Myla Lewis is now the Great Scala, and her job is to move souls out of purgatory to either Heaven or Hell. However, they are missing Lucifer’s Orb which means Myla can only move souls to Hell, and she doesn’t want to do that to innocent souls. So Myla decides not to move any souls at all. But they are running out of space, and Adair keeps getting in Myla’s way, and tries to take everything she holds dear away from her.
This was way too short for what I wanted, and the main reason why I only rated this 3.5. I just felt like it was a little too rushed, and a little too resolved. Adair annoyed the hell out of me. Really frustrating how she just wouldn’t go away. Myla, of course, was her usual bad-ass snarky self and I loved every minute of her. She is by far the best character in this book and she does keep you well entertained. Lucian is also a favourite. He is so genuine and kind and he stands by Myla all the time.
This book had some great action scenes, as well as politics, intrigue and mystery. I liked the story of this book, but as I stated before, I felt it was a little bit too rushed.
I would have really liked to see more of the other realms, but hopefully she might do more of that in the other books.
One problem with the book being so short is I missed some of the other characters who weren’t in it much, such as Walker and Cissy.
However, if you are looking for a strong and independent heroine then this is a series that I would definitely recommend.
MY RATING: ★★★☆☆ (3.5)
