Fallen Book Discussion (Week 10)

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

Hey, people from Earth and other people who are not from here, for the next week, we will be giving you the awesomeness that is Fallen by Lauren Kate.  Be sure to show up, because we are giving away some great stuff, check it out HERE.  Just a BIG side note, I am changing the structure of these posts from here on out.  Due to life happening: finals week is next week and everyone is going to be going back to their own houses, therefore I am switching up things a bit.  I hope you don't mind.  I will still be asking two questions, but for each chapter now.  Be sure to follow the discussion and don’t be scared to join in on our discussion/ questions.  Those who entered the contest will receive extra entries for answering a question.  Every week on Tuesday, we will discuss two chapters of the book, and ask you two questions for each chapter about what we have all read.  Look for our answers in the comments as well.  If you missed a post and want to check out the schedule, go HERE.  Come and join us in our quest of discussing FALLEN.

Chapter 18: The Buried War

When all three reached the bottom of the cemetery, they all see a shadow above them, and Luce realizes that they (Penn and Mrs. Sophia) shouldn’t be there, but they refuse to leave.  Luce then sees Daniel on the mausoleum, goes to him, and tells him she knows what he is and about how she knows their love is true.  Daniel tells her the shadows are not her fault, and quickly debriefs her on the shadows’ true nature and about the “big” battle about to occur.  Enter my favorite character: Cam J  He comes in basically mocking Luce and Daniel’s lovey-dovey moment, and threatens to kill Luce.  Cam also mentions that when Luce dies, this will be the ending of her cycle of reincarnations because something was…off about this current life she was in.  Arriane and Gabbe show up, and they start going on about how something changed in this life of Luce that may cause her life cycles to end…FOREVER!!!  Arriane says that if they lose the battle, the apocalypse will occur, but if they win… no one knows.  The battle is about to begin!  Mrs. Sophia offers to take her to a secure area.  As they were running away, Penn’s shoulder is then struck by something.  As they get closer to the ‘chamber’ Mrs. Sophia had in mind, Luce convinces her to put Penn down and wait for help.  Luce knows Penn needs help, and tells Penn that she is going to be okay…but Mrs. Sophia says otherwise.  Then, Mrs. Sophia stabs Penn in the throat with a dagger.  Luce then knows why Mrs. Sophia boarded up the doors and windows, so that Luce could not escape.  Climax!!!

Think about it!
1. From the moment Mrs. Sophia stabs Penn, Luce knows she made a mistake trusting this woman.  Why did Mrs. Sophia change sides? Or was she never on their side to begin with?
2. If you had to pick a side in this battle, who would you fight for: Daniel or Cam? Why?

Chapter 19: Out of Sight

So, Mrs. Sophia gets Luce into the secret hideaway area, and prepares her…well….like a sacrifice.  Before Mrs. Sophia kills her, Luce learns some important information like, how Luce and Daniel have to do with the fate of the world, and how Luce won’t be reincarnated because her parents didn’t baptize her (making her non-religious), unlike her previous lives.  Just as Mrs. Sophia is trying to kill her, Daniel and the other “good guys” swoop in and save the day!!!   Anyway, Mrs. Sophia gets away fast enough so the others can’t keep up with her, but they vow to find her and exterminate her.  Luce sees Daniel’s wings (for real), and fawns over them and Daniel.  Luce finds out who all the fallen angels are (both good and bad), and finds out no one was victorious in the battle (since none of them can kill each other).  When Luce wants to bury Penn, Daniel agrees to do it for her; Luce finds out that she will have to find out about her past lives on her own because she could die if the information comes to her all at once.  Now where will Luce go and how long will she get to stay with Daniel?

Think about it!
1. Why do you think Luce not getting baptized plays such a forceful role in her not being able to reincarnate after this life?  In other words, what’s up with the huge role of religion in Luce’s life (lives)?
2. So Molly is a fallen angel too, and on Cam’s side.  Is that why she treats Luce like poop? Why or why not?
