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)
Such a good story. Read a few angle books and this one is surprisingly different. Not a love story. But a story of loyalty and survival. Definitely will read next in series.
I love how Angelfall keeps your attention from beginning to end. It's an intense story that keeps you involved with the characters. The first person characterization is spot on, and I give the narrator a 4 of 5 - there's potention there even if it wasn't the best performance, it was still very good1
I loved the vivid imagery. The descriptions bring you into the story.
More emotion in the performance! She wasn't monotone, but it was a bit flat.
When the angels come, will you survive?
Say something about yourself!
She is a great voice for the main character and adds a new dimension to the story
Some words that Caitlin pronounces were different and drew my attention. Most specifically, it almost sounded like she added a "t" at the end of the word "even." Not a hard t, more like a glottal stop. She also tended to pause at strange places in sentences where there were not necessarily any commas. I can only assume she did this to maintain some sort of cadence in her reading, but at times it was very noticeable and got on my nerves.
Pretty interesting book, never heard of author and don't typically read these types of books but I enjoyed it and have purchased all.
This is my first Post Apocalyptic novel, and I loved it so much. The first tried I read it, I couldn't for the life of me get into it that I had to put it down. I'm so happy that I decided to give it an second try. Now, I cannot wait to read the next book of the series.
I'm not really an angel fan, bring an agnostic, but heard the story was good so listened to it. For YA with impulsive emotions but still good with romance developing. Very good performance by the narrator ( so sorry I forget her name).
