End of Days by Susan Ee

Goodreads Summary:
End of Days is the explosive conclusion to Susan Ee’s bestselling Penryn & the End of Days trilogy.

After a daring escape from the angels, Penryn and Raffe are on the run. They’re both desperate to find a doctor who can reverse the twisted changes inflicted by the angels on Raffe and Penryn’s sister. As they set off in search of answers, a startling revelation about Raffe’s past unleashes dark forces that threaten them all.

When the angels release an apocalyptic nightmare onto humans, both sides are set on a path toward war. As unlikely alliances form and strategies shift, who will emerge victorious? Forced to pick sides in the fight for control of the earthly realm, Raffe and Penryn must choose: Their own kind, or each other?

My Review:
I am both sad and excited to do this review. I loved this series and am so sad that it has ended but, holy crap did it end with a bang. This series has always been a little different, more realistic in my mind. Angels being the unbeatable adversary. People died and it isn't the "Oh it's the end of the world but, I am loving life" version of the End of Days. That is one of my favorite qualities of this series. Penryn and her family have been through it all. I can't imagine how Penryn has managed to keep it together like she has. Especially with what happened to her sister and things being so rocky with Raffe. She is an insanely strong individual who deserves a happy ending. They have been though enough and the End of Days is no exception. What could there be left to do? War. War is what you do now. Penryn is prepare but, so are the Angels. They are preparing for a fight they can't win. Will it be the End of Days for humanity.

The dynamic between Penryn and Raffe is different now. She is looking more and more like the forbidden Daughter of Man to Raffe then just an annoying girl. She has gone through a lot to help him. Has done and gone places nobody else would have for him. She cared for him when he had demon wings! How can you not develop feelings for someone like that? Penryn obviously has feelings for Raffe as well. Lets be honest, its quite possible the End of Days and what would you do with your super hot angel protector?! I'd make a move that's for sure. There are some romantic moments but, nothing to hot and heavy. I was like why does it have to be so tense!! Let them have some alone time! 

I loved this series and I am sad to see it end. I never saw any other ending for this series and I am happy with it. I would have liked a longer Epilogue though! Now is the time to pick this series up if you haven't read it yet!

  1. OOoh nice! Glad to hear you enjoyed this one! Hearing mostly good things, but some are saying things felt rushed towards the end. Guessing because the projected 5 book series quickly turned into 3. But I still can't wait to read it! Glad to hear you enjoyed it so much as well! Great review!
