OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! My favourite book of all time, no actually my favourite series of all time is now for sale, for real cheap at Amazon!!
Angelfall by Susan Ee was published somewhere in 2011 and I love that book so much. I literally couldn’t stop reading this book, I started reading it somewhere around 10 PM (big-big mistake!) and I finished somewhere in the early morning. This was one of the better post-apocalyptic books I’ve read in the last few months.
Starting the first few pages I got really excited, I really liked where the story was going and loved the characters. Penryn is the heroin; she is finally not some lost puppy that just keeps chasing her own tale. She is loyal, brave, friendly, beautiful and loves her family to bits. That last part about loving her family is where this book starts.
Angels destroyed the world and Penryn, her mother and her little sister Paige have to flee their home since brutal gangs destroy everything that the angels left unbroken. During their escape to safer grounds they fall in the middle of an angel battle where Penryns mom runs and her sister gets taken by them and the only way for Penryn to get her back is to help the angel who was just stripped of his wings. Raffe (the fallen angel) and Penryn go on an adventure with as goal the Aerie (angel headquarters).
On their adventures the come across some very nasty little creatures. Imagine angels shaped like scorpions that stick their needle in you and then suck your insides out. Or little kids that are mutated to a form where they feed on other humans, gross right?
This story really drags you in and I couldn’t stop cheering Penryn on in her mission to safe her sister. The only thing that I missed is the connection between Penryn and Raffe, I really believe that Susan Ee wanted some love there but it wasn’t happening for me. Hopefully the next book and the third book will have some more details on this love story.
I’m literally ordering these books to my Kindle as we speak, gonna be reading through the night again.. Bad, bad me. If you don’t have a Kindle yet, I would recommend this Kindle if you are on a bit of a budget, it’s still really good though!! Or this Kindle if you want the best of the best.
Don’t forget to download the books at this website for cheap! Let me know what you think! I’ll be reading book 2 and 3 in the next few days.
