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.
AhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHHHH!! Oh my god I loved this book so much. I could kick myself for not reading it after the second book comes out because now I have to wait a week. Argh!
I seem to be on a streak of reading brilliant books. I was a little weary of reading this because my previous experience of angel books has been awful, but this has given me faith that there are excellent ones out there. I read this on my Kindle but I’m definitely going to buy it in book form. I don’t think I can live without it in my possession.
The characters are awesome. Penryn and Raffe… I just can’t wait to read more about them. Both fascinating, intriguing, strong and respectful characters. Dee-Dum is brilliant, reminds me a little of Fred and George Weasley. I loved their characters a lot, hilarious. The other characters were also really well written and I didn’t get annoyed with any of them (which is quite something when it comes to YA…).
The plot was delightful. I was on the edge of my seat at times and even got emotional and shed a few tears at the end. The author doesn’t tell us a great deal but enough to keep you interested and enough to want to read the next book and find out more.
I beseech you to give this book a chance it is FRICKIN’ FANTASTIC.
