A long time ago, I received Kingdom of Ashes from Elena May. I say that, because I honestly should have posted this review a decade ago and now I’m feeling kinda guilty about it. Sorry Elena!
I also thought that some of the choices that they made as a survival group were a little bit stupid. Myra is a writer. Her friends know that, her family knows that and the readers know that. It’s been heavily emphasised from the moment that we met her. So to have her go on a life or death kind of mission seems a little bit counterproductive. Literally anyone else would have been better. She has no training, no experience in the outside world and there is no reason that anyone would think that she would actually succeed. I mean, I get the whole giving people a chance thing – but when the lives of everyone else are at stake? Nah.
