    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.We start right out where the previous book ended. Dani and Zoe have been rescued from the clutches of the Colony and from Clara, but not without damage. Dani is severely injured, both emotionally and physically. Her arm is broken, she is battered and bruised, and her ability is off line. Zoe, though, has suffered by the hands of Clara. Her memory is gone. She doesn’t recognize anyone, the woman she was is gone. As the weeks pass, she grows to trust everyone again but can’t bear to look into Jake’s eyes knowing he is looking for the woman he fell in love with, not this new person, the woman she is now.The group wants to put as much distance as possible as quickly as possible between them and the colony. They decide to go back to Jason, Zoe and Dani’s home town, Bodega Bay. On the way they pass through Lake Tahoe where they meet up with some of their friends and make a startling discovery. I want to say here, that although it is not necessary, I am so very glad I read the prequels first. I already had the back story on something that happens here that added so much to my understanding of what happened.I am so impressed with this group of people. They are challenged at every turn as they travel week after week. These people that like me have grown so accustomed to cars, computers, cell phones, and every other modern convenience, are now living the life of survivalists. Animals plays such a big part of these books. They do all their traveling on horseback and with Dani’s ability to communicate with the animals, their relationship with them is a very close one. The horses love them and will do anything to protect them.They are forced to travel through the desert, going without water for long periods of time. They have to constantly be on the lookout for crazies. But along the way their relationship with one another becomes stronger than ever. Dani and Zoe’s lifelong friendship holds true, even though Zoe has lost her memory. The bond and the love is still there.There are many secrets kept and there is loss and heartbreak along the way. But there is also love and friendship. Our two couples, Jason and Dani, and Jake and Zoe, grow stronger than ever with some very sweet sigh worthy moments. Along the way, the group plans out what they hope could be a good plan for their futures. A place to settle down and prosper, be happy, be safe. But so many obstacles are put in their paths. And of course, there is a big reveal and a new situation arises right at the end.This series has kept me on the edge of my seat from the beginning and this book was no different. I know the next book, Before The Dawn, is in the works and for me it can’t get here fast enough. This series is simply incredible and I just can’t say enough about it. So I hope you will consider giving it a try. I hope you fall in love with it the way I have.

    **4.25 Who Am I StarsWTF 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, Zoe and now we get a look into Jake's head!I can't wait for the next one to learn more of what is really going on.

    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 more treacherous, danger lurks around every corner, from the unbearable heat and drought of the desert, to the discovery that someone among them may be a programmed pawn playing on the General’s evil team. Dani is struggling with an addiction that can drive her mad, in denial and suffering with only her animals for comfort. Heroes will die, but there is still a renewal of life that comes out of the ashes of death. Powers become stronger, sharper and an aid to survival, but even they can be dangerous if misused. The group takes on new survivors, while losing others, but still they continue on.Will their journey never end? Will they find a safe haven in their hometown of Bodega Bay? Will memories of their previous lives become a comfort or will they fester and leave a bittersweet aftertaste? The end of their journey hopefully grows near as only true grit keeps them going in the face of trouble and uncertainty.The two Lindseys have done it again! Operating like one mind, they have put even more suspense and action into their already emotionally grueling series, The Ending. Digging even deeper into each character’s past, these people come to life and become even more memorable. Each scene is filled with vivid details, high emotion and tension as the reader is pulled ever deeper into the maze of twists and subplots faced by our heroes. The authors have painted a sense of community and loyalty that survives all obstacles while keeping the tension high, the pace flowing like a raging river one moment and slowing to a gentle stream the next with perfect timing. I loved single page more than the last, well, except for the one that says: The End.I was fortunate enough to receive this copy from Lindsey Fairleigh and Lindsey Pogue in exchange for my honest review. I'm still thinking back on all that happened and am grateful for their generosity!Series: The Ending - Book 3Publication Date: August 21, 2014Publisher: L2 BooksPrint Length: 423 pagesGenre: NA Romantic Post-ApocalypticAvailable from: Amazon |  Barnes & Noble

    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-written that you feel like you know them and know how they'll react to different circumstances. While that may make it seem predictable, the plotline has so many twists thrown in that it keeps you guessing anyway. Obviously this series is a work of fiction, but you find yourself nodding along and thinking to yourself, "yeah, under those circumstances, unrealistic though they may be, this is plausible." I love stories that make me think that way. I love the detail that's out into the daily routines of the characters. When the world is attempting to rebuild, there's a major learning curve, and I feel like these stories portray that very well.

