ARC for Review 

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?

The world has gone crazy everyone is crazy, crazy, crazy!

The end of the first book was like explosions everywhere…I’m absolutely going to keep spoilers out of this review for World After but I might slip on a few something’s from the first installment. The author brings out some nightmarish big guns for this…in other words no sophomore slump. The things that occur in this installment are definitely Urban Fantasy, I loved the authors imagination in this fantastically scary new world. The grotesque and gruesome are still here and the urgency in finishing this book was just as prevalent as before.

The Story
, sigh Penryn is so lost. Almost dying put a lot of things into perspective but even though her family is back together there is something terribly wrong. The unfurling of what is wrong was magnificently executed…That’s not all folks there is a BRILLIANT twist that had me jumping for joy! Like I’m pretty sure I did a herkie…so good! A wonderful fast paced action packed story where everyone is still lost but key players have been identified and we are working towards a resolution. Wahoo!! Desperation mingles with lighthearted humor at just the right moments keeping things hopeful while the rest of the world crumbles…OH!!! REVENGE!!! YES!!

The Characters
, as I mentioned in a previous review of the first installment Penryn stole my heart. She still has it…Raffe…Jury is still out but I did get some fuzzy feels. I would love to go into further detail but I can’t give anything away so I’ll just say read it and find out. Penryn learns more about herself and the lengths she will go to for what is just. Regardless of the situation she is absolutely altruistic…I love that she always thinks of her sister as being the selfless one but time after time Penryn proves she too is selfless. This girl is able to hold an ARCHANGEL SWORD! Pffffffshhhhhhhh…I’m not sure if you know how big of a big deal that is…






It’s a pretty big deal… 

Argh!! I wish I could explain why without giving something pretty incredible away but…READ THIS SERIES NOW!! Then you’ll know ;). Mom is still crazy…Spy Masters kick butt…the bad guys get back handed and Paige is wonderful…I love her.

The end, I had to remind myself to breath ish got even crazier than Penryn’s mom and she is Bat Poop Cray, Cray. The world and the reader is still lost but a lot of pieces of the puzzle have been put into place. I will say there are a few epic showdowns. From hand to hand and sword to gun to heals to kitchen knives there isn’t a dull moment. When Penryn faces danger at the end she is a different person but still wonderful and still fighting for her family and for humanity. I cannot wait to read the final installment I just know it’s going to be wonderful!! OH MY GOSH…what if it’s not?!! I.Will.Die…Seriously folks…Okay so anyone that is into angels, strong human spirit, butt kicking, back round house kicks, or air needs to read this! I highly recommend this series!!

5.0 Paralysis, Death, Devil’s Wife, Scathe, Gruesome Doll, Airport, Scorpions, Runaway, Police Car, Hero, Pier, Video, Worm, Tracker, Pooky Bear, Bridal Bear, Blond Twins, Apocalypse, Judgment Day, Reunion, Leopard-Spotted Shar-Pei, Lead Sword, Shattered Blade, Control, Swarm, White Wings, The Purist Unwavering Love of Two Sisters Filled Stars!!

5 Star disclaimer…I don’t do this often guys in fact it’s like less than 4% Raffe and Penryn don’t even KISS in this installment BUT THAT’S NOT WHATS THIS IS ABOUT…so if you are looking for that then you will disagree with my 5 star…This is so much more than romance this is about the struggle of survival against all odds with beautiful twists but all throughout the strength of the human soul is prevalent and shines through Penryn…I love that and that’s whats up with the out of character 5 star review in a second installment.

  1. I'm so getting the hint that I need to read this series. :)

  2. *Eyes StuckInBooks - yes. yes, you do need to read this series.* Anyhoo, this book sealed the deal for me when it came out last year. I was itching for that last book after reading this. That moment when Raffe realized that it was Penryn, I screamed. I think that what started the major fangirling for me. Penryn was bad axx in this one. Her and Pookie Bear!
