What goodreads says:
Hell on earth.
That’s what it’s like for Luce to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel.
It took them an eternity to find one another, but now he has told her he must go away. Just long enough to hunt down the Outcasts—immortals who want to kill Luce. Daniel hides Luce at Shoreline, a school on the rocky California coast with unusually gifted students: Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans.
At Shoreline, Luce learns what the Shadows are, and how she can use them as windows to her previous lives. Yet the more Luce learns, the more she suspects that Daniel hasn’t told her everything. He’s hiding something—something dangerous.
What if Daniel’s version of the past isn’t actually true? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else?
My opinion:
Don't get me wrong I do like this series, but this book felt like a filler to me, we don't find out anything new and Luce is starting to really annoy me, I feel like she only knows how to complain and act like a spoiled child who always gets her way, and I felt like screaming at her to grow up!!
On the other hand we do get a little bit of information (hidden of course but it's there) and we meet more  fallen angels and "demons" (well technically there all fallen angels but some are more fallen than others?? That is a bit crazy but...) and the outcasts (the name says it all, their not accepted anywhere and truthfully their really creepy) and we find out a bit more about the announcers.
Other than that the most entertaining bit is when we meet Luce's new roommate, Shelby who is amazing (I seem to prefer the secondary characters in this series much more than the main) and amazing. Also we finally get to meet Callie (Luce's best friend) and Arriane comes back even if it's for a short period of time and I loved the thanksgiving dinner with everyone it was so funny^^
So I give it 2 out of 5 and I hope the last book is an improvement.
