I don’t like to see women that are only as important as what they have between their legs, but the book does a good job of condemning it and showing how wrong that is. When a small flenser gang—cannibals—attack the farm, they drop the shotgun that Alex’s uncle gave Alex’s parents before they ventured into Illinois looking for their son.

We appreciate your feedback.

It wasn’t as good as book 1, but it had a plot in its own right, and it completely justified its existence. Oh, and some romance. Something that I wish more male authors would do, but especially female authors. Absence made the heart grow fonder despite my worry to the ashem. Being nobler than his circumstances would usually allow? Thankfully, it managed to subvert my expectations. For me, however the devil was the details.


We’ve all been down that disappointing road, right? Better than the first! Ashen Winter maintained authenticity despite the crazy and at times incredibly creepy things that occurred.

The things that are essential make perfect sense, but I would have never thought of them. In fact, the only problem I have with it is that there is one point that it becomes a bit repetitive, though I even enjoyed those bits.

Anyone that likes post-apocalyptic novels, or anyone just looking for a really good story should definitely give this novel a try. Open Preview See a Problem?

I missed the character driven scenes that balanced out the plausible action in Ashfall. If you read the previous book and know how it ended, you wouldn’t be surprised that in this one Alex and Darla go back to Iowa to look for his parents. My Son, the Afterbirth by Craig Stewart. Those little fuckers are harder to get rid of than stray cats.

Return to Book Page. Alex and Darla decide to leave the relative safety of his Uncle Paul’s farm in Illinois when they kill some bandits mke find Alex’s father’s rifle on one of the bodies. What I liked best about Ashen Winter though, was the fact that Mullin really took human nature into account.

I mean every-single chapter. Like I previously mime in my Ashfall review there’s a delicate balance of luck and karma.

It made me feel like I was reading a middle school chapter book or a “choose your own adventure” type deal for the kiddies. Yes, evidently if when bad people get hungry, they’ll eat anyone.
