About the book:
Before Dawn, What Dangers Lurk in the Darkness?
For nine months, since a devastating solar flare caused a complete failure of the electrical grid, Shelby Sparks and her diabetic son, Carter, have been living at the ranch of Shelby’s high school sweetheart, Max Berkman.
Mostly insulated from the chaos surrounding them, Shelby and Max discover that the Texas government has fled the capitol and is barely maintaining control of the state. The governor needs volunteers to search for the new federal government, but no one knows exactly where it might be located—if it even still exists—or what perils await those brave enough to take on the mission.
Compelled by Carter’s desperate need for insulin and their God-given sense of duty, Shelby and Max answer the governor’s call and set out on a treacherous 600-mile journey, where they will experience the terrifying effects of unrestrained anarchy. If they have the faith and fortitude necessary to reach their destination, what will they find when they get there?
In this thrilling conclusion to the Remnant trilogy, America is left teetering between total collapse and the dawn of a new and vastly different reality.
This was another winner in the Remnant series! There was always something surprising happening, some truly out of the blue events, and of course, plenty of action! There was some romance as some people started pairing off and it was nice to get some closure on some things. We get the perspectives of Max, Shelby and Carter and I really like the unique viewpoint they each bring. Max and Shelby think quite a bit about their faith, fighting to trust God more amid so much chaos while Carter struggles a bit more with believing when bad things keep happening to good people. This book really made me grateful for the conveniences we still have but also wondering what I would do in their situation and how prepared am I? There's an author's note in the back where she talks about some of the new technologies and also the likelihood of a large solar storm happening in the next ten years, which according to NASA is twelve percent. There have been large solar storms in 2003, 2011, 2012, 2013 an 2015 but obviously not to the extent of the one in the book, at least not yet. It was fascinating to learn about some of the new technologies out there, some of which are actually being used today! I'm sad to see this series end but it was a fun ride while it lasted! I highly recommend this whole series!
I received this book free from Harvest House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
