Sunrise by Mike Mullin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It has been nearly a year since the Yellowstone supervolcano erupted and sent North America into a harsh winter and chaos. Towns and groups are attacking each other and the government is not willing or able to assist. Alex and Darla have come to the realization that their home is not safe and the adults are not willing to step up and do what is necessary. Can they do what it takes to survive? What lines are they unwilling to cross?
Sunrise is the final book in the Ashfall series. Those of us who have waited over a year and half for this final book will quickly discover that the wait was worth it. Mullin doesn’t spend any time coddling readers with background and memory jogging. He plunges quickly into the next era of this adventure and sweeps the reader along for the ride. As Alex and Darla face new and harrowing trials, the reader will quickly realize how unprepared the average person would be to survive an apocalypse of this magnitude. I know I would not be an Alex or a Darla, but I hope if I am ever faced with a life surviving situation like this, I can find people like them and join their team.
