Title: Sunrise
   Author: Mike Mullin
   Release Date: April 15th, 2015

     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.

My Stance:

     So the conclusion to the series has made my radar. The main reason I haven't picked it up yet is I have been looking for a signed copy of the book. I have the first two signed, and just need the last one, so I've been hopeful to come across one. This is one of those novels that frankly keeps me dreaming, I love and have always adored volcanoes. I will admit, they are devastating and I feel for anyone who has lost someone or their home because of one, but the power they generate is just awe inspiring. Than we are sitting on one of the largest hot spots in the world, yellowstone. To me it make sense that sometime, in the future, that Yellowstone may pose a threat to everyone. However, this book takes place afterwards.

     Afterwards, is far different, is a case of trying to rebuild there is something that pulls me to the book. Most books wouldn't try to take on the whole big government aspect, yet this book seems to dive headfirst into it. I want to see how the group rebuilds, I want to see their idea and what they plan on doing. It's intriguing to see the changes, the rebuild, and how they manage to try to keep themselves together. As well the cannibals and the other harsh realities of their world, I want to know how they managed to deal with those in addition to everything else. Sunrise is one of those books that has so much potential and while it's not perfect, there's something in it that makes it someones favorite or the best book at the moment.
