Publisher's Summary

Danger lurks in the shadows...A place where the brave tread warily... Jack Walker has returned from the rescue of his girlfriend with a small band of survivors. Their harrowing journey from the Middle East included a stop at the CDC where they learned vital information about the ferocious new species that hunt at night. The night runners dominate the landscape and a world turned upside down by the sudden death of billions. With humanity on the brink, the small group must carve out a sanctuary against the nightly onslaught from night runners on the prowl for food. They must enter into darkened buildings in search of supplies; darkened buildings that are now the domain of the night runners.

Danger lurks with each step and death lies in waiting for the unwary. Jack and the group must stay one step ahead of the game; a game where the night runners continue to adapt to this new world. Will his training and instincts be enough? Will this last remnant of humanity make it through this next phase of survival?The shadows await... beckoning.

    "Miles better book"
    If you could sum up Sanctuary in three words, what would they be?

    Total Amazing Action


    What does Mark Gagliardi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Mark is miles better than whom ever narrated book two listened to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I thought book 1 was slow and book 2 was good but the narration was terrible but now i see book 2 has Mark narrating it so go for that one because it is a good book. This book however is great it is fast paced all the way through and there is a very sad part in it with Nic but even with that the action keeps you wanting more. Really enjoyable book they are getting better just downloaded book 4 :)

    "OK...SO THIS WAS THE BEST ONE YET! ON TO BOOK 4!"
    Where does Sanctuary rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Its decent...and it is a good story about a man who really cares about others..and a great will to survive!


    What other book might you compare Sanctuary to and why?

    Its PA Zombie fiction...take your pick...lol All Zombfic is a little different...and the zombies are unique usually...John's zombies are Night Walkers...almost like vamp zombies....but they want more than your blood...and the bite is not contagious...


    Have you listened to any of Mark Gagliardi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    In this series only...and in this one..he really broke through to my heart, as did John with this book...this is what I was waiting for..EMOTION! It was raw and very well written and I liked it....That is one of the reasons I like Mark Tufo's books...he makes me laugh...and he makes me cry...and he builds his characters into real people for you in your mind....that is what John did for me in this book....and that is what I need in a series, if I am going to invest in it my money and my time! YMMV...but this is what works for me!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Again...I think this would transfer to film or tv very nicely...


    Any additional comments?

    FINALLY JOHN!! You broke through my Icy little heart...lol Just kidding I am a softy...This book finally bonded me to this group and made me decide to continue this series, or at least move on to book 4....I cried for Jack....and when he had that premonition near the end, I screamed for him...and I was like...Yep...you dragged my heart in...lol Each book gets better and better...so if you have any doubts people...keep going...because I have a feeling this series is going to be fantastic from here on out....3rd book really was the charm for me!

    What I see when I take a mental look at this series so far is a man who really cares about others, and has a will to save people and survive...his family is important to him, and if he brings you into his circle, you are now his family...I see a man who will do whatever it takes to save what is left of humanity...But I fear that the night runners will not only be who this group will have to end up defending themselves against here pretty soon...But Other survivors..as that's what is ALWAYS the MOST dangerous thing in the Zombie Apocalypse!

    Also a little side note...the Night Runners seem to be coming back into there humanity a bit mentally...VERY INTERESTING!! I gotta see where that goes...especially with the kids mom...she was kind of kidnapped wasn't she???

    "Best Zombie Apocalypse Series ever!"

    Love this series! I have read a large range of the zombie genre and this series is my total favourite, the story line continues to be interesting with great twists and turns and the narration is spot on! I’m sure you’ll love this series as much as I do!

    "Favorite in the series so far!"

    I really liked this book, fascinating to see how people band together and make do with what is left after such a traumatic event has occurred. Makes you think - how would we protect ourselves, feed ourselves and just keep on living without the technology we have become so reliant on. Great detail and characters. Keep up the good work!

    "Great Book!"
    If you could sum up Sanctuary in three words, what would they be?

    I want more!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sanctuary?

    Robert's death was very emotional on the heels of Nicole's death, but I was glad there was a plot twist and it was really just a day-mare.


    What about Mark Gagliardi’s performance did you like?

    I like listening to Mark tell this story. His words are very clear and appropriately reflect the mood of the situation.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions, but this book did end with more questions than answers, and I must now read (listen to) book 4... I mean, right now.

    "It just keeps getting better!"
    What about Mark Gagliardi’s performance did you like?

    I have to admit-it took me a little bit to get used to his narration. I felt it was a little to strong or like he was trying too hard in the first 2 books. Now I feel like it is spot on-he is Jack all the way and the other vioices have just all come together so well. I am really enjoying him


    Any additional comments?

    Night Runners VS Zombies. I really like how his "zombies" are the night runners. Different enough to keep it interesting!

    "Intense"

    The struggle for Jack and his team continues as they have found a place that will suit their needs; space and safety. Jack continues to question his every move as he struggles to keep those under his command safe while attempting to rescue as many survivors as possible. Torn by so many decisions and chances that must be taken if they are to find the elusive sanctuary they so desperately need, Jack continues to fight because he has little choice. And it will cost him dearly. Up until now, the previous books have been very well written, and listening to the audbile has been a new experience. It is intense, hard to listen to at times but worth every emotion it wrings out of you.
