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?

The endings of triologies ae always bittersweet for me. On one hand, I'm happy because I have another book and get to find out more of what happens to my favourite characters. On the other hand, I'm heartbroken because it's over.

This book was exactly that. I love Penryn and her messed up family and Raffe and his guilt and indecision and all that. I am so sad to see this series end! I don't know what Susan Ee is up to next, but I hope it's more books, because she really is an engaging writer.

I want this review to be spoiler free for the series, so there's lots I can't really say, but I will say that Penryn continues to be both bad ass and mental tough. She breaks down a few times and acts like a normal teenager, but in general, her strategy of repressing her feelings really seems to work for her.

I really like the way Susan Ee writes action. It's so exciting and engaging. The big event at the end of this book was crazy and I could barely pull myself away when my lunch break ended and I had to go back to work!

As I'm sure I've said in all my reviews of this series, I love these ass kicking, death-dealing breed of angels. They truly are terrifying. I always see similarities between Susan Ee's angels and the angels in season 4 of Supernatural. And it seems like Uriel is always portrayed as a huge dick!

Anyways, before this review devolves into too much of a fangirling mess, I'll end by saying End of Days is a great ending to an awesome series. And just don't think to much about the age difference between Raffe and Penryn or you'll start to feel a touch Twilight-y

  1. It's almost impossible to review this spoiler-free, and yet you did such an amazing job. As much as I love this trilogy as a whole, though, the third book missed its mark with me, I'm afraid. I just felt that there was something missing.

  2. Ending are always so tricky and yes, bittersweet. I'm so glad this worked for you though, I do love it when that happens!
