Only it sounded like this: That brings me to my ONLY complaint about this book. He has certainly left me wanting to read the next book.
The characters are still wonderfully flawed and well-developed, with more being added in seamlessly. Spark and Ashen Winter! She has had a difficult time, trying to stay alive and to keep her brother safe. And a new ragtag bunch has joined the Darla and Alex forces. After a false start and a disastrous run-in with their old enemies, FEMA military contractors Black Lake, mi,e story picks up with an even more catastrophic run-in with winted cannibals.
We see people struggling to make a life of what it’s left of this world, we see other people losing what is left of their humanity, but what remains the same is ahen relationship between Alex and Darla and how much Alex wants to meet his parents again. Those little fuckers are harder to get rid of than stray cats. His choices are never easy. We are reintroduced to several characters from Ashfall including Rita Mae the librarian who really cares for Alex and what happens to him as well as the commander of the Black Water refugee camp.
Ashfall and Ashen Winter asuen definitely on my top 10 young adult reads. I am very excited to hear that there will be another book in the series, as well as a novella about Darla coming soon. She’s the perfect counterbalance for Alex’s soft-hearted nature.
Alex and Darla, the fabulous couple who met in Ashfall are leaving the routine and relative safety of the farm to go find Alex’s parents. Oh, that was sad. It features a prison invasion, car chase with the hero on the roof of the car AND a snowmobile chase across a frozen Mississippi rivera slave ring, cannibalism, escape from a refugee camp, black ops mercenaries, and various rescues operations.

By far, one of the more bleak post apocalypse books I’ve read. Also, this is mature YA, so don’t go out and get it for your favorite 10 year old nephew. Mullin really thought through the details of how such a catastrophic event would transpire. When a small flenser gang—cannibals—attack the farm, they drop the shotgun that Alex’s uncle gave Alex’s parents before they ventured into Illinois looking for their son.
Smart reading when it’s cold as hell outside Alex and Darla are going looking for Alex’s parents.

I muplin like the premise of the series, and I like the characters and the survival element is top-notch. Sometimes I black out I saw some of those bad things coming, they were inevitable.
Imagine the unimaginable — the huge super volcano of Yellowstone has erupted. Crazy for Young A Aside from that, he’s too carebear for me.
In mjke, he even says so himself which cracked me up: Anyone that likes post-apocalyptic novels, or anyone just looking for a really good story should definitely give this novel a try.
It’s sad, it’s terrifying, but it’s true even on its darkest. This is the second book in a series so it may contain spoilers if you haven’t read Ashfall. I am tired, annoyed, frustrated, muke hugely disappointed. This book does make you appreciate the life that we have, and food. I told myself it was only a book but it got to me.
Lucky for me, I have kids of my own, so I was able to translate. Society, or whatever is left of it, has changed for the worse. I cried at different points in the story.
