Book Review – Sanctuary by Caryn Lix

sanctuaryKenzie holds one truth above all: the company is everything.

As a citizen of Omnistellar Concepts, the most powerful corporation in the solar system, Kenzie has trained her entire life for one goal: to become an elite guard on Sanctuary, Omnistellar’s space prison for superpowered teens too dangerous for Earth. As a junior guard, she’s excited to prove herself to her company—and that means sacrificing anything that won’t propel her forward.

But then a routine drill goes sideways and Kenzie is taken hostage by rioting prisoners.

At first, she’s confident her commanding officer—who also happens to be her mother—will stop at nothing to secure her freedom. Yet it soon becomes clear that her mother is more concerned with sticking to Omnistellar protocol than she is with getting Kenzie out safely.

As Kenzie forms her own plan to escape, she doesn’t realize there’s a more sinister threat looming, something ancient and evil that has clawed its way into Sanctuary from the vacuum of space. And Kenzie might have to team up with her captors to survive—all while beginning to suspect there’s a darker side to the Omnistellar she knows.

I massively enjoyed this hi octane sci fi thriller. It’s got some of my favourite things – yet another evil corporation, monsters, super powers, and space.

I enjoyed the set up and the concept – especially as you spend ages worrying about the jail break only for the whole thing to be taken over by aliens but it totally works!

Kenzie acclimatises pretty fast to the events, which is my only real niggle, and I do like that you can see some things have more of an impact on her. I really liked her relationships with Mia and Rune, both so different but really help show how things change through the book.

I liked Cage, Alexei and Matt – and all the section 5 kids, but the dynamic between those three, Mia and Rune was fun. Plus I thought the jail break was pretty well thought out.

I’m dying for more about Kenzie’s parents, and the background to how everyone got arrested, but especially more on what happens next! I full on NEED book 2 right now.
