Can Penryn's life get any worse?
Aside from the hard to spell name, Penryn lives in an apocalyptic world where fallen angels have taken over. Finding food is her number priority, aside from babysitting her little sister Paige and a mother with dementia. And then one day things get worse. Paige gets kidnapped by angels and the only way to save her is by joining Raffe, a fallen angel with freshly cut wings. Can these two put aside their differences and help one another before it's too late?
Angelfall is packed with strong characters. Even the mother who is ill, has enormous will power. Instead of just focusing on the love/hate tension between Raffe and Penryn, Susan Ee adds an interesting subplot about why the angels desire to claim children, leading the novel to a promising series.
Looking forward to reading the sequel.
