In fact, I found this quote ironic: I threw the fecking book across the room, and I almost didn’t pick it up again. The story was good, and I enjoyed revisiting the characters the ones I ashex remember. It was like whiplash and as a literary rree, fell short. Desperate to find out what happened and to avoid the zombies that are on the hunt, Alex meets up with Tom – an Army veteran who escaped one war only to find something worse at home – and Ellie, a young girl whose grandfather was killed by the electromagnetic pulse.

I just feel so let down by this trilogy. She happens to think her awesome readers current company included are purdy smart cookies. I try generally to finish every book I start because I’m way too obsessive-compulsive not to, but I have to say it was so tempting to put this one aside.

I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis.

Who cares about Chris? Bick 1 5 Oct 18, The writing was so k.bick paced and full of action it really kept me enrapt with the story. The first book, and to some extent the second, focused more on Alex and her situation, how far she’d go to survive and protect her loved ones, the decisions she made, and discovering her limits.


This could have been one of my all time favorite trilogies, but the last book was just a huge fail in my eyes.

All those connections led her out of those woods, from a very black place, and pulled her from the brink of a leap where there was nothing and no one waiting but death. And the other stories were dominating j.bikc Alex and Tom’s stories and I couldn’t care any less about Peter or Chris. Cliffhangers are a good ploy for a few places, but when they’re everywhere, they lose their effectiveness. Ashes Trilogy 3 books. Bick does wrap up her trilogy well though.

The Ashes Trilogy: Ashes : Book 1

K, mini rant over. Bick’s vision of the apocalypse, and even more important, the idea that it’s not just the zombies you should fear. Whereas the first book had a strong focus on 3 characters, and the second book introduced some more – this installment just completely lost the narrative with way too many voices. Without all of the other story lines I would have been so lost. Monsters was just too long. Then there are those who simply want to survive, to make some semblance of a new life for themselves now that the world has gone to pieces.

She isn’t super Please freee not read this if you have not read all three books yet. Lot of action to get the suspense and excitement built, but when it came to it at the end, it was over so fast. Sometimes middle books ffee don’t work for me. Shadows had one of the worst endings I can imagine with all these different plot lines. If you’re queasy, you might find the descriptions too graphic and detailed.


In this Post Apocalyptic time Alex, Ellie and Tom have to deal with Zapped kids, raiders, savage dogs and trying to survive. It felt as though the story was sacrificed for the sake of descriptive writing. This book was so absolutely amazing that I can’t even find the words to describe it. Ilsa currently lives with her family and other furry creatures in rural Wisconsin One thing she loves about the neighbours is that they’re very quiet and come around for sugar only once h.bick a blue moon.

The action scenes felt thrown in perfunctorily whenever we needed a break from the soap opera drama. She doesn’t mince words. Ellie is in danger.

Like so many other teen trilogies, this one should have ended with the first free. This series started with a bang and ended with a fricken fireworks display.
