It's happened once before, and it will happen again.
In the year 2030 the Maunder Minimum, a period of solar inactivity, will cause a mini-ice age like it did between the years 1645 and 1710. When it does, Bishop will have to save her not only from the effects of severe weather but also from man himself.
Maeve Tildon and her son Ben live alone in the rural town of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Since her husband died in the war, she's barely kept her head above water, and when the first freeze strikes in the fall, she's completely unprepared for what lies ahead. Only a war-torn man, one who prefers the solitude of the Kootenai National Forest, can rescue her and her son.
From the best-selling author of the Graham's Resolution series, Shaw brings you Surrender the Sun.

Prolific reader and listener of books of all kinds.
One of the better prepper disaster type of books. Well written and researched and mostly plausible.
Kevin Pierce always does an excellent job of narration and brings more depth and characterization to the books he narrates. This one is no exception.
Well written book about a unprepared mother and son. Of course most of the other characters in the book are unprepared as well. The signs are all there and as probably will always be true, they are ignored. Fortunately the prepared ones are mostly decent and do help as they can. There are a lot of hard cold facts as well. Facing a total breakdown of the infrastructure, at least locally as well as the extreme cold prove more than most can cope with.
There are a few moments that stretch credulity, but by in large this book is credible, possible and entertaining.

a widowed mother and her young son face the "unexpected" ice age with the help of a real world guardian angel/hermit and along the way step up when a whole town is too scared to make a stand.
the sign of a great writer is when they are able write a story with an actual beginning, midddle and a true ending (no stupid cliffhanger) that you feel good about while also leaving the reader anxious to read where the story goes next.
the author paints such a vivid image of the setting that you can't help but see the snow covered landscape while looking into booking a winter weekend on Lake Coeur d'Alene.
ready for book 2!
Honorable, Exciting, Awesome
My favorite charactor
Kevin Pierce is one of the greatest narrator on Audible, I wouldn't have experienced the feeling that he puts into the book.
I did listen to this in one sitting. I will continue to listen to this book and follow the series.
I absolutely enjoyed this story and the narration. Thank you for the share.

What a great listen. The author's rendition an apocalyptic event that describes the world without warmth took me be surprise. Kevin Pierce is one of the best narrators I have ever listened to. Combine that with this great story made it hard to put down.
In Surrender the Sun A R. Shaw penned a book introducing a bleak cold world that came to life with the graphic narration of Kevin Pierce. I literally had a physical reaction to the change... the cold as it enveloped everything. This book was described as a post apocalyptic dystopian thriller and if this is a favored genre you will not be disappointed. My advice though is get a warm sweater and hunker down in front of the fire place before you start. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher and am grateful for the opportunity to review it.
I was really impressed with this book. I thought the author did a great job conveying the anarchy that would take over shortly after an environmental crisis. It does seem like a plausible phenomenon but I felt that it was a little weird that everyone knew what was happening right away. In reality, I'd expect it to take a little longer to sink in. I really liked the characters. Maybe it's just the 'girl' in me but I would have liked a more descriptive transition from friendship to romance. I think there is a big chunk of the story missing there.
I was disappointed that the book was ending because I felt that there was a lot more story to cover. I was happy to learn there is a sequel but think they should have been combined into one book. This could actually be quite a long series, especially if the author decided to share stories from other areas as well. I am very interested to see where it goes and will be watching this author.

I found this to be a very intriguing new approach to the TEOTWAWKI story line. I found the story concept thought provoking.
The main characters are likeable and approachable. They are easy to relate to and care about as we follow them through the challenges that they face.
I found that the background story of the overall world situation and the history up to the real time event was underdeveloped. This could have made this more interesting and allowed for more of a story.
The narrator did a fantastic job on this book making it very easy to listen to and follow the characters without any confusion.
This was an enjoyable and interesting listen.

The author took true science and used it in the story to help in the destruction of the world. The maunder minimum cause a second mini ice and all the civil unrest that goes with in in the town the story is set in, in Idaho.
My favorite moment of the story was Bishop rescuing the little girl in the burning home. He knows its a bad idea and he is going to get really hurt but he can't see another child die.
Kevin Pierce has the best voice in the business for this genre. He brings stories and characters to life better than anyone else out there. I have given other books and series a chance just because he was the narrator and I was not disappointed.
Yes wanted to listen to the story all in one sitting but I parceled out the story to make it last to enjoy it until the author has the sequel ready

I can't wait to see how this series will play out. I find it very interesting that it is the weather (extreme cold) not an EMP that brings about the end of "normal society". Kevin has done another wonderful job narrating. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.
Always searching for that next great adventure to dive into... preferably while society collapses and all hell is breaking loose!
As a fan of Ms. Shaw's previous series "Graham's Resolution" I was anticipating a well written, researched and entertaining book... she didn't disappoint! I stayed up late to finish this book as I literally couldn't stop listening and finished it without pausing once!
I've listened to so many post apocalyptic books on EMP's, CME's, economic collapse, and this novel was a refreshing change of pace, referencing a natural disaster that nobody is talking about. It's very informative!
I'm an outspoken fan of Kevin Pierce... he's "The Voice of the Apocalypse" in my mind and if S*** really does Hit The Fan, I know it'll be his voice in my mind as I fortify my preps and protect my loved ones.

""Dead man's funny!""
When it started to snow at the end of October and they cancelled Halloween, few people were prepared for how bad it would get. Certainly not still grieving widow, Mauve. Her husband, Roger had been killed in the war a year before leaving her alone with a young son, Ben, in an isolated house by the Forrest. fortunately, he had asked an old military friend, now living as a recluse in the woods, to look out for them. And he did.This is their story of survival as a mini ice age envelopes their world, a fight against the cold, lack of provisions and the rapidly escalating civil unrest. And it is a terrifying tale as there is a real sense of both immediacy and possibility, sometimes missing in other apocalyptic books.
The main characters are well drawn by the author and Kevin Pierce's excellent narration really brings them to life as well as his reading being pleasant on the ear. A good pepper's starter book, too, reminding us all that disaster can strike when least expected and at least some basic provision should be made for when it does -even if this only means keeping the larder stocked up with more than just a couple of days food. More could well be hard to come by even in a temporary disaster.
My thanks to the right's holder for gifting me a copy of Surrender the Sun, via Audiobook Boom. It was most enjoyable, well written and certainly worth the listen. I believe there is to be a sequel. If so, I will certainly want to hear it.
