  • Sunrise - Mike Mullin cover


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 and gangs of cannibals roam the countryside. 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.


"Sunrise follows in Mr. Mullin's tradition of great Young Adult writing. It is a seamless continuation and fitting end to the story began in Ashfall, and built upon in Ashen Winter, Sunrise and the entire Ashfall Trilogy are a must read, and not just for ‘young adults'!" —

"Sunrise, the third book in what I consider the best YA/Teen series being published right now... [is an] absolutely brilliant ending to this wonderful series. I am sorry this is the last book but it provided many hours of gripping adventure and a wild, exciting ride." —Susan Wasson, Bookseller, Bookworks

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.
