Tomorrow Ilsa J. Bick’s end-of-the-world story continues on. The sequel to ASHES, SHADOWS, drops like it’s about to get eaten. Now if you’re a good reader you should be salivating at the face for this title. I mean the end of ASHES was so incredibly infuriating and cliffhangerish that I started frothing about a year ago (maybe a bit more). If you haven’t even read ASHES yet then what the hell are you doing? You have homework to do.
For the rest of you, in case you need a refresher you can head on over to Ilsa’s site for a quick recap. SHADOWS doesn’t sucker into the standard billion-page recap that seems to creep all over YA series so if you don’t know what’s going on, or can’t remember, you’ll be rather lost. I know I’ll be diving into that ASHES cheat sheet. I remember quite a bit of what happened (a rarity for me) but I figured anything that’s pertinent to SHADOWS Ilsa will mention on her own recap. Safe bet, right?
Coincidentally SHADOWS is also this month’s pick for my fantabulous sooper sekret book club, YAckers. We plan to YAck it good. And we may even have a copy or two to give away when we post the YAck on the YAcker’s site.
Not sure what’s headed your way in SHADOWS? Check out the blurb from Goodreads –
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.
Rather elusive but there you go. It’s a tease, I’ll admit that. A big one. Have you READ the end of ASHES? This is nothing compared to that so I’ll take it.
Now is your chance to win a finished copy courtesy of Egmont. What do you need to do?
