***Experience the events of Angelbound from Prince Lincoln’s point of view…And then enjoy an all-new part of his story!***

When it comes to fighting demons, Prince Lincoln is the greatest warrior in the history of his people, the thrax. Now Lincoln faces his hardest fight yet…and it’s not on a traditional battlefield.

Lincoln is falling in love. And the girl is part demon.

Between a fated dance at the Ryder mansion…a life-changing walk through a hedgerow maze…and a massive battle with none other than the King of Hell…Lincoln realizes that he wants to share his life with Myla Lewis, the part-demon girl who has captured his heart. However, an evil thrax noble—the powerful Earl of Acca—is prepared to do anything to stop Lincoln and Myla from having a future.

But Lincoln won’t give up on his Myla. Ever.

To fight Aldred, Lincoln works to create a different kind of marriage—an Alliance of the lesser thrax houses against Acca. Sadly, just as Lincoln starts to makes some progress, the nobles who’ve joined his Alliance begin to vanish. Is Aldred behind the disappearances, or is someone else vying for power? When Lincoln discovers the truth, it upends his entire world, threatening his future with Myla in ways no one could ever have imagined.

“I absolutely love Christina Bauer’s style, full of action, intense scenes, and characters that will test one’s imaginations to the max!”Tome Tender Book Blog

My Review:

Prince Lincoln has been trained all his life nearly to fight and hunt demons until the day he lays eyes on a certain quasi-demon, part-human, part-demon who lives in Purgatory with her mother, Camilla. When Lincoln first lays eyes on Myla it is insta-love. Lincoln wants to be with Myla forever and will not let anything or anyone get his way.

The Earl of Acca has different plans for Lincoln and sets out to stop Lincoln from ever being with Myla. Aldred wants Lincoln to marry his daughter, Lady of Adair and tries to use Myla as way of blackmailing Lincoln to sign the contract to marry Lady Adair. But what the Earl doesn’t realize is that Lincoln is no DA and has plans of his own. Lincoln is not only a hottie the kind that will make your tongue reach out slap you on the forehead but he is an intelligent dude as well.

Lincoln makes alliances with the other houses to help him in his fight against the Earl of Acca but when they start to disappear he wonders if the Earl is not to blame in some way or another. Lincoln must find out what is happening to his men and who is responsible.

Lincoln has a lot on his plate with having to fight the Earl, demons and keeping his beloved Myla safe not to mention the fact that he is following her around so that he can ogle her without anyone noticing. Lincoln needs to stay far away from Myla if he is to keep her safe but how can he protect her if he can’t keep an eye on her at all times? Yeah but our Lincoln is not doing all the ogling himself no Myla is doing some ogling of her own (don’t blame you one little bit Myla).

I just love the Angelbound world with all the demons, angels, part-demons, part-humans. The characters are so bad themselves with all the fighting and trying to save others. I love getting the story from Lincoln side and knowing how it all went down for him. With Lincoln and Myla we have a couple that are really made for each other and are equals in all ways.

Both are strong and great warriors who know how to fight and are a great match for each other. I loved the scene where Lincoln and Myla were sparring/training, she tells him not to go easy on her but when things get a little tight she assumes she can use her tail against Lincoln like she does in the arena to umm…poke her opponents with but her tail has its own ideas as her tail and Lincoln have a special relationship just musses up his hair instead. Yes loved it! I love that her tail has a mind of its own.

Angelbound is filled with intense demon fighting amongst other fighting from beginning to end. It will keep you on the edge of your seat watching and waiting to see what demon or who Lincoln was going to come up against next and where he was going to lead us. I loved traveling with Lincoln from the House of Thrax to the House of Acca to Earth to Purgatory or to the arena to watch the fights or to a ball to dance or sparring with Myla and fighting some demons somewhere in between. I just love this world and can’t wait for more of it. I can’t wait for more of Lincoln, Walker, Myla and her tail oh and Lincoln’s too oh my now that is one hot dude right Myla, you go girl, Lady Adair keep on trucking you don’t want a piece of Myla Lewis.

Angelbound is an amazing series that I highly recommend to one and all weather you like demons, ghouls or the Great Scala. If you like adventure, fighting, action, romance and hot dudes then you are going to love Lincoln, Angelbound Origins book two.
