Blurb:

It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back.

Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel.

Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl.

Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival. Together, they journey toward the angels’ stronghold in San Francisco where she’ll risk everything to rescue her sister and he’ll put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again. {goodreads.com}

My Review:

I absolutely loved this novel. It is a very rich story that cleverly intertwines Angel mythology and a dystopian future.

Susan Ee and her take on Angels reminds me very much of Laini Taylor, and the Seraphim of The Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy. Her angels, just like Taylor’s, are brutal, war mongering entities that look to destroy, very old testament. They have descended upon earth, more specifically Northern California where they story takes place, and have destroyed all that can be called human nature. Society as we know it is in peril and fighting for its existence.

Penryn is a shockingly strong character. She is the caretaker of her family and it falls upon her to protect herself, her mother and sister, from the Angels and all the danger that they present. And, she will stand against the danger till she overcomes it!

I don’t want to get too deep on this review because I truly want you to read this story!

 

p.s. the only downfall is for some reason Angelfall and it’s sequel End of Days is not offered in eBook form for the nook, which is a HUGE no-no for me, but I’m hoping that this resolves itself soon….
