Waiting on Wednesday - World After

2 Oct 2013
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and it allows readers to share the books that they are most looking forwards to reading.

This week the book I have chosen to feature is World After by Susan Ee.

Publication date: November 19th

Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Amazon UK


In this sequel to the bestselling fantasy thriller, Angelfall, 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?

My Thoughts

I read Angelfall nearly two years ago now and it was amazing! It is such an incredible and unique novel. I must have re-read it about 3 times and I hardly ever re-read books. I am very exciting that I don't have much longer to wait until the release of book 2, it has been long enough already :P If you haven't read Angelfall I highly recommend it.

So what do you think? Do you plan to read this book? Feel free to link to your own WoW post in the comments. 


  1. I have an ARC of this from the publicist but I'm waiting for an e-mail back from her because I don't have a kindle (only on my cellphone). :P But I'll read this on my cell if I have to though. :p

  2. I will die if I don't read this the very minute it comes out.:)
    Great choice.
