Salvation is a world away.
Trapped in a city no one knows exists, Squid lies dying as Nim fights for their lives. With every minute, their hope of getting the vaccine back to civilization is fading. From the brink of death and the edge of the world, Squid must once again conquer dangers even more sinister than the undead - the future of humankind depends on it.
But Squid's efforts will be wasted if Lynn cannot keep the people of Alice safe until he returns, and Lynn is now a hostage of the Holy Order. Forced to face punishment at the hands of the High Priestess, Lynn is at the mercy of the mad cult, as beyond the wall the undead horde continues its relentless approach.
Caught between madness and mindlessness, the odds are stacked against Squid and Lynn. Will they triumph or do they already walk in a world of ash?
The thrilling conclusion to this zombie apocalypse series is perfect for fans of James Dashner's Maze Runner series and Michael Grant's Gone series.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We love Justin Woolley’s series The Territory, an entertaining cross between A Game of Thrones and Mad Max, with shades of The Walking Dead. Like A Town Called Dust and A City Called Smoke, the last book in the Australian author’s dystopian YA trilogy is superbly written, with non-stop action. His teenage protagonists go through the wringer as they scramble to protect the last bastions of civilisation and humanity from ghouls, pirates and ever graver threats. A World of Ash is a great read, full stop. But if you haven’t read Woolley before, we’d highly recommend reading the complete cycle—and prolonging the fun.
