Monsters by Ilsa J Bick: Review and Giveaway!
Posted by Krystal Larson at 9:07 PM Monday, October 14, 2013
The Changed are on the move. The Spared are out of time. The End...is now.
When her parents died, Alex thought things couldn't get much worse-until the doctors found the monster in her head.
She headed into the wilderness as a good-bye, to leave everything behind. But then the end of the world happened, and Alex took the first step down a treacherous road of betrayal and terror and death.
Now, with no hope of rescue-on the brink of starvation in a winter that just won't quit-she discovers a new and horrifying truth.
The Change isn't over.
The Changed are still evolving.
And...they've had help.
With this final volume of The Ashes Trilogy, Ilsa J. Bick delivers a riveting, blockbuster finish, returning readers to a brutal, post-apocalyptic world where no one is safe and hope is in short supply.
A world where, from these ashes, the monsters may rise.
I've loved this series so far and this book definitely did not disappoint! Perfect for Halloween and filled with suspense, readers should run to pick up Monsters. Alex, the main character, greets readers for a third time in this series. She has been saved from the change by a tumor in her head and must figure out how to survive in this new world. When the "Changed" were on their own it seemed possible to beat them, but now that Alex has discovered that they are receiving help...from humans...something must be done.
Alex's character is wonderful. The author does not make her into a wimpy, crying damsel in distress. Instead, she is headstrong and quick on her feet. She is not reliant on anyone's help. I really enjoyed her character more than any other aspect of the novel. The setting and plot of the novel simply blew me out of the water. I found the description of the Changed's habits and ways of killing to be chilling and spooky. I thought that the author managed to really build up and maintain the suspenseful feeling throughout the novel. So many questions are being asked as loose ends are slowly being tied up; young adult/teen readers will love this novel!
