The author of National Book Award finalist Skin Hunger, Kathleen Duey continues her breathtaking Resurrection of Magic series with Sacred Scars.

Sadima, Franklin, and Somiss, driven out of Limòri by a suspicious fire, are living in a cave hidden within the cliffs that overlook the city. Somiss is convinced the dark passages of the caves were the home of ancient magicians, and his obsession with restoring magic deepens. Sadima dreams of escape - for her, for Franklin, and for the orphaned street boys Somiss has imprisoned in a crowded cage. Somiss claims he will teach these boys magic, that they will become his first students, but Sadima knows he is lying.

Generations later, Hahp is struggling to survive the wizards' increasingly dangerous classes at the Limòri Academy of Magic. He knows the fragile pact he has forged with his secretive roommate, Gerrard, will not be enough to put an end to the evil. It will take all the students acting together to have any chance of destroying the academy. Building trust, with few chances to speak or plan, will be almost impossible, but there is no choice.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/7/2014

    " It started out a bit slow, but I eventually found myself drawn in by the story. Sadima is a fantastic character, and everything develops beautifully. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cass | 12/22/2013

    " Repetitive in parts. I liked the first book in the series better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex M. | 12/6/2013

    " ...WHAT HAPPENS???? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 11/25/2013

    " Second book in a trilogy that started with Skin Hunger. Like that book, Sacred Scars begins very slowly, yet takes off in unexpected directions about halfway through, setting us up for what could be an amazing finale. I think these two books are quite good, not your typical fantasy novels, but will require very patient YA readers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isabela Oliveira | 11/22/2013

    " I'm usually a fan of the first books in a series and I've read many disappointing sequels, but this didn't fall short of my expectations. I loved it just as much as Skin Hunger. I'm waiting - impatiently! - for the next one in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Breanna Morgan | 11/2/2013

    " SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good, I don't think I could find a better book if I tried. Top 10 for sure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 10/15/2013

    " Slow moving at first and a bit too much swearing - but I liked it. I am dying to know what happens to the characters. Can't wait for book #3. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 wolf j | 10/15/2013

    " I thought that from the middle to the end was really good, but the first half wasn't that great. And it seems like I know less then I did when I started it. I still liked it though! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheralaine Cole-Johnson | 10/5/2013

    " Not nearly as good as the first book. In fact, at times it was very unpleasant, but kept my interest enough for me to finish. I just hope the final book is better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jody | 10/5/2013

    " Can't wait for 3rd and last one of series! All my questions will hopefully be answered! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cankles McNurple | 9/15/2013

    " much better than the first. anticipating the third to be pretty special based on how this book ended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shellz | 8/3/2013

    " A great second book in the trilogy but not as good as the first. This one is a lot darker and the story meanders at times. It is still an intriguing book that makes you wonder what's next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 4/2/2013

    " I liked it but felt it was a bit long... I know she had to cover a long period of time in the book but I lost some of my emotional connection to the female antagonist. I did find the male chapters fascinating. I can't wait to find out about Gerrard, who is by far the most interesting character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 1/24/2013

    " WHAT DO YOU MEAN THE THIRD ONE ISN'T OUT INTEROBANG "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Colleen | 1/6/2013

    " I wanted to like this book but I just couldn't get into it. Perhaps if I'd read the first book in the series that would've helped but alas I did not. Maybe I will return to it again in the future. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 11/3/2012

    " where's the third book?? gotta read it "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kirstyn | 9/10/2012

    " It got better towards the end but it wasn't interesting at all. Part of me wants to find out how the series will end, but the greater part of me knows I could never ever read another book related to this series ever again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 5/24/2011

    " Can't wait for the next one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elbera | 5/3/2011

    " dark and dazzling
    I find Sadima's character intriguing and she is an amazing part of this series. I think i was put off a bit in the beginning due to the nature of some of the content, but it took me by surprise and I am looking forward to the 3rd sequel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Twinkle | 4/30/2011

    " I really really liked this book! I absolutely cannot wait to read the second one. Hurry, hurry hurry! =) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teagan | 2/26/2011

    " I didn`t like this as much as the first one but still a good series. very dark. the second half of the book was very slow and didnt really have a plot... Sadima was just going around, marrying random guys and not knowing her identity. i was so sad when she didn`t know who Micah was. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mac | 2/4/2011

    " The flip flopping between the two stories isn't what's interesting, rather the strength of the characters and the fantastic portrayals of struggle/hardship are what matter. I have to say that I prefer Hahp's story over Sadima's, even though both are well written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 1/10/2011

    " The second book in her trilogy was quite good. Looking forward to the third volume. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rena | 1/7/2011

    " So far its a pretty good book.:) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Colleen | 12/18/2010

    " I wanted to like this book but I just couldn't get into it. Perhaps if I'd read the first book in the series that would've helped but alas I did not. Maybe I will return to it again in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 11/6/2010

    " A little slow and overly detailed at times, but overall a very inventive and creative fantasy. I look forward to the next installment to see what happens to all the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelley | 11/3/2010

    " Now I can't wait for book 3! I liked book 2 much better than book 1. Found myself far more interested in Sadima's story than Hahp's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 10/20/2010

    " Literary high fantasy. Great world building, great characters. Rich language and an insightful plot that takes its time, leaving you yearning to know what happens next. Can't wait for book 3! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathe | 10/15/2010

    " This is the sequel to Skin Hunger which I read a few weeks ago. This was also good -- it dragged just a bit in the middle for me but really picked up at the end and I can't wait to find out what happens in book 3. "
