Goodreads Description: 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.
This book has me beyond confused. I honestly don’t really know how to rate this book. It took me 10 minutes to just give it a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars. It’s taken me a year to finish this book. I love reading books with angels and so when I first heard of this book almost a year ago and that it had a different spin on angels, I bought it immediately. At first it started off slow, but eventually, it sped up. The whole time, I imagined Raffe as Patch from the Hush, Hush series, but less of a jerk. I found the writing to be kind of awkward.
Needless to say, I really did enjoy the book. I liked the world building and the story. I’m really loving Raffe. He’s the strong and silent type and I really want to know a lot about him. I also would like to know more about Penryn’s mother. I want to know how she got to the state that she is in. I just want to know more, so I’ll definitely be picking up the second book.
