The dialogue between Penryn and Raffe the angel is fantastic. It's so witty, funny, and sometimes touching. Good grief, I love this book! The pace never slows, the excitement never runs dry, and the ending is the perfect mixture of closure and a temptation for more. The second installment simply cannot come fast enough.

In the beginning, it starts with a single feather drifting slowly down from the sky. When year-old Penryn sees this simple sight, she is filled with incredible dread, because this lovely, floating, ephemeral thing is an unlikely sign of terrible things to come. Six weeks after a devastating attack on earth, the world has been torn apart by a war between angels and humans.
Caught up in a battle she doesn't understand, Penryn watches in horror as an angel named Raffe is cornered and brutally st In the beginning, it starts with a single feather drifting slowly down from the sky. Caught up in a battle she doesn't understand, Penryn watches in horror as an angel named Raffe is cornered and brutally stripped of his wings.
In trying to help, she antagonizes one of the perpetrators and is forced to watch as her wheelchair-bound little sister is taken away. Penryn angrily demands that Raffe provides information and assistance in finding her sibling, and the two natural enemies must work together to outwit danger at every turn. If you've been searching high and low for a worthy successor to The Hunger Games , the wait is finally over.
Penryn is a fantastic heroine, a whip-smart, funny girl who happens to be awesome in combat. I also found her interactions with her schizophrenic mother to be very touching, and it's impossible not to admire how her desperate resolve to find her sister never falters.
As for Raffe And so intriguing. Raffe is clearly hiding secrets, but it's impossible not to be drawn to him anyway. His relationship with Penryn develops slowly and naturally as they struggle to find shelter and to survive in bleak circumstances yeah, they eat cat food at one point , all against a bleak backdrop of a war and all kinds of unspeakable horrors.
Readers who are uneasy with more gruesome books should be warned that there are some pretty intense scenarios, although they are tastefully view spoiler [hah hah, tastefully!
For my somewhat twisted sense of humor and enjoyment of creepy visuals, it was exciting to find an author who writes such dark and vivid imagery, however, and I'd say that if you're someone who's comfortable reading zombie books, you'd probably be okay with what happens here. Not that I didn't want to run around screaming when Penryn and Raffe happen upon the But that's all part of the fun.
I have a few minor quibbles, mostly about Penryn's failure to ask and demand enough answers, as this seemed completely out of character for someone who grits her teeth and cool-headedly calculates whether she can keep someone alive long enough to be of use to her. It was frustrating and implausible that in such forced intimacy, a girl like this wouldn't have mercilessly hounded the information out of her traveling partner.
I also wish we'd learned a bit more about the war and about the ghoulish experimentations that were going on, although you can certainly put some of that down to my general impatience to read the rest of this 5-part series.
My quibbles are far outweighed by my rampant enthusiasm over this book, however, as the action-packed story, sharp and funny dialogue, macabre touches, unforgettable characters, and well-researched angelology all make for an incredible read. The twists and turns in this story are superbly done, and even if you happen to guess one of the major plot points that will have a major effect on the future books, it's not going to matter.

An enemy of hers! Main Characters Penryn One of the coolest badass female characters I have ever read about. Raffe What I liked about this character is his sense of humor. Me while reading the book favorite sentences: Let me see your foot. It usually takes dinner, some wine, and sparkling conversation for me to give up my feet. I just never thought it would be your loyalty to me that would do it.
We're ever so flawed. We're frail, confused, violent, and we struggle with so many issues. But all in all, I'm proud to be a Daughter of Man. That was freakin' Bizarroville.
Also heard rumors about the movie! May 19, Lola rated it it was amazing Shelves: When I was a little younger, I used to be obsessed with angels. I used to wish to become one, the day of my death, how morbid and often absurdly made the said wish when blowing candles, on my birthdays.
Therefore, everyone in my vicinity would see carry an angel story around. I was smitten with them. This peculiar obsession lasted for years and so my pile of angel books read became real impressive.
But hear me out: Relentlessly dark. And more. I have no clue on how this will end. The world is already dead, what could happen more?
