“Myla is a magnificent heroine, fierce and outspoken, hilarious and mischievous … And did I mention that her demon tail is sentient? Best. Sidekick. Ever.” – The Nocturnal Library

Myla Lewis has her life back. Wife. Mother. Queen. Great Scala. Queen of the Thrax. Yay! Then one day, Myla runs across a supernatural waterfall that makes her igni screech like crazy. Our heroine speaks the fateful words, “Some days, I wish I weren’t the Great Scala.”

The waterfall grants her wish.

A moment later, Myla is back at Purgatory High. No husband. No child. No powers beyond her old quasi days. And without Myla around as the Great Scala, all quasis now live under Armageddon’s rule. That sucks. Hard. So Myla sneaks into Antrum—she simply must find Lincoln and figure this out. Once she arrives, two problems arise.

First, her husband doesn’t know her. At all.

Second, Lincoln is married to someone else.

My Review:

5 Out Of 5 Stars

Genre: Angels, Romance, Royal-Court, Supernatural, Suspense--

Keep in mind that if you are not familiar (like really super familiar, also know as you read all the previous books in order) then I very much do not recommend jumping in here. Quasi Redux basically throws the reader (and you know, the main characters) right into the action with tons of danger- and a scary megaladon encounter- and absolutely no backstory.

I will read anything that deals with Myla and Lincoln and this super intricate angel/demon supernatural world but I was a little hesitant to start this book because the synopsis sounded a little sad and after having read Thrax and experiencing the heart break that was the Lincon/Myla situation there, I didn't know if I was up for more heartbreak. But since I had to know what would happen, I of course had to pick Quasi Redux up. I was so surprised (in the best of ways) to find that this was sorta, kinda a Beauty and the Beast retelling. I am such a sucker for fairytale retellings and Beauty and the Beast is hands down my favorite, and having Myla and Lincoln inserted into this storyline (with of course all the action, danger, fighting and sarcasm provided by Myla- she is not the sweet soft spoken Beauty of the fairytale and I love that about her.

Overall this was another solid installment in the Angelbound series that I am so glad I did not miss. Who would have thought that prehistoric sharks, fairytales, forced marriage, prison escapes, magical yard sales, The Great Scala action figured and lawn ornaments and curses would all mesh so well into a fast paced, entertaining story that I could not put down. I really like how the author has the ability to keep this storyline fresh, always a pleasant surprise that keeps me guessing and completely engaged. I am so here for the Myla/Lincoln HEA.
