Summary
In the week since Lela returned to Rhode Island, local news has been dominated by chilling sightings of human-like creatures running on all fours.

At night they hunt for the Mazikin nest along with two new Guards. With an enemy determined to separate soul from body, Lela must decide how much she's willing to sacrifice to protect those she loves

Review
  • Grades 8-11 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. -- Fredriksen, Jeanne E. (Reviewed 11-15-2013) (Booklist, vol 110, number 6)
  • At the end of Sanctum (2012), sweethearts Lela and Malachi found themselves returned to the world of the living to track down the evil, soul-destroying Mazikin that had escaped from the dark city of suicides Malachi had protected. Back in suburban Rhode Island, Lela needs to navigate the end of her senior year even as she acts as Captain of a Guard unit that must work at night to track and banish the Mazikin. Joining her and Malachi are Jim, from the Blinding City of addicts and thieves, and Henry, from the Wasteland, that section of the Shadowlands reserved for murderers. Archangel Raphael provides intermittent help and healing but never as much as Lela would like. Per the now-standard formula of paranormal-romance middle volumes, Fine provides a nominal reason to separate Lela and Malachi--here, Malachi's fear that his love for Lela will cause him to make bad decisions--and stretch out the sexual tension. This contrivance is made less irritating than it might be by the teens' involvement in the student body of Lela's high school and its shifting romantic relationships. Lela has to admit that the attention hunky, normal Ian pays her is pretty appealing. Alternating high school banality with the surreal danger of the Guards' mission, Fine kicks it up a notch when Lela encounters the mother who abandoned her, now possessed by a Mazikin. Between the expanded worldbuilding and well-paced suspense, Fine presents a sturdy-enough bridge to carry readers to Book 3. (Paranormal romance. 14 & up)(Kirkus Reviews, September 15, 2013)
