add-to-goodreads-button3Summery: Eighteen year old Myla Lewis is a girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. She’s not your every day quasi-demon, half-demon and half-human, girl. For the past five years, Myla has lived for the days she gets to fight in Purgatory’s arena. When souls want a trial by combat for their right to enter heaven or hell, they go up against her, and she hasn’t lost a battle yet.

But as she starts her senior year at Purgatory High, the arena fights aren’t enough to keep her spirits up anymore. When the demons start to act weird, even for demons, and the King of the Demons, Armageddon, shows up at Myla’s school, she knows that things are changing and it’s not looking good for the quasi-demons. Myla starts to question everything, and doesn’t like the answers she finds. What happened seventeen years ago that turned the quasi-demons into slave labor? Why was her mom always so sad? And why won’t anyone tell her who her father is? Things heat up when Myla meets Lincoln, the High Prince of the Thrax, a super sexy half-human and half-angel demon hunter. But what’s a quasi-demon girl to do when she falls for a demon hunter? It’s a good thing that Myla’s not afraid of breaking a few rules. With a love worth fighting for, Myla’s going to shake up Purgatory.


In the Bargaining of the story, Myla had my attention. She is sassy, and a bad ass wrapped in a bomb Shell. She lives to fight in the arena and has never lost a fight. Even tho i liked Myla’s character. I did find the beginning to drag on threw the story. I really wanted the story to get to the main plot of the story. Once the story gets up to speed, i really started to like the story a lot more. Trust me the story does get better.

Myla is a half-demon living in Purgatory, she fights Souls. If the soul win he/she is sent to hevan…and if they lose well they are sent to hell. Myla always wins the fight so you can guess where the souls end up. She also liked to kick demon butt. She is miss know it all when it comes to Demons and Fighting Skills.

I did like how the Love interest in the book wasn’t like love-in-first-sight. Myla first, dislikes him and then they slowly like each other. They pull a funny prank in the book that did have me on a giggle-fit.

Lincoln at first comes off like he dislikes the quasi’s but always kinda had his eye on Myla. He is also a Prince of a bunch of Demon Hunters that usually live on earth.

Of course the story does have it’s action but it wasn’t really that much detailed. The action in the book is usually cut short and it would have me really wanting more of the action. I would also loved more Zeke and Cezzy. I really felt like their story wasn’t told enough. I am hoping in the next book i will get more of them.

I did like the story. Specially towards the end ( when everything comes together and starts actually being a really good story ), but i didn’t really love the story as much as i would have liked. The book does have it’s little flaws but besides that it’s a good book. I can see some of my followers to really enjoy the story.
