Most of the time I read a book and then once I’m finished I immediately begin to loose pieces of it. I guess you could say I’m the love ‘em and leave ‘em type of person when it comes to books. That sounds bad but it’s true, I enjoy books while I’m reading them but most of the time I easily move on after.
Once in a while a book or series will worm its way in further and that’s what happened with both Angelfall and World After. I want this series to be a neverending story because I simply cannot get enough of Penryn, Raffe, DeeDum, Paige, and even Penryn’s mom. Much to his dismay I’m sure, I have even started calling my dog Pookey Bear which is a name that comes up in World After.
World After does NOT, I repeat does NOT suffer the dreaded second book syndrome. I can see myself pimping this series for a very long time.
