Sanctum by Sarah Fine
Publisher: Amazon Children's Publishing 
Publication Date: October 16th, 2012

"My plan: Get into the city. Get Nadia. Find a way out. Simple."

A week ago, seventeen-year-old Lela Santos's best friend, Nadia, killed herself. Today, thanks to a farewell ritual gone awry, Lela is standing in paradise, looking upon a vast gated city in the distance – hell. No one willingly walks through the Suicide Gates, into a place smothered in darkness and infested with depraved creatures. But Lela isn't just anyone – she's determined to save her best friend's soul, even if it means sacrificing her eternal afterlife.

As Lela struggles to find Nadia, she's captured by the Guards, enormous, not-quite-human creatures that patrol the dark city's endless streets. Their all-too-human leader, Malachi, is unlike them in every way except one: his deadly efficiency. When he meets Lela, Malachi forms his own plan: get her out of the city, even if it means she must leave Nadia behind. Malachi knows something Lela doesn't – the dark city isn't the worst place Lela could end up, and he will stop at nothing to keep her from that fate.

Why oh why?

Ever since I read my friend Alexa's brilliant review on Sanctum last Wednesday, I have been looking forward to this book. You can find Alexa's review here!

I love original books that surround mysterious and exciting settings. This book sounds like it has all that I would enthusiastically enjoy in a book. I hope I find it is about sacrifice and the importance of real friendship like Alexa did when she read it. So excited to read this book! 

Thanks for reading!
