Years have passed since Myla Lewis last fought gladiator-style in Purgatory's Arena. Now, she’s fighting again, only this time in Hell. And the stakes have never been higher. The demon King of Hell, Armageddon, has kidnapped Myla and Lincoln’s young son, Maxon.

In the wake of Maxon’s abduction, all the after-realms calling for war, and no one shouts louder than Lincoln. Myl

So... I don't know why the story of ARMAGEDDON (book six) came out of my head before THRAX (book four) and THE DARK LANDS (book five), but it did! That's how writer-me rolls. Many times, business-me wants to take writer-me out and punch her in the throat :-)

Long story short, THRAX is available now and the DARK LANDS comes out this fall. After that, I go back to Lincoln and Myla's kids with the ANGELBOUND OFFSPRING series. Oh, and I'm also doing more novellas from Lincoln's point of view that go between the ANGELBOUND ORIGINS stories. I just launched a prequel novella DUTY BOUND and the next one there is BETROTHED which is between books 1 and 2.

Hope this helps...and thanks for reading!(less)

I have to be honest. I almost DNF'd this book at around 23%. I didn't like Myla anymore and it seemed like the whole firing of the night nanny thing was just wtfuckery.
I loved the first book in this series Angelbound and enjoyed the second one Scala so I didn't want to give up these characters without a fight.
It seemed like Myla was raising a spoiled brat and that being queen had gone to her head. After the rough beginning the book did get better. Myla and Lincoln break into hell to save Maxon

Armageddon is book three in the Angelbound series by Christina Bauer. First, I just want to say that I am so very glad I stayed with this series. Each book has gotten better and better and this one is my favorite of all three. I loved it! It was fast paced and I totally loved all of the characters. Well, not the bad guys.

My Summary:

It’s been five years since the events of Angelbound. Myla and Lincoln are now married with a three year old little boy, Maxom.

The king of hell, Armegeddeon (No the subtitle isn’t referring to the end of the world) has been plotting his revenge against Myla since she sent him back to hell. And what better way to get back at her than by threatening her son?

My Review:
Maja (The Nocturnal Library)
Angelbound is one of those series I discovered completely by accident and talked about it to anyone willing to listen. What I loved about it above all else is that it was completely free of the usual YA tropes, new, 100% fresh and often bold in the way it approached things. This applied to romance more than anything else, of course, and Myla and Lincoln quickly became my favorite couple in YA fiction.

Armageddon brings some significant changes to the series. Five years have passed between books,
I received an ARC through NetGalley.

Armageddon was certainly not the finale I was expecting. It's a few years into the future. Myla and Lincoln are married, have inherited the Thrax throne from his parents, and have a three year old son, Maxon. All seems peaceful in Purgatory and Antrum, at least until Maxon is kidnapped and taken to hell by Armageddon. Now, Myla and Lincoln have to break into Hell, get their son back, and kill the king of Hell once and for all.

Myla & Lincoln: Myla & Lincoln are now the King and Queen of the Thrax. I loved the chemistry between them as always just on a different level this time around. We see a completely different side to Myla who is no longer the feisty young quasi but now a protective Mother and Queen who would do anything and go to any lengths to save her son. They have both grown up quite a bit and I enjoyed seeing the tender side of Lincoln. They are still a kickass team, especially when they venture into ...more

I wasn't really sure I would enjoy ARMAGEDDON seeing as so much time has passed since the ending of SCALA and they're now parents. I was worried I wouldn't be able to get into the new setting. I was wrong. I was instantly able to reconnect with both Myla and Lincoln and fell in love with their little man, Maxon.

ARMAGEDDON felt a lot shorter than the previous 2 books. There was a lot of action, but the pages really flew by. The major happenings involved Maxon, their son, getting kidnapped by The

Lincoln takes my hand in his. “We can do this,” he says in a low voice.
The cool resolve in his mismatched eyes thrums through me. My spine straightens; my heart rate slows. My wrath demon unfurls inside my soul, heating my blood with rage.
Fuck Armageddon. We’re getting our kid back.

Well, I shouldn't have worried about the five year jump this book made, because it was awesome.

Some books can be imperfect and their issues can hinder your enjoyment of the experience, they can have you finding yourself annoyed or irritated by the glaring problems or lack of continuity, but with some books, those things don't matter. The Angelbound is the perfectly example. Is each instalment without faults? No, at least, it doesn't feel to me like it's faultless, but this has never been an issue for me. I never expect perfection, nor a story written with lyrical prose and deep, intense e ...more

Armageddon is the third book in the ‘Angelbound’ series and it was just as fab as the rest.
Five years have passed and we find out that Myla and Lincoln are now married, King & Queen of the Thrax and parents to 3yr old Maxon – who is already showing power and is the Scala Heir. As the title suggests, Armageddon is back and he wants revenge, he will accomplish this by kidnapping Maxon, knowing that he will start a war but hoping
I really wish I could give this 5 stars like I did the previous books but it just didn't work quite as well for me like the other two books did.

