Publisher's Summary

Narrowly escaping death at the hands of the Magistrate, Mira travels west, toward the coast. With three weakened human fugitives accompanying her, she searches for the mythical land of Sanctuary.
After encountering a pack of wolf shifters, headed by the charismatic - and brazen - Stryker, Mira learns that Sanctuary is real after all. Caldera Grove: home of the Otherkin. Hidden in the mouth of a dormant volcano, it has protected its residents from humans since the early days following the great cataclysm. For Mira - a vampire - Caldera Grove is a land of peace; an escape from the relentless persecution of the humans who once enslaved her, and an end to the daily struggle and bloodshed of being a gladiator.
For the humans accompanying her, Caldera Grove means death. Humans, greedy and untrustworthy creatures, are destroyed before they can penetrate its borders.
To plead her case for entry into Caldera, Mira must abandon her companions, albeit temporarily, and follow Stryker into the heart of the city. What she finds within Caldera Grove presents her with an unenviable decision between her own desires for freedom and peace, or honor and the human companions who risked it all for her.

Mira is back.

I loved book 1 and was so excited when this came to audio, while I enjoyed it I thought it was missing the intenseness that book 1 had.

Mira is on the run and trying to reach sanctuary with the humans that helped her, only thing is she has to escape the people that are chasing her, and deal with the fact that humans aren't allowed in sanctuary. How can she get her friends into Sanctuary and who are the wolves following her too?

Mira is as awesome as always. She has been through hell and only wants to live a safe life. Her feelings about humans has changed a lot since her captivity and she knows that if they aren't allowed in sanctuary, then she won't go either. I loved that about her. She may be kick ass but she has a heart too.

The plot was relatively fast paced. It wasn't as action packed as the first book but it still held my attention throughout. I liked the otherkin angle and loved the wolves, though I loathe a love triangle and am really hoping this isn't going down that road!!!

In all, this was a really good second book. I wanted a little more action but we get a bit more character development, which I suppose is a good trade off ;)

This is a different narrator than book 1 and while she did a great job, I found her to be a little flat on the action scenes. I needed a little more pizzazz from her to enjoy it thoroughly.

*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affects my thoughts.*

Sanctuary or Bust

What a wonderful, scary, exciting, magical, and complex world K.A. and Katie Salidas have delivered yet again.

This time Mira, former gladiator vampire, is having to take on more responsibility for not just herself but also for the humans who helped her escape as they search for the possibly mythical Sanctuary. Little do they know what and who they will stumble upon in their journey.

The way freedom is portrayed by use of Mira's star gazing is lovely.

While I am still leery of Lucian's motives, I am growing more attached to him and with the addition of Stryker what is a girl to do, but Mira is not the swooning type, well... mostly not.

The narrator has changed from book 1. Kerri McCann does a very good job with the voices, inflections and personalities. Especially when the naked shifter/werewolf walks up to Mira, I could literally see Mira's jaw drop.

This audiobook was provided at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.
