I am THRILLED to be a part of today's cover reveal for the highly anticipated third and final book of the Ashfall trilogy: Sunrise by Mike Mullin. I have loved this series ever since reading an advance copy of book one, Ashfall. My students love the books as well. We've had the privilege of hosting the author, Mike Mullin, not once but twice at our school during the past two years. My students and I refer to Mike by his first name because he is one of our friends! We have multiple copies of both books in my school library and yet, neither title is ever on the shelf. Sure, I book talked both upon release, but word of mouth from student to student continues to keep Mike's books on our weekly top ten library checkouts. The current conversation in the library is centered around how long until ARC copies of Sunrise are released and who will get to read our treasured ARC first. (ME,of course!)
Sunrise will be available April 15, 2014...or possibly earlier! (yes, I'm holding my breath and crossing my fingers for earlier!)
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.
