This week we finally find out what #1 New York Times bestselling author Lauren Kate has in store for us in Rapture, the fourth and final installment of her Fallen series. Finally, we’ll find out if Luce and Daniel can be together or if the dark forces plaguing them will tear them apart. (We’re hoping they end up together, but maybe that’s just us.) And you know what else goes well together? Rapture plus this week’s Daily Theme, composed just for us by Lauren Kate herself–rapture indeed!

The author of The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove and, of course, mother of the Fallen books has a prompt that’s perfect for everyone and perfect for getting those summer writing juices flowing!

Then one day everything changed me. The phone call was the one thing that drove me to the edge. She was dead and she was never coming back.

  2. I’ll try it, thanks! It’s always weird seeing the name Luce. It’s my brother name, and at least in Italian origen we pronounce it “Lu(ch)e (accent mark)
