End of Days by Susan Ee
…and the conclusion to Penryn’s epic journey!
Penryn and Raffe are on the run and looking for answers.
Will they be able to find a cure for Page and will Raffe get his wings back in place?
An apocalyptic nightmare released by angels threathens to wipe off humanity once and for all…will Raffe and Penryn end up fighting side by side or against each other?
“I challenge you to come find us.’ ‘This is Penryn Young, Daughter of Man, Killer of Angels.”
Overall I loved this series but I have to say I was disappointed with this conclusion.
I had LOTS OF EXPECTATIONS and most were not met.
Even so, I loved this adventure and I’m so happy I dived right into it!
✷About the romance:
I absolutely love romance and here I’ve waited 2 books for more of Penryn /Raffe love story BUT Penryn kind of goes out of character where hot angel Raffe is concerned.
I completely understand she’s 17 and all hormonal but…I wanted her “badassery” included in the romance and instead I got:
“Time stops, and I forget about about everything else – the apocalypse, my enemies, watching eyes, monsters in the night.
All I feel is the kiss.
All I am is Raffe’s girl.”
The “All I am is Raffe’s girl” quote is NOT Penryn as I got to know her in the previous books.
Even so, I told ya I’m a romance junkie and overall I enjoyed these two.
✷About the Plot:
A lot of questions are left unanswered such as…where do warrior angel came from? What was the true purpose of all this? How is it possible that Raffe is “agnostic” but he actually was high in the “angel gerarchy” and a Watchers’s leader?
A lot of stuff we’re supposed to accept as they are and I hoped those things would made more sense after this book.
✷About the ending:
I loved this story so much that I wished for more “days after the end” and a clearer picture of what their future will be.
We’re talking about the “end of days” so I can understand why the author chose that finale.
It’s epic but at the very end feels uncertain and “open” like there’ll be more.
We know the happy stuff comes right along with all the consequences and endless possibilities the world has to face after destruction.
I just wanted to know more about those consequences and those possibilities to give this story a firmer closure in my head.
I practically devoured this series!
Non-stop action, hilarious banters, epic battles to save humanity and a starcrossed love story….what are you waiting for?

~ Quotes ~
“I have better things to do.”
He opens one eye and looks at me. “Like convince a stubborn girl to admit she’s madly in love with me.”
“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?”
“That’s it? All I have to do is ask?”
“No. There’s a price for everything.”
“I knew it. What is it?”
You accept me just the way I am, regardless of whether or not I even have wings. Even when I had my demon wings, you’ve never looked at me with pity. You’ve never wavered in your loyalty.
That’s who you are—my brave, loyal, lovable Daughter of Man.”
