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.

First sentence: “Ironically, since the attacks, the sunsets have been glorious.”

NIKKI, YOU WERE RIGHT!

This is an incredibly top book!

What Angelfall did with me was swipe its leg, making me fall on my face before it blasted me out of this world by the sheer awesomeness of the story and the characters. Seriously. It’s that good. Who would’ve thought I’d enjoy angels? I’m just in awe that Susan Ee convinced me that angels can be awesome.

This book was very much post-apocalyptic with a huge dose of sci-fi (that’s almost like an alien invasion) in it by the end. Instead of the typical alien invasion, we have an angel invasion. It’s beautiful, really. What happens in Angelfall is absolutely horrifying in the best way possible! This book is dark. Gruesome shit happens. You will cringe. (At least, for me, I did.) Prepare yourself for those scenes. It’s horrible, but Susan Ee writes in a way that is simply great.
