Sanctuary by Matthew Mather – This sequel to Mather’s Nomad joins Jessica and some of her fellow survivors struggling on a savage Earth that has been destroyed by the direct and catastrophic impact of Nomad that knocked the Earth out of its obit. The impact also fractured the planet, caused the oceans to flood the continents and filled the atmosphere with dust and toxic substances that destroyed the climate. The entire infrastructure of civilization was destroyed and Jessica and her small band of survivors struggle with frigid subzero temperatures and desperation to find eatable food and safe drinking water. They are also vulnerable to savage attacks from other despondent human beings trying to survive. Mather is a very good story teller and he subjects his readers to compelling and devastating violence against Jessica and her motely group of desperate companions. There are many very interesting characters in this story as well as shocking twists of plot. It’s a wild, but also interesting ride and I enjoyed Sanctuary very much. Of course, the reader should read Nomad before reading this book. ( )

A new world arises from the ashes of the old… But the fight for survival has only begun. In the Day of the Nomad, oceans flooded the continents, the earth split open and poured darkness into the skies. Jessica Rollins survived, but at what cost? The key to humanity’s survival may lie in the backpack she recovered from her father, in the mysterious data he collected more than thirty years before. His final words to her circle around and around in her head--just who is Ufuk Erdogmus? And what is...sanctuary?
