"I'm virtually speechless when it comes to this novel. I have not found an author that I adore the writing style of this much since Jennifer L. Armentrout. The world that this author created was amazing." - Brittany's Book Reviews 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, part-demon and part-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 part-human and part-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. " Loved it! A confident, independent, kick-ass heroine who doesn't suffer fools gladly⦠Absolutely fantastic read!

I really enjoyed it! Bauer does a great job of getting immersing readers in the world without bogging the story down. We learn as we read, which is fantastic. The pacing is steady and the characters fun.

Myla is a great protagonist, full of spark, energy, and of course, wrath. Being a quasi demon whose sin is wrath (and lust), she drives the story forward with relentless passion. What truly sets Myla apart from the stereotypical, and often one-dimensional, kick butt warrior, is that she isn’t just that. She is sensitive and introspective, especially when it comes to her background, her family, and the injustices she observes. Yes, she enjoys the fight, and though it seems like her life is about the fight, it isn’t. That’s what it has been because that’s all she has had to escape from the realities of the current construct of Purgatory. It’s her only escape, and that she’s good at it – only make it better.

To say everything changes when she meets a boy would be cliche, but also a partial lie. Everything changes for Myla when Purgatory itself shifts away from the current norm. That Bauer manages to conflate the workings of the world with the meeting of a boy is fantastic, keeping Myla true to herself and strong, while still letting her be young and “in love.” Also, Lincoln is amazing and a breath of fresh air compared to all of these other YA love interests. He backs Myla up instead of overshadowing her or going above her. He cares for her and does what she needs instead of what he thinks she needs or is best.

Angelbound by Christina Bauer is a great YA fantasy novel that has some of the healthiest depictions of young romance I’ve seen in a while. The pacing is spot on, characters are refreshing, and there are seedlings of a vast and solid world beyond what we see.

Angelbound is a wonderfully engaging story with a kick ass female as the amazing main character. I bought this book back in January 2014, about 1-2 months after it was released and read it as quickly as I did this second time. This story is around 500 pages. I started it yesterday at 9PM and now have a book hangover since I didn't sleep until 2AM.

ANYWAY, this story was definitely something else with the memorable characters, the perfectly executed humor, the action-packed scenes, and their strong independent, fierce lady character, Myla, all flawlessly balanced into an awesome story that has yet to leave the back of my conscious...

Goodreads Synopsis:
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.

My Review:
I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Long time arena fighter, Myla Lewis is a quasi-demon living in purgatory. Her world is run by ghoulish overlords, and not everyone is happy about that. Juggling school drama, fighting job and her moms latest outbursts, she has a lot going on. Things are changing, and their world is on the brink of a war.

Honestly at first I thought I wasn't going to like this book. It kind of jumped and there was a lot going on. It was a little hard to get into, but after the first quarter of the book I got used to it and actually started wondering what was going to happen next. The characters were kind of confusing at first but once everything was explained I liked them. I'm hoping for more exciting things to happen in the second book, I feel like a lot of this was just the characters sitting around talking. The almost sex scene was super awkward, and kind of out of place in my opinion.

Overall I enjoyed reading this unique book and I like the cover. I wasn't sure about it at first but I liked it in the end. I will be reading the next book in the series. Check it out and see what you think.

What I loved about it:

Characters you make friends with: Myla kicks ass and takes no prisoners, she’s a genuine strong female character and I love her for it. There aren’t any cardboard cut-outs in this story, all the characters who take feature roles are complex individuals (except for those highborn Thrax bitches). Although not a character per se, I adore the fact that Myla’s tail has a will of its own.

High thread count plots: linen is made by weaving many strands together to create sheets of fabric, the more tightly woven the strands are, the smoother the end product is. Rough sheets aren’t nice to sleep on, nor are loose plots fun to read. While I found some elements a tad predictable, the means the author uses to work them out certainly isn’t.

Well handled tropes: The ‘girl and boy dislike each other then fall in love’ story line tends to be clichéd and unrealistic, but not in this case. For a start, Myla doesn’t simper over Lincoln. She’s attracted to him, but he acts like a jerk so she locks her feelings down. No ‘he’s a stupid bigot but I so, so, wish he liked me *sob*’ moments here, and even though he saves her life, its not because there was a fight and she was sniveling in a corner.

Myla coming into her full power walked a thin tightrope for a while, mainly because I didn’t quite buy Armageddon’s analysis of her, but it still works.

A new world mixed with old ideas: Angels and Demons coming together to watch gladiator style battles could’ve been a huge fail, but the central premise glues it together nicely. It makes sense that both sides take interest in which souls pass into their realms, and I like the concept that each soul can choose between trial by jury, or trial by combat. I also liked the political structure of these realms, and the manner in which this information is passed to the reader.

What I didn’t like:

Repetitive descriptions: Armageddon is the main transgressor here. At least half of his appearances include a description, these are so alike that one wonders if they were copy and pasted throughout.

Typos: There were very few of these, but those that did creep in were quite confusing, such as using Walker’s name when the author clearly meant Tim.

Confusing fight scenes: At times, it was hard to tell exactly what was happening. Myla appears to defy Physics in the first battle, propelling herself away from her opponent yet somehow using her momentum to land by his head. A body in motion cannot change direction unless force is applied to effect this change.

Overall, this isn’t a book that startles you with its originality, but rather a story that navigates classic plot ideas in a unique manner. It didn’t make my heart race, or blow my mind, but I was reluctant to put it down and finished it in two days. This book is written with sass and awesomeness, and although it needs a bit of polish, it still rocks. I’m keen to see what happens in the other books and will definitely return to this series once I’ve caught up on my reading

*I like romances which are from hate to love, pigtail theory type (not the bullying kind). Make sure you two really stick to TOGETHER.

*Myla, Cissy, while an envy demon (that excuse will only go so far), is a selfish person. Good on you to tell her off.

*Just tell the Earl of Acca that you can transport them all to hell. Easy peasy. ( )
