If reading Hush, Hush and Crescendo make you think, “Fallen Angels are the new black” (like us), then you’ll want to check out the books in today’s post. Because we’re betting we’re not the only ones who discovered a hankering for more (fallen) angels after Patch. Here are some other books about angels and fallen angels that you may want to check out next:
Fallen by Lauren Kate
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.
Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.
(Be sure to check out the sequel, as well: Torment.)

The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
There are three books already out in this series, with three more on the way (#4 comes out in March) — PLUS the new trilogy of prequels, The Infernal Devices. Book 1 of the prequels is out now, Clockwork Angel, and two more are on the way. Here is the synopsis for Book 1 in The Mortal Instruments series, City of Bones:
When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder – much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing – not even a smear of blood – to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know….
Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.
