I feel like this was even better the second time because I wasn't continually wondering where the-f Raffe was.  I knew I wouldn't see him for a while.   Besides, when Raffe did hook up with Penryn, finally; it turns out it was worth the wait.  I also feel like I was able to glean more on the plot itself this second time around.   I really love these characters and loved how Caitlin Davies brought them all to life.

 

Will I continue this series⇜  I'm re-reading with Audio, the entire 3-book series --up next is End Of Days

I love Atticus. I love Thais.  And I LOVE Atticus and Thais together.  That ending gutted me.   This story terrified me…it's seems like something that could happen…all of it.  It's so f-ed up…and so amazing, especially between Atticus and Thais.  My only qualm, other than that hella cliffhanger ending is the length.  It's so freaking long, there are places where it could have been shortened up a tad and still felt completely epic.

 

Will I continue this series I cannot wait…and I have no idea how long I have to wait for it…it's not even on Goodreads, yet...which sucks.

My Thoughts

 

 

Angelfall was one of the first books I purchased and read on my kindle…I took a chance on this back in December of 2011, knowing absolutely nothing about it, I think it was priced at 99Cents and I remember thinking while I was reading this…this is really good…a lot better than the last book I had gotten (whatever that one was).  To this day, it's still the best Angel book I've ever read.  I think that's because of its unique storyline of an Angel Apocalypse.  Also, maybe a little to do with a hot brooding Angel (Raffe) and a kick-ass heroine (Penryn).

 

 

Will I continue this series?⇜  I purchased all of the audiobooks for this for 1.99 a piece because I already own the eBooks, so yeah, I'm going to read all 3.

Book Theme Song

(link will take you to my tumblr post with video)

No Matter What by Papa Roach  --Inspirational Kick-ass music is just what Amber, Rylen, Remy and Tater need.

No matter what

I got your back

I'll take a bullet for you if it comes to that

I swear to god

That in the bitter end

We're gonna be the last ones standing

 

 

 

 

 

⇝OVERALL RATING⇜

5/5 STARS

A+

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Thoughts

 

The Unknown Series has everything I want in a dystopian romance.  Amazing characters, a tenable premise, and sweet angst.  Supplemented with some kick-ass action scenes, and stellar writing, and it's damn near perfect.  My only issue with Unrest in particular, is I wanted to kick Amber and Rylan's ass; for taking so long to admit things to each other.  At least a little bit.
