Sanctuary Book Review

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?
Purchase: Amazon




My Review:
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

The aliens had left them alone so long that Jennie Ransom thought her biggest battle would be getting her parents to agree to let her return to college.  Boy, was she ever wrong! The aliens have attacked again, turning people into rabid zombies, now Jennie must fight to keep her little brother and herself in the midst of total chaos.  Where is God in all of this?  He may be closer than you think and an important key to fighting the aliens.

I love a great Christian fiction novel with bible references that tie into the story without being preachy;  Sanctuary is one of these great books.  An added bonus is that it's science fiction as well! I love Jennie's strength, through everything she was able to get herself together and do whatever needed to be done for their survival.  I thought it was amazing how this little group didn't know each other, yet banded together as a unit.  I honestly could not put this book down, I couldn't wait to see what happened next, the blossoming of Jennie and Hugh's relationship just drew me in even more.  This was a fantastic read, although the end left me hanging.  I really hope there's a book two in the works, I'm anxious to see what happens next.
