Fractured (Guards of the Shadowlands #2) Reviews
*Genre* Young Adult, Fantasy
Fractured is the second installment in the Guards of the Shadowlands series by author Sarah Fine. Fine has moved her story from the darkness of the Shadowlands, to the human world where things are about ready to get pretty damn interesting. One thing remains the same; Fine's world is dark, dangerous, gritty, action-packed, and at times, heartbreaking. I'll keep this as spoiler free as I can, but I will say that I would recommend that you pick ...more

Another cliffhanger?!! Really?! I seem to be on a roll with these lately. But that doesn’t change the fact that I still loved this ‘middle book’. And typical of middle books in a trilogy…Fractured was no different from many of our favourites as it was full to the brim with angst. But again, that didn’t change the fact that I had a hard time putting this book down.
There will be some spoilers from the pre ...more
Too high-school and very predictable.
I just finished this book a few mins ago so my emotions are fresh writing this. OMG! is all I can say to the entire book. I'm giving this book 4 stars because at certain points and that ending was just so pathetic. I expected Lela to be strong all the time, but she is human and allows her emotions to show and sometimes she acts like a baby. Sometimes she jumps to conclusions. Sometimes she wallows in self pity and I just want to punch her in the face.
'Fractured' starts off really slow. Not slow ...more
One thing is for sure, Sarah Fine knows what she is doing. (Contains spoilers for 'Sanctum'.)
This book is more badass than this gif.
This is book gritty, authentic and creepy BUT still manages to convey a very convincing romance, great character/relationship development and pull off the high school world (far trickier than a circle of hell in my mind) with perfect balance.
Lela is back at high school, this time with Malachi at her side, but now they not only have to fight Mazakin but also manage s ...more
I thought I wouldn't have anything to say about this book but my review ended up being sooooo long lol
Every time I start a second book in series my biggest concern is whether it will have the dreaded “middle book syndrome” where the author isn’t sure what to do so the characters flounder about and barely any headway is made in the actual plot. I think there were times when Fractured teetered on having it, but I enjoyed the story overall and it was a solid installment to the series.
One of the big ...more
A girl could easily sell her soul for one of Malachi's kisses.
Review to come.
OMG, the pain, I can't take the pain in my heart, it's too hard to bare!! It's tearing me up inside!!! I want to tare my room to shreds and SCREAM!!!!!
I just need to know one thing
But still, after all that pain and suffering I still LOVED THIS BOOK SO FREAKING MUCH!!!
Sarah Fine has done it again in this thrilling, heart pounding, darkly dangerous, but oh so amazing adventure, that took me on a ride of ups and downs. FRACTURED was brilliant, absolutely brilliant ...more
