  1. so, apparently, THERE IS A WHOLE BACK MATTER SECTION of this book with a refresher list of CHARACTERS and THINGS THAT HAPPENED in the first two books it is not as complete as it could be you are still going to have to sort out the whole jarvis jasper jayden situation yourself, but THIS MIGHT HAVE BEEN USEFUL FOR ME TO KNOW BEFORE i read the whole 600 plus page book had i been reading a regular book, there is a chance i would have flipped to the back of the book and said AHA , but e books are jus [...]

  2. DNF at 38%Life is too short to read bad books and everyone is annoying the fuck out of me.Here s the thing.I really enjoyed Ashes for most part It was a cool post apocalyptic novel about Alex, Ellie and Tom surviving in a fried zombie infested world.Then Ilsa J Bick tried to turn it into a stupid dystopia And with that story arc I really lost my interest Shadows was no better It was almost to worse with many different story arcs from different characters point of views and none of them seeming t [...]

  3. This is going to be less of a review, and of a list of my thoughts on why I just couldn t get into this book I try generally to finish every book I start because I m way too obsessive compulsive not to, but I have to say it was so tempting to put this one aside I did end up finishing it, but not without much zoning out and skimming I remember really liking Ashes, the first book of this trilogy It was, in my opinion, a zombie survival story done well We had a great beginning, an intriguing cause [...]

  4. The odds are if you were one of those people who didn t like the second half of Ashes, or you were really angry after reading Shadows, or you like your endings all wrapped up in a neat little bowyou may be less than thrilled with MONSTERS the final book in The Ashes Trilogy.I am not one of those people I kind of loved it image error What drew me into this Trilogy, and made me want to stick with it, were the characters Some I loved and cared about like I knew them And some were soooo despicable I [...]

  5. This book is Monster sized.I didn t think I was going to finish it anytime soon Not that it drags because it does not The story keeps you moving through it there s just so much information to the characters and what they have gone through Ms Bick does wrap up her trilogy well though She doesn t leave you hanging with questions unasked.Her characters have wrapped me up in their stories I do have to say though starting this book there was a period when I was totally confused I had forgotten what h [...]

  6. I was so excited for the conclusion to the Ashes Trilogy But after spending four days reading Monsters I must confess I m mostly disappointed.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 summary instead of my usual summary.Monsters was just too long It took me four days that s unheard of, for me to read the almost 700 page tome And I just didn t think it needed to be There was so much detail and repetition Going [...]

  7. OH.GOD This book was so absolutely amazing that I can t even find the words to describe it.Through the course of only three books, Ilsa has taken me on a journey I will never forget, and made me fall in love with truly inspiring characters This book was so intense, so detailed and so carefully written that I was left completely breathless.I love how Ilsa has made all the characters who, most of them, we re complete strangers before the EMP blast connected in so many ways For example Chris just h [...]

  8. The Final book in the Ashes trilogy about zombiesThe only word I can think to describe my reaction to this book is disappointment The first book in this series is one of my favorite zombie novels of all time That s no exaggeration Then the second book Shadows came out and I was disappointed in it, but I gave Bick the benefit of the doubt because the second book is usually not as great and is just a hurdle we have to get through to get to the final book This 800 page book lived up to it s name at [...]

  9. A word of advice, sweetheart when you re at the brink when it s a choice between what s safe and what might be better, even if what s best is also scary, take a chance, honey This was a weird series for me I m not even sure why I read this book, because I didn t like the second book at all so I was pretty sure I wouldn t like this one either But I actually really enjoyed the first book and I guess I just wanted to know how the story ended The series started out as a pretty good dystopia in the f [...]

  11. OMG my head is literally spinning with questions Shadows had one of the worst endings I can imagine with all these different plot lines view spoiler did Wolf save Alex Is Chris alive Is Lena changing Is Tom going to fight against Rule Will Ellie appear again What about Peter hide spoiler Argh it s just too much

  12. When Ashes first came out, I was a little slow to pay attention Once I read it, I beat myself across the head because I LOVED it Nobody knew what was happening, other than people within a certain age range kids were turning into Chuckies aggressive little zombies , the older adults were all of a sudden just dead, and the elderly were spared, but they became easy prey for the hungry Chuckies For some reason, a handful of kids didn t turn which included three that met within a national park Alex, [...]

  13. This was without a doubt the BIGGEST disappointment of the year so far for me After having raved about and absolutely loved the first 2 books in this trilogy, I was beyond stoked to finally read the conclusion I never expected it to be such a let down.First of all, I spent the first third of the book utterly confused I remember it being difficult in book 2 to remember all the characters and plot lines, but somehow I got into it again But this one was impossible I even went to the author s websit [...]

  15. Please do not read this if you have not read all three books yet.Ok where to start This is kind of my review for the whole series Well ever since I got one chapter into the first book I was hooked I read ASHES about six times in one year because I needed my Tom, Ellie, and Alex fix while I waited for the second one to come out Alex is the perfect character She is fierce and strong with that personality that draws you in but like the real people in this world she has flaws She isn t super woman, [...]

  16. Monsters and I got off to a bit of a rocky start Having been a year since I read Shadows and a year before that that I d read Ashes, I d forgotten quite a bit Even with Ilsa s handy dandy refreshers So You Read ASHES a Year Ago So You Read SHADOWS a Year Ago , I still felt like there was about this world than I was remembering Re reading my reviews for each book didn t help either, since I try to refrain from spoilers in my reviews I just knew that there were things I d already figured out in t [...]

