***Anniversary Edition With Epilogue***
Nineteen-year-old Myla Lewis has transformed into Great Scala, the only being with the power to move souls out of Purgatory and into Heaven or Hell. Trouble is, a magical object called Lucifer’s Orb is limiting Myla’s abilities. If she tries to move a soul, the Orb’s forcing her to send that spirit straight to Hell.
So, what’s a girl to do? Send innocents to the fiery down-under?
No way. Myla’s gone on a supernatural strike.
No souls go anywhere until the Orb’s history. It’s the right thing to do, but Purgatory’s Soul Storage buildings are turning into time bombs. No spirits are moving out, while millions keep coming in. Myla’s determined to find the Orb and send the innocent to Heaven, but she’s running out of time. Soon, the containment fields will burst, releasing a mob of homicidal ghosts.
With Soul Storage ready to explode, Myla’s got enough on her plate without her old enemy, Lady Adair, causing problems. Adair is launching an ingenious campaign to take away everything that Myla holds dear, including Myla’s Angelbound love, Prince Lincoln.
Between their clever ideas and toe-curling kisses, Myla and Lincoln are fighting back. But will they beat the clock or lose everything to Adair’s devious schemes?

Scala is the second book in the Angelbound Origins series. I did not read the first book and still greatly enjoyed this book. This book not only explains a lot of the events in the first book in great detail to catch you up, but it explained it in a way that made me want to read the first book. For example, it was described that the main character Myla defeated a demon named Armageddon to free her father. That sounds badass and awesome.
This book follows Myla’s troubles in becoming the Great Scala. The Great Scala is the one who determines what souls in purgatory go to heaven or hell. There is a problem and Myla would only be able to send souls to hell. She has to find out what is causing this, fix it, fight for her life, and her right to be the Great Scala.
From start to finish I was entertained. I love the magical atmosphere and characters. Even without the first book I still was attached and loved all the characters. That’s a testament to how great Bauer’s writing is.
I recommend this book, but I recommend you do what I am going to do, and that is start at the beginning.
