Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've read most of WWJ's Ashes series in the past and recently decided to start from the beginning and read them again from book #1 "Out of the Ashes". I am a huge fan of these books and the series was excellent as it was originally written. However, starting with the book "Flames in the Ashes" the whole series goes to pot. It is as if they were written by someone else. Equipment that was never in the other books is suddenly available, the facts on how the war started change, and there's even references to Bill Clinton! Read all the "ashes" books, but stop before you get to "Flames"

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was my first and last in the "Ashes" series. I had read glowing reviews and gave this one a chance. I don't understand what the attraction is. The storyline appeals to peoples' rage regarding their perceived inequities of society. The writing is manipulative intending to have the reader overlook the sterotypical cardboard characters. There are the white hats and the black hats with no one in between. I enjoy post apocalyptic (after the Great War - apparently any time now) stories but this one is ridiculous. The good guys love freedom and the bad guys are all crazed Nazis. That's it, they're either Rebels (good guys) or Nazis, nothing in between. The Nazi men all enjoy sex with young boys and have frequent temper tantrums. The good guys live in the old United States (Canada seems to have separated itself from the continent), Mexico still appears to exist but the border between the two countries apparently still is recognized although why I can't imagine. The bad guys are combination of Nazis from South (where it is all Nazi) and North America. It seems in previous books there were zombies and other mutant enemies to blow up with delighted zeal. The Rebels must be all shell shocked since they have no compunction about blowing away 30 people each before lunch time.
If you like lots of references to different armament and how many ways they cause carnage (there's lots of that here), you'll love this book. The main characters all lead charmed lives. Bullets hit everyone else and if they ever dare to get near the heroes, body armor deflects any damage.
The main characters live to get into the non-stop battle from Kansas, to Cheyenne to Mexico where the main character is captured and facing a firing squad when the book ends.

Just when I think there could not possibly be anything else to write about, the Rebels are on another adventure. They meet new people, challenges and find a way to win. Always a colorful read. New readers Read in Series Order
Ashes Series is a must read Nov. 1 2013
By Lee R. Hubbard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After reading 20 of the Ashes Series books of Wm. Johnstone, the worst I can say is "These should be a MUST READ" for any conservative, even the most minimal conservative, out there! Science fiction,? More like a borderline prediction for the far out liberalist and/or the die hard survivalists. Even though the plot is a way out concept( consider todays news headlines), the series will make you rethink what you may consider could never happen. Do not read one unless you are willing to read them all!! William W. Johnstone's ASHES Series: Complete set of 36. The 34 sequential books plus From the Ashes: America Reborn, and The Last Rebel: Survivor
Great Series Aug. 20 2013

This is part of a great series if you like this type of reading the action never stops and there is enough twists and turns through in to keep you guessing
Great Book -Great Writer! Aug. 3 2013
By Kenneth M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I have most of the Ashes series but was missing a few. This was one of them. If any of you haven't read this series, do so. I can actually see everything Johnstone wrote about eventually coming in the near future. They are well written and filled with action. The books are becoming very scarce and there are even some not available in libraries now.
