“When I was little, I always thought I’d be Cinderella, but I guess this makes me the wicked witch.

But then again, Cinderella didn’t live in a post-apocalyptic world invaded by avenging angels.”

This book was mentioned in Times 100 Best Fantasy Books of all time! That is some pretty big shoes to fill to be mentioned along the likes of Robert Jordan, Patrick Rothfuss, GRRM, Tolkien, and many others! So saying I was excited to jump into a Post Apocalyptic Urban Fantasy that deals with the actual apocalypse that was mentioned as a “best book of all time” is an understatement! To my dismay, this did not live up to those very lofty expectations that were put on it. BUT, this was still a very good and fun read and worthy of 5 stars!

“I never thought about it before, but I’m proud to be human. We’re ever so flawed. We’re frail, confused, violent, and we struggle with so many issues. But all in all, I’m proud to be a Daughter of Man.”

ANGELS OF THE APOCALYPSE! Is there anything else I need to say to get you to read this? There is? Ok… here goes. This book is not trying to push religion, it is a fast paced and action packed, man vs angels, post apocalyptic adventure! Penryn is a strong female that you can’t help but love while she goes through her “trials and tribulations” she has help from an Angel that was beaten and brutalized by his own kind and left for dead to find her sister, who was abducted by fallen angels… better? The final hour and a half raises the bar and is edge of the seat exciting, I’d like to say more but I don’t want to give anything away! Caitlin Davies does a very good job narrating the story getting into each character and their personalities. There were a few times where I legitimately laughed out loud, and a few times I rolled my eyes. All in all, I enjoyed this book quite a bit and can’t wait to find out what happens in book 2.
