Book Description

Karen Black, a marathon runner and single mother, and her daughter, Roxy, set out on a camping weekend to Dease Lake Caves in Northern British Columbia, in the Canadian wilderness. They do not realize that nearby Mount Edziza is boiling and about to erupt.

Karen's ex-husband, her current romantic interest, and several strangers are also headed in the direction of Dease Lake. When the volcano erupts, they know they must reach the safety of the caves or perish.

Violent human conflicts, ecological disaster, and shifting alliances abound as the group struggles to survive under almost impossible circumstances. Not only has Edziza erupted, but so has a string of other volcanoes around the world, resulting in the worst volcanic winter the earth has ever seen.

Now the group's future rests in their own hands. They must discover what events have brought about the apocalypse. Because if they don't understand what's happened in the past, there will be no future.

Savage Dawn is a novel of high adventure, breathtaking survival and sizzling romance, set in the wilds of northern British Columbia, Canada,

4.0 out of 5 stars Survival at its best August 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think if you set the author of this thriller down in a wilderness without any provisions, she'd soon have a sumptuous meal ready. Of course, it might be the flesh of some varmint seasoned with wild herbs and berries. Moore's knowledge, put on wonderful exhibit here in "Savage Dawn," of how to survive cataclysmic explosions of nature are very impressive. This is an apocalyptic novel wherein the best and worst of human nature also must be contended against, as if erupting volcanoes weren't enough. I enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it particularly if you are sitting in a cozy armchair with all the comforts of civilization nearby. Because Moore's characters go through terrible trials including childbirth by candlelight in a cave, attacks by grizzly bears and demented bear-like men. The action is great, the display of ingenuity dazzling, and the young, beautiful heroine, Karen, most sympathetic.

5.0 out of 5 stars ~~To the Cave~~ February 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Starting out for a weekend camping trip with her daughter, Roxy, Karen Black soon finds herself close to an eruption of Mt. Edziza. This eruption caught everyone by surprise as the predictions called for one month away. The cast of characters increases with the addition of Maria and her two children along with David, Karen's Doctor. Also, the father of Roxy also appears and is quite the villain.

The author gives a lot of background information on all of the characters which at first puzzled me. However, as the story progresses, I found that all of it fits perfectly into the story. I also like the manner in which everyone works as a team to shelter in the cave, hunt for animals and wild edibles and set up a watch for protection.

A lot of human psychology plays out between the characters. Just imagine spending that much time together and not killing one another off! And, to me, Mr. Jarvis plays such an important and poignant role in the ending of the story. "Healing and hope" abide for all of the survivors despite all of their previous troubles.

Most highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dante's Peak multiplied November 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Think of mixing "Dante's Peak" with "The day After Tomorrow", throw in a dose of "Clan of the Cave Bear", then you have this story. Very nicely written, some of the language I could have done without, but sometimes necessary to pen a good story. Not overloaded with action or thrills, just the right amount. Had a hard time visualizing parts of the scenery, people, places.

Could almost imagine this happening today to the world just to say Mother Nature and God are still in control of our lives and want us to do better with ourselves and each other. Gives you something to think about should this type of natural disaster happen today. Could we survive on our own with out modern luxuries like a stove, microwave oven, refrigerator, or even the freezer. Could you make your own shoes from animal skin?

5.0 out of 5 stars An enduring tale of survival January 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
A great adventure of what can happen during a volcano eruption of apocalyptic proportions. It is of course the will to survive, the strength in team work, and the willingness to believe in a basic human nature.
Not the first work I read from this author, and I'm sure it won't be the last.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex twist to survival tale November 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
It's always refreshing to see something other than your standard heroines in a thriller. Having a single mom and the complex relationships in this novel gave the survival element some fresh and complex threads to work with. It did make me think about what I would do to protect my children in a natural disaster. A recommended read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Savage bears and ex-husbands September 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lets see, volcanos erupt destroying mankind - or not, some people go camping during the destruction and learn quickly how to survive by killing mean bears etc, an ex-husband goes nuts and tries to kill the good guys - but disappears into the story and never returns, boyfriends and girlfriends trade partners, a little girl has some kind of seeing power and can talk to the animals for some unexplained reason, and readers are left to draw their own conclusions about the ending. Somewhat drawn-out, but the story had some interesting moments.

4.0 out of 5 stars A gripping rush from start to finish! October 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
An amazing post-disaster novel of survival, friendship and love. I really enjoyed the author's masterful storytelling style; the plot and character development were accomplished with a great degree of skill. A volcano eruption initiates a chain of disasters that eradicate "civilization"...which is then replaced by a haphazard tribe of strangers who evolve into a close-knit tribe of friends and family. I found the tale riveting -- and in spite of a few errors in grammar I just couldn't put it down! There IS a little twist at the end of the book that some folks might not really like, but I thought it was an interesting take on the typical post-apocalyptic story.

I was provided with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Venturing outside my comfort zone: Worth it! November 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I was provided with a free copy of this book so I could give an honest review. This is not my usual genre of book that I read, but I thought that I would read outside my comfort zone. And I was not disappointed. This is a book about relationships in a post apocalyptic environment filled with suspense, angst, and what next. Characters were believable, and the story line was engaging. Makes you think what would you do if you were faced in similar conditions. It is a lesson on humanity. It is a book worth checking out!
