Luce would die for Daniel.

And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn’t need to be that way. . . .

Luce is certain that something—or someone—in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime . . . going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel . . . and finally unlock the key to making their love last.

Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history.

Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames . . . forever.
(Goodreads Synopsis)

This is most definitely my favourite of the three books in this series so far.

In Passion, Lucinda final comes into her own and shows a little more initiative and guts. I still found myself silently yelling at her about where she was placing her trust, and I saw the twist coming a mile away, but it was refreshing to see her take action at last.

Bill was a fun new character addition and I like the way the storyline is progressing. The pacing in this book was the best yet and the fast moving scenes helped to hold my interest and enabled me to really whizz through, finishing it in barely two and a half hours.

Fans of the series will not be disappointed by this instalment and those who were unsure of books one and two would do well to give this third one a try. In Passion the pace picks up, the characters whine less and the scene is set for a ripping finale in Rapture, which I will certainly be reading when it is released next year.
