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.

EMP causes all kinds of trouble.

This is the third book in the series. An EMP wipes out modern technology, and also zaps the higher brain functions of a certain percentage of humanity. The "changed" are not zombies. Most of the higher brain functions are gone, but they are more dangerous than you might think, because they retain the ability to think, plan, work together, and use simple tools. Up to a point, they can even use weapons. Fortunately, they can feel pain, they retain the instinct of self-preservation, unlike the traditional zombie, and they are susceptible to injury and death.

Katherine Kellgren is one of the best narrators I have ever listened too. She has a clear, pleasant voice, and an expressive style that carries you right into the story with her. I hope she will read more books like this.
