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?

What to say? What to say? First I want to express my desire to have an angel by the name of Raffe show up on my doorstep! Second I want to reiterate my love for this book series!

World After starts up right where Angelfall ends.  The truth is Penryn and Raffe spend most of the book apart which for me was very disappointing but only because I like it when he's around.  We really get to see Penryn prove her worth, she and her family are put through quite a bit but Penryn remains strong proving she can take care of herself.  We get more of a glimpse into the relationships between Penryn, her mom, and Paige.  It becomes clear that they are her only weakness.

There is a lot of action, how can there not be when the characters are constantly running for their lives?  But unfortunately it did have a middle book feel to it.  At the end it seemed like nothing had been solved, which you kind of expect when starting a middle book.  If things are solved then that would make it a final book and I'm not ready for this ride to end. I can't get enough of Penryn and Raffe, I hope to have more in the next book.  I really hope Susan Ee can figure out a way for them to be together in the end.  That would rock my socks off!



Susan Ee has eaten mezze in the old city of Jerusalem, surfed the warm waters of Costa Rica, and played her short film at a major festival. She used to be a lawyer but loves being a writer because it allows her imagination to bust out and go feral.

Her debut novel was the bestselling fantasy thriller, Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days series). Angelfall has been translated into 19 languages and the film rights have been optioned by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Good Universe.
