So I was so glad to be able to read this right after the Angelfall because if I had to wait I would’ve been upset!

This story picks up right where Angelfall left off, which I was grateful for. Penryn and everyone else heads back to the resistance camp. From there Penryn and her family are always stared at and talked about. They’re kind of like the freaks. Her mom for being crazy, Penryn for “coming back from the dead” and Paige for all the scars she has. It’s sad to read about.

Penryn was still he275598r bad-ass self and I absolutely loved it. I really enjoyed how she didn’t go out searching for Raffe. You know how in other books, when the love interests gets separated they go crazy and can think about nothing besides getting back to them. That wasn’t the case here. She thought about Raffe of course, but she didn’t run out to try and find him. She was focused on her sister, and other survivors.

Raffe, who was missing for the majority of the book, spent most of his time tracking down Beliel to get his wings back. And I don’t blame him. Beliel is a douche, who doesn’t deserve to have those wings. I would hunt him down if that was me.

THE REUNyas-girl-yasION! The reunion between Raffe and Penryn was absolutely amazing, and when they were finally back together I may have had the biggest smile on my face! I couldn’t help it, it was an amazing scene, and also showed Penryns bad-ass self once again when they were fighting there way out!

DeeDum, are probably the greatest side characters in this story! They’re fun, loyal, and have the best one liners. If you ask me, they needed to have A LOT more scenes. I always found myself laughing whenever they said anything.

However, the greatest thing about this story has to be Pooky Bear. The SWORD. Is it possible to be in love with an object, because I may be in love with that sword. “Bow down to Pooky Bear” OMFG!!! When Raffe finally gets to see his sword again, he can’t believe it’s disguised as a bear, atumblr_m5q43jLDJN1qbs5wend named Pooky Bear. That was probably the BEST SCENE ever. I reread it over and over and couldn’t stop laughing. But don’t let that name fool you, POOKY BEAR IS BADASS!!! I want an archangel sword. GIVE ME! GIVE ME! GIVE ME!!!!!

I want to start off this review by saying that I did try to read this book awhile back and couldn’t really get into it. However, I decided to give it another try and this time I couldn’t put this book down. I think maybe I was just in the right mood to read this book. By the way, this review will have SPOILERS!

Everything about this book was great, but I think what made me love this story so much were the characters. Each one is absolutely amazing.

Penryn, our main character is such a smart, loyal and badass character. She meets, and saves an angel named Raffe. She doesn’t want him around in the beginning, but she realizes that he may be the best chance for her to get her sister, Paige back from the angels who took her. Over the course of the book Penryn and Raffe get closer and a connection starts developing. What I love the most is that it’s not instant, and Penryn doesn’t let her feelings towards him over run her. She has one goal, to get her sister back! Penryn has definitely become one of my favorite female characters ever!

Raffe, is the gorgeous, witty, wingless angel that Penryn saves. Again, he was a character that I absolutely loved. Even without his wings, he’s badass and people still fear him. He has that look that just intimates people, but makes the woman stare in wonder.

Raff200_se and Penryns time together throughout this book was so great to read about. I loved the connection that developed, and you can sense a romance brewing but they don’t fully act on it. Which I loved because HELLO it’s an angel apocalypse. They have so much more that they should be doing such as finding Paige, and getting Raffes wings back! But don’t get me wrong, I LOVED the cute moments between them!

The thing that I loved the most would be the sword. That sword is amazing and absolutely badass. I WANT ONE! GIMME GIMME GIMME!!!

So what I didn’t enjoy about this story, well it’s not really a complaint, but just something that I found weird. The scorpion demon things. I just found those to be weird and bizarre and kind of took me out of the story a bit. But it didn’t ruin it for me.

The ending to this book was absolutely amazing and heartbreaking at the sametoo_much time. ***SPOILERSSPOILERSSPOILERS*** Penryn getting stung and Raffe thinking she’s dead. Oh my freakin lord. And him going crazy and smashing everything, then risking his life to bring her to her family, her people. OH MY…AHHHHH!!! I’m glad I didn’t have to wait to find out what happens next(yes, I already read and finished the second book.) Having to wait would’ve KILLED ME even more.
