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.

Love, love, love this book! I read this immediately after reading “Marked” when I had a bit of an angel/demon kick. I was not so sure about the story when I first started, but got sucked in as soon as Penryn hides in the warehouse and is forced to make quick choices. Both Penryn and Raffe are sarcastic, practical and have a great interaction. This book is ultimately about Penryn finding her sister Paige and the strength of family/sisterhood.
No matter how crazy I thought the plot was getting, somehow it just worked. This was definitely one of the books I immediately bought the remainders in the series in one go since I knew I’d really want to know what happened next.
Warning: Contains violence.
Rating: 5 stars!
Who should read it? Fantasy fans looking for a dose of mild horror with their adventure.
