Eighteen year old Myla Lewis is a girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. She’s not your every day quasi-demon, half-demon and half-human, girl. For the past five years, Myla has lived for the days she gets to fight in Purgatory’s arena. When souls want a trial by combat for their right to enter heaven or hell, they go up against her, and she hasn’t lost a battle yet.
But as she starts her senior year at Purgatory High, the arena fights aren’t enough to keep her spirits up anymore. When the demons start to act weird, even for demons, and the King of the Demons, Armageddon, shows up at Myla’s school, she knows that things are changing and it’s not looking good for the quasi-demons. Myla starts to question everything, and doesn’t like the answers she finds. What happened seventeen years ago that turned the quasi-demons into slave labour? Why was her mom always so sad? And why won’t anyone tell her who her father is? Things heat up when Myla meets Lincoln, the High Prince of the Thrax, a super sexy half-human and half-angel demon hunter. But what’s a quasi-demon girl to do when she falls for a demon hunter? It’s a good thing that Myla’s not afraid of breaking a few rules. With a love worth fighting for, Myla’s going to shake up Purgatory.

This book follows the life of Myla – a quasi demon living in purgatory – who loves to kick ass. She is a fighter demon who is taken to the arena to fight souls who are being sent to hell, which she loves.
She is determined to find out who her dad is, and what happened to her mother before the demon war. She begins to investigate what happened when an angel gives her bits of the past in her dreams in order for her to put the pieces of the puzzle together.
In the meantime, Myla is falling in love with the high prince of the Thrax – a warrior race – who sees her as nothing but a demon, a lower race.
The pair of them get closer and their feelings become obvious. But there is one issue – the Prince is supposedly promised to another woman – who Myla can’t stand. I really wanted to find out if the two of them get together in the end.
Things in purgatory are changing, and not for the better. Myla needs to find out what is happening, and figure out a way to stop it before history repeats itself and people get hurt. As well as this, she is working on finding out what happened to her mum in the past and why she is always so sad, and so overprotective.
I liked the main character – Myla. She was a strong and independent quasi-demon. She loved to kick ass and be the best. She was easy to like, and you were automatically on her side through the whole book. She is the type of person that you want to be – strong and brave.
Lincoln, on the other hand, was a but of a douche. In the beginning at least. As the story goes on, he becomes a character that I like. As his feelings for Myla develop, he turns into a more likeable character and all of a sudden, you hope that he gets his happy ever after.
The plot development of the story was so interesting, and I couldn’t get enough of it. I just wanted to know what happens to the characters. All main characters also develop throughout the story, growing and changing.
I really enjoyed this book, and I cannot wait to get into the next book in the series 🙂 Thank you to Christina Bauer for sending me the audio book and to YA Bound Book Tours for organising the tour.
