That was exhausting I am tired annoyed frustrated and hugely disappointed Writing a review for this one is gonna hurt My problems with this second installment of Mike Mullin s Ashfall series are many I m afraid to say and too big to ignore I really like this guy and I wanted this novel to be great in the shadow of its awesome predecessor Not Even Close Without any spoilers for Ashfall or Ashen Winter here is some of what s caused my sadness and frustration Anyone who knows me even a little knows I m a Stephen King fangirl I love the man okay Not in a creepy Annie Wilkes I want to chain him to a bed as my pet sort of love but his books are like meth to me I m hooked I gotta have em But that doesn t mean I can t put my critics hat on when need be too I don t slaver and drool over everything the man writes And contrary to popular critical opinion I have no interest in reading the man s grocery list Which brings me to one of my recent King disappointments it does happen Under the Dome for me was good but far from great And here s why I bring it up now because it s the same effing problem I have with Ashen Winter Under the Dome starts with a bangand maintains its narrative momentum throughout It hurtles along at an almost break neck speed but for a book that s over a 1000 pages such a pace begins to wear in places It becomes an at times uncomfortable frenetic pattern of and then this happened and then this happened and then this happened Ditto Ashen Winter It too starts with a bang and hurtles along at lightening speed for in my opinion a bloated 600 pages The action seuences are too many to count and exhaustively and excruciatingly described As with Mira Grant s book Feed I fear Mike Mullin has fallen in love with his research and wants to include every single thing he has learned What s worse no detail is too small In my review for Feed I write that I respect any author who goes the extra mile to do the research and get the details right but sweet holy Moses there is no need to put EVERYTHING YOU VE EVER LEARNED into the story I didn t think it would be possible but that s even doubly true here Another thing that annoyed me and took me out of the story too many times to count are the cliffhangers which come at the end of almost Every Single Chapter It s cheesy It made me feel like I was reading a middle school chapter book or a choose your own adventure type deal for the kiddies This is such a sharp departure from Ashfall I really don t know what to make of it Ashen Winter may feature cannibals and sex slaves but it still felt ultimately childish to me Now I am woman enough to admit this could be my fault than the book s fault I am NOT a fan of action movies I barely if ever go to the movies over the summer because the gigantic exploding frantic mostly special effects all style no substance blockbusters just don t do it for me I m likely to walk out with a headache and a scowl on my face than jittering with excitement and awe That s what happened here with this book Mullin can write action no doubt of that but there s just TOO MUCH action and not enough dialogue or genuine suspense Suspense ONLY works if it is paired with tension and release Nobody understood that better than Hitchcock If it s ALL release a go go go fast and furious approach then you really miss the tension that vital inexorable build that is so critical to creating suspense Okay last criticism Because this book is chock full of action Alex and Darla Alex especially this time are running around behaving like movie action superheroes jumping leaping dodging bullets getting shot breaking in breaking out at one point hanging on to the bottom of a MOVING TRUCK Robert DeNiro style la Cape Fear Really C mon As each disaster and run of bad luck kept piling up fodder for the chapter cliffhangers I began to think it should have been subtitled a series of unfortunate events In my review for A Breath of Snow and Ashes I write how many times can any handful of people escape from prison mob scenes near death kidnappings etc etc I can suspend disbelief with the best of them trust me but even this was too much for me I m afraid Okay so that s the ugly truth of the bad news The good news Mullin is a very talented writer and despite my disappointment here I will continue to seek out his books The other good news While I m not recommending Ashen Winter I will continue to highly recommend Ashfall it is awesome and succeeds in every way where its seuel does not Three Railway Engines your own adventure type deal for the kiddies This is

Ashfall one of my favourite books of all time could not have had a better seuel in Ashen Winter Picking up 6 months after Ashfall s ending we are thrown into a deep desolation the dark cold aftermath of a Supervolcano eruptionAlex and Darla the fabulous couple who met in Ashfall are leaving the routine and relative safety of the farm to go find Alex s parents What we have here friends is a non stop and I mean zero freaking breaks action packed thrill ride that will leave you so exhausted with excitement that you might literally just find yourself breathless Every single page of this novel is filled with intense suspense Not the type of suspense that leaves characters as little than words on a page this series is suspenseful and will make your heart literally backflip because of its characters You care about them you want them to live and find their loved ones Darla and Alex are the perfect team who are both amazingly competent and determined Their strength makes me feel incompetent The emotional investment in these people is so poignant that I found myself mimicking their state of minds Their pain was my pain their fatigue was my own I honestly felt their unrelenting weariness from being thrown into their shoes while reading this novel A Supervolcano eruption is no unrealistic event Sure if it even erupts at all it probably wouldn t happen for decades or maybe it will Ultimately mother nature does as she pleases The aftermath of such a disaster that has been created in this book and it s predecessor is unlike anything I ve ever read Sure we have dystopians and zombie novels but nothing makes a story compelling than one that could happen at any moment One that makes you truly fear the possibility of this world invading our reality Mullin doesn t sugar coat it either It s gory it s raw it s violent to no end it made me suirm and grimace Ashen Winter is not for the faint of heart Blood will be the least of your worries It s the end of the world ladies and gentleman get ready for it What this unhindered reality gives us is an in depth realistic look into humanity Some people after a disaster to such degree after having seen their friends and families die without being able to do a thing about it after living with a hunger so deep that it affects your mind will become nothing than savages Cannibals It definitely makes you think on what people will do to survive In a world where everyone is struggling to see the next day the worst side of human kind will show its face And it s not pretty people It sickens me and the worst part I completely believe it This series is one you simply Can Not Miss It s completely unbelievable fantastic Even the author s notes left me a little unsettled The only thing missing is a number for a much needed psychologist Bravo Mike Mullin you are a genius at life An advance copy was provided by the publisher for reviewFor of my reviews visit my blog at Xpresso Reads
