World After

World After - Susan Ee Review of World After

Rating: 4 stars

Angel Fall the first book was outstanding for its originality. World after was outstanding for its horror.

Some of the horror was towards the end of book one, but in World After it was on full throttle. Angels are experimenting on humans, turning them into monsters the fact that they don’t just do this man (not that it’s okay) No they take women and even children. This is tough to read especially with Paige being only seven. She’s stitched like a doll, her teeth sharp – made of steel and she’s a cannibal, yet she is only a little girl on the inside who wants to be loved, but Penryn struggles with this. I don’t blame her Paige sounds freaky. But when Paige runs away Penryn realises it’s still her little sister and tries to track her down.

Raffe thinks Penryn is dead so she’s on her own with her “crazy” mother and Clara a women who was used to feed scorpion angels in book one. But Penryn saved her but Clara is not right she’s a shadow of her former self and has aged rapidly from her horrible experience in the lab.

While searching for her sister, Penryn her mum and Clara end up in Alcatraz and we see how the angel scorpions are been made, the most disturbing part was the amount of humans helping. While there Penryn watches a tape of her sister from the day she was taken and I think it takes another chunk from her heart, it broke mine. As Penryn continues her search her responsibility of people to save keeps growing and her family are pushed further away from her. It’s not until Raffe shows up that Penryn can take a breather but not for long as both of them go after Biebel. Raffe for his wings and Penryn for her sister once again.

An amazing yet horrifying journey that’s not over and I can’t wait for the next book.
