Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grades 10 Up—In this second installment (Skyscape, 2013) of the "Guards of the Shadowlands" series, Lela and Malachi are thrust back into the land of the living to protect Earth from the Mazikin, demon creatures who take over the bodies of the living. Once captured by a Mazikin, the host's soul is held captive in a place far worse than hell itself. Things begin to look up when Lela finds the Mazikin nest. She is about to destroy it when a familiar face takes on the likeness of a Mazikin: her mother. Strong language and descriptive violence make this title more suitable for older listeners. Amy McFadden returns to voice Lela's plight as she brings down the Mazikin and expertly articulates Malachi's strong European accent. Fine's knowledge of Rhode Island is evident; the geography of the tiny state is imprinted on the listener. Purchase where Sanctum was popular.—Amanda Schiavulli, Finger Lakes Library System, NY --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

From Booklist

High stakes and heart-pounding action continue in this satisfying sequel to Sanctum (2012). Tough, determined Lela Santos, now returned to earth, is charged with the mission of eliminating soul-stealing Mazikin who seeped out of the dark crevices of the afterlife. In a reversal of roles, Lela is named captain, with Malachi as her lieutenant. When the Mazikin threaten friends, family, and loved ones, Lela’s emotions, loyalty, and leadership are tested at every turn. The on-target narrative deftly balances her street-sharpened edginess with her blossoming self-respect while she embraces a newfound acceptance by her classmates, as well as an awakening sexuality. Grades 8-11. --Jeanne E. Fredriksen

After falling head over heels in love with Malachi Sanctum by Sarah Fine, I expected Fractured to be no different. And I was not disappointed.

This book, instead of being set in the terrifying and dark place of the Shadowlands, it’s set in the human world.

At first I was a bit skeptical about how Sarah would manage to make things interesting (since the human world is such a boring place), but she did not fail in creating a captivating world.

I loved seeing Lela in this book being more emotionally stable, and much more badass. There is no doubt in my mind that Lela can definitely take care of herself. She is strong, she is tough, and she can be undeniably ruthless. Loved her.

Malachi is also different in this book: he’s in the human world, out of his element,; and it was fun seeing him trying to adjust to this. I loved seeing Malachi in the real world, because he was a bit like Lela was in the beginning of Sanctum.

There were some new characters added to this book, and I think that they all added something interesting to the story. There wasn’t an unimportant character in the book.

The way the story seemed to flow, you really had no idea where it was going, and I think that was the best part. You were constantly on your toes because Sarah could throw you a curveball at any moment! It was awesome.

In this book, the romance takes a backseat to everything, and I was happy to see that. I wanted to know if I would have been able to enjoy this book without it, and I did enjoy it. I enjoyed it so much.

Also, HOLY MOTHER OF CLIFFHANGERS! This book has the most devastating cliffhanger ever to exist. I don’t think I’ve ever been this emotionally damaged.

**Warning** Portions of this review will be spoilerish if you haven't read the first book yet, but I will do my best not to reveal any major spoilers for Fractured. Proceed at your own discretion.**

Okay! Let's talk Fractured, the highly anticipated sequel to Sanctum (Guards of the Shadowlands)!

I was thrilled to get an advance copy of Fractured and I went into it with high expectations. The cover alone had me drooling. I wanted it to really wow me and make me forget the things that I didn't like about the first book (the instalove between Malachi and Lela and the fact that they both martyred themselves for someone who didn't really deserve it). I wanted an epic battle between the Mazikin and the guards of the Shadowlands. I wanted to learn more about the Shadowlands and some of the other dimensions there. And I really wanted to see some growth in Malachi and Lela's relationship. Unfortunately, as you can tell from my mild 2.5-3 star rating, while there were things that I liked about it, overall Fractured left me feeling just sort of 'meh.'

Lela and Malachi have been dropped back in Lela's hometown where they are patrolling for the escaped Mazikin. Malachi is now a foreign exchange student and Raphael is his "host father" (ha! loved that) and they are attending Lela's highschool. Life for Lela has returned to normal, as normal as it can be considering she was dead the week before. They are given two new team members to help with the monumental task of defending the world, both of whom are from different dimensions of the Shadowlands. Through them we get to learn a little bit about The Bright City and the Wastelands, both of which sounded fascinating.

I was so scared of reading Fractured. I just knew something was going to happen to one of my favorite characters ever. My gut told me I should be afraid, or Alexa from Colletctions just scared the hell out of me. It can go either way. I was so terrified I couldn't touch the book for almost a month. Then I got over my fears a jumped in. I didn't have to be afraid because WOW, Sarah Fine knows what she's doing. I was so impressed with her writing and how it sucked me in. Once you start reading Fractured you won't be able to stop.

One of the things I liked the most about Fractured were the new characters. Some I adored and some I wanted to strangle with my bare hands. I think that's what Sarah wanted me to feel. Because OMG. In one scene, I wanted to kill someone. AH! I was so mad! I wanted to get inside the book and slap some sense into that character! I love when I feel strong feeling toward characters. It doesn't matter if it's in a positive way or negative way. I just love that I feel that they are real.

I feel that Fractured was a bit scarier than the first book. The Mazikin were bolder and terrifying than in Sanctum also. Every time one of them was mentioned in the book my hair stood on end. With everything that was happening in the book I never saw the twist involving one Mazikin coming. It was kind of a WTF moment actually. It just broke my heart. I can't forget to mention one of my favorite fictional couples, Lila and Malachi. Sigh... Malachi is such an amazing character. Lela is also amazing and strong. We don't see main characters like Lila in books that often. That makes me love her even more.

Fractured was amazing! The ending was perfect, and I can't wait to see what's going to happen in the next book! Too bad we have to wait. But I'll wait as long as I have to. If you haven't read Sanctum you need to ASAP!!! You don't want to miss out on a great series!
