Overview

Escape from the Ashes (Ashes Series #35) by William W. Johnstone

Under the command of Ben Raines, the Southern United States of America rose up and crushed a corrupt federal government--and then beat back enemy assaults from all corners of the world. But while some leaders surround themselves with lackeys and bodyguards, Raines lives the way he always has. And so, when his small plane crashes in Canada's Northwest Territory, Raines is on his own, with the advantage of a survivalist's skills and a couple of disadvantages, including the fact that he doesn't remember his name. Raines had come to Canada on a hunt for a vicious terrorist organization. Now, they have found him. Without a memory, without an ally, and without a gun, he must fight off the men who shot down his plane--and then face the army behind them. On his own private ground zero, Ben Raines is going to learn fast: that only way out is to make his enemies die first?

This whole series of the Ashes was great.

This is the end due to at the time Bill was very sick with cancer and I guess they had to end it. Bill was Ben and with out one the other had to die. I understand why some of you are mad but at least the ended it and had someone write it like they did the last 4 books. If you look at the style and flow of the last 4 you can tell it was taken over. All I can say is Bye Bill and thanks for Ben, Smoke, Jamie and Preacher.

As I finished this last book in the series, I was kind of confused. How could there be a Space Virus. But after picking up The Last Rebel, I came to find out that was just a rumor, and it was actually a form of the plauge. I hope some characters from the Ashes series make a comback in The Last Rebel. I hate to see Ben go, but he had been through alot and maybe Johnstone wanted to bring another hero into the War torn world to put the SUSA back together

The book started off as exciting as all the 'ashes' books, but ended too fast. Ben should not have left us that way. I guess Mr. Johnstone had to prove that Ben was not immortal after all. I look forward to The Last Rebel, I need another hero.

What the heck happened? After years of devotion and loyalty I was stunned to read the end of this book and realize...it's all over! How could Johnstone repay our loyalty this way? If he was tired of creating Ben, at least leave us with an ending we could understand. Space Virus? Come on, Johnstone, you're better than that....or at least you used to be. Thanks for the memories...but not for the heartache. I was sick, stuned and unbelieving when I read the ending. I'm still in shock. I've lost a part of me and I can't put it to rest because there is no resolution that is acceptable. I have to be honest and say that in the last issues, I've often thought that the writing wasn't the same as the first of the series, not the depth of character, or developement of personal relationships that came at first. So he's tired of the series, OK, quit, but at least give us something to end with. We have a lot of years invested in all the characters of this series, not just Ben, and I think we deserved to have more of an ending than we got. I don't honestly know if I'll be buying The Last Rebel, the idea leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

I have read many book series by different authors - mystery, westerns, and espionage - they are all one and the same. When the 'Ashes' series came out, it was different and unique. Mr. Johnstone kept you on edge in anticipation of the next book. Ben Raines was a figure you could relate to. However, 'Escape in the Ashes' is a complete travesty, and unworthy to be included in the series. The plot is a mish-mash of mini stories that barely have a relation to one and another. To kill off the main players by a space virus was totally out of character. Many questions were left unanwsered. There was no mention of Ike, Cecil, or Dan whatsoever. I catagorize this book as something that an elementary school student would write about. One would better be served by not buying this book and letting your imagination bestow a fitting end for Ben Raines. With one book, the author destroyed the entire series

I was disappointed with the final book of the Ashes series. I feel that Mr. Johnstone could of ended it better. there are alot of questions that still need answers. Oh well, whats done is done. It was a sad way for a character like Ben raines to go.

I about broke down in tears when reading the end of this book. After 20 or so years following Ben Raines and his special Team of freedom fighters, this was not a great ending. Perhaps Mr Johnstone is worn out keeping so many series going, he ran out of ideas.

I was rather disappointed in this book. I've always enjoyed the series since it first came out until this. It seems like Mr. Johnstone was just tired of this and wanted to end it. I would have enjoyed a more well-developed end to what has been (in my humble opinion) an excellent series of books. Unfortunately, it also left some nagging questions from the series. What about the Prophet from the early books? What was his purpose? There was no transition from the end of the USA (destruction of the coup instigators) to the end of the SUSA, other than the quick mention of the virus from space. Was it caused by the aliens from the previous book or a natural (?) disaster? The whole transition took place in a matter of a chapter, with gaping holes. Hope the new series next year maintains some balance.
