5 +++ " I just freakin LOVE this series" kind of stars
Are you getting the excitement?
Good! Because this series is FANTASTIC!!
(I still don't know how I'll be coping with the waiting for the 3rd book *sigh).
Even the end of the world can't keep us from wanting to belong, I guess.
Dystopia and Angels it really is a winning combination! And if you like me war blown away by the first book, you're love this one even more. Why? Because it got's darker, grittier,horrific and intenser than ever.
Action packed, thrilling and complex, the world building is just brilliant.
She truly is one of my favorite characters ever, i just love her. And in this one she is showing her potential and above all, she shines in this book. We see how much of a hero she is, warrior,a leader, always trying to figure out how to do the right thing.
And still,she can be so funny, with all her teasing and banter. And she still can be a girl, although she did had to grow up so fast.
I want to see him in a different kind of moment.
One where he's cocky and in control.
One where he's experiencing something other than threats and pain,if only for two seconds. That, and I'm dying to know what he felt during our kiss.
I know it doesn't matter. I know it won't change anything.
I know it's juvenile. Whatever.
Can't a girl be a girl for,like, five minutes?
You can Penryn, you sure can ;)
(i know it's a quote from the 1st book but just look at the pic, GORGEOUS!)
The prisoners scream when they see Raffe with his demon wings.
It's painful to see that people prefer a bad guy who looks like an angel
to a good guy who looks like a demon.
Gosh, it pains just to read this quote and how true it is. But we all know how Raffe amazing he is!
Now, although it [ did took ages from here to appear again and then, to be reunited with Penryn - WHICH WAS PERFECT, BRILLIANT and asdfghjkl- we got to know plenty more about him in this book. The flashbacks we got were soooo GOOD!
Now you must be wondering what kind of character is called Pooky Bear, am I right?
Well, it's not a living being BUT it's the most awesome object ever. Oh yes, Pooky Bear is a kick-ass archangel sword! Yeah, it was Raffe's sword but now Penryn is the carrier.
Here is one reaction to when they discover the name of the sword...
"What is it?"
His friendly face suddenly becomes serious,
"You're naming your collector's-item, kick-ass sword that's made to maim and kill,specifically designed to bring your ginormous enemies to their knees and hear the lamentation of their women - Pooky Bear?"
"Yeah, you like it?
And don't let me start on Raffe's reaction, I laughed so hard that I cried,aha. Seriously, one of the best scenes oft he book.
Now, not only the name is awesome, but the sword also have a personality (of sorts) and have powers. Like share with Penryn some memories and even training her how to fight in her dreams. Now, how cool is that?
Yep, I LOVED it so much!
It have been over a month since I read it, and just by reading the highlights and notes I did while reading, made me want to re-read the whole series again.Just so you know how good this books are!
The plot, the action,monsters, angels, apocalypse, the bantering was just GREAT!
