Angelbound by Christina Bauer

Book Description:
Angelbound (Angelbound, #1)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:
Loved this book.  Myla is an arena fighter.  Her mother will tell her nothing about what happened in the past or who her father is. Living in Purgatory isn't a happy place but her demon half does love the fights to the death in the arena. When the Thrax show up and she meets the High Prince, Lincoln, things start getting interesting.  The demons start acting up and life as Myla knows it will never be the same again!
I loved Myla from the start.  She is just a sassy, self-assured, kick butt chick who knows what she wants.  I wasn't sure I would ever like her mom because of how clingy she was, but I did like understanding the story behind it all.  Lincoln was hot, even when he was being a jerk.  Her best friend could go from sweetheart to scary in 0 seconds flat!  The peril of her world was terrifying to Myla and yet she loved to cause 'trouble'. The author wove wonderful characters through a story that will just suck you in and not let you go!
5/5 for me.  I completely enjoyed this story!
