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.

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 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 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 dragged my heart Each book gets better and 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 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???
