Pechschwarzer Mond, Teil 4 by Ilsa J. I remember reading it and screaming WHAT! It puts them to shame in terms of worldbuilding and character development.

Gotta know — will there be another one?

Yeah she’s young and scared but Alex is a better person than I probably would be if our roles were switched. The author gets you so attached to them in the first half of ASHES then rips them apart and it makes you want to ilxa and then keep on reading, desperately waiting for them to come back together.

I am very optimistic for the next book, hoping Bick can get the story back on track, and gick hoping she returns to some of the characters and plot threads she ditched halfway through.

I don’t expect too much in the way of big world explanations from an intimate and limited POV story. Call it the ‘Carol’ character of The Walking Dead. I went into this book expecting light entertainment but ended up liking everything about it more than I expected!

There were things I could pick apart. Alex, Tom, and Ellie finally together. The nasty adults take her, too.

Ashes Trilogy by Ilsa J. Bick

They go along their merry way after some grim foreshadowing adhes how nothing was ever okay after that. The series still had great moments, so I kept reading. Zombies are primitive at best.

Teilnehmer 18 45 Apr 17, Alex es muy plana, Tom y Ellie tienen poca profundidad. And some were soooo 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 Jul 20, carol. NOT for you Ivonne. She travels slowly so Ellie can catch up, but Ellie almost falls off the fucking mountain trying to catch up, costing them their limited ilsq.


Which led me to one of my first serious logic confusion–why would they leave when they’ve acknowledged the world is likely in disarray? I know, all you Ashes fangirls and fanboys just went “Yes huh! She is stopped, however, by none other than Jess, who Alex now realizes is an Awakened with a super-sense of her own hearing.

Although Alex tries to help Chris, Jess forces her out at gunpoint. Ellie is the type of character you want to slap. A perfect compliment, filling in the gaps in Alex’s survival knowledge. I wish I’d had the time to do ilea myself. It drove me insane. While there, Alex battles three brain-zapped teenagers and very nearly ends up as an appetizer. I read the book a while ago and I want to read the second one but I don’t remember exactly how this one ended, could anyone help me?

It’s really too bad, because I enjoyed the characters and story so much in the first book. For instance, one chapter midway through view spoiler [has Ellie, Tom and Alex confronting a group of armed adults; hide spoiler ] the next leaps forward three days and is missing a character, leading me to re-read to see if I had missed what happened. I guess I’d rank Monsters barely ahead of Shadows because of a few touching goodbye scenes at the end, and Jasper the ten-year-old pyrotechnic is an interesting new character.

No, if you really look at the heart of every post-apocalyptic tale, they’re all about the human condition, what we’re willing to do to survive and just how much we can withstand before we reach our breaking point. I’m not sure what I cried over more; the death of some beloved characters, or the fact that the book and this stunning series was coming to a close. Something about my site forwarding my mail…but no matter.


Ashes (Ashes Trilogy, #1) by Ilsa J. Bick

I understand putting feeling into it but it was a bit to much and I almost had to stop listening. We get just a page or two and then are switched back and forth.

I am not one of those people Don’t expect a romance novel, please. As you read you realize that all of those characters are heading toward the same place and your just anticipating that moment when they meet. She headed into the wilderness as a good-bye, to leave everything behind. There are structural similarities to the Hunger Games and Dashner’s The Maze Runner that give ilsw book a read-alike feel and should appeal to fans of both of those series. Carrie This answer contains spoilers… view spoiler [ I just finished reading the book.

Georgy-porgy might win that battle, but ONLY because of the sheer ridiculousness of his page count. But then the second half came… Second half: Nov 06, Emily Obsessed Reader rated it it was amazing. I liked the strong but fragile Alex, and I was thoroughly engrossed by the incredible suspense and visceral, shudder-inducing scenes that will be forever seared into my memory. A small issue, wshes something I thought to mention nonetheless.

So You Read ASHES a Year Ago

The 2nd half of the book just was awful. The second half of the book was completely different. Our girl Alex happens to have a Mom sorry she is dead now that was a doctor and a dad that was a cop, also dead.
