sighp three stars and i am angry at having to give this book three stars, because i was so looking forward to it life is unfair.okay here are my gripes if you are planning on reading this one do yourself a favor review ashes trust me do you remember every single person alex encountered in rule i sure didn t and there are so damn many of them and so many additional characters here you go, just from a quick flipping of pages of shadows jed, grace, tom, ray, ruby, leopard, acne, sharon, jess, spide [...]
So, the good news here is that the two things that bothered me most about Ashes namely, Alex s endless agonizing and baseless assumptions and Ellie, the most annoying preteen on Earth fictional or otherwise were completely absent from this book The bad news is that the way that Ilsa J Bick accomplished those two feats made this book incredibly boring for me And I didn t have Katherine Kellgren s amazing voice to get me through this time.This book is 100% action, all the time That would be kind o [...]
AAAAHHHH What kind of a cliffhanger end is that Ashes I need to read this RIGHT NOW or I will pull my hair out
This was such a hard book for me to reviewI have to say I was kind of disappointed with SHADOWS the second book in Ilsa Bick s Ashes trilogy Book one Ashes was told only through Alex s view SHADOWS is through multiple points of view Alex, Tom, Lena, Chris, and Peter There are soooooooooo many people to keep track of the main characters are split apart at different locations trying to find one another, or thinking the other is dead It is aaaallll veeeeeeeeeery confusing.There is so much going on [...]
I m still recovering from the bitter disappointment of the last 200 pages of the first book Ashes I ll probably read this second installment, hoping, praying, it will be as great as the first half of its prequel Sadly, not holding my breath though.
I loved Ashes, the first book in this trilogy Loved it It s a great apocalypse book It s exciting, suspenseful, romantic, has an intriguing plot and cool twists, a pretty cool heroine, an awesome hero, a cool little sidekick.So when I finished reading Shadows two nights ago and was so pissed off I could barely see straight, that was a rather huge disappointment I ve calmed down since and the urge to write Ilsa J Bick a letter and demand an apology on behalf of the fans of Ashes has passed, but t [...]
UNA SEGUNDA PARTE MUY DECEPCIONANTESombras es la segunda parte de la trilog a Cenizas que comenz con la novela que lleva el miso nombre Es una trilog a post apocal ptica con una ambientaci n interesante y que trata el tema de los zombies La primera parte me gust basante, me pareci una noela trepidante y con una trama interesante Sin embargo, esta segunda parte da un giro y cambia la narraci n y el rumbo de la historia Decae mucho en ritmo y en todo en general, y es por eso que me ha decepcionado [...]
Mit den verschiedenen Sichtweisen bin ich langsam klar gekommen Ich wei aber nicht was ich von Alex neuen F higkeiten halten soll Es hat mich aber wieder gut unterhalten Deshalb 4 Sterne.
Premise After the ending of the first book, Ashes, I was looking forward to finding out about the Changed kids and how exactly they had Changed I also really wanted to know if Tom, Ellie and Alex would find each other again.Characters The problem with this book is that there are so many characters in this one and it leapfrogs between the POV of each one of them Whereas Ashes was told from Alex s perspective and had a clear line of development, in Shadows there is so much jumping around that cha [...]
Much sima acci n, mucha tensi n Pero me daba sensaci n de que era sangre por sangre, la trama no avanzaba apenas, y cuando lo hac a no me enteraba de nada Las ltimas 100 p ginas mejoran, pero a n as lo lentas y embarulladas que se me han hecho las otras 500 no me lo quita nadie.
The transformation inside Alex is quite apparent in this one Her thoughts travel towards the monster inside her and it slowly starts to change her Reading it was terribly creepy I couldn t help but shiver when she starts to think about the most oddest things Cannibalism included ICK In an almost disgusting array of detail, you re privy to the hunger pangs of people who eat people I seriously couldn t stomach this, and even had to put my book down because I was eating at the same time.The multipl [...]
This book This entire book was like dangling a piece of candy in front of you, and when you walk along trying to get to the piece of candy, it moves away so you re endlessly chasing after it Emotional payoff What emotional payoff This entire book feels like a buildup to the third, which should be huge and all over the place and maybe satisfying but that s not this book This book is the teaser It s the one nudging all the chess pieces into place in preparation for the final move It doesn t help t [...]
I actually liked this book I would have gone with an higher starred review if the author hadn t switched points of view in the story so much If it had not been recently that I had read the first one I would have been lost Lots of gore in these books so if you don t like that kind of thing you might beware.
I loved ashes But I m really sad about the ending it s a total cliffhanger I can t stop thinking about it I can t wait tell I get shadows
WOW I think this might be the first sequel where I gave both the first and second book in a trilogy 5 stars Often trilogies suffer from the Second Book Syndrom not this one In Ashes, we follow the journey of Alex as she struggles to find safety in the post Apocalypse, where zombies aka The Changed rule the world This second book picks up right where the first one left off, with Alex fighting for her life.The main difference between this book and the first one, is that in Shadows we are exposed t [...]
