The story focuses on 'Luce', sent to 'Sword and Cross Reform School' in Savannah, Georgia, after she is accused of murdering a boy by starting a fire. At the reform school, she meets 'Daniel', a young man she feels inexplicably drawn to, and believes she has met before.
The book then revolves mostly around a "Twilight"-like love triangle between Luce, Daniel and 'Cam', another boy enrolled at Sword and Cross.
'Daniel' is a fallen angel - a heavenly being who chose, for a short time, to side with evil at the beginning of time - and Luce’s main romantic interest. He saves Luce from a falling statue of an angel in the cemetery adjoining the school, then feigns disinterest in Luce, trying to ignore her for her own 'safety', »

If you have already been reading the Fallen series by Lauren Kate, then you were probably waiting in anticipation just like I was for the third book. Two years ago a friend of mine let me borrow the first book with a promise that I wouldn’t be able to put it down. I was disappointed to say that I could put it down, and I wasn’t terribly impressed. In a sea of Twilight-esque books being published every day, the story wasn’t that original. Swap vampires for fallen angels, and you’ve got a very similar plot. At least, that’s how it seemed. When Torment was released next, I only bought it because I believe in sometimes giving a series a second chance. I’ve discovered that sometimes, the first book is just setting us up for a story that’s going to be really interesting. I was surprised to be right. »
