- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2014 May #2
Eleven months after a supervolcanic eruption, 16-year-old Alex finds himself mayor of a newly formed town called Speranta. Despite his age and the fact that he is dealing with shrinking food supplies and a never-ending winter, Alex must establish himself as a leader. There are graphic moments in this conclusion to the Ashfall trilogy, though fewer than in the previous entries, as Mullin's characters shift to the process of establishing and maintaining a civilization. Egocentric adult politicians, a sadistic guerrilla leader in a nearby town, and some spiffy strategies for creating power and safe places to live (STEM alert!) round out the believable state building. Although there are some losses, Alex and Darla's romanceâas well as the fate of most of those they loveâwraps up in a very satisfying conclusion. This involving narrative would be enriched by reading Ashfall (2011) and Ashen Winter (2012) first, but it can be enjoyed on its own. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
Mike Mullin first discovered he could make money writing in sixth grade. His teacher, Mrs. Brannon, occasionally paid students for using unusual words. Mike's first sale as a writer earned 10 cents for one word: tenacious. Since then, Mike has always been involved with literature. One of his early jobs was shelving books at Central Library in Indianapolis. Later, he paid his way through graduate school in part by serving as a reference assistant for Indiana University's library. Mike has worked in his mother's business, Kids Ink Children's Bookstore, for more than twenty years, serving at various times as a store manager, buyer, school and library salesperson, and marketing consultant. Mike wrote his first novel in elementary school'Captain Poopy's Sewer Adventures. He's been writing more or less non-stop ever since.
