“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’d seen a lot about Angelfall all over the place for the last few years and I always meant read it but I never got around to it. But when I received a copy of Angelfall and the sequel from NetGalley, I finally got around to reading it. And I’m very glad that I did.
Right from the beginning, this book hooked me in and never let go. It was so fast paced and I couldn’t put it down. The writing style was so wonderful. It read almost like a contemporary and I was able to speed right though it in just a couple of sittings.
The world building was so amazing. There was no info dumping and everything was so well explained. And everything made sense. I also found it to be really realistic and it felt really believable.
I loved Penryn! She’s such a well written character. She kicked so much butt but she was also really caring.
I really loved how Angelfall was about Penryn and her mission to get her sister back. It wasn’t about her and Raffe. It wasn’t about romance or love. The whole book focused on Penryn.
Overall, I loved everything about this book. From the world building to the characters, I loved every single thing. I could go on and on about how well written and interesting the characters are. It’s extremely rare for me to marathon a series or even read books in the same series back to back but I’m starting World After right away. Angelfall is by far the best angel book I’ve ever read and one of my favorites of the year. If you haven’t read this book yet, I highly recommend it.
