-- Finalist for Cybils Bloggers' Award for Best YA Fantasy & Sci-fi Book of the Year 2011-- 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. Recommended for ages 16 and above. REVIEWS: "YA series worth following" - Locus Magazine, March 2012 "unique and gripping… strong themes and beautiful writing made Angelfall an easy favorite." - Cybils Awards, 2011 Finalist for Best YA Fantasy & Science Fiction Book of the Year "I started and read non stop until the last page....All I can say is when does book 2 come out?" - Dear Author "literally took my breath away, get it, live it, love it…and pass it on." - Kindle Obsessed "Ultimately, this is one of the best, if not the best, book I have read in 2011. I can’t recommend it enough." - The Happy Booker "The plot is like a Master's study in pacing, with the last 40 pages making my heart race, flipping through those virtual pages like a Pavlovian monkey, pushing the button for more crack." - Sift Book Reviews

Angels as the messengers from god and as awe-ful and awful as they are in accounts, and they're not fluffy but killers who are in a war they're not explaining with people who are caught in the crossfire, regarding normal humans as monkeys. Before this Penryn had problems, a disabled sister and a mo...
I was told I should read this series because it has everything I thought Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke & Bone series lacked. And it does, sort of. Plenty of action that doesn't happen offstage and minimal tragi-romantic mooning, for example. And I enjoyed this first book. I did. But to be honest,...
Rereading this book was great. I still like the concept and the world. Penryn can annoy me at times. She does stupid things and at times her stupidity is just pointless. I can't wait to finally finish this trilogy.
Deze recensie is als eerste geplaatst op Carpe Libra Penryn & Het Einde der Dagen... is de tekst die op de achterkant staat zeer zeker waard: Angelfall veroorzaakte een ware sensatie op Goodreads.com met een recordaantal recensies. Nu, na het lezen begrijp ik waarom al die mensen zo lyrisch zijn o...
