It’s the book FALLEN fans have been waiting for: Cam’s story, the brooding, bad-boy dark angel 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.
Spread your wings and cry as bad boy dark angel Cam finally reveals his anguished heart in the epic new FALLEN novel, UNFORGIVEN.

My Thoughts on Unforgiven:
If you’ve read the Fallen series, you will want to read Unforgiven. It is Cam’s story, after Daniel and Luce got the conclusion to their story. Cam has only ever loved one girl, and after making a deal with the devil, gets the chance to make things right with her. The only catch is that if he can’t make her fall in love with him again, he’ll belong to the devil forever.While the premise sounds interesting, the book was a bit of a let down. It was sweet and sappy, which isn’t at all how I imagined Cam’s story being. Cam is my favorite character from the Fallen series, so I was excited to read his story. He’s a dark, brooding demon with a lot of depth in Luce’s story. However, when he got his own story, he turned rather flat. It’s as if the book was written with a different character in mind, then Cam’s name was inserted.
If you haven’t read the Fallen series, you will probably like this book better than I did. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it. It was just okay. It’s more of a contemporary story dealing with issues like prom and mean girls than the intense life-or-death plot we got in Fallen. Obviously, based on the other reviews on Goodreads, I’m in the minority here. So take my opinion for what it’s worth and don’t let it stop you from enjoying the book.
