Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
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.
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.
No... I forgot I had already purchased and was disappointed by this title.
Caitlin is the only thing that kept me listening.
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.
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.
Loving books :)
Yes this book was amazing! I am ready for the third book. The story line is well executed.
The two main characters are great. I enjoy their weird relationship.
She really paints a great picture and does an amazing job with each character.
The ending of this book is unexpected and awesome!
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.
Love my family....along with guitars, cameras, and a good book!
This novel was definitely a little weaker than the first installment in the series. I really enjoyed AngelFall. World After was not a waste of my time, but the storyline seemed to meander a little more off track than the first. It felt as if Susan Ee lost her way a little bit, kind of like the sophomore slump with college athletes...not really sure how to proceed.
There were some touching moments, and some great scenes, but overall it fell short of my expectations. I also felt that Caitlin Davies got into a rut in the narration as well. She got a little too singsongy, and the character voices began to get on my nerves about a third of the way through the story.
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.
This book stands out from other YA novels, as the main character lacks the self absorbed whining that dominate the teen female leads in the genre.
The romance in this series so far develops nicely, is believable (within the boundaries of the plot!) and kind of charming, however, the romance doesn't dominate the action. So far despite a nicely developing romance, it also lacks the teenage angst and love triangles that have made YA paranormal novels a bit too formulaic of late!
Amazing, intense, and OMG
The whole thing
She brings the characters the life and I can feel each character's persona with her voice.
I got through it in a week.
Can't wait for the next book
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!
