January Books

   At the beginning of the year I set myself the Goodreads challenge of reading 50 books for the year. I have taken the pictures from the Goodreads website. Here is how I have been getting on with it.            

                                                                 Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days #1)    
 Angelfall by Susan Ee is set after the apocalypse of angels has hit the planet. This follows Penryn's struggle to find her disabled sister Paige who was captured when Penryn intervened in a group of angels attacking another angel (Raffe). In order to find Paige, Penryn needs Raffe as much as he needs her help. Although this is more of a teen read I really quite enjoyed this and went straight onto the next book.

                                                                 World After (Penryn & the End of Days, #2)

World After by Susan Ee is the sequel to Angelfall. Having found Paige, joy is short lived. Paige is so traumatised by what has been done to her that she is mistaken for a monster by the resistance and flees. Penryn and her mum take up the search for her again and in doing so discover the full horror of what the angels have planned for mankind. Will Raffe come through for them, or will he put his own needs first? This series isn't finished yet, the third book is yet to be written. This left me wanting to know what happens next and I look forward to reading the next book when it is finally released.

                                                               The God King (Heirs of the Fallen, #1)

 The God King by James A West took me forever to read. I found it really longwinded and difficult to get into. Mercenary Kian Valera is tricked by Prince Varis, who thinks he has made a pact with the ruler of demons to gain ultimate control. A horror is unleashed from the thousand hells, the three moons crash and burn and the sacred tower falls down. Kian supported by Ellonlef (the one he comes to love) is the only one that can stop Prince Varis and so leads the battle. This is the first of four books, and I doubt I will be reading the others.
