Review for Angelfall by Susan Ee
Angelfall by Susan Ee
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.
"Who will guard against the guardians?"
"You are nothing but a bird with an attitude."
"A sense of humor is one more thing I don't think angels should have. The fact that his sense of humor is corny makes it even more wrong."
Dystopian novel with Angles?? YES PLEASE!
Angelfall was something very different from the get go, with a kick-ass female lead, the brilliant dystopian world set up by Susan Ee was engaging with amazing characters and a fantastic story line.
I absolutely loved every action-packed second of it. I especially loved the witty banter between Penryn and Raffe.
Fabulous read! Exactly my kind of book.
