“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine; we bloggers use it to spotlight book which are torturing us with their release dates…books which we would do questionable things to get our hands on…
This is my first ever “Waiting on Wednesday” post! Get ready for an oppressive wave of excessive fangirling.
But first off, let’s get this off of my hands.
This, my friends, is the sequel to Susan Ee’s amazing dystopian novel Angelfall. If you haven’t read it yet, read it. Right now. Click on this link. I’ve literally hyperlinked half of this paragraph. Just do it.
Here are the facts.

Release Date: November 19, 2013
Synopsis: 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?

Does it not make your spine tingle with nerve-wrenching excitement?!?!
I thought so.
The first book was beautiful– or at least, that’s how I’d describe it in one word.
We were transported into an angel-driven apocalypse, plunged into Penryn’s journey as she travels with the angel Raffe to find her abducted sister.
I’m desperately looking forward to World After. Hopefully, it’ll retain the emotional and complex relationship between Penryn and Raffe…and also explore Paige’s “transformation” from the first book (can’t say anymore without giving away spoilers!).
Keep your eyes peeled for a review soon after it comes out (Which is so freaking far away. WHY.).
I will probably buy it the minute it is released because I’m cool like that.
Are you excited for World After? Are you bored and about to leave this blog? Are you currently eating a Belgian waffle? Let me know in the comments!
