Synopsis:

End of Days is the explosive conclusion to Susan Ee’s bestselling Penryn & the End of Days trilogy. After a daring escape from the angels, Penryn and Raffe are on the run. They’re both desperate to find a doctor who can reverse the twisted changes inflicted by the angels on Raffe and Penryn’s sister. As they set off in search of answers, a startling revelation about Raffe’s past unleashes dark forces that threaten them all.

When the angels release an apocalyptic nightmare onto humans, both sides are set on a path toward war. As unlikely alliances form and strategies shift, who will emerge victorious? Forced to pick sides in the fight for control of the earthly realm, Raffe and Penryn must choose: Their own kind, or each other?

Review:

I laughed, cried, fell madly in love, become utterly terrified and was even beyond ecstatic.  I loved these characters.  I loved how the story evolved throughout the series.  BUT I hated how I was left with SO many unanswered questions.  On top of that, I hated how it ended abruptly in the middle of a scene.  Both of those aspects pained my heart.  So I found myself closing the book and just staring at the wall wandering through my thoughts.  Because one on hand, I loved everything else about this story, yet that epilogue left so much to be desired for.  Ultimately my love for Penryn, Raffe, and so many of the other characters allowed me to place this series on my favorites list, which I don’t take lightly.   But I know that years down the road I will still wish that I was given more after that breathtaking journey.

So here’s what I struggled with (a little reiterating here lol):

Happily For Now – While HFNs are okay, I will always prefer a HEA over them.  The end of the book stops right in the middle of a scene, so I was left wishing that there were still a few more chapters to read.

Too Many Unanswered Questions – This could have easily been a 5 Star book.  But that ending left so much to be desired for.  I was crushed that I had so many unanswered questions, even  questions that I’ve had since the first book.  I listed all my unanswered questions in the spoiler below.  I’m sure I’ll eventually think of more, since these are the ones that easily rolled off of the top of my head.  Btw don‘t click this spoiler if you haven’t read the final book, there are HUGE spoilers:

View Spoiler »

See, that’s a TON of unanswered questions.  That’s why I docked what should have easily been a 5 Star book.  Too much was left unanswered, or was left not mentioned.  Was it an easy way out?  I don’t know.

But here’s what I loved:

“Since when did you become so protective?”
“Since my enemies have determined that you’re my Daughter of Man.”
I swallow. My throat is dry.

Sexual tension – This whole trilogy was laced with sexual tension, but the of End of Days gave me exactly what I wanted!  My heart was racing and happy and you couldn’t knock the smile off of my face.  THIS was exactly what I was hoping would happen, even if some of the scenes went a little too fast……..I went back and already re-read them a few times.  They were sooooo good!

The invasion. My mom. My sister. The massacres. They all come rushing back. He’s right.
We’re at war.
On the verge of an apocalypse filled with monsters and torture in a nightmare world.
And I’m standing here, a moonstruck teenager pining for an enemy soldier. What am I, crazy?
This time, I’m the first to turn away.

An outstanding heroine – I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, Penryn deserves to be standing next to Raffe.  She is rational, logical, brave and fierce.  She is a force to be reckoned with and takes bad-ass to a whole new level.  I loved being in her head, she is one of my favorite Heroines ever!

He looks down at me with sincere eyes. “If I were human, I would have been the first in line for you . . .” He looks away. “But I’m not. I’m an archangel, and my people are in trouble. I have no choice but to try to set things straight. I can’t get distracted by a Daughter of Man.”
He nods a little to himself. “I can’t.”

A breathtaking hero – Not only was Raffe exactly what Penryn was – rational, logical, brave and fierce – but his loyalty and protection towards Penryn was utter perfection.  He made my heart soar with how he saw her and tried to protect her.  He made my heart melt as he fought back to back with Penryn and trusted her with his life.  

Amazing supporting side characters – Whether it was her sister, mom, the twins or some other Angels that I don’t want to mention, I loved them all.  They were fleshed out and felt as real as Penryn and Raffe.  They made me laugh and cry and I became invested in each and every one of them!

“We can all go our separate ways and die alone.” My voice becomes firm, and I try to inject steel into it. “Or we can stay together and make our final stand.”

✮Heart stopping action – Battle scenes, horrific situations, insanely difficult decisions, this book was filled with moments that left me breathless and utterly captivated.

“Just this once,” he says almost more to himself than to me. “Just one moment.”
Then he leans down and kisses me.

