There is strength in numbers, in support and in love. Dev is a powerful, prophesied hybrid meant to be almost invincible and to save the world, but is she meant to be a solo act? From the moment Dev and Wyatt connected, there were sparks, and eh deadly journey they have faced is about to become even more gut-wrenching as their worlds are scarped raw by the blades of evil. A dark and secretive Magical Sect is slithering out of its lair to become the number one leader and powerbase, anywhere! ...more

"I've learned the hard way that tears accelerate nothing and dampen plenty."

This is the second book I have read from Madhuri and she still manages to blow me away. Her writing style is so badass but surprisingly easy to get through. Madhuri gives life to every single character that it feels life they grow out of the pages and go through their lives around me. This book started off right where the first one ended and it's intensity kept growing from

Wow. I was fully expecting to be a little lost as I did not get a chance to read The Girl - but there was no need to in order to fall in love with The Boy.

Madhuri Blaylock did an amazing job of catching the reader up with the story line without boring those who read The Girl.

This story read more like a love story of the many different unique characters then a science fiction novel. Madhuri does a wonderful job of blending the other

What a great book in a great trilogy! I believe I enjoyed The Boy even more than The Girl. Such a wonderful group of characters and relationships. The addition of elements of the Ramyan ways definitely furthered both. Can't wait for part III. Keep on writing, Madhuri!

This review is long overdue but it is finally here!! I think that I will love anything that comes from this author because it was so freaking good!!!! If you haven't read the first book then STOP and read it.

Now if you have lets fangirl together :).

The Boy picks up right after the ending of The Girl. Everything has changed and sides has to be chosen. The whole clan's lives are changed. That is all I'm going to say on tha

I loved The Girl, but the Boy was even better. In the first book, we were getting to know the characters and the history. The second book was nonstop action. The conflict amongst the characters (and themselves) created so much confusion that I did not want to put the book down. I wanted to see what happened next. I loved the contrast . . . good/bad, love/hate, life/after-life . . . nothing was ever what it seemed. Dev and Wyatt are two stubborn, love-sick fools. Ryker keeps you guessing. Ava is ...more

Enchanting story! The only problem with the book is that it ended!

I loved Book One and was shocked to realize that Book Two was even better! From start to finish the book is engaging - it is hard not to wonder what will happen on the next page. The story was set brilliantly in Book One and yet the development in Book Two was unbelievable. The characters all pull you in - you either love or despise them. And the variety in the types of magicals is otherworldly. I am awed by the author's ability t

THE BOY, Book II in The Sanctum trilogy, is a great sequel to THE GIRL, Book I.
The character development in Book II is perfect. The parallel dimensions are inspiring. The structure and tempo could not be better.
Madhuri's characters are real. We feel their emotional and physical pain.
Again the Vampire Darby, the ancient, powerful and beautiful Queen of New York, must be a fan favourite.
And who would not want to be a Ramyan and exist everywhere and forever. This concept may or not be real. Who is

Ms. Blaylock does it again! Her second book, “The Boy” picks up where the suspense left us in “The Girl”. Yet again, and through a series of twists and turns of emotions and tension, Dev and Wyatt come together again in a spectacular way! A little bit racier (!!!), and with all the same likable, and utterly dislikable, players also weaving their own intertwined webs, “The Boy” is sure to keep you up all night reading!

I ripped through this in two sittings (which I guess is not surprising since The Girl went pretty much the same way)... The sassy dialogue crackles off the page and the action never stops. Each character is more fierce and dangerous than the next. Looking forward to #3 and maybe a spinoff series for my fave character Darby the "Southern belle from hell" ....?

I forgot to update this when I finished it. I gotta say I love the parallel between the endings of the first and second book. I love how much we got of Ryker and Jools and Darby. Queen Ava Breslin continues to be the baddest bitch in the game and I can't wait to see how this crazy story ends!

Madhuri Blaylock followed up the first book in the series in a sensationally stellar way. She was able to encapsulate all that was Wyatt and transform him into something truly magical and inspiring while taking Ryker and having him become more endearing to us. Each character grows and develops a sense of sense as the book goes on. Each has their own trials and tribulations to go through and their struggles are felt on the pages and through the words. The story will move you as we get to see the ...more

Where do I start with this book? The Boy by Madhuri Blaylock is another amazing read! I enjoyed the first book so much and I was really looking forward to this book. I had high expectations and Madhuri met every single one! The Boy has it all! Super awesome characters, a great story, magical creatures, good guys, bad guys, and super cute relationships! What more do you need?

After reading the first book in the Sanctum series, I had a pretty good idea of what to expect: war, crazies, supernaturals, and some kick-ass heroines. And the second book delivers. We get to see more of Jools, who quickly matures as the Clayworths and their Sanctum allies prepare for war against the Breslins. Her relationship with Ryker gets more developed, which I love. And we get to see more of Darby Winthrop, who is quickly becoming my favorite character with her Southernisms and attitude. ...more

At the end of "The Girl" the entire world of Ryker, Jools, Wyatt, and Dev is in a state of complete and utter chaos. The Sanctum is well and truly split, as houses are forced to choose sides for the coming war. "The Boy" picks up mere seconds after the closing scene sees Dev jump through a portal with Wyatt tied to her back. Wyatt is hanging on by the merest of threads, his life hanging in the balance while Dev makes a last ditch effort to save his life. Unfortunately, she didn't quite get what ...more

I am pleased to review Madhuri Blaylock’s The Sanctum Book Two: The Boy as part of the Diverse Book Tours. In typical series fashion, Book Two begins where Book One ends – with a virtually indestructible Dev rushing to save the life of the one she loves – “the Boy” – Wyatt Clayworth. Will he survive? Will he be the same? Will there be justice for the actions taken against him, his family and their Academy?

