When the Dawn Breaks

B.R. Spangler

The skies are burning and humanity is tearing itself apart. Emily Stark is a ray of hope in the darkness, fighting for survival, fighting for truth.

Amidst the corrosive clouds that shroud the globe, Emily is on a mission to reach the colossal machine that brought the skies crashing to earth. She has the power to destroy it, but her journey is fraught with danger.

The savage Outsiders patrol the poisonous, dark wilderness, hunting for any sign of life. As the acid air burns her skin, Emily can only stifle her screams. She must remain undetected. She must succeed in her mission.

Deep within the workings of the machine, Declan Chambers wakes from a nightmare to the gentle touch of his beloved Sammi. She is beautiful, vibrant, enchanting… but he vividly recalls burying her broken body just a few days before.

Utterly bewitched, he’s desperate to believe Sammi is real. As her belly swells with new life, she promises Declan the machine is not their enemy—it can grant them a life together, forever. But at what cost?

Clouds fall, the dead rise, and Emily has the fate of humanity in her hands. To return sunlight to the earth, she must destroy the machine. But will the sight of her resurrected sister, safe and happy, present a truly impossible choice?

When the Dawn Breaks is the electrifying finale of USA Today bestselling author B.R. Spangler’s Dark Skies Apocalypse duology. A completely gripping dystopian thriller that will leave you breathless, it’s perfect for fans of A.G. Riddle, Kyla Stone and Mike Kraus.
