by Susan Ee
I….I have no words for this book.. I mean, i couldn’t stop reading it until i was finished, and then i was pissed that i finished it so fast!You literally get… in a way, obsessed.. it’s that good! Susan Ee is a genius! The way she writes.. it’s like your seeing the things in your head while reading. Laughing when the characters laugh, scared when they are, angry when they are.. ect. You’re literally with them every step of the way. If you do not like this book.. then read it again! xp That is my advice, because you can not not love this book!
This story begins with Penryn, her sister Paige and their mother hiding from their enemies, the angels and the dangerous street gangs. Hiding ain’t easy when Penryn’s sister is in a wheelchair and her mom is crazy.. And on top of all that, she needs to find food for them to survive, which ain’t easy cause it’s all destroyed or taken. One night they leave the security of their hiding place to find a new one, and ends up in the middle of a fight between angels. The fight ends with one angel laying broken and wingless on the stree, Paige kidnaped by the other angels, their mother disappears, and Penryn helping the fallen angel. The angel, wingless or not, is Penryn’s only hope at getting her sister back. Tending his wounds, hiding his sword, wings and finding out his name is Raffe, Penryn makes it perfectly clear that he is going to help her. + They are going the same way anyway.. So then the journey starts. They meet quiet a few suprises. Meeting many dangerous people, fighting and running to survive, Penryn has to put her trust in Raffe, because he has eons of fighting skills. Together, they travel toward the angel’s stronghold in San Francisco, where Raffe might get his wings back, and Penryn, to get her sister back.
Let’s talk about Raffe. Ohh noo! Ammmh, i mean the main character, Penryn Young. Now that’s a strong willed girl. I both loved and admired her. She’s adorable, she’s the perfect sister and a great daugther! (Even though her mother might not know it/understand it) Penryn’s got a great spirit and enegry, and she never gives up! She has a heart full of kindness and compassion, yet she’s not weak. Definitely not weak! She’s what you can call a fighter. A fighter who fights for the people she love, no matter what!
Raffe… Hmmm.. Dangerous, sexy, arrogant, delicious fallen angel, Raffe. Damn him for being so freaking perfect! And the worst part of it? Im pretty sure he know it as well.. Raffe is just the way he is, and i wouldn’t want him any other way! Let’s just be honest, im in love with the angel.. Eons old, fighting his own battles, a warrior all through. With his snarky sexy ass mouth and that lovely body of his, he pretty much rockes our world. He’s a real mistery, is you ask me. Very dominant, strong and smart. Raffe is determined to get his wings back, even if he have to put himself at the mercy of his enemies and put up with Penryn on the journey to get himself there. Though he seems a bit suprised that Penryn’s company ain’t the worst he could get stuck with…
I literally can not wait for the next book! For the journey to continue, for what will happen to Penryn and Raffe. I Feel like im dying slooowly while waiting.. Let’s just say, i HATE waiting! So i hope November 19th comes fast!!
