Book Description

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?

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up—In this sequel to Angelfall, Ee brings listeners back to her postapocalyptic world where angels have descended and wreaked havoc on the world below. The angels in this drama are not the beautiful, godly, kind beings of lore, but instead are deadly, heartless creatures who experiment on humans and wish to eradicate them from the Earth. The story continues with Penryn struggling to keep her schizophrenic mother and recovering test subject sister, Paige, together. Things are beginning to look up until an angry mob abducts Paige because of her grotesque physique. Penryn and her mother make it their goal to find their ghastly family member, but they fall into a trap set by the angels. As the story unfolds, listeners will learn the fate of Raffe and the other angels who have made Earth a living nightmare with their hybrid scorpion creations. Narrator Caitlin Davies expertly narrates the graphic descriptions of carnage without a flinch. Vivid images make this title more suitable for older listeners. (Sinister music signals the beginning and end of each disk.) Listeners should have some familiarity with the first title in the series or they'll likely become lost. The ending hints at a third installment of the series. Purchase where the first is popular.—Amanda Schiavulli, Finger Lakes Library System, NY


“Addictive. Seriously and completely addictive.” —Glamour UK

“Angelfall blew our little cashmere socks off with its totally amazeballs tale of angels going all Armageddon on our asses. The sequel keeps our hearts pounding and fingers fumbling to turn the pages as our plucky heroine, Penryn, finds herself part of the human Resistance… Basically, it’s bloody brilliant.” —Star Magazine

“Action packed and tense, [World After] will delight even sci-fi refuseniks.” —Sunday Mirror

“Another wonderful installment in the Penryn & the End of Days series. Susan Ee is a wonderful storyteller who paints a dark and terrifying world.” —Night Owl Reviews

“Devotees of the paranormal will get their angel fix here.” —Voice of Youth Advocates

5.0 out of 5 stars A horrifyingly good sequel November 19, 2013
When this book showed up on my doorstep I promised myself (while happy dancing, it should be noted) that I would read slowly and stretch this out to savor it. Who the hell was I kidding?! I was doomed as soon as I opened the cover. This book kept me up ALL night! I didn’t just “enjoy” this book I loved every single minute of the ride. It’s been a few days now and I’m still having trouble writing a review that doesn’t solely consist of omg squee omg aghhh *random animal noises* (don’t even ask).

Susan Ee somehow manages to take everything I love most in books and blend it all together perfectly. Intense action, creeptastic horror, witty banter, sexual tension off the charts, complex characters- the gang’s all here!

Penryn has got to be one of my favorite YA heroines of all time. She’s bold, courageous, stubborn, selfless, smart and so strong yet despite all the hardship she has been through she’s still very empathetic to others. Even when she does stupid things she’s smart enough to realize this is a bad idea but her conscience won’t allow her to just walk away. The brief moments she gets to expose her vulnerability and insecurity are so touching. It is a nice reminder that beneath her strength and bravado this is still a young, inexperienced girl. Her stammering during the few romantic scenes made me laugh out loud and cringe for her at the same time.

Her family makes me think my family isn’t weird after all. As creepy as her mom was in the last book she kicks it up a notch this time around. I think I’m more terrified of her holding a lipstick now than the cattle prod she is so fond of. There’s a scene between her and Pen that made my heart hurt.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Sequel! November 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
To be honest, I wasn't sure how World After would turn out because most sequels don't live up to their predecessor. The good news is that World After is even better than Angelfall, a feat that I didn't even think was possible. World After retains the humor, kick-ass action scenes, fast-paced plot and absolutely amazing characters that readers came to love in Angelfall. World After easily is one of my favorite books of 2013.

Penryn and Raffe are definitely one of my favorite literary couples, they are honestly perfect for each other. They both complement each other in fierceness and wit making their romance something to look forward to. The romance between Raffe and Penryn is minimal as there is more of a focus on Penryn's journey to find Paige and Raffe's journey to reclaim his wings. The few romantic interactions between Penryn and Raffe are absolutely perfect.

World After is filled with non-stop fast-paced action scenes where Penryn really kicks butt. Sorry Katniss and Tris, but Penryn is easily my favorite heroine ever with her epic fighting skills. Susan Ee really knows how to write immersive action scenes that are extremely easy to visualize. I physically couldn't stop reading because I was so engrossed in the action scenes.

Characterwise, we see a lot more of Penryn's sister and mother which was a huge plus on Ee's part. Paige is a character that I love, but at the same time, I'm absolutely terrified whenever she made an appearance. All of Ee's characters continued to surprise me again and again, especially Penryn's mother. I really haven't read many books in which a character is completely mentally unstable and it was extremely interesting to see Ee develop such a character.

- "The world going crazy doesn't mean your mother isn't still crazy too."

I thought Angelfall was a wild ride but World After kicked crazy up a notch. Susan Ee has really impressed me with her second book in the Penryn and The End of Days series. After the first book I really wanted some insight into the Angels and Raffe's Past, I also wanted to know more about the creepy Frankenstein monsters that were at the Aerie, Penryn's crazy mom and Paige poor little Paige. Well Susan Ee found a great way to give us insight into most of these things and just when I thought she couldn't horrify me any more Ms. Ee pushed the bar just one step farther.

Penryn's mom is still crazy, I mean sometimes she seems like maybe she is the only one that is on top of what is truly happening but she is still nuts and I love every second of it.

- "Of course your fine." She keeps walking. "You're the devils bride and these are his creatures." - Penryn's Mom

In Penryn's mom's defense the tableau at the end of Angelfall did make Raffe look like the Devil. But, you still have to be crazy to come up with an idea like that. It is safe to say that the Young family wasn't exactly popular in the new resistance camp with a mom speaking in tongues, resurrected girl and a stitched up child with super strength and razor teeth.

DeeDum were hilarious and up to their shenanigans again at the new resistance camp. They have some great one liners and seems to always be in the know, but that is to be expected of the great spymasters. Where ever they go trouble will abound but they seem to always be able to help Penryn out in some way.

Right, I am excited too. But, I originally ordered book one on Oct 16, 2011. I've been patiently waiting through release dates that have come and gone and now I see the pre-order price is $7.99, which is more than what is listed for the paperback. Why hasn't anyone been complaining about any of... Read More
