    One thought on “Fallen”

    1. 4.5 stars I have a theory that it's nearly impossible to read a Karin Slaughter book in more than a day. She's one of the few authors whose books I NEED to get and devour on the day they're released because I'm so engrossed in the characters and have been waiting a whole year to find out what happens to them next. If you like your murder mysteries on the dark and gritty side, if you're fascinated by the seething violence lurking in the human psyche, this author is a definitely going to make your [...]

    2. Fallen by Karin Slaughter is a 2012 Dell/Random House publication. This fifth installment in the Will Trent series may be, arguably, I’m sure, the best one of the series thus far. Evelyn is babysitting for Faith when she becomes a victim of a home invasion. Once Faith arrives, she finds Emma safe and sound, but Evelyn has been taken. From this point on, the drama, action and suspense are a non-stop rollercoaster ride. Many burning questions are answered and some huge developments take place in [...]

    3. She didn’t flinch. She didn’t falter. Instead, she put her forehead to his, looked him in the eye and told him, “Breathe.” Will let out a breath he felt like he’d been holding his entire life.I LOVE THIS SERIES. I LOVE WILL TRENT. ❤From book to book there isn’t a connection with the plots. With each book you get a story that sucks you in right from the get go and doesn’t let you go until you turn that last page. Each of the characters are changing in ways that are intriguing. Kar [...]

    4. I don't know what it is about Will that endears me to him. He is not movie star handsome, he is socially inept in many ways, he is awkward. But he is lovable. He had a tough upbringing but that didn't make him mean and tough, quite the opposite actually.He wasn't even her type.We have a situation involving Lena, her mother, Amanda and a cast of characters from the past. But who is guilty? Who is innocent? Slaughter has a great way of writing where you seriously don't know who to believe. She had [...]

    5. Finally!!! Will has someone in his life that actually cares about him and understands what he went through as a kid. I love Sara for him. Great book as well.

    6. The story starts with a bang when GBI Agent Faith Mitchell returns to her mother, Evelyn's home to pick up her infant daughter, Emily, and finds a chilling situation. When the dust settles, the house is a major crime scene and Evelyn is missing. It's now a race against time to figure out the who, why and where. I couldn't stop listening to this story, told from many characters' points of view. It was often difficult to keep up with all of the minor gangsters but it didn't matteryou knew they wer [...]

    7. So good! I was on the edge of my seat! Amanda is a tough old broad, and the relationship between her and Will is very much like a dysfunctional mother and son. Still, I think she's on his side. Hope so anyhow. I'm falling harder for Will with every installment. (view spoiler)[ He needs a HEA with Sara! They are sooo cute together.(hide spoiler)]Faith had some tough times, but made good choices for the most part. Angie is a manipulative bitch who never ceases to amaze me with her cruelty, and sel [...]

    8. I'm seriously running out of accolades for this series and author. Karin Slaughter is simply one of the best in Suspense & Romance Suspense. Once again, I found myself flipping/reading pages as fast as I could, heart pounding, anticipation soaring. Fallen starts off with a sense of impending doom as Faith is running late & fails to reach her mother, who is babysitting Faith's infant daughter, by phone. After finally reaching her home, Faith's fear ratchets up another notch at the sounds [...]

    9. This year I'm doing a Reading Challenge; so I have 26 books with specific subjects that I need to read.Book 19: A book with an one-word titleThese books never fail to engage and impress!Before I started this book I was in the beginning of a bad reading slump, but as always Slaughter pulled me right out of it. Her writing style is so fluent and addictive, you just can't help but read and read and read.In Fallen we get a snippet of what Faith's life was about before she joined the GBI (Georgia Bur [...]

    10. Fallen, the 5th in the Will Trent series, is hands down my favorite so far. I would give it more than five stars if I could. This was a very personal story for some of the regular characters we have come to know, which in turn made it personal for me as well (I’m very much invested in these people at this point). This wasn’t just a crime to be solved. It was a crime that must be solved- and with no less than a positive outcome.Faith Mitchell’s mother, Evelyn, is in serious trouble and Fait [...]

    11. I haven't exactly been a great fan of Slaughter's Will Trent series, preferring the Grant County series, until now. She has really hit her stride in this, the fifth of the series. This is a thrilling and exhilarating read that finally begins to pull all the strands together. I do often wonder though, when Sara Linton gets time to tend to her Paediatric practice? She is always so busy catching criminals!4.5 stars upgraded to 5 stars

    12. Can this author tell a story? I can easily say you're damn skippy she can. There was more content and dialogue packed in #5 than the others I've read in this series. Same cast of characters thoughere are of course damaged Will (lysdexic but brilliant detective), bitch from hell Amanda (Will's boss), tough as nails Faith (Will's partner), the sweet doctor Sarah (Will's friend with benefits), and last but least the queen of skank Angie (Will's wife, but use this word loosely). I'm telling you and [...]

    13. 5 STARSWHOA! This series is really heating up now! And each and every character is being pushed to the breaking point. Whether it be in a good way or a bad. And as I get to know them, I am loving them all even more or as in Angie's case, hating. Will is finally getting some happy in his life. Yes, it is completely immersed in turmoil, but it is there nonetheless. And while I think he has a long way to go cutting the cord with Angie, I am holding out hope that he can finally walk away from her fo [...]

    14. Karin Slaughter is my favorite go-to author for brain-candy police procedural reading. Her plots are fast-paced and interesting and her characters are so well-written. You may not like all of them and they may frustrate the hell out of you, but you are not bored by them. I have been waiting forever for this book to become available. I read it pretty much in 24 hours. It was so good. The plot is very good and kept me reading till 1 am this morning (despite the fact that I had to be up at 6am for [...]

