Ashes - Ilsa J. Bick
Full Review to be posted soon:Wow - didn't expect this to be a dark and gritty and zomg disgusting at times to read. Wonderfully dark and stark and I loved the tense and atmospheric first half although the second half kind of lost some momentum but I definitely enjoyed the book which has a great heroine and this is how you do dystopian/zombie/horror YA. Although there was moments of TSTL especially in the beginning with one annoying character, which I think their decisions and actions made the tension forced, this was a solid opening to a wickedly chilling series - but I have to warn you there is a beyond evil cliffhanger ending and I hate how books leave you like that in the lurch.