  17. Mystery, cruelty, and psychotic ambition swirling around the town of Rule finally reach their climax in this third book of the Ashes trilogy, and the finale is anything but quick Monsters is six hundred eighty pages of dense, heavily detailed action and minor plot twists than I can keep straight as the main characters regroup after the underground mine detonation at the conclusion of Shadows to figure out what s next now that most of the Chuckies or Changed are dead Threats to human life are no [...]

  18. Let me start by saying my son and I are huge fans of this series and I mentioned these books at teripolen 2013 01 16 would It s been about a year since the second book, Shadows, came out, so I was glad Monsters included a cast of characters there are many secondary ones and summary of who s where and doing what at the end of the second book Unfortunately, that part began on page 673, when I was already finished with the book Had it been in the first few pages of the book, my reading experience w [...]

  19. Technically 4.5 stars, but since I can t rate half stars at GR, I rounded up here D You can see this full review at my blog, The BookaholicNow I have come to the conclusion of the Ashes trilogy I am saddened by this I kept my pacing timed so that I could savor the finale Obviously, you re gathering from these sentences that this trilogy is a favorite I don t think I ve loved a set of books so deeply in years And maybe that s saying something It stacks against my love of Vampire Academy, Harry Po [...]

  20. Almost 700 pages And I m done Well not quite I still have to rate it and maybe write a bit of a review Whatever I ll sort out my feelings for this one later For now, I ll just rejoice for a while on the fact that I finally finished this freaking series with this mammoth of a book appropriately named Monsters I m done I m free Praised be the gods of YA.

  21. The Good Sadly, nothing.The Bad I ve never read a trilogy that started out so flipping amazing and ended so unbearable that I almost couldn t even bother finishing it I loved Ashes Raved about Ashes Shadows wasn t good, but I soldiered on Sometimes middle books just don t work for me I still had high hopes Monsters was nothing short of atrocious I just feel so let down by this trilogy Everything that was wrong with Shadows was just amplified in Monsters The pace was meandering The book was super [...]

  22. Volumen final de la trilog a Son 800 p ginas pero me ha mantenido pegada a sus p ginas toda la lectura Me han encantado los personajes, las escenas m s duras y como se ha ido resolviendo todo No le doy las cinco estrellas porque me han quedado bastantes dudas que me hubiera gustado saber y que el final fuera algo m s cerrado.

  23. Initial reaction HOLY HOLY HOLY HOLY HOLYGOD GOD GOD GOD GOD GOD GOD Words are failing me right now This series started with a bang and ended with a fricken fireworks display There is so much action and adventure and thrills and gore and horror and mystery and romance and this series keeps you on the edge of your seat and I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN Synopsis The Changed are on the move The Spared are out of time The End now.When her parents died, Alex thought things couldn t get much worse until the [...]

  24. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Egmont USA and Edelweiss This is book 3 in the Ashes series, and picks up where book 2 Shadows left off Warning some unavoidable spoilers for books 1 and 2 Ashes , and Shadows Alex is stuck in the mine which has just exploded time is running out if she wants to survive.Tom blames himself for Alex s death, and vows to kill Chris if he ever meets him.Chris is pinned beneath an iron spiked tiger trap and deat [...]

  25. I really really really wanted to love this book Ashes was amazing, and Shadows was pretty good I fell in love with Alex, Tom, Chris, and Ellie and I wanted them to all have a happy ending But Monsters was needlessly long I tried really hard to be interested, but I was bored a lot of the times I don t think I ve ever skipped so much of a book before The biggest drawback of this book is the action Action Why You ask Don t we want action in our books But I don t need to know EVERY SINGLE DETAIL I d [...]

  26. The conclusion to the Ashes trilogy where teenagers inexplicably turn into people eating monsters and thank goodness it s finally over I loved the opening of this trilogy, Ashes It was intense, full of post apocalyptic action and had a trio of great main characters you cared about Then the characters got sidetracked in this weird town and it didn t end The second book, Shadows, just delved into weird stuff and introduced these odd factions The series still had great moments, so I kept reading.M [...]

  27. Although I very much enjoyed Ashes, the first book in the series, I felt the series went downhill from there The second book introduced way too many characters to keep track of and I honestly didn t really care about any of them The three main characters get separated mid way through Ashes book one , and do not re unite until the very end of Monsters This frustrated me so much Monsters is a huge book, well over 600 pages The author does include a list of characters and where they are and what ha [...]

  28. This book was quite gripping and very hard to put downbut boy was it dark The action was so unrelenting the characters went from one disaster or fight scene to another There was no moments of peace for the characters to stop and just enjoy being together even for a moment Perhaps a true reflection of what it s like to be in a state of war but from the reader point of view I needed a break from all the fighting for a bit humanity and tenderness between the characters Far too many characters were [...]

  29. OMG OMG OMG I just finished shadows and I am literally on the tip of crying the book left me with questions than answers.I really really, really hope that Tom doesn t change, and I also do NOT want anything to happen to Chris , I mean, I know that Alex will have to end up with either Chris or Tom, but I still don t want any of them to die, like honestly might heart will break into a million pieces its super hard trying to Not like both Chris and Tom.I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE BOOK MONSTERS TO COME O [...]
