What intrigued me: The first book, ANGELFALL, felt like an introduction. I was hoping to find the good stuff here.
Where is Raffe?
WORLD AFTER and ANGELFALL might as well just be one book. The narration continues with Penryn's paralysis and I think this is where it makes its first mistake. The action is over, the exciting thing just happened - so we're back to filler and filler and filler. It seems like Ee is trying to make up for the lack of world building in the first novel, hastily adding scavengers, hurt people, and near-starvation.
What made ANGELFALL interesting and pretty much saved the sadly very generic post-apocalyptic novel from being forgettable, was to me Raffe's and Penryn's banter. This is what hooked me. To see Raffe and Penryn save each other and still insist they can't stand the sight of one another. I wanted to see more of the angels, to have them spill all their secrets.
In a way, this is what WORLD AFTER tries to do. Despite basically having written herself in a corner with having them separated, we get flashbacks to past memories from Raffe's sword Pooky Bear (sadly this name is not a typo). Not only are these flashbacks extremely awkward to read, since the memories are all from Raffe's perspective when the rest of the novel is from Penryn's, they're also poorly done. The memories hardly connect to the actual present tense plot and it feels again like Ee is trying to cram in as much info as she can.Read more ›
This is an awesome book that I zipped through very quickly. It's well written but also very entertaining. I hope not to wait another year got the next book.
World After is the really good sequel to Angelfall as it is addictive and has everything I liked but darker and grittier. I also liked how we got know more about the Angels and their plans.
Penryn has grown as a person since the beginning of the series, as she is still a reluctant hero even though she is going through so much, plus it makes Penryn seem more human the way she struggled to cope both with Paige and what happened to her, but she still has a sense of humour such as "Pooky Bear". However, I did miss Raffe, as he is not in this book as much as I would have liked but the bits with him in were brilliant. I also liked the secondary characters such as Dee-Dum and Penryn's mother, but my favourite has to be Paige as I felt so sorry for her and I just want to give her a hug.
I hope we don't have to wait as long for the next book as I really want to know what happens next with Penryn and the rest. I would recommend World After to fans of the first book Angelfall.
I always want the second book to carry on the story and not labour over rehashing the scenes from the first book and this book delivered...except it did something weird and gave us Raffe's POV! Yes, it's true. We also get an insight into her sister's trauma. It was a little jarring at first but you quickly get used to it.
Raffe was missing for the first half - or at least, he wasn't physically present in her life. We had several views of him from a distance to keep us salivating, and boy, did I salivate. When he finally appeared it was almost magical...if a little bloody.
Dee-Dum were their normal naughty selves - if you can't have a little fun when the world is ending, when can you?
Mother - I have a theory that she is perfectly sane and everyone else is ignorant...then I smack my forehead and give myself a talking to.
Beliel - Yes!!! Go Prue! (read it if you want to know more)
I shall, of course, read it again next week!
Oh, and Ms Ee, please arrange for the next book to be out on a weekend so I don't chew through my desk waiting to get home to my tablet!
