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.

Holy bejeez Angelfall by Susan Ee is good.
I’m not going to lie: I was totally biased when I first heard that Angelfall was eBook-only and is just now getting its first printing through Amazon.
But it has a rare 4.37-star average and 1,600+ reviews on Goodreads…so I gave it a go. And, dang, I’m glad I did. That rating is spot-on! And I don’t even really like angel books!
When I texted/Gchatted at least three of my friends “YOU MUST READ THIS,” I described it as “angel book…during the apocalypse!!!” And I love me an apocalypse story. “Boy (or angel, doesn’t matter) + girl + running through the woods in order to survive” is always the perfect recipe for a slow-burning romance, and Angelfall was no exception. Um, yes, please.
Warning: CLIFFIE ALERT. OMG I NEED MORE NOW. Looks like there are up to four books more to come on this series. Whee!
