Angelbound by Christina Bauer

Synopsis: Myla Lewis is a quasi-demon girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. When souls want a trial by combat for their right to enter Heaven, they go up against her in Purgatory’s Arena, and she hasn’t lost a battle yet.

But 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.

My Review: In my reviews the first thing I usually do is tell you what the book is generally about but I am going to skip that part today. Hell that’s what the synopsis is for. For this review I would just simply like to tell you about my experience with this book. So here it is.. the truth is when I first started this book I was really excited about it. Then about 25% of the way in I began to think that maybe I wasn’t going to like it as much as I had hoped. At times it just felt looong. DO NOT LET THAT DISCOURAGE YOU! I perservered and I have to say that I am really glad I did. This book is kick ass just like it’s kick ass heroine Myla. She is smart, funny, sarcastic, and just plain bad ass. I loved reading about her and all her antics. For me Myla is what made the book so good. Yes there is a lot of action going on and other characters that are awesome (Walker and prince Lincoln) and are easy to like but Myla’s attitude and all the stunts she pulled had me laughing out loud at times. I, myself, personally believe that if a book can make you have an emotional reaction while reading it rather that be to laugh, cry, or whatever then the author has definitely done something right. I must be honest and say that there are some parts in the beginning I wish had been edited out to make the book get going a bit faster. I recommend that even if you start to feel like you don’t really know where the book is headed and you think you may put it down..DON’T. Once things really get started the time you put into it proves to be worth it. I am really looking forward to getting my hands on the second installment Angelbound Scala.
