Review: Sunrise (Sky King Ranch #1) by Susan May Warren

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?

Sunrise is the first explosive volume in a new nail-biting series from USA Today bestselling author Susan May Warren.


I didn't know what this book was about before starting it. I just knew it was the new one from Susan May Warren and I had to read it. She's one of my favorite authors and rarely ever disappoints.

Sunrise was excellent. A five star read, for sure. I was instantly pulled in and became hopelessly invested in the characters' lives. I couldn't read it fast enough, and yet, I tried to take my time with it, to spend as much time in this world and with these characters as possible.

It's the first book in the Sky King Ranch series and is set in Alaska. The descriptions really transported me. Everything was so vivid, it was like I was actually there. I love when an author can do that.

The spiritual message was great. It brought tears to my eyes. It was something I didn't know I needed to hear, but I was so moved by it.

I can't recommend this book highly enough. The characters were great, the pace was fast, and the setting was breathtaking. The sequel can't come out soon enough.

I received an advanced copy of this book and voluntarily reviewed it. All thoughts and comments are my honest opinion.



  1. Both the setting and your description of the characters makes me want to read this one! :)

    1. It's so good! Warren rarely ever disappoints. :)

  2. Like the cover design. It brings in the feeling of Sunrise and the colours are appealing.

  3. This looks like a great book. Will have to check it out.

    1. It's so good! I hope you enjoy it if you get a chance to read it. :)
