Penryn. Here is a 17 year old girl taking care of her 7 yr old paralyzed sister and her mentally challenged mother in a post apocalyptic atmosphere. She has the weight of the world on her shoulders but she doesn't complain or falter. She does what needs to be done to take care of her family.
Yes. It pulled me in from the beginning. It wasn't like some books with a teenage main character. Penryn is more of an adult than her mother. She's had to be.She is strong but not too strong that it wouldn't be believable.
The author did a very good job blending in all aspects of the story. You have angels, demons, humans, and monsters and it's all believable.
I enjoyed the story and didn't want it to end. I can't wait for the next one. Will definitely pick it up. Even though there isn't any physical romance there is some serious chemistry between Penryn and Rafe. This book didn't really end, so I'll be waiting to see what happens as the story continues in the next book.
Love listening to books!
Kudos Susan Ee for creeping me out in the middle of the night with this book. I loved the horror elements in here and wasn't expecting it. As your average dystopia novel goes this one has far more genuinely horrifying moments! As plots go I thought I would be tired to the "ye ol angel" thing, but surprisingly it was pretty refreshing. I do get tired of the "revenging angel god" genre, but I think its just me. This book also has some nice moments of humor in Penryn's inner monologue constantly second guessing herself. The plot was fast paced and creepy. I was able to finish this book very quickly. Can't wait to find out what happens in the next!
PS If your interested in Angelfall check out the 5th Wave by Rick Yancy!!!! It is a must read if you like the creepy YA dystopia novels!
I love all R.A.Salvatore books!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would say listening to this book is so so much better then reading it ... Great job narrating Caitlin Davies
Reader first, Author second.
2nd only behind the coldest girl in coldtown
Wow, really? Raffe. Because he's Raffe.
I cried when Raffe thought she was dead.
This is a great book!!! :)
I've had this in my Kindle library for a while, and started listening to the audio version on a recent roadtrip. I tore through it in two days. Ee knows how to write a gripping story, and the main character is a kick-ass, strong girl. Davies does a great performance as well, with lots of inflection and feeling. Highly recommend.
Absolutely - the story is so intriguing
When Raphie carries Penryn to the resistance truck.
A Must See
I never could figure out if this was an apocalypse book or a post-apocalypse book. It's been six weeks since the angels of the apocalypse came down to demolish the world and they were still creating havoc, although the humans are starting to fight back. This was the story of Penryn and Rafe, an injured angel without his wings, journeying through a changed world to find Penryn's sister and Rafe to try to get his wings put back on. There are some good scenes and you want to know what happens, but a lot of the book is repetitive where they get in danger and out of danger over and over again, just the scene changes.
This book is awesome!! I can not wait for the next one to come out. I absolutely love the main character Penryn. She is amazingly strong and smart. I recomend this book to anyone who like strong main characters.