An outcome that was perfection – I desperately want to talk about this BUT I can’t without giving away an enormous spoiler.  So just know that I cried, laughed and my heart soared with something that happened.

Now do you see my struggle?  Because this series and book was almost perfect, except for all of the unanswered questions and HFN ending.  I still want everyone to discover this fabulous series, but I wanted to spell out clearly what I struggled with since you may or may not also struggle in those areas too.  But regardless of whether you agree or disagree with me, just know that I will always love Penryn, Raffe and their outstanding journey!

Synopsis:

When a group of people capture Penryn's sister Paige, thinking she's a monster, the situation ends in a massacre. Paige disappears. Humans are terrified. Mom is heartbroken.

Penryn drives through the streets of San Francisco looking for Paige. Why are the streets so empty? Where is everybody? Her search leads her into the heart of the angels' secret plans, where she catches a glimpse of their motivations, and learns the horrifying extent to which the angels are willing to go.

Meanwhile, Raffe hunts for his wings. Without them, he can't rejoin the angels, can't take his rightful place as one of their leaders. When faced with recapturing his wings or helping Penryn survive, which will he choose?

Review:

*Spoilers for Angelfall*

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh.  World After definitely pushed me outside of my comfort zone, yet this book was beyond addicting.  Here were my favorite aspects, along with one thing I struggled with, while this story unfolded –

She glances over at me, her eyes shining in the dark. “You’re a hero, Penryn, whether you like it or not.”

✮PenrynPenryn has become one of my favorite Heroines.  On top of being fierce, brave and kickass, she has such a huge heart.  She wants nothing more than to keep her family safe, and a few others she has come to care about along the way.  But at the base of it all, she has been realistic with her expectations.  Even when it comes to Raffe.  He has found a way into her heart, and yet in her heart she knows it can’t be.  Well, we’ll see.  You know I’m still holding out hope!

✮Pooky Bear – Penryn was left with Raffe’s sword, since it rejected him with his new wings.  And she named her Pooky Bear.  An archangel sword was given that name lol.  While I was at first devastated that Penryn and Raffe were apart, I loved that the sword showed Penryn moments from the past.  Those flashbacks were gripping and we learned so much about Raffe that he himself didn’t share with Penryn.  

October winds seep through my blouse and I can’t help looking up at the overcast sky for a particular angel with bat-shaped wings and a corny sense of humor. I swipe my foot at the overgrown grass and make myself look away.

✮RaffeRaffe has enchanted my heart and soul.  Moments that included his ridiculous humor, his strong presence, his anger and his fierce protectiveness of Penryn brought me to my knees.  I loved every single tiny detail of him.  

So this is how it all ends.
The world destroyed, humans imprisoned, my family scattered.
The thought makes me angry. I hope the anger burns up all other feelings because it’s probably the only thing keeping me on my feet and moving right now.

✮Horror – If you know me, then you know I’m a total baby.  When I was in my teens, I adored everything Horror, now I don’t want to touch it with a ten foot pole.  Yet with Penryn and Raffe, I do.  The middle of this book pushed me way, way past what I can handle.  It made me uncomfortable and I was sickened with what unfolded.  This book even gave me nightmares.  If it was any other book, I would have walked away.  Yet, I loved this story and the characters.  I highly doubt that you’ll ever hear me reading another series that has moments of horror.  Only for Penryn and Raffe, that’s it.

Sometimes, I just have to let go and let my inner Mom out.
I slash repeatedly like a madwoman.

✮Family – With Penryn reunited with her mother and sister, I loved that we got to see their flaws and all.  Even during one of the hardest times of their lives, when they should be pulling together, we got to witness how easy it was for them to fall apart.  It felt real and honest.  And it left me rooting for them to find a way to make it work and stick together.  I’m starting to have some theories about Penryn’s mom, and I hope they pan out!

I feel sick.
Sick from fear. Sick from anger. Sick from the stupidity of what I’ve done.

✮Epic Peril I love when books have me on the edge of my seat, with my heart racing and palms sweaty because I am equally terrified and excited for what is going to unfold.  World After has some of the most epic peril scenes.  They were emotional, memorable and I couldn’t always guess what was going to happen next.

I am just a girl. I am no match for these monsters. They may have looked weak compared to Raffe, and I may have felt like an equal in some ways during my journey with him, but after seeing what I just saw, reality sinks in.

I can’t wait to see how this trilogy ends!  I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the final book to be just as amazing as the first two books were!

