Sanctum: Blackwater Pack, Book 1 Audible Hörbuch – Ungekürzte Ausgabe
A survivor on the run
After refusing the laws of her sadistic pack, Skye Markham barely escapes with her life, seeking sanctuary with the feared Blackwater pack. Hunted by her former Alpha and his soldiers, she’s determined to create a life even though she knows they will come for her.
An alpha with a pack to protect
As the next alpha in line, Remy Holt has spent years guarding the Blackwater pack and his family from those who seek to seize control and destroy them. The last thing he needs or wants is Skye Markham and the dangers she brings with her adding to the stress on his pack, but his wolf has a different opinion. He wants her, and after one moment that shouldn't have been possible, he knows he’ll never be able to let her go.
A bond unlike any other
Skye thought she was finally safe, but as her bond with Remy strengthens, the shifter world starts to break apart at the seams. Missing shifters, a dying population, and pack wars are all causing their sanctuary to crumble around them, and Skye is trapped in the middle of it all. Someone is out to destroy the pack and if they succeed, there will bring down everything Remy has sought to protect and for Skye...maybe there is no such thing as a sanctuary.

The story follows a young female shifter who has been born into the lowest possible rank in a wolf pack – an omega. Skye learned the hard way that the word safety has no place in her vocabulary. And her packmates don’t ever let her forget it. I would have loved to climb into my kindle and have “words” with a few of those guys. The beginning of this book is nothing for weak nerves. When the situation escalates due to an unexpected change in leadership, Adalynne Markham has no choice but to get herself and her daughter out, even if they die trying. They end up seeking sanctuary with the Blackwater Pack in Washington, and from here on out, the story is about Skye finding herself, her place in the new pack, and maybe a bit more than that.
I absolutely adore Skye’s character. Despite the terrible hand life dealt her, she’s anything but weak and determined not to bow to her traumatic past. I loved seeing the chains crack a little more with each day until she full-blown shatters them. She’s one of those characters you can’t help but connect to. I cried, fought, laughed, and loved with her through every chapter.
And the same goes for the rest of the gang, our beloved alpha-to-be in particular. Hold on to your book boyfriends as tight as you can because Remy’s going to push them off their respective thrones faster than you can say Blackwater. I have read my fair share of shifter books and totally love my alpha males, but he’s an entirely different species. With Remy, Hannah absolutely nailed it. He’s definite alpha material, taking on his responsibilities with a demeanor that goes beyond his years. At the same time, he’s playful, at times cocky, throws the occasional party, and does what guys do in high school. He’s one of the very few guys that aren’t afraid of their feelings. He’s possessive, protective, kind, and caring, and to top it off, he’s hotter than the sun. He stole my heart within five pages of meeting him.
Don’t even get me started on the romance in this book (between Remy and Skye or otherwise), or this review will be more like an essay. But let me tell you this: what they have is what every girl wants.
Sanctum is a sort of introduction to the story, the shifter world, the characters, the different packs, and sets the stage for the showdown with this unknown threat that has female shifters disappearing all over the country. The plot is well-paced and laced with angst, humor, love, and action. A diverse set of secondary characters with equally well-developed backgrounds add the little extra to the story. I love every single one of them, and I can’t wait to see where the next book takes us.
Long story short, this book has everything you could possibly want. The first time I read it, I went through it in one go. I couldn’t have put it down if I tried. If you like shifter books, this one is right up your alley. And if you’ve never read anything like it, you can’t go wrong with this one
I was heartbroken at the beginning of the book but the rest of the book made it all better!
I was so invested in this book I just couldn't put it down! I love the storyline, the relationships and just all of the characters (with the exception of the people I love to loathe - you know who you are).
This book made me feel so many things! It made me genuinely laugh out loud, it made me cry and it made me angry.
I absolutely can't wait to read Broken 🐺❤️ I'm shipping Larkin and Rhodes so hard and I'm definitely gonna continue on with this series.
This book is absolutely one of my favorite reads in 2020 and for everyone who hasn't read it yet: You should!!!
Despite some of the heavy topics with which the book starts, I all but devoured "Sanctum". I fell in love with the characters and had to laugh out loud at a few scenes (e.g. imagining a couple of wolf shifters watching Twilight :D)
What I especially loved about this book was that McBride really takes time to build up the story – especially in YA literature, I sometimes feel like authors rush.
I think three books, plus a novella, are currently planned for this series. I'm already looking forward to rereading this book when the next in the series comes out!
