book review

Angelfall by Susan Ee

Goodreads SynopsisIt’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.


I read this in 2012 and went into this with high expectations. The idea was intriguing and there was never a dull moment, but something just always seemed off to me.

Penryn is your typical YA sassy heroine, and Raffe was your typical brooding male who tried to push the girl away… But hey! At least there wasn’t a love triangle!

The angel nightclub was weird. Truthfully, all angel books are weird to me (same goes for tv show Supernatural). Despite the things that annoyed me, Angelfall was fast paced and entertaining. The world was very dark and the fighting scenes were bloody. But like I said above, something just seemed off to me. I do still recommend it, since some of the things that happened are creepy and unique.
