Fractured (Guards of the Shadowlands, #2)Fractured by Sarah Fine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sumarry from 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?


A strong sequel to a series which made most readers grip the book as if it had life! Lela and Malachi will have more to focus and fight for except from their feelings for each other. The Mazikin have plans and even Lela's classmates are not safe anymore.

The novel in an extend is packed with action and strong scenes. Lela is a fighting character, I like that on her, but Malachi also doesn't luck emotions. We are too used on fiction guys who are hot and HOT but we don't usually see the depth of their emotions. Malachi is one of them and despite the mistakes he makes in the book, he finally tries to rendeem for them.

It is obvious that there is bigger picture on the story and only a part of it clears at the ending. The ending is teary and more tearing than the first book! (cries).

But only Lela will be able to solve this mystery. How? Let me read the next book "Chaos" and we'll know!

You can also read my review on "Sanctum" if you are reading this post for the first time.
