Prince Maxon may be twenty-two years old now, but he’s still haunted by his boyhood abduction and torture in Hell. To deal with his past, Maxon limits his present-day activities to killing demons and seducing women. No long-term relationships. No combat too dangerous. No problem, right?
Maxon’s life has stalled out. The old thrills aren’t there anymore, either on the battlefield or in the bedroom. While staking out his next fight, Maxon meets what seems like just another girl after a good time. What he gets is a close encounter with Lianna, a lady warrior with ties to the mysterious elemental rulers called the monarkki. It’s love at first fight. Trouble is, Lianna’s running from a dark history of her own, and her elemental enemies are closing in. When Lianna gets taken, Maxon realizes that after years of wrong choices and dead ends, the right woman is worth risking it all.
You probably don’t know this but the Angel bound series is another favorite series of mine. I have read every book in the series and I was soo excited to get an arc copy from Netgalley. I admit I had to brush up on the characters as it had been quite a while since I read the last book. And in this one little 3-year-old Maxon is all grown up and is now 22. And he is not just thrax but also part demon which makes him the Scala heir after his mother Myla. But Maxon still has nightmares from being kidnapped by Armageddon and has suddenly lost the thrill of a good fight and everything I suppose. Until he meets Lianna a thrax warrior who has just been made the new water monarkki. Lianna is everything Maxon needs to get him back on track but she also has her own history and demons she is fighting. And right now she is on the run from Zephyr who wants her life force for his own. Maxon and Lainna slowly start to form a friendship that neither of them thought was possible and when Lianna gets kidnapped it’s up to Maxon to save her.
The story was a bit predictable and cheesy but I still loved it from beginning to end, I thought Maxon was a bit too much of a lad with a potty mouth but then again he is just 22 so what else is new. I like that his parents made a small appearance in the book it gave the Angel bound series a lot more continuity.
I am really trying not to give anything away in this book because I want you to read it for yourself as you will definitely love it.
