TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Rhodes (Angelbound Offspring #4) by Christina Bauer
Rhodes (Angelbound Offspring #4) - Christina Bauer

@XpressoTours, @CB_Bauer, #Fantasy, #YoungAdult, 4 out of 5 (very good)

 

Rhodes is the fourth book in the Angelbound Offspring series, and continues the story featuring Rhodes and Zinnia.

Zinnia is still living in the tower and visited by Rhodes whenever possible, which is difficult in itself as he is currently undergoing training. Huntress and Kaps, plus all the band members, help with Zinnia's idea on how to end things once and for all.

Rhodes is definitely a continuation to Zinnia, so even if you don't read the others (but why?), you should definitely read that one, otherwise you won't have the faintest idea about all the subtleties and nuances that are there. The world-building is just as good as all the others, and the connection between Rhodes and Zinnia is stronger than ever. Kaps doesn't play as big a part in this book, which I was thankful for. A favourite character of mine is Bash though. I would love for him to have a bigger role.

All in all, this was a great addition to the series that I thoroughly enjoyed. I can't wait to continue the series, and have no hesitation in recommending both the book and the series.

TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Zinnia (Angelbound Offspring #3) by Christina Bauer
Zinnia Special Edition (Angelbound Offspring #3) - Christina Bauer

@XpressoTours, @CB_Bauer, #Fantasy, #YoungAdult, 4 out of 5 (very good)

 

Zinnia is the third book in the Angelbound Offspring series, and this time it features the children of Portia and Tempest. I say children because Kaps plays just a big a role in this as Zinnia does. I know they are twins, but I really would have preferred for Zinnia's story to be less involved with Kaps. 

 

At a young age, Zinnia knows that Rhodes is her Rhana, and is happy with all the innocence that brings. However, enemies of the family do 'bad magic' and Zinnia is taken away, and her memories bound. Fast forward, and Zinnia is preparing herself for the ritual that will bring back Chimera when her only friend is taken from her. In a rebellious moment, she decides to take the last few days of her life for herself, and accidentally finds Rhodes.

 

This was a smooth read, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading. I loved how Zinnia was different, more formal and old school, to the others. Kaps I just found annoying. The connection between Rhodes and Zinnia was just as strong as before, and I loved how he was trying to help her without fully knowing the story.

 

A great addition to the series, and definitely recommended by me.

Acca (Angelbound Origins #3) - Christina Bauer

Acca is the 3rd book in the Angelbound Origins series and the 3rd book I have listened to on Audiobook. I love this series. I love seeing what Myla is going to get herself into next. So far we have seen her come from a almost normal teenager to being engaged and becoming the Scala of the After Realm and now finally She and Lincoln are getting married. If they can stay out of jail and live long enough. 

 

This book was one of my favorite so far. Myla is actually running things now. Lincoln and Myla have to get the proof needed to finally get the House of Acca put into prison. They get it but it is stolen before they can use it. To get the Rixa Codex back which holds the recoded proof they need they have to make a quick trip to Earth. Once on Earth they have to fight the Acca there too, and be back in time for not only court but their wedding day. 

 

I cannot wait for the next book in this series to see if things gt more intense or calm down a little bit while Myla and Lincoln enjoy their new wedded bliss. And also to see if their is a little Myla or Lincoln on the way. 

 

There are a few colorful words in the book but there is no strong sex scenes. There are 2 scenes in this book but they leave the actual act to your imagination instead of spelling it all out for you.

Scala (Angelbound Origins #2) by Christina Bauer
Scala (Angelbound Origins) (Volume 2) - Christina Bauer

Scala is the 2nd book in the Angelbound series by Christina Bauer. This book continues Myla Lewis new life as the Great Scala. So you should really read or listen to the first book in the series before starting this book. Myla pretty much runs Purgatory, she crosses over souls to their afterlife. At the minute a magical item called Lucifer's orb is making her job impossible. If Myla tries to cross over a spirit they will go straight to Hell. So Myla has decided not to cross anyone over until she can figure out what is going on. But she better hurry, she is running out of room for the souls.

Myla's arch rival Lady Adair is back also. She has decided to take back her life and everything that she believes Myla has stolen from her. The Scala title and Lincoln being her top 2 priorities. Myla and her family and friends are not going to let this happen.

The Angelbound series is a lot of fun to listen to for me. I love Myla's attitude on everything. Christina Bauer herself narrates the story on the audio book and does an awesome job. I love hearing her read. She really brings the story to life.

Audio Book Review: Angelbound By Christina Bauer
Angelbound (Angelbound Origins #1) - Christina Bauer

 

This was such a long winded novel. As much as I enjoyed it, I have quite a few negative things to say about it as a whole. This was a 14 hour audiobook. I believe this story could have been cut in half with less inner monologue, more flashbacks and less useless drama. Everything was happening in "real time" which made it so a scene that could last 2 minutes in a flashback actually lasted an hour because the character had to physically get there and back.

 

Maybe it's just me, but it also seemed like every female character with the exception of Myla, Prince Lincoln's mother (the queen) and the Angel Queen (she's not an actual queen, I just forget her name) seemed so ditzy and air headed. It started getting on my nerves by the fourth hour of the audiobook. It almost made me stop listening to this book altogether. 

 

I also despised all the high school drama. I still don't understand what that added to the overall plot line (which is still a very interesting concept). It made me roll my eyes SO much. What the heck kind of friend is Sissy anyway? I'd rather be by myself than call her a friend.

 

Myla was a very entertaining character. I liked her inner monologues for the most part. Her being a quasi-demon with a tale was awesome. She seemed to be intellectually superior to almost everyone because she didn't take anyone's crap. 

 

Prince Lincoln almost lost me in the beginning because he was so standoffish and a complete jerk. It also didn't help that it took seven hours into the audiobook for him to stop being said jerk and start to move the story along. After that Myla and him were a very cute couple.

 

The ending redeemed this story somewhat. It was fast paced and action packed. It's what I wish this story had felt like from the beginning. I've come to the conclusion that I prefer more straightforward stories with less fillers and drama. 

 

The Audio Book:

 

 

The narrating was good. I liked that the intonation changed to help me differentiate what was inner monologue and what was being said. I disliked the 'voices' for Myla's mother, Sissy and every supporting female character because as much as they were airheads the voices just made it all that much more unbelievable and incredibly annoying in the long term.
