Must read for fallen lovers !!!

Some people will tell you that passion was the worst in the series, but I disagree. I loved this book. There is a juicy plot with one good twist. Passion will give you a deep look in to Daniels love for Luce, though a lot of detailed kissing there is no sex, for violence there are some Mayan sacrifices and some people get burned to death. But all together it is an awesomely, and passionate novel written by Lauren kate and recommended for all ages

Is It Any Good?

How is it that this time travel book goes nowhere? PASSION somehow manages it. The heroine stumbles back through history and that's it for hundreds of pages with no big realizations, no plot twists, no real plot. About halfway through she realizes Daniel really must love her a lot. Being soul mates and all, wasn't that already established? Die-hard fans may like a few moony moments. And sometimes it's fun to see where and when in the world Luce will end up next -- sure, a Mayan sacrifice will get your attention. Casual fans should skip to the last few pages where the series finale gets its big set-up. Now we're getting somewhere. Maybe.
