Synopsis (from Goodreads):
"Every single liftime, I'll choose you. Just as you have always chosen me. Forever."

Before Luce and Daniel met at Sword & Cross, before they fought the Immortals, they had already lived many lives.

But Daniel is chasing her through-out the centuries before she has a chance to rewrite history.

How many deaths can one true love endure? And can Luce and Daniel unlock their past in order to change their future? 

The thrilling sequel to the international bestsellers Fallen and Torment.

My Review:
Luce stepped into the Announcer, leaving her Daniel behind, trying to understand everything, and destroy the curse. From Moscow to Milan, she travelled alone, had no idea of Daniel following her. Daniel was always a step late. In Moscow, Luce found out that all the angels, Cam Gabbe, Arriane, Roland and Molly were also there. They had good knowledge of her fearful fate.

In Helston, England, 1854 she met Bill, a tiny gargoyle inside her announcer. Bill helped her adjust herself with the current situation, with outfits and bits of information. But Bill hid himself when the angels were around. One thing that was confusing. Roland seemed to sense Bill while Arriane did not. Luce continued with her Journey to Tahiti and Prusia. In Pursia, she witnessed Daniel's pain. Daniel ignored the whole world and fell to sleep after Luce's death.

In Lhasa, Tiber, Luce was devastated watching Daniel try to kill himself after Luce's demise. It was the worst experience for Daniel, to watch Luce meet her demise by only talking to him. Daniel's agony made him jump from a cliff, broke all his bones and stayed motionless until Gabbe found him, made him vow to never lose hop, to never destroy himself again.

Luce was in Memphis, Egypt, 3100 BC. She was Layla, who fell in love with Daniel, the army commander, her princess' fiancee. Bill told her to kill her soul with a starshot, to free Daniel from his misery, for their cursed fate. The starshot will kill her immortal soul and will return her into her old self. But Daniel's love has prevented her from doing so. Daniel's love made her believe that one day they would be free from the curse. Bill was furious with that and was changed into something bigger. His true self was Lucifer and he was so furious of Luce's failure.

Daniel came to the Heaven Gate, where the angels were gathering, where the roll call was conducted. That was a very important time when the angels had to choose their side, Heaven or Hell with Lucifer, when Daniel old self had chosen Lucinda. He was punished for that. Lucinda, his love will never meet her adolescence, will die again and again.

Daniel then begged for clemency, saying that some millennium had passed and he now asked for mercy. The Throne granted his plea and Lucifer was so mad with that.

Will Daniel be able to save Luce? What will Lucifer do? What will happen to all the angels?
