Angelbound by Christina Bauer--Audiobook Review

Angelbound (Angelbound Origins #1)Book Description:
***Angelbound is now an audio book read by the author, Christina Bauer***

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.

My Thoughts:
I absolutely LOVE that the author did this herself!  Hearing it how it sounds in the author's head gives it a whole new feel.  Myla is an arena fighter whose mom won't tell her anything about her father.  She lives to fight in the arena and hasn't lost a fight yet.  Her life changes when she meets Lincoln and all the demons start acting weird.
I love Myla and the voice Christina gives her in this audiobook makes her even sassier and better.  She is such a tough girl, but the soft spot for her mom and best friend is perfect.  I adore both her mom and her best friend, they are the perfect buffer for Myla.  The imagery was great, I would so love to go watch a fight!  Lincoln was actually a good guy.  He could be a twirp but I really loved this character too.  
Absolutely a 5/5!  Cannot wait to hear the next one!
Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
