Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

Shiloh isn’t adjusting well to her new life in Ironbridge. Life isn’t how she always imagined it would be, and every day is harder than the last. Things only get worse when a small family on their way to a settlement called “Sanctuary” shows up on Shiloh’s doorstep looking for an escort the rest of the way. But Sanctuary isn’t all its supposed to be.

When they find themselves trapped, every second becomes a fight for survival. Can they find a way out before one of them falls to a mad tyrant? Or will their little group be broken up forever?

Sanctuary is the second book in the Titanomachy Series, and it starts off with our protagonist, Shiloh, who has trouble adjusting to her new life in Ironbridge. Shiloh’s past has left her scarred emotionally. The times when she reflects to her early childhood are a bit heartbreaking when you compare them to her current life, and how alone this makes her feel sometimes. She cares deeply for her sister Rilei, and it’s a welcome change to see a sisterly bond represented so predominantly in a book.

The worldbuilding was phenomenal, and I really enjoyed getting to know Shiloh and the other characters. Despite not having read the first book, I didn’t really feel like I was missing out on too much, and I coudl follow the story easily.

An excellent, recommended read for fans of fantasy and steampunk.
