About the Book:
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?


End of Days is the exciting conclusion to an amazing trilogy. It's filled with non-stop action, swoon-worthy romance, and a heroine that seriously knows how to kick some butt. Obviously if you haven't read this series, then I think you're crazy. I think I'm crazy for waiting so long to even start the books. But in a way I'm glad because sometimes having to wait for books you love can be so tortuous. I was so happy to see so much Raffe in this installment, seeing as how we barely saw him in the last book that came out. So good news ladies: HE'S HERE TO STAY!

 The story starts off where it ended in World After. Raffe and Penryn have finally found each other again and now more than ever, they must find a way for Raffe to get his wings on so they can stop
Uriel from becoming messenger. Of course trouble along the way is a given. Such as Penryn taking a trip or two to hell bringing back with her a legion of hellions. All hell bent on destroying her. Then Penryn and Raffe are faced with a teensy-weensy problem. It's come as no surprise that they are enemies and must choose sides when an epic battle between human and angel comes to light. How will they both face such a difficult choice?

Throughout all the books we've all felt the sexual tension between Penryn and Raffe. Besides some stolen moments and declaring that being with a Daughter of Man is truly forbidden, I think End of Days will curve the appetite and frustration you've had with the two. I won't say anymore because you have to experience everything first hand without being spoiled! But holy moly, when you do read please come back and talk to me about it. Come talk to me anyways about the book so we can cry tears of sorrow and joy together over these freaking bad ass books. 

We are introduced to some new characters thar didn't take me long to fall in love with. Why oh why did this have to be the last book? I would love getting stories from secondary characters. To me they were just as important as the main characters. I guess it's just not meant to be though. Oh well, I was very happy with how things ended. They weren't what I expected but in the end, it was still epic.  

 With the help of her not so crazy mom, her baby sister who isn't quite human, and her wanna-be boyfriend Raffe; Penryn has her hands full trying to save the world from truly ending. It's up to her to save the human race from extinction but can she do it? The world Ee has created has been so well developed, it's as if I'm watching a movie in my head. I can't recommend these books enough. They're truly amazing. 

Overall, this is a sad day having to say goodbye but I'm so happy to have had the opportunity to read and review Penryn. She's a character I think ALL girls should up to. She's brave, loyal, and being brave doesn't always mean not being scared. It's the exact opposite. She may be scared but it doesn't
stop her from doing what she thinks is right. Even if it means putting her life on the line. And that me is what makes her so great. 

Be kind and don't forget: don't take life for granted. After all, some crazy angels might decide they want to take over our world ;)
