Review: The Ashes That Remain by A.M. Griffin

Publication Date: August 5, 2014
Series and book number: Cimmerian Moon #2
Rating: 5 stars

Official Blurb:

We’re at war against the aliens that have invaded Earth, fighting the only way we can—by surviving. I have more than most people do, but although I know it’s stupid to hold on, I can’t let go of what might have been—can’t help dreaming of something more. No matter how I tell myself it would be easier to do what everyone else wants me to, there’s a part of me that can’t give in. 
Making the best of the situation is one thing. Settling, even to make other people happy, is something else. 

Then we hear the alien mother ships have disappeared. Of course we have to go and investigate. What we find lands us in a huge mess that we somehow have to clean up and, as our little enclave is rocked to the core with even more changes, I’m learning a hard lesson. 

The more things change—for the better or the worse—there’s no fighting human nature, and building on the ashes that remain will take everything we have. And maybe more.

This book was amazing! If it was possible to give more than 5 stars I would. I loved this book, maybe even more than the first. I felt I was right there with all the characters, surviving the alien invasion with them. In this book, we learn more about the underground sanctuary the group found at the end of book 1. We get more action as well in this one. I liked the fact that the surviving humans are starting to fight back. We kind of get a idea of why the aliens are here to take over the planet, and I hope(fingers crossed) that the humans fight back enough to make them want to leave. Sin is still one of my favorite characters and I love love love, that she’s finally worked through her emotions about Jason. I will admit I was a little afraid in a few parts of this one that someone wouldn’t make it back. I wont tell you, so buy this book and see for yourself! We get to see new characters as well and one I’m not liking, but I think things will work out and this person will be a great asset to the team. Sorry guys, not telling anything about that! I am looking forward to reading book 3. I would recommend anyone looking for a great read to pick up this amazing series.
