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 Raffe, an injured enemy angel. Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they journey toward the angels’ stronghold in San Francisco, where Penryn will risk everything to rescue her sister and Raffe will put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.
Spoiler Free Review
Right out of the gate I was hooked into this book. Susan Ee has a beautiful way of telling a story and keeping you turning the page.
My heart immediately went out for Penryn when her sister was taken. All of things she goes through to get her back. I love Penryn’s strength and determination through everything. She is now one of my favorite female protagonist in a book, definitely in the top 10.
I love the snarky and sarcastic relationship that Penryn and Raffe have. I knew that there was an underlying romance blooming but he did very well at hiding it. Their conversations made me laugh and the way they protected each other is perfectly written.
This book did not let up once and I am looking forward to the sequel.
I highly recommend this book to anyone that is looking for a great new take on angels or just an action packed kick ass of a book.
