Today we’d like to tell you a bit about Shadows: The Ashes Trilogy by Ilsa J. Bick. Welcome to Shadows, the second book in the haunting apocalyptic Ashes Trilogy: where no one is safe and humans may be the worst of the monsters.
The Apocalypse does not end. The Changed will grow in numbers. The Spared may not survive.
Even before the EMPs brought down the world, Alex was on the run from the demons of her past and the monster living in her head. After the world was gone, she believed Rule could be a sanctuary for her and those she’d come to love.
But she was wrong.
Now Alex is in the fight of her life against the adults, who would use her, the survivors, who don’t trust her, and the Changed, who would eat her alive.
*** We have eight copies of Shadows to give away. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for your chance to win a copy.
Praise for Ashes:
“Gripped me from beginning to end – dark, creepy and suspenseful.”-James Dashner, New York Times best-selling author of The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials
“A haunting and epic story of survival in a shattered world, Ashes is a must read.”-Michael Grant, New York Times best-selling author of Gone
“An action-packed tale of an apocalypse unfolding, launching a trilogy with flair.“-Publishers Weekly
“…a harrowing apocalyptic survival tale that brims with true horror…. Ashes inhabits the same dark country as The Stand or Justin Cronin’s recent viral apocalypse The Passage.”-Locus Magazine
