The story alternated between Alex, Chris, Tom, Ellie, and Peter, so we were really living several stories, and each had their own problems in the chuckie-infested cesspit that was this dystopian America. I really enjoyed Ashes – for most part. And there’s so many different groups of characters. But then the end of the world happened, and Alex took the first step down a treacherous road of betrayal and terror and death.

Alex sees birds falling from the sky and the deer acting strange. Chris jb.ick rescued Peter and found his long lost twin. And if they didn’t have that to fight for, they all would’ve give up. I wanna call it an abnormal brain.

There were things I could pick apart. So, if a story told from multiple perspectives that shift in the middle of chapters isn’t your thing, this may not be the series for you.

The quasi-society that we’re introduced to closer to the end poses some important questions about how far people are willing to go to ensure survival in a world that’s gone to bust. First of all, I spent the first third of the book utterly confused. The plot is so all over the place, and there are so many characters and different story lines that I’m going to direct you to the Goodreads summary instead of my usual summary. When the disaster strikes, she is on a hiking trip with a mission, and despite the fact that she’s well-prepared, she loses all her equipment and has to survive with what little she has left.


The Ashes Trilogy: Ashes : Book 1

And I can’t believe his story still isn’t finished. 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.

The action scenes felt thrown in perfunctorily whenever we needed a break from the soap opera drama. There’s nothing ila that I can grab onto and if someone adkes me straight out j.bicj did the zombies come to be, I couldn’t give a straight answer. Monsters finally came out and I mainly picked it up to see how things ended. For those spared, it’s a question of who can be trusted and who has changed Sadly we do to. Bick delivers a riveting, blockbuster finish, returning readers to a brutal, post-apocalyptic world where no one is safe and hope is in short supply.

This was very vague, but I’m trying to avoid spoilers here. There was nothing memorable about them that distinguished the different voices. I think the departure had already started happening at the end of Ashes, but it only got worse in the second. And then some other things felt open-ended, leaving me to thoughts.

Monsters (Ashes Trilogy, #3) by Ilsa J. Bick

Tom is Army and tells Alex he reckons it was an electromagnetic pulse or something like that and isn’t just happening here. The story keeps you moving through it-there’s just so much information to the characters and what they have gone through.


Sep 01, Teri j.bickk it it was ok.

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

Just think about it: If you ask me, j.nick got a better deal. We get just a page or two and then are switched back and forth.

So let’s just say that I’m a child psychiatrist yeah, you read that right as well as a film scholar, surgeon wannabe meaning I did an internship in surgery an Among other things, I was an English major in college and so I know that I’m supposed to write things like, “Ilsa J.

Though I should tell you, the reason for how this all went down was never given to us. The three main characters get separated mid-way through Ashes book oneand do not re-unite until the very end of Monsters.

Unfortunately, that part began on pagewhen I was already finished with the book. I expected to read more about Alex and Tom and their subtle but should have been powerful relationship that I was promised since the first book.

Believe me, no one is more shocked about this than I. Though I had no love for these new characters, I pushed through, watching the struggles all three had to endure, constantly following every little clue to put their poor, damaged family back together again.
