So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past. (Goodreads) Out June 14th.

Passion is the third book in the famous "Fallen" saga. With breath taking and award winning covers (read more about its covers here), a fourth book on the pipeline and rights optioned by Disney Studios for a possible movie, this book has plenty of hype leading to its launch. I have the first two books, Fallen and Torment, on my to-read shelf and I have to admit I am getting quite curious now.
