Summary from Goodreads:

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?

My Review

Sanctuary was definitely not the kind of story I expected when I first picked it up, but I certainly wasn't disappointed. It starts with the world still anxiously waiting to see what's going to happen six weeks after aliens invaded Earth, still hovering in their space crafts without causing much harm except for contaminating the water supply. Everyone's waiting for that devastating moment to happen, and when it does, it's a roller coaster ride of action and suspense (mixed in with horror from alien creatures and zombies) as the three characters the novel follows (Hugh, a teacher, Jennie, the main girl and Brad, Hugh's brother) fight to survive.

I liked how Creeden used multiple perspectives to show the reader different angles of the story, and add another element to the character. All characters added an interesting slant to the story, and even though Brad was my least favourite, and sometimes I had to wonder about his purpose in the story, it was no less enjoyable reading. 

Sanctuary is a fast and chilling read, with plenty of twists and turns, I definitely didn't want to put it down until I was finished. Blending elements of sci-fiction, horror, thriller with a little bit of romance, and I would definitely recommend this to any fan of zombies or post-apocalyptic stories.