Synopsis:

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 Raffe, an injured enemy angel. Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they journey toward the angels’ stronghold in San Francisco, where Penryn will risk everything to rescue her sister and Raffe will put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.

Review:

I was addicted to Angelfall by the first page.  The story-line was vivid and always left me with that desperate feeling of having to know what was going to happen next!  The characters were full of life, even the secondary ones, and I became deeply immersed in what happened to them.  And the peril and slight moments of horror that were intricately laced throughout the story made my emotions flail into overdrive.  How could I not fall for this book?  Add in the fact that every single tiny detail in this story called for my absolute attention, especially that ending *clutches heart*, and I was a goner!

“Where are we?” Raffe asks from the shadows behind me.
“In Hell,” I say.

I loved Penryn from the moment that I met her!  She is a teenage girl who lived with her mom and sister.  In hopes of finding somewhere safer to live, they left their home at twilight since the angels wreaked havoc at night, and the gangs ruled the days.  In those first few chapters, when they’re trying to get to safety, my heart was in my throat.  And what unfolded was utter horror.  While Penryn was fierce and brave, she ended up being left with an Angel who was injured.  And he was her best bet for finding her little sister, who was taken by the other Angels.

When you’re small enough to have to look up at everyone around you, there’s no such thing as a dirty fight. That’s a new motto for me. I think I’ll keep it.

Penryn’s decision making twisted my gut at times, yet her decisions were sound and made me cheer for her.  You’ll get what I mean within those first few chapters lol.  I loved that I quickly connected to Penryn and felt every single thing she did.  Especially her fear, her bravery, and her struggle over choices she made.  She definitely soared right to the top of my list for favorite kick-butt heroines!  Which made her interactions with Raffe, the injured Angel, that much better.  He is a creature who could decimate her in a second, yet Penryn stood up to him.  What she did, to try to convince him to take her to find her sister, wow, her loyalty and bravery were amazingly impressive.

“Sometimes, as we’re stumbling along in the dark, we hit something good.”

Raffe, awwwwww *flails around*.  He would leave the craziest smiles on my face.  With his ridiculous sense of humor, his bantering and no-nonsense ways, I adored him.  But one of my favorite things about Raffe was the ability to find clues in his actions or words.  Because while he tried to come off as indifferent, I just didn’t want to buy it.  Because some of the things he did and said, while I may be reading way into them, had me jumping for joy.  I have HUGE hopes for Raffe, and what is going to unfold!

I nearly stumble over a fallen branch. “You have got to be kidding me.”
“I never kid about my warrior demigod status.”
“Oh. My. God.” I lower my voice, having forgotten to whisper. “You are nothing but a bird with an attitude.Okay, so you have a few muscles, I’ll grant you that. But you know, a bird is nothing but a barely evolved lizard. That’s what you are.”
He chuckles. “Evolution.” He leans over as if telling me a secret. “I’ll have you know that I’ve been this perfect since the beginning of time.” He is so close that his breath caresses my ear.
“Oh, please. Your giant head is getting too big for this forest. Pretty soon, you’re going to get stuck trying to walk between two trees. And then, I’ll have to rescue you.” I give him a weary look. “
Again.”

If you haven’t read this series yet, it’s a must!  The story was ALL consuming!  The pace had me flipping through the pages trying to see what was going to happen next.  And I quickly connected to Penryn, fell madly in love for Raffe and loved the moments where her mom and other characters graced the pages.  I honestly loved every single thing in this book and I hope you will too!

Synopsis:

End of Days is the explosive conclusion to Susan Ee’s bestselling Penryn & the End of Days trilogy.

After a daring escape from the angels, Penryn and Raffe are on the run. They’re both desperate to find a doctor who can reverse the twisted changes inflicted by the angels on Raffe and Penryn’s sister. As they set off in search of answers, a startling revelation about Raffe’s past unleashes dark forces that threaten them all.

When the angels release an apocalyptic nightmare onto humans, both sides are set on a path toward war. As unlikely alliances form and strategies shift, who will emerge victorious? Forced to pick sides in the fight for control of the earthly realm, Raffe and Penryn must choose: Their own kind, or each other?

