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)

    I couldn't put this down. Seriously, I devoured it. I'm hoping book 2 is just as good. November seems so far away.

    Story
    "Dark and Gritty! So Good!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Angelfall to be better than the print version?

    I'm not sure! ...I'm sure both would be amazing.


    What other book might you compare Angelfall to and why?

    Nothing can compare to this craziness in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    What the heck? Did all that just really happen? That is THE craziest ending EVER! Seriously…THAT was insane!

    When I first started Angelfall, I sensed that it might be a really dark book because it seemed very grim. And, as I got further into the story, things just got insanely crazy. Angelfall is one of those types of books that make you wonder if you’ll have crazy dreams or even nightmares after reading. But even during the most insane moments…moments that should have had me totally freaking-out…Susan Ee had a way of writing them so they weren’t quite as disturbing as they could, and probably should, have been. I haven’t figured out how these brilliant authors are able to do that, but she did it brilliantly well.

    The characters are very well done in this book. I really liked and admired the main character Penryn, and I pretty much grew attached to Raffe from the moment he was introduced. But it was Penryn’s mother who was the most fascinating. I want to know if she really is psycho, or if she really has demons controlling her. The things that woman does throughout the book are both disturbing and comical.

    There’s not much more I want to say about Angelfall other than it’s a really small book and a very quick read, I would highly recommend it and I'm dying for the next book in the series.

    Story
    "Call me "a little confused""
    Would you consider the audio edition of Angelfall to be better than the print version?

    I don't own the print version so I cannot compare the two.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was not really an ending - just a stopping point until book two can begin.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was confusing for me from the beginning. As I began listening to the story, I thought that Penryn was a young girl, maybe 12 or 13 years old. This was due to the way the story was written, her spoken parts and remembrances, and also the way it was read by the narrator. As the story progressed, she seemed to age in every way, and I don't mean by what was happening to her in the story, but the writing changed and made her more adult and grown up. The narrator's voice was also more adult and confident sounding. In contrast, the angel sounded like a totally grown man, way older than Penryn, from the beginning. I swear I thought she was all of 13 years old trying to take care of her crazy mom and little handicapped sister. But, all of a sudden, we are headed toward the forbidden attraction between angels and humans, she's putting on make-up and a slinky dress to go in a club, and there is sexual attraction. I had to really adjust in a hurry and get with the program. I am not normally a "duh" kind of person and I am convinced that I was not off in la-la land when I started listening. I'm not too sure I will rush to read/listen to the second book and I don't even know if it has been written. I am just really torn about how to review this book - not very helpful I know and I am truly sorry. The purpose behind the angels attacking humans was never really explained and there were only hints dropped as to a possible cause and that was also frustrating because there don't seem to be any good angels at all and everything that was alluded to in this book regarding angels and God and history was in no way similar to the majority of the teachings we hear/see/read these days. Also, society seemed to have fallen apart and everything stopped working in very quick order without any good explanation for why this was so. I think I would have to recommend this book only with a caution and a question mark and an additional "I'm not sure how much money/credit this book is worth" Have I read worse books? YES! Have I read better books? Definitely YES! Not awful but .......???????

    I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.

    "Brilliant!"

    Listening to this was actually a reread for me. Reread, first listen.

    Penryn is a fabulous main character. She's strong but vulnerable and hopeful yet realistic. I can't imagine going through everything she does, and she comes out on top.

    "Did I miss something?"

    Halfway through this book I still felt as if I had no idea what was going on. There was no explanation of what happened and why the world was in a shambles or what angels had to do with it. Story lines were underdeveloped and left hanging, transitions didn't always make sense.
