Ashes by Ilsa Bick – review
Had some survival skills going on and of course the kids in the ashees that have been “changed”. If that wasn’t ashex enough, Alex is also living with a terminal brain tumor, which has screwed with her memory and taken away her sense of smell. She got to the town Rule and I got seriously lost because all of these new characters were thrown in the mix and I got so confused keeping everybody straight.
Allerdings ist Band 2 kaum zu bekommen. Every time I put the book down, I couldn’t wait to get back to it!

NOT for you Ivonne.
Quite a few people gave it low marks for various things being “unbelievable”. Apparently her mother was a doctor and they used to spend their time together stitching up chickens. This review xshes been hidden because it contains spoilers. It’s definitely interesting and one of the reasons I kept reading was Alex.
It is a good book I could sense it since the moment she met the second love interest. For story-telling purposes—plot, pacing and all that—I decided against a detailed recap.
Want to tell the world about a book you’ve read? When the older man dies in the moment of inexplicable chaos, Alex is left with an eight-year old girl, no idea what has happened, and a whole world of horror to face. It struck me as odd that someone like Alex–used to meeting a wide variety of people ashds medical facilities, used to hiking remotely–was so impolite and guarded about general details.
Overall, this was an entertaining read with a fantastic narrator that kept me going through the more tedious portions of my life. Imagine two fish swimming around in a big fish tank. While out in the wilderness, an event occurs that prevents the use of her electronic devices; she later discovers that an EMP had gone off and had not only shut down all electronic devices but killed billions.
It’s hardly even a blip on biick radar.
Ashes Trilogy by Ilsa J. Bick
All that detail played well when it mattered. It is amazing how these characters always have the perfect past to survive in these dystopian novels. I have to say, that I am excited for book two, because I need to know what will happen next…especially with the way the book ends. Also the strength I loved in Alex through the first half seemed conspicuously absent in the second half. A story set in the backdrop of a desolate land forsaken with an ever growing amount of people, particularly young, transforming into Zombies.
With an actively growing brain tumor, aka ‘monster,’ she’s been under the watchful eye of her aunt, and has had to sneak away to accomplish her bifk. It felt too rushed, too contrived, out of keeping with the tone of the rest of the book and Alex herself, and Bg had to slam the book closed and walk away for a little while.
So You Read ASHES a Year Ago
In fact, up until this point…. One of the strengths of the book was world building.
Dead birds fall from the sky. I’d call it a three-star read–good enough to survive a little longer, but it could go either way next season. Ashes really gripped me from beginning to end.
