The Ashes Trilogy: Ashes : Book 1
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. I only got the gore. I remember it being difficult in book 2 to remember all the characters and plot lines, but somehow I got into it again.
It literally had everything I personally love cree books. Just one example- JUST ONE mind you- an ex-military member walks into a scene of straight up carnage another thing she be dropping down constantly. It sounds like I really didn’t like it — I did, but it was just long and because of the other problems, it seemed even longer. People drop dead, other people become wild and start attacking people and eating them, and nothing electronic will work.
It was indeed mind blowing. She is a very scared little girl and Alex does all she can to make sure Ellie is OK.
The Ashes Trilogy: Ashes : Ilsa J. Bick :
I’m not one to cry over books too often but, boy, I cried like a baby during the last part of the book, The Long Walkwhen Chris and Ellie scattered the ashes of their loved ones over the waterfall. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Tom is my kind of guy. Some of the mysteries from the first book that held my attention j.nick never solved and left me very frustrated.
Most of the people the author discussed, I just didn’t care about them at all or I couldn’t even remember who they were. Because in a severe trauma situation, such as explosions, heads pop off the body “like a champagne cork”, so you pick a body part and count it.
View all 6 comments. The body count kept on piling up, and things looked bleaker and bleaker, and yet more problems arose. If there’s a thing that post-apocalyptic novels have taught me is that I don’t want to be around people when it happens. These bumps caused me to get a little bored during some moments, to be honest, and some areas I felt like it may have been too much of an info-dump or too much unnecessary detail to just add more pages to the already long pages to be exact installment.
In the end I give it two stars instead of one because I was hooked enough to read to the end. Unfortunately, that part began on pagewhen I was already finished with the book.
Believe me, no one is ahes shocked about this than I. I still had high hopes. I would also strongly suggest moving the character and previous book summaries to the front of the book instead of the back.
Monsters (Ashes Trilogy, #3) by Ilsa J. Bick
I can’t say too much about this but to say I didn’t like how much depended on what was going on “in their heads. 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. This whole book was a total rollercoaster ride, and I just loved the storyline.
Jan 29, Sue Moro rated it did not like it Shelves: No answer to Alex. I was excited to see how it all wrapped up. This excessive ping-ponging between perspectives was even more tedious when all of it would sometimes happen within the same chapter.
There’s some neuroscience-y stuff in there that I don’t care to go into, nor do I fully understand, but it affects everything and everyone in this series.
This improvised family will have to use every ounce of courage they have just to find food, shelter, while fighting off the ‘Changed’ and those desperate to stay alive. They weren’t themselves anymore and they suddenly liked the taste of human flesh. In this case, it just make me skim through the pages to see what happened when it was finally over.
All of that time Alex is in Rule I’m just thinking about Tom and Ellie and why she isn’t out their searching for them not to mention their was like no fight scenes. Nevermind the weird military guy who’s doing unexplained testing and trying to control the monsters. In another nearby area outside of Rule, Tom continues grieving over Alex’s presumed death.
Thank you, Ilsa J. We can notify you when this item is back in stock. I liked the plot line and the characters Add to that that this book is pages long, and well, I was having a very difficult time immersing myself in this world once again.
Deciding that enough is enough, Alex has taken her parents ashes, cut school, and driven to Michigan, intending to do some hiking on the Waucamaw, and to scatter her parents ashes on lake Superior. This book started out right where book 2 left off, and was literally life-or-death moment, after life-or-death moment, after life-or-death moment.
