Super good. These books always fly by. This is fast paced and has a ton going on so you never have time to get bored. There is a lot of character development for Paige and Penryn. We don't get to see Raffe until about half way through....but then he is as amazing as you'd expect.

I liked where the plot is headed. But can we please get Raffe his wings back??? Please? I really need him to be whole so he can destroy Uriel. Sooner rather than later. Can't wait for the next book!

World After is such an intense sequel to Angelfall. The first time I read World After I was horrified as to what happened in this book. The second time reading it though, that one section was dialled down a bit; so it was still scary, but not as much.
Penryn remains to be a strong character. When all she wants to do is react like a normal teenage girl, she is reminded that she can't. Her family is depending on her, and through thick and thin, Penryn tries her hardest. And I have to really admire that in a character.
tl;dr -- World After is really intense, and I still love Penryn (and Raffe).

I didn't think this could top Angelfall but it has. World After is even more intense and scary then it's predecessor. It gets more complicated and intricate but Susan Ee writes it so well, you want to keep going. There were definitely a lot of OMG moments. Love, love, love this series and I can't wait to read the third book!

I missed the survival aspects of the first book, which is why I didn't like this one as much, but I still enjoyed reading it and it really developed the story. I can't wait to read the final book and see how this story concludes! (though I fear it may be a let down...)

"I've never had a panic attack and I'm hoping I'm not about to now. But I'm hyper-aware of what a flimsy, inconsequential creature I am compared to these demigods. Did I think for a second that I could have my own agenda among them? That I could beat any of them? I'm a little nobody, a nothing. By all the laws of nature, I should be crawling under a table and crying for mommy.

Only relying on mommy is what other people do."

This is one of my top favorite series. Up there with hunger games, a court thorns and roses and mist and fury, and twilight. A must read for fans of mythical fiction.
