SHE IS BOLD. SHE IS SASSY. SHE IS ABSOLUTELY A KICKASS WARRIOR. SHE IS MYLA.
With a ghoul handler, she sent souls to Hell by battling and vanquishing them. She was a quasi-demon who fought in the arena. The final frontier before Hell.
HE IS ARROGANT. HE IS RUDE. AND THE ATTRACTION BETWEEN THEM IS OFF THE CHARTS. HE IS LINCOLN.
Loved the banter between them where attraction sizzled in the background. Make no mistake, this ain’t a love story. MYLA was in the quest of finding the truth about her father from the head of Angels. The king of hell too had laid his sight on her.
My second book by author Christina Bauer, I was majorly impressed with the complexities of the realms she had created. MYLA was spot-on with her quips and confidence. Her tail was an extra weapon.
Dipped in the ink of love, the author carefully painted broad strokes of her character while using the fine brush to develop her down the pages. Compassion and maturity were seen in her as the story progressed. Lincoln too warmed the cockles of my heart as their attraction showered sparks on the pages.
I flew through the pages, the illustrations adding an extra layer to my imagination. The words were vividly colorful, I could envision the scenes in my mind. And the fight scenes simply threw my warrior heart into a tailspin, screaming with joy.
A couple of niggles – too long and rambling. Some of the characters could have their chatter edited. Nevertheless the soul of the book captured my attention and let me travel through its realms.
Overall, a fast read with quirky, confident characters set in a layered world and fantastic, heart-pounding action scenes.

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.
