Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days #1)
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.
I’m pretty enthrall about this book since I am always fascinated with stories about angels. Well, after the smash hit of The Mortal Instruments for that matter. The rundown of this book is so intriguing. Like you can feel it will be unlike any other Angel books that you might have read. Not the usual goody good Angels perhaps. The book cover is equally interesting. Dark, bold and captivating. I can’t think of any other cover that will suit the outline of AngelFall better. I also suppose this would be action packed and I can’t help not to expect much since there were a lot of good reviews that I’ve read.
If you’ve been searching high and low for a worthy successor to The Hunger Games, the wait is finally over. Susan Ee’s stunning debut novel is the perfect combination of post-apocalyptic YA + cannibals + badass angels + kickass heroine, and it blew me away with its perfectly paced blend of action, story, and emotional tension. — Wendy Darling
The pace never slows, the excitement never runs dry, and the ending is the perfect mixture of closure and a temptation for more. — Emily May
There are two kinds of amazing books: the ones you can’t stop raving about, and the ones that leave you at a loss for words. ‘Angelfall was the latter for me. I don’t know what to say and I’m sure everything and more has already been said about this phenomenal book. —Belle (Little Paper Rose)
This review is a bit torn, but I’ll round it up to.. she’s confused.
I’m struggling with rating this. It falls somewhere between intriguing and just plain bizarre. All of it was emotional in some way or another, and some parts were so painful I actually felt myself getting pissed off at a world that doesn’t actually exist. I’m going to start book 2 tonight and have hope for things to start making a little more sense. — Bobbie
And presenting. The haters. Ha! ha!
I’ve been reading excellent books all week, and this is just the perfect book to ruin my addiction. I hated it. I thought it would be like Unearthly, but I was wrong. So wrong. It drags. I found myself wishing for it to be over, which never happens when I’m reading a good book. There were too many moments spent on imagery, which distracted me from the plot. There wasn’t much that actually happened in the book! I’m not sure why this is rated so high. — Kelsey
Possibly one of the most disappointing reads ever. I thought it had potential… I kept waiting for it to get good. By the time I was about 90% through, I concluded that it was never going to happen. Still, I finished it. Can’t say I’m glad I did. All in all, if you’d rather not be bored by a mediocre story, avoid this book at all costs. Oh, and I found it extremely disturbing, so if you don’t enjoy disturbing concepts that belong in horror movies… Do NOT READ THIS. — Madison
My expectation is still high after reading reviews, though I’m having second thoughts. I may not be a fan of a horror movie kind of books, but I still want to read it. Perhaps to really grasp what the reviews are all about. You can never say a cake is sweet unless you taste it right? Anyway, review to follow. Happy reading to me! 😃
