PRAISE FOR ASHES
“Gripped me from beginning to end–dark, creepy, suspenseful. I loved it.”–James Dashner

“A haunting epic story of survival in a shattered world. ASHES is a must read.”–Michael Grant

“Bick delivers an action-packed tale of an apocalypse unfolding, launching a trilogy with flair.”–Publisher’s Weekly

“Splendidly paced apocalyptic zombie horror ends with a thrilling, terrifying cliffhanger.”–Kirkus Reviews

“If Cormac McCarthy and Justin Cronin bore a lovechild . . . Ilsa J. Bick would be their bouncing baby girl.”–randomactsofreading.com

“Bick has written a thriller of a post-apocalyptic novel.”–Ingram’s

“…(a) thoroughly unputdownable story with an off-the-charts creep factor.”–Romantic Times

“…a harrowing apocalyptic survival tale that brims with true horror … No one’s survival is guaranteed here.”–Locus

“…an impeccable sci-fi/horror balance, quick pace, and risky storytelling…”–BCCB

“Bick takes the best of post-apocalyptic, zombie fiction…and adds the exact thing that has been sorely lacking from those genres: girl power… a real girl with brains and heart, just trying to survive in a world that is out to eat her alive.”–VOYA

“In some cases, authors are daring enough (or heartless enough, depending on your tolerance for sad endings) to let their protagonists face seemingly insurmountable obstacles and find that they are, indeed, just that. The shocking conclusion of Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick is one of the coolest new examples of this…”–Horn Book
