Waiting on Wednesday: Sunrise


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Sunrise by Mike Mullin
Publication date: April 15, 2014

The Yellowstone supervolcano nearly wiped out the human race. Now, almost a year after the eruption, the survivors seem determined to finish the job. Communities wage war on each other, gangs of cannibals roam the countryside, and what little government survived the eruption has collapsed completely. The ham radio has gone silent. Sickness, cold, and starvation are the survivors’ constant companions.

When it becomes apparent that their home is no longer safe and adults are not facing the stark realities, Alex and Darla must create a community that can survive the ongoing disaster, an almost impossible task requiring even more guts and more smarts than ever — and unthinkable sacrifice. If they fail . . . they, their loved ones, and the few remaining survivors will perish.

This epic finale has the heart of Ashfall, the action of Ashen Winter, and a depth all its own, examining questions of responsibility and bravery, civilization and society, illuminated by the story of an unshakable love that transcends a post-apocalyptic world and even life itself.

I saw a cover reveal of Sunrise recently and immediately added the book to my Goodreads TBR. (I don’t love the cover though.) I loved Ashfall and Ashen Winter and I’m really looking forward to reading Sunrise. April is so far away!

  2. I loved Ashfall but still haven’t managed to finish Ashen Winter. I’m really going to have to get a move on, because the conclusion sounds amazing!

  5. I haven’t started this series yet, but it does sound good. I agree – not a huge fan of the cover – the blurb makes up for it though!
