In the wake of Maxon’s abduction, all the after-realms calling for war, and no one shouts louder than Lincoln.

My Review:


I loved jumping back into the world of Angelbound. I marked it on my calendar and was so excited when I received an invitation to review from Inky Monster. Christina Bauer is definitely one of my favourite authors and I just love Inky!! 




Characters & Storyline: 4/5


Myla & Lincoln: Myla & Lincoln are now the King and Queen of the Thrax. I loved the chemistry between them as always just on a different level this time around. We see a completely different side to Myla who is no longer the feisty young quasi but now a protective Mother and Queen who would do anything and go to any lengths to save her son. They have both grown up quite a bit and I enjoyed seeing the tender side of Lincoln. They are still a kickass team, especially when they venture into Hell to save their son Maxon. 

Maxon: Maxon is adorable. He just crawls into your heart & makes himself comfy! I think we are going to see amazing things from him in this series when he grows up. Connor & Octavia: They surprised me! We uncover Connor's secret and discover why he has behaved in certain ways. Hildy: Initially I was a bit unsure of Hildy and her role in the story. She went on to become on of my favourite characters! Xavier: Myla's dad is awesome - I still love him! 

I missed Walker & the igni's presence. They do make an appearance but only on a small scale. 

Plot, Pace, Writing style: 4/5  
Christina's writing style is easy to follow and the plot was good. Some of the twists were easy to see and others were quite a surprise. The pace of the story was quick. I would have enjoyed a few more scenes with Hildy and Maxon, and maybe a bit more detail in some of the other scenes. Ultimately it was an enjoyable read. 

Cover talk: 4/5
I liked the cover and understood it a bit better after having read the story. 

Final Thoughts: 
This was a good addition to the series and an enjoyable read.
