***Experience the events of Angelbound from Prince Lincoln’s point of view…And then enjoy an all-new part of his story!***

When it comes to fighting demons, Prince Lincoln is the greatest warrior in the history of his people, the thrax. Now Lincoln faces his hardest fight yet…and it’s not on a traditional battlefield.

Lincoln is falling in love. And the girl is part demon.

Between a fated dance at the Ryder mansion…a life-changing walk through a hedgerow maze…and a massive battle with none other than the King of Hell…Lincoln realizes that he wants to share his life with Myla Lewis, the part-demon girl who has captured his heart. However, an evil thrax noble—the powerful Earl of Acca—is prepared to do anything to stop Lincoln and Myla from having a future.

But Lincoln won’t give up on his Myla. Ever.

To fight Aldred, Lincoln works to create a different kind of marriage—an Alliance of the lesser thrax houses against Acca. Sadly, just as Lincoln starts to makes some progress, the nobles who’ve joined his Alliance begin to vanish. Is Aldred behind the disappearances, or is someone else vying for power? When Lincoln discovers the truth, it upends his entire world, threatening his future with Myla in ways no one could ever have imagined.

“I absolutely love Christina Bauer’s style, full of action, intense scenes, and characters that will test one’s imaginations to the max!” – Tome Tender Book Blog

My Review:

5 Out Of 5 Stars

Genre: Angels, Another-World, Mystery, Romance, Royal-Court, Supernatural, Suspense--

I have loved getting this look into Lincoln's head, it really puts a new spin on the Lincoln I remember from the Angelbound series. I have always liked his character, but getting this insight to his feelings and motivations has been very insightful and I love it. Let's also mention how very proper and princely it is that he liked to send gift baskets for favors done (even if it is worms or 80's mixed tapes). It made me laugh every time that he contemplated a gift.

I also loved the brief stolen glimpses of Myla, of how I could see her actions that I remember so well from Angelbound but this time watch her through Lincoln's eyes. She is just as cool and fearless as I have always found her to be, but now a new layer of her sex appeal has been added to the book which never existed before (since she was our narrator and it would have been weird). In case you were wondering, Lincoln has always found her to be wonderful, even while pretending to act like a jerk- and boy was I glad to see the why's behind his previous behavior.

I enjoyed how while there were hints of the plot I already know, this was a complete story itself, with a mystery, action and villain that I had never heard of or experienced before. I thought that this was going to be a novella like Duty Bound, but I was pleasantly surprised that Lincoln was a full length book.

This was a fun, interesting new adventure with characters that I have already established a relationship with and love. I really hope that there will be another Lincoln POV to come.

I am voluntarily reviewing a complimentary copy of this book.

    1. It was so good, but I may just be a Lincoln fangirl. But I am ok with that!
