Book Review: The Fallen (Nine Lives of Chloe King)

A pretty good page-turner. I initially picked up this series because I enjoyed the short-lived ABC Family show of the same name, although the books don't totally follow the same storyline as the show.

I can't rate this very high though because I found the inordinate amount of sexual situations and profanity to be a bit unnerving in a YA book. The storyline really doesn't need this and it ends up feeling forced, like the author was trying to up the rating on the book (if books had ratings like tv shows and movies do).

Some of the relationships between characters also feel forced and awkward, unfortunately, which is another downside to an otherwise enjoyable book. The scenes with Chloe learning about her cat abilities are great; I just wish the rest of the book had felt so similarly free and unhindered.

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
