Summary (Goodreads):

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 seventeen-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 she’ll risk everything to rescue her sister and he’ll put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.


My Thoughts:

I underestimated this book. I thought this was just another angel novel. It was an angel novel. But it's 10x much better (don't get me wrong, but I just read one angel novel--series, to be exact)--and this one is much better than the other one I read (where I thought it was great).

This is not cheesy, all after love kind of angel novel--though it also has romance, which by the way, is so good--unlike the other angel book I read. This has more angst and thrill and heart-pounding and exciting scenes. You wouldn't know what happened next and you'll want more and more.

I thought this was just a standalone novel until I checked it out again on Goodreads, it became a series--I saw that there will be two more books. And I totally would agree with the sequel because of the ending of this one. It shouldn't end that way. There must be something more. More Penryn-Raffe. And I would totally look forward for it.

A movie-adaptation worthy.


YA, dystopian lovers. Who someone who's looking for a great angel novel--I'd swear that this is more greater than the others. Highly recommended!

Book cover comment/s:

So metallic. Best describes the world of the end of the days.
