In this sequel to the bestselling fantasy thriller, Angelfall, the survivors of the angel apocalypse begin to scrape back together what's left of the modern world.
When a group of people capture Penryn's sister Paige, thinking she's a monster, the situation ends in a massacre. Paige disappears. Humans are terrified. Mom is heartbroken.
Penryn drives through the streets of San Francisco looking for Paige. Why are the streets so empty? Where is everybody? Her search leads her into the heart of the angels' secret plans where she catches a glimpse of their motivations, and learns the horrifying extent to which the angels are willing to go.
Meanwhile, Raffe hunts for his wings. Without them, he can't rejoin the angels, can't take his rightful place as one of their leaders. When faced with recapturing his wings or helping Penryn survive, which will he choose?
I was so excited for World After to come out that when I got my copy I kissed it. I started reading it right away. I was expecting to get sucked in from page one. What I wasn’t expecting was to feel lost to the point where I had to put the book aside and try to skim-read Angelfall. That helped a lot. After that, I felt more comfortable with the book and enjoyed it a lot.
World After is a great book but Angelfall still is my favorite book in the series. I think what made me feel like this was the fact that Raffe wasn’t as present as he was on Angelfall. Penry's and Raffe's amazing chemistry was one of the aspects that made me fall in love with book one. I only wanted more of him.
Even though my Raffe wasn’t in Worldafter as much as I wanted him to, the book was still a great addition to the series. Penryn was kickass like always, and her sister just broke my heart! I felt a strong connection towards her. This little girl was such a big character in this book. There’s this scene almost at the end of the book where Page does something that gave me chills. Chills!!! And I think I've said this before, but I have to say it again Penry's mom freaks me out! I love her, though.
World After is not a perfect book but it was pretty darn good. There's action, plot twists, heartbreak and hope in every page. I can't wait for book 3. Let's hope it doesn't take too long!
