So… I stormed through the first 2 books, and had to wait to read the third.  I’ll say my bit on each book in order, and try hard to mix it all up.  I’m quite surprised on how I took to these books,

Angelfall: The beginning just dropped me straight into it.  I instantly had a liking for Penryn, Raffe and Penryn’s sister Paige.  Even her Mum who is a bit.. challenging? I liked the style of the book, and even the storyline.  Penryn and Raffe work off each other well, and I ended wanting them to get “it” over and done with, it was sort of painful!  Anyway, I was hooked!! I wanted to know how it was going to end, and how it was going to work out.  I didn’t have a choice but to carry on!! Well written, gripping and it just sucked me right in to it!! A well deserved 4/5!

World After: Picking up immediately where Angelfall, it dumped straight into the thick of things and made me continue my very unexpected journey with Penryn and Raffe.  I stilled liked them, still wanted to get “it” over and done with, but then also didn’t want them to. If it had happened, then I think it wouldn’t have continued to work as well as it does.  Again, it was well written, enchanting and just instantly great!! Another 4/5!

End of Days:  I’ve come to conclusion I need to read slower. I zoomed through this, desperate to find out how it ended!! I did find it rushed in places, and didn’t have the same oomph as the first 2 books but I thoroughly enjoyed it just as much as the others.  The ended was what I sort of expected, sometimes it annoys me that people think Love will break all barriers down, for once I’d like a book that didn’t happen in.  Anyway, although rushed in places, it was wonderfully written, the right amount of drama and enough cheesy romance to make me cringe. Yet again, a very well deserved 4/5!
