Sunny is a slave. Jack is heir to the dictatorship. Their destinies are about to become entwined.

More than two hundred and eighty years have passed since the global nuclear war of 2024, and the last of humanity remains sealed inside a biodome, governed with an iron first by a merciless dictatorship. Divided into two separate societies, the Domers live a life of privilege while those beneath their feet spend their lives in the Pit, working to keep the biodome running smoothly.

Born in the Pit, Sunny O’Donnell has grown up with the knowledge that she will work as slave her entire life and then meet her fate in the annual Cull when she reaches the age of thirty-five. This is the price the people of the Pit pay for their place inside the Dome, safe from a world still teeming with radiation, and to question it would mean an earlier death. But when Sunny’s mother is killed in the Cull, the reality of their existence becomes painfully clear and questions begin to take hold.

A chance encounter with Leisel Holt, the President’s daughter, fills Sunny with hope when Leisel explains that she and her fiancé, Jack Kenner, will change things for the better in the Pit when the leadership passes to them. Naïve and in fear of the position of power Leisel holds in the Dome, Sunny agrees to help protect her from the bullet of a rumored assassin by becoming her double.

When Leisel’s betrayal leaves her accused of treason and facing execution, Sunny escapes imprisonment with Jack, whom she considers her enemy, and discovers she not only has to work with him to survive, but also lead the revolution.

Sunset Rising is Book One of a trilogy.

Customer Reviews

Great Opener!

This was a great story, and possibly the best book I have read this year. The author does not bore you with what happens leading up to the Dome, but drops you into the darkness of the Pit to experience for yourself. If you enjoyed the Hunger Games series, this story will not disappoint.

Very good

It may be a teen book but at 72yo I was really engrossed.
