Summary from Goodreads:
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.
Full disclosure, I read the ebook version but wanted to celebrate the audio release with y’all so you get all the audiobook details with an opinion on the story. Spoiler alert: I liked it.
You might be thinking, do I really need to read another not-quite-human girl fighting for survival and glory in a hellish world or something close to it?Answer- yeah. This one is fast paced, full of furious action, and a lot of sarcastic humor. Or as I like to call it, a pnr lover’s jackpot. The romance isn’t even nearly as forced as it could have been.
I’ve only read book 1 but with these being on sale, it only makes sense for me to keep reading. Who’s going to binge with me? Let me know in the comments!
Monster House Books is celebrating the launch of the audiobook version of the best seller Angelbound, both on iTunes & Audible! As a result, every launched book in the series is only $1.99, aka more than 50% off…And that includes Angelbound ACCA, which was only released a few months ago!
For those of you who are new to the series, here’s a quick overview of the books that are now on sale from their author, Christina Bauer:
Book 1 – Angelbound
“This is the original story of Myla, a part demon girl who loves to kick ass in Purgatory’s Arena. She falls in love with a part-angel Prince (who’s also a demon hunter.) Mayhem ensues. You can check out the book trailer here.”
BONUS: If you buy the audiobook version of Angelbound, then the ebook is free in March! How cool is that?
Book 2 – Scala
“Myla and Lincoln team up to save Purgatory. They also smooch a lot. Did I mention this was my un-official summary of each book based on what I like most about them? Well, it is. I like the smooching in this one.”
“In this NEW installment, Myla and Lincoln take down the evil house of Acca while trying to get hitched. I love the final scene in this book which features an awesome tune by the Rolling Stones. Nuff said.”
“This is the story of how Myla’s first kid is born while she runs off to the Earth’s surface with Cissy to save Lincoln. Okay, full disclosure: I didn’t put Thrax into the discount structure because it’s not due to launch until September 26th of this year, and launches are how I pay my bills. At least I don’t lie to you :-)”
Book 5 – Armageddon
“This installment is all about the demon we love to hate, Armageddon (I call him Armie.) Myla goes to Hell to save her son and kick that f*’s ass. Good times.”
Book 1 – Angelbound Offspring – Maxon
“This is the story of Myla’s son all growed up. No, I didn’t have to put him at $1.99 since this is technically a separate series, but MHB is kind of awesome like that.”
“My favorite cover of all time! This is the story of Myla’s daughter and how she maybe gets involved with a hottie dragon king.”
So there you have it: six books discounted to celebrate the launch of Angelbound on audiobook! Be sure to order ASAP—these are limited-time discounts and will end soon!
