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
    "it's just silly"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think teenage girls interested in a shallow budding relationship with a supernatural being might like this.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'll re-listen to butcher bird: a novel of the dominion by richard kadrey again.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Caitlin Davies?

    No, but that's under the presumption she'll be reading more of this type of romance.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Angelfall?

    the parts where the lead character starts to fall for the angel.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "One of the best in the genre"
    Any additional comments?

    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!

    Highly recommend!

    "Not at all what I was expecting!"
    Where does Angelfall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Caitlin Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not from my knowledge.

    "Love this book"
    Where does Angelfall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would rank this as number one. I like the narration and have listened to this many times since getting the audiobook.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Angelfall?

    I have many but I really like the interaction between Raffe and Penryn.


    What does Caitlin Davies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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?

    "Interesting premise"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Angelfall to be better than the print version?

    Since I have more time to listen than read, I get more enjoyment from the audio.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    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.

    If you could sum up Angelfall in three words, what would they be?

    Dark, amazing, unbelievable


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What about Caitlin Davies’s performance did you like?

    Love her, she made the characters really come alive.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    To save her sister, she must alliance herself with the enemy


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Penryn


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending

    Where does Angelfall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Penryn of course. She is a girl that is strong and much older than her age.


    Have you listened to any of Caitlin Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. But the voice was good.

    "First, I bought the Kindle version..."

    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..