I feel like snooping around Goodreads reviews and catch bits and hints on what will happen next with Penryn and Raffe, but will try to control myself. As for Penryn and Raffe… Raffe is not my type. View all 75 comments. Warning, warning: I also get a bit of an attitude when a book makes me overjoyed, so be forewarned.
I'm a little sassy. This book just makes me feel so incredibly happy inside that I just can't help expressing myself. When I finished this book I basically did this: Yes, I fainted from sheer happiness and then got up and danced. Ya got a problem with that? I think that you all know that one book that you always wish fo Warning, warning: I think that you all know that one book that you always wish for, especially after you read a total shit-fest like Twilight, Halo, Hush Hush, Unleashed, basically many mainstream novels that just have everything.
And I mean the works, dammit. A badass girl who can take care of herself, a hot I know we all say that looks aren't everything, but, come on, there's always a small part of us that wants a guy who looks like sex on a stick guy who not only has the looks, but the personality and smarts to back it up, action, a plot that makes you beg for more every single page, and a relationship that you can actually look at and go, "God dammit that's real love!
This is a great book to read whether you just came off of a streak of bad books, this is a great book to read if you were reading a lot of good books, this is just a great book to read whenever the fuck you want to. And how much does this book of amazingness cost on site site? Am I telling you that you want to read this? I'm telling you that you need to read this, and here's why: Our main female character, Penryn. Angelfall is set in a post apocalyptic world where, six weeks ago, angels have come and delivered the, "day of reckoning.
It's a very interesting dichotomy that really highlights Penryn as a whole; because she's kind of like that herself. She still has some of the same dreams and values as before, but other things have changed so drastically that she can't help but be forever changed by all this; acquire some of that ugly, more savage, side of human nature.
Let me tell you more about this badass chick: Penryn, our main character, who is a seventeen year-old girl just trying to survive with a crippled seven year-old sister which her mother may or may not have caused , and a paranoid sociopath of a mother.
(ebook) Angelfall Trilogy
Now you would think that she would be incredibly sad and mope in the novel about how much her life sucks, but she doesn't. She just wants to survive to see the next sunrise. She's blunt about her mom and her problems; really she's pretty blunt about everything that's happening in her life. She tells it like it is and even has a kind of dry humor about how upside-down her whole life is. And I must say that it's kind of really badass of her when she says stuff like this: Who are you talking to?
The baffled look the angel shoots at the door makes me chuckle. Here's some more of that dry humor of hers that I love so much: That calls for a witty comeback. Penryn also embraces the insanity of how her world has become, because she knows that if she doesn't accept this new world where down is up and up is down she will go insane.
There's a scene where she finds a man whom her mom had stuck seven knives into his chest and had " purposely missed his heart, and he will slowly bleed to death.
This is what Penryn says after: If we had been back in the old world, in the World Before, I would have called an ambulance despite the fact that he had attacked my mother. The doctors would have fixed him up, and he would have had all the time he needed to recover in jail.
But unfortunately for all of us, this is the World After. I step around him and leave him to his slow death. Although that's horribly gruesome which is think is kind of awesome; this is quite the dark and creepy book and for good reason , I'm going to borrow the saying, "that's just how it is" and Penryn knows and acknowledges that. I also liked that she didn't totally despise her mother, although she had every single reason to hate her.
She still cares for her and hopes she's safe when they're separated. Towards the end, she even begins to empathize with her mom when she's put in a similar situation; in fact, this story has a lot of growth where, at the beginning, Penryn looks at things through different eyes than she does at the end. Ee does a fantastic amazing great job with her character growth. She definitely isn't the same person she once was, but I say that in the best way possible.
Her journey changed her and that's a sad rarity these days in YA. Oh, and did I also mention that Penryn is fucking badass? Because she is. First off, she has an angel sword. And if that isn't enough her mom, after Penryn and her father showed up at home one day with her standing dazed in the middle of the room with Paige, who was two at that time and laying in a crumpled heap on the floor signed her up for basically every form of martial arts what we believe is a lucid moment from her so Penryn can know how to protect herself if she attacks her.