From the very beginning of Armageddon I felt almost as if I had accidentally skipped one or two books, so much had changed between this book and the last that it really hindered my ability to make a strong connection with the story.

There were a few things that I really missed in this book and they were -

I've loved the previous books in this series as they were quite a breathe of fresh air into the supernatural/paranormal scene, so I was really looking forward to reading the third instalment on the series!

I was a bit thrown when I started reading cause quite some time has passed between the previous book and this one. I think a lil over 3 years already, so it was a bit shocking to find that they had been married and ruling over Thrax and Purgatory and that they have a 3 year old son!

I finished this book quite a (long) while ago (like months, or a year?) and I just realised that I haven't posted any review of it. It might have slipped in my mind somewhere, (deeply deeply! sorry about that) I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

This book started far after the last instalment ends. Our favourite protagonists Myla and Lincoln is now happily married with a third year old son Maxon! as a super fan of the series since the beginning, I was a little worried

Wow! What a rush! I couldn't put this one down for even a second. It was one of those stay up all night and read `one more chapter' until there are none left.
There's an intensity to this book that you feel throughout the novel. Christina Bauer story is well laid out and intricately put together making everything completely and vividly real. This is Sci fi yet extremely exciting story. Everything comes together in such a magnificent manner to create a world that is very believable and the lives o
Iris (Paranormal Cravings Book Reviews)
Although you have in the beginning the feeling you have missed a piece in the story line it picks up very quick. Each book has gotten better and better and this one is my favorite of all three. It was great seeing how Myla has grown, but also seeing how she managed to stay herself at the same time.

The writing was a little different than the first books. Less fillings but more world-building. That in combination with the romance and paranormal elements a amazing new installment for this series.

Unlike both Angelbound and Scala, I hadn't read this book. In fact, I remember wanting to read it, and life got in the way. I'm just so glad that this series brought me back to it, especially since I got to read all three books consecutively.

In the epic conclusion of the Angelbound Origin series, Myla goes on yet another action-packed adventure, just, this time, in Hell. I knew at some point that she would end up there, but what I didn't expect is the number of years that had passed along with

The faboo conclusion to the Angelbound Origins series which was written before some of the middle stuff in the series (wedding, baby) for a long list of reasons that author Christina Bauer explains by saying: "I don't know; it came out of my head that way." Ah, those creative types!!!! A great ending -- enjoy the ride and read it today!

Ok, I've read this book twice already. I can't stress how much I love this series. Myla's transition from young woman to mommy is flawless. Her relationship with Lincoln is hot as ever. Cant wait to read book #4.

Great ending

There were only 3 books in the series when I purchased it some time ago. I finally decide to read it, and after book 2, I notice my book 3 has changed to book 5. What? There are 2 new books listed for the middle of the series. I did read the new book 3 because it's released. (I loved it) Book 4 comes out September 2017. As much as I enjoyed this series, I just read the ending. No desire to go backward.

I truly enjoyed this story. I had so much fun reading each book. Armageddon did ha

This time, we are going to hell.
In this series we started in Purgatory, we visited Heaven, and Antrum, and even Earth. The only place we haven't been too yet was Hell. And I guess it was time to go check on Armageddon once and for all.
This time Aldred the creep is back, even though he is dead he can still be a pain and he decided to kidnap Maxon and give him to Armageddon because he is just mean like that. Seriously the guy doesn't even have a game anymore he just like to be super mean to peopl

I liked it but wanted more. This one felt like it was missing some special ingredient.

I loved that time had passed and Myla and Lincoln were now married with a child. I found it interesting that this child was the obsession of Hell. The wanted this child and to get him back Myla was willing to burn it down. She was not so willing to sacrifice millions of lives. I respected her for that.

Overall, this book had a decent storyline. I still am a big fan of Christina Bauer's original ideas.
However, I think that some of the plot holes and inconsistencies made this book less enjoyable. I felt compelled to finish the series but sadly, I don't think I will start a new one from this author mostly because of the writing.

4 stars for creativity and plot, but the same issue came up here (hence the wanting to give it 2 stars, then splitting the difference at 3), as it did with the first two books. The dialogue/writing was stilted and awkward. As a result, minor characters were gypped in their storylines.

I honestly read this book for Myla. I love that girl, and I liked watching her do the whole mommy/warrior thing.

This is the last book in the trilogy Angelbound, and it begins with a married Lincoln and Myla (yay!),

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, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too. Christina lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-in ...more
