“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.”
Sanctuary is book 2 in the Mad World series. It picks up 5 years after Epidemic ends. Luke is a zombie/human hybrid and Alyssa, Jake and the others have been on the run trying to protect him from being grabbed by the government. A late night knock on the door sends them running again, this time heading for a place called Sanctuary across the border in Canada. They lose one of their own and pick up an addition to the family along the way. Things settle but don’t get much better. The world continues to fall to the zombie virus with no cure in sight. I became even more attached to the characters in this, the second book. The ending left me shocked and almost in tears. Book 3 can not come fast enough! Another 5/5!
