This book had quite a few very intense scenes, a nice change from the previous books (but not something I want to go through again in the next one... I don't know what will happen now, but I really have no idea about how much worse it will get).
It wasn't anything like I expected and boy, SO much happened in those pages!!
Okay, can somebody please explain to me what the hell I've been reading for the past 12 hours or so?

I don't even know what to say about this book, all I know is that I feel like I was standing somewhere, minding my own business when suddenly a building nearby exploded. A minute later, six cars crash into each other on the other side of the street. While I'm running over there to help people out of their cars, a burning plane flies over, and when I finally make my way over there, I see the plane crashed into a train. Soon after that, another train crashes into what's left of those other two wrecks.
WTF WAS HAPPENING ALL THE TIME?? I DON'T EVEN KNOW!
Seriously, I have no effing clue on how I should feel about this.
Abby is... -frustrated sigh- And don't get me started on Travis.
They 'had' to sleep in the same bed together. Convenient much? She was supposedly 'completely oblivious' to the fact that the guy was turning into the Rambo version of a saint, and then everything that happened in and after Vegas just frustrated the crap out of me.
WELL NO SCREW IT, THIS ENTIRE BOOK WAS INFURIATING! GAH!
I honestly don't know if I liked this or hated this.
Screw it, I'm not even able to put my ramblings into words right now.
Edit: I read this again in December 2013, to prepare myself for the next one, and I really do still love love love it :)

MAN, I loved this! I can't believe I waited this long to read this thing (all the reviews my friends posted should have made it clear, don't you think?) and I'm so happy I finally did!
A broken world, filled with uncertainty, death and doom lurking around every corner.... Awesome! -fist pump-
Although it's something similar but very different, I couldn't help but be reminded of Dark Angel. I used to love that show (watch it if you can pretend to be oblivious to Miss Alba's amazing acting skills (yes, that was sarcasm, kids!)) We rely so very much on electricity and the safety of our own homes... Just imagining living in a broken down world is already scary enough. Seriously, think about it.
I could never stomach this if this ever got turned into a movie. There a lot of gore involved and I don't think there is a single scene where there isn't somebody who is bleeding (Raffe mostly).
I can't help but like Penryn. Looks like she had a hard life and things aren't exactly getting any easier. She is a bit slow on the uptake, I mean an angel with that kind of introduction who tells her his name is Raffe? I'm not into religion, but that probably would have been my first question. I just feel so bad about his wings, and his sword :( Gah, poor baby.
One thing did bother me though: the world broke down about 6 weeks ago, and it's too big of a wreck to be believable. I think more time should have passed for things to get that bad, but I can understand why it was written that way... I just hope certain things will be clarified once we get to read the next book. (can't wait! ♥ )(less)