Remy ist definitiv unter den Top 3 meiner Book Boyfriends gelandet.
Hannah McBride hat sich mit ihrem Debüt selbst übertroffen. Ich kann die Bücher kaum abwarten und freue mich mehr über den Blackwater Pack zu lesen.

Sanctum tells the story of Skye. A 17 year old wolf shifter who is living in a pack who treat the women wolves horrifically. Kept as an Omega, the bottom of the pack, Skye knows her future contains violence. However her and her Mom escape at the last minute and have to try and find their way in a new, nicer pack. Always expecting the worst of everybody, Skye has to learn to trust again and her new alpha Remy will do anything in his power to protect her and make sure nobody hurts her again.
I can’t even tell you how much I loved this book. Hannah has such a brilliant writing style. Right at the beginning when Skye is with her violent pack, I was both loving the book but at the same time not wanting to read it because of the violence that I knew was bound to happen. I’ve never had such a strong emotional reaction to characters so fast in a book before. This was all within the first three chapters of the book and that really shows how incredible a storyteller Hannah really is, to make me feel like this so fast. The more I read, the more I loved this book.
Before picking up Sanctum I was in such a reading slump. Nothing was grabbing my attention. I’d read a few pages and then put the book down. Right from the start of Sanctum I couldn’t put the book down. I spent the entire day sat reading and I didn’t even realise the time ticking by. To me that truly shows how amazing this book is. Right away I was in love with both of the main characters and I cannot praise Hannah enough for the fantastic characterisation that goes on in this book. Skye has been through some dark stuff in her past and the way Hannah dealt with those issues was utterly brilliant. She really captured Skye’s journey into healing and didn’t shy away from having scenes that were really hard-hitting and emotional. I can’t praise her enough for this.
Remy is officially one of my all time favourite book boys ever. He is the alpha male but he’s very different to any other alpha male’s in shifter books I have read. The reason I don’t enjoy reading wolf shifter books is too many of them have the alpha males being too controlling and think they can control the girl. Hannah instead wrote an absolutely perfect alpha male, who is brilliantly protective while also being the sweetest most loving guy in the world. He was happy to step in and protect Skye but he gave her the control in every situation and was there for her if and when she needed him and that was perfect to me.
Nothing I write in this review (and I know it’s a long rambling, fangirling review) will ever actually do justice to this perfect book. I read this book so damn fast and when I finished, started reading it all over again immediately. I have never done that with a book… ever. This has definitely become one of my all time favourite books ever. It’s fast paced and action packed and filled to the brim with the most swoon-worthy, heart-melting romance ever. I cannot recommend this book enough. I think anyone who is a sucker for romance needs to read this book. It is one of the most brilliant romances I have ever read. If you love paranormal romance this is also going to be the perfect book for you. This book is right up there with Jennifer L Armentrout’s as my all time favourites, which is a huge compliment as usually nothing comes close to my love for Jennifer’s books. I can’t wait to read the next book. I am so here for it and I can’t wait. Sanctum was, in a word, perfection.
This was a way for the writer to prolong the story but only made it agony to read and I had to push my self to finish the book.
I believe it will be the same for the other books in this series.
This a book appears to be aimed at YA's and it shows from the way the writer deals with the sexual intimacy between Remi and Skye. It appears to be the prospective of a much older adult not a teenager.
This is without a doubt the very best shifter romance book I’ve EVER read.
I can’t believe this is Hannah’s first book!!
I can’t explain how amazing these characters are, how well written the plot is.... there’s sensitive subjects dealt with, but if anything, the authors way of handling them will undoubtedly help those of us faced with these issues.
Every time u thought “oh that’s kinda predictable, I know what’s gonna happen next...” the author added a new rich layer to the character development and to the story itself! And I found myself diving deeper in to the amazing world Skye lives in.
Skye & Remy are fantastic characters, by the end of this book I guarantee you’ll be just like me: CHOMPING AT THE BIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK!! Katy, Larkin & Rhodes are amazing characters, that I found myself just as interested and invested in as much as Skye & Remy.
I cannot recommend this book enough!
I wish there was a higher than 5 star rating!
Congratulations to the amazing author on an amazing first book.
You’ve got a fan for life! ❤️❤️
I have no complaints, any frustration, annoyance, anger etc.. is what the author intentionally provoked from (in my opion), great story telling. I also laughed, smiled a lot & found i was easily able to connect, identify with and emotionally invest in the characters. It has been a while since i've read a story & cared enough about the characters to really want to know what happens next.
All a girl could ask for really ;)
