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.
I picked this one up based on a recommendation and I have to say that I really hope that you do the same! It is flat-out amazing. The world building is incredible, and despite the insane post-apocalyptic scenario, it was totally believable. And Penryn is spot-on. It helps that I've been to the places she describes enough times to really see it in my mind, but that's just the half of it. It's just really well done. Can you tell I'm gushing here? Seriously, go check this one out!
