Publisher's Summary

Under the bubbling hot springs and geysers in Yellowstone National Park lies a supervolcano so large that it can be seen only from a plane or satellite. Most people don't know it's there. But it's overdue for an eruption, which would obliterate the landscape and change the climate, creating a dark, volcanic winter that could last for years.

For Alex, being left home alone for the weekend means the freedom to play his computer games and hang out with his friends without hassle from his mother. Then the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts, plunging his hometown into a nightmare of darkness, ash, and violence. Alex begins a harrowing trek to search for his family and finds help in Darla, a travel partner he meets along the way. Together they must find the strength and skills to survive and outlast an epic disaster.

    "Different"

    It was good to listen to a story wherein the survivor wasn't a "perfect prepper" and where a woman was a truly strong character. Well done!

    "Great book"

    I thought this was a very good book. Not a typical YA novel. the narrator does a good job of reading the book and with changing voices for each character. I would recommend this book to my friends.

    "Loved this book!!"

    Every time I look outside and see sunshine, I'm surprised - that's how real this book is to me. I feel like I've lived through it, and it wasn't always a pretty journey.

    My only complaint is that book two and three are not audiobooks, so if I want to finish it, I have to sit and read it. :-( I don't know why they haven't recorded the other two books but they need to ASAP!

    Captivating and fast paced. I am looking forward to reading more from this talented writer. Not my normal genre but worth the venture.

    "Good"

    I liked the premise of this story, a real super volcano and the potential impacts if it were to erupt. The story had a good flow as well. The one thing I did not appreciate was the sing song type of way the narration was done. I'm sure it's just me but that's what came to mind as I listed to the delivery and I'm not a fan of this style. The style of narration is so important to my enjoyment of the story and I think recently, that is just as important to me as the story being told. This did not really keep me from enjoying the story, it was just a minor annoyance and not nearly as bad as some others I have heard.

    "Loved it!"

    I pretty much loved everything about this book. It is YA, so a lot of the fighting and marauding that you would find in other post apocalyptic type books, is not there. I found that aspect refreshing. I'm not sure how quickly or drastically our society would succumb to gangs and violence, though I'd like to think it would be much more similar to what is in this book than in the others that I've "read" on audible. The characters have depth and development, they are realistic in the sense that they don't overcome ridiculous odds. While this book could be a series, it also stands alone and has an ending.
    As always Kirby Heyborne have a great performance. Perfect voicing for each different character, I could easily tell who was talking.
    I would recommend this book for a credit or even a purchase. I listened straight through even though I have two usher books I'm listening to, I needed a break from them (long and intense) and this one hooked me.

    Avid reader who hates it when editors or writers butcher the English language. Honest reviewer.

    "Riveting"

    The narrator did a great job capturing the voices & inflections of each character. The story was believable & agreed mostly with what I already knew about the aftermath of massive volcanic eruptions. Read it if you like global disaster stories.

    "Surprised"
    Where does Ashfall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It easily ranks in the top quarter.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ashfall?

    Reunion with family


    Have you listened to any of Kirby Heyborne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Not certain


    Any additional comments?

    Well scripted, good performance. Believable characters. Look forward to the sequels. (BTW, I am a "mature" adult and while this book is clearly aimed at a younger audience, its quality surpassed many audiobooks aimed at an older audience.

    The narrator sounds terribly robotic. Such a shame since the storyline and writing is amazing.
