Description

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?

L’histoire et la lecture sont top mais c’est très court comparé aux autres tomes disponibles

First book good , second not so much

I found the writers voice irritating when it came to voicing other characters than the main one. Story was more intrigue than action, and annoying intrigue at that. Won’t listen to third book.

Spent a lot of time yelling at stupid heros.

Dialogue is fresh and very youthful. Intelligence level of heroes is well below the line of good taste. I found myself jeering the droolingly dumb heros halfway through the book. I wish the author luck, but characters shouldn't have to be stupid to create the scenes where the author wants to take them.

Loved it

I honestly feel like this series just keeps getting better. There are little quirks in Bauer's writing that some people might not like, but I love the snark, I love the sarcasm, and most of all, I LOVE the world that she's created.

Great Story

Great story. A little slow in the middle at times (felt like they were never going to find that stupid orb!) but overall, a great story. I will definitely keep listening to this series. I also love the idea of the scala/the role of this person. Oh, and Prince Lincoln is just amazing, enough said there. :)

Nobody puts Myla in a corner

Myla is back in book 2, picking up a few months after the end of book one. ​Myla is now the Great Scala and with those powers come some terrible responsibilities. Number one being moving souls to either Heaven or Hell, but with the hidden orb in Purgatory, the only place the souls can go is Hell. So while trying to find the orb, Myla is also trying to keep the overflowing souls contained, steal some alone time with her hunny Lincoln, and dodge Lady Adair, who has made it her goal to be the thorn in Myla's side. Just another day in Purgatory for Myla.

​I literally could not stop listening to this book, ​I was so on the edge of my seat worrying over everything Myla had to deal with. Seriously, this was stressful and real life kept getting in my way, and I loved every minute of the story. I was sucked into the plot and everything Myla went through, I went through right along with her. The book was such a good mix of non-stop action and conflict, with romantic tension and complex, continuing to evolve characters. Also, the few sweet encounters with Myla and Lincoln were heart melting and 100% confirmed that they belong together- the fact he supports her in any capacity is swoon worthy.

The author was back to narrate the second book and I could not have been happier. Keep in mind I own all the books in the series as ebooks, but I will gladly wait until the author has created audio versions for me to listen to because she brings them to life in a way I probably could not have imagined if I read them on my own. Christina gives all the characters personality and voice, creating a full picture for the reader (listener) to get wrapped up in. Myla is hands down my favorite, due in part to her personality, random ramblings and special touches Christina uses to bring her to life. I know that if Myla was a real person and not the Great Scala living in Purgatory, we would be good friends- my snark would recognize her snark.

I can't wait to continue the series, but I will patiently (ok not so patiently, but I have no other option) wait for the rest of the series to become audiobooks. I have forced book 1, Angelbound on so many people (who eventually gave into my demands, mwhahaha) and they loved it as much as I did. This series is so much fun, with great characters and world building unlike I have ever seen before, that I would easily recommend it to anyone looking for a supernatural read with a great female main character. In case from my ramblings it was not apparent, I love this book and can't wait to read (aka listen to Christina read) more.

It is what I expected it to be

It was difficult to take the story to a place that challenged the main character after she became so completely overpowered in the first book.
What needed to happen happened in a very unconvincing way.
The main character is supposed to be a badass fighter, but in this book she seemed to forget about that.

Hard to hate it

I hate that this is a YA series. This story would have made a GREAT Adult Fantasy novel. If written for adults, this series could easily be up there with Faith Hunter, Patricia Briggs, or Darynda Jones. It would definitely click with the Charlie Davidson fans as that series is coming to an end. The story seems a bit too complex to get across to most in the 13 - 18 year old range. Unfortunately, Book 2 of these series goes full out YA. I realized in Book 1 that I had accidentally purchased a YA book but the story was still decent enough to continue. However, Book 2 is written only for middle and high school kids. Adults might not be able to stomach this one. To be fair to the author I will rate this book a 3.5 as a teenager might thoroughly enjoy this book. But my review is all grown up me :-)

The kiddy language is hard to bare. I heard the word "Totally! " about 20 times. If I had any wine, I'd have taken a drink everytime I heard it. The maturity level of the characters actually drop.

Then we have the actual story. These kids who haven't even graduated from High School are now Senators. Really? Were there no adults in the entire world who were better suited?

Then Cissy (whom I hate) couldn't function in Book 1 without Zeke, now in Book 2 is able to manage breathing and eating without him. Amazing turn around.

Adair, who is a dimwit in Book 1, becomes an evil mastermind in this book. Her obession with Lincoln is way overdone. I would have preferred her just hating Myla and wanting revenge. Lincoln just doesn't give me that WOW factor to warrant such attention.

It's not that I completely hate this book, I just see a great story wasted in the YA Genre. As I am one to finish a series once I start, I will continue on to Book 3. I'll have my glass of wine ready for this one. Anytime I hear SWEET! or TOTALLY! I'm going to take a sip. I'll let you know how tipsy I end up.
