Ashen Winter by Mike Mullin

Hardcover: 576 pages
Publication date: October 16, 2012
Publisher: Tanglewood
Add on: Goodreads

It’s been over six months since the eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano. Alex and Darla have been staying with Alex’s relatives, trying to cope with the new reality of the primitive world so vividly portrayed in Ashfall, the first book in this series. It’s also been six months of waiting for Alex’s parents to return from Iowa. Alex and Darla decide they can wait no longer and must retrace their journey into Iowa to find and bring back Alex’s parents to the tenuous safety of Illinois. But the landscape they cross is even more perilous than before, with life-and-death battles for food and power between the remaining communities. When the unthinkable happens, Alex must find new reserves of strength and determination to survive.

The first book definitely caught my attention. I wasn’t too keen on it based off the summary, but it surprised me. So I’m hoping the same trend will follow with this second book from Mullen.
