Exploring Dystopian Stories

One day at lunch I needed a book to read and picked up Shards and Ashes. It is a short story collection of dystopian stories. The first story was so amazing I pushed my break until the last possible second before I went back to work!

Shards and Ashes is by Melissa Marr, Kelley Armstrong and seven other authors. These nine stories take us on journeys to what it means to be human: especially when the old rules and definitions have been tossed aside. How do you find the light amongst the darkness? The questions are as numerous as the answers given.

These all too possible worlds were created by humans, ecological events or other outside forces. Each deals with such issues as when is a good time for revolution, what would you do for love, how far would you go for freedom, what is faith and more. Each story is told by one of today’s fantastic authors in strong voices and amazing language.

Right, wrong and something in between are explored by Melissa Marr, Kelley Armstrong, Veronica Roth, Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl, Rachel Caine, Carrie Ryan, Nancy Holder, and Beth Revis. And if you like what you read, you can find other books by each of these authors on the shelves of the Northshire Bookstore.
