A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

Sunrise by Susan May Warren {Book Review}

 **I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

Pilot Dodge Kingston has always been the heir to Sky King Ranch. But after a terrible family fight, he left to become a pararescue jumper. A decade later, he's headed home to the destiny that awaits him. 

That's not all that's waiting for Dodge. His childhood best friend and former flame, Echo Yazzie, is a true Alaskan--a homesteader, dogsledder, and research guide for the DNR. Most of all, she's living a life Dodge knows could get her killed. One of these days she's going to get lost in the woods again, and his worst fear is that he won't be there to find her.
When one of Echo's fellow researchers goes missing, Echo sets out to find her, despite a blizzard, a rogue grizzly haunting the woods, and the biting cold. Plus, there's more than just the regular dangers of the Alaskan forests stalking her . . .

Will Dodge be able to find her in time? And if he does, is there still room for him in her heart?

Susan May Warren is one of my top must read authors, and I always know that her books are going to take me on some type of an adventure... Sunrise was certainly no exception. 

Now, I must admit that this one did take me a little bit longer to get into than some of her other books. I'm far from an outdoorsy person and some of the talk of Alaskan homesteading went just a little over my head... But while I couldn't imagine going on these adventures on my own, she sure does make them enjoyable to read about. Once I got into the story, I couldn't put it down. Sure, there may have been some more technical aspects that I didn't quite understand or relate to but I enjoyed the story despite it, and always enjoy how thorough and believable Susan's stories are. You certainly get the impression that she knows what she's talking about and that definitely gives the story an authenticity that I appreciate. I enjoyed the relationship between Echo and Dodge, blended wonderfully with action, suspense and messages of faith and forgiveness to create one wonderful story. This book did end on a bit of a surprising cliff hanger, leaving me even more excited to see what the rest of the series will bring. I am glad to see that we haven't seen the last of Echo and Dodge and will be rather impatiently waiting to see what comes next.
