A Review of Maxon by Christine Bauer and other stuff.
Maxon (Angelbound #4) by Christina Bauer 5*
BLURB: 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.
Book contains adult language and sexuality. Can be read as a standalone.
My Review: Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Publisher Through NetGalley You know that book that you mean to open and just read one chapter before doing something else then find you can't put it down for any reason? No? Well read this one and you will know what I am talking about. I haven't read all of the Angelbound books but luckily for me this one can stand alone and was riveting to boot. The main Characters were well written and had very interesting personalities. The action was strong and believable even though it dealt with fantastical creatures and situations. I cannot say much without spoilering so suffice to say I highly recommend this book if you enjoy fantasy action and a believable romance.
Other than the above book I have read a few others since last week and listened to one or two good ones (look on my goodreads read list for more info about that). I have also done two more parts on both my Sophie's Universe blankets. Pictures can be found here.
