Summary(from Goodreads)

It has been fifty-five years since the angels of the Apocalyptic War attempted to wipe out humanity. Now a new nation has been built where alchemy is forbidden, and angels fear for their lives as they hide among the mortals.
The city’s leaders share one view on the ancestors of angels: shoot first, no questions.
When her twin brother falls into a strange coma, sixteen-year-old Chela Prizeon vows to discover her role among these exiles, the royal angels known as the Lost Immortals.
Chela’s only hope lies with the mysterious, but infuriating leader of a rebel group. But can she trust this boy, someone who can control her dreams and her heart.
Escape into a world filled with celestial creatures, fascinating villainy, high-stake choices, and forbidden romance.

Wow! This was such a great book! It took me a while to figure out what was going on in this world because everything was so different, but once I got my bearings, I loved it so much! KaSonndra Leigh really creates such a rich, and detailed world that it is insane to think that it used to be the United States. It’s so different. I especially loved how everything was there for a reason, every person, every place, and every item came into play later on in the book. And not always in the ways that I had imagined. That is great story telling.(it is more like great world building)

Chela is so kick butt and awesome. I admired her so much! She will stop at nothing to find out what happened to her brother. I love that she questions everything. She will do whatever it takes, no matter what stands in her way. And boy oh boy did she have a lot of obstacles in her path. But she never even faltered- she just keep plowing right through everything. And she even attracted the attention of multiple guys. The guy factor was a problem for me. She has this nice, sweet, loyal best friend who clearly cares about her a lot. Those are all the things that I love in male characters, so it was really hard for me to see him competing with Faris. I have such a soft spot for Jalen. He is so awesome.

Faris is pretty great too, but I kind of wanted it to be Jalen right from the start. Faris is a good guy too, so he did have that going for him. I really grew to like him and I ended up wanting Chela and Faris to get together but I still felt a little conflicted with good ole Jalen. I guess we will see what happens in book 2. But I do have one complaint about Faris. What is it with all the guys in books lately being described as “hot with long hair”? Sorry, but long hair on a guy just does not do it for me. So whenever they would describe Faris’ ponytail, I would conveniently not picture him that way.

When Copper Suns Fall is such an excellent book! I went into the book expecting to enjoy it and I came out of it wanting to read it all over again. I loved it so much more than I thought I would!! It exceeded all of my expectations. The world just sucks you right in and the characters really come to life. Great book, and I cannot wait to read the next one!