“It’ll be tough for them to take any action while I’m pummeling their faces. Disrespect will not be tolerated.” I half smile at him. “Because you’re all about respect.” He sighs as if a little disgusted with himself. “Lately, I seem to be all about you.”

 photo so-cute_zpszflrpynl.gif

Beautiful, mesmerizing, addicting….perfect. It’s no secret to anyone that knows me that this is my second favorite series of all time-not even close. I have fangirled about this series to friends and enemies alike, if only to spread a little more of the Raffe love-oh yeah, did I mention he’s my number one book guy?? EVER? Yeah, well, most people know that as well. But what most people don’t know, seeing as it’s my darkest secret, is that I was so terrified I’d hate this book that I almost wasn’t excited about it’s upcoming release. Yeah. Shocking. But as I picked this story up and began zooming through the story, pages of the book simply evaporated into thin air as if they were never there in the first place-I was a torrential reading storm. It was as if I had never left this world…and maybe I never truly have.

Sometimes, I wish I could take a vacation from myself.

What began as a story about an archangel losing his most coveted possession, his snowy white wings, and a girl taking him ‘hostage’ to get her sister back became an all out war between the two races. It’s almost as if Penryn was meant to run across the de-winging of my beloved Raffe all those days and nights ago. Humans are scared of angels. Angels believe man to be inferior and not worth questioning when told to slaughter them all. That is, until a certain cocky angel gets taken in by a stubborn and determined girl and they are forced to travel together for what they both want most. But what happens when what they want most becomes the one thing they were taught to despise: Each other.

He looks down at me with sincere eyes. “If I were human, I would have been the first in line for you…”

I’d have to say that, even through all the searching and war and battles, this has to be my favorite forbidden love story. And no, there’s so much more to this series than an angel bereft of his wings who has ‘secretly’ fallen for a daughter of man. I realize this. I’ve processed that. And my conclusion is this: While the story is amazing, unforgettable, and utterly epic, it wouldn’t mean half of what it did to me without Penryn and Raffe’s unattainable love for one another. They are by far the cutest, sweetest, fiercest enemies I’ve ever stumbled across, and I highly doubt I’ll cross paths with a couple that will ever mean more to me than them….and that’s a bold statement on my part: I’m the whore of ships.

He’s still scrutinizing my outfit. “Are you wearing men’s shorts?” “I guess so. But they fit.” “Whose are they?” “Nobody’s. I found them in a drawer.” He reaches over and pulls a thread off the frayed leg. It unravels, slowly winding it’s way around my thigh and incrementally shortening the already short shorts. “What would you do if you had to make a run for it?” His voice is husky as he stares, mesmerized, at the unraveling thread. “I’d grab my shoes and run.” “Dressed like this? In front of lawless men?” His eyes drift up to my midriff.

Every character was beyond wonderful in this story (main characters, let’s not be hasty). We got more Paige, some of Penryn’s crazy mom (Whom I absolutely adored in this installment), and some wonderful new Watchers. Each character added an intricate layer to the story that made it impossible not to fall harder and, in the end, they even added to Raffryn’s (YES, I WENT THERE-WHAT OF IT?) relationship. An amazing love scene is one thing, but added laughter, friendship, awkward instances, family love moments…that all makes it even better. One minute I’m swooning, then two seconds later I’m giggling and squeeing all at once (Keaton avoided me at all costs during this voyage through my beloved Raffe land-I was not to be trifled with as I fangirled openly) and unable to control the RIDICULOUS smile on my face.

The sun is beginning to set, adding a golden glow to the water. Wisps of mist begin creeping over the bay. It should be a peaceful scene, only my blood feels like it’s freezing by the second.

I can’t sign off of this series without saying something that is very important: Susan Ee is the Queen. Elaborate? Of course, my mistake. She’s the Queen of: Writing, characterization, gore, disturbing images, forbidden love, epic battle scenes, epic tormented love…. Need I really go on? This woman is my hero, from her creepy locust thingies that tore my heart out in book one to the creepy monster we see in the finale, no one has ever made me love evil (and now sometimes lovable, thanks to a certain sister) beings more than this author. She made me smile maliciously so many times I swear you could have caught me twirling my metaphorical mustache more than once in each installment. Breathless, heart-pounding, soul-crushing moments are her specialty, and I am in first in line when she serves them up…and no one is likely to take that accomplishment from her in my mind anytime soon (Kagawa is the only one likely on the same playing field, but I refuse to give either of them a step above the other-they’re both wonderful, sick, evil beings). Anyone over my fangirling yet? Too bad.

You don’t have to keep reading lol, but this is my final Raffe review and I will not stop before it’s all out.

Without his feathered wings, the angels won’t accept him. And regardless of what kind of wings he has, humans won’t accept him either. Uriel or someone in his crew once said that angels were made to be part of a pack, but no matter where Raffe goes, he always seems to be the outsider.

