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 trilogy. 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.

"We all know that it's not easy for the second book in a series to live up to the first one, especially if the first one was as fantastic as ASHFALL. Luckily, ASHEN WINTER did not disappoint...Harrowing, gripping, and full of tension, Mike Mullin's second book is one of the post-apocalyptic books I would recommend to everyone."—Tynga's Reviews
