Somehow this book managed to stay off my radar until recently people started talking about the upcoming sequel.
And let me say: Why didn't anyone tell me sooner how awesome this book is?
Because this is an amazingly cool read. Once I started on it I couldn't put it down and finished it in one afternoon. It's that addictive!
I will confess I hadn't expected that a book about angels could be this gritty. I thought it would be the umpteenth Dystopian read that doesn't really deliver, but instead it's a thrilling Post Apocalyptic tale filled with violence, darkness and danger.
I loved both Penryn and Raffe. The interaction between them was cool and believable (apart from one scene that made me want to slap Penryn for being a bit slow to grasp what was glaringly obvious). I kept rooting for them both to survive the perils they have to face.
The ending left me hungry for much, much more and I immediately preordered the next book so I can get my trotters on it as soon as it releases.
