Synopsis (from Goodreads): Desperate to find refuge from the nuclear storm, a group of civilians discover a secret government bio-dome. Greeted by a hail of bullets and told to turn back, the frantic refugees stand their ground. They are grudgingly permitted entry, but the price of admission is high. Two hundred and eighty-three years later… Life as a slave in the Pit had never been easy, but for seventeen-year-old Sunny O’Donnell it was quickly falling apart. Her mother had been killed in the annual spring Cull, leaving her alone with a father who was no longer interested in living the short time he had left. Not that she blamed him for mourning. Her own heart was aching with overwhelming grief. But if they didn’t earn enough credits to keep their place inside the Pit, they would be kicked out into a world still teeming with radiation. That left her to earn the credits for both of them, and it didn’t help that her boyfriend, Reyes Crowe, was pressuring her to marry him and abandon her father. Sunny didn’t think life could get any worse until a chance encounter with Leisel Holt, the president's daughter, and her fiancé, Jack Kenner, leaves her accused of treason. Slated for execution, she escapes with a man she considers an enemy and discovers she not only has to work with him to survive, but also to lead the revolution.
Sunset Rising is one of those books that leaves me asking why on earth I left it so long to read.Read more ›
The book is amazing, the storyline is appealing, the characters are strong and likeable. The book is well written. I stayed up to the early hours to finish the book, I just couldn't put it down. Couldn't tear myself away from the book for one second.
I need books 2 and 3 NOW!!!
Highly recommend to any dystopian book lover.
As!e review given on my goodreads account.
As a YA dystopian novel, this has got to be one of the best I've read, and now I can't wait to read more. The author has managed to create a remarkable future world, where the poor are used as slaves, and the rich live a life of luxury. The president is crazy and his daughter comes up with a plan that turns Summer's and Jack's lives upside down, changing everything.
Incredibly well written and descriptive, this book had me completely gripped from start to finish and I had difficulty putting it down. The character development is flawless, and their strengths shine through as the book continues. This book will definitely be read time and time again.
I received an e-copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
