Release date: December 8, 2009
Goodreads rating: 3.75 stars (out of 5)
My Rating: 5 stars (out of 5)


Reading the first chapter of this novel made me fall in love with it fast. The characters, the setting, and how purely beautiful and descriptive the words are. Words that are simple but will really touch your senses. Just beautiful, really beautiful. The story is mainly about the love story of a fallen angel and a mortal, but this story isn’t like the typical ‘fallen angel falls in love with a human’ story. It is a love story that goes way back to the beginning of time. As you go deeper into the story, you will uncover interesting and unpredictable twists. And as the mysteries unfold, you’ll find yourself hooked to the story and you’d hardly want to put the book down and stop reading.

There is also an Official Fallen Novels website, you can read here about the characters and things about them. But if you haven’t read the book yet, I don’t recommend you to do that because it might spoil the suspense when a new character is introduced in a chapter. I myself only read the character descriptions once I was done reading the second book. Read at your own risk! 😉

Hello and welcome to The Reading Pile!

Hey there! I created this blog to write about the books/stories/fanfictions that I have read or is currently reading. I am really passionate about reading and it’s really important to me because it helps me find inspirations for the novel/stories I am currently writing. First of all, NO I am not signed to any publisher or whatever, I’m only 16 and I only write stories/fanfictions because I love writing.

As a reader, sometimes when looking for new books to read I look up reviews of books to make sure that I will enjoy reading it or even get inspiration for it. Not that I’m saying that I’ll only read books/stories with good reviews. But it will contribute to weighing if I will go ahead and buy the book/read the story or not. So, this blog, I hope, will be updated with books I have read and stuff like that and also I will allow readers to post comments/their own reviews of the books and/or stories.

I hope you’ll like it!
