Penryn & the End of Days #2 World After

Presenting Penryn & the End of Days #2 World After by Susan Ee.

Here is the summary of the book:

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?

Sitting tight and snug onto the Penryn-Raffe bandwagon, the sequel World After proved to be just as thrilling and a quick read as the first book. Continuing on from where the first book ended in that horrible cliffhanger. Penryn is reunited with her mother and sister. Poor Raffe got the back break with his drive to be whole again. Things are still uncertain and the Angels are still a ruthless bunch. This is 'World After' and things have just escalated from bad to worst.

Just as atmospherically dark and chilling as the first book, affording us a closer look to characters and situations not seen before. Raffe who is absent bodily throughout the majority of the book is available spiritually throughout the memories of his Angel-sword and Penryn comes to see him bit by bit the hardened warrior, the ages had turned him into. Of course being experimented upon Paige is also no longer the sweet girl her big sister knew. And the mother is a case of a different league altogether.

Still following the easy to understand script and thrilling kick-ass, Susan Ee maintains a tight lease on her plot dosing out her vivid imageries bit by bit. Be it the nefarious plans of the Angels with mighty proportions of about the Apocalypse or the dry and sarcastic humor as evidenced from the first book to balance out the dark and gory. Although i'm still waiting to read the exact reason that lead the Angels to come to Earth but aside from this disappointment Ee has got a power packed sequel replenished in marvelous world building, strong and dependable characters, vivid and spine-chilling horrors and certain swagger for drama ....... Lets hope 'End of Days' will hold all the answers for us.

"Dark and exhilarating and a spine-chilling breathless sequel"

  1. I'm so happy you're reading this series Aparajita! I didn't like this one as much as Angelfall (probably because of ALL of the sci-fi), but I loved learning more about the angels!

    I just finished End of Days. SOO GOOD!
