Dear Susan Ee,

Could I just like... live with you until you finish the whole series?? I realize it may be creepy and all, but I wouldn't disturb you or anything. I would just... be there... reading every word you put down and when you have other things to do, I'll just go to my corner and wait. Occasionally you would find that there's some food missing from your fridge, but that's not so bad.. right?
I would have to use the toilet too though... and the shower... can't stink up the place.

This is a review for the much awaited conclusion of Penryn and The End of Days trilogy. I'm still waiting for this much awaited conclusion because I refuse to believe what I just read was it.

Nope

It's not that End of Days was necessarily bad or poorly written. No, it's not that. The writing is consistent with her previous novels and the novel itself was reasonably satisfactory. But I didn't want satisfactory for the end of Penryn and Raffe's journey.

This was supposed to be epic. Earth shattering. The

"Someone has sprayed graffiti on the ceiling. A crude knight stands alone with his sword drawn against a fire-breathing dragon that is ten times his size. The dragon's tail disappears into darkness where the window light fades deep into the store. Beside the knight are the words “Where Have All the Heroes Gone?”

“This is the way the series ends:
Not with a bang, but a whimper.”


― T.S. Emily

Though World After wasn't bad, I think this series reached a glorious high at the end of Angelfall and never quite reached the same heights again. It's just speculation, but part of me wonders if the author had no idea where she wanted to take it after the first book. Especially given that Angelfall was self-published back at a time when that pretty much guaranteed no one would read it. Everyone was surprised when it be

I'm the type of person who loves blood, gore, and explosions. The more the better. Or so I thought.

Years ago, I watched this movie in theatres. Battle: Los Angeles. It was AWESOME at first. Explosions! Death! People being blown into bits. Boom! Boom! Pow! Every other minute something exploded. It was great.

For about half an hour.

And then I just got SO bored. Like when was this going to end? There was too much action that it bored the hell out of me. I lost all attachment and enjoyment in the mov

I need Susan to write. Not to eat, sleep, bathe or have toilet breaks. Just write. And write fast. I demand this book. And I demand Raffryn.

I HAZ A SAD AND I NEED TO TALK RANT ABOUT IT.

This is, without a doubt, the most disappointed I have ever been by a book. Which means that this review is going to be looooong. And spoiler-ridden. Read at your own risk.

You know why I loved the first two books in this series so much? Because they are so different than most YA out there these days. I loved this series for the same reason I love the Soul Eater series. Their MCs are a lot alike. Like Meda in the Soul Eater series, Penryn is was intel

I came in without any expectation and went home with so much more than I gambled for. I ended up being such a good fan. Most trilogies usually start with a bang, but when it comes to the conclusion, it becomes a train wreck. Susan Ee surpassed that wildest expectation without even trying.

End of Days follows shortly after where World After left it off, Penryn and Raffe are trying to find a doctor that could stitch back Raffe’s angel wings and to find a cure for her sister

What a disappointing finale, it was so generic what with Penryn's constant swooning and angsting over Raffe whilst her sister and the world were imploding around her, her nauseating romance with Raffe was all that mattered to her. I really thought this series would stand out from the rest of the YA crap - even though World After was rubbish, Angelfall had a lot going for it and I was expecting the same from this. Unfortunately, when it came to down to it, End of Days was another YA serie

Dear Susan Ee,
I'm ordering you to write and finish this book as soon as possible.
Please, take your time writing this, Ms. Ee. Really. 'Coz I'll just wait impatiently here. I will. I must. Because what can I do? It's not like I can torture the sequel out of you, right

A part of me wants to give this five stars and another part of me wants to give it one star, so I guess I'll settle on three stars.

Action, Pacing, Plot: Five stars.
Writing and Supporting Characters: Four stars.
World-Building: Three stars.
Penryn: Two Stars.
Romance, Resolution, and That Ending: One star. Pffft.

It's so hard to let this series go! I've adored Penryn & the End of Days ever since reading the first book, and now I can say without a doubt that it's a favorite of mine. Each and every book has been incredibly fun and emotionally satisfying. I have to admit, though, that when Susan Ee first announced that the series would be three books long, the prayer candles started to come out. I was terrified about what would happen to my ship in End of Days; would it be the end of them? *d

Powerful conclusion to one-of-a-kind series!



"We are soldiers, Penryn. Legendary warriors willing to make legendary sacrifices. We do not ask. We do not choose."

Since this is the last book in series and I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't read it yet, I'm going to keep my review sweet and short. Keep in mind that End of Days has quite different dynamics than previous instalments. So if you expect another Angefall and World After, you will be disappointed. Once I got used to this diff

I honestly didn't expect to like this series as much as I did but it was so great!
This was a fantastic close, even if it was a bit convenient.
The characters are what made this book. I love Penryn and Raffe so muuuuuuuuch.
Overall, pretty fantastic trilogy.

UPDATE: I lowered my rating (again) because the more I think about the book the less I like how it turned out.

“Who wants to go to heaven anymore? There's nothing but angels there.”

Since I'm a bit conflicted let's make this review (positive things) vs. (well that is pretty self-explanatory).

It wasn't a bad book. While it wasn't as good of a conclusion as Dreams of Gods and Monsters or Shadowfever and it didn't give me a million and six feelings like Ignite Me, I enjoyed it and I think it con

I’M REALLY SAD THAT THIS IS OVER :(((( this series was spectacular as a whole! This book was great but it did have something about it that did not quite put it up to my expectations. The character development was fantastic, the relationship growth of everyone was great and also THIS BOOK HAD THE CUTEST MOMENTS.

It's been over a year and a half since I read the first two books so I was expecting to go into this completely blindly but this book was really helpful in reminding me of previous events! I read the entire thing and never once read a line where I had to go back and think "wait, what?" I love Raffe and Penryn's relationship. I'm a sucker for those superhuman boys matched with normal human girls, I gotta admit. It made me swoon. However, this book (as well as the earlier books...) are a bit frust ...more

Man, that trilogy was such a trainwreck. Where was the editor for this book? What was he doing? And why didn’t he tell Ee that a chapter should be longer than TWO PAGES?

It was so poorly written, it actually managed to make me cringe and put down the book in disgust several times, which I didn’t think was possible.
So in the second book, there was hardly any romance at all, but in this one, the romance is suddenly everywhere and so abruptly sexual it was intensely awkward. What’s with the sleepi

So, where do I start from? Do I start from the beginning? Well, I was and still am pumped for this book, for this series. It's a great series and although Susan Ee planned for it to be a 5 book series, it ended up being just 3 books, and this is the final one.

I'm sad that there won't be any more books coming from this series but I'd sure as hell love to read some other book Ee releases in the future. I'm quite sure, it's going to be amazing.

So strange to see this series ending after all these years. I remember when it was a wee indie that could, pressed upon me by friend after friend. How far we've come! Excited to see how Penryn's story ends. (And very glad we don't have to wait for another 3 books to find out!)
