Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall '12 Kids List
“Bick's follow-up to Ashes is another heart-pounding, frantic, action-packed adventure for those who can't get enough of the zombie apocalypse. As protagonist Alex fights to survive in a world gone seriously haywire, she begins to piece together just how dangerous her situation is. These are not the walking dead we know from television and film; they are cognizant beings, fueled as much by shrewd instinct as by animalistic blood lust. Bick keeps her complicated plot moving with plenty of twists and turns, creating a cringe-inducing, fascinating, and utterly entertaining read.”

Description
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.
