Out Of The Ashes is book three in The Ending series by Lindsey Fairleigh and Lindsey Pogue. This book/series has left me completely breathless. I feel like I just ran a marathon. (Or maybe that’s because I frequently read while on the treadmill!) I have loved this series from the beginning and that has not changed, maybe even gotten stronger, as this third book takes us deeper than ever before into the minds and hearts of the characters I have so grown to love.

WTF was that ending?? And now I have to wait a few months for the next book in the series...UGH.

Yoo Hooooo....Ms Fairleigh....*waving hand ---- I would LOVE an ARC RIGHT NOW!! ;-)

So, again we follow the story of Zoe and Dani and it looks like they finally are ready to settle down and will hopefully be out of the danger...but really? Now what kind of Apocalypse book would be without drama and safety?

This one is told from the POV of Dani
Hold your breath, take a running start and get ready to be cannonballed right into the action! Out of the Ashes by that dynamic writing duo of Lindsey Fairleigh and Lindsey Pogue is another multi-faceted, white-knuckle tale of life after the end of the world as we know it. Zoe is back, her memory gone and hope is fading for the return of her over-the-top personality and determination. Even Dani can’t get through to her and Jake is suffering at the loss of the woman he loves. Their trek is getting mor ...more

I received a copy of this book directly from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Let me preface this review by saying that I adore this series as a whole--I've been following it from the moment I was sent the ARC of the first book--but this installment to the series wasn't my favorite. It's been more than a year since I read the second book in The Ending series, so going into Out of the Ashes by Lindsey Fairleigh and Lindsey Pogue, I had a bit of a hard time sinking

I just can't get enough of these books...

I love these books, and I've recommended them to a number of people. The storyline is a bit hard to follow at times due to an almost overwhelming number of characters, but it's pulled together so well that I still give it four stars. There is quite a bit of offensive language in it, but it would ruin the character's credibility and continuity if left out. Each book ends with a cliffhanger and leaves me desperate for more. The characters are so well-writt

Wow, is all I have to say, the wait to read this beauty was definitely worth it.

This novel continues the tale of best friends Zoe and Dani and their group through a world effected by a virus. This new addition is a wonderful way to further the series, the characters have grown so much, you forget that they are much older than the reader assumes, the fact that they are adults and they have hopes and dreams that can't be reached pulls at the heart strings and makes this novel so much m

It's hard to keep spoilers out of the review, so I will have to keep it short and sweet. This was another great epic entry into the series. The roller coaster ride of the new world centered around the lives of Dani and Zoe is a wild one with twists, turns, and unexpected drops. We no longer have young ladies, we have women of the new frontier leading the way back to their hometown. As secrets and lies are uncovered along the way, so are there beautif

Continues the good standard

It kept me interested the whole time and had great character development. Duller than then the previous books it set everything into perspective and set it up very rapidly for the next book in the series. Not my favorite in the series but I’m still enjoying it.

Not my favorite book in the series, but it does give background to some characters. The plot is not anywhere near as active as the first two books; this one is mostly just about story.

Free from the Colony, Zoe, Dani and their crew of other lost souls continue to make their way across the country. They are in search of a place to call home, a safe place where they don't have to sleep with one eye open anymore and be able to try to build a life. Zoe is still struggling with the effects of whatever happened to her during her escape from Clara the psycho girl who keeps trying to kill her and Dani seems to be losing herself to her animal friends. In addition to the every day strug ...more

Story continues right where book 2 leaves off and keeps the storyline going strong. You continue to learn more about the characters and their pasts. They are moving forward to the coast and looking forward to settling down which seems to bring more problems into their group. The story is still very engaging, keeps you on your toes and you can't wait till 2015 to find out what is coming next. Great series.

Not my normal read but after book 1 had to read 2...and then 3. I really like the characters and the story is interesting and not predictable. Will definitely read book 4 when it is released.

I’m sad to say that’s I’m really disappointed in this book. It really didn’t pull me in and make me want to read it all in one sitting like the previous two. There was no excitement, adventure, or character development. It was just so sloooow sometimes and really choppy other times. I was unimpressed and won’t be reading the final book. Bummer! I really wanted to love it as much as the other two!

Book #3 picks up from where book #2 left off, in the middle of rescuing Zoe. Total twist in the end of book #2 leading to book #3, can't say I mind it. The twist readily hyped up the story and brought out true colors of character. The book kept me in the edge of my seat. Excited to ready the last book, book #4, but also sad since their series has been amazing.

The story continues right where book 2 leaves off and keeps going strong. Lots more to learn about the characters and their pasts as they move towards the coast looking forward to finally settling down. Not as much action in this one as it's more focused on character development.

Another cliff hanger ending! Onto the next book in this great apocalyptic series.
Tracy Parker

These books show true friendship. The good and the bad. Living through the apocalypse can certainly strain relationships, and our besties in this book have their moments.
