Additional Details

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.

imaginative read

picked up this book quite by accident and I'm glad I did. This book is a fun and exciting journey through a post apocalyptic world where angels have brought about the end of days. Along the way a young girl named Penryn meets an angel who she has to work with to save her little sister from dark angels. Fun summer reading!

Strange

Interesting premise with a very strange follow-through. Surprisingly grotesque sometimes, as if with an intention to shock. The relationship between Penryn and her little sister feels a little like the relationship between Katniss (of Hunger Games) and Prim, and Penryn's mentally ill mother bears a faint character resemblance to Katniss' mother, but by the end of the book I think the similarities disappear and Angelfall starts to become its own book.
