Sunrise by Mike Mullin
Series: Ashfall #3
Publication date: April 15th, 2014

The Yellowstone supervolcano nearly wipes 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 love ones, and the few remaining survivors will perish.

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

I read, Ashfall and was absolutely blown away. I referred the book to my grandmother who also found it to be amazing (thus proving it is a series that transcends age ranges). I have not gotten to read Ashen Winter since I read Ashfall before it came out and I need to reread and refresh my memory. Mike Mullin is a post-apocalyptic god when it comes to literature of that genre. The cover is amazing stellar. It matches so well with the "ashy" looking quality of all the previous books as well. I can not WAIT to read this book (after reading the others once more). :)
