Myla Lewis loves kicking demon ass. Sadly, now that she’s the Great Scala as well as Queen of the demon hunting thrax, there’s no time to battle baddies. Sure, it’s great to rule alongside her main squeeze Lincoln―and their baby Maxon is adorbs―but what about some demon killing fun? Then Myla gets a chance to fight tons of evildoers, but it’s in the worst way imaginable. All the thrax disappear, except for Lincoln. Even sweet baby Maxon vanishes.With the demon hunters gone, the worldwide population of big bads goes berserk. Talk about a nightmare. Turns out, the evil archangel Lucifer left behind another magickal trinket that’s causing trouble. This time, Lucifer’s signet ring has changed the past, preventing the thrax from ever organizing in the first place. To bring back the thrax and their son, Myla and Lincoln must travel back in history―to the era called the Brutal Time―and try to convince the pre-thrax peoples to team up. Trouble is, these folks already have a powerful leader, the Red Scourge, and that creep doesn’t want his people hunting down demons. Nope. The Red Scourge has only one goal. Kill Myla and Lincoln, fast.

Brutal Time is the latest in this series and it involves Myla and Lincoln travelling back in time to meet King Arthur.

Now I have always liked the concept of a King Arthur and his Round Table, Camelot and the Knights and so thought it was really cool that here we see the reality of the person on which the concept – ideal – was based. A smelly, drunk, rather nasty man, who made sure he was ‘bigged’ up by his bard!

I thought it was a shame that more was not made of King Arthur and his Knights and that the whole time with Merlin and Nimue was downplayed and really formed quite a short piece in the book. For me this spoilt it, and made the book a 4 star rather than a 5 – which it could have been.

I enjoy this series and the author’s writing and we get some good and unusual themes and additions. I would have also liked to see more time spent with Myla and Lincoln and their interactions. These are the things that make the story for me.

Author bio

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too. 

Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.
