Summary (thanks Goodreads): 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 seventeen-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 she'll risk everything to rescue her sister and he'll put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.

My Thoughts: Oh. My. God. OH MY GOD. ASDAKJSFASJF. I don't even know how to begin to describe my love for this book. In my latest romance obsession, I have completely forgotten about my good old dystopian love. But fear not! Angelfall re-introduced me to how much I love and missed dystopian literature. This book jumps right into the story. You don't know who you're supposed to love, you don't know who you're supposed to be rooting for, but eventually it just happens. I love with when you have characters you can't pinpoint the moment you fell in love with them, it just happened. I love Raffe. Oh sweet baby J, I love Raffe. How cool is the idea of an agnostic Angel?! Plus, I love how in depth and how intriguing and different all the characters truly are. Tell me the last time you had a heroine with a schizophrenic mother. And, Paige. My heart, poor little Paige. I love Paige, I love Penryn. It's basically impossible to not love this book. You need to get your hands on this now. Seriously. Need to. If you're a scratchin for a good amazing awesome perfect  dystopian novel, this is for you!

Final Thoughts: Get this. Now. Right now. Right this second. Hazard notice: This series is looking to have 5 novels?!? and this is the first and only out!