    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 in. Like Zoe, one of the main characters of the series, I felt like I had a form of amnesia. I couldn't remember what had happened previously in the series, particularly near the ending of the second book, and so being dropped into the fast-paced and somewhat alarming beginning of the third book, I was rightfully confused. It took me a while to sort out what was happening and to remind myself of previous plot points... and in that way, I felt very close to Zoe in her struggle with trying to remember her past. It was an unexpected and strange sisterhood between us throughout the book.Technically speaking, the book was exceedingly well written. I didn't run into any grammatical errors, typos, or punctuation problems. The characters were all distinct, easy to love or hate respectively, and the story moved along at a steady pace. The setting was rich with detail but not so much as to bog down the narrative, and overall, I enjoyed the book as a whole.There was only one problem.I slogged through the book. It was odd how slowly I moved through the story--and it took me till nearly the end of the book to figure out why. There were no big battles or dramatic plot points. The majority of the book was spent delving into the character's emotional states and the relationships between the members of their group... but very little was spent in any sort of action scene or on any sort of big battle with a nemesis. It was all very interesting--don't get me wrong.. but by the end of the book, I was left feeling that nothing had happened. As much as I enjoyed spending time with the characters, by the end I was glad to finally be done and to set the book aside and move on. I'm even a little hesitant now to pick up the fourth book, though I will be doing so shortly... this installment just wasn't as tension filled as I'd come to expect--although, thank goodness, there was a lot more of the romance present that had been missing from the second book in the series.If you like post-apocalyptic stories filled with special abilities and great characters, I highly recommend this series, even if this wasn't my favorite out of the bunch.

    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 more relateable.The cliff hanger at the end leaves the reader in a sense of panic and dread, how much more can this group of survivers take!? As always L2 have written a wonderful book, the writing flows as does each scene, the characters interact easily and each are relateable in their own way. A great book, definitely worth the wait, I can't wait for the next one! Highly reccommend this series to anyone who is a fan of, well any genre, great books!

    For the full review, go to Miss Boxy Frown!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 beautiful revelations and more. As usual, I am eagerly anticipating the next entry into the series. Things are never tied up in a bow After the Ending!

    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 struggles to survive Dani struggles with the knowledge of what her mother had done and that she is still alive. This knowledge is dangerous, more dangerous than she can possibly imagine. This series just keeps getting better as layers start to peel away to reveal what happened to create this world, and how those who survived can continue to live their lives. These characters aren't invincible either, you will see them bend to the breaking point or lose themselves all together, this is a touch and violent new world and they are lucky to have survived as long as they have but their struggles are far from over. Like the other books the action and the character building gets equal play and doesn't disappoint. My only wish for these books is that I didn't have to wait for the next one but even still I am excited and gripping the edge of my seat to see what new challenge this motley crew will have to face in order to survive.

    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.

    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.

    To see this review on my blog and for other reviews please click here: much as I had high hopes for this book, I genuinely didn't think it would be able to surpass the first two books, but I'm happy to say I was wrong. I found the third book in this series so engrossing and engaging that I just couldn't put it down. It far surpassed the first two (which really is saying something as I really enjoyed them!).I don't often have spoilers in my reviews but as this is the third book in the series, it's becoming more difficult to say what I love about these books without spoiling them. So again, if you didn't see the warning above, this review does contain some spoilers!This book leaves right off where Into the Fire ended and I ended up reading it in one day because it had so many twists and turns that were gripping. I absolutely love the development of the powers and the dynamic of the group as they travel across the country. The first part of this book I found a little slower than the others but it really picked up and showed a lot more of the world that we hadn't seen before.I spent the whole book just hoping Zoe & Jake and Dani & Jason would end up happy together. And the scene where Jason gives Dani the ring was so unexpected to me and I just loved it. I have to say that the characters were mostly so happy by the end of the book that I was just dreading something would go terribly wrong for them. Although I was pretty sad at a couple of the deaths in this book I felt they added a reality which didn't quite feel as present before, as many of the characters just seemed 'safe' to me. I loved the introduction of the monitors which added suspicion to every character you'd loved in the series. This is definitely my favourite book of the series so far, the characters have developed so, so much from those we were first introduced to in After the Ending, and they feel so familiar and realistic. Although there are a lot of characters to remember, and I occasionally find I muddle up the points of view, they all add so much to the story. I enjoyed the introduction of Jake's point of view in this book, as well as a couple of other characters. Which meant we got to see more of their background and the thoughts behind their quietness.The ending was pretty sudden but there was a lot of sudden twists towards the end of the book which I found brilliant and didn't expect. As always with this series, it ended on a cliffhanger and I'm just so excited to read more. I cannot wait for the final book to come out this year! Anyone who enjoys dystopian/new adult/romance should definitely pick this series up. And even if you didn't like the first book, I would keep reading, as they definitely get better as they go along.

