Book Review
Another amazing book in the Angelbound series! This is one of my favourite series and I absolutely cannot wait to read the next book, as well as the last one in the series.

We continue the story basically where Scala left off. After the death of Adair, Aldred goes straight to work to ruin the lives of Myla and Lincoln. This time, while Myla and Lincoln are out gathering evidence to send the House of Acca to prison, all their evidence is stolen and the guard killed. With Myla and Lincoln about to be sent to jail, they manage to escape with the help of Myla's dad and find themselves on Earth. Where they learn that Aldred may be trying to bring back Armageddon for good. Will they be able to clear their names and prevent Armageddon from coming back before its too late?

Being totally honest, I was really worried that this book was not going to be as good at the others in this series. I found that it started out a bit slow, and it was a bit boring in the beginning. I just couldn't read the whole thing, and kept putting the book down. It wasn't till about 60 or 70% into the book where the action and storyline really had me hooked and I just read the rest in one sitting. Usually Christina Bauer is really good with making the whole book exciting, but unfortunately this one wasn't it. 

If you have read the previous books in this series, definitely give this one a chance. Once you get past the beginning, the ending is definitely worth it. I would read the whole book over again just to get to that part.

If you haven't read the first books, I definitely recommend reading those first. This is a fantastic series for all fans of fantasy and action. Take my word for it, you will love it.

Audiobook Review
I've already mentioned this in my audiobook review of Scala, but I love the audiobooks so much more than the print books. I love everything about them. The pacing, Christina's reading and how much better the story flows.

When I read the print version, I found myself a bit bored (as you can see in the review above) in the beginning, but that didn't happen in the audiobook. I think it was mostly the tone of voice that Christina was reading in that had me really aware and paying attention to the book. She is able to narrate so well that even the slightly boring parts can keep me engaged the whole time.

I've listened to the other audiobooks as well, and it really does sound like Christina is getting better at narrating as well. In the first few books, I was cracking up at a few voices she made and it was very similar level of engagement as when I read the books, but now I actually love the audiobooks a lot more, and definitely recommend listening the audiobooks over the print books if you're into that.

I'm so happy with how this audiobook turned out. Best of luck to Christina and her books & audiobooks in the future.
