"Ashen Winter" by Mike Mullin a second in a series..... was a very good read. If you are into action, terror and death then you are right in it from page one. This hero (Alex)definitely a superhero that went through hell and back!.... and heroine (Darla) were a real team that loved each other (who weren't married.....then they are separated(not by choice)....and will they find each other before it is too late? Now, to truly understand this you will have to pick up the wonderful long read to find out how Mr. Mullin's brings this presentation out to the reader. This novel was a rollercoaster ride. The story is of Alex trying to find his parents after the eruption of a supervalcano...and things go "horribly wrong and Alex goes is now in a fight for his life and the lives of others. This story with its' many plots take off...full of so much detail...packed with a lots of bloody and horrible events. Be ready for "Cannibalism, rape, imprisonment, serious injury, frostbite, illness and even death." WoW! I know this is supposed to be for the YA but ....OK...... for there will be even some romancing. Be prepared for a lots of twist and turns...that will display the wrost in some people. This is definitely a read to check out.
