Doubleday, 2012. ISBN: 978-0-385-61812-0.
Age: older teens and young adults. When you have only nine days to save the world from existing as the way you know it, where do you start? That's the dilemma that Luce and her angle boyfriend, Daniel are faced with. They only have nine days to stop Lucifer, a demon hell beat on altering the past and erasing the present as they know it. Luce and Daniel must travel to the location where millions of angels fell over thousands of years ago in order to stop Lucifer. Only one problem is that no angel can remember where the fall site is. So Luce and Daniel with the help of their friends must find and locate three relics that will be able to tell them where the fallen site is. This is not as easy as it sounds, as others are out to stop them and time is running out for Luce, Daniel and their friends. Will they make it in time?
Rapture continues with the same storyline that was left at the end of Passion for the final instalment of Lauren Kate's series Fallen. Rapture is about friendship, love and sacrifice as Daniel and Luce joins their friends as they try to stop Lucifer from changing the past and altering the present. Luce must use her knowledge she has gained from her past lives to help Daniel and the rest of her friends in their mission. I would recommend reading the side story, Fallen in Love, before reading Rapture as there are small assumptions that the reader has read the side story. When reading Rapture, I knew it was a good book because I found it hard to put down. I would recommend this book to older teenagers and young adults.
