Review: Ashes (Ashes Trilogy #1) by Ilsa J. Bick

This book is absolutely fantastic, it has survival in the wilderness after a zombie attack against the planet. This trilogy has a zombie dystopian theme and I can NOT wait to get my hands on the sequel! It is filled with action with a loving, brave heroine, a grumpy but cute kid, a loyal dog [YES!] and a love-interest, though thankfully the romance is not a huge aspect of the book and won't pull any readers from the actual plot.

I would definitely recommend this for book for anyone interested in dystopian novels, such as the Hunger Games. Ashes is well rounded and fast paced with a bit of romance included. Ashes is a story of survival and is able to bring characters with completely different backgrounds together and make it fit: a heroic 16 year old girl who has a brain tumour, a young girl suffering from the recent loss of her father and a young man in the army.

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.

A fantastic read for anyone interested in books such as the world being attacked by zombies or a story of survival in the wilderness.
