Come take a Sneak Peek at The Dark Lands by Christina Bauer

Posted on by

As part of the launch tour for my new book, THE DARK LANDS, the amazing blog, Angel’s Guilty Pleasures, has given me a fun challenge to use the title of the book to describe it. So here goes!

D is for … Disappearing – as in the best ghoul, Walker

A is for … A Gothic revival setting

R is for … Rare lava angels attacking

K is for … Kicking ass (Myla and Lincoln!)

Please share a few Fun facts about this book: 

I did a survey to my top readers about what they wanted to see in this book, and the most popular responses were 1) we want Walker to kick ass and 2) let’s see baby Maxon with his grandparents. Challenge accepted! Those turned out to be some of the best parts of the book. (If you want to participate in top reader surveys, you can sign up for my personal journal newsletter here:

Using just 5 words, describe the book. 

Jane Eyre meets Living Dead

Was there a scene in this book that was harder to write than others? 

Oh, there’s a scene where we find out how a particular character has been suffering and it was super hard to write. I never like my characters to suffer, yet I am such a bitch about making their lives terrible!

Without revealing too much, what is your favorite scene in the book?

There a re a number of scenes where Myla’s father Xavier tries to babysit Maxon which were an absolute blast to write!!! Can’t wait for y’all to read them! 

Thanks for the opportunity to share about THE DARK LANDS! I hope to return soon on a future tour!


The Dark Lands
by Christina Bauer
(Angelbound Origins #5)
Published by: Monster House Books
Publication date: September 1st 2018
Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal, Young Adult

“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
