Mad World: Sanctuary Review

The year is 2017, and the Black Plague infection has swept across most of the United States, leaving death and chaos in its wake. Martial law is the rule rather than the exception, with outbreaks cropping up when they're least expected. Alyssa and her friends must not only battle outbreaks of the disease, but also find themselves pursued by government agents – men and women determined to track them down at any cost. Fleeing north to the fabled Sanctuary, Alyssa, Jacob, DeAndre, Caitlyn, Risa and Luke face disturbing ordeals and terrible tragedy as they encounter unbelievable situations in their struggle to reach safety. Using their skills and wits in their fight to survive against ever worsening odds, they weather hardship, betrayal, and the ever-present specter of death as they flee north, all the while vowing to protect one another – and most of all their precious 5-year-old Luke, from a world gone mad. Sanctuary, the second installment in the Mad World series, is a heart-rending adventure of astonishing revelations, tragic discoveries, agonizing separations and devastating losses that test these friends to their limits. With heart-pounding, edge-of-your-seat suspense at every turn, this is a story you will not be able to put down. Find out what happens next.

 Ashley's thoughts:

 Wow. Samaire Provost has out done herself with this gripping sequel to Mad World: Epidemic. Behind every zombie lays a family still holding on to the hope that a cure may be found or they can somehow manage to help their loved one maintain control, if only that were truly the case. Sanctuary takes off running five years after the cliffhanger of an ending for Epidemic and doesn’t slow down. We find our makeshift family of survivors moving from town to town not only trying to escape from Zombies but now they are faced with being hunted by their own government. The CDC knows about Luke and they are prepared to use any means necessary to acquire the child. Their only hope: reaching the Canadian Sanctuary. Problem is that not only is the CDC quickly closing in on them but the deadly zombie infection is evolving, creating a more organized threat. Staying true to her cliffhanger ending, Provost keeps a tight grip until the very last word leaving you hungry for more. 5 Stars
