A crude knight stands alone with his sword drawn against a fire-breathing dragon that is ten times his size. The dragon's tail disappears into darkness where the window light fades deep into the store. I know just how he feels. It's been three months since I read it, and I still can't wrap my head around the fact that it's over. To sum this book up in 10 words, "It is everything I wanted it to be—and more. Please take note that if you're currently reading this book, Penryn and Raffe's reunion just happened the night before.
Their first meeting in Angelfall happened roughly two weeks ago because Angelfall and World After covers about ten days of their journey you can reread the books to verify. Thanks to Katerina for helping me count!
That's how packed and huge this series is. She's not just a brave human girl; she's a fighter. She represents humanity.
A Daughter of Man. Raffe, on the otherhand, has always been a fierce believer and follower of angelic rules but in this book, the battle between his responsibilities and his heart gets tougher. He's not just an archangel; he's a warrior. He represents the angels. An enemy soldier. He can't be distracted by a Daughter of Man, but the fire can be tempting.
Imagine my shock—and utter delight, when the romance got more intense in this book. I could have lived my whole life without reading about those two grinding while he flies her around searching for Hellions.
Dry humping? Maybe I've been out of the 'clothes on' game too long, but when the hell did dry humping make a comeback? I mean, come on! And I really could have gone without the scene where she puts his hand on her boob while he's sleeping next to her. Unacceptable Creeper Behavior!
Swerve to avoid! Was that supposed to be ok simply because she's a girl? It's not! It's not ok! How are we supposed to teach our boys that this is the kind of thing that will land your ass in jail, if there's some weird double standard for girls? How well would that scene have played out in anyone's head if she had woken up to find him using her hand to rub his junk?
Maybe I'm one of the few people who didn't lurve the end of this trilogy. Other than the gripes I already talked about, the last thing is that I never really got into this story the way I did the other two books. It may have been because I kept waiting for answers to happen. And without those, this book fell really flat for me.
It's not a horribly written novel. I finished it in a day, and while I wasn't in love with anything about it, I can't honestly say that it was The Worst Book Evah, either. It was for me a middle-of-the-road kind of story, with an ending that felt rushed and unfinished. Also reviewed for: Nov 22, Sh3lly GrumpyBookGrrrl. That ending. A part of me wants to give this five stars and another part of me wants to give it one star, so I guess I'll settle on three stars.
Action, Pacing, Plot: Five stars. Four stars. Three stars. Two Stars. One star. Obviously, I didn't have issues with these things. I thought the pacing was much improved over World After. There is pretty muc That ending. There is pretty much always something going on in this book. The story overall was a good one to wrap up this trilogy. Supporting Characters. I really love Paige. God, I love her.
She may be my favorite character in the whole series. Shining moments. There are also some new characters introduced - the Watchers - and they were good. Their dialogue felt forced and not fresh or funny to me. World Building and Resolution.
I'll group these together since they are similiar. Although I did like the inclusion of the pit, there really wasn't a whole lot added and I was very disappointed with all the things the author never explained about this world.
Some things were left so vague or simply ignored. The ending was so incredibly rushed and felt slapped together. Big disappointment. She fixes Raffe's wings and fixes Paige but we don't get to see that at all. Were there no warrior females?
It kind of feels like maybe the author only wanted one bad-ass female character around the angels - Penryn. Another planet, another dimension?
Oh really. That seems like an easy way for the author to enable Penryn and Raffe to have babies and a cheesy HEA. Funny how that changed suddenly. Why didn't he tell Penryn that to begin with?
Probably because the author changed her mind and decide to go with the predictable romance HEA. I did not like her as much in this.
Romance and The Ending. I will go ahead and group these two together. There was much more romance in this and I didn't like the way it was done.
Penryn is I don't care how bad-ass and smart she is, Raffe is thousands of years old. The insta-love Penryn had for Raffe worked because he was a hot angel and it was the end of the world and yes, they formed an unusual bond because of extraordinary and traumatic circumstances. Raffe is used to being in traumatic circumstances and war. He would not fall insta-in-love with a 17 year old he just met two months ago.
