Scala (Angelbound, #2)
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?



This book is definitely a mouth-watering chocolate cake for me, I chomp it all in a few hours. I must be hungry. I don't think I'll write my version of the summary now (maybe later I'll add it here) because I am super excited to tell you guys that this book is worth waiting for months.

The main character, Myla Lewis, who is also the Great Scala (the one and only who could move souls to hell and heaven) looked super bad-ass in her Scala robes and igni (some kind of power, Scala's power...). God, I love her. And when I say I love Myla, of course I love her partner in crime slash boyfriend slash (later on) *****ee, Lincoln the Thrax (half human half angel warriors who hunt demons) prince. He's... I'm out of words. The chemistry between them is pure love I'm telling you. It was so damn sweet that I just have to quote it. 

"Listen to me, Myla. You will be my Queen one day, mark my words. Adair will never come between us"

After Angelbound (the first book) I never thought I would actually see Adair again, the annoying girl from book one. She told everyone that she's Scala (she's not) and even got someone to cast some witchy spell so it was believable that she's Scala, this all happened in book one don't worry. When Adair confess that she's fake and everything I thought it was the end, but then she's here again. With extra bitchiness in her sleeves. God I want to kill her. Well that's enough about the characters.

The plot is so much fun! Well, I know it's not fun for Myla. The conflict felt so tough and unsolvable that you just can't help reading more and more. I have no idea how the characters would overcome it before. Thumbs up! And just like the first book, Christina Bauer's writing style is one of my favorites. Enough said. I am dying to read the next book!
