About the Book
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?
In My Opinion
There are several things I know I can count on when I pick up a Susan May Warren book—beautiful settings, heart-pounding moments, strong heroes and heroines who give them a run for their money, and (if it’s not the series finale) an ending that will have me itching for the next book. In Sunrise, Warren takes readers to the Alaskan bush and introduces all of the dangers there from the weather to the wildlife to men up to no good.
This is a good series finale that introduces many of the people we will most likely see again through the remaining books (I hope so, anyway). Echo is a truly impressive woman who knows Alaska and endures it year after year. Dodge is not without his faults—which he readily owns—but he’s someone you will root for.
While there were times I just wanted to lock Dodge and Echo in a room and let them hash out their past and present feelings, the journey was one worth taking. And now I’m anxiously awaiting to meet Dodge’s brothers.
