Angelfall – Susan Ee

The book “Angelfall” follows the story of Penryn, her sister Paige, and their (kind of whack-a-doodle) mother during the apocalypse. The Angel’s (under order from Gabriel) have come to Earth to annihilate the humans. When Penryn’s wheelchair-bound sister is abducted by a group of unnamed Angel’s Penryn truly believes all hope to be lost, until she sees Raffe, wings torn off and bleeding to death on the concrete. She then does something she never thought she was capable of, but she’d do anything to find her sister. The novel follows Penryn’s journey through the end of the world fighting for survival to rescue Paige.

The book was quite good, it’s going to have a sequel which comes out very soon actually (luckily; because it ends on a cliffhanger, be warned). I really enjoyed the characters and I love when angel’s are portrayed as the warriors of God that they really are, and not necessarily the “good” guys. One little thing was I feel the characters could have been developed a bit better – but I think that Ee will have time to work on that in book two. By the end of the book I did end up caring and wanting to know more/ read more about the characters; hence, my anticipation for book two.

One of the most abnosome things about this book was that it was originally published just on Amazon; she sold like 400,000 e-books and then it got picked up for publishing. It kind of gives proof to the “if there’s a will there’s a way” saying, which is one of the theme’s of the novel – it’s an interesting parallel.

Overall, I give it my stamp of approval (not just because of my obsession with the winged heaven dwellers or my morbid fascination with the apocalypse) but it’s a good story about strength, determination, and finding faith when all seems lost.

Happy Reading!!
