Sanctuary Book Review


 
 
I have a really good book to share with you today called Sanctuary written by Pauline Creeden.
 
Synopsis:
In a heart-racing thriller described as Falling Skies meets The Walking Dead, Jennie struggles to find a safe place for what’s left of her family. But it seems as though there is no place sacred, no place secure. First the aliens attacked the sun, making it dimmer, weaker, and half what it used to be. Then they attacked the water supply, killing one-third of Earth’s population with a bitter contaminate.  
And when they unleash a new terror on humankind, the victims will wish for death, but will not find it…When the world shatters to pieces around her, will Jennie find the strength she needs to keep going?
This almost had the feel of a zombie like story but there are some differences. I am not sure yet why the aliens want with our planet or why they are doing the things that they are doing and if they don't stop soon, well, Earth just might be in a bit of a jam!
 
Hugh thinks he has some idea's on how to stop them or even defeat them and so they test the theory out on a newcomer who has just been bitten and Hush is ecstatic to learn that he was correct! There is hope because he also found something else that could prove useful in the fight with the aliens.
 
I do have to warn you that a sequel will be coming because this book ends with no resolution. But, at least for the moment, Jenni, her brother Mickey and Hugh are together and safe on a military base in Virginia. Can't wait to see what happens to them in the next book!
 
Happy Reading!
