“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.

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!!



A Brandy's Book Nook Review for Xpresso Book Tours
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐



Myla is back, and just as sassy as ever. Her son is growing at a faster rate than normal, and a new danger is brewing. Myla’s adopted brother Walker is on a mission to save his brother from a new enemy who wants to release Lucifer, the most dangerous archangel ever. So Myla and Lincoln leave their son with her parents, which leads to some really hilarious moments, and set off to help Walker when he goes missing. There is a new surprise with a big bad lava angel, and a hidden place even Lincoln didn’t know about. There is lots of magic, battles, and what seemed to me a slightly darker tone to this book than the last one.

I gave this book five stars because one, it has no dull moments. It had my attention from the start. Everything from the fighting to the cute little moments with the baby. Two, it really shows how the character has grown. Myla sucks it up and does what has to be done, even giving her blessing to adoring worshipers. And lastly, the detail to the story. I can picture exactly how things are done, and what their location looks like. Nothing is vague even in battle, giving it that extra bit of reality.
