Publisher's Summary

The Changed are on the move. The Spared are out of time. The End…is now. When her parents died, Alex thought things couldn't get much worse - until the doctors found the monster in her head. She headed into the wilderness as a good-bye, to leave everything behind. But then the end of the world happened, and Alex took the first step down a treacherous road of betrayal and terror and death. Now, with no hope of rescue - on the brink of starvation in a winter that just won't quit - she discovers a new and horrifying truth. The Change isn't over. The Changed are still evolving. And…they've had help. With this final volume of The Ashes Trilogy, Ilsa J. Bick delivers a riveting, blockbuster finish, returning listeners to a brutal, post-apocalyptic world where no one is safe and hope is in short supply. A world where, from these ashes, the monsters may rise.

This is not a book, its a poor play

Way too over the top for my taste. I like to absorb and consider the story as it unfolds. This style of writing, in my opinion, is distracting. I know a good author paints a picture but this carries the premise to the extreme. Sadly the story is lost with long winded, blow by blow descriptions which (for me) stop the story in its tracks. It seemed to take 30 minutes to describe a body falling down a hole...irritating. When a piece becomes too wordy my focus shifts to the narrator and given the dramatic emphasis on every sentence I just couldn't cope. Finally gave up.

Too busy and difficult to follow

What could Ilsa Bick have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I kept listening to this series in the hope that something significant would happen in the plot, or that the ending would be memorable.... I was disappointed both ways. There were too many characters and twists to follow and too many plot developments that seemed to go nowhere. Honestly, I don't even know what the main plot was supposed to be.

How could the performance have been better?

This series was especially hard to listen to because of the narrator. When listening without headphones I sometimes muted the sound in embarrassment at the narrator's shrieking and shouting.... there was a lot of shrieking....

Any additional comments?

I just feel like I wasted a lot of time and money; and I can't believe that I actually listened to all three books - had I not been laid up in bed from surgery I never would have listened to more than the first book.
