ABOUT: 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?

My Review: Scala was a good read – pretty mellow but with some tense moments.

Myla continues to have to prove her legitimacy and capability as the Great Scala but there are forces annoyingly and deliberately conspiring against her. I wasn’t sure how Myla would pool through because the kind of odds she was against seem undefeatable at times. Once again, Myla shows how resourceful she is in high-stakes situations. It’s one of the reasons I like her as the main character.

Myla’s relationship with Lincoln is still going steady but that next step brings its own internal conflict. They’re a good team as fighters and a cute couple. But I feel there’s more that could be done or hasn’t been done to develop their relationship.

I’m enjoying this series and plan to read all the rest of the books that’ve been published. What Myla will face in the next book, Acca, I think will finally up the enjoyment of this series.
