The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . THE DARK LANDS (Anglebound Origins, #5) . . . What have Myla and Lincoln gotten in to this time around? They are up to getting dirty with some inhabitants of the dark lands, for the sake of a good friends, someone dear to them. The book you can follow pretty well without having read the previous installments, but for the best entertainment you should read the previous books and enjoy them for the thrill of this world it gives. Myla is and was a handful. She has not slowed down much. Wife, mother, soul mover. She has much on her young plate.
Monster House Books and Christina Bauer brings on the action, adventure, romance and a bit of a mystery in the Dark Lands. Myself and the children (teenagers) have loved this series from the beginning. This latest installment has provided us with a deeper respect for Myla and her role as Queen of the Thrax and her love for Lincoln.
“This YA paranormal fantasy series is cute, compulsively readable and above all fun.” – The Nocturnal Library Blog
Nineteen-year-old Myla Lewis is loving life–she’s now a wife, mother, and Queen of the Thrax. Oh yeah, and being a super-powerful demigoddess who moves souls into Heaven or Hell doesn’t suck, either. In fact, everything is pretty much awesome. Until something craptastic happens.
Her honorary older brother Walker enters the Dark Lands, home to the rule-loving ghouls, and vanishes without a trace.
Now it’s up to Myla to solve the mystery of Walker’s disappearance. Of course, Myla likes interacting with ghouls about as much as elective dental surgery. To make matters harder, everyone thinks that Walker is simply taking a well-deserved vacation. But Myla and her Angelbound love, Lincoln, both suspect that the ghoul Oligarchy took Walker in order to somehow release Lucifer, the ex-King of the Angels and an all around nut job who really needs to stay locked up.
Long story short, Myla and Lincoln have just two days to rescue their good friend and stop Lucifer from taking over the after-realms. Even for them, this may be a too-tall order, especially when Myla’s own father allows his past friendship with Lucifer to threaten Walker’s future.
“I loved jumping back into the world of Angelbound.” – Mean Who You Are Blog
Perfect for readers who love angels, devils, and demons but want a fresh take on their related fairy tales, myths, and legends. This series combines fierce females, paranormal romance and urban/contemporary fantasy. Enjoy!!
