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?
Find Sanctuary on
Sanctuary follows the story of 19 year old Jennie after aliens arrive on Earth. Pauline does a wonderful job writing her characters, giving each of them flaws and strengths that are demonstrated through their actions - actions, I might add, that always advance the plot in thoughtful ways. Even the aliens are well-written; terrifying, evocatively described, and my brand-new recurring nightmare :)
The only negative thing I have to say was that Sanctuary was a bit heavy on the Christian faith theme and seemed a bit preachy to me at times. That of course, is a personal preference of mine and those who share religious faith or enjoy reading religious themes will probably enjoy that aspect of the book.
