Scala by Christina Bauer--Audiobook Review

Scala (Angelbound Origins #2)by Christina Bauer
Genre: YA SupernaturalAudiobook
Release Date: June 26th 2017Monster House
Nineteen-year-old Myla Lewis has transformed into Great Scala, the only being with the power to move souls out of Purgatory and into Heaven or Hell. Trouble is, a magical object called Lucifer’s Orb is limiting Myla’s abilities. If she tries to move a soul, the Orb’s forcing her to send that spirit straight to Hell.
So, what’s a girl to do? Send innocents to the fiery down-under?
No way. Myla’s gone on a supernatural strike. No souls go anywhere until the Orb’s history. It’s the right thing to do, but Purgatory’s Soul Storage buildings are turning into time bombs. No spirits are moving out, while millions keep coming in. Myla’s determined to find the Orb and send the innocent to Heaven, but she’s running out of time. Soon, the containment fields will burst, releasing a mob of homicidal ghosts.
With Soul Storage ready to explode, Myla’s got enough on her plate without her old enemy, Lady Adair, causing problems. Adair is launching an ingenious campaign to take away everything that Myla holds dear, including Myla’s Angelbound love, Prince Lincoln.
Between their clever ideas and toe-curling kisses, Myla and Lincoln are fighting back. But will they beat the clock or lose everything to Adair’s devious schemes?

My Thoughts:
Absolutely loved this one too.  Myla is the scala now and the problem she is facing is she cannot process the souls.  Lucifer's Orb makes it impossible to send the good souls to heaven.  She and Lincoln are in love but his ex is determined to get him back.  So she is making Myla's life miserable.  Myla is having issues with ghost containment, a meddlesome ex, and it looks like problems are coming in on all fronts.
I love getting to come back and visit clients that I've grown to adore.  The author's voice to these characters just takes it to a new level for me.  Myla and Lincoln are just completely perfect together.  Adair was obnoxious.  Loved my favorites being back.  Walker may be my absolute favorite.  Getting to really see more of Myla's dad intrigued me as well as all the positions her family and friends hold.  The end was gratifying and sad at the same time.  Good mix throughout the story and didn't want it to end!
Absolutely 5/5.  I can't wait for more.

Thank you to the publisher/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.