The way Raffe protects, takes care of, treats, saves, lives for Penryn shattered my heart into a million tiny pieces. The love he tries to hide so he can save his brethren throughout the series crushed my soul (in the best possible way). And the way he longs for Pen…..it made me so beyond happy I could barely breathe. Nothing compares to his jealousies, his devastation that he can’t be with her because it could never be in the world they live in. This installment capitalized on all those wonderful feelings we got from book one and multiplied them into this tragic and epic betrayal of what they both want more than their next breath-I teared up so many times it bordered on crazy. Even after they repeatedly say goodbye, is there a way to make it work?

 photo tumblr_n87phrQr181t0z40ro1_500_zps94v9e1sd.jpg

I could not have loved this more. I don’t care about literally any of the flaws, any world-building faux pas my lovely and aggravating friends found to be incriminating, or any of the beyond disturbing and nightmare inducing images. Any flaw is minuscule to the immense enjoyment I found while reading this wonderful, addicting, and, again, UNFORGETTABLE series about a beautiful, tormented, and lonely angel who feels the only person he can trust in the world is the daughter of man who once took him hostage. Nothing compares to the feelings I got while reading this and I will perpetually re-read this series until I know it word for word and scene by scene. I would say, ‘Hey, you HAVE to read this,’ but everyone and their brother has read it. Dude, my GRANDMOTHER has read this and began this final installment yesterday, like me. What kind of person hasn’t? Do you live under a rock?? Bro, step it up! And seriously, Raffe, enough about the farming lol. That won’t win Penryn-we don’t live in 1950 (or whenever-psh).

Synopsis:

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.

Why an experiment?

Basically, because I’m so stubborn I wanted to try new books with all the creatures that made me cringe in the past. I mean, my only experience with angels was my struggle to read this crappy abomination that is Hush, Hush (I think I deserve a huge chocolate box for that one, don’t I?)

That’s why I’m here. Thank you amazing Kat (click here to read her beautiful review) for reading it with me! I don’t know what I’d have done without you to share our WTF?!!

You don’t want to live there. Good to know! Angels target big cities. Follow my example, my nearest neighbors are sheep. Woot-woot!

Every food is your friend. Sometimes energy bar is the only thing you can grab. Other times that’s cat’s food. Don’t be vegetarian. Don’t be allergic. You don’t know what you’re going to eat.

Instant-jerk reactions are welcome. If you see an handsome wounded angel, go help him. I know what you think, how in the world am I supposed to carry him and all that? But trust me : I just learnt they weight almost nothing. And, icing on the cake, if you manage to do that, you might win a sarcastic and swoon-worthy partner in crime from whom you can collect useful evidences about your enemies, and whose package involves :

✔ Warm hugs when you have a nightmare

✔ Witty comments to decrease the tension

✔ Fighting backup. That’s freaking useful when you walk in the world after (don’t count on it too much though, the help isn’t always coming)

Improve your survival instincts. If someone tells you to run,  you run. No hesitation. Being able to climb a tree is definitely a plus. And you have to run fast, because action never ends in an Apocalyptic world.

A good preparation leads to success. You are way more likely to survive if you took self-defense classes in the past. I guess you have to start right now. One is never too careful.

Don’t be a stupid brat. If your mother starts to talk about daemons, listen carefully and don’t do that children thing that is to say “Hmm hmm” without actually listening. Every information can be important.

Remain focused on your goal. You’re not here to save the world, so just keep this in mind. Ah, you do. Good girl.

↬ Anyway, the most important thing you have to know, you new inhabitant of the world after, is the fact that the Angels are fucking stupid. And that’s that lack of pertinence or explanation for their presence on Earth that prevented me from truly loving this book. I mean, hey, I’m pretty cool with weird stuff but COME ON. In my opinion the world-building wasn’t that original but rather a strange combination of creatures who don’t fucking know why they’re here. ← That killed me. At some point, the whole world seemed just random. So fucking confusing. Not to mention the dystopia vibes with the Resistance. Been there. Done that.

Verdict : Penryn is an awesome heroine who deserves to survive : she has everything mentioned earlier, and above all that, she cares about her family and never loses hope. I loved her.

Verdict (2) : There’s no way I could survive. I can only hope apocalypse isn’t coming.

To sum-up : That’s safe to say that I couldn’t relate to Penryn. FORTUNATELY. This might have save her life – and save the book for me.

And Raffe. I really liked that witty angel.
