Waiting on Wednesday *66*

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where book bloggers get together & spotlight an upcoming release we're especially looking forward to!

Here's my pick this week:

Sunrise by Mike Mullin
Ashfall #3
Expected Publication: April 15th 2014 by Tanglewood Press

 
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.
So, I'm kind of cheating here - since I still need to read book #2 in the series Ashen Winter...BUT I am planning on reading it very soon and since I got approved for this one, I couldn't resist featuring it :D  I was truly blown away by the first book and honestly I can not take not knowing what's going to happen next for Alex & Darla; not to mention how their story will end!

Thoughts? Have you read any of the books in this series?
Don't forget to link me up to your post!

  1. I haven't read any of this series at all, but just in case I do I skipped the description of it. This is one I'll wait to see if I read it, for when all the books are out. So will be looking for your reviews on all of them!

I LOVE comments & do my best to return every one a.s.a.p. ♥
This blog is an award-free zone. I appreciate the thought but I can't invest the time needed.
