So, when Alyssa view spoiler [ tries to entice and seduce Alex, it didn’t bother me. In my review for Feed I write that: I like that this one held up the uglier side of both people and humanity at it’s worse, but it also left Alex with hope – that they could make something better. It’s really tiring to read. See 2 questions about Ashen Winter…. Anyway, don’t be discouraged by the size of these books. Something or someone smacks them back down.
But the landscape they cross is even more perilous than before, with life-and-death battles for food and power between the remaining communities. I can’t put how much into words, so this will have to serve as a representation of how much I like her: The Midwestern US is under a wintsr or so of volcanic ash.

Carina’s Books: Review: Ashen Winter by Mike Mullin
Alex’s father may have been on that slippery slope when he does something that requires the suspension of compassion i. I honestly felt their unrelenting weariness from being thrown into their shoes while reading this novel.
When I say stupid, I don’t mean that in the usual YA literature way, the “I’m only capable of thinking of the hotness of my love interest and nothing else”. This series is one you simply Can.
Mullin really knew where he was going because this book was so exciting and action packed that I had my heart in my mouth for like 20 chapters straight. If this were the Hunger Games, Darla would take out everyone at the Cornucopia and be elected President of Panem before even leaving the arena.
Mullin is clearly an intelligent person, and I’m more than thankful that it comes through in the novel. He has certainly left me wanting to read the next book. Oh, that was sad.
A Supervolcano eruption is no unrealistic event. Muke post-apocalyptic book is written well with the research with such a realistic point of view that I found myself Googling volcanoes that could erupt in my spare time.
Alex and Darla decide to leave his uncle’s farm to go find his mom and dad, who left the farm in the last book to go find Alex. That something has to mikr better. For a while Mike juggled bottles at a wine shop, sometimes to disastrous effect.
Ashen Winter (Ashfall, #2) by Mike Mullin
Is there anything this chick can’t do? To keep her and her brother safe in this crazy new world, she has to use her sexuality. 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 the relationship between Alex and Darla and how much Alex wants to meet his parents again.
It’s unfortunate, because I actually liked the first book! She was stronger than she knew. They have left the safety of the farm as well to find Alex, right?
Ripping away childhoods and replacing them with the cold, dark and horrifying reality.
Alex arrived at his uncle’s farm in October, it’s now April and they’re experiencing a perpetual winter. I don’t think this is a good as Ashfall because Alex’ character is settled and he’s far away from the self-centered young man we met at the beginning of the first book.
This series has quickly become one of my most anticipated reads every year and I can guarantee that fans of Ashfall will not be disappointed by this far-from-disappointing sequel!
