VBT Review: Mad World Sanctuary

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. 

Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS

Review: It isn't over yet.....

Mad World Sanctuary is the thrilling second installment in the Mad World Series. The same kind of thrill, the same kind of terror is back, and these friends are certainly not out of the woods yet. In their flee to safety, the unknown is about to strike, each one more disturbing and strange than the last. 

I am very intrigued with the world building, the characterization, and the fast moving plot that only gets more intense as time goes on. It's part thriller, part horror, and so much more. Plenty of action, edge of your seat suspense, and pulse pounding horror. Just when you think you can rest and take a breather, that's where you're wrong. So very, very wrong.

This is a great book, great series, but I do suggest you start out from the beginning.
