The Book Junkie Reads . . .Review of: Angelbound (Angelbound Origins, #1) . . . The truth of things has a price so different from love. The reality of things has a different price also. What is truth and what is reality? Myla Lewis finds the difference can be life changing. The reality of things may change this quasi-demon’s view on her world and her place within it.
Myla was a kick-ass kinda girl that did it all in a mature way. I fell in love with her and her independence. Her spirit. Her fight. Just her period. She knew herself even if she did not know exactly where she came from. She had her mom but what about dad.
This was a YA read that transported you. Tempted you to think beyond the borders of your imagination and cross lines of reality. This was a woman on the edge of adulthood but this was most certainly a ya read. The violence was violent but not explicit or over the top. The lustful thoughts of a teen were just that. Everything was well rated and contained to suit the audience it was intended for. I loved the read. I was excited to be able to pick up the next book in the series. The flow was great. The characters varied and complex.
The details of the world were vivid and rich. There were some over explanation in areas but I could appreciate what was being presented. A full picture of the world was give and it was well received on my end. It allowed for my imagination to take full hold of what was being described.
I got lost in this world created by Christina Bauer with demons, quasi demons, angels, purgatory, hell on earth and so much more. I was transported to a world that was so unreal that it felt so real. I look forward to taking the time to listen to the audio. Especially since it was done by Christina herself. I believe she will be able to add that just right touch to make it come to life.

Eighteen-year-old Myla Lewis is a girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. She’s not your everyday 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 has not lost a battle yet.
But as she starts her senior year at Purgatory High, the arena fights are not 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 is not looking good for the quasi-demons. Myla starts to question everything, and does not like the answers she finds. What happened 17 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 does a quasi-demon girl to do when she falls for a demon hunter? It’s a good thing that Myla is not afraid of breaking a few rules. With a love worth fighting for, Myla is going to shake up Purgatory.
