BOOK REVIEW: "Sacred (Guardians #2)" by Samantha Long
Sophie has been attacked by demons, destroyed a nest of vampires, and lived through the death of someone close to her. Now she and her friends have been rescued by the Society and taken to a secret island base to train. While they desperately search for leads on where Akeldama may be holding Lilli prisoner, Sophie tries to keep Tristan at arms length. She doesn't need anything to distract her from finding her best friend, or so she tells herself.
Then the unthinkable happens: one of the Society's own has betrayed the Guardians, selling their secrets to the demons and attacking them where they should feel safest, as Sophie foretold in a dream. In the end, Sophie's greatest enemy could be her own fears, and she faces a decision that could push Tristan and her friends away forever.
After the cliffhanger ending of Awakening, I eagerly opened Sacred, hoping that it, being a sequel, would not be disappointing.
From page one you're dragged right back into Sophie's story, where emotions are running high, secrets abound and deception lurks in the shadows.
Each character has their own part in this story, even the missing Lilli. Tristan is my favorite, after Sophie, and his devotion to her is a sweet spot in the middle of such a dark narrative.
This book is so fast-paced, I was actually upset. I wanted it to keep going! Mrs. Long is truly a force to be reckoned with in the YA world.
