My Rating- 4 STARS
Synopsis- 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?
My Review- World After for me was a fun read, though it didn't quite hold the quality of the first book in the series. I gave Angelfall 5 stars because it was different, sweet, adventurous and that emotion between Raffe and Penryn stuck with me for days after reading it.
World After didn't seem to have the depth the first book did. However, this felt like the book that is going to set the others in the series up nicely. A lot of travelling and plot setting was made throughout the book, showing us what the Angels are up to and the background events leading up to such a devastating apocalypse. The writing style is fun and the love that went in to this book is obvious and so I enjoyed it and, as always that touching romance between Raffe and Penryn got under my skin. It isn't insta-love, it isn't that 'omg this man is all I see and nothing else matters' filling every page. There are believable problems between the two characters, life shattering problems surrounding them, their own personal goals to pursue.
I liked this book, but I know I am going to really enjoy the next book.
