Rory Miller thought her life was over when a notorious serial killer set his sights on her, forcing her family into witness protection. But her new home, a remote island with azure blue skies and white-sand beaches, seems like heaven on earth . . . at least at first.
Juniper Landing isn't like other islands. And the truth about the swirling fog that rolls in each morning is even more terrifying than being hunted by Steven Nell. Now that Rory knows about the real Juniper Landing, she must face the most painful truth of all: she can never go home again.
From the best-selling author of the Private and Privilege series comes the second novel in a gripping trilogy about a girl who must leave behind the only life she's known without ever looking back.

Gr 8 Up-In Shadowlands (Hyperion, 2012), Rory Miller, her father, and her sister are put in witness protection after she survives an attack by a serial killer. Here, she finds out that she's a Lifer, someone assigned to usher people to the afterlife-to the Light or the Shadowlands-and Juniper Landing is actually a "way station" for people before they move on. Lifers are made by performing selfless acts. In Rory's case, it was killing the serial killer after he caught up with the family before they reached witness protection. Now her relationship with her sister is strained because she cannot tell her or their father about their fate because it would automatically sentence them to the Shadowlands. If that weren't enough of a challenge, bad things start happening after Rory's arrival-plants are dying, hornets show up, and people get sick-signs that a Lifer is "going bad." Then all the people who are ushered, even the completely good ones, are sent to the Shadowlands. Something is definitely going wrong and Rory and her friends are determined to track down the culprits and recover the people who were incorrectly ushered. Although the book can stand alone, most readers will find the beginning confusing unless they have read the first one, but expect them to clamor for the next in the series. Give it to patrons who like their mysteries and suspense with a paranormal twist.-Suanne B. Roush, Osceola High School, Seminole, FLα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal.
