Why oh why haven’t I read this before now? This book has been out since 2013 and I’ve only just read?
I read in a few hours because a) I couldn’t get enough and b) I couldn’t put it down. Anyway……
In this post apocalyptic world, the angels have wrought down their idea of vengeance on humans and now basically rule until they are given a ‘message’ to go elsewhere.
Pen meets Raffe, helps him and she basically seals their fate. She sets off with her mentally ill Mum and Raffe so she can rescue her disabled sister, Paige who has been taken and Raffe can get what he wants back from the angels.
Along the way they meet some interesting people, there is banter, there is blood, gore, cannibalism and scary things and I really enjoyed it. Also Pen and Raffe stole my heart!
