Tour! A Review of Sanctuary by Pauline Creeden

Sanctuary by Pauline Creeden
Genre: Young Adult (Science Fiction/Post Apocalyptic)
Date Published: September 10, 2013
Publisher: Self
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?

Sanctuary by Pauline Creeden is a story that combines Aliens, Zombies, and a little bit of Revelations. This is a combination I haven't seen together before, and I have to say, I kinda liked it. We're given the perspectives of Jennie, Brad, and Hugh. I didn't like Brad at all. You're not supposed to like him, but I'm not really sure why we were given his perspective. It makes me think he might be playing a bigger role in the next book. Sanctuary had some slow moments, but for the most part it was interesting and different. I really enjoyed the Biblical aspect. I like how it put a different interpretation on some of the things mentioned in Revelations. There are some definite good vs evil stuff going on, and this book has me curious for more.

Sanctuary by Pauline Creeden was kindly provided to me by the YA Bound for review. The opinions are my own.

In simple language, Pauline Creeden 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.

Pauline is a horse trainer from Virginia, but writing is her therapy.

Armored Hearts, her joint effort with author Melissa Turner Lee, has been a #1 Bestseller in Christian Fantasy and been awarded the Crowned Heart for Excellence by InDtale Magazine. Her debut novel, Sanctuary is scheduled for release September 30, 2013, and has already been nominated for two awards in YA Science Fiction.

One of Pauline's short stories has won the CCW Short Story contest. Other short stories have been published in Fear & Trembling Magazine, Obsidian River and Avenir Eclectia. An urban fantasy short will appear in The Book of Sylvari: An Anthology of Elves from Port Yonder Press, and a vampire short will appear in Monsters! from Diminished Media Group.
