Summary: 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.

Review
Sometimes, a story has so much action that it became boring after a while. This is the case with Angelfall.

In Angelfall, after someone killed an angel, the entire angel army descended on Earth to seek vengeance. Earth was wrecked, and most surviving humans went into hiding.

Peryn, the protagonist, rescued an angel who was getting bullied by five others, and this caused her disabled sister to be taken away by one of the five angels. She then embarked on a journey to rescue her sister- with the help of the angel she rescued.

I was hooked for the first half of the book. There was so much action and there were twists at every corner. I was practically at the edge of my seat.

Then came the second half.

The book didn’t grip me like before. Somehow, I didn’t feel much connection to the characters, the world, etc. By the middle of the book, I was skimming. I guess I got tired of all the actions.

The writing, characters, world building and plot were all decent, I’ve no issues with them. It’s just that all the actions got kind of repetitive after awhile, making the book quite dull.
