Review: World After

World After
World After by Susan Ee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book continues immediately after the last book finished, to the point that it is like someone just split a longer book in two. Most of the characters are in the previous book so we know them already and this frees the author up to spend more time on the story rather than introducing lots of new characters.
I listened to the first book on Audible and then read this book on my Kindle which means that they were very different experiences – you get more time to ‘savour’ an audiobook, and the author often does a range of voices/accents to help distinguish between characters and personalities. I feel it unfair to compare the second book to the first for this reason.
What is fair to say is that the storyline moves just as quickly and you are swept along as Penrhyn searches for her sister and is reunited with the odd character from the first book. There is less of the sexual tension between Raffe and a little more emphasis on Penrhyn, although the character development and background from the first book is lacking in the second.
Think of this book as more of the same – if you liked the first book you will like the second. The only thing I have to complain about it the length of time I will have to wait for book three!
