Summary

The world has ended... What comes next? Smallpox epidemics, floods, droughts—for 16-year old Lucy, the end of the world came and went, stealing with it everyone she ever loved. Even the landscape of her beloved New York City is ever-shifting and full of hidden dangers. As the weather rages out of control, she survives alone in the wilds of Central Park, hunting and foraging for food and making do with the little she has, while avoiding roving scavengers and thieves. But when an unrelenting pack of vicious hounds begins to hunt her, Lucy is not sure she can continue on her own. Then, suddenly, she is swept to safety by a mysterious boy named Aidan, who helps her escape the hounds and urgers her to join a band of survivors. Reluctantly, she finds him after her home is destroyed; however, new dangers await her.An army of Sweepers terrorizes the camp, carting off innocent people and infecting them with the plague. Lucy and Aidan realize that it's up to them to save their friends, but Lucy doesn't know that the Sweepers have laid a trap—for her. There is something special about Lucy, and the Sweepers will stop at nothing to have her in their clutches.

Fairly predictable

Good story but fairly predictable. I’ll still listen to the rest of the series though because it’s well written.

Expected something better

What did you like best about Ashes, Ashes? What did you like least?

i liked the world building it was unique and I really could imagine it vividly .. Lucy was a good main character and Loe :'( I loved him so much

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I have mixed feelings because I think there is a second book for this series yet it is not a continuation .. so I don't know what to think

What does Cassandra Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

she have a voice of a narrator and I liked her performance very much specially for Henry and Leo and grammile rose :)

Could you see Ashes, Ashes being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

I think so .. but with better adjustments to the characters .. Maybe Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer

Any additional comments?

I was so excited to read this book but it disappointed me in some ways .. I didn't enjoy it that much but the world building is very good
