Sundown, by Susan May Warren, is the final book in the Sky King Ranch trilogy, and what a thrilling end it is!
When Colt goes home to recover, he finds Tae firmly ensconced in his family home. She’s pretty, but he knows she has secrets. When his family is put in danger because of those secrets, Tae goes on the run. But he’s already committed to the fight, so he follows and finds more than he was looking for.
I knew Colt’s story would be full of hard things because of the hints we saw in the first two books, but oh, I think he’s my favorite Kingston brother. I enjoyed watching Colt find his way in this book. He had to recognize that his personality was not a flaw, but a gift that God had given him to help others.
And Taylor was the perfect woman for him though she was not without issues. She had to learn that she wasn’t in control and needed to let go and let God have His way.
So what happens when the girl who wants a man committed to home and hearth falls in love with the man who runs into danger? Sparks! Lots and lots of them.
It was so fun watching these characters adjust their expectations and views of themselves as love opened them up to new possibilities. If you’ve read Sunrise or Sunburst, you’ll get glimpses into what’s going on with the other Kingston brothers.
Readers will be reminded that no one is beyond God’s love. Each of us is as valuable as the next person, none of us were created “less than”. Also, God’s plan for your life is bigger than any plan you could ever make for yourself.
Colt and Tae’s story is complete in this book though there are threads that began in Sunrise (book one in the Sky King Ranch series). Can you read Sundown as a standalone? Sure, but the story is so much more than what happens in this book–you may want to read them all and it’s a good series, you will enjoy reading the trilogy.
Sundown takes the thread that has been running through the Sky King Ranch trilogy (and several other series) and brings it to a stunning conclusion.
If you enjoy the woman in peril, trauma, or redemption tropes, you may enjoy Sundown.
I received an advanced reader’s copy from the publisher through NetGalley and Just Read Tours; a positive review was not required.
About Sundown (Sky King Ranch Book #3)
Former Delta Operative Colt Kingston knows when someone is lying. He may not know the truth, but he sure doesn’t trust Tae, the woman who is caring for his ailing father at Sky King Ranch. Behind those beautiful blue eyes, he can tell there is a troubled–and smart–woman.
A few of her stories prove true–he’s found the crashed plane and the dead body inside. Still, her story of survival seems too incredible to believe . . . until the thugs she claims to be hunting her show up and threaten Sky King Ranch. Now Tae must disappear, along with her secrets.
But Colt’s not about to let her go it alone. And when they discover that her secrets include the antidote to a plague that threatens the world, it’ll take all three Kingston brothers to save the country they’ve vowed to protect.
Susan May Warren brings her Sky King Ranch series to a climactic close with this high-stakes race against the clock.

About Susan May Warren
Growing up in Minneapolis and attending the U of MN, I learned to love city life, although I’m a woodsy girl at heart. Or maybe I’m an adventurer — having lived and traveled all over the world, including Siberia Russia as a missionary for eight years. Probably that’s why my characters can’t sit still, and seem to get into one scrape after another — they’re too much like me! I love God, my family, my country, my church, and feel privileged every day to be able to write stories.
