Description-

  • Every story has a dark side, and this story belongs to Cam, the brooding, bad-boy dark angel FALLEN readers love.
     
    High school can be hell.
     
    Cam knows what it’s like to be haunted. He’s spent more time in Hell than any angel ever should. And his freshest Hell is high school, where Lilith, the girl he can’t stop loving, is serving out a punishment for his crimes.

    Cam made a bet with Lucifer: he has fifteen days to convince the only girl who really matters to him to love him again. If he succeeds, Lilith will be allowed back into the world, and they can live their lives together. But if he fails . . . there’s a special place in Hell just for him. Tick-tock. 

    Spread your wings and cry as bad boy dark angel Cam finally reveals his anguished heart in the epic FALLEN novel, UNFORGIVEN.

Excerpts-

  • From the book

    Lilith woke up coughing.
     
    It was wildfire season—it was always wildfire season—and her lungs were thick with smoke and ash from the red blaze in the hills.
     
    Her bedside clock flashed midnight, but her thin white curtains glowed gray with dawn. The power must be out again. She thought of the biology test awaiting her in fourth period, followed immediately by the sucky fact that last night she’d brought home her American history book by mistake. Whose idea of a cruel joke was it to assign her two textbooks with precisely the same color spine? She was going to have to wing the test and pray for a C.
     
    She slid out of bed and stepped in something warm and soft. She drew her foot up, and the smell assaulted her.
     
    “Alastor!”
     
    The little blond mutt trotted into her bedroom, thinking Lilith wanted to play. Her mom called the dog a genius because of the tricks Lilith’s brother, Bruce, had taught him, but Alastor was four years old and refused to learn the only trick that mattered: being housebroken.
     
    “This is seriously uncivilized,” she scolded the dog, and hopped on one foot into the bathroom. She turned on the shower.
     
    Nothing.
     
    Water off till 3 p.m. her mom’s note proclaimed on a sheet of loose-leaf taped to the bathroom mirror. The tree roots outside were curling through their pipes, and her mom was supposed to have money to pay the plumber this afternoon, after she got a paycheck from one of her many part-time jobs.
     
    Lilith groped for toilet paper, hoping at least to wipe her foot clean. She found only a brown cardboard tube. Just another Tuesday. The details varied, but every day of Lilith’s life was more or less the same degree of awful.
     
    She tore her mom’s note from the mirror and used it to wipe her foot, then dressed in black jeans and a thin black T-shirt, not looking at her reflection. She tried to remember a single shred of what her biology teacher had said might be on the test.
     
    By the time she got downstairs, Bruce was tilting the remains of the cereal box into his mouth. Lilith knew those stale flakes were the last morsels of food in the house.
     
    “We’re out of milk,” Bruce said.
     
    “And cereal?” Lilith said.
     
    “And cereal. And everything.” Bruce was eleven and nearly as tall as Lilith, but much slighter. He was sick. He had always been sick. He was born too soon, with a heart that couldn’t keep up with his soul, Lilith’s mother liked to say. Bruce’s eyes were sunken and his skin had a bluish tint because his lungs could never get enough air. When the hills were on fire, like they were every day, he wheezed at the smallest exertion. He stayed home in bed more often than he went to school.
     
    Lilith knew Bruce needed breakfast more than she did, but her stomach still growled in protest. Food, water, basic hygiene products—everything was scarce in the dilapidated dump they called home.
     
    She glanced through the grimy kitchen window and saw her bus pulling away from the stop. She groaned, grabbing her guitar case and her backpack, making sure her black journal was inside.
     
    “Later, Bruce,” she called, and took off.
     
    Horns blared and tires squealed as Lilith sprinted across the street without looking, like she always told Bruce not to do. Despite her terrible luck, she never worried about dying. Death would mean freedom from the panicked hamster wheel of her life, and Lilith knew she wasn’t that lucky....

    October 15, 2015
    The long-standing Fallen series continues with bad boy fallen angel Cam trying to win back his lost love from ancient Israel, entering into a deal with the devil to do it. In 1,000 B.C.E. Cam and Lilith fell in love, but Cam broke Lilith's heart. Now he learns something he has been unaware of for millennia: Lilith has been in Hell all this time. He meets with Lucifer, who shows him via endless snow globe-style worlds how Lilith has been in one Hell after the other for millennia. Cam accepts a deal: if he does not win Lilith's heart in two weeks, he will become Lucifer's slave for eternity. The difficulty is that Lilith hates Cam, so he will have to break through that hatred to turn things around. In her current Hell, Lilith lives in poverty and attends a horrible high school that runs seven days per week with no holidays and where she is bullied by students and teachers alike. Cam joins in as a new student and uses Lilith's deep musical talent to try to win her love. However, Lucifer turns up in the form of Luc, a music promoter, to deceive Lilith into believing that Cam is untrustworthy. Nevertheless, Cam continues his efforts to win her over, despite the fact that Lucifer is aging him from a handsome boy into a dumpy, balding, unattractive guy. Will Lilith be able to see through Lucifer's deceptions and regain the love she felt for Cam so long ago? It's all pretty soapy, but Kate delivers for her fans, her snow-globe world plausible if not entirely original, and keeps suspense high enough to keep readers turning pages. Engaging enough to keep Kate's legions of fans happy. (Paranormal romance. 12-18)

    Grades 8-11 After watching eternal lovers Luce and Daniel overcome unimaginable odds to be together, fallen-angel Cam is inspired to find his own lost love, Lilith. She's trapped in hell, and Lucifer gives Cam 15 days to convince Lilith to give their love a chance. If he can't overcome the anger Lilith has borne for a millennium, Cam will be bound to the devil forever. This companion novel to Kate's Fallen (2009) and Rapture (2012) features a chapter-by-chapter countdown of Cam's two weeks, interspersed with short interludes that give Cam and Lilith's backstory. Predictability isn't always a bad thing, and this is a true high-school romance novelcomplete with an archenemy, a prom, and a battle-of-the-bands subplotthat successfully develops a minor character from earlier Fallen novels. This satisfying fantasy romance will delight fans and win over new readers looking for a melodramatic high.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)
