Angelfall Book Review

Angelfall (Penryn and the End of Days, #1) - Susan Ee

“I never thought about it before, but I'm proud to be human. We're ever so flawed. We're frail, confused, violent, and we struggle with so many issues. But all in all, I'm proud to be a Daughter of Man.”

 

This book has been sat on my self for about 8yrs give or take, so the only hope or expectation is that I would still enjoy like I would have in my early 20s. This book came out back when vampires and werewolves were at their peak but for some reason, out of the supernatural squad angels didn't quite make it up there.

 

So the plot, this book starts six weeks after the Angels came to earth and unleashed the apocalypse, nobody knows why. All they do know is that life is now about survival, surviving the street gangs during the day and the Angels at night. The story picks up with Penryn, her mum and her sister attempting to flee from their home, but are interrupted by a bunch of brawling Angels. Penryn makes a split second decision, she causes a distraction to give her mum time to run with her sister. When the feathers settle her wheelchair bound sister is snatched up.

 

Penryn has little options, she chooses to help the injured Angel Raffe and make a bargain with him in the hopes of rescuing her sister. Penryn is a likeable character, you won't find her wallowing in self pity or crying every minute. She's had a lot on her shoulders from a young age, her sister had the accident which lead to her being in the wheelchair, her dad is gone and her mum has series mental health issues. The kind that result in bodies. Penryn has one goal, not the fate of the mankind, but keep her family together and keep her mum safe.

 

This is a solid read and I really enjoyed it, things took a much darker turn towards the end and I found myself physically cringing away at times. It did feel a bit like a lot of information suddenly got thrown my way, but there was no way we could have come across it until we got to Angels nest. Going forward it will be interesting to see what's really going on with the Angels, there are clearly bad guys lurking and it's more than just the apocalypse.

 

Something darker is coming, and it's leaving half eaten bodies in its wake.