    15. Another book passed on by my Mother In law, and frankly I must have upset her recently in some way. This was amazingly disappointing for a Karin Slaughter book.Previous books of hers have torn along at a frantic pace, real page turners, but this felt like a plodding old horse, crying out to be put out of it's misery.Normally the plots are rivetting and unfold in unexpected ways. This felt like a non-story from start to finish. It was clear that the missing mother was alive, and was likely to rem [...]

    16. To tell the truth, with this one I found myself yawning over the detailed forensics and skipping all of it to get to what is most interesting, which is Will and Sara's relationship. I found myself losing interest in the main plot, which was the disappearance of Faith's mother. I think my thing is characters, not forensics and procedures. As mentioned regarding other books in this series, Slaughter has done an about-turn with Angie, suddenly portraying her as a 'bee-atch' who delights in pushing [...]

    17. My MusingsI normally give 5 Star ratings to really great fiction - i.e. the Classics and very well written Literary Fiction - but Fallen is really, really good. I am somewhat biased because I'm half in love with Karin Slaughter's Dyslexic loner protagonist, GBI Agent Will Trent. And the Will Trent Series is the only series that I've started that I put the newer novels aside to read each book in order; I usually read series (after finding a novel that catches my eye) beginning with the novel I re [...]

    18. Book number five of the Will Trent series starts out with several bangs: three dead bodies immediately. Trent’s partner at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Faith Mitchell is the focus of attention in the bloodletting. At the end of the last book she had a baby girl. That baby is now four months old bringing the bodies from the last book chronologically very close to the bodies in this book. Will Trent needs more rest time between murders so he can sort out his relationship with his wife Ang [...]

    19. Late picking up her infant daughter at her mother's house, Georgia Bureau of Investigations Agent Faith Mitchell is shaken by what she finds. There is a hostage situation inside the house. Her infant daughter is locked in the shed. Her mother, retired police captain Evelyn Mitchell, is missing. Faith's partner, Will Trent, and her boss, Amanda Wagner, delve into the investigation along with the Atlanta Police Department. We learn that Evelyn Mitchell once supervised a group of narcotics officers [...]

    20. I have been reading this series for a few months now and I have enjoyed all of the books I have read so far and this one is no different. This could be my favorite so far in the series, and I look forward to the rest of the books and any that may be written in the future.In this installment we have Faith who goes to her mother's house and sees that things are not what they usually are when the front door is open and a bloody handprint in on the door. Her mother has been abducted, and it is up to [...]

    21. 4.5-starsSome signs of an abusive relationship:Humiliation. Manipulation. Jealousy. Guilt. Violence.This is probably the first time I have come across a series that features a male protagonist who is abused by his wife. While the author used the crime investigation, suspense, and mystery as main elements to drive the narrative throughout the series, Fallen offered something different from the previous four installments: more personal. I could feel the intense disgust in the scene between Angie a [...]

    22. Lang geleden dat ik een boek van Karin Slaughter heb gelezen. Nu ik het uit heb, weet ik weer waarom ik zo van haar boeken hou. Spannend en verrassend. Het voordeel van zo'n serie als deze is dat je aan de ene kant wel een beetje kunt inschatten wat voor soort verhaal je krijgt qua stijl en personages. Iets wat ik bij een opzichzelfstaand verhaal minder heb. Vooral als ik de auteur niet ken. Aan de andere kant is het verhaal verrassend genoeg, zodat het toch nog spannend is. Wel had ik steeds wa [...]

    23. Every time I pick up another novel by Karen Slaughter, I experience a new plot filled with danger and suspense, twists and surprises; Fallen, the fifth in the Will Trent series, is no different.As the book begins, we see that Faith Mitchell’s seminar ran late, and now she can’t reach her mother by phone to tell her that she’s on her way to her house to pick up her infant daughter. As she reaches her mother Evelyn’s home, she immediately knows something is wrong. Her baby Emma is in her c [...]

    24. FALLEN is the third book in the "Georgia" series that combined the characters from Slaughter's "Grant County" and "Atlanta" series. In addition to combining the series, Slaughter has combined all the best elements of her writing to create a captivating, exciting crime novel.I've always been a fan of Sara Linton. While she's a smart, beautiful woman, she's also awkward and quirky. She can't cook and she loves dogs. There are so many details about her character that draw the dimensions of a real p [...]

    25. This series has always been a great balance of mystery (a specific crime to be solved) and character development. While this book tackles both areas once again, the latter has greatly expanded, providing one of the most in-depth looks into the team to date.Will's connection to Faith and her mother, Evelyn, has not always been the strongest. As a series refresher, that would be because he was responsible for putting away her whole corrupt team, and forcing her mom's early retirement. So when a cr [...]

    26. You may also read my review here: mybookishways/2012/05/First of all, if you love crime fiction and mystery, and haven’t discovered Karin Slaughter’s books, that’s ok, you don’t have to start at the “beginning”. You could pick up Fallen and, well, fall into the addictive stories that she creates. Fallen is the author’s 10th novel and easily one of the best (they’re all excellent if that tells you anything.) Fallen is Faith and Will’s book (although Sara Linton gets a big part i [...]

    27. Okay, I need to get a life. I just read 4 books in this series in 2 weeks. Now I am going to take a break, I swear. No more Amanda, Trent, and Sara for a few days. Starting a totally different genre. A Little Life
