Summary

Though the skies were starting to clear, the world had never been darker.

Three years after moving to Northfield, Clay, his family, and his closest allies struggle to survive in the increasingly unforgiving world. With torrential downpours encompassing most of the warmer months and brutal winters dominating the rest, the group is forced to take life-threatening risks far too often just to make ends meet.

After a ruthless few months, the group is offered an invitation to attend a week-long festival at the allied trading post, Liberty Township. With food, games, and some much-needed time with his family, Clay savors every minute of their respite from the normal hardships of survival....

Until the town is savagely ambushed.

The attackers give the town an ultimatum: leave or be slaughtered. Unwilling to walk away from his friends in their time of need, Clay and a few others from the Northfield group volunteer to join the militia and fight for Liberty.

The war, compounded by the relentless demands of everyday life in the "new" world, pushes Clay to the brink of destruction. Not only must he fight the assault on Liberty, but he must battle the demons from within.

Get ready for a thrilling ride in this intense, action-packed sequel to the dystopian novel, As the Ash Fell.

Good read and would recommend

I like that the characters are consistent and you do become very attached to them. The plot is a little predictable in this book but the action is great and continues throughout. The only let down for the whole series is that the book is called AS THE ASH FELL yet at no point is any ash falling. it seems it has fallen and we missed it. There is no explanation or journey through the time the ash fell which is very misleading. it like buying baked beams because the tin said baked beans and then finding you got peas. I bought this book as I expect3d it to be about an atom bomb detonation and the fall out adventure afterwards or something like that. Instead it's set in the future after the fact so the whole adventure I looked forward to reading didn't happen. in addiction to this the voice over sounds like he has a shitty nose through out which made me squirm as well as making all the characters sound like that had stuffy noses.

Amazing story!

The characters in this story experience the right amount of real dread with just a touch of unrealistic good luck to make the story interesting and Worth reading. It's a great sequel to The first book. Looking forward to the next book!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Dark and Powerful 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Yes, this book has numerous dark parts, maybe darker than the first book, but Powers is a fantastic storyteller and has a way of getting this story out that leaves plenty of hope and positivity during such a rough, tragic time for these characters. I keep wanting the sun to come out and heal the earth and for them all to live happily ever after, but the story stays true to the trials and tribulations of a post-apocalyptic world.

Can't leave Aaron Cleveland out. He takes this story and gives it more than just a voice, he adds to the very soul of the story. I can't imagine these characters without his voice narrating.
