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.
Sigh, everyone else than I seems to have loved this book. Why it did not work for me? Oh you know me, I expected freaking amazeballs! Did I get that? Ha, no. It was the same old same old.
Girl who is so awesome and pretty when she puts an effort, meets OMG SEXY angel who is so freaking sexy that you will drool to that. Said angel does not like mousy girl, but then she puts on a sexy dress and he goes all wow! If you weren't a human I would totally do you!
So hot angel and awesome girls becomes unlikely allies as they go to the big bad angels to save her sister. And of course sexy angel is hunted by his own kind, and I guess his so called friends are too busy to find him.
There will be danger, thinking about hot Sexy angel is, and more danger. But fear no, awesome girl knows how to fight.
There is NO worldbuilding. Angels attacked..ok, and? Nothing. But fear not, Not even Sexy Angel knows. Yeah but I want to know! The world needs building and explaining.
Like, why do the angels attack Sexy angel and speak English while doing so?
Sure angels are awesome, but they can still die. How did the world fall apart? Oh wait, right worldbuilding, there is none, duh.
It had interesting parts, but sorry, this girl needs answers and not a book about a girl seeing a Sexy angel and blah blah blah.
