The Apocalypse does not end. The Changed will grow in numbers. The Spared may not survive. Even before the EMPs brought down the world, Alex was on the run from the demons of her past and the monster living in her head. After the world was gone, she believed Rule could be a sanctuary for her and those she'd come to love. But she was wrong.Now Alex is in the fight of her life against the adults, who would use her, the survivors, who don't trust her, and the Changed, who would eat her alive. Welcome to Shadows, the second book in the haunting apocalyptic Ashes Trilogy: where no one is safe and humans may be the worst of the monsters.
Ilsa J. Bick is a child psychiatrist, as well as a film scholar, surgeon wannabe, former air force major, and award-winning author of short stories and novels. Ilsa lives with her family in Alabama.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Sequel Watching the character arcs was fantastic. Again, full of action and also very scary. Such a good book but get the last book when you buy this one because you won't want to wait. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it! The transformation inside Alex is quite apparent in this one. Her thoughts travel towards the monster inside her and it slowly starts to change her. Reading it was terribly creepy. I couldn't help but shiver when she starts to think about the most oddest things. Cannibalism included. (ICK!) In an almost disgusting array of detail, you're privy to the hunger pangs of people who eat people. I seriously couldn't stomach this, and even had to put my book down because I was eating at the same time. The multiple plot lines was rather extensive, yet even though one chapter ended on cliffhangers I was still tied to the entire story. I couldn't help but keep reading only because there were so many revelations and twists and turns, it made my head spin. The only problem I had with this was that there WERE too many characters and so many plot lines, that I did have to remember where each character left off. After a couple of these, I started to get used to it, and was excited every time that character appeared in a chapter. I was going to rate this 3, but I felt it was too low because this had so much plot development, that it literally blew my mind. So many things happened, and it was all incredibly crazy in the end. Overall, if you enjoy post-apocalyptic novels like I do, then run out and grab this one! It's not to be missed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! The author definitely puts the main characters and the readers through the emotional ringer with this series. It's not often that one is left feeling so anxious about the fate of fictional characters but Ms. Bick has created a scarily realistic world were the characters essentially good people (in most cases) are trying to survive as best they can in a world turned horribly upsidedown.
