Angelfall by Susan Ee

Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1)

Quickie Review:  3 out of 5

I enjoyed this book a lot! I’ve never read an Angel book – no wait, I have read ‘Daughter of Smoke and Bone’ but did not like it but not because of the angels. I didn’t think they’d be my thing even though I love Supernatural, and I ended up enjoying this book! I really liked the amount of mystery it gave, I like how it didn’t shy away from topics like sex, worrying about being raped and stuff like that, it was gritty and dark, something I personally rarely see in YA and it made is all feel a lot more real. Josiah was by far my favourite character! ^_^ The writing was easy, I loved the world building – especially with the club and the angel fashion aspects.

My only real negative is Peryn, I didn’t like her. Her only redeeming quality is her fighting skill but my god, she has no common sense what so ever and just made dumbass decision after dumbass decision. There is nothing good about her except the fact she can fight. I also hated how Peryn felt the need to describe Raffe body all the damn time! A 17 year old girl can think of a thousand more things before repeatidly mentioning someones body! -_- AND, I am certainly not feeling the romance. I don’t see any chemistry there at all.

A fellow GR-er pointed out and made me realised that this is the typical YA plot of ‘save the sibling’ and also, I felt a similarity to The Hunger Games where Katniss is knocked out and misses as the action -_- Yes Peryn missed out on the biggest juiciest part of the action, but I’m so glad she was still conscious for it and witnessed it – unlike Katniss -_-

There’s a lot of things intruging me about this series and so I will definitely carry on! I seriously wanna know wtf those scorpion things were! EWWW! xD
