Ashes by Ilsa Bick – review
Ultimately, the book sucked me in but left me somewhat unsatisfied. While there, Alex battles three brain-zapped teenagers and very nearly ends up as an appetizer.
The prologue is well-written and compelling, and I was drawn to the bleak, lonely mood and stark setting right from the very beginning. Nov 06, Emily Obsessed Reader rated it it was amazing. Here are some of my problems with the book: Mina also has the patience of a saint and packs a mean bite. Don’t listen to them, because trust me, this is not any foreseeable future.
I wondered if there was deeper anger issues that would be clarified later, but they never were. And I can’t say anymore in fear of spoiling this fantastic book: To keep this review spoiler-free, I won’t say why but I will say when this girl needs to keep pushing forward, there isn’t much that’ll be able to stand in her way.

She is 15 and an orphan with a brain tumor. At first Ellie does not want to come and Alex feigns leaving her.
Our protagonist is Unfortunately, while Ashes was an interesting book–it did manage the triptych of the apocalypse wilderness survival, cross-country travel-survival, and dealing-with-deviants survival –it was troubled by plotting, narrative jumps and character consistency. This book had everything: It felt like I was reading to entirely different stories.
Ashes Trilogy by Ilsa J. Bick
She has written for several long-running science fiction series, most notably Star TrekBattletechand Mechwarrior: I felt like I was reading a awhes your own adventure book and I’d chosen wrong! Ases, if you read this, let me just say this one thing to you: It all starts with a cataclysmic electromagnetic impulse. Of course, she got attacked by some creatures just outside the store where she left him and didn’t think to move him after I guesss I just…know my people? Ruhelose Seelen, Teil 2.
And this isn’t even Bick’s fault because not once do I think they actually call them zombies. It’s definitely interesting and gick of the reasons I kept reading was Alex. Ansonsten war es echt total top.
Events Leading Up to the End: Hi lisa sorry for the late Answer. Desperate to find out what happened and to avoid the Changed, Alex meets up with Tom–a young army veteran–and Ellie, a young girl whose grandfather was killed by the electromagnetic pulse.
Thanks for being so cool. One thing you can say ilea Ashes is that the plot moves. It was so, so much better than I expected! The ending of this book did not have me feeling the need to continue, the last half of the book just ruined the good parts, very disappointed! This cliffhanger ends one chapter and when the next one begins, the story takes up three days later.
The rest is pure evasion and fighting to live through the horrifying circumstances.
Ashes Trilogy by Ilsa J. Bick
Does Sarah, Tori, Lena, or Jess have last names? While there is a chapter or two bjck halfway through that essentially act as a hinge between the two sections of the book, the transition is jarring enough to make Ashes feel like it is fragmented into two different novels. While both romances are a bit predictable, the leading men are likeable enough that many readers will root for them both.
It was the first hint of oddness to come. I do have ideas for a sequel, though. I enjoyed the story it had enough of a dosage of ashed Zombies, Love and fear. I kept wanting to go back to the place where Alex and Tom decided to leave the ranger station and choose another path for the story to follow.
The beginning of this book sucked me in immediately with a very different sort of beginning compared to the average YA novel.
