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.

★★★★★ “Excellent book! I read A LOT of books especially in this genre and I can say this book is a MUST READ.... The heroine is intelligent and independent but human.”
-- Aditi Misra
★★★★★ “Wow! The story is original and suspenseful and terrifying.”
★★★★★ “If you liked Hunger Games, you'll like this even better!,
If you've read the Hunger Games you'll find some similarities in this book. Told from a first person perspective inside the mind of a strong, independent teen who's like Katniss (but less bitter), it's the story of a girl who fights to keep her family safe as an angelic apocalypse destroys the world.
Penryn is my new hero. You thought Katniss was cool for saving her sister, dealing with a depressed mom and killing kids? Try a crippled sister, a paranoid schizophrenic mom, evil angels and no world order. I was blown away and can't wait to read the second book. Do yourself a favor and start reading this!”
★★★★★ “Impossible to put down. This story is fantastic. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK! I'm still kicking myself for not reading this sooner. I want to read it again. I want to make everyone I know read it.”
-- Pamela @ At Home Between the Pages
★★★★★ “Don't miss this book.
Angelfall is everything that is great about Urban Fantasy; a captivating and horrifying world, a brave and likeable heroine, a mysterious, handsome and smart ass male love interest. The world Susan Ee creates is compelling, her characters are sympathetic and real.”
★★★★★ “Impossible to put down!!, Utterly enticing.”
-- M. Phillips
★★★★★ “Fantastic Book - A New Favorite!
How can I enjoy other books after reading this one? It was THAT good, that yes, it's spoiled me for all others.
This book has so much going for it: top-notch post-apocalyptic adventure (I got visions of The Road, The Walking Dead, The Book of Eli, and The Passage), exciting and likable heroine taking the lead (think Katniss or Ripley, except better looking and with a witty personality!), gorgeous hunk of a hero (who's really the enemy slash anti-hero, which makes him all the more desirable and alluring), and wonderful writing, editing and pacing - all masterfully tied together in a wonderful package by Ee...and all by her darned self - independently published! What could be more inspiring and likable?”
★★★★★ “One of the best I've read this year.
Incredible storytelling. It had me from the first page until the very end. Penryn is probably my favorite heroine right now. “
★★★★★ “Fabulous! What an amazing novel! I was riveted from the beginning to end.”
★★★★★ “Best book of the year.”
★★★★★ “Captivating! Angelfall is a masterpiece. It hooks you from the first words till the end of the book - and makes you want more!”
★★★★★ “Completely surprising, amazing novel.
This is hands down one of the best books I've read in the past year. I was absolutely hooked from the first chapter. I don't think I've ever read a book that felt like this one, that dealt with things that this did - I cheered so much for the principle characters. Absolutely mind-blowing. I cannot wait for the next one.”
★★★★★ “AMAZINGLY AWESOME! Loved this book. It sucked me in and I ended up reading/finishing it in a matter of a few hours stretched throughout my day. The world, the descriptions, the characters are all so very amazing. It is thrilling and captivating. SUCH A GOOD READ.”
★★★★★ “Stunning and insanely good!,
For months I had heard about how good of a read Angelfall was, and I had no doubt that I would like it once I got around to reading it. But hearing all the praise is different from actually experiencing the book. Because man... It wasn't just good. It was INSANELY good.”
