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.


MAD says:

So. Finished up Ashes last night, 2nd half of book is better and apparently sequel on the horizon, but it's primary focus seems to be on interpersonal relationship crap than on the nitty gritty survival zombie *Changed* folk stuff.

Anyway though, it IS good and I did like how the first book ended, despite all the touchy-feely stuff ;P

So of course I'd better get the sequel as soon as it comes up for grabs hahaha
