Prince Maxon may be twenty-two years old now, but he’s still haunted by his boyhood abduction and torture in Hell. To deal with his past, Maxon limits his present-day activities to killing demons and seducing women. No long-term relationships. No combat too dangerous. No problem, right?
Maxon’s life has stalled out. The old thrills aren’t there anymore, either on the battlefield or in the bedroom. While staking out his next fight, Maxon meets what seems like just another girl after a good time. What he gets is a close encounter with Lianna, a lady warrior with ties to the mysterious elemental rulers called the monarkki. It’s love at first fight. Trouble is, Lianna’s running from a dark history of her own, and her elemental enemies are closing in. When Lianna gets taken, Maxon realizes that after years of wrong choices and dead ends, the right woman is worth risking it all.

I loved the romance in this novel. It was so well developed that my heart was overjoyed by it. Maxon and Lianna were amazing characters, they were both spunky and sassy. I love them. Aside from the relationships, the action scenes and powers/ablities were truly epic. I have a slight love with the dragons tails that Maxon and his mother have. They are some of the coolest things I have ever read about. Beyond that I love were Christina is taking the Angelbound universe, and I mean universe. Christina has thoroughly set the stage for any stories she wants to do from this point out. Now all of the cultures are set and the social constructs set. I love the introduction of elemental powers into the Angelbound series in this novel. I love it!

I really enjoyed this book and seeing the man Maxon has grown in to. At the same time it was great to revisit Maxon’s parents. The book builds, of course, to the ultimate epic battle which had my adrenaline in overdrive. And I loved the ending. The synopsis of the book says you could enjoy this as a stand alone which I guess you could but why miss how it all started? You would enjoy it so much more if you start at the beginning and enjoy the whole series. I look forward to the next book due out in about six months.

Action is a check but it would be missing so much without some romance. Oh yes it has that as well, so double check. Lianna and Maxon have an initial attraction as two attractive people do but as they get to know one another the dynamic changes naturally and blossoms into something so sweet it will make anyone swoon. Maxon is our semi brooding playboy prince who has some past issues to work through who has never allowed himself to really care for a member of the opposite sex aside from family. Lianna herself has some romance issues in her past and present to deal with and knows very well of Maxon’s reputation with the ladies. Watching as they work together and get to know more about one another it just heats up the kindle screen.

I absolutely loved this book. It was a perfect continuation of the series.
Maxon was incredible and Lianna was also a very strong heroine.
I just delved right into the book and didn’t stop till I finished. It was that well written.
I was so happy to continue the journey started in Angelbound.
Fantastic series and I can’t wait for Portia to come out.
