Sanctuary is the second book in The Dark Days Series by Christopher Cole. After the zombies attacked Fort Denver, Sonny and his friends Ashley and Carrie had no other choice but to run for their lives. Miserable and scared out of their minds, they found refuge at Fort Gold Rush. They were safe as long as they were inside the city, but nothing was as they expected it to be in the city. Before they even knew what was happening, Sonny and his friends had to train to become the next soldiers that would protect the city from the hordes of zombies and creatures that roamed everywhere outside the city walls. The task was hard, but Sonny, Ashley, and Carrie were ready to face the challenges that might come their way. But would they survive the training process? Were they meant to be the next protectors or the next victims?
What a brilliant new installment in The Dark Days series! Sonny grew up and became a protector for his friends, but I loved how the three of them stuck together to support each other. Sanctuary was all about their progress as characters and highlighted how far they had come. They weren’t scared little kids anymore. They were resilient, ready to fight, and move forward. Sonny was sharper, more calculating, and a better leader for his friends. I enjoyed reading the tough-love relationship he formed with Grim. That relationship really shaped Sonny’s character and gave it depth. I really liked how Christopher Cole gave us different narratives to make the story personal and allowed readers to form a connection with different characters. I enjoyed Grim’s chapters, but Nathan’s voice was great too. Sanctuary is phenomenal and highly recommended.
