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.

Oh, the sweet agony! Ashfall is one seriously awesome book. I only recently read it so everything is still fresh in my mind. After reading the synopsis for Ashen Winter I'm absolutely terrified that something fatal will befall Darla. Darla is a veritable tornado of brains, bravery, and love for Alex. Together Darla and Alex are capable of overcoming anything, without her I will be devastated. Whatever the fate of Darla, and all the rest, I cannot control the anticipation, it is eating me up.

Oh my gosh I was thinking that too! If something happens to Darla -explodes into agony-. Please don't rip our hearts to shred Mr. Mullin, please don't.
