“Forgiveness isn’t for the person you’re forgiving. . . It’s for yourself. It’s what you do to be set free.”
I’m always excited to begin a new series by Susan May Warren, and the first book in her Sky King Ranch series is fantastic. Set in the wilds of Alaska, and starring Dodge Kingston, one of a set of triplets, this book drew me in from the first page and kept me holding on for dear life amidst all the action.
When Dodge returns to Alaska after ten years away, he doesn’t count on seeing his old girlfriend, Echo Yazzie again. And he isn’t happy that he still has feelings for her. Dodge is a wonderful hero—courageous, daring, and compassionate, but he and Echo both have baggage from their pasts to work through.
“Stop telling God what you want, and let him work his will in you. You might find answers.”
With lots of action, adventure, suspense, a dash of romance, and themes of forgiveness, second chances, and letting God prevail in your life, Sunrise has something for everyone. I’m looking forward to Ranger’s and Colt’s stories and more Alaskan adventures.

Coming home was never the plan
After a terrible family fight, pilot Dodge Kingston left home to join the Air Force. A decade later, he's headed back to the destiny that awaits him as heir to Sky King Ranch. But that's not all that's waiting for him at home.
Echo Yazzie is a true Alaskan woman--a homesteader, dogsledder, and research guide for the DNR. After her childhood best friend and former flame, Dodge, fled Denali, she settled into life on the Alaskan range. She's made her peace with being left behind--by her mother and by Dodge. And she's strong enough to live without them.
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. What she doesn't know is that there are more than just the regular dangers of the Alaskan forests stalking her . . .
As Dodge sets out to find Echo, he can't ignore the feelings he still has for her. But will he be able to find her in time? And if he does, is there still room for him in her heart?
