Penryn and the End of Days Book One
Rating: A Million Stars out of 5!! (ok ok Five out of Five Stars)
HOLY SWEET BABY JESUS!
I need to catch my breath after this book. I feel like I just got done running a marathon of greatness and wonderfulness and every other positive descriptive words you would like to include. This book.. it’s just so… freaking amazing… I can’t even….
So I have used this quote before “A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading it” – William Styron, Conversations with William Styron but I have never felt it ring so true than with this book. Susan Ee shoots a shot gun in the first chapter and doesn’t slow down the entire book. It’s insanely well written, captivating, fast paced and brilliant.
The main character, Penryn, is so kick ass. Like, Uma Thurman Kill Bill status. But it’s not surreal! Sometimes I see awesome females and go “yeah right so would not happen in real life.” But Ee takes the time to explain WHY Penryn is so f88cking awesome and it makes me relate to her (even though I can’t hurt a fly) in such a personal way. Her tie to her sister and mother are perfectly described and when she becomes brutal and ruthless, I like it because I would do the same thing to save my family. Penryn’s relationship with Raffe is also well founded, no cup of instant love my friends!
This story is unique and different than anything I have read. It takes your typical angel/demon stories and injects it with Hulk juice. It’s a gripping tale that will have you enthralled the moment you open the book until the second you close it. Be prepared to not work or sleep or eat or shower while reading it because you will not want to put Angelfall down.