And choose to stay on earth and not go back with his people. The ending was the typical expected HEA. A part of me is angry, but I feel conflicted because I really did enjoy most of the book.

I will. I must. Because what can I do? It's not like I can torture the sequel out of you, right? One request, though. One of your number one fans, Kirstin View all 4 comments. Take your mind out of the gutter, people! If you ever stumble upon this creation The creatures described in this series sure are something. Even the HFN ending, I was thankful it didn't turn into a cheese fest. I was perfectly happy to experience the journey, wasn't really about the end result.
View all 49 comments. Each and every book has been incredibly fun and emotionally satisfying. I have to admit, though, that when Susan Ee first announced that the series would be three books long, the prayer candles started to come out. I was terrified about what would happen to my ship in End of Days ; would it be the end of them? If you have not yet read the brilliance that is Angelfall , I will tell you what you are missing. End of the world.
Angels vs. In this third and final book, it seems humanity is holding its last breath. The angels have released an apocalyptic nightmare, and Penryn is left wondering which side Raffe will be on. While the angels' infighting surges, Penryn struggles to make sense of herself as a leader and Raffe must form a new strategy to bring peace between angels and humans. When the final battle draws near, will they be standing together or apart?
Me being me, I was extremely nervous about the fate of Penryn and Raffe. The world is coming to an end, what with the angels declaring Judgment Day and willing to obliterate humanity for their own nefarious purposes, but I just needed to know one thing: Susan Ee doesn't make it easy. End of Days is her sexiest book yet. There are kisses that will leave you breathless and wanting more.
There are moments between Penryn and Raffe that had my heart squeezing tight, especially when they allowed themselves to be vulnerable. How could they realistically stay together? An almost impossible question, so I was eager to see how, if at all, Susan Ee would answer it. But if one thing is certain, it's how well Raffe and Penryn work together as a team.
The chemistry is there, but so is the way they show how much they care and how well-suited they are together. I appreciate the amount of time we get with them in this last book, seeing them work in harmony and in complete trust. They are a true team. Like the first two books, End of Days is a great mixture of plot and characters. Penryn is an amazing heroine, a girl who has had to grow up too fast even before the apocalypse but who still longs with a teenager's heart.

Her strength always inspired me, and it's paired so well with her warrior love interest. You wouldn't think a young girl could keep someone like Raffe on his toes, but she so does. Their verbal sparring is priceless. Raffe is pretty much temptation incarnate, with his immense strength and sarcastic demeanor. But I love his growth, especially in this last book, when he's faced with the choice of his angel brethren and the girl he's fallen for.
Raffe, as an angel, is not meant to be alone, but who will he seek comfort from? The other cast of characters have always taken back seat to the Raffe and Penryn show, but they are a compelling mix.
Penryn's mom, especially, has more depth than I had originally given her credit for. She's crafty and clever, if a bit crazy, and her antics are quite humorous at times, too. As you can expect, there's an epic showdown at the end, and I am super pleased with how these events unfold.
Susan Ee makes the whole story line not only chock full of action but believable, too. I was surprised with the way she plays with time at one point in the book. It's done so effectively, especially because I wasn't expecting something of the sort. My main complaint would be that I wanted just a little bit more at the end. One more chapter with these beloved characters. I can't believe this series has come to a close, but I know I will be remembering Penryn and Raffe's story for years to come.
If the apocalypse ever does come around, well, I'll try to be as tough-minded and strong-willed as Penryn, and maybe hope there's a warrior angel in store for me?
Start this series if you haven't yet, but if you have I don't think you'll be disappointed in this epic conclusion.

We do not choose. Keep in mind that End of Days has quite different dynamics than previous instalments. So if you expect another Angefall and World After, you will be disappointed. Once I got used to this diff Powerful conclusion to one-of-a-kind series!
