Product Description

“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. It was so in depth with back stories and history. I loved it.” - 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, 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.

About the Author

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too. Christina lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.

Eighteen-year-old quasi demon Myla Lewis loves to fight in the arena of Purgatory. She was born to serve this way, but Myla’s also on a quest to learn the truth about her father’s identity. And she wants to know why her overprotective mother refuses to discuss the past. In a world inundated with ghouls, demons, thrax, and where quasi-demons are slaves, it’s best not to rock the boat. This is exactly what Myla does, especially after she meets the irresistible thrax, Prince Lincoln.

Angelbound is a terrific story that will appeal to teen, young adult, and adult readers. Author Christina Bauer kept me turning the pages (500 on my ipad) and ramped up the tension and the stakes beautifully. The characters are especially likeable and well developed. Myla is a feisty young heroine who discovers that she’s not who she thought she was. The ups and downs of high school relationships, first love, and betrayal certainly are key to the story, but this book is far more complex than that.

As with most fantasies, the battle between good and evil is the ubiquitous driving force, but there are also a lot of politics, social hierarchy, and behind-the-scenes manipulation at play. Establishing the good guys from the bad is murky at times, as secrets and alliances unfold, which is exactly how it should be.

As the stakes mount and tension builds, the ending is so suspenseful that I literally couldn’t put the book down. I’ve read a fair bit of fantasy fiction over the last two years, and this is one of the most intriguing yet.

Yup, I love this book. Angelbound is about purgatory, heaven, hell, ghouls, cool tails, gladiator battles, a kick butt heroine, and destiny. Which in case you don’t know, makes up for a heck of a good read. Christina’s voice is very much defined in this book, and makes for a smooth read. It does not have a boring moment, and the villains are truly despicable, which gets the rise out of every reader. Like I mentioned before, this book has an incredible kick butt heroine. She is an inhabitant of purgatory, and equipped with her awesome demon tail, she fights the truly bad guys in the arena, to make sure they go to hell like they are supposed to. Her name is Myla. Myla is a half demon… need I say more about how epic this is? This book and all its characters deserve the rating I am giving it. Five stars for Angelbound!

The first half of this book was absolutely superb. The second half was 'ok'. Be better without the oooooh, aaaaah predictable cliche romance.

"His eyes almost glow with intensity. "I like this. Feeling like I have a peer, a partner." He cups my face in his hands. "I like you, Myla."

Christian Bauer created a fantastic new world, filled with beautiful and dark creatures. With amazing kick-ass characters, Angelbound is a perfect Ya novel.

Myla Lewis is a kick-ass / doesn't take shit from anyone type of girl. But who would dare fight her anyways? Myla is a quasi-demon, half demon, half human. She looks just like you and me, with an addition to an awesome tail that's meant for killing. Myla spends her time ditching school and fighting souls in the Purgatory arena.
But then things start to get crazy! The demons and angels are acting weird, and her land is filled with incoming Thrax, half angel, half human demon hunters. It looks like everyone is preparing for battle, but who's side will Myla chose? Either way, Purgatory will never be the same.

This book is so wonderful. It's filled with action, mystery, and a forbidden romance. Who doesn't love that?
I absolutely loved Myla as a character, shes beautiful, witty, smart, and she has a license to kill. I absolutely loved reading about her fighting, the author definitely did a good job with making me feel like I was in the book.

The world that she created is also pretty amazing. Angels and Demons are pretty common in books nowadays, same with the half angel half human species. But I've never read a book where the half demon half human species were actually considered good, it was so awesome seeing their demon emotions come out during specific parts of the book. And the whole idea of Ghouls was pretty brilliant as well. I'm impressed.
