*Thanks you soo much Skyscape for sending me an ARC of End of Days*
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?
WHAT AN EPIC FINALE TO THIS AWESOME SAUCE TRILOGY. ATTENTION PEOPLE AS SOON AS THIS BOOK COMES OUT GET IT BECAUSE THIS IS EITHER MY FAVORITE OUT OF ALL THREE OR MY SECOND FAVORITE AFTER ANGELFALL. P.S THIS IS A SPOILER-FREE-ISH REVIEW BUTTTT I AM GOING TO INCLUDE A FEW QUOTES AT THE END SO YOU HAVE A SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO! 🙂
So starting right off the bat we are sucked into this book. It grabs from the first chapter. For me it was probably the first page because..well Raffe. Again we see the Raffe and Penryn moments now more than ever and it all satisfies our fangirling hearts.THERE IS SO MUCH SHIPPING MOMENTS THANK YOU SUSAN EE FOR MAKING MY DREAM COME TRUE. There isn’t too much I can say to you guys without spoiling the book for you since this is the third and final book in the series, BUTTT I’ll try my best. All you need to know though is that this was a amazing fantastical with skittles on top book.
I can talk about the OTP in this book though…. RAFFE AND PENRYN ARE LIFE!! They get soo soo soo sooo much closer in this book and start to open up more to each other but not too much since this is the angel apocalypse. EVery single scene that they are alone you just want to treasure in your heart since there is A WHOLE BUNCH of them. Yes we do meet a few new characters that I have grown to like but I feel like the original team in this book is what us fangirls/fanboys are most excited to read about. The only thing is Raffe can sometimes be a little…confusing to us. One time he is closer than he could ever be with Penryn and then all of a sudden he goes back to saying she is The Daughter of the Man, and all that jazz.
Then we have the mother and Paige. Paige is still very important to me when it comes to this book. She is the main reason that Raffe and Penryn ever meet (which I have to thank her a million times for) but now Penryn is scared of her own sister because of what she become. She still knows that she’s her sister but at the same time she knows that Paige has changed completely. When I was reading this series in fact i could never imagine how Paige looks. What do you think she looks like? For some reason I see her as half-human, half-fly, and I know for a fact that is now how she looks like. At this point I don’t really care about the mother that much. I know she still cares for her daughter and her daughter cares for her, but now her mother’s main focus is others and now herself and her family.
I feel like I should end the non-spoilery part here. You need to read the book for yourself to find out what happens. Just for you to know I feel like this book was probably one of the best out of this trilogy. You have so much action, romance, and not to mention how much the characters are building up. Once this book comes out you NEED to read it, its amazing and I would definitely give this s a reread one day. For your enjoyment I took some quotes out of the book for you all to have a sneak peek 🙂

” I’m surrounded by a sea of frenzied angels, and I can’t seem to find a way out.” –Susan Ee, End of Days
” He lowers his head while we’re flying and touches his lips to mine. His kiss is hot and wet as it intensifies.” –Susan Ee, End of Days
” I remember I don’t have Pooky Bear anymore.” –Susan Ee, End of Days
” You have brains, and you have a family,” says a man with a gash on his head. “That’s your special power?” “We can all go our separate ways and die alone.” My voice becomes firm, and I try to inject steel into it. “Or we can stay together and make our final stand”-Susan Ee, End of Days
“I have better things to do.” “Like what?” He opens one eye and looks at me. “Like convince a stubborn girl to admit she’s madly in love with me.” I couldn’t help but smile. “So if it’s not a pig farm that you want, what is it?” he asks. I swallow. “How about a safe place to live where we don’t have to scrounge for food or fight for it?” “Its yours.” “That’s it? All I have to is ask?” “No. There’s a price for everything.” ” I knew it. What is it.” “Me.” –Susan Ee, End of Days
