Ashen Winter

Ashen Winter - Mike Mullin

Really good sequel, one that keeps the pace of the first book. But I think I could have given it a solid 5 stars if there weren't so many things happening in this book. It seemed like it was one thing after another. Like a fish jumping out of the frying pan into the fire kinda way.
I think the constant bad things happening was a little too much. It would have been nice to have a section in the book where everything slowed down for just a little bit. Maybe to let the readers catch their breath.
There are two new characters Alyssa & Ben , and I'm not sure how I really feel about this. I don't think there needed to be more characters to like, but I see

Alex did need some help and well it takes two people to take Darla's place.

(show spoiler)

I can't wait to see where the third book takes us.
