Robert J. Crane as always, is a master storyteller. He has got as many secrets as his characters. I can never ever predict the twists and turns nor foresee another bombshell of an ending! When I read Warlord, it felt like I was watching a suspense movie while covering my eyes and yet seeing through the slits of my fingers. This series is truly addicting and I await the next installment with bated breath. The Sanctuary collection is my favorite of all Mr. Crane's books. With the gap between books, I reread the previous books in preparation for the next one. As the story is fast-paced, so is my first reading. Hunger satiated, I savor the book on my second reading. Highly recommended!
