Angelfall is a post-apocalyptic fantasy novel written by Korean-American author Susan Ee. The story is narrated by Penryn Young, a year-old girl living in the San Francisco Bay, which has been attacked by angels. The book has been translated to more than 20 languages and was one of the finalists for the Best Fantasy and Fiction Book in the Cybils Award. 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. Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street.
After a daring escape from the angels, Penryn and Raffe are on the run. When the angels release an apocalyptic nightmare onto humans, both sides are set on a path toward war. As unlikely alliances form and strategies shift, who will emerge victorious? Forced to pick sides in the fight for control of the earthly realm, Raffe and Penryn must choose: Their own kind, or each other? I laughed, cried, fell madly in love, become utterly terrified and was even beyond ecstatic.
