World After by Susan Ee Review and Giveaway!!!!


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12983100-world-after


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!

  12. "World After is a great book but Angelfall still is my favorite book in the series."*nods* "World After is not a perfect book but it was pretty darn good." YES. I've listened it on audiobook so skipping ahead wasn't an option for me, but I agree the beginning wasn't as strong as I hoped it would be.
    "can't wait for book 3" ME TOO!!!
    Great review!

  26. Aw, I love that you kissed it. I've heard amazing things about Angelfall, but I haven't managed to read it yet. It sounds like a solid series.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Aww Raffe isn't as present? Boo-urns! I definitely want to read this one soon though and probably re-read or at least sift through book one first it feels like it's been a decade since I read that one! I rarely enjoy book 2 as much as the first so I'm not surprised it wasn't better but it sounds like a solid sequel!

  28. I read Angelfall recently and absolutely adored it. I'm glad you enjoyed World After but it's sad to know that Raffe isn't in the book as much. I agree that I love the chemistry between him and Penryn. Thanks for the Great Giveaway :)

  31. It's too bad Raffi wasn't in this one as much as you would have liked. I am pretty excited about this one but it's been so long since I have read Angelfall so I think I might struggle in the beginning just like you did.

    PS. In the entry form I put that my twitter username was jarndt08 but it's actually @XpressoJenni (I forgot I changed it DOH!) Thanks for the giveaway!