And that is one of the best compliments I can pay to a book. End of Days is one of the best stories about survival I have ever read. Humanity, its strengths and weaknesses are the main focus of this book. Author provided a powerful example of the best and the worst that humanity has to offer.
It brought tears to my eyes, gave me goosebumps and most importantly it made me feel so much! Now that Penryn and the End of Days series is over, I can say that it is most memorable and without the doubt my all time favorite series featuring star-crossed lovers. Kudos to author for creating such amazing and unforgettable characters! Joan of Arc. Okita Soji, the samurai. Alexander the Great. They were all teenagers when they began leading their armies.

The characters are what made this book. I love Penryn and Raffe so muuuuuuuuch. Overall, pretty fantastic trilogy. View all 3 comments. Jun 04, Sophia. Man, that trilogy was such a trainwreck.
Where was the editor for this book? What was he doing? So in the second book, there was hardly any romance at all, but in this one, the romance is suddenly everywhere and so abruptly sexual it was intensely awkward. What if the roles were reversed? Penryn changed. Like we need another mindless, stupid heroin who's doesn't know she's pretty! Oh, wait. I am a schoolgirl.
I suck at this. No, of course not. Who would ever do that?
And sooo many repetitions too: Actually, that problem first appeared in the second book and while reading, I could never really tell you what was happening.
It wasn't gripping enough for me to stay focused. It was always like this: This is literally what happened like a dozen times. It was always the same thing.
Remember, back when the first book was published and everyone was beaming and saying how for once the author knew her shit and had obviously done solid research on Angels? Other random things happen but no one really knows why, such as Laylah suddenly becoming one of the good guys while also apparently being the only fucking female in the entire angel world , Paige being able to control the scorpions, a talent show that I have yet to understand… Overall, weak and shallow plotline, and contradictory world building.
I swear it sometimes looked like a sixth grader wrote it. There is also a major problem regarding the terrible characterization. Mom is crazy did she cause Paige's accident? Was she an abusive mother? Why is she like that? The fact that she was now bound to only eat human flesh was interesting and could have led to deep, disturbing discussions.
Paige struggles with her new condition at the beginning, and tries desperately to starve herself. That raises interesting points, survival vs humanity, necessity vs morality. And then there's Paige's entourage, and their different reactions, which can only lead to more questions.
How far would you be willing to go for someone you love? Would you feed them human victims, if that was the price to pay for them to stay alive? Unfortunately, discussions like these never appear in the book. No one actively adresses Paige's condition.
We're stuck in Penryn's head and she never thought about it for more than three lines, she would always go back to Raffe. Why would she stop her Mom from giving a willing victim to Paige?
Paige, even though she had potential, grew boring and Ee's problem with repetitions didn't help. How many times were Paige's stitches mentioned?
And why is she able to control the monsters? What was so special about her? Was it just because she was the last monster-child? Why could Penryn wield an Angel sword? From its stupid name, to the "dreams" that were a convienent way for the author to do some lazy info-dump.
And the angels have got to be the most idiotic species I've ever had the misfortune to read about. They mindlessly follow whatever orders they're being given, without ever analyzing their own motives. Where do they live?
Do they have a God? Can they have children? As always though, Ee provides no answer at all. It got exasperating. Which brings us to the next problem: No one died in this trilogy.
If you want me to believe that it IS the end of the world, and that they are nearing the Apocalypse, you also have to show me an evident truth: You can't go through hundreds of armed fights without ever getting hurt. How is it possible? Sacrifices should have been made. And I feel like there were three different possibilities for the author: The mom, Paige, or Raffe. Ideally, she should have died. Tough, yes, and I would have been upset, but in a good way. Authors have to make sacrifices!
Especially if you chose apocalyptic settings, a happy ending is stupid. I was truly convinced, up until the middle of the third book, that Ee would stay reasonable and have Raffe leave — which was the ONLY possible solution.
