Book Blog - ASHES by Ilsa J. Bick

Welcome to October! As usual we are spreading the good news about great books during the first week of the month and, since it's OCTOBER, we're sharing about scary books we love. When we first talked about this topic, I immediately put in dibbs for Ilsa J. Bick's ASHES. A terrifying thrill ride, ASHES is raking in the fantastic reviews. Below is the description from Amazon:

It could happen tomorrow . . .

An electromagnetic pulse flashes across the sky, destroying every electronic device, wiping out every computerized system, and killing billions.
Alex hiked into the woods to say good-bye to her dead parents and her personal demons. Now desperate to find out what happened after the pulse crushes her to the ground, Alex meets up with Tom—a young soldier—and Ellie, a girl whose grandfather was killed by the EMP.

For this improvised family and the others who are spared, it’s now a question of who can be trusted and who is no longer human.

Author Ilsa J. Bick crafts a terrifying and thrilling novel about a world that could be ours at any moment, where those left standing must learn what it means not just to survive, but to live amidst the devastation.

"Splendidly paced apocalyptic zombie horror ends with a thrilling, terrifying cliffhanger and a number of unresolved mysteries."--Kirkus Reviews

“Bick delivers an action-packed tale of an apocalypse unfolding, launching a trilogy with flair.”
--Publisher's Weekly

"Bick has written a thriller of a post-apocalyptic novel."

If you love a good scary read, this is the perfect Halloween companion. The only bad thing I can say about this wild ride through zombieland is that it ends too soon on a cliffhanger that will have you dying for book two of this trilogy!


I've been looking forward to this, but was so sad to hear about the cliffhanger ending. Maybe I'll do what my brother does and wait for the series to be finished before reading any of them.
