End of Days (Penryn & the End of Days, #3) by Susan Ee [Review]


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?
4 It’s OVER Stars!!!!

End of Days is the conclusion to the Penryn & End of Days series. If you haven’t read this series, I highly recommend you do. First off, this series took 6 years! Yes, the author wrote each book every two years. I have been with the author since book one.

I actually met Susan Ee at a book signing and I had to ask her why it took her so long for each book. She gave me a detailed explanation of her thought process. She told me she had to publish a book she felt 100% good about. She said she has written a whole book and trashed it because it didn’t sit well with her. Isn’t that crazy? I kind of liked it. I liked that she is so passionate about her writing and it’s not about the amount of books she publishes, but how much she loves it and she doesn’t want to let her fans down.

There will be spoilers from the previous books

Penryn and Raffe are the perfect star-crossed lovers. I love YA books because of the subtle sexual tension. There’s zero sex, but the tension is so thick, it’s incredible. Penryn is human and Raffe is an angel. The two can never be together and they understand that. It’s heart breaking sad.

We are soldiers, Penryn. Legendary warriors willing to make legendary sacrifices. We do not ask. We do not choose.

Both of them are on the run. Raffe wants his wings attached to him again and Penryn just wants to survive. She also wants to figure out her confusing situation.

Penryn is dealing with her human eating sister. It’s a crazy storyline and I wouldn’t expect anything less. Raffe and Penryn run into a lot of stuff. This book is jammed pack full of action. The pace and direction of End of Days is completely different from World After. I felt like there was always something going on and I couldn’t get enough. They have to deal with other angels, then the survival of the human race, and oh how about the pits of hell? Yeah. CRAZY.
Penryn and Raffe interact a lot and YAY! So don’t worry, they don’t part often and if they do, it’s not for long. Your heart will be racing throughout the story and you will be gasping for breath until the very end.

You should be with a nice human boy. One who takes your orders and puts up with your demands. Someone who dedicates his life to keeping you safe and well fed. Someone who can make you happy.

Susan will not disappoint you. I did ask Susan if she would write a spin off, she said her next project isn’t a spin off, but she wouldn’t be opposed to the idea. Crossing fingers lades!