Basically, Penryn knows how to kick ass, and kick ass hard. Again, thanks to Ee's great descriptive writing, we get many scenes where Penryn takes on many assailants and kicks ass with actual ways to kick ass.
Let me explain: The authors themselves can't visualize the fighting because they probably haven't fought a day in their life, at least not expertly, so they use the most basic verbs to give the reader just enough.
We know that they're fighting, but we can see it or feel it. But, boy, does Ee make us feel it. I've taken several self-defense classes so I know what works and what doesn't, and I think Ee took some as well because she describes and shows the same things my instructor taught us. And when you can understand it, you can visualize it, and if you can visualize it then the author has done the right thing. Here's one scene from her, and tell me that you can't at least visualize it and get your blood pumping: The trick with fighting multiple assailants is to avoid fighting them all at the same time.
I dance in a semicircle around them until the guy closest to me is in the way of the other two. I dance around to the other side of the doubled-over guy, making the others fall back into a line to get around him. The remaining guy pounces on me and we roll on the ground in a grapple for the top position. I end up on the bottom. Men tend to fight differently with a woman than they do with men.
The overwhelming majority of fights between men and women start with the men attacking from behind, and almost instantly end on the ground with the woman on the bottom. So a good female fighter needs to know how to fight on her back. As we struggle, I wriggle my leg out from under him for leverage. Then tip him over to one side with a twist of my hip.
He flips onto his back. Before he can get his bearings again, I slam my heel down on his groin. I kick him so hard his head whiplashes back and forth. You don't want to mess with Penryn, or else she'll fuck you up. And Ee knows what she's talking about. And the last thing I want to talk about with her is her overall personality. From what I've told you you probably thinks she's some had-ass with no emotions besides some dry humor , but she really is a kind person.
Okay, maybe "kind" isn't the right word, but she's compassionate, loyal, stubborn, and she still believes that positive things can happen. Of course she's a bit more hard and tough than she used to be, but she still has those base beliefs and also her pride in humans as a society.
Even with all the shit she's seen she still believes that we, as a race, can rise above and be the people she believes that they can be.
She still feels grief, sadness, and rage about how things once were and that the angels had no right, but she knows she can't change the past, and moves on. I love this chick. She has a mind of her own and knows how to use it. The consummate dream-boy, Raffe. I try to swim toward her but my muscles are so cold that all I can do is flail. I feel the sofa cushions being pulled out from against my back.
Then warmth envelopes me. Firm muscles embrace me from the space where the cushions used to be. I relax into the cocoon of warmth and let the sound of the rain on the roof lull me back to sleep.
They are badass killers. And I love it. Oh, and, sadly, I can't tell you too much about him because what he is and what he does is a major plot point in the story, and I really don't want to ruin this for you all that's how good Raffe and this book is.
Like I said before, Raffe is fucking sexy. Like so damn hot that I if I touched him I think my skin would sizzle damn you, Ee, for describing him so well and his royal hotness has invaded my dreams the last two nights since I've finished this book. But that is not all that he's about; in fact, if I had to put a list of his qualities that would be on the bottom. We never really know his physical age which I would range anywhere from 18 to even 21 or 22 based on the book , but all that he's done has an affect on his life and it shows.
Even knowing that he's actually mature and not a purple, immature, Daniel had me going like this: But that's not even close to his full character. He's sarcastic, witty, clever, and also blunt like Penryn: A girl like you, spending time with a warrior demigod like me. Could he be letting me have the last say? When I look back, Raffe has a smug grin on his face. I do feel a little better. He snorts. For his whole life he's hunted the nephilim monsters that come from a woman and an angel consummating their love, but I guess that's the thing about love; when it happens you can't get away from it.
Saying that, though, one of the best things is that although the love is there it's not the driving force of this book at all. It does what a book should do. It's not the driving force, but helps continue the plot. If anything, she does too little of it so the scenes you do get where she shows it you gobble up greedily I even have them all bookmarked.
