Dystopian YA Review: World After by Susan Ee

World After by Susan Ee (Penryn & The End of Days #2)


Synopsis from Goodreads
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?

 This was definitely one of my top reads of last year, and I'm deeply sorry I haven't had time to review it until now. Guys, this is pure adrenaline rush! So much non-stop action, tension and drama, I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole book.

Penryn does not get a break, poor girl... First she has to try and survive in a camp of refugees, providing for a crazy mother and a monster sister, then Paige is taken again and her mom disappears. The trail leads to San Fransisco, and Penryn finds out that the angels continue their experiments on humans in depths of Alcatraz, which means she has to get on the boat somehow and try to get her sister back. Again.

World After is the book where plot thickens. Fair amount of time is spent on angelic intrigues, and Penryn manages to grab a front seat at those playing a role of an amusing human pet. Reading about it was terrifying, and what happened after was absolutely EPIC. I kid you not.

I don't usually exaggerate my level of excitement, so believe me when I say that this was a top notch, fantastic read, and I can not wait to see what happens in The End of Days which is out in May. Highly recommended, read it.

My review of Angelfall.

* * *
Мир После оказалась одной из лучших книг, прочитанных мною в прошлом году,  и мне только жаль, что я не прорецензировала эту книгу раньше. Ребятушки, это же чистейший адреналиновый драйв, бесконечный экшн, нескончаемое напряжение и драматизм, и я не смогла перевести дыхание пока не закончила эту книгу.

Пенрин никак не может передохнуть, бедная девочка... Сразу после Нашествия Ангелов, она попадает в лагерь беженцев и вынуждена делать всё возможное, чтобы присмотреть за своей сумасшедшей матерью и чудовищной сестричкой. Затем Пэйдж опять исчезает вместе с её матерью, и их след приводит Пенрин в Сан-Франциско.

Она узнаёт, что ангелы продолжают свои чудовищные эксперименты, и ей нужно попасть на Алькатраз, чтобы найти Пэйдж любым способом.

Мир После раскрывает суть ангельских интриг, и Пенрин узнаёт о планах ангелов чуть ли не в первом лице, когда с трясущимися поджилками играет роль пета или декорации знакомого нам архангела. Зато последующий за этой сценой бой просто ЭПИЧЕН, дамы и господа! Мне хотелось визжать от восторга.

В общем, быстрая, напряжённая, великолепная книга, и я жду не дождусь продолжения, Конец Дней, которое выйдет в середине мая. Рекомендую, читать необходимо.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
