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.

This was another one that I almost put down. But I think it was because I just wasn’t in the mood for an angel book.  I waited 2 weeks, and picked it back up.  And I’m glad I did.
The world is terrifying. I definitely would not want to live in this setting. Angels aren’t necessarily the good guys we’ve always believe them to be. They can be pretty horrible and brutal.  And there is a mysterious threat that not even some of the angels know about. There were a few parts that I thought dragged a little bit, but it didn’t take too much away from the story. This is definitely a book filled with crazy twists and turns. I don’t trust anyone.
Character-wise, I really like Penryn. She’s a hard pill to swallow sometimes, but she doesn’t give up in her search for her sister.  Her mom is creepy as all get out though. Raffe is rough around the edges but he grows on you.  You start to appreciate him even when he seems a little harsh.
I enjoyed this book, and will continue on with the series.
