The Yellowstone supervolcano nearly wiped out the human race. Now, almost a year after the eruption, the survivors seem determined to finish the job. Communities wage war on each other, gangs of cannibals roam the countryside, and what little government survived the eruption has collapsed completely. The ham radio has gone silent. Sickness, cold, and starvation are the survivors' constant companions.

When it becomes apparent that their home is no longer safe and adults are not facing the stark realities, Alex and Darla must create a community that can survive the ongoing disaster, an almost impossible task requiring even more guts and more smarts than ever--and unthinkable sacrifice. If they fail . . . they, their loved ones, and the few remaining survivors will perish.

This epic finale has the heart of Ashfall , the action of Ashen Winter , and a depth all its own, examining questions of responsibility and bravery, civilization and society, illuminated by the story of an unshakable love that transcends a post-apocalyptic world and even life itself.

What is the book Darla's story?

May 30, 2014

hmmm………I'll admit I wasn't very happy with the way the series ended, but it wasn't the worst ending to a series that I've read. *cough* I'm talking to you brodi ashton. While I was sad to have Alex and Darla's story come to an end, I was slightly relieved, though I don't know why. Now I know. Darn you Mike Mullin, trying to kill off your characters early. Thank goodness they didn't actually die. You didn't have to make them lose their….oops. that would be a spoiler. Okay, now that I have that very short rant out of my head, I am ready to continue peacefully. Maybe. The book was really long . Like 550 pages of hard-core survival. A lot of it seemed unnecessary, like they were coming up with more problems so they'd have more stuff to do. All in all, I was disappointed, but happy at the same time and i'll admit i have no idea how to rate this book.
