I love this book so much that i have three copies - two in paperback, and the other on my kindle, and I’m not ashamed to admit it! I remember when this was just a 77 p book on kindle, now it is sold in paperback with a potential movie on the way. I feel like a proud mother.
The start reminded me a little bit of The Hunger Games - a girl trying to save her younger sister - which is part of the reason why I bought it. And it didn't disappoint. After just the first few pages I was sucked in. I've found with a lot of dystopian books that they're either quite confusing because the author doesn't explain it very much in terms of world building, or they explain it too much and I get bored. But with Angelfall that wasn't the case.
Whether you prefer paranormal romance or science fiction, this book really does have the whole package. There is plenty of action to keep you interested, just a hint of romance (for now) and big dollop of comedy as well! Seriously, this book actually made me laugh out loud so many times, and I hardly ever laugh at books.
The main characters were great as well. Penryn was no Mary-Sue and was witty and a bit of a badass, while Raffe was confident and funny, but not in an annoying, cocky way.
What I loved the most about this book was is that I got to see Penryn and Raffe’s relationship progress over the book, seeing them slowly turn from being tense allies to friends. Don`t worry, you won’t get any of the stupid insta-love that many YA books have nowadays. Penryn and Raffe’s relationship seems so real, that by the end you can’t help but root for them!
Definitely the easiest 5 stars I have ever given.
