I bought this a few years ago and then it got stuck in that huge TBR pile on my kindle. Last month Christina very kindly sent me another copy to review which gave me the boot up the backside I needed to actually sit down and read it, so thank you Christina!

Overall, I loved this story, Myla is a quasi-demon, half-human half-demon, living in purgatory and slave to every other being in the underworld. But it hasn’t always been that way and Myla really wants to get to the bottom of things. As she digs closer to the truth she meets Lincoln a Thrax, half-human half-angel, supposedly sworn-enemies these two just can’t keep away from each other and it becomes apparent that Lincoln may hold some answers to Myla’s questions.

Now, I struggled with Myla’s relationship with her best friend, they spoke to each other as if they were twelve and it really grated on me when I was reading the dialogue between them. I didn’t feel that Myla’s dialogue was as young or irritating with other people just her best friend and it became a sore spot for me throughout the book that I would have to deal with it.

I loved that Myla was an arena fighter in this world, a quasi-demon who fights evil souls to keep them out of heaven. I loved the dynamic here, her eagerness to fight, her toughness. This was enjoyable to read and I would have loved to see more of these fights and scenes included.

I thoroughly enjoyed the early scenes with Lincoln while they were mistaking attraction for irritation. There was so much scope here and some of these situations are hilarious. Myla is such a strong character and even in this world where she is part of a people who are treated as slaves she still stands tall and fights for herself.

This starts of quite promising, but doesn't manage to maintain all the way through.

Mostly, I think this is because the story is just too long. It seems to take a while to get anywhere, and gets repetitious after a while. By 2/3 of the way though, I was starting to get bored. This could really have benefited from a good edit to tighten it up and lose about a quarter of the length.

The other thing I found frustrating was the heroine has a tendency to act like a total idiot, especially towards the end. The author spends a lot of time describing her emotions in an attempt to justify her silliness, but it never quite rings true for me (for a satisfying story, you want your heroes to be heroic, not lucky).

Finally, the climax is rather unsatisfying - as a reader I've waded through a large number of pages to get to the climax, getting annoyed as the heroine acts like a numpty and (no real spoilers here) nearly gets herself and her loved ones killed in the process, and then suddenly it's all over and I'm left thinking: "Was that it?"

So overall, has some good points and shows potential, but really could do with a skilled editor to sort out the issues.

Angelbound is the first in the series which included a lot of world building. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading the books so this is my first encounter with the world of Purgatory and the Quasi Demon. This was absolutely absorbing, one minute I was laughing, and other parts crying.
Myla was a normal 18yr old, but is basically living under the rule of the Ghouls on behalf of Armageddon The King of Hell, who invaded 20 years ago.
This has fighting in the Arena and elsewhere, teenage angst, boy meets girl. I loved it, I am hooked when is more coming out on Audio. I got to say I loved Lincoln, he was perfect for Myla. The story is narrated by Myla the main character who goes through an amazing transformation. I absolutely love this Audio book and when is Acca coming out?
