Meet the author: Christina Bauer

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, witches, dragons, and other random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Christina lives in Newton, MA along with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.

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.

“I’m virtually speechless when it comes to this novel.  I have not found an author that I adore the writing style of this much since Jennifer L. Armentrout.  The world that this author created was amazing.  It was so in depth with back stories and history.  I loved it.”

“Unfortunately for me, I started reading the book before going to sleep and then ended up staying waaaaay past my bedtime, because I didn’t want to put the book down! While I’ve already pointed out that there is great fight scenes, romance, mystery, and drama, there is also humor, which makes the book so entertaining! Also, the author writes in such a descriptive way that it’s fast-paced and feels like I’m watching a movie since I was able to visualize the story so easily!”

Angelbound was a unique twist on a number of different plot points. There are angels, demons and so much more that intertwine together to create a fascinating set of characters in a mystical land much like our own, but at the same time so very different. A definite winner in my book, this is one you won’t want to put down.”

“I was unprepared for how much I was going to love Angelbound. I read what is not a short book in 3 days, partly because I stayed up way too late on two of those days reading it.”
