My *****5 Star***** Review
World After picks up right where Angelfall left off. You can check out my review of Angelfall HERE.
One thing I didn’t mention in my previous review is the development of minor characters. If you’ve read the first book, then you’re familiar with Dee and Dum. Let’s just say they continue to be entertaining.
I was less than 20% in before I came across my first violent, heart-pounding moment. Susan doesn’t back off in the action department.
Although this book is from Penryn’s point of view, you get a little treat from Pooky Bear in this story. Pooky decides to share Raffe’s point of view from a few incidents that happened during Angelfall. LOVED this! I was begging my kindle screen for more! Oh, and of course, I love the whole Pooky Bear thing in general. Penryn plays dress-up with Pooky, and it’s quite entertaining!
You can still expect to laugh through some scenes, and then be completely disheartened in the next. Oh, and of course I was thoroughly GIDDY at one point. I’m talking VICTORY DANCE!! I absolutely LOVE this story! I am soooo dreading the ending, though! I need a loophole for Penryn & Raffe. I NEED A LOOPHOLE!!! Okay. Rant over….maybe.
5 AMAZEBALLS STARS!!!!! I cannot wait for End of Days!!! Susan, I NEED an HEA here!!!!
