End of Days (Penryn & the End of Days #3) (Susan Ee)

endofdays

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?


I can’t believe that this trilogy has ended… why oh why?! I needed at least 3 more books… heck, right now, I would be super happy if we could get a short novella about Penryn and Raffe and how they’re adjusting to everything. And maybe another novella about his Watchers… maybe even a novella per Watcher, huh? Wouldn’t that be something?

Do you guys have any idea what I’m talking about here? If no, it’s probably because you haven’t read this trilogy, and maybe you should leave, because I will probably throw in some SPOILERS about the first two books, and one or two about this one.

All things considering I loved this book, the plot was great and the action was out of this world. Penryn keeps on getting more and more badass, becoming truly Raffe’s equal in this book. Raffe finally opens up a bit, and the appearance of his Watchers sheds some lights into what he has endured during his time on Earth. They also help him see some things more clearly.

The romance was freaking amazing!!! While in book 1 there was all about denial and book 2 was mostly about distance, this one is about them admitting their feelings, even though Raffe thinks he won’t ever act on them. Penryn becomes bolder, and teases him relentlessly, and Raffe ends up giving in quite a few times… OMFG, I had to read chapter 5 a few times before it totally sunk in. And God, Raffe says the most romantic things, I was there swooning for the guy the whole time.

*swoon* YES, he truly went there and told her she should find a pig farmer… oh Raffe…

endofdays_4

And then… oh yeah, he would be the best freaking pig farmer EVER, for her!

The only part of the book that felt a bit slower was when the humans were organizing to fight the Angels, maybe because I didn’t like that Penryn was doubting Raffe so much, although I totally understood why she did, but this guy had refused to kill humans before… I don’t know, it made my heart hurt that she was doubting him. And then, when the Angels get to the battle and the Humans win, I would have liked to see more detailed what happened next… the last chapters were a bit rushed, and I wish we had not only more details, but also more closure. But OMG, that battle was epic! And the sacrifice?! OMG!!! I couldn’t believe it, after 3 books trying to be whole, he did what he did… oh my…

endofdays_3

I have a few unanswered questions, and I can’t believe this was the last book! I mean, how the hell did Penryn’s mom knew about the rotten eggs? What happened to all the locusts? Will Paige command them all? What about the Watchers? How are they settling in? Are they staying with Raffe? Is Raffe living with Penryn? See?! I need one more book!!!!

 I already miss this series so much!!!

World After (Penryn & the End of Days #2) (Susan Ee)

worldafter

In this sequel to the bestselling fantasy thriller, Angelfall, the survivors of the angel apocalypse begin to scrape back together what’s left of the modern world. When a group of people capture Penryn’s sister Paige, thinking she’s a monster, the situation ends in a massacre. Paige disappears. Humans are terrified. Mom is heartbroken. 

Penryn drives through the streets of San Francisco looking for Paige. 

Why are the streets so empty? Where is everybody? Her search leads her into the heart of the angels’ secret plans, where she catches a glimpse of their motivations, and learns the horrifying extent to which the angels are willing to go. 

Meanwhile, Raffe hunts for his wings. Without them, he can’t rejoin the angels, can’t take his rightful place as one of their leaders. When faced with recapturing his wings or helping Penryn survive, which will he choose?


How do I even begin to talk about this book? I don’t want to spoil anything for you guys, but by now, after what I said about Angelfall, you should have read it!

