It's been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended 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. Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel. Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl. Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival. Together, they journey toward the angels' stronghold in San Francisco where Penryn will risk everything to rescue her sister, and Raffe will put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.

Professional reviews

"Humanity has killed the archangel Gabriel, an act that leads to war. Penryn, her sister, Paige, and their paranoid-schizophrenic mother stumble across a group of angels who are fighting with each other. Paige is kidnapped, and Penryn saves the angel Raffe, who has had his wings cut off. They set out to find Paige and to see if Raffe can be healed. Caitlin Davies narrates with the energetic growl of a confident young woman who is fighting for her family. Her portrayal of the girls' mentally ill mother is striking, full of strident tones and almost crackling with distress. Although Davies's male voices are never quite believable, she more than makes up for this by handling all the fast-paced action sequences easily and keeping the drama of this supernatural romance in check.
