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.

"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)
Disturbing, Riveting, Intense
unlike most fantasy books I have read
pretty much every fight "scene"
Kept me cheering for Penryn Raphael & Paige on their journey.
I think teenage girls interested in a shallow budding relationship with a supernatural being might like this.
I'll re-listen to butcher bird: a novel of the dominion by richard kadrey again.
No, but that's under the presumption she'll be reading more of this type of romance.
the parts where the lead character starts to fall for the angel.
I've been a long time Dresden fan by Jim Butcher, more recently I've discovered writers like Richard Kadrey and Mike Carey (all are supernatural books). They all establish the worlds and the rules that govern them exceptionally well. Angelfall has the depth of season 1 of Buffy the vampire slayer which is fine and that show got much better past season 3. I just didn't care about any of the characters in angel fall. That may have had something to do with the way the reader voiced "tough guys." I went into it hoping the lead character might be less highschool and more Katniss Everdeen. Skip it.
Best post-apocalyptic romance/adventure I have read. Best angel paranormal I have read. Great YA novel.
This book stands out from other YA novels, as the main character lacks the self absorbed whining that dominate the teen female leads in the genre.
The romance in this book develops nicely, is believable and kind of charming, however, the romance doesn't dominate the action. So far (in books one and two), despite a nicely developing romance, it also lacks the teenage angst and love triangles that have made YA paranormal novels a bit too formulaic of late!
I listen to a lot of books from this genre, and sometimes it's a hit and miss for me. Definitely something worth listening to.
The main character is strong, in some cases I find that the other characters in other books are weaker. I also enjoyed the quirks of her mother.
I have not from my knowledge.
Always loved reading, now I love audio books because I can listen to my favorite books on the go!
I would rank this as number one. I like the narration and have listened to this many times since getting the audiobook.
I have many but I really like the interaction between Raffe and Penryn.
She really seems the capture the character of Penryn. Doesn't sound too old or to young with just enough spark to her voice.
I read and listen to three books a week. I can't move my car without an audio book. Is this addiction?
Since I have more time to listen than read, I get more enjoyment from the audio.
I would at least give some idea of the events leading up to this war. Reminds me of the gun slinger series from king. Nit took over ten years to get to the bottom of that one.
Dark, amazing, unbelievable
It is hard to pick the best thing about Angelfall, other than it was a very good read. If you like The Hunger Games, this is of similar but better.
Love her, she made the characters really come alive.
To save her sister, she must alliance herself with the enemy
I love this book and I'm counting the days for the second book to be released.
Yes, it was a capturing audiobook and easy to listen to. Unique storyline, nothing close to what I have come across.
Penryn finds her sister as one of the experiments, very unanticipated.
It ranks as one of my top reads. It was recommended to me by a friend and I typically don't read these type of books but I loved it and can't wait for book 2.
Penryn of course. She is a girl that is strong and much older than her age.
No. But the voice was good.
This book was a nice surprise. It was unexpected and refreshing!
It was rather late when I began the sample from Kindle. By the time I was done with it, I had to buy the book that instant. No choice! LOL! I was up reading it until 4 AM....still felt rather short, I wanted more! This was a very good read. I couldn't put it down!
Let's talk about Penryn...this is a heroine that I like. And I rarely do like the story's heroine, I might like the book and/or love the series, but I always find that the female character lacks on this or that department. In my opinion Penryn is a strong character and a likable one.
The world Susan Ee created is compelling, her characters are sympathetic and real. I fear I am not doing this book justice, but please pick it up and see for yourself. I'm sure you will enjoy every action packed page as I did. This was one of those books that you actually feel a loss when it ends. I'm already looking forward to the next book.
I can see a re-read in the near future..
