Review 'Angelfall' by Susan Ee


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11500217-angelfall
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.


My Review:


I read ‘Angelfall’ by Susan Ee in November 2013. I love many books and I have a lot of favorite ones, but this book is one of my all-time favorites. From the moment I started reading this book I was completely addicted. And because this book is one of my favorite books, I decided to post my review on my blog. Because this book just has to be shared. And the best thing about this book?? It’s a series!!!

I first saw ‘Angelfall’ by Susan Ee when I was shopping in Amsterdam. My eyes saw this sticker at the front saying ‘The Internet Phenomenon’ and off course I just had to read where this book was about. I read the summary and decided this was definitely my kind of book.

‘Angelfall’ is the story of Penryn, a 17 year old girl living in a world where angels returned on earth and destroyed the world as they know it. When Penryn’s little sister Paige is taken away by the angels, Penryn is determined to find her sister. But how will she find her sister in a world run by dangerous and evil angels? Penryn will do anything for her sister and soon she makes a rush decision to help an injured angel so she can find a way into the angels headquarters.

I really loved this book from the first page on. This book is just so well written that you are hooked from the first page. I loved the chemistry between Penryn and Raffe and just couldn’t put this book down. I just needed to know what would happen next. I really loved everything about this book. And the sticker at the front of this book is definitely right: this book is phenomenal.

This book is definitely on my favorite list and I would recommend this book to every fantasy/paranormal/YA lover out there. Thankfully this book is the first one in the 'Penryn and the End of Days' series so there's gonna be much more Penryn and Raffe to read about. :D