The Boy provides answers to these questions and more. While Dev and Wyatt continue to embar

I burned through the second installation in the Sanctum Trilogy quickly. It gave me what I was hoping for and more.

The first book mentioned Dev's - Dev being the hybrid angel/demon protagonist of the stories and the catalyst for the major upheaval in the Sanctum world - training as a Ramyan warrior and hinted at legendary martial artists (I at once thought of Shaolin Monks and the immortals spoken of in the Tao at their first mention) and that's a sweet spot for me. I started on this series late

Remember me reviewing The Girl which was packed with intense action? I did confessed about my unlikelihood of paranormal romance. Madhuri, again proved my own conscience wrong.

Well The Boy just doubles the fun. Madhuri's accustom to a reader writing does wonders. It hooks a reader, grabs his attention just as one is on an edge of wherever he currently resides, until one is done with it. It straightway picks where the first one landed and takes a reader to another unforgettable experience. I was

Amazing! I loved the continuation of Dev and Wyatt’s story! Watching the struggle that Wyatt goes through to recover and regain himself as he develops into an even more amazing warrior was truly great! His journey to re-discover himself and his relationships with those closest to him was an awesome way to even further develop this character. He has a real quality about him that makes you believe him. Dev’s journey of self while watching Wyatt t

'The Boy' is a good sequel to the series, It starts off immediately after the ending in the first book 'The girl' and we get to find out what happens to Wyatt and Dev, and of course how the rest of the group handles their absence.

The author has written another master piece for "The Sanctum" series, we get to learn about the Ramyan culture and a bit of their secrets,more will hopefully be revealed in the upcoming book.

Can't really say much about the book without ruining it for you so i'l keep it

I enjoyed the first book in The Sanctum trilogy but I enjoyed the second one even more. The Boy by Madhuri Blaylock starts off pretty much where The Girl left off. Wyatt is dying from a mortal wound inflicted by Max Breslin and Dev has brought him to the Ramyan hoping he can be saved.
Back in the Sanctum world Jools is now acting head of the New York branch, Darby's her usual Southern Vampire self, the Breslins are a-plotting and a-scheming, and someone is impersonating Ryker, killing Magicals le

Going to repeat what I said for Book 1, why didn't I know about these books before!!! This book picks up where Book 1 leaves off and takes you on an adventure that I don't want to ever end! The way Book 1 ended had me wanting to know what happened to Wyatt and in turn to see what happens with him and Dev. In this part you get all that and more, so much more. Everyone is back in this story including some new characters and they're all more than just supporting characters. What also made this ...more

I wasn't as lucky with The Girl as I was with The Boy. As soon as I finished The Girl I was able to dive right into The Boy. I knew that I was going to need to read it before I was half-way done with The Girl. Being the super genius I am I bought The Boy before even finishing The Girl so it would be readily available.
I am so very glad I did.
The Boy did not disappoint.
The ending of The Girl had me anxious to find out what happened to Wyatt. This story revolves around the undying love between Wya

Madhuri Blaylock has done it again. "The Boy", book 2 of the The Sanctum series, is even better than the first ("The Girl"), and I thought the first was superb. I don't want to give anything away about the story as it is picking up at the cliff hanger ending from the first. So, I'll just say, the writing is sophisticated, the characters are well-developed, the plot is intriguing, complex, and at times heart wrenching, and the sex scenes (and there are a few!), well, I'll say it, they are just ...more

What an Amazing Science Fiction Story! I was pulled in From the beginning and am amazed of well written abd descriptive the story is! I was afraid to start on book two because I haven't read book one (The Girl). It did not matter because from experience I was not bored and I still understood what was going on without having to refer to book one.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fantastic Science fiction read! Come along and discover the world of The Sanctum! Journey through

Madhuri Blaylock's The Boy follows on directly from the first in the series, The Girl. After such an excellent start with book 1, book 2 proved to be the perfect follow up. Whilst the action and intrigue continue,  I loved learning more about the characters and the development of Jools and Wyatt especially held my interest. I can't wait until the next instalment of this magical series.

Goodreads win. Will read and review once received.

I will say I have not read the first book, but I still enjoyed the second book. Also, I plan on reading the first book in the series. The characters in the group were so great and the relationships were so interesting. I loved this authors way of writing. It definitely grabbed my attention and pulled me into the book.

Even better than the first! This book had me in my feels from the start. The ongoing relationships between Dev and Wyatt and, Jools and Ryker had me all over the place. By the end of the book, I had to lie down from the roller coaster emotions so expertly written by Madhuri. The final book in the series comes out today (Feb 4) and I can't wait to read it!

The cliffhanger in The Girl comes full circle in The Boy. I'm almost afraid to write a review; I'm so jazzed about the way The Boy ends (and don't want to spoil the whole thing for you)! I'll just say this: the baddest quartet in recent literature is in full effect. When is book 3 coming out? I need to see how this ends!
