Blog tour: Sanctuary by Pauline Creeden


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
I never really loved anything with aliens, neither books or movies, with the exception of Lux series by JLA and Mars attacks! by Tim Burton. I liked this one, possibly because there were zombies and I love zombies and because it is a beautiful mix of sci fi and horror. I was really spooked a few times and thath only happened a few times, while reading Karine Halle, so I would say that the author knows how to create a great atmosphere. The aliens were original, nothing we have see before like ET or bigheaded slimy things. The characters were interesting, Jennie annoyed me from time to time, I hated Brad but he was intriguing and Hugh was delicious. I also liked Jennies little brother. All in all, a good book, if you are already missing The Walking Dead I really recommend it.

In simple language, Pauline Creeden creates worlds that are both familiar and strange, often pulling the veil between dimensions. She becomes the main character in each of her stories, and because she has ADD, she will get bored if she pretends to be one person for too long.

Pauline is a horse trainer from Virginia, but writing is her therapy.

Armored Hearts, her joint effort with author Melissa Turner Lee, has been a #1 Bestseller in Christian Fantasy and been awarded the Crowned Heart for Excellence by InDtale Magazine. Her debut novel, Sanctuary is scheduled for release September 30, 2013, and has already been nominated for two awards in YA Science Fiction.

One of Pauline's short stories has won the CCW Short Story contest. Other short stories have been published in Fear & Trembling Magazine, Obsidian River and Avenir Eclectia. An urban fantasy short will appear in The Book of Sylvari: An Anthology of Elves from Port Yonder Press, and a vampire short will appear in Monsters! from Diminished Media Group.


  1. I haven't seen any Walking Dead episode. So yeah believe it or not. I have no idea why, but I was never interested. Zombies aren't my thing either. Still I'm glad you enjoyed this one overall :)

  2. Thank you so much for posting. I was not a fan of Brad either. Delicious? lol. Hugh was pretty awesome. (:
