Review by Lissa
World After begins right where Afterfall ends. You find Penryn still in a paralyzingly state. She is without Raffe but still has his sword.
This is one series that is not boring. Penryn is reunited with Paige. But doesn't even really know what she is. She is unsure of her but loves Paige. She wants to do anything that she can do to help.
But that seems fruitless. She ends up a prisoner with her mother. Help does find her through, Clara. The women she saved in Afterfall. She sees Penryn as a hero, though she's only doing what right. I love that this is set in San Francisco and the Bay Area. There's a lot of places I have been. Honestly, I didn't even think of the Angels being in a tourist location.
You don't see much of Raffe till much later. But it was worth the wait. Out of all the characters, I really love his sword. Though that sounds odd, the sword has a mind of its own. The sword does give Penyrn a glimpse of him. Things she never knew. Her feelings toward them never fade.
The other Angels are part of this twisted reality.
The ending! Wowww Penyrn does kick a lot of ass. Can't wait to see what happens in, End of Days, coming out May 12th!!
