An Average Read

Ashes tell a story of the world sent back to the dark ages by a series of Electric Magnetic Pulse (EMP). These pulses have killed off a whole lot of people and for some of those who survived are far from human. Into this new world we follow a teenage girl with a terminal brain tumour, who was hiking by herself at the time of the attacks. The EMP's have a surprising effect on this young lass.

I liked the mechanics used in this book, each chapters read like an episode of a TV show. We have a build up to a cliff-hanger ending to the chapter. What I did not like about this book was that I found it a tad predictable. This might be because I read too many books of this genre. All other aspects of this book such as character development and interaction was engaging and entertaining. Overall this book is well worth a read

3 Stars
