This book has taken me almost three months to read? Why? Darned if I know. Because once I really got into this book, it was over in a day. World After picks up right where Angelfall left off. Penryn and her family are in the back of a resistance vehicle moving towards a safe location. But this is the world after, and there is no safe location.

The story was just as good as the first book. I loved watching Penryn struggle to care for her family while adjusting to her updated situation. She was tough and resourceful in the first place, but somewhere during book one, she's gained a much needed confidence. She may have relied heavily upon Raffe during the first book, but I had no issue believing she could do all the dangerous things she's attempted in this book alone.

The moments with the sword, were probably some of my favorites of the series. I really loved the developing romance between during Angelfall, so I was torn between fangirling their moments and devouring the backstory. I missed Raffe so much during his absence, but I understand why it was necessary.

As the book continued and we got answers, things that were set up in book one and seemingly unimportant, came into play. I really liked the twists and turns this story took. I'm looking forward to book three.

“It is painful to see that people prefer a bad guy who looks like an angel to a good guy who looks like a demon.”
