This week’s Book Spotlight will feature Young Adult Paranormal/Fantasy/Sci-fi:
I really enjoyed Angelfall! The theme of the novel was a lot darker than I am used to reading, and sometimes I would get so creeped out that I had to stop reading. It definitely shed a darker light on angels, as opposed to the light, bright, and goodness they are usually associated with. Angelfall is a great novel. Just a heads up, it contains unexpected plot twists, and a slight cliffhanger.
Book Title: Angelfall
Author: Susan Ee
Originally Published: May 21st, 2011
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.
