Nineteen-year-old Myla Lewis has transformed into the Great Scala, the only being with the power to move human souls to Heaven or Hell. Although she no longer fights demons in the Arena, Myla still has tons of ass-kicking to do as she redefines the afterlife and rebuilds Purgatory's government. Unfortunately, her world falls apart faster than she can put it together. An enemy out of Myla's past is sapping her powers, making her weaker by the day. Even worse, her angel bound-love Lincoln has mysteriously disappeared. As her true enemy becomes clear, Myla discovers that all the after-realms are at risk. After losing so much power, does she still have the strength to save her world?

In Scala, Myla has to work against the clock on finding the Lucifer’s Orb and come up with a solution to deal with Adair’s devious scheme.

Adair was a pain in the ass in this book, like Myla said, bitch be cray-cray. She was quite irrational and obsessed with Lincoln. To be honest, I thought it was a bit over the top. I find it odd that everyone just accepted her weird behaviors. Not to mention Adair did lie about her being the Scala heir, She even admitted herself in Angelbound. But for some reason, because Adair denial that ever happened, everyone just pretended that never happened. What’s up with that?

I was surprised to find that it was possible to steal a Great Scala’s power, Adair managed to steal Myla’s power and could’ve become the new Great Scala if Myla didn’t find a way to stop her. Even if Adair was a special case, still though, does this mean that just about anyone can become the Great Scala if they are able to find a way to acquire and achieve all conditions to become the Great Scala?

I think Scala is a good follow up after Angelbound, this book does address the issues of Adair and her house, which I am very glad.

Happy reading! XO
