*Now an audio book!*
Eighteen-year-old Myla Lewis is a girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. She’s not your everyday 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 has not lost a battle yet.
But as she starts her senior year at Purgatory High, the arena fights are not 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 is not looking good for the quasi-demons. Myla starts to question everything, and does not like the answers she finds. What happened 17 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 does a quasi-demon girl to do when she falls for a demon hunter? It’s a good thing that Myla is not afraid of breaking a few rules. With a love worth fighting for, Myla is going to shake up Purgatory.


My first audio book review ever, and I couldn't be more thrilled than to review Angelbound!!

When I first knew that the entire book was being narrated by the author, I was a little skeptical, but she truly brought every character to life.

Myle is a badass, there's no doubt about it, she kick-ass and takes names. Making sure there is  balance in her twisted world is what she's aiming for, yet there is something lurking in the shadows waiting to take her down.....

One of my favorite things about this entire story line was how everything ended up intertwining together. All the plots, side-plots and details landed together at the end. The demons, Angels and everything in-between had a very organic combination. I commend the author on her fantastic plot development during Myla's entire journey through this novel. She was able to keep her sassy, smarta$$ quality, all while vanquishing those who do not belong.

I will say that I fell in love with the inner love story. It reminded me of something that J.R. Ward would write, but there was no denying it was 100% original. It warmed my heart and made me slightly jealous.

Now I cannot wait to see where Myla's badass-ness takes her in the next installment in this series! Because it's going to be a wild ride for sure!!
