Where is the sequal for this book? My school library had it but i can't exactly get it from there because of summer break. I say we get the sequel. It is called Ashen Winter if you were wondering.

When the supervolcano underneath Yellowstone explodes, Alex's only concern is surviving long enough to find his parents and sister a hundred miles away.

Moonlightmortal is absolutely wrong!!!! I love this book! But there did need to be a bit more action, then it would have been even better!!!

I'll be completely honest with you: this book was absolute trash. I didn't even finish it. It was unnecessarily gory, there was so much profanity that I could barely make it through, and there were some things I don't even want to talk about. Aside from those things, the only redeeming quality is that the idea is sort of intriguing. Other than that, the writing is terrible. The characters are wooden and I felt no connection to them whatsoever. If you're thinking about reading this, don't. It's awful.

I love books that deal with survival, and I fully expected to like and be entertained by Ashfall, I am however, somewhat surprised at how much I loved it. This is a book that deserves to be found by a wider audience as it is an exciting, well written story that is a true page turner. I highly recommend Ashfall to those who enjoy dystopian, apocalyptic stories.

Loved this story of survival. If you enjoyed Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer this will be a great book for you.

Sexual Content: There were so many inappropriate things in here that I can't even begin to stress how horrible it is. If this were a book meant for adults, it would still be awful.

Violence: Gory, disgusting violence that makes you uncomfortable.

Coarse Language: There were at least three swear words on every other page.
