This is a really good book, and the only thing stopping me from giving it that fifth star is that it's lacking that certain X factor that grips you entirely and wrings the emotions from you. I was more interested and invested, but not to that degree. Keen to read the rest of the series though, and sometimes those sequels manage to pull off what the first volume didn't.
Where does Angelfall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I'd say it's in my top 10
What other book might you compare Angelfall to and why?
I don't read a lot of series on Angels so the only thing I can compare it to is Amy Bartol's Premonition series. But I prefer Angelfall more because I like Penryn more as a main character.
What about Caitlin Davies’s performance did you like?
I love her voice! :)
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Any additional comments?
I hope I can purchase books 2 and 3 in audible format. I know books 2 and 3 are out. But unfortunately, I'm unable to buy it for some reason. I mean, I know I can buy the hard copies or the ebook version. But I prefer the audible format.
I really enjoyed this book and would go as far as to say it is the best book I’ve read (well listened to - I got my copy from Audible!) in absolutely ages. The story revolves around a plucky teenager who lives in a world where the angels have come down to Earth and are waging war on us mortals. Penryn rescues an angel and persuades him to help her rescue her sister from the angel base.
The story has a strong female lead, strong female characters and deals sensitively with issues like schizophrenia. The characters are very believable and I found myself looking forward to the next instalment of the story as I was keen to see what happens next – it really is that gripping. As the story progresses you find out little snippets of information about the angels and how they live, which helps keeps you engrossed.
The only negative thing I could find to say about this book is that the next part in the story won’t be released until November. How am I meant to wait that long to find out what happens next?

I bought this book on the reviews and I am not that impressed. Good idea but I would not get any others. Not bad enough to send back.
The narrator is very good and does well with a so, so book. If I had to read it I would not have got through the first 100 pages.

i loved the book. it was an integrating twist on what i thought was gonna be a normal love story with a magical twist.
What made the experience of listening to Angelfall the most enjoyable?
The narrator was great and it was such a good story really well done for a young adult genre not at all patronizing and realizes that kids these days are more grown up than before.
