Confused about Chris and Simon’s parents. I wish I’d had the time to do that myself. Ellies’ grandpa keels over with blood spurting out of his ears and mouth. I still have to rate it and maybe write a bit of a review. Now, with no hope of rescue-on the brink of starvation in a winter that just won’t quit-she discovers a new and horrifying truth.

The Ashes Trilogy: Ashes : Ilsa J. Bick :

Helloooo, I’m right here. The book is fast pace and ahes It is complete trash. Just get to the end! We don’t get to find out more about the Zap, the Changed, or any of the other strange things that have been happening ashed our characters.

Thank you, Ilsa J. It sounds like I really didn’t like it — I did, but it was just long and because of the other problems, it seemed even longer. The story alternated between Alex, Chris, Tom, Ellie, and Peter, so we were really living several stories, and each had their own problems ashds the chuckie-infested cesspit that was this dystopian America.

The absolute worst part is how many times the book kept saying ‘if this were a movie or a book…’ as if we weren’t reading a book. Then the second book Shadows came out and I was disappointed in it, but I fre Bick the benefit of the doubt because the second book is usually not as great and is just a hurdle we have to get through to get to the final book.


And meet is what they do. The imagery was often times disgusting, which I expected and I could get past it, but the jumping around from viewpoints got really old really fast. Don’t we want action in our books? ashds

The odds are if you were one of those people who didn’t like the second half of Ashes, or you were really angry after reading Shadows, or you like your endings all wrapped up in a neat little bow They, too, are marching on Rule, where a battle for freedom and security is poised to begin.

Changed, Chuckies, People eaters But then the end of the world happened, and Alex took the first step down a treacherous road of betrayal and ter The Changed are on the move. She doesn’t leave you hanging with questions unasked. View all 7 comments. Unfortunately, that part began on pagewhen I was already finished with the book.

Alex is alive, however, having narrowly escaped the flooded mine where Tom had to leave her. There was a lot of action going on, it literally never slowed down even a bit, so despite its monstrous size, it was still a very fast read.

Who cares about Chris? I had forgotten what had taken place in previous books, even though it had not been that long since I had read them. Monsters was ashee all the different crap going on inside j.bick heads, and it left me utterly confused for the longest time, and I think that’s why this novel gave me such a headache. Especially because it was obvious all the main characters were going to survive anyway so the cliffhanger endings to every chapter were totally superfluous and unsuspenseful.


I think if you are invested in the series, you have to go for it. She pulls you into the scene and you are on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens. I cannot believe they aren’t more popular Some I loved and cared about like I knew them. The author isn’t afraid to describe exactly what was happening. But it was still very good. Other books in the series.

The Ashes Trilogy: Ashes : Book 1

Most soldiers count left feet. Working as best she can with the motley crew of Changed teens who were the biggest threat to her in Shadowsshe moves toward Rule at the same time Tom and his kids and Ellie and her friends are on the way there, unaware of each other’s presence.

But I actually really enjoyed the first book and I guess I just wanted to know how the story ended. If you’re queasy, you might find the descriptions too graphic and detailed. Ashes read like a typical post apocalyptic book and then bam the author throws something else into the mix. No answer to what is going on with Chris and why he came back to life.

But it did end good and I was satisfied with how the relationships between all the characters ended. It just doesn’t hold together. It distracts from the three main characters in the original.

Was it a EMP? When Ashes first came out, I was a little slow to pay attention. But guys, the death on page
