In A Nutshell 
This book was an epic adventure with dark and gory details that left me breathless and anxious to see how the story played out. I read the audio book and it was AMAZING. The narrator did a fantastic job and made me really feel like I was in the middle of all the action. I will warn you this book is not cupcakes and rainbows, but its a story that you wont easily forget, will make you appreciate every happy moment you get to read about, and it will become a new favorite. This book forces you to love it with the beautiful writing, unique and creative twist on the Apocalypse. I HIGHLY recommend it even if darker themed books are not your usual style. If you don't read this book you are going to miss out on a great experience!  
 
 
"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."
 
I was afraid of this book, yes it had amazing reviews and one of the highest goodreads rating I have ever seen but still it sounded so dark and gloomy. And it was dark and gloomy that isn't usually my style, but I feel like this book is so beautifully written with so many twist and turns it forces you to love it. I was shocked by the twists on the Apocalypse this is not what I learned growing up in church, and it left me terrified. I wont lie there were some parts that had me freaked out so much that I didn't want to be left alone. This was dark and to me realistic but it still had me swooning at moments. The romance takes a backset in this book, but it makes you appreciate every last drop of romance you get. Susan Ee did a great job with keeping the mood dark and terrifying but gave still gave the character and readers hope. I loved this book and cannot believe that I wanted so long to read it, but it was a great way to end the year! I do recommend the audio book, this one is one that I feel like everyone would love. The narrator makes you feel all the emotions. It is probably one of the best audio books I have ever listened to.
 
What did you think of Angelfall? Oh and do you guys like the "In a nutshell" part? I thought maybe it would be nice for maybe the readers who want to read my thoughts but are in a hurry.
I hope you guys are having an amazing day!
Happy reading yall