    WOW! This is a fa nominal Writing Duo.If you read the other two books and the Novellets you have become a fan.There is so much that goes on in this book. This 3rd book picks up right where book two left off.The survivors start out broken, physically and mentally.The truth is out about Dr.Anna Wesley (Jason & Zoe's mom ) and the reason she left them.It was a hard migration for both the animals and characters suffered greatly. There are some second string characters that died.Sarah delivered,they make it back to Bodega Bay and with the New council's blessing they set up a homestead in a nearby town.Outside of the barrier of the "Bay council's" walls.They find there is a danger to giving into their new abilities wholeheartedly.Ther needs to be restraint taken to avoid the irreversible consequences.They are also worried about Cornell Henderson, the Key characters find out that Cornell.H is or once was a clever man.We find that Cornell H had placed monitors in both Jasons and Zoe's life a long time ago to ensure Dr.Anna Wesley compliant to his demands. They must keep that info from the rest of the group for now so not to set off the Cornell's sleeper agents.It was hard to see Jake struggle to accept the new Zoe, while he truly missed the old one.(If you can't tell he is my fave character.) The group also finds out that the Re-gens have a shelf life.Despite Becca trying to hide her illness, so she wouldn't hurt Jake again nor worry the group.Zoe discovers Becca's secret when she finds her in her room surrounded by bloody tissues.There are many more surprises in this book and more loose ends are tied up. It was the first series I got so excited about for a while and to think it all started with a free book offered on Amazon.I have read all the books and bought multiple copies of the books in this series for friends and family they are that good. I am sorry to see it end, but know these Two ladies had other books out separately.I just hope in the futre they will collaborate again on a Horror story or series.

    I read the first two books in this series and really wanted to like the books. The first book was intriguing with a new twist on an old theme. Incorporating the H1N1 virus into the story to explain why some people survived was ingenious (although the idea seems to have been dropped in later explanations). Even more intriguing was the development of new abilities by the survivors. When the writer concentrated on telling that story, the story was good and flowed along well. She could improve on her character and plot development but that was okay as the idea carried the reader along. Unfortunately, the writer tends to waste a LOT of time on very shallow side stories, instantaneous romances between the main characters and rivalries between the girls and other girls. If she just included that in the story line, it would be fine but it got to the point that the whole story was about so and so trying to kill so and so because they had a crush on so and so's boyfriend. Really? I kept reading hoping that once so and so was finally eliminated, the story line would return to the original idea/theme of the book rather than the shallow romances. Unfortunately, that was not to be. I finally gave up when the newest theme turned to chapters upon chapters about characters that had their memories wiped and how they were no longer the same person. Really? Not the same person? The idea is shallow and grew old after one page. I put the book down when it looked like the rest of the book would indeed be dedicated to that theme. Ugh!!!!

    I have followed our band of survivors for two books and have to say I am very impressed with the series. The first two books were very action and drama filled and what this book lacks in action definitely makes up for with secrets, reveals, and some definite character development. Personally I think it was a nice touch and it was just what the doctor ordered for this series, but not Dr. Anna. One aspect I particularly like about this series is how things in the story related well back in to book one and book 2 and it will not go into further detail as to spoil things for others. Another thing that I really enjoyed was how it all ties in together and when I thought I knew what would happen next I was definitely way off. Near the ending of the book they were four or even five monumentally huge reveals that I thought yes that has to be it for this book but it kept going and I learned more and more. Just when I thought things would get easier for our band of survivors I was dead wrong again. I listened to the audiobook addition of the story and the narration was flawless again everything was consistent just doesn't book one and book 2 and it keeps getting better. The voices of times made me laugh but I have to give some credit to the author for that as well. One thing I did notice near the end of the book was the recording got a little choppy however I will chalk this up to my ageing iPod or a rushed download and bad Internet connection. I definitely cannot wait to see what happens next.

