The book, by Susan Ee, has a very interesting backstory. Originally a self-published e-book, ‘Angelfall’ started off as a modified NaNo novel with Ee’s goal to write 80,000 words in 6 weeks. What came out of this self-challenge was an novel that ranked No. 1 on Goodreads’ list of best independent novels and was a finalist for the 2011 Cybils award for best young adult fantasy and sci-fi books before being picked up by Amazon Children’s Publishing and officially being released by them last August. Her second book in the series yet untitled is set to be released next fall.
Here’s a synopsis for ‘Angelfall:’
'Six weeks after angels of the apocalypse descend to demolish the modern world, street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back… even if that means making a deal with an enemy angel Raffe, a warrior who has been left bleeding and wingless. Having only each other to rely on for survival, the two journey towards the angel’s stronghold where she must risk everything to rescue her sister and he must decide whether to put himself at the mercy of his enemies for the chance to be made whole again.'"
