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)
Whats to tell I am your avarage 30something, with kids, a husband, job and life. Besides that I drive a lot and love to listen to books instead of the radio. I will stay up until 3am in bed listening if the book is worth it, and I have also been known to return a couple of books that I could not get threw the first chapter. I am a bad speller so I apoligize for it now, but will be honest about my reviews.
usaually it is demons, vamps, dragons, witches, elfs, faries, werewolves and other super natural creatures that have caught my attention. this was the first angel book I listened to and it was great. I am not hooked on angels also. I loved the story and the characters were very intresting and full of layers. recommend. Credit well spent.
Avid reader through college now with no time to read. Audiobooks saved my life!
So yes, according to this book, angels are the new vampires. What this story lacks in build up it makes up for in great action and some suspense.
When I first started this book I thought I must have missed something because it seems more like the 2nd book in a series than the first. There is almost no explanation of why things are the way they are or why angels are terrorizing our world but they are... and it's pretty cool.
The pacing is good as are the characters (once we finally learn about them). If you liked Hunger Games, Twilight or any of the other in that genre, you'll probably like this human/angel love/action story.
This was just a filler book until I decided what series from my wish list I would start but I really liked it and will make sure to seek out the 2nd when it's released.
I enjoyed the narrators voice, made the story come alive.
It was original, unpredictable, super hot angel, scary.
She gave me the feeling that I was with Penryn listening to her.
Most definitely - I listened to this book on a 16hr road trip with my hubby and kids and I don't think I talked to them once in the 8 hrs & 44 mins.
It was an original refreshing story, something different that had me riveted from beginning to end. Totally fell in love with Raffe - gotta always love a good bad boy. It had everything - action, romance, suspense, surprises, twists and villains you love to hate - totally engrossing. I can't wait for the sequel, can't recommend it enough.