And the love is Their relationship grows from hate to amusement to caring to feeling to loving through the whole book. It's not too rushed and it's not too slow it's just You can really tell that he loves her; even the one time he tries pushing her away is heartbreaking, and you feel the same amount of confusion and hurt that Penryn does, but you have the added benefit of knowing why he's doing it unlike finger-flipping Daniel.
He really does care for her and wants the best for her.
Most importantly, though, he doesn't try to control her; he knows she will do what she thinks is best and will try to stop her but lets her, in the end, make her own choices. There's one scene at the very end that will break your heart, but he does the same thing there and I loved it. This is a real, adult, loving, and so incredibly emotional relationship. They work together as a team with respect for one another.
Ee is basically the first author that I've seen who has effectively created this kind of relationship, and I give her all kind of praise and admiration for it. Oh, and I find it horribly hilarious and awesome that Raffe is agnostic. Just so ya know. All in all, this book has a fantastic plot. It chugs along at a fantastic pace and always leaves you needing wanting more.
The action, like I showed above, is badass and the overall theme and character development of Penryn is superb. It's a very dark book and there are some really gory and scary scenes that are, again, written superbly by Ee. She has a great sense of mixing something whimsical with something totally disgusting to make it that much more horrifying: They hang from a tree.
Not by their necks, but by ropes tied under their arms and around their chests. That would make them seven and nine. They wear what look like matching striped dresses. Most of the material has been ripped and shredded.
Whatever gnawed on their legs and torso got full before it reached their chests.
Or it was too low to the ground to reach them. The worst by far are their tortured expressions. They were alive when they were eaten. This is a book that you will still be thinking about days after, and when you think about it, isn't that what counts?
Sure, horrible books have the same affect, and those middle-of-the-road books you forget almost instantly, but those books; the simply fantastic ones that leave you shocked, dragged from one emotion to another, and wanting the next book so badly by the end that it hurts? Ee brings back angels to the badass level that was so horribly decimated by authors like Kate, Adornetto, and Fitzpatrick. And that, in my opinion, is awesome.
Sorry, I still had some extra freak-out left. But, seriously, pick up this book! It's only 99 cents and probably should be worth twenty dollars. Honestly, I want to support this author and have as many people downloading this book as I can, because after that ending I need another one.
What have you got to lose? Nothing, that's what. Angelfall is honestly one of mine, maybe even my favorite book of , and I do not give out that compliment lightly. View all 67 comments. This book rocked my socks. The dialogue. View all 5 comments.

Penryn's sister is captured by angels who've brought war and apocalypse to the human world. She finds an angel to help her retrieve her sister and they embark on a journey to get his wings back and rescue the young girl.
Simple, right? That's what I thought too. I thought I was just embarking on a ridiculous bandwagon that was being indulgent of an unusually good indie fic. There are one or two issues I have with the novel but they are completely eclipsed by the brilliant story telling, characters and writing. I loved Penryn so completely; believed in her and championed her. This book is a brilliant journey of great character and spirit.
Full of the weird and wonderful. Ee has a great imagination and a gift for story telling. I know after I finish writing this review I will go and hunt down my next read. Yet I will get increasingly aggravated and depressed because nothing I see is what I want.
Because what I want is Angelfall 2 and none of those books will be that. Go ahead.
Jump on the bandwagon. After all, you too could be waking up tomorrow wishing desperately that reality would just give you a little more time in this world, and with these characters, that Ee has created. This review also appears on my blog: View all 40 comments. Susan Ee, I salute you.
Please do mankind a favor and send a copy of your book to every author who has ever written a book about angels - maybe they'll finally understand that they're not going about it right.
You are. This is how you write a book about angels. This is how you write a post-apocalyptic book. This is how you write a kick-ass heroine. This is how you write a gut-wrenching romance. This is how you write a torn family. This is how every book deserves to be written. Angel Susan Ee, I salute you. Angelfall begins in a post-apocalyptic realm where angels have taken over the Earth and are ravaging and destroying everything.
