Goodreads Synopsis:

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.

I read this back in like 2015 and this was the review from then - however - I can't remember liking this book as much as I wrote here. So I think it is time to do a reread especially since I never actually got around to actually reading book 2 and I have seen this book series do a come back and I have seen it appear in deferent social media platforms such as Youtube and Instagram. I did read this via audiobook from Kindle unlimited. I do believe it is still free with to listen to with kindle unlimited so I think I will be adding it back to my to be read pile.

I enjoyed the book. It did have a slow start to me. I didn't really get into the book until around chapter 10 and then it picked up for me. By the end of the book she has me wanting to know what happens in book 2. I just hope that book 2 doesn't take as long to get me into the book.

I did enjoy the story line and there are some major twist and surprises in the book that I was almost grossed out by. BUT I could not put the book away. When she actually got to the wall of stitched up kids, and the details she put in to explaining their bodies and stitches was very well detailed.

Thanks for the great read. I am off to read book number 2.
