REVIEW: Cry Sanctuary by Sadie Hart

***This book was originally reviewed for GraveTells.***
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Summary:

Holly has a unique insight into a serial killer that is haunting Sanctuary Falls, having once escaped his clutches herself. Due to that event, the werewolf has made her his ultimate target and changed his game to taunt her. Caine is the alpha of the pack “The Hunter” is terrorizing to play with Holly and he’s determined to not only protect his pack, but the hound he’s come to respect and care for. Together, they’ll face a horrible killer that wants nothing more than to scare Holly enough to make her run, for he loves the chase. Cry Sanctuary is a must read!

Thoughts:

The books opens up with a bang as Holly is at the killer’s mercy. This implies that this story will be a darker one than the first one was, and it certainly lives up to expectations. The villain is a real twisted bastard that you just ache to see get what he deserves. The investigation and conflict as a whole felt like I was reading an episode of Criminal Minds or something, which I thought was actually really cool. Despite occasionally seeing from the awful villain’s POV (which thankfully never gets very graphic), I really enjoyed the case in this book.

I really loved seeing characters from the first story. It lends a sense of continuity and familiarity to the series and just draws you in and hooks you. That being said, you do not need to have read the first book to enjoy this one, though I definitely recommend it to fully appreciate the significance of certain details.

The romance had a bit of a buildup rather than a lust at first sight kind of deal, so the teasing in the early phase of the relationship is titillating and just as toe curling as the love scenes later. It was a great combination of sweet and sensual.

Even better than the first, this sequel grabbed my attention from page one and never let go. You’ll be holding your breath and on the edge of your seat throughout and will be unable to put this book down. I definitely think that Cry Sanctuary is a must read!
