Two days back to back! This one is a bit late but had a bit of an injury on the hand which makes this a tad bit more difficult, but I can manage. As promised, today I’m reviewing the other book to release yesterday for Ink Monster, and that is Armageddon the 3rd book in the Angelbound series written by Christina Bauer. I received this as an ARC from NetGalley and Ink Monster for my honest review. There will be spoilers for the first 2 books in her and again, if you haven’t started the series yet I highly recommend it. If you want to check out my reviews of Angelbound or Scala click the titles then come back. Also, the first book in the series is also in a bind-up with Becoming Alpha.
So I went into this book with no information on what it was about. I didn’t look at the synopsis or anything. I knew it was book 3 in a series I love and had Myla on the cover looking all bad ass in her fighting suit and her dragon tail ready for action. Once I was a few pages in I did go back and read the start which cleared up my confusion. This book skips ahead and takes place 5 years from where Scala left off. Once confirming I hadn’t missed anything important, like a novella, in there somewhere I was good to go once more. We pick up the story with Myla and Lincoln married and splitting their time between Purgatory and Thrax, after all they are King and Queen. They also have a little boy named Maxon, yes it looks like Myla’s inner lust demon was finally let out on Lincoln. Things have been relatively good and drama free but Myla needs to put her fighting suit back on and fight her biggest battle yet, in Hell. She'll face Armageddon, The King of Hell, himself when he kidnaps her son. A war between the after-realms is emanate and will likely result in millions of lives lost. So Myla devises her own plan, a small attack team to rescue her son and avoid war.
Armageddon is another quick read from Ink Monster. They are wonderful at packing a story full of all the good things but keeping the pacing moving along without a single slow spot so you sit down to read and get up when it's finished. I love reading about Myla, she is such a kick ass character, literally she used to fight in the arena! Now she has her Scala powers, and the power that comes from being a Queen of the Thrax and the daughter of the president of Purgatory. She is also part fury demon and a mother and you don't mess with a mothers child and not deal with her wrath. There is a lot going on in the story and at first the 5 year skip made me sad, so much stuff we missed, but then after thinking about it, doing this they had a different story to tell instead of risking any repeating.

So there is plenty of non-stop action going on in the story, given. There is also a new emotional attachment. Myla and Lincoln are parents, which means carving out alone time for themselves between their busy schedules. There is still great chemistry between those two and they are able to bring out the best in one another. The plot of this story is fast paced and you are drawn quickly into the world once more, trying to figure out how Armageddon plans to get his hands on Myla and Lincoln's son and then how to get him back without playing into a trap.
I give this book 5 Igni easily and can't wait for the next one to come out. If you like quick reads with great characters that get your heart racing, action, and suspense check out the Angelbound series.
