Title: World After
Series: Penryn & the end of days #2
Author: Susan Ee
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?
I absolutely am loving this series and I am still berating myself for not reading this sooner!
So we are back with Pen. Raffe is not with her after thinking she is dead. But she is reunited with her Mum and her sister, Paige, well for a bit anyway and they just need to survive.
Pen’s Mum is crazier than ever but I can’t help thinking there is a point to this that will be revealed? Whilst I’m here guessing, her Dad is also mentioned a bit so I’m wondering if he will feature anywhere?
Paige is changed and even more wild than before and poor old Pen is just a 17 year old girl who has had all this thrust upon her and has taken on the title of hero because she is desperately trying to keep her family together.
But she has her trusty sword, she has the fighting spirit of the human race and she sort of has the resistance.
One of my fave bits was when Pooky Bear shows her some amazing stuff and my jaw dropped! I want a sword like that!
Then another when the angels gruesome plans are revealed, my jaw dropped! It was just horrible and vile, I couldn’t stop reading!
But…..I cannot tell you the anticipation I felt waiting for some romance between Pen and Raffe….and it never came! I know it’s forbidden but we’ve had one kiss and I WANT MORE *stomps foot* paahahaaa!!!
I will leave you with my final thought before I run to get the next book….I need to get myself an angel!
