Jen (jenwesner) | 1222 comments We're all reading it - World After (Penryn & the End of Days, #2) by Susan Ee so we might as well talk about it, right?

Be sure and use spoiler tags - if you don't know how to do that, just ask.

Also, no time constraints here. Just reading and discussing at our leisure.

Yay! This one popped up in my Kindle app yesterday! I did want to reread Angelfall first but I'll be reading this one ASAP!

20%! Despite feeling very sick still, I've been unable to put this down! Although it does seem a bit short considering it took almost two years to arrive lol! (view spoiler)

Actually, I already have one (though I can't remember when nor where I got it--probably bought it on discount, or at a moment when it was free on Kindle, or something; otherwise I'd definitely remember). I just keep getting sidetracked by every other cover in my tablet. ^^;

HA! Hope you enjoyed your fancy shmancy hotel! I like my shorts and t-shirts so I'm always very underdressed whenever Adele finds us a deal somewhere lol.

Ooh awesome! Yeah, these books are great value, I really respect the author/publisher for selling them so cheap so more people get to read them :)

Cool, can't wait!


message 21: by Jen (new)

Jen (jenwesner) | 1222 comments LOL I totally enjoyed the fancy schmancy hotel - and even better that the weather was in the 70's! A welcomed respite from the 50's where I live.

Finished yesterday - wow, that ending. (view spoiler)

I'm going with 4.5 stars.

Penryn: (view spoiler)

Paige: (view spoiler)

Their mom: (view spoiler)

Beliel: (view spoiler)

Uriel: (view spoiler)

Pookie Bear: (view spoiler)

All in all, I liked it a lot. I didn't love it, but that has a lot to do with the gruesome/horrific factor. I think she did a good job of portraying the baseness of the human character. So sad! She took a lot of liberties with the biblical ideas, which I both liked because it's fiction and didn't like because, well, it's fiction. But overall I thought the action was fabulous.

you are totally going to love it. :P


Angela(demonsangel) Fitzgerald (demonsangel) | 74 comments If anyone has Angelfall on kindle you should run over to Audible and get the audio book for $1.99. The audio book is great, so much better than the book.

Starting this one now!

David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 10713 comments Mod
Ha! Great summary Jen! Yeah, pretty decent (and surprising) ending that definitely added as many questions as answers! Praying Ee doesn't make us wait another two years!

I agree with pretty much everything you said so I won't add anything except (view spoiler)

Az (أسماء) | 89 comments I loved Angelfall way more but this was really good. I cried for wings and a sword. I mean I cried for/about objects in stories/books before but well I didn't expect to here.
