It just got to be too much! Monsters is six hundred eighty pages of dense, heavily detailed action and more minor plot twists than I qshes keep straight as the main characters regroup after the underground mine detonation at the conclusion of Shadows to figure out what’s next now that most of the Chuckies or “Changed” are dead. Alex is still going through self conflict and looking at life with j.bivk and pained eyes. She doesn’t leave you hanging with questions unasked.

After the second book I had adjusted to having the multiple point of views and I enjoyed it a lot more.

See all 6 questions about Monsters…. And the other stories were dominating over Alex and Tom’s stories and I couldn’t care any less about Peter or Chris. Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 asyes reviews.

The woman was an Air Force major and is a child psychiatrist. Sometimes Ellie-the-eight-year-old seemed a tad too smart for her age. I think if you are invested in the series, you have to go for it.

Monsters (Ashes Trilogy, #3) by Ilsa J. Bick

Overall, this book could’ve been amazing. The only gripe I have with the book is that there is no flipping way the characters could survive the trials that they go through, but then I just let go and said what the heck. Even the heroes have flaws- they don’t always do the right thing- which made them seem very real.


That’s a thing I now know. It quickly became tedious reading about a fight scene that seemed to go on for hours. Even though all of the characters are not interacting they are all connected.

The w How exactly does one write pages and write in such a way that the action never-ever-ever-amen lets up? The kids that were spared were mostly likely so because Published September 10th by Brilliance Corporation.

At that time I j.bifk didn’t care for the guy and was worried their would be a love triangle but thankfully it did not come to that.

I guess I’d rank Monsters barely ahead of Shadows because of a few touching goodbye scenes at the end, and Jasper the ten-year-old pyrotechnic is an interesting new character. But that is what makes the lisa oh so good! Then the second book Shadows came out and I was disappointed in it, but I gave Bick the benefit of the doubt because the second book is usually not as great and is just a hurdle we have to get through to get to the final book.

Want to Read Currently Llsa Read. I didn’t like the direction in which the series was headed in Shadows, and I liked it even less in Monsters. There’s also a scene of brutal animal torture that shocked me more than the humans being chewed on. He has her beat there, so statistically speaking, his body count has to be higher.

His backstory is just plain weird, not chosen by his grandfather to live in Rule, instead left behind with an abusive father, but still ended up in Rule anyway.


I did feel that this high-adrenalin stuff petered out towards the middle of the book, but we were still left following the different characters, and hoping that somehow they would find their way back to each other.

I still had high hopes. She pulls you into the scene and you are on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens. There was a lot of action going on, it literally never slowed down even a bit, so despite its monstrous size, it was still a very fast read. The tiny chapters helped to keep the story running smoothly and the change in POV’s didn’t feel to choppy and I wasn’t confused. The action sequences carried on for pages, especially in the first several chapters.

I’m ready to read her next book — I already have it.

Although I very much enjoyed Asyes, the first book in the series, I felt the series went downhill from there. Preview — Monsters by Ilsa J. Refresh and try again. While we’re rooting for Alex to take matters into her own hands, it’s also impossible not to start seeing things from another perspective and embrace some things as necessities, no matter how morally dubious they may seem.

Don’t we want action in our books? The ending of this story was fitting, and I liked how although not everything was wrapped up and rfee with a bow, we were given hope that things would work out okay. This is merely a personal opinion, though, and you may really enjoy this unique plot.
