Book Review: Scala – Angelbound, Book 2

NOTE: I have not yet written a review for the first book in this series, though I plan to. I wanted to go ahead and post this one since I had it ready.

Scala (Angelbound, #2)Scala by Christina Bauer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I got the first “Angelbound” book as part of Ink Monsters “Angels & Alphas: An Angelbound and Becoming Alpha Bundle” package. Being something of a werewolf fan, I was mostly interested in the Alpha part of the book, but decided to go ahead and read for the Angels part as well since it was there. I’m glad that I did – it’s a quirky story set in one of the most warped visions of Purgatory I’ve come across that has a lot of humor to it, a spunky as Hell quasi-demon as its heroine, family secrets, romance and – of course – a great destiny to be filled.

This second book picks up shortly after the first one leaves off, and we see our heroine – Myla – adjusting to her new life. Unfortunately, an old nemesis has come back try and take “back” some things she claims Myla “stole” from her. The reader knows from the start that it’s the nemesis trying to do the stealing, but for the people living in Purgatory, it’s not so clear. Myla must gather her friends and family in order to hold on to what is rightfully hers. The middle section of the book – where some of the dramatic tension should be mounting – is pretty slow, but the first part of the book is great as is the ending. And I absolutely love Myla’s relationship with her beloved Lincoln. They are a believable couple in the kind of heightened world that the author has provided and are really cute and how they interact. This isn’t terribly long book – nor is the first one – so if you’re looking for something kind of light and fun and don’t mind a bit of a slog through a few chapters in the middle, I would definitely recommend it.
