Alex immediately decides that the time has finally come to leave the farm to search out his parents. Why are you still nice to someone who tried to kill your freakin’ family? I didn’t like this mjllin as much as I liked the first one but there was a semi-cliffhanger at the end of this one that leaves me wanting to know what will happen to these knuckle-heads next.

We usually have the Alpha male saving and teaching the useless female lead. Jun 06, Giselle rated it it was amazing Shelves: Obstacle after obstacle, danger after danger – it never ends! He was brave, but he still thought like a teenager, for the most part. View all 11 comments.

Although, I did quite enjoy Ashfall, Ashen Winter is a better book. If you read the previous book and know how it ended, you wouldn’t be surprised that in this one Alex and Darla go back to Iowa to look for his parents. The action sequences are too wimter to countand exhaustively and excruciatingly described.

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. But it was the same in the first book and I wanted to see them in fact Alex grow to have better skills in this art of survival. Sure we have dystopians and zombie novels, but nothing makes a story more compelling than one that could happen at any moment.

And contrary to popular critical opinion, I have no interest in reading the man’s grocery list. When the unthinkable happens, Alex must find new reserves wjnter strength and determination to survive.

I love Darlex Hehe, that’s so Dr. I don’t go all fangirl often but fangirl I did for Ashen Winter. Unfortunately, Alex’s parents weren’t my favorite people; I could understand their worries, because this is their kid, but he’s survived on his wnter for nearly a year. As with the first one, this felt very realistic. That brings me to my ONLY complaint about this book.

Suddenly it’s a race against time to It is a bleak world nullin people taking extraordinary and often disgusting measures in order to survive. Or possibly you’re just being stubborn. Alex and Darla are wonderfully inspiring characters. Ripping away childhoods and replacing them with the cold, dark and horrifying reality.


She’s the one with an amazing mechanical ability.


She loses her mom in a horrible way in the first book, but after a day of being a little out of it, she keeps going. It’s packed with fast-paced action and obstacles to overcome. I saw some of those bad things coming, they were inevitable.

Plus, she was just doing what she thought was right to remain alive near one of the only good guys she met. Will this ever be made as an Audiobook? Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

Even Katniss looks asheh in comparison to her. He’s a great hero. Plus, you’re already invested in the characters. You worry about them, you cheer them on, and sometimes you want to slap the shit out of them.

Now I realize everything in fiction doesn’t have to be based on reality but I never felt that way with Ashfall. Jul 02, Barbara VampAngel rated it it was amazing Shelves: It’s total chaos, and mullun any real form of government, it’s each man or woman for themselves.
