In this sequel to the bestselling fantasy thriller, Angelfall, the survivors of the angel apocalypse begin to scrape back together what’s left of the modern world.
When a group of people capture Penryn’s sister Paige, thinking she’s a monster, the situation ends in a massacre. Paige disappears. Humans are terrified. Mom is heartbroken.
Penryn drives through the streets of San Francisco looking for Paige. Why are the streets so empty? Where is everybody? Her search leads her into the heart of the angels’ secret plans where she catches a glimpse of their motivations, and learns the horrifying extent to which the angels are willing to go.
Meanwhile, Raffe hunts for his wings. Without them, he can’t rejoin the angels, can’t take his rightful place as one of their leaders. When faced with recapturing his wings or helping Penryn survive, which will he choose?
Let’s start off by saying that Susan Ee totally slayed the first book; I fell in love instantly. My review of Angelfall can be found here.
Unfortunately, I put off this book for such a long time; I think I started this book in early August and didn’t get to finish it mid-October. (I’m so sorry, Penryn and Raffe! This wasn’t supposed to happen! I just had too many books to read!) Luckily, I finished, but despite forgetting several key moments and characters, I still loved it.
First of all, Penryn’s beautiful and sarcastic voice plays such a great part in this novel; add in her badass-ery and Raffe’s total hotness, and you’ve got everything you need.
In this book, Raffe thinks Penryn is dead (read the first book, seriously) and wants to get his wings back from Beliel, who just had to replace his demon wings with Raffe’s pretty angel ones. Penryn and Raffe eventually meet up, and they make out.
Not to mention, how Paige is also super badass for a seven year old.
So, in conclusion, Susan Ee is a magical, beautiful person. Perhaps next time, I won’t spend three months reading END OF DAYS. I’m super excited.
Have you read this book? What did you think of it?
