Light of Dawn
by Vannetta Chapman
From the back cover:
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.

What a wonderful conclusion to an amazing series!
If you haven’t started reading The Remnant, you should. And if you’ve been waiting for the complete series before you begin, you can now read the whole thing. And you should! (You can find my reviews of the first two books here: Deep Shadows and Raging Storm.)
A natural catastrophe that knocks out the entire power grid would have huge implications on our lives, and it’s not an impossibility. Shelby, Max, and their friends have endured much in the nine months since the flare. Their experiences leave you pondering your own reactions to the trials this collapse would bring.
But more than just the inconvenience of the loss of all modern technology, the characters must deal with their God. How could a good God allow this devastation? Why didn’t He spare them? Is He even still listening to their cries?
Light of Dawn brings the series to a close in such a fabulous way. You’ll probably still be thinking about the ramifications of an event like that happening in reality, but hopefully you’ll face it with the reminder that even if such a thing were to occur, God is still good. Because whatever trials we face in life, we don’t face alone if we are following Him!
