Sanctum (The After Light Saga #2) by Cameo Renae review ~ Kami

Title: Sanctum (The After Light Saga #2)
Author: Cameo Renae
Genre: YA Post-Apocalyptic/Dystopian
Publisher: CHBB

MY REVIEW : This second book starts where the first left off. Abi is being held captive in the bunker for investigating some mysterious happenings going on with those in charge and the mutants, known as Arvies. Add some cruel soldiers and Abi's safety is threatened by not mutants but fellow survivors. This is a very compelling story. Abi is a very sympathetic character. She is willful, brave and isn't afraid to speak up against the status quo. The writing is really good. The story is intriguing with a lot of exciting, and sometimes scary,  action. The romance heats up a lot between Abi and Finn. The pacing is spot on. As I got farther into the story, I just knew something bad was going to happen, which added a lot of nervous tension for me, the reader. I was on pins and needles, chewing on my nails. A good follow up to the first book and continuation of the series. I actually like this book better than the first one. 5 stars.

The Arvy threat worsens each day. They continue to destroy the hive’s vital fuel resources, leaving us with one option— evacuate to the largest government bunker, located in South Dakota. The injured hive members are moved as first priority, but a disastrous event occurs on the way to our drop-off zone. We find ourselves in a ghost town, surrounded by spiteful, revenge filled Arvies. Chaos ensues and our death toll rises. Just when we think the end has come, unsuspected help arrives. We are rescued and brought to an underground bunker. They call it Sanctum. With no way of reaching outside help, we must depend on each other to reach our pick-up zone, thirty miles away. If we don’t make it in time, we will be left for dead. Time is ticking. My name is Abigail Park. I am a survivor.


Author Bio:
My family is what keeps my heart beating, and my world a happy place to be.

I love reading great books that whisk me away from reality, even if for a little while. :) Writing is my passion. I love creating new worlds and new characters, and taking wondrous adventures with them.

In My Dreams & Hidden Wings were both recently published through Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing. Descent (A Hidden Wings novella) will be released May 15, 2013, and Broken Wings (Book 2 in the Hidden Wings Series) will be released June 1, 2013.

One day I will find my magic wardrobe, and ride away on my magical unicorn... ♥ Until then... I'll keep writing! ;)
