Waiting on Wednesday #39: Shadows by Ilsa J. Bick

Ilsa J. Bick

Publication Date:
September 25, 2012


Hardcover, 528 pages





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 thought Rule was a sanctuary for her and those she’d come to love.

But she was wrong.

Now she’s 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.

Welcome to Shadows, the second book in the haunting apocalyptic Ashes Trilogy: where no one is safe and humans may be the worst of the monsters.


Ashes ended on such a cliffhanger and a disturbing one at that. My mind kept trying to decipher what it could be, so I’m psyched that this is coming out next week 😛

What’s your Waiting on Wednesday book this week?

    I read Ashes earlier this year, and absolutely LOVED it. It’s fantastic, and yes, oh the cliffhanger. It was so unbelievably abrupt and just like, “BOOM” in your face. A BIT OF A SPOILER HERE Are you wondering what happened to Tom, like I am doing now?

    This one is second in a trilogy and I haven’t even seen the first one but I already think I’ll read it when it comes out. I think I even saw it on NetGalley. Great pick! I hope you enjoy it.

    I’ve heard good things about Ashes but I haven’t had the chance to read it yet. Maybe I’ll read them both back to back. Thanks for the rec! Hope you enjoy Shadows as much as Ashes 🙂
