:
    Swing life way – rise againest
    Savior – rise agianest
    Kids in love – mayday parade
    Bring me to life – Evanescence
    Crush, Crush, Crush – Paramore
    Fences – Paramore
    brick by boring brick
    I think these would go great with the story each has a special element in it.

  32. Sorry tipe-o it was bad for kids my age sorry I love fallen and did I mansion I’m from Australia and I love tim tams, leamingtons, vegemite, BBQ’s and Milo[it;s like hot chocolate but with Bali suger.] by the way kangaroo tastes great : – }

  33. I love Fallen, Torment, and Passion. and i truly am inspired by the story of Luce and Daniel. it reminds me so much of the way i feel about my Fiance. another song however, that influenced me while reading Passion, was Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri, along with Arms by Christina Perri. they strike me as though she was almost singing from Luce’s point of view of her Relationship with Daniel. i just thought i would put this out in the universe πŸ™‚

  34. Inexplicably, Chausson’s Op.21 – Sicilienne reminds me of Luce and Daniel – I imagine them dancing to it πŸ™‚ (I recommend the version performed by Joshua Bell)

  35. Hey Lauren Kate,
    Here are some songs I thought were perfect for your books. I hope you like them.:)
    I’ll Run- The Cab
    I Caught Myself- Paramore
    Take My Hand- The Cab
    Mercy- One Republic
    Breakeven- The Script
    What Do You Want from Me- Adam Lambert

  36. The acoustic version of flyleaf’s “all around me” is perfect for the whole series, everyone has to hear it , its perfect! I looooove this series, the best books ever.

  37. Passion Playlist – Lauren Kate Books I was recommended this blog by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my problem. You’re wonderful! Thanks! your article about Passion Playlist – Lauren Kate Books Best Regards Yoder Lisa
