Goodreads Synopsis...
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?

It wasnt as good as Angelfall, and to be honest I was expecting that. However it was still what I can only describe as amazingly creepy, unputdownable, soul wrenching, so damn awesome I could cry
, and just as freaking enjoyable as the first book! So there's that...

It got darker and even creepier, how that happened I dont know. But I was so glad it did. Penryn and her family are highlighted more in this book. Especially Penryn, her faults and her relationships with her sister and mom. This meant that these three characters specifically were shown in even more depth, and became so real and believable. 

Also Susan Ee continued to provide a complicated story with basically no plot wholes, which for me is unheard of. Some explainations were given for things, but there are still so many questions. Which I cant wait to hear the answers to in the next book. Im sure it will blow me away just as much as this one did.

I cant finish this review without mentioning Pooky Bear. I love Pooky Bear! And you will too! Definitely recommend World After by Susan Ee to everyone!
