My rating: 5 of 5 stars
They may have escaped Sanctuary, but they are far from free
Containment, book 2 in the Sanctuary series is every bit as thrilling and suspenseful as book 1. I give the book five aliens for awesome sci-fi 👽👽👽👽👽 and I don’t usually even like sci-fi. Containment starts up a few weeks after Sanctuary ends, while the group of young people (a.k.a. anomalies) that escaped from Sanctuary on the alien spacecraft are drifting around in space and trying to decide where to go.
They are still wanted by Omnistellar, the largest corporation in the Galaxy. So they are afraid that anywhere they land, even if it isn’t controlled by Omnistellar, that the reward for them will be a huge incentive for whomever is in charge to turn them in. So for the time being they are just drifting.
They are using up what supplies they do have and getting very short with each other due to stress, PTSD and limited space as well as being stuck on the spaceship of the aliens that killed everyone on Sanctuary and tried to kill them. A constant reminder of what they went through.
Kenzie’s anomaly is an affinity for language and and she is able to pick up new written and spoken languages extremely fast. However, the alien language on the ship is another story, in the weeks she has been there she has only picked up bits and pieces, but stress has made it hard to focus. However, when a signal is picked up she is able to focus enough to figure out that more aliens have found the signal being broadcast from their ship and are on the way to find them.
Our team of Heroes knows that they can’t allow the aliens to find the ship. However, Luna, whose anomaly is an affinity for technology, has been unable to locate and turn off the signal. So they know the ship must be destroyed or they will lead the aliens right to themselves and their galaxy.
The story is different than the first in that our team goes on a few different adventures instead of just running from an unknown entity like in the first. Though it is every bit as good as the first book. There is a lot of intrigue as well, involving certain characters and whether they are helping or harming our group of Heroes. There’s is tension in the romance between Kenzie and Cage, and all sorts of unexpected twists and turns.
Overall It was a book I couldn’t put down, until I absolutely had to go to sleep or miss work. Then I picked it up tonight and finished it as soon as I could. I loved it. It was totally worth the price!