So, this book starts right where the first one left of, it’s super fast paced and Penryn becomes even more badass than she already was. Not only do her fighting skills kick in, but she learns sword-fight, and get this: it’s the sword itself that teaches her how to fight. Yeah, Pooky Bear is awesome! And Penryn is awesome! She fights ANGELS!!! She kicks Angels in the face and makes them lose important parts of themselves… PENRYN IS FREAKING AMAZING!

worldafter_2

Paige… I don’t even know where to begin with Paige. She creeps the hell out of me, but not as much as their mom, oh no, she takes the prize on that one. But hey, she gets some kind of award, because in her mind Penryn and Raffe are engaged, even if she thinks that he’s the Devil.

worldafter_5

My only complaint about this book is that it took 72% of the book for Raffe to even learn that Penryn was alive, and for them to finally kick some ass together. Luckily they are never again apart after that, and she spend a great deal of time flying in his arms. And she saves his freaking live – POINT TO PENRYN! After he saved hers…

worldafter_1

And then the banter is back, with a lot more meaning behind the words and I was swooning the whole time and kind of wishing that he HAD made her laugh before she ripped her dress… you know what I mean, right? Also, the PEANUT BUTTER SCENE!!! OMG! I wished this was a movie, because I want that scene to play before my eyes.

worldafter_3

Also, Uriel is a freaking son of a b***h, right? he’s so freaking manipulative, and just wanted to slap all those Angels for them to see what was right in front of them… Judgment day… =/ And, I did not see that scene between Paige and Beliel coming, I thought for sure it would go another way entirely, but I was super glad about how it turned out.

worldafter_4

So, to sum it up, I loved this one as much as Angelfall, the only thing I missed throughout this novel was Raffe and his banter with Penryn, but I think she was able to shine that much more without him having her back. We also got a look at Raffe’s past (have I said how amazing his sword is?!) and of his feelings towards Penryn and his fellow Angels. I can’t wait to start on book 3, End of Days, it will possible be today 😀 .

This was my comments during the reading progress, in case you had any doubts about how much I missed Raffe on this book. I do hope they don’t spend that much time apart in book 3.

November TBR

november_tbr

Hello, hello. It took me a couple of days to organize what it is that I’m attacking this month, but I got it now. 😀 The main goal this month in terms of reading will be keep up with my ARCs for this month, and finish the 2 series that I’m in the middle of: The Lunar Chronicles and Penryn & the End of Days.

I’ll warn you before hand, this is a very ambitious TBR.

nov_tbr_1

1. The Last One by Tawdra Kandle – This book is already out – when I was approved for it, it was already passed its publication date. Because of that I want to get to it, but it won’t be my priority.

2. Nirvana by J.R. Stewart – oh man, I’m so scared of picking up this book. This was an auto-approval from netgalley – I didn’t request it – and I do have the revised version, but still, the synopsis doesn’t make me want to jump into it.

3. Something in the Air by Marie Landry – This seems like a fun and easy read, and I’ll read it soon because it comes out in 9 days.

4. Right Where You Are by L.E. Bross – I actually finished this one of at 3 a.m. the night before last (that’s why it isn’t on my October wrap-up). Expect a review this week, and I really liked it – so so so HOT!

5. Crystallum by Laney McMann – This book comes out at the end of November and I’m intrigued by it.

6. Did I Mention I Love You? by Estelle Maskame – I’m really excited for this one. I hope I have time for it, given that publication date is December 1st.

nov_tbr_2

7. World After by Susan Ee – I actually already started this book, after reading (and loving) Angelfall, I just had to keep going with this series as soon as possible. I’m about 20% in, and I need Raffe… 20% of the book without him is too much (and I’m sure Penryn agrees with me).

8. End of Days by Susan Ee – Read the above.

9. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer – I read Cinder last month, and I was supposed to read Scarlet too, but somehow I just wasn’t in the mood. But with the last installment of this series coming out this month, I really want to get to it minimally spoiled.

10. Cress by Marissa Meyer – Same as above.

11. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell – I got my hands on this book very very recently and with all the raving reviews coming out, I have to get to it soon. I honestly don’t know if it will happen this month, because let’s face it, this is a huge TBR, but I really want to at least start it…


Ufff, I know this is a HUGE TBR, but I really need to get through most of these 😀 . At the very least I want to read all my ARCs and World After and End of Days, even if I have to leave The Lunar Chronicles for next month, but I’m hoping that that won’t be necessary…
