Waiting on Wednesday (7) Fallen by Lauren Kate

This weeks pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" is:

By: Lauren Kate
Publication Date: December 8th 2009 (US) & December 31st 2009 (UK)

About Fallen-

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.

I did find a very interesting article at feybound.com regarding this book. This will be a new series with the first four titles already bought by Random House! The article states-

The series, said to feature “angels and menacing demons” and appeal to fans to Stephanie Meyer, features 16-year-old Lucinda who falls in love with a gorgeous boy at her reform school, only to discover he is a fallen angel, destined neither to ascend to heaven or descend to hell. RCHB publisher Annie Heaton said it was “a delicious mix of temptation, impossible love and the supernatural,” promising that no teenage girl will be able to resist the tormented hero.

**UPDATE*** The wonderful Lenore was so kind as to tell me where to find a cover, so I've added it to this post. Kudos to Adele at Persnickety Snark for tracking it down!

Waiting on Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
