OBS SPOILERS kan förekomma!
Handling: Eighteen year old Myla Lewis is a girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. She’s not your every day quasi-demon, half-demon and half-human, girl. For the past five years, Myla has lived for the days she gets to fight in Purgatory’s arena. When souls want a trial by combat for their right to enter heaven or hell, they go up against her, and she hasn’t lost a battle yet.
But as she starts her senior year at Purgatory High, the arena fights aren’t enough to keep her spirits up anymore. When the demons start to act weird, even for demons, and the King of the Demons, Armageddon, shows up at Myla’s school, she knows that things are changing and it’s not looking good for the quasi-demons. Myla starts to question everything, and doesn’t like the answers she finds. What happened seventeen years ago that turned the quasi-demons into slave labor? Why was her mom always so sad? And why won’t anyone tell her who her father is? Things heat up when Myla meets Lincoln, the High Prince of the Thrax, a super sexy half-human and half-angel demon hunter. But what’s a quasi-demon girl to do when she falls for a demon hunter? It’s a good thing that Myla’s not afraid of breaking a few rules. With a love worth fighting for, Myla’s going to shake up Purgatory.
|Overall this book was good, i liked the protagonist Myla. She is a funny kick ass girl, but of course when she started to like the prince she just needed to blush all the time…Okay not all the time but so much that i got irritated. I love the cover, it gets a feeling that she has power and that the girl on the cover has power and confidence.
In the whole book you are only reading from Mylas PoV, sometimes it got kind a boring. I wanted to read from Lincolns PoV or her best friend Cissy.
When Lincoln, the High Prince of the Thrax first appeared, I disliked him very much. I didn’t think there was any hope for his character. He was arrogant, stupid and a prideful jackass in the beginning. He for an example called the quiasis ”demons” , he refused to understand the diffrence while he acted so high and mighty. Well yeah that really pissed me off. But only a boy equally skilled and equally arrogant could ever hold Myla’s interest for a longer period of time, and the prophecies soon proved true ,they were indeed perfectly matched.
In the end i love them together and of course i am gonna read the next book in the trilogy. I can admit that I read the back of the last two books and it led to that I got to know a large spoiler… They ‘ve got a kid, you can guess who, Myla and Lincoln of course^^ Well that made them even more interesting, i love it when the main couple in a book gets a kid, it is soo cute!
I give it 3/5 stars
