Ashfall by Mike Mullin review-annmarie

Ashfall by Mike Mullin
Ashfall tells the story of Alex how is left at home for the weekend when his family goes off to visit relatives. Alex’s happiness is short lived when the Yellowstone volcano erupts and all Alex can think about is getting to his family. Traveling to his family will be the hardest journey of his life. This new world of ash turns out to be a living hell where people will do anything to survive. 

This book gave me chills from the first chapter to the last. The story which within two chapters went straight into the action I felt like Alex’s town and the others around it had been dropped into the mouth of hell. I was at the edge of my seat watching Alex’s journey unfold. This whole book put me on an emotional rollercoaster ride. 

Alex is faced with challenge after challenge which left me wondering how much more can this poor boy can take. The people around him are going to horrifying lengths to keep themselves alive. Alex see’s and experiences things that would make a full grown man cry, scream and just plain give up.. 
I would recommend this book to others it’s an amazing book with lots going on. While this book at times can be dark and scary there is also lots of fun and some of the things Alex thinks and feels made me laugh. It was a mixed book which has so much to give action, love, horror, and so much more. 

A breath taking story that will keep you up at night.
5 stars.

Last words- This book was brilliant no review could sum up the true depth of this book. 
Go and buy the book and see your self this is one of the best-est books i have ever read! 


Over the next few days ill be going Ashfall crazy and i hope by the end you will want to BUY this book it's brilliant!! 


  1. Great review. This looks good. And yes I will be getting it.

  2. Interesting premise shared in a suspenseful novel. Eruption of Yellowstone and its potential impact on North America weaves an interesting story line for Young Adults. It does feature some mature themes but holds your attention and interest.
