When I started reading this book my wife asked me about it. When I said it was about aliens and zombie-like creatures she was not interested in hearing more. I couldn’t blame her because most books about aliens make me cringe, and I have never even picked up a book about zombies. While reading the book I tried to respect her wishes and keep it to myself, but I just couldn't! I found myself telling her about it all the time!
It started with, ‘but it’s good’ and by the end it was, ‘this book is really intense’. Pauline does a great job of focusing on the people in the story and not the alien creatures. She brings us into a terrible reality and then, with vivid clarity, helps us to find humanity and faith.
Although Sanctuary is based around an alien invasion, I think the book is about so much more. It is about people, relationships, kindness, and most of all faith. What would you do and where would you turn when your entire world is turned upside down? Sanctuary answers those questions by following several, well developed, characters through the challenges they face and what they do when disaster strikes.
This book was well written, and very enjoyable!