Penryn, caught up in a raging battle for survival, must take care of her crippled seven-year-old sister and her mother who is bordering on the verge of complete lunacy. When Penryn witnesses the cruel ripping apart of an angel's wings, in what she can only guess to be violent angel politics, she is thrust under the spotlight of these inhumane beings. Now, her sister has been kidnapped and her only hope of finding her is Raffe, the angel whose wings she just witnessed being brutally cut off.
The two strike an unlikely compromise, but the world where Penryn lives is teeming with danger and finding her sister may put more on the line than Penryn originally believed From the moment you crack open the spine of Angelfall, Susan Ee doesn't give you a moment to breathe.
This is a story that completely sucks you in, keeping you frantically flipping the pages for more.
What is Kobo Super Points?
Ee's writing is beautiful, flowing with such talent that it is surprising this is a self-published novel. Furthermore, Penryn's voice is refreshing, strong, and driven. She has quickly become one of my favorite female protagonists of all time and I found myself warming up to her stubborn will, dedication to her family, loyalty to her friends, and vulnerability all at once.
Penryn, like so many characters before her, must hold the weight of her family on her shoulders, but she does it in a way that makes you immediately sympathize and admire her. Her mother, who is single-handedly responsible for putting her seven-year-old sister in a wheelchair, is far from stable and my heart broke over just how quickly Penryn must have had to grow up and assume the role of adult. Their relationship is a rocky one at best, but it is original, unique, and I find myself hoping against hope that it improves.
Although Penryn was a completely kick-ass and self-reliant protagonist, she was no match for Raffe, the warrior angel. Raffe is self-assured, witty, and gorgeous - everything you can expect from a typical male protagonist right? Raffe is a much deeper character than any usually featured in Young Adult novels and I fell for him - hard. Raffe has a long and mysterious past, which I am yearning to find out more about, but he is also compassionate, loyal, caring, trustworthy, and sweet beyond measure.
His relationship with Penryn progresses slowly, steadily building up in a way that simply increased the passion between them. The romance in no way detracted from the pounding pace of the plot and took a glorious backseat, but it was present and subtle and beautiful all the same. It's the type of romance that leaves so much more imagination, for interpretation, and for growth that I couldn't not envy Ee's easy way of incorporating it into the tale. Susan Ee honestly makes writing look flawless.
I couldn't find a single complaint, a single plot hole, a single something I didn't like about this book - and I'm a picky reader. This is hands down one of the best books I've read this year. It has everything you could possibly want in it: Ee doesn't gloss over the ugly aspects of human nature and the desperate means people resort to live by - if anything, her descriptions of these events only add to increase my respect for her and my love for this story.
If you haven't picked up Angelfall yet, then stop everything you're doing and go pick it up now. I surprised myself by finishing this in a matter of hours and I am more than tempted to order this online and read it again once it arrives at my doorstep. In fact, I probably will. I need more Raffe in my life ; Either way, I will be amongst the first people to get my hands on this sequel when it comes So what are you still doing reading this?

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.

It has gone as high as being 48 in the bestseller list for site Dark Fantasy and somewhere in the 50's for site Fantasy Series. It's currently ranked 1 in top rated site Dark Fantasy, 1 in top rated site Fantasy Series, gone as high as 1 in site's hot new dark fantasy releases and 7 in site's hot fantasy series new releases. But it's also fallen off these lists all together, with some of them coming back and some of them not.
site app. Thanks for the info, Susan! And, again, Welcome! I'll keep the thread open this weekend, in case any stragglers pop by. Well - that's not the only reason I would love to read it. I'm a vamp girl from WAY back, but lately some of the ways authors have tried to break away from the "typical" vamp have just been plain silly. I've really enjoyed reading about other types of supernatural beings lately. Angels are becoming a new favorite of mine and I have been actively seeking them out!
I don't have an ereader, so I guess if I actually win a copy I'll be downloading that free site app! Thanks for the link. Jun 24, Raffe is a warrior who lies brok It's been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world.
