Different, refreshing, exciting and enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this book and would go as far as to say it is the best book I’ve read (well listened to - I got my copy from Audible!) in absolutely ages. The story revolves around a plucky teenager who lives in a world where the angels have come down to Earth and are waging war on us mortals. Penryn rescues an angel and persuades him to help her rescue her sister from the angel base.

The story has a strong female lead, strong female characters and deals sensitively with issues like schizophrenia. The characters are very believable and I found myself looking forward to the next instalment of the story as I was keen to see what happens next – it really is that gripping. As the story progresses you find out little snippets of information about the angels and how they live, which helps keeps you engrossed.

The only negative thing I could find to say about this book is that the next part in the story won’t be released until November. How am I meant to wait that long to find out what happens next?

Not as good as expected

I bought this book on the reviews and I am not that impressed. Good idea but I would not get any others. Not bad enough to send back.

The narrator is very good and does well with a so, so book. If I had to read it I would not have got through the first 100 pages.