    Zoe has lost her memory and that starts a blowup of emotions in this third book to The Ending Series. Dani feels like she lost her best friend. Jake is angry and jealous since Zoe is spending time with anyone who does not feel let down by her new condition. Jason is trying his best to null Zoe's ability so she does not tap into all the emotions and memories around her. This is another great read of survival in a world unknown. They have to travel a long way and find many unknown dangers along the way. Dani finds herself drifting more and more and soon becomes addicted to drifting especially at night. Nobody thinks anything of this until they come across others with Dani's ability and realize that they have become very wild like the animals they connect with. Will Dani be able to kick this addiction and need? Will Zoe get her memory back? I loved Out of Ashes very last page of it. So much happens and relationships are put to the test. We get a new POV and it comes in the form of rugged handsome Jake. I however am a Jason and Dani fan so felt sad I did not get his POV too. This was a intense read and you will love every moment. I can not wait for book for to The Ending Series.

    In this one they finally make it to Bodega Bay and get to set up a nice little colony farm nearby. Of course, first they have to solve some little problems along the way, like getting Zoe’s memory back, finding water in the desert and solving a lot of relationship issues. Our favorite couples: Zoe & Jake and Dani & Jason have some very interesting problems which are solved very satisfactorily. And unfortunately, we have a couple of tragic deaths and an understandable, but heartbreaking departure. I’m not sure I like the ending though. The teaser for the next book is very strange and proposes a lot of odd questions. Quick Thoughts: 1)There’s A LOT of talking and emoting compared to real action.2)Not sure if I trust the normality of Bodega Bay or the honesty of Charles/Tom. Fave scenes: the battle with the feral drifters, finding Annie and Vanessa, Jake surprising Dani at her house and the birth of the twins.

    Love this seriesWhile this was a really good book, it felt like an in between book. It's setting up for something else. A lot happened in this book, but not much action compared to the others. Web it ended I was like 'what?' I really like where things are going, but a filler book isn't going to get 5 stars from me. I hope a lot people read it. The authors write well and I am definitely left wanting more. I do have some confusion about abilities that were revealed in out of the ashes. And also about Jason and Zoe's mom. It seems like everyone is asking the wrong questions, and I kind want to strangle them. I feel terrible for Bigg's and his blaming Zoe when there was really no other option. I don't want anyone else to die though. And there has been so many. I love these characters. I cried with the part about Sarah. There are just so much feels in this book. There is no way I can rate it under 4 stars.

    The girls are coming across as much more their age. (view spoiler)[ It does bug me tho that there are so many extras around, but they only get put in the story at convenient times. Becca vanishes until she has something to say for example. She's still part of the story, but is forgotten for easy of writing. And when the twins need looking after, there are like 20 people or more in the group aren't there... But pretty much one is left to deal with it. And Annie comes across as an after thought for the majority of the time. Same a Travis and Sam. And there are a few little continuity hiccups thru it, like Becca being really sick, but suddenly she's at the end of the driveway and no one noticed she was gone. I'm sure it will be explained in bk4, but there was no thread to that happening. (hide spoiler)]

    Great Series!I could not put these books down. The storyline reminded me a bit of The Walking Dead series, minus the zombies. It had several twists and a few I didn't expect. It kept me on my toes and always wanting more. Some ppl complained about the sex within the books....really people??? These books are far from 50 shades and the minimal sex scenes weren't even graphic. And we are all human. Even in the worst of times, our desires and needs don't ever go away. So when the ppl in these books had a day or two to actually be human and enjoy what they could from life, why not enjoy that deeply rooted desire? They even have sex in the Walking Dead series, and there's dead zombies walk in around there. Get over yourselves.These books were great and can't wait till the next comes out. August can't come soon enough!

    I'm not as happy with this installment. It took well over 100 pages of wandering through the desert, woods, etc to find an action scene when the first two in this series were riddled with them. Whereas the first two in the series blended the two authors writing styles, evidence of two different authors writing this was as blatant as a fingerprinted crime scene. There were seams, wrinkles, and gaps left uncovered. The climax, if one could really call it that, was foreshadowed so obviously and ended so abruptly, that I didn't feel any satisfaction at all. I will finish the series, because despite this not so hot review, I have come to like these characters and would like to see this thing through.
