What if the Biblical End Times unfolded in a way no one told you about and the rapture didn't happen before the tribulation began...

"Makes you afraid of the end times again." - D. M. Dutcher for Sword Cross Rocket

"Sanctuary crosses boundaries and borders and incorporates elements of all kinds of action and intrigue, from thriller-like adventure to a post-apocalyptic tale of life after aliens invade. Thus it will delight readers seeking something truly different, while disappointing those who anticipated a shallow, one-dimensional subject and story line." - Midwest Book Review

Left Behind for the Hunger Games generation

In a heart-racing thriller described as Falling Skies meet 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?

Format: Kindle Edition
This story is told from three main viewpoints – Jennie, Hugh and Brad. Jennie is a college student. Hugh and Brad happen to be brothers and they don’t get along. Brad is a mechanic and a womanizer who likes women that can take care of him. Hugh is a biology teacher at the local high school who has been working on his PhD.

I don’t typically read books about zombies. I mean the walking undead? I love fantasy, but that’s just a little too unreal for me. Well, I found myself caught up in this apocalyptic novel, totally captivated, and suddenly discovered that these poor suffering people that couldn’t die were…. You guessed it. Zombies. I have to admit I have never looked at the quote just before the beginning of Chapter 3 that way before: Revelation 9:6 “And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them” (Note: in the book the reference is given as Revelation 9:3).

This was a really scary, gripping book. I enjoyed the way Ms. Creeden told it from the three points of view, bringing the three characters together about half way through the book. It gave the opportunity to see into their characters and lives in a way that we wouldn’t have been able to if the entire story was told from a single POV.

There are spiritual lessons to be found in Ms. Creeden’s book too. At one point in the story, Jennie needs to get help for Hugh, who has been bitten by one of the alien creatures and is unconscious, but she needs to get Mickey her 5 year old brother to a safe place first. She carries Mickey from the mess hall down the street to the chapel past several of the alien beings who either seem not to see her or are uninterested in her – something totally unheard of before.

The beginning of Sanctuary by Pauline Creeden was interesting and caught my attention because it confused me. I didn’t really know what was going on in the story as the protagonists were keeping details to a minimum when talking about what they were looking at. A little later on, we discover what they were talking about and I surely was not expecting the answer I received about the problem being aliens!

I typically don’t like reading stories in which the narrator changes throughout the story to each tell their side of the story. However, I found that this change in narration was a necessity for the proper development of this story as we got to see how the alien invasion affected everyone in different ways. I loved how, by using this technique, we, the readers, know just as much as the main characters about what is going on in their town. This also allowed us to experience what the various narrators were experiencing and feeling. My heart was beating very fast throughout most of the story as each narrator’s would have been too.

Overall, I loved reading Sanctuary as it tapped into all of my emotions. This story reminded me of the film World War Z where a new race comes into a town and starts to turn only select people into aliens or zombies. This leaves the person reading the book (or watching the film) to wonder just what attracts this different race and makes you wonder that if this were to happen whether or not you would survive. I would personally take more of the chicken approach (meaning I would most definitely not fight the aliens) and would gather my family, close friends, a lot of food together and camp out in a tall building until it was safe to go outside. What would be your survival instinct?

This author had a particularly interesting take on the alien/zombie storyline (not what I'm used to from this genre and that's not a bad thing!). I would say this novel has definite promise. The only suggestion I have (& the reason I gave it 3 stars) is that perhaps a final bit of editing should be done to eliminate the grammatical/spelling errors. Once that's been rectified it'll be much easier to focus solely on the very interesting storyline and it'll be a five star read. Additionally, it appeared as though some words were missing in the hospital scene between the nurse and the pastor - I was confused as to when he'd become injured enough to cause the dark stain (I'm assuming it referenced blood) on the front of his shirt (I'd say more but I don't want to give out any spoilers). I'll be watching for more work from this very promising author.