Wow der zweite Teil war ja noch besser, brutaler und spannender als der erste Teil
I had to take a minute to catch my breath and collect my thoughts before writing this review I have so much to say and I m not sure where to start, but I know that I want to keep this one shorter than my Ashes reviewat one was a novel in itself Suffice it to say, Shadows was one jaw dropping moment after another, and though I feared for Alex, I never wanted it to end.Shadows resumes right where Ashes left off, but I suggest that you re read Ashes before diving into this second installment There [...]
WellI loved Ashes Loved it Couldn t put it down So I was beyond ecstatic when a friend loaned me her pre release copy of Shadows I have to admit, I gave up on this one a little than halfway through the book And I never give up on books I just felt that I was forcing myself to read it just to get through Still a decent story, but the part of Ashes that I liked the least the Rule section was the main focus of Shadows There are some good and gory zombie moments, but Rule seemed to rule the book an [...]

4.5 starsOh.f cking.god.I flew through this I couldn t put it down It left me breathless and on the edge of my seat, with a pounding heart and too many thoughts in my head than I could put into this review But I ll try.Shadows picked up right where Ashes had ended, and that was a great thing because I had finished Ashes just about a week ago It could be confusing though if there was time in between reading the books And, unlinke book one, this one has multiple POVs that change very quickly almo [...]

4.5 stars Alex has escaped from Rule but what new horrors face her in the ravaged world outside Tom is safe but what will he risk to find Alex Chris how much does he really know about the terrible darkness of Rule And what are his true feelings for Alex Ellie where is she Yes indeed All questions I had when I had finished Ashes the first book in this trilogy Some are answered some are not and I can hardly wait to find out how this one turns out for all involved Monsters await me probably quite l [...]
Un 3,5 en realidad.Sombras ha sido una continuaci n que me ha gustado m s que su primera parte No s si se debe al hecho de que ya no nos centramos solo en Alex, sino que vivimos la historia desde diferentes l neas paralelas que se van entrelazando, cosa que me ha gustado, porque cuando lleg bamos a un punto interesante de una, la autora nos trasladaba a otra diferente y la intriga se manten a, impidi ndonos dejar de leer A pesar de ser un libro con unas cu ntas p ginas, tal vez demasiadas para l [...]
I loved this even than the first, which surprised me.I also loved the multiple perspectives, which also surprised me.This book was even fast paced than the first, I honestly couldn t stop reading I think I finished it in about a day and a night I kind of regret that because now I have to wait a whole year to find out what happens The whole reason I started this trilogy was to stop thinking about The Hunger Games, but now I can t stop thinking about Ashes I loved this book, and I can t really f [...]
Ashes first in the trilogy serves up a jovial runaway train of a young adult horror adventure novel combining peril, mystery and a distinctive take on the zombie apocalypse genre But as is the way with runaway trains, Ashes crashed The last third of the book is a tedious slog through a totalitarian post apocalyptic society Ilsa Bick concerns herself so much with not spoiling her ongoing mysteries that she refuses to properly describe the setting or let anything consequential happen.And if the fi [...]
Woah.This was woah I usually find that the second book in a series is never as good as the first, but this was even better There was never a dull moment, and the writing was incredible This book is definitely not for the weak stomached or the overly sensitive It was really disturbing at some points so much that I had to put the book down, which I never do and really really gory But what do you expect It s a zombie apocalypse You think they re won t be a couple limbs torn out here and there or a [...]
I wanted to love this book so much because I completely loved the first book I think, for me, the book didn t work as well for two main reasons The first is the change to multiple perspectives the first book had so much tension because it was from the point of view of one isolated person Alex didn t know what was going on with anyone else and she didn t know if they were still alive In Shadows, you do know You know what s going on in pretty much everyone s mind Even people who are only going to [...]
Full review to be posted soon.This is three and half stars for me although I may need to think about the grade While I really enjoyed the first book Ashes, I was pretty frustrated with the main plot in this one which really suffers from middle book syndrome The introduction of new characters and adding POV chapters of other characters gave the book a weird kenetic tone and pace especially in the beginning I also felt too much was going on and it was hard to follow.But while I am not a fan of h [...]
sigh Who is this book written for It can t be for the female population, at least, not the vast majority of females I mean, sure, I like violence and gore but I m an exception Most women will cringe away from the blood and guts violence pa looza within the pages of this book And because the first book in this series does pander to the female population, albeit in a bloody valentine type way, it is clearly for teh ladies This second book I can t say And honestly I don t want to know 2 stars.
