Sanctuary is a novel by Jeff Mariotte centered around Angel and his team.


Angel and Co. are enjoying some downtime at the karaoke bar Caritas when a loud explosion occurs. The gang and the rest of the bar are attracted outside. A building nearby is on fire. It seems that it may have been a diversionary tactic to distract from a drive-by shooting. When the smoke clears, Fred has gone missing. It seems Fred has been kidnapped, so Team Angel questions everyone nearby. Around a dozen demons were direct eyewitnesses, but each one has a different story. Whether it was gangs, monsters, or a runaway Fred, the team soon realize demons do not make the most reliable eyewitnesses.


The events took place after "That Vision Thing" but before "That Old Gang of Mine".

Cordelia Chase: "After we find Fred, I think we should schedule an ergonomics seminar. You know, getting kicked around by demons and stuff is bad, but who knows what kind of repetitive motion disorders we're risking without even knowing?"
