Eighteen year old Myla Lewis is a girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. She’s not your every day quasi-demon, half-demon and half-human, girl. For the past five years, Myla has lived for the days she gets to fight in Purgatory’s arena. When souls want a trial by combat for their right to enter heaven or hell, they go up against her, and she hasn’t lost a battle yet.

But as she starts her senior year at Purgatory High, the arena fights aren’t enough to keep her spirits up anymore. When the demons start to act weird, even for demons, and the King of the Demons, Armageddon, shows up at Myla’s school, she knows that things are changing and it’s not looking good for the quasi-demons. Myla starts to question everything, and doesn’t like the answers she finds. What happened seventeen years ago that turned the quasi-demons into slave labor? Why was her mom always so sad? And why won’t anyone tell her who her father is?

Things heat up when Myla meets Lincoln, the High Prince of the Thrax, a super sexy half-human and half-angel demon hunter. But what’s a quasi-demon girl to do when she falls for a demon hunter? It’s a good thing that Myla’s not afraid of breaking a few rules. With a love worth fighting for, Myla’s going to shake up Purgatory.

Angelbound by Christina Bauer (Angelbound Origins, #1)

Angelbound (Angelbound Origins #1)In the spirit of ancient gladiators fighting to the death, one fighter stands out as Pugatory’s best. Meet Myla, quasi-demon, Purgatory high school student and all around lethal fighting machine, sending souls packing on a one way trip to Hell. Myla was born to fight a quasi-demon, half human, half demon, rage fuels her wicked skills in the arena, just like frustration fuels her life at home with her mom. The woman who, no matter what, will tell Myla her father’s identity.

In a society where ghouls have enslaved quasi –demons, Myla questions far more than she should and her irreverent behavior makes her a thorn in everyone’s side. But nothing can prepare her world for what happens when the king of demons arrives and Armageddon isn’t looking to make life better for his subjects. To really stir the pot, Myla finds she cannot help but be attracted to Lincoln, high prince of the Thrax, a half human, half angel demon hunter. Probably not her best move, but in true Myla fashion, she is going to rock the demon world and have fun doing it!

ANGELBOUND by Christina Bauer puts the attitude in young heroines and names it Myla! Sassy, mouthy, and able to back her mouth with her mad fighting skills, she is like a fish out of water when it comes to courtly manners and young love. I absolutely loved Christina Bauer’s style, full of action, intense scenes, and characters that will test one’s imaginations to the max! A fun read filled with moments of pure teen attitude, without relying on pages of gore in the arena, Myla is a character to remember! And, Lincoln, yep, he certainly proves that opposites do attract! I have the feeling this series is just going to get better!
