Forlagets beskrivelse

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?

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Non-spoilery review, however it does contain quotes, but none too spoilery.

Rating: 6++ stars
^This is the first book I have ever given more than 5 stars, but it SO deserves it!

QUOTE: ”You’re a very special girl, Penryn. An amazing girl. An I-didn’t-even-know-someone-like-you-existed kind of girl. And you deserve someone who treats you like you’re the only important thing in his life because you are. Someone who plows his fields and raises pigs just for you.”
“You’re matching me up with a pig farmer?”

End of Days had me glued to the pages and holding by breath throughout the entire thing, because I was filled with so many emotions. 
I can’t even truly describe how I feel right now after having finished it. I think the feeling that comes closest to describing it, is being in love. My heart is bursting from the feeling of having found my one true love, but is also tinged with a bit of sorrow because this was the last book. The last book. My favorite series of all time has come to an end.
I feel like I have been looking for love, and just when I found it, I had to say goodbye. So the feeling is bittersweet. 

The story picks up right where ‘World After’ left us. 
Penryn and Raffe are on the run and desperately trying to find a doctor who can stich Raffe’s wings back on. 
They have to deal with a lot throughout the story. The humans are acting desperate and crazy, Uriel (an angel) are trying to start the apocalypse and there is a bounty on Penryn’s head. And in midst all the chaos Penryn and Raffe have to decide who they are loyal to: Their own kind or each other. 

QUOTE: “Oh, she could have handled the killing hands like the truest warrior,” says Raffe proudly. “It’s the little naked worms that make her tremble.”
“Maybe we should call her the maggot slayer,” says Howler.
The others chuckle.

I have always liked Penryn Young, the female main character. From the very beginning in Angelfall and all the way through End of Days she has been a character I loved and could relate to. She has always been brave, selfless and strong. But I also love the little things about her. Like the fact that she still misses her life from before the angels came, and that she has feelings toward Raffe even though she isn’t sure she should. All those qualities make her very human and very likeable. I could easily picture myself in her shoes, and isn’t that what reading is all about?

QUOTE: Raffe arches his brow at me. “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. Someone you can be proud of.” He waves his hand at the Watchers. “There’s nobody like that in this lot.”
I glare at him. “I’ll be sure to pass him by you first before I” – settle for – “choose him.”
“You do that. I’ll let him know what’s expected of him.”
“Assuming he survives your interrogation,” says Howler. 
“Big assumption,” says Cyclone. 
“I’d like to be there to watch,” says Hawk. “Should be interesting.”

The other main character of the story is of course the amazing Archangel Raphael aka. Raffe. And what can I say other than, I love him. Madly. Forever!

He is definitely at the very top of my ‘book-boyfriend’ list. 

I loved being on this journey with Penryn, but I definitely also loved experiencing Raffe’s journey. 
When we first met him in Angelfall he was just your typical angel and he barely trusted Penryn, and definitely didn’t like her, because he was very prejudiced about humans. 
But THEN, toward the ending of that book he softened up toward her. And it has been a pleasure “watching” him reevaluate his view of humans and angels ever since. 

Raffe is such a strong character. I loved that he is loyal and protective, but he is not trying to be a hero and an alpha male – at times he is that, but he isn’t trying to be. 
He protected Penryn, but he also let her be her own self and fight her own battles, he just watched over her, and it made my heart melt!

QUOTE: “What’s wrong with going with me?” I ask. 
“No one wants to be stuck with love birds.” Howler shakes his head. 
“Awkward,” says Cyclone

Raffe and Penryn’s relationship has been under a slooow development since the first book. I loved that everything happened so slowly, because it made me anticipate and appreciate the small, swoony moments between them more, and it also made sure that I didn’t know what would happen to them in this book. It could really go a lot of ways. They could end up together, but they could also end up going their separate ways, both choices would have been realistic, so I was flying through the pages to figure out what would happen to them. 

Without revealing too much I can say that there were definitely swoony moments between them – this book showed a really cute side of their relationship, and I loved it. 
And I loved that everything wasn’t spelled out. This isn’t a typical love story where the guy and the girl pine after each other, no the love in this book is really subtle. It’s all about the glances and small things that they do, and it had such a huge impact on me. 

QUOTE: He reaches out as if he can’t help himself and runs his forefinger along the shoulder of the dress. “If I were human, I’d plow the nicest farm for you.”

What I love most about the book, and the entire series, is that it makes me feel so much. I was literally a quivering mess because my emotions were all over the place while I was reading. I felt it all. Anticipation, fear, sadness, bone-crushing sorrow, joy, love and the most dominant feeling of all: HUGE SWOONY FANGIRL ATTACKS!

I was crying a lot more than I should have. Yes, some things were sad and the tears were definitely okay for that. But I cried when things were good as well, because when they were good, they were so good, and my emotions just had to come out somehow. 

I have of course experienced other books that have made me feel a ton of emotions, but none like this. This book is just so silently powerful that it made everything overflow. 

An example is whenever Raffe showed just a glimpse of emotion, I was a goner. Because he is the type that doesn’t show his emotions very often, so when he did my inner fangirl freaked out. I have truly never experienced anything quite like it. At times I was like *speaking to myself* ‘okay, chill down. It’s just a book, and fictional characters! You are embarrassing yourself.’ But really, I didn’t care. 

QUOTE: Josiah looks at me, then back at Raffe. “Does she need to be here?”
“Apparently, she does,” says Raffe. “It turns out that she’s the only one I can trust to watch my back.”
I stand a little taller when he says that.

.. And now, I’m sitting here feeling both really happy and satisfied, but also a bit lost, because I’m not ready to let go. I’m not ready to let go of this world, I’m not ready to let go of Penryn and I’m definitely not ready to let go of Raffe. I’ll never be ready. 
So, I think I’ll read the series all over again, and then we’ll see if I’m finally able to move on after that. 
But really, thank you to Susan Ee for writing these amazing books. No books have ever made such a huge impact on me like these three have. So I will forever be thankful, and holding my breath until she writes a new book. 

QUOTE: Then he presses his lips to mine. His warmth spreads out from my lips down into my chest and stomach. Time stops, and I forget 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.
