“This YA paranormal fantasy series is cute, compulsively readable and above all fun.” – The Nocturnal Library Blog
Nineteen-year-old Myla Lewis is loving life–she’s now a wife, mother, and Queen of the Thrax. Oh yeah, and being a super-powerful demigoddess who moves souls into Heaven or Hell doesn’t suck, either. In fact, everything is pretty much awesome. Until something craptastic happens.
Her honorary older brother Walker enters the Dark Lands, home to the rule-loving ghouls, and vanishes without a trace.
Now it’s up to Myla to solve the mystery of Walker’s disappearance. Of course, Myla likes interacting with ghouls about as much as elective dental surgery. To make matters harder, everyone thinks that Walker is simply taking a well-deserved vacation. But Myla and her Angelbound love, Lincoln, both suspect that the ghoul Oligarchy took Walker in order to somehow release Lucifer, the ex-King of the Angels and an all around nut job who really needs to stay locked up.
Long story short, Myla and Lincoln have just two days to rescue their good friend and stop Lucifer from taking over the after-realms. Even for them, this may be a too-tall order, especially when Myla’s own father allows his past friendship with Lucifer to threaten Walker’s future.
“I loved jumping back into the world of Angelbound.” – Mean Who You Are Blog
Perfect for readers who love angels, devils, and demons but want a fresh take on their related fairy tales, myths, and legends. This series combines fierce females, paranormal romance and urban/contemporary fantasy. Enjoy!!
Christina Bauer knows how to tell stories about kick-ass women. In her best selling Angelbound series, the heroine is a part-demon girl who loves to fight in Purgatory’s Arena and falls in love with a part-angel prince. This young adult best seller has driven more than 500,000 ebook downloads and 9,000 reviews on Goodreads and retailers. The first three books in the series are now available as audiobooks on Audible and iTunes.
Bauer has also told the story of the Women’s March on Washington by leading PR efforts for the Massachusetts Chapter. Her pre-event press release—the only one sent out on a major wire service—resulted in more than 19,000 global impressions and redistribution by over 350 different media entities including the Associated Press.
Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.

An interview with Author Christina Bauer
My Books My World recently caught up with author Christina Bauer as she tours for her new book, THE DARK LANDS. Here’s the interview!
How and when did you get started as a writer?
My aunt wrote cozy mysteries for young adults, and I idolized her. That got me started at a young age!
What are your goals as an author?
Write full time (no day job) – I’m giving it a try right now!
When did you first consider yourself an author?
When my book ANGELBOUND sold 500K copies, I was like, wow, this is real!
Did you have a hard time sharing your work with the public?
Are you kidding? I love sharing my work with readers! Knowing I can help someone escape to a fantasy world for a while? It’s what keeps me going. In the beginning, I sweated reviews. But that was 15 books ago
What inspires you to write?
I ask questions about how I can make life tough for my characters. What would happen if someone like A met someone like B? That kind of thing.
If you could be one of your characters for a day, who would it be and why?
Myla Lewis, for sure! I would love to kick some demon ass in Purgatory’s Arena!
What are you working on at the moment?
ALIEN MINDS, a science fiction romance.
Can you give a little morsel of what you are working on?
Not sure if you remember the classic 1980’s music video for Ah Ha’s Take On Me?
Did you ever want it to be a book set in a dystopian future?
That’s ALIEN MINDS.
What can we expect in the near future?
More books, more snark, more tours!
If you could choose an author to be your mentor, who would it be?
JRR Tolkien, no question.
