Sanctuary

By Christine Gardner

Young adult, Sci-Fi | Paperback, eBook


What if you couldn't go outside during the day because the sun would burn you to a crisp in no time at all? Patric lives in Thrallia, in 2493, a modern city protected from the scorching sun and unbearable conditions of the outside world. An historian, he has heard of a people called the Moles, who once lived in an underground city nearby, but doesn't believe they actually existed. Then his friend Derek discovers a strange girl imprisoned in the quarter where the Supers, rulers of Thrallia, live. Sanctuary is a sci-fi novel for young adults, telling the story of two very different civilizations in the year 2493 AD. The Thrallians are descended from mainstream society; they have blended all racial differences and are bred in laboratories in order to guarantee all citizens will uphold peace and harmony in Thrallia. The Centrals are descended from the street kids of the 20th century, who lived in the underground subways. They live on whatever they can forage and their society is primitive in comparison with that of Thrallia. There is very little interaction between the two societies and most of the Thrallians are not aware of the Centrals' existence until Derek and Patric are forced to make a decision which will change everything. And risk their lives.
