Angelfall by Susan Ee review and giveaway!

Angelfall by Susan Ee (Penryn & the End of Days #1)


bought


Synopsis from Goodreads
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.

Buy from Amazon

Oh.My.God. I've devoured this book within few hours and desperately wanted to know more. 

I knew Angelfall would be good. There are just that many awesome reviews on this book from the blogs I love...


What I got is a story of post-apocalyptic world destroyed by angels. The cities are in ruins and overrun by gangs. The angels are scary-ass mother f*ckers, dark, cold and twisted. They snatch people off the streets and take them God only knows where. There is lack of food, corpses everywhere and rumors of bands of cannibals...


Penryn is a young girl with a little sister in a wheelchair and a schizophrenic psychotic mother, who frequently believes that demons possess her, and who in one of her moments of clarity makes Penryn learn all sorts of martial arts so she could defend herself from dear mom.


One night when the family tries to find a safe house, they stumble on to a fight between angels. Accidently helping one of them, Penryn enrages the other who snatches her sister and flies away.


Now she has only one goal, - find her sister no matter what. Penryn half enlists half forces Raffe, the injured angel she saved to help her, and while they travel through dark deserted lands and fight for their survival, an unexpected friendship develops...


There are a lot of horrifying moments in this book, it's very intense and action-packed. Penryn is driven by her rage, fear and love, and she makes a very strong and appealing character.


Raffe is more of a silent, enigmatic kind. You can hear more in what he doesn't say than in what he says. I can only guess the whole purpose behind the apocalypse in snatches of info you get from this book, and frankly what I can guess is terrifying. 

What if the angels had their own agenda? What if the Messenger of God wasn't actually delivering God's will by destroying the world? Why would angels snatch people?


You have to read for yourself to find out. *evil laughter*


It' was a  fantastic read and my only complaint was that I would have loved more descriptions of Penryn and Raffe. I still can't see them clearly in my mind.

Невероятная книга! Читать всем!


17-летняя Пенрин пережила апокалипсис 6 недель назад, когда ангелы разрушили её мир. Теперь вместе с млладшей сестрой, прикованной к инвалидному креслу и мамой-опасной шизофреничкой, которой кажется, что демоны приказывают ей сделать то одно то другое, она пытается выжить и найти безопасное убежище.

Пробираясь по заброшенным и контролируемым различными бандами улицам своего города в одну ночь семья оказывается невольным свидетелем схватки между ангелами. Пенрин случайно помогает поверженному ангелу, и один из нападающих в отместку хватает её сестру и улетает с ней.


Пенрин пойдёт на всё, что угодно, чтобы вернуть сестрёнку, и напрловину угрожая, наполовину моля, просит раненого, лишённого в битве крыльев, ангела Раффа о помощи.


Так начинается их путешествие по опустошённым дорогам Америки, среди банд, каннибалов, трупов, квази-военных организаций и чёрт знает ещё чего. В борьбе за выживание между Пенрин, которой двигают страх, ярость и любовь, и молчаливым, загадочным Раффом растёт странная дружба....


Эта очень тёмная, пугающая история, понемногу открывающая вид на то, что происходит в мире. 


Что если у ангелов свои тайные цели? Что если послания от бога начать Апокалипсис никогда не было? Что происходит с людьми, которых похищают ангелы?
Читайте, и может быть, узнаете сами.


9.5/10

My fav angels ... that's a hard one, but I took a look at a looong list of angels online and I saw there are angels of confusion! Why go for the obvious ones when there are those who are a lot more intriguing?

My favorite angel would be Gabriel. I grew up hearing of his stories and I even have a pendant of his that I have worn before for protection. Thanks for the giveaway!

I think I’m going to try to find this book! It sounds great. I read another Angel book and really liked that one as well. Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I also love post apocalyptic stories. Cheers!
