Add to Goodreads
Title: World After
Author: Susan Ee
Series: Penryn & the End of Days, book #2
Publisher: Skyscape/Amazon Children's Publishing
Publication Date: November 19, 2013

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?


Ermahgerd...it feels like I've been waiting for this sequel for ages!  And I didn't even read Angelfall when it first came out.  But I have read it at least five times now -- it's seriously that good -- and now I'm ready to see what becomes of Penryn, Raffe, and poor little Paige.  Especially after that excerpt that was just posted with the cover reveal!  Speaking of which, you like?  I really, really do.  =)

Now that you know what I'm dying to read, what are you waiting on this week?  Feel free to share it in the comments or leave a link so I can stop by!

  7. Once again we picked the same book! Great minds think alike :-) I am DESPERATE for this book. I NEED it like now. I fell completely in love with Angelfall and have been dying for World After since I read the final word of Angelfall. Sigh...is it November yet?

  15. I about died when I saw this cover. It is PERFECT for how Angelfall ended! I was worried we'd get a cover redesign but I'm glad they are sticking with it.
