Publisher's Summary

In this sequel to the best-selling 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?

    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!

    "YA romance with no angst or love triangle - HOORAH"
    Any additional comments?

    <br/>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. <br/><br/>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! <br/><br/>Highly recommend!

    "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.

    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.

    Story
    "I Want More!"

    This was another book to keep me up until 3 in the morning. This series is so exciting! It involves so much action that from the beginning, in book one, until now the end of book two, one is caught up in the story. Susan Ee's writing keeps you captured in her world.

    It was so long ago that I read the first book that I was a little worried that I would have to go back and read book one again to remember all that had happened but Ms. Ee does a marvelous job reacquainting the reader with 'World Before'and 'World During' that it all flows quite well as we step into 'World After'.

    Book one had us meeting Penryn, her little crippled sister, and their mentally ill mother. The world was hard enough for poor Penryn to live in then the Angels and Demons decided to cause the apocalypse. Survival was the theme in both of these books. But there is a minor (?) romance between Penryn and an angel.

    This book continues the survival, fighting, and romance. Penryn is quite the character and struggles to help her family and the other humans to survive. She learns to use the angel's sword and tries to save everyone. She is quite spunky and able to hold her own no matter what.

    I was about a third of the way in the Kindle version of the book when I realized that I had the Audible version of the book that I had purchased a while back. I must admit that the narrator, Caitlin Davies, was able to read the story exactly how I had been hearing it in my head. What is nice about having the audio version is you get to hear how the names should be pronounced. In this case I had been calling Raffe 'RAF' with a long 'A' sound and silent 'e'. Apparently it is 'Rawffa'. Sounds a lot better the right way, I must admit!

    Though almost all threads have been tied up, and the ending is sweet, there is enough to let me know there will be more. Yay! I do really enjoy this series. Oh, and those who don't believe in angels demons or the bible will still enjoy this series as a fantasy. I recommend it to all for a fun adventure.

    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.

    "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.

    I got through it in a week.

    "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!
