Book Of The Month

SANCTUARY(SANCTUARY#1) BY CARYN LIX

This book was an engaging ride filled with suspense, action, and thrill. It’s not a total perfection without flaws but I really enjoyed reading it and I can’t wait to check out the next book.

BLURB: Alien meets Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds in this thrilling debut novel about prison-guard-in-training, Kenzie, who is taken hostage by the superpowered criminal teens of the Sanctuary space station—only to have to band together with them when the station is attacked by mysterious creatures.

Kenzie holds one truth above all: the company is everything.

As a citizen of Omnistellar Concepts, the most powerful corporation in the solar system, Kenzie has trained her entire life for one goal: to become an elite guard on Sanctuary, Omnistellar’s space prison for superpowered teens too dangerous for Earth. As a junior guard, she’s excited to prove herself to her company—and that means sacrificing anything that won’t propel her forward.

But then a routine drill goes sideways and Kenzie is taken hostage by rioting prisoners.

At first, she’s confident her commanding officer—who also happens to be her mother—will stop at nothing to secure her freedom. Yet it soon becomes clear that her mother is more concerned with sticking to Omnistellar protocol than she is with getting Kenzie out safely.

As Kenzie forms her own plan to escape, she doesn’t realize there’s a more sinister threat looming, something ancient and evil that has clawed its way into Sanctuary from the vacuum of space. And Kenzie might have to team up with her captors to survive—all while beginning to suspect there’s a darker side to the Omnistellar she knows.

Thank you for reading and Let’s Chat! ❤

So, how was your August? How many books have you read this month and what is your favorite book of the month? Have you read any of the book from the above list?

Until next time and Have a great day! 😀

    Here’s hoping you can get caught up with reading this month. It’s so hard when we fall behind, hugs! I’m so happy you loved Sanctuary! I added it to my tbr last year because it said “Alien meets Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds” and well, how can I pass that up?! Even if I’m now scared of horror movies. But back in the day I was obsessed with the movie Aliens and I loved The Darkest Minds, so we’ll see. 🙂

    Oh I’m sorry to see you didn’t love The Merciful Crow. I loved the world and the magic so much. I can’t wait for the next book. But it sounds like Sanctuary really won you over. I need to check out that series. ❤ Happy reading in September Raven.

      Although I didn’t love The Merciful Crow, I wasn’t really disappointed with the book. It was an enjoyable read and I’m looking forward to the next book. I hope you enjoy Sanctuary if you decide to give it a shot! Thank you! Hope you’re having an amazing reading month!!! 😘
