Celebrate ASHEN WINTER!

All this week we're celebrating the launch of Mike Mullin's ASHEN WINTER! This is the sequel to his debut, ASHFALL, and is just as gripping--if not moreso :)

Here's a little bit about ASHEN WINTER:

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.

ASHEN WINTER has an amazing cover that illustrates the desperation of the situation perfectly, in my opinion. And let's not forget the new matching cover for ASHFALL! Don't you just love how well those covers go together?!

I think the thing I find most fascinating about these books is the possibility of it truly happening. And I'm not the only one who thinks that. Charles Benoit, author of YOU, says:

"ASHFALL is smokin' hot. The story races like a wildfire with enough plot twists and action for two books. Mullin puts his hero through hell--and we get a front row seat. The scariest part? It could really happen."
Don't believe us? You can start reading the series right here for free!

My daughter and I both hugely enjoyed Ashfall and cannot wait to read Ashen Winter. Mike did an amazing job, both with his research/world-building and his life-like characters. I sincerely wish him great continued success! <3

Gorgeous cover art (and they say you can't judge a book by its cover...) with the promise of a story that sounds like a fantastic read. Definitely adding this to my reading list.

I adored Ashfall (I feel like I should probably be doing more to prepare for the supervolcano...) and cannot wait to read Ashen Winter!
