Publisher's Summary

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 17-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 Penryn will risk everything to rescue her sister, and Raffe will put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.


What the Critics Say

"Ee’s debut novel is a promising opener to what looks to be a YA series worth following, one that explores what it means to be human and what it means to be a hero." (Locus Magazine)

This is not your run of the mill angel story not even a little bit. This one will surprise you and gross you out simultaneously. Virtually no romance so if you are looking for that you might have to wait for the sequel. However, if you are looking for adventure this is your stop. Hang on it's going to be a wild ride.

Consider yourself warned!

This is one of the most offensive, poorly-written, stories I have ever read or tried to listen to! Here is an example of a halfway-good idea very poorly executed. The main character is an unpleasant, unintersting person whose very tone, attitude, and stream of conciousness is consistently mean, trite, and offensive. I can't believe this got published. Much of the narrative is inane and nonsensicle. The very phrasing the author tries to use to make comparisons and describe things at many points just makes no sense at all. The fact that there is some violence and gore in this story is not what I have a problem with. What I do have a problem with is that it's conveyed in such offensive language and with no sense of artistic taste. This author has absolutely no skill in trying to tell a story wherein a person/character might exhibit distasteful or violent behavior but yet it is not offensive in the way it is written or told. (Think Hunger Games or Divergent) .Those two authors understood the fine art of doing this, and of potraying the humanity of their characters. This author includes several lines or scenes that are in very poor taste, such as a reference to "an old fashioned chaining", the use of the D-word (male anatomy sex-toy), a scene where the girl is bullied in a sexually-harrasing manner by a brutish young thug at the camp where she ends up. Even the mention of young male characters' references to (even the idea) of two girls kissing she manages to make just as creepy as possible. I am not a "prude" or easily shocked, and I have read MANY books. Let me say again this is offensive and very poorly written. This author managed to write and have published a story that contains absolutely no poetic sense, artistry, grace or good taste. If you want good stories about Angels, run don't walk to pick up the Angel Burn books or Hush Hush series.
I have to say in closing as far as the audiobook experience, the narration was good. I felt her voice was right for the main character and the story, even if her voice for the male lead was an unfortunate affectation throughout most of it.
