It's been six weeks since the angels of the apocalypse destroyed the world as we know it. Only pockets of humanity remain. 
Savage street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. 
When angels fly away with a helpless girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back...

I seriously don’t know why it’s taken me so long to finally read Angelfall.  I bought the book over a year ago after a friend raved about how good it was.  Since then, it sat on my shelf and FINALLY after the second book, World After came out last week, I decided to read it.  Now I’m kicking myself in the butt for not reading it sooner!

Angels have descended upon Earth and have caused complete chaos and almost the extinction of mankind.  Penryn, her mother and little sister Paige have managed to survive for weeks after the angels declared war on earth, but having to care for a younger sister who is in a wheelchair and a mother who is schizophrenic while being chased by killer angels isn’t easy.  Not to mention all the humans that are desperate for food and shelter and will do anything for the little bit of goods other have.  Then one night, she sees some angels fighting.  They seem to be attacking an angel with beautiful white wings and he’s losing the fight, especially when they cut off his wings.  In all that, Penryn ends up helping the white wing angel by giving him his sword to even the fight.  Big mistake because as a retaliation, the other angels fly up and take her little sister.  Penryn’s heart is shattered.  So she decided to help the angel in order to find out where the other angels have taken her sister.

I really like Penryn’s character.  She is a fighter and a go-geter.  I honestly don’t think I could survive in a world like that, so kudos to her for kicking some angel and demon butt! I love the chemistry between Penryn and Raffe, the white winged angel.  Raffe is sarcastic and I love it! I’m not too sure about Penryn’s mom.  I feel like there is more to her then what we hear about in Angelfall.  Maybe we can find out more in World After. 


  1. I have only heard amazing things about this book. I am glad that you enjoyed it. I just realized that it is a free book with an amazon prime membership, so I have no excuse not to read it. :)

  2. I loved this book. I liked the world the author created, though I'd be dead in it.

    Looking forward to reading the next one.
