ARC Review: Sins of the Son -Linda Poitevin

When homicide detective Alexandra Jarvis sees a photo of Seth Benjamin on a police bulletin, she knows that Heaven's plan to halt Armageddon has gone terribly wrong. As the only mortal who knows of Seth's true nature, only she can save him. Aramael was a hunter of Fallen Angels until a traitor forced him into earthly exile. Now, with no powers and only a faint memory of Alex, his mortal soulmate, he will stop at nothing to redeem himself-even if it means destroying Seth in the name of the Creator...

Series: Grigory Legacy #2, Series: urban fantasy, Pages: 352, To be published: March 27, Publisher: ACE, Source: Blogtour/netgalley/ACE

My thoughts:
Those who read book 1 know how it ended, and for those who did not, well you really need to read book 1 since a lot happened.

The romance does not seem to go anywhere, with Aramael not coming back to her or….But Aramael in this one is changed, no powers and no connection to Alex. He also means to kill Seth. So not cool. So he is losing points in my book.

Alex then, she is trying to be strong after what happened. I do like her and her I am taking no shit attitude.  Which brings us to Seth who is on earth and she goes to find him. And I do liked Seth in book  1, a lot, so it was great to see him again and, well I can’t say, but he has issues….and I really like him ;)

Just like book this book just gets better and better and the last part of this book has me on the edge of my seat. I came to a point where I could no longer put it down and I read and read. The ending is a rollercoaster of emotions. The end, well it is not a I am on a cliff and falling cliffie. It is more an all is well…for now *in comes music of doom* and I go omg. Nooo! Still not a hanging on a cliff cliffie, cos all ends well.

There is action, trying to save Seth, trying to survive angelic assassinations and the war between Heaven and Hell is coming closer. And who do like? Demons are evil, that is a given, but then angels have this you got free will attitude and they do not give a damn. I do not like the angels either. And how the humans are gonna come through this alive I do not know.

Conclusion:
Those last 100 pages, so good! Poitevin is truly evil though. And now I can’t wait for book 3. I do recommend this series:

Nice

  5. Awww, sorry to hear the romance didn't really seem to progress, but the series must be good if you're still planning to continue reading it. I like the sound of Alex and her tough girl charm. :)

  8. Sounds like there's all sorts of good stuff happening in this book! I love a book that keeps me on the edge of my sheet, and I'm guessing we get a cliffhanger-type ending since you called Linda evil ;-)

  10. I just got this book in the mail but I think the publisher goofed and sent me the wrong one because I haven't read the first book yet. I'm excited though! I like the positive feedback these books have been getting.

    1. They are good, and the end of the books are always the best. Well in my opinion. The last 100 pages must be read in one sitting ;)
