Mark Bishop and Maeve Tildon are struggling to survive in the mini ice age that is worsening day by day. Bishop realizes that in order to stay alive that they must relocate to more favorable conditions. Their supplies are limited and dwindling fast. It won’t be long before the worst of mankind rears its ugly head. Finding and securing a new redoubt is only half of the equation. Getting everyone there alive is going to be the hardest part even if everyone agrees to go along.
Shaw’s second novel in the Surrender the Sun series, Sanctuary: A Post Apocalyptic Dystopian Thriller, continues the tale of the folks in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho as they cope with the realization that help is not coming. Even with pooled resources they know that their days are numbered. The story explores the harsh contrast between the haves and the have nots. It is well paced and minor characters from the first book are more developed.
The brutalities of this new environment touch both young and old with heart wrenching consequences. My emotions were stripped raw on more than one occasion. But, as the story is yet to be complete I am looking forward to the next book.
5 out of 5 stars.
I received this book for free from the author for review consideration. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.
