In A Nut Shell
This sequel was AMAZING I couldn't put it down. I have nothing bad to say about this book. If you are worried about this book not being as good as the first one do not worry! I was blown away by all the dark twists and turns this book took. Penryn Steps up her game and some how becomes even more fierce in this book. We get to learn more about Raffe's history as well as other characters> No rock is left uncovered in this sequel and it is so refreshing. The questions we had at the end of Angelfall were answered, and Ee gave us more questions to ponder over while waiting for the next and final book. I am beyond shocked with how creative Susan Ee is and what a page turner this book was for me.

 
 
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?
 
I cannot get over how blown away I am by this series. Like I have said before this book is so dark and I don't normally enjoy these types of books but Susan Ee does not give you a choice she MAKES you become intrigued by this world. There were so many questions answered in this book and I felt like every unanswered question was answered which I was Beyond happy about. I hate when there are unanswered questions in the first book, and the answers are not answered until the LAST book. Which sometimes makes the last book too overwhelming. Ee did a fantastic job with answering our questions and then giving us more to ponder about. Am I the only one that appreciates when authors do that? I feel like we get a better understanding of Raffe and his way of life. We also get to see more of the other angles and understand their thoughts and belief system. This book was just so fantastic I cannot help but gush over it!!!!! I am beyond ready for the next and final book!
 
So tell me, did ya'll love think this book was as good as the first? How about how she answered most of the questions we all had at the end of Angelfall in World After instead of waiting till the last book to answer all the questions at once? Share all your thoughts in the comments below =)
Happy reading ya'll
