Seventeen-Year-Old Luce is a new student at Sword & Cross, an unwelcoming boarding/reform school in Savannah, Georgia. Luce’s boyfriend died under suspicious circumstances, and now she carries the guilt over his death with her as she navigates the unfriendly halls at Sword & Cross, WHERE every student seems to have an unpleasant—even evil—history.It’s only when she sees Daniel, a gorgeous fellow student, that Luce feels there’s a reason to be here—though she doesn’t know what it is. And Daniel’s frosty cold demeanor toward her? It’s really a protective device that he’s used again . . . and again. For Daniel is a fallen angel, doomed to fall in love with the same girl every 17 years . . . and watch her die. And Luce is a fellow immortal, cursed to be reincarnated again and again as a mortal girl who has no idea of who she really is.From the Hardcover edition.

This story is romantic. Any book where pastlife lovers are pulled together in every life only to be ri...
I was torn between 2-3 because it was okay but it was partly to blame for a horrible slump- it took me nearly a month to read. For some reason I found it really hard to really get into the world this book was set, I found it hard to empathize with the characters I think this was mainly as it was wri...
