Ashfall Book Review
Ashfall, a debut book of Ashfall series by Mike Mullin, is a realistic, dystopian, post-apocalyptic thriller. Author has created a storyline full of highs and lows with mature downtime rooted in the everyday difficulties of physical and emotional survival. It’s the mix of action, science, thrills, romance, and the nitty-gritty details that make this book so gripping and good.
Published by Tanglewood Press and released on October 11th 2011, I recommend this book to 14+ because of mature content. If you are The Hunger Games fans or love dystopian novel, Ashfall is a must read!

2. Ashen Winter (October 2012)
Under the bubbling hot springs and geysers of Yellowstone National Park is a supervolcano. Most people don’t know it’s there. The caldera is so large that it can only be seen from a plane or satellite. It just could be overdue for an eruption, which would change the landscape and climate of our planet.
Ashfall is the story of Alex, a teenage boy left alone for the weekend while his parents visit relatives. When the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts unexpectedly, Alex is determined to reach his parents. He must travel over a hundred miles in a landscape transformed by a foot of ash and the destruction of every modern convenience that he has ever known, and through a new world in which disaster has brought out both the best and worst in people desperate for food, water, and warmth. With a combination of nonstop action, a little romance, and very real science, this is a story that is difficult to stop reading and even more difficult to forget.
