Today is my stop for Mike Mullin’s Sunrise Blog Tour hosted by Books With Bite. If you’re new here, then let me tell you how much I do love this series. It’s very realistic and a future like this is very very scary.
For this stop, you will be reading my review of Ashfall’s finale “Sunrise”. If you wish to read my reviews for Ashfall, Ashen Winter, and Darla’s Story, click here. After reading my review, join the giveaway! It is international, y’all!Sunrise by Mike Mullin

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.
