Publisher's Summary

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 17-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 Penryn will risk everything to rescue her sister, and Raffe will put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.

What the Critics Say

"Ee’s debut novel is a promising opener to what looks to be a YA series worth following, one that explores what it means to be human and what it means to be a hero." (Locus Magazine)

    Story
    "A quality YA"
    What made the experience of listening to Angelfall the most enjoyable?

    The world is very well written, and breathes and feels like the real thing. The author starts things off quick, but there is no skimping on setting up the characters, the world, the motivations.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Penryn is fantastic as the lead. She's alive and driven, and has plenty of flaws to keep things interesting. Her timid yet fierce nature is very much alive.

    Am a book reader who have to many books and to little time to read them. I love humor, slow burn romance, and fast pace story.

    "More Please"
    What did you love best about Angelfall?

    I loved the story and how it was more an adventure then a romance not many books do that and it was nice surprise. it had everything that I love in books humor, traveling, and a smartass character.


    What other book might you compare Angelfall to and why?

    I can't think of one which isn't a bad thing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the camp is one of my favorite part and that's for the twins. they remind me so much of the Weasley twins that I laughed every time they where mentioned. Also when Penryn got it that fight with that jerk was awesome.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but unfortunately sleep usually wins in the end.


    Any additional comments?

    if you enjoy humorous books about fallen angels, apocalypse, survival, revenge, and not speedy love then you need to read this book.

    "ANGELFALL WONDERFUL"

    I really like this book. Sure kept me wondering what, when and where things would develop into. I was doubtful when I started the book, but when it finished I could not wait to start the second book, to see what would happen next. The only thing I would like, is a mans voice for the man, two readers would be nice.

    "And there were angels..."

    I was a bit leery of getting this because it's classified as a YA novel. I've enjoyed some, but others are a bit angst-y for me. I thoroughly enjoyed this and half wondered if it was inspired by the TV show, "Supernatural."

    The characters are well rounded and enjoyable. The story also was a decent adventure.

    Story
    "I never knew what was going to happen next."
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Horrifically Fantastic!"
    Any additional comments?

    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!
