Review: Sanctuary

Sanctuary Sanctuary by Caryn Lix
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Preordered the Kindle ebook with Amazon.de, but they cancelled on publication day, due to a price rise.
Found it cheaper elsewhere - owning Kindle and a Tolino ereader, I can buy and read Kindle and EPub ebooks even with DRM.

As we have a heatwave in Germany, I read a few hours and managed with little sleep, and was more than half through when I turned the lights out, a quarter to midnight on the first day.

Very well written, so far lots of action and twists I did not see coming. A little obvious and expected romance, no sex. After the not very suspenseful (link will be inserted today) These broken stars, which dragged at times, this is way better - so far, but my guess is, it will stay that way. Might get 5 stars, so far. Ok, so it is more like 4 to 4.5 stars, but I rounded to 5 for the first in the series.
Hopefully the next one will be as good or better.

Romance, not really sure, if this counts as instalove - I think not - no sex. Suspenseful and no toned down death-scenes, might be a little too gruesome and bloody for some. Also quite a few real characters die.

What warrants less than 5 stars, some might even give 3:
- at times too much thinking about the same things again and again
- a few too much coincidences aka deus ex machina, convenient, but summed up not too believable.

Still I stand by my 5 star rating and highly recommend it, it was a fast page-turner for me.
