   second half of the epic Sanctuary story line, which spanned
   over two years of Drew Hayes' Poison Elves series. In Guild
   War, the elvin assassin Lusiphur has been captured by the
   Eye of the Lins (a rival guild run by police lieutenant
   Vido), whose sole purpose is to exterminate every last
   Sanctuary member. Struggling to stay alive, Lusiphur
   manages to escape and return to Sanctuary in time to help
   stage a preemptive strike on the vigilante organization.
   The climactic result is a definitively chaotic, bloody
   battle on the streets of Mandratha. In Strange Days,
   Lusiphur's ex-wife Hyena returns to wreak havoc on the
   rogue elf's already-inextricable life. Plus, the
   indestructible E'jja finally tracks down Lusiphur, whom the
   E'jja has sworn to kill, causing Sanctuary leaders Morachi
   and Talon to rethink Lusiphur's membership. Unfortunately,
   the only way to retire from Sanctuary is to die or be
   killed. All this, as well as the single most shocking event
   in Poison Elves history, makes volume 6 an essential tome."
