Review: Duty Bound (Angelbound Origins 0.5) by Christina Bauer @CB_Bauer

Duty Bound
Angelbound Origins 0.5
by Christina Bauer

Expected Publication: February 27, 2018
Publisher: Monster House Books, LLC
Genre: Angels, Demons, Paranormal, YA Dark Fantasy


As the High Prince of the demon-fighting thrax, Lincoln knows he must marry for political gain. Not that he minds. For all of his eighteen years, Lincoln’s been bound to his duty. Fighting demons is his life, and he’s never given romance a second thought. Instead, the High Prince lives for the days when he leaves his hidden realm to fight demons on Earth.

Then, everything changes.

Lincoln and his nobles become forced to visit Purgatory, the home of quasi-demons (who are mostly human with a bit of demonic DNA). Here Lincoln spies Myla Lewis, a lady warrior who enflames his heart, ignites his interest, and inspires his respect. Trouble is, Myla’s also a quasi. By thrax law, Lincoln must kill anything demonic—not date them.

For the first time in his life, Lincoln wonders if he’ll follow his duty…or heed the demands of his heart.

Don't miss this prequel to the best-selling Angelbound, told from Prince Lincoln's point of view!

My Review:

All his life Lincoln knows it has been his duty to fight demons and he lives for the times he gets to go to Earth to fight demons. Lincoln and his family have been spending time in Purgatory. Where he has a few disputes with his future father-in-law the Earl of Acca. The Earl of Acca is a very conniving and sneaky man.

It is also Lincoln’s duty to marry the Earl of Acca’s daughter something which Lincoln has never concerned himself with before until he sees a mysterious girl, a lady Thrax warrior or so he thinks. When Lincoln lays eyes on this mystery lady he is determined to find out who she is once she enters his dreams and he can’t get her off his mind.

Lincoln is a very strong man who stands up for what he thinks is right and will do whatever he deems necessary to see that other people do the right thing even if that means putting his own life in danger. Lincoln is what every woman wants in a man. He is what I would call a Harlequin kind of man. I have really enjoyed reading and seeing things through Lincoln’s eyes and hope to see more of this world and more through his eyes hopefully in the near future.

It would be so neat to see Lincoln and all the other characters in the Angelbound series on the big screen. I would love to see Lincoln in all his hotness and the dark, greyness of Purgatory. It would be so awesome to see all the characters come to life in 3D.

If you love reading about demons and angels and a strong warrior with hotness oozing off him in waves then Duty Bound is the book for you. Check out the rest of the Angelbound series as well.
