Publisher's summary

Darla Edmunds has faced a lot of challenges in her 17 years: her dad died in a farming accident when she was 14, and her mother retreated into hyper-religiosity, leaving Darla to run the family farm almost single-handedly. But those struggles pale in comparison to the one she faces after the Yellowstone super-volcano erupts, plummeting the world - and Darla's small corner of Iowa - into a cataclysmic natural disaster.

Darla's Story is book 0.5 of the Ashfall trilogy (or should it be called a three-and-a-half-ology?) It's told from Darla's perspective, beginning with the eruption and ending when an injured stranger keels over in her barn. If you're new to the world of Ashfall, Darla's Story is a great place to start. Enjoy!

Loved seeing Darla's story.

I'm a big fan of the Ashfall series and had already read this when it first came out but I decided to try the audio and see. Well I loved it!! Sarah Chevalier did a great job with Darla. She really captured her spirit and drive. I thoroughly enjoyed her performance.

The story is from Darla's POV from the eruption till when she meets Alex. Now there isn't anything new in this that we didn't already know from the first book but I loved seeing it actually from Darla's POV and not just told by her. You truly get a sense of how tough and resilient she is and it just makes me love her character more.

If you're new to the Ashfall series, I urge you to read it. Mike Mullin is a very talented author and the series as a whole is phenomenal. If you're unsure then start with Ashfall and then read this, you won't be sorry!!

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
