We finally got to see the curse in action, the deaths of Luce and Daniel's reaction in each and every one of them. Kind of heartbreaking, knowing that the love of his life died because of him, even more torture knowing that he had to wait 17 years to get to see her again. Slowed at times, but other than that the series actually picked up.
Yes, I've heard the bad reviews, but I quite liked the first two books, Fallen and Torment, and thought I'd enjoy this one as well. Sadly, it just didn't do it for me.
First of all, the whole story just kind of left me a little muddled and confused. It wasn't one of those stories where you're on the edge of your seat wondering what loop it's going to throw you through next. It was just a bit confusing and didn't seem fully thought out. Luce kept "realizing" things that I thought I already had figured out or I simply didn't understand at all even after she "explained" what she learned.
Luce. Luce, Luce, Luce. She drove me absolutely nuts! She was selfish and idiotic. She kept meddling with her past lives for her own benefit never once bothering to think she was intruding. She just HAD search through her past live's not willing to just accept Daniel's love. Every time she sees Daniel in a past life, though, she loses her head like a sex-starved teenage idiot. It's was beyond annoying.
The one thing I really like about Passion as compared to the other two was Daniel's POV. We got much more of it than the meager glimpses we've seen before. It was almost every other chapter this time. I liked to see what was happening from his end of things as opposed to everything being all about Luce.
Final thoughts: If you've read the other two in the series, then this one might be worth picking up since it's necessary if you plan on finishing the series. If you've never read the series, I definitely wouldn't recommend it simply because Passion doesn't have much going for it.
Anyway I barrowed a copy from my friend and I wanted to read Passion before I got my copy of Rapture. :)
Luce travels through time to learn more about her past and Daniels. The descriptions of the various places and times Lucinda visits are vivid and very detailed! Ive always wanted to travel the world and this book was sort of like that!
I really liked how the pov switched between Luce and Daniel; very nice!