I would have loved some kind of Peter Pan ending, with Raffe leaving and maybe coming back decades later, and her remembering him vaguely, or better yet, maybe she had been waiting for him to return that whole time. Or even an adult Penryn dating someone who casually says "I swear it's like you have a guardian angel sometimes". So many possibilities to be explored - the classic YA Happily Ever After is only one of them, and it's the weakest of them all!
Because goddammit, if you're going to write about an impossible love story set in an apocalyptic world, then okay, but at least have the balls to give it the rightful ending! Yeah, it's tough decision-making but the value of the book and series as a whole would dramatically change altogether! Would she give up on Paige? Now that would have been interesting conflict! But no. At some point there was some random talk about some humans being ancestors of angels and having some kind of angelic blood, and I freaked out because it seemed obvious that Ee was talking about Penryn.
Therefore her and Raffe being together could have worked out. It makes no sense. How is that ever going to work? What is so complicated in accepting the fact that you're not meant to be together? Why did he "love" her? Why her? I liked it when Beliel said to Penryn: Do you know how many people have thought they could win his love over the centuries?
How many hearts do you think have shattered over Raphael, the great archangel? Listen to that, Penryn! I liked that. It's realistic. I think the series perfectly illustrates how the publishing world can pressure an author into self-sabotaging their own work.
I genuinely believe that the first book was great, because it came from Ee as a spontaneous idea and project. She must have worked on it without any sort of pressure, because she was unknown, and it was self-published.
Now where have I seen this before? An example among so many, but it does remind of Stephanie Perkins. She wrote Anna and the French kiss and it was insanely good, and then she had to publish two other books to complete an unnatural trilogy that was forced and made for money. It was supposed to be five books, then three, and if I remember correctly, Ee got critisized for snapping at her readers' impatience.
I get that, though, expectant readers can be so demanding, so passionate, it's enough to make an author flip. I don't think she had enough time to let her draft form and develop. I think she needed more time. She had so much pressure, and probably not a lot of ideas So she wrote those sequels in a very short amount of time What a shame.

View all 26 comments. May 12, Robin Bridge Four rated it really liked it Shelves: A List of Awesomeness in End of Days: Susan Ee gave us some new and fantastical scenes from hell, she bridged new territory with her imaginings of the demon realm and I for one am in awe of it.
Just when it got too heavy and too gruesome she tempered it with quick wit and humor to keep it from becoming overwhelming. Plus there was romance…. Raffe totally still immortal, Penryn completely mortal so they get 50 — 60 years together and poof done. But that just seemed a little glossed over and under fleshed out. Also the very end hook up was slightly cheesy….. I wanted possibly a smidgen more on that front.
Do they still just hang out in our Ocean or did they go back to the demon plain with the Pit Lord? I really wish Penryn would have asked and that Raffe had a different plan in mind.
That is quite a big thing to forgive if he was going to decimate all those humans.
Susan Ee totally changed the lore and the Nephilim were harmless and just babies…no monster flesh eating tendencies. Now most humans have a little diluted angle blood in them. Mostly that is it. Nothing really bothered me so much that it diminished my overall enjoyment of the story. I really wonder if Ee is going to revisit the hellion realm or this world again in future stories.

I lowered my rating again because the more I think about the book the less I like how it turned out. There's nothing but angels there. While it wasn't as good of a conclusion as Dreams of Gods and Monsters or Shadowfever and it didn't give me a million and six feelings like Ignite Me , I enjoyed it and I think it concluded some things and left others open in a way that makes sense. When you read a book in a very short period of time you tend to forget a lot of details.
But still, when I read the first two books in a pretty much the same period of time, I remembered a lot of it. Angelfall and World After left me obsessed. End Of Days left me with too little. I love it. Susan Ee has an imagination and it makes me giddy. It also made me cringe. I like the guy a lot too, but it's the "end of times". Get your shit together. The writing style of these books is full of humor and hilarious characters Dum and Dee might be my favorite characters in the whole book.
