This week I am waiting on. . .

(Guards of the Shadowlands #2)
By: Sarah Fine
Publisher: Skyscape
Release Date: October 29th, 2013

Sanctum (Guardians of the Shadowlands #1) was such a huge (and very pleasant) surprise for me!  I'm ashamed to say that I passed it over when the arcs were being offered and have been kicking myself ever since.
The world Sarah Fine created in this series is original, spectacular and all around awesome.  Lela was a kick-ass heroine and Malachi was as swoon-worthy as they come!
Needless to say, I'm dying for the sequel and dying to know what's in store for Lela & Malachi now that they have returned to the land of the living to deal with the deadly (and creepy) Mazikin!
The covers for these books are great too...I especially like this new one!
Check out my review for Sanctum (book #1) here.
Synopsis on Goodreads:
 In the week since Lela returned to Rhode Island as Captain of the Guard with Malachi as her second in command, local news has been dominated by chilling sightings of human-like creatures running on all fours. Lela knows there’s only one explanation: the Mazikin have arrived in the land of the living.

Needing to maintain the appearance of a normal life for her foster mother, her probation officer, and her classmates, Lela returns to Warwick High along with Malachi. At night they secretly hunt for the Mazikin nest. To assist, two new Guards from very different parts of the Shadowlands are assigned to Lela’s unit, including the bad boy Jim, who repeatedly challenges Lela's authority. Lela struggles to keep all her Guards on the right side of the law, but their mistakes come at a terrible cost.

As one painful revelation follows another and the Mazikin start targeting those closest to her, Lela finds herself more vulnerable than she’s ever been, wanting a future more than she ever has. With an enemy determined to separate soul from body, one question remains: how much is she willing to sacrifice to protect those she loves?

  2. I had seen the ARC for this book in NetGalley, and it sounds intriguing enough but I haven't read the first book, so I'll have to get to that one first!
