    Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.

    "Fan-freakin-tastic!"

    This was one epic sequel! It picks up right where Angelfall left off and continues with a very fast paced, action-packed, scary and very suspenseful story. Although it has a lot less romance to it, this book answers many lingering questions from the first one. Such as "why the angel apocalypse?".
    I loved that the author showed us more of Penryn's sister and mother. Not to mention all the wonderful Pooky Bear moments! It really added an important layer to the overall story. And that ending! Just wow! The wait for book 3 is going to be a long one.

    5 stars!

    Story
    "The second installment is very thrilling too."
    Where does World After rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is not the best but still a very fun unusual story with action, adventure, romance, horror, and humor.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the way humor was incorporated into the horror and action.


    What does Caitlin Davies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does an excellent job of bringing the characters to life. Very easy to listen too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, the first one I did, this one was good but not as thrilling as the first.

    Can't sit still or stay focused long enough to read a book. Audible is the only way I will give myself the opportunity to enjoy fiction.

    Story
    "I was so unimpressed by the World After."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No... I forgot I had already purchased and was disappointed by this title.


    Have you listened to any of Caitlin Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Caitlin is the only thing that kept me listening.


    Any additional comments?

    This is less character development more gore... There was not much that happened in this book... IN FACT SKIP THIS TITLE AND WAIT FOR THE THIRD BOOK. The author will be able to recap what has happened in this book in under 3 pages. Serious... not nearly as good as the first.

    "An Exciting Sequel"

    World After is a satisfying second book. It is exciting, funny, and kept my interest from beginning to end. The tension between the lead characters is charismatic and believable (for a young adult fantasy novel). The author develops the characters in a way that keeps them likable and keeps you rooting for them. Although the book may not appeal to someone looking for a steamy romance, it is acceptable for mid to late teen readers. The narration is excellent, and I am looking forward to the third book. FYI, I read that a movie is in the works for this book trilogy.

    "This book is a solid 4 and a half!"
    What made the experience of listening to World After the most enjoyable?

    The first book of the series started off a little weak with fresh ideas but got better towards the end. This book in the series way exceeds the first. I am very much looking forward to the 3rd book. Love it! Also, the narrator sounds young, but she can really spin different voices :)

    "WORLD AFTER - - - WONDERFUL BOOK"

    This second book Susan Ee wrote is as good as the first. Again, I would like to see a man do the mans voice, but keep a womans voice also. I sure hope there is another book or so, as this last one left me hanging. What a cliff hanger. What's going to happen next to Paige, Penryn and Raff???? Kept me wondering all through the book and the action is something else.

    "Totally gripping."

    I often get annoyed by the narrators on audio books, but Davies does a great job. Inventive story and a strong performance. Can't wait for part 3.

    "Amazing"
    If you could sum up World After in three words, what would they be?

    Amazing, intense, and OMG


    What did you like best about this story?

    The whole thing


    What does Caitlin Davies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brings the characters the life and I can feel each character's persona with her voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I got through it in a week.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next book

    "Fantastic sequel!"

    A spectacular book 2! The story continues at breakneck speed and stops just as abruptly. The plot is intricate, the characterisation is beautifully done. It's true that Penryn is another Katniss but the plot and themes are different enough that the similarities are superficial.

    Susan Ee's writing is a bit better than Suzanne Collins' and it shows in the pace of the books - there are no lulls. It's a great story. My only gripe is that I have to wait a year for the next one!