They are loveable, not to mention endlessly entertaining. Both the mum and Paige are complex characters and I loved the relationships in this odd little family play out. I don't adore her character anymore. In a bad way. Either they're decent human beings or they're not. No, I didn't quite download it. Best part of the book. Humanity on the page. If I could rate a scene 5 stars, it would be that one.
All the humans in this book feel fleshed out, even if they get a very short amount of page time.
The Penryn and the End Of Days series presents people in their good and their bad in a realistic way even with a world full of angels. So I obviously didn't read this in May. But now is finally the time. I'm going to read it this weekend.
Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days #1)
Oh my pretty. View all 41 comments. Jul 17, sreeja hiatus rated it liked it Shelves: This book was great but it did have something about it that did not quite put it up to my expectations. I also loved how she learned to accept and love her mother and sister for who they are. She has come a long way from the Penryn in Angelfall and that is great! I love how they show Raffe and his friendship with the Watchers in this book but it could have been explored more! I feel like this book is short and that the ending was too abrupt to answer all the questions that I have had for this series.
Like, yeah I get that Raffe is attracted to Penryn but how did it change to love?? So, where do I start from? Do I start from the beginning? Well, I was and still am pumped for this book, for this series. It's a great series and although Susan Ee planned for it to be a 5 book series, it ended up being just 3 books, and this is the final one. I'm sad that there won't be any more books coming from this series but I'd sure as hell love to read some other book Ee releases in the future.
I'm quite sure, it's going to be amazing. Her short sentences, and dialogues are amazing and des So, where do I start from? Her short sentences, and dialogues are amazing and despite my not liking dialogues all that much, she brings them on nicely and definitely adds to the amazing-ness of the story.
So, final chapter. Is it a happily ever after or is it a disastrous ever after? You'll have to read to find out. If you're a fan, a shipper, of Penryn and Raffe then you'll probably love this book. It's the only book in the trilogy where we get some action between these two. Things get heated. Hot and bothered.
The book was gripping, it didn't let me go. I couldn't even get myself to leave the book aside and go pee. That's gripping to me. Uhm, there was action, constant action, and that's what I mainly love about this series. It's a dystopia, it has angels and it involves some drool-worthy action.
While Penryn has always been a badass, I think she's more confident in this one, she's more decisive. She becomes a leader. Raffe, okay, he's the tough type and while some authors get the whole attitude wrong, Ee did him justice, balancing the tough facade and his real self. I only wish that after the final battle scene, the ending of the book would have laster a little while longer so I could have said my goodbyes more properly.
Oh, and yes your eyes didn't trick you, there is a battle scene and I'm telling you this because it'll make you that much more anxious throughout the book. It's been over a year and a half since I read the first two books so I was expecting to go into this completely blindly but this book was really helpful in reminding me of previous events!
I read the entire thing and never once read a line where I had to go back and think "wait, what? I'm a sucker for those superhuman boys matched with normal human girls, I gotta admit. It made me swoon. However, this book as well as the earlier books I love these books because they are just so damn fast paced, and I found myself reading and then checking the page I was on and going "WHOA seriously???
These are action packed and the writing is so gripping that I read this in practically 3 sittings. My main problem with this is that it just got a little too strange for me. Additionally, I thought that this wrapped up a little too loose-ended for my taste; I would have preferred a chapter or two at the end just to more fully explain the characters' futures.
But overall a very enjoyable series and I love Penryn and Raffe and now i'm on a hunt for a man with wings. Buddy read with all my favorite whores: Click for their wonderful reviews "It'll be tough for them to take any action while I'm pummeling their faces.
It's no secret to anyone that knows me that this i Buddy read with all my favorite whores: 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?? 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. 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 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. 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 I'm the whore of ships. He's still scrutinizing my outfit. But they fit. I found them in a drawer. It unravels, slowly winding it's way around my thigh and incrementally shortening the already short shorts. In front of lawless men? 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. An amazing love scene is one thing, but added laughter, friendship, awkward instances, family love moments 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. 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 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.
