book re·view : End of Days by Susan Ee


5 Stars.


End of Days is the explosive conclusion to Susan Ee’s bestselling Penryn & the End of Days trilogy.

After a daring escape from the angels, Penryn and Raffe are on the run. They’re both desperate to find a doctor who can reverse the twisted changes inflicted by the angels on Raffe and Penryn’s sister. As they set off in search of answers, a startling revelation about Raffe’s past unleashes dark forces that threaten them all.

When the angels release an apocalyptic nightmare onto humans, both sides are set on a path toward war. As unlikely alliances form and strategies shift, who will emerge victorious? Forced to pick sides in the fight for control of the earthly realm, Raffe and Penryn must choose: Their own kind, or each other?


I have so many feelings about this, ALL OF THEM! I have loved this story since I randomly found the book and bought it without thinking much of it, and just snowballed from there, I just love the series and I don’t think I could have asked for a better ending.

I don’t usually like reviewing books in series other than the first one just because of spoilers, but I will make exceptions now and then and this is one of them. So you have been warned, spoilers galore ahead.

After all past shenanigans, Penryn and Raffe are together for most of this one, and that brought the palpable tension between them that is just SO good, specially because now they felt more conscious of what they felt for each other. And to be honest, that with the fact that she knew she wanted to be with her people and him vice versa set the tone of the book, it kept the the tension helped with the pacing and the plot still kept the reader guessing. 

Also, character development was on point, we got to learn a lot more about certain characters without someone having to sit and tell a story, we learned while characters were experiencing the story, witch is the best way to do it.

I heard complaints about how Ee decided to close off the trilogy, but I enjoyed every word of it, I felt like it was true to the story and to the characters she built.
