Editorial Reviews

From the Author

A special note from Kody Boye, author of Sunrise:
Dear reader,
If you are coming across this novel in 2012, you'll be happy to hear that you are currently looking at the revised, rewritten and expanded edition of Sunrise (simply titled Sunrise: Revised and Expanded.) This edition was created out of the love for not only the story, but its genre and characters. I rewrote it with the intention of capturing the individual characters' fears, trials, problems and their escapades. The story is (mostly) the same -- it's just been upgraded to a new and stronger form.
Thank you,
- Kody

I first came across this author with his offering of dark short stories which were issued for free on a few websites and I soon got to enjoy his style of writing, so when I saw that he was release a re-written and re-edited version of an old out of print zombie book I was really excited, as zombies are my favourite genre. I was not disappointed; with this effort I can say that Kody Boye stands shoulder to shoulder with the other main authors in this field.

The story starts one month after the zombie apocalypse and the individuals histories is filled via characters telling stories and memory flashbacks. The characters which run central to this story were well thought out and the personality of each person grew as the book went on. The story was very evenly paced and follows two characters from the start with an ever growing band of survivors. Throughout the story you witness home invasion, sieges, lunatics and generally nice folk in a bad situation. There are some neat twists and it is nice to see a bit of mystery where you think that one thing is going on but it is actually something else.

This story has a gay bias, however it should be noted that although character sexuality is central to the story it is portrayed in a sensitive and sweet way and is in no way graphic or in your face. This book is full of love, whether it is plutonic between friends, between lovers or family, the care that the characters feel for each other really oozes though the entire narrative.

If I had to find flaws in this book it is only something personal to me, I like to visualise the people in the books that I read and so like to see more descriptive narrative on each character.

Sunrise follows the story of a young man on a journey to out run zombies and save his life. Dakota is holed up in an apartment with his best friend Steve. The men are forced from their safe haven by a gang. They travel many miles and avoid and kill zombies along the way. Dakota also finds love and a family he never had.
What I liked:
It was beautifully written.
Dakota is a very likeable MC. He's not like most zombie novel heroes. He's not a badass super hero. He's just a regular guy that knows how to shoot a gun and run for his life.
Steve is an amazing guy and anyone would love to have him as a bestfriend.
Kody Boye knows how to write vulnerability. He really gets the human condition. In most end of the world novels we don't see the hero cry ever. Dakota sheds lots of tears. Over big and sometimes little things.
Jamie--sigh. He's a guy any girl (or gay man) can fall in love with. Oh did I forget to mention that the MC is gay? I did? That's probably because it doesn't matter at all. This is a book about finding love and hanging on to life no matter the odds. When others turn to raiding, killing, and taking--these guys are about helping everyone and just finding joy in a dead world.
What some readers might not like:
Do not going into this book expecting a horror novel. It is not. It's a survival novel. There are zombies but they are just a situation that the characters must evolve and move around. THEY are not the stars of this story. LOVE and LIFE are. I am so glad I decided to read this book. It has gotten me out of my book slump and back on track.

This review is from: Sunrise (Kindle Edition)
Overall I think I give this book a 2.5 star rating. It did not start out good for me, but the book did end on a good note. I picked this up as a freebie a while back and read it now for a book club meeting. Honestly, if it wasn't a book club pick I would have DNF'd about 25% through. I'm glad I kept going though because it did get better and there were parts I enjoyed.

Sunrise is a zombie novel that focuses more on the characters than what is going on around them. Yes, there are zombies, but they are not the focus of the book. I did find that an interesting change since most of the zombie novels I've read have a pretty big focus on the fight scenes and the gory details. Sunrise is mainly about the people involved and their struggle to find a safe place to hide from the end of the world. The characters deal with death and grief, fear and anger, but also love and friendship.

However, for a character-driven novel, we only really start to get to know the characters about halfway through. Most of the character back story is done through dialogue and I found that to sometimes be clumsy. I didn't feel like I really understood much about the characters for the longest time. There also wasn't much character development to speak of, other than some acceptance of their situation and beginning to learn to cope. Speaking of dialogue - especially at the beginning but through most of the novel, I found the dialogue to be uncomfortable and it just didn't flow well for me. I get that this is an end of the world situation and everyone is freaking out and yelling at each other, but it was kind of cringe-worthy and awkward to me.

I also felt like the characters were making stupid mistakes.
