Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back. Anything, including making a deal with Raffe, an injured enemy angel. Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they journey toward the angels’ stronghold in San Francisco, where Penryn will risk everything to rescue her sister and Raffe will put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.

These houses are nowhere near as close to each other as houses in the suburbs, but they are still regularly spaced along the road. Most of them are hidden behind redwood trees, which is great for surreptitious supply searching. I wonder how long we should wait for my mother and how we'll ever find her again. She knew to come up to the hills, but we had no plans beyond

Like most people, my first introduction to angels was through the looping footage of the Archangel Gabriel being shot. I can't help
I come up with nothing. I've hesitated long enough. Being found by the monster as I stand frozen in indecision is the stupidest way to die that I can think of. Rock or hard place? I steel myself to ignore the creepy sensation crawling up my back. I take a deep breath and let it out slowly, hoping to calm myself. It doesn't work. I turn away from camp and plunge into the forest. CHAPTER 22 I can't help but look to see if there's anything I need to worry about sneaking up behind me. Not
the times she raved in tongues in the middle of the night in my room. She came in so often while I slept that I'd gotten into the habit of sleeping with my back to the wall so I could see her coming in without her knowing I was awake. She'd sit on the floor beside my bed, rock back and forth in a trancelike state, gripping her Bible and speaking in tongues for hours. The nonsensical, guttural noises had the cadence of an angry chant. Or a curse. Really creepy stuff while you're lying in the
sparkling jewels. The angels are dining and drinking, smoking and laughing. Through it all, an army of white- gloved human servers carry trays of champagne glasses and hors d'oeuvres under the winking chandeliers. The band members, the servants, and most of the women look human. I feel an unreasonable blast of disgust for the humans in the room. All traitors like me. No, to be fair, what they're doing is nowhere near as bad as what I did by not disclosing Raffe at Obi's camp. I want to
