Book Review: Angelfall by Susan Ee

By Susan Ee
Penryn & the End of Days, Book 1
Feral Dream
Release date: May 21, 2011

One minute Penryn carries her younger sister, Paige, down a flight of stairs, and the next, she witnesses the Archangel Gabriel dying (apparently, there’s footage of him being gunned down from the pile of rubble that was Jerusalem).
