Something is strange about the location "The Sanctuary" and the good guys all have serious weaknesses. The Bad Men are seriously BAD and no good outcome can be forseen. Connolly stirs the pot and starting at a slow simmer but you won't be able to leave the pot for if you do.. it will boil over. This story is a Gotcha and there is no way... one can put it aside until the last page is exposed and the magic in this brew brought forth. Recommed it as a thriller with a bit of the occult mixed in.
