That review title may make no sense unless you "read" this book. It's a story that starts and ends fantastically but in the middle, it's very repetitive. The first couple chapters really draw you in with high drama, suspense and mystery. However, in the middle it switches over to a sequence of events that goes round and round. Danger, saving, danger, saving...Repeat for about 3 hours. I'd say more about why how similar each event is but I don't wish to ruin the experience for anyone. The final chapters though, that's where the book really shines. I wonder the sequence the author actually wrote the chapters, as these final ones contain much more dramatic and vivid imagery then had used up to this point. The plot points that happen in the last hours really make you curious about what is going to happen next in the series. Though I may not have particularly relished the middle of the book, it seems like every part of the story was actually being built upon and not just added to artificially lengthen.
This was the first I've ever heard of Caitlin Davies as a narrator and I must say, I was quite happy with the end result. I could see how so people may not enjoy her rendition of the male lead but I actually felt like it fit the character after you get some more background about him. I really hope to see her return when the second book in the series comes out.
It may be listed as a teen series but don't fear that. I'm far from those old days but I still found it worth the credit.
Bit of a warning though: If you're easily offended by Biblical figures (particularly of Catholic theology), you may want to stay away. I'll just leave it at that.

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.

Incredible storytelling. I was hooked from the first chapter and just couldn't stop listening!
An angelic apocalypse destroys the world and Penryn a headstrong girl fight's to keep her family save. I've instantly fallen in love with her witty character! The relationship between Penryn and Raffe is quite an interesting one, romance sparks up towards the end a little and will sure endure into something more in the books to follow!
Can't wait for the next one to come out :-)

This book is rather more gruesome than others in its class, but perhaps that is one of the reasons why it stands out. This is a new and interesting take on the world of angels and will make you want to listen right to the end of the book. It is full of suspense and I will certainly be downloading the next book in the series.
