Hi everyone! I have a stop on the Sanctuary Blog Tour today. I have a review and a giveaway for you all.
By: Pauline Creeden
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?
Jennie is scared when the aliens arrive. Her friend and others think it is awesome but she is worried. When one third of the population dies from the aliens attacking the water supply the others have to worry when the next step will be. Jennie is stuck at home with her parent and little brother when they strike again. Now Jennie has to see if she can make it to safety with her little brother. Along the way she meets some new people and she sees she has the courage to go on. How far will the aliens go and is there any way to stop them.
Jennie at first seems a timid scared person but as the book moves along you see she is very brave. She has to take care of herself and he little brother. She has to do some very hard things and really grows up and she struggle to survive. She also begins to have some feelings for Hugh who she knew before the attacks but she isn't sure about him. She has to sort through the lies and deception to see the real man beneath it. Hugh is so amazing. He is smart, sexy and has really gave thought to what the aliens are up to. He and Jennie may just be the key to the survival of humans.
I read this book in one sitting as it is a fascinating world the author has created. I have read a few books about aliens here lately but this one is different. It has a zombie like feel to it as well which I love. This is a fresh engaging read that I hated to see end. I really want more of it. I can't wait to see what happens next and how it will end. The book follows three characters that all intertwine later on. Brad, Hugh and Jennie. I like Jennie and Hugh but can't stand Brad. I love how the author added that Jennie's brother didn't like Brad but couldn't say why. Also this may be strange but I love the little things the author added to this book. One example is Jennie and her little brother riding in her car and his sippy cup is making a whistling noise. As a mom I can say that has drove me crazy in a car before. It's little things like that draw you in and you know she has spent time thinking things out. If you like a book about aliens, zombies or just want a fantastic story to read pick this one up.
5 out of 5 Stars

Pauline Creeden is a horse trainer from Virginia, but writing is her therapy. In her fiction, she creates worlds that are both familiar and strange, often pulling the veil between dimensions. She becomes the main character in each of her stories, and because she has ADD, she will get bored if she pretends to be one person for too long.
Be sure to follow the rest of the tour.
