About this ebook

"Angels, demons and romance… YES!" - C.S., Amazon

"So addicting! Highly recommend!" – Diary Of A Wannabe Writer

"I. LOVE. LINCOLN." – Antonella’s Book World


When it comes to fighting, Prince Lincoln is the greatest demon killer in the history of his people, the thrax. Now Lincoln faces his hardest fight yet, and it’s not on a traditional battlefield. It’s all because something unexpected has come to pass…


The part-angel prince has fallen for a quasi-demon girl. Hard.


Trouble is, Lincoln’s people see anyone demonic as an enemy be hunted. Sadly, the girl who’s stolen Lincoln’s heart, a quasi-demon named Myla Lewis, soon becomes the number one target of Lincoln’s own fighting force. It’s something the High Prince of the Thrax won’t stand for. At all.


No matter what, Lincoln will protect his Myla.

Admittedly, I read the Angelbound Lincoln series out of order.. but I really enjoyed both the pre-quel and the third book. So, I expected to love one that centered on the Thrax prince himself.. even more. 'Lincoln,' book two in the series, somehow didn't read as smoothly to me as either of the others. The second installment follows Prince Lincoln, a part-angel demon killer, as he comes into his own. He has fallen for a quasi-demon girl named Myla.. but his people see anyone demonic as the enemy.. and the PITA neighboring kingdom of Acca is determined to win the right to hunt her. In an effort to protect her, he's been a first class jerk to keep her at a distance from him, but as time has passed.. he's only become more enamored and more aware that the precariousness of her situation continues to grow. As I've said before.. Bauer has done a wonderful job with the world building. The races she employs in her stories are a quirky, but fascinating combination of beings.. the magic bases are interesting, and the villains are nothing if not persistent. Still, this book felt off for me. Perhaps I've just grown tired of the first person storytelling style, but I think Prince Lincoln's voice just doesn't resonate well with me at times. I enjoy him when he's causing the villains problems, but when he's mooning about over his girl.. it's all rather dull. There's just not a lot of depth there with any of the characters. Furthermore, while he seems to be able to spend ample time describing the most minute detail about Myla, there's a lot of story developing throughout the book.. and those pieces feel very rushed. It's like a bare minimum of words were used to get the most information into the shortest span of time possible so that he could go back to talking about his feelings. There are a ton of interesting characters in the book.. and they really don't see a lot of page time either. They're tools of convenience to further plot or deliver information to the reader, but they aren't allowed to crystalize into anything solid. In fact, the story may be a bit dialogue heavy.. relying on that and inner monologues to explain what's happening, instead of really letting the reader experience it first hand. I do have a couple of favorites though, Walker.. his Ghoul friend and Night, his spell casting mare.. are both fascinating. Myla is fine, same with Queen Ophelia. The sense of humor is there.. even if it doesn't actually make me laugh. Most of them are pretty likeable. All in all, it was still a fun read. Very light and nothing wrong with the writing. It just felt weaker to me than the other two. (More reviews like this at Betwixt The Sheets.) (I received this title as an ARC. All opinions are mine and freely given.)

Well I don’t know what to say , except Christina has done it again made fall in love with Lincoln again. It was great seeing Myla through Lincoln’s point of view. It made you realise how he could not be completely dazzled by Myla, when you know what his days look like. So even though some the story was familiar from Angelbound, most of the time it felt like a completely different story. I think Christine redeemed Lincoln completely, and you couldn’t help admire him. Myla as always is her usual snarky self and that’s why we all are addicted to reading about her. Lincoln definitely has his adventures, most of I really felt for Lincoln when you read about his life without Myla. A Great addiction to the Angelbound family.

PROOF READING IS ABYSMAL! I enjoyed this book quite a bit. However I do wish that the proof reader would ensure that the book flows properly. There are several instances of misspelling as well as sentences that make no sense. I find it infuriating to read a book and have to keep stopping in order to rethink how the words are interpreted It is almost as if they have been translated from a different language. So because of this I can only give the book 2 stars.

About the author

Christina Bauer believes 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-insane golden retriever, Ruby.
