Blog Tour: Linda Poitevin interview - Sins of the Son giveaway

Today Linda Poitevin is over for an interview and there is also a contest where you can win her book  Sins of the Son :)

Welcome to Mur-y-Castell!

1. I will start with the same old question, who is Linda Poitevin? :)
Mother, wife, friend, gardener, owner of too many pets; lover of walks by the river, good coffee, fine wine, fresh food, books that take me away from the everyday…I think that pretty much sums it up. 

2. Could you tell me about your new book, Sins of the son?
Sins of the Son is the second book in The Grigori Legacy, a dark urban fantasy series. The story picks up where the first book, Sins of the Angels, left off, following Alex as she goes up against Heaven itself in an attempt to save Seth, the one being who might be able to stop the Apocalypse…if she can help him to remember who he is before he inadvertently causes humanity’s annihilation. 

3. What was your inspiration behind the Grigori legacy series?
That age-old writer’s question, what if? In this case, it was triggered by the words of a song by Sarah McLachlan, Angel; specifically, the lyrics “You’re in the arms of the angel, may you find some comfort here” made me wonder what if you didn’t find comfort in the arms of an angel, but something else entirely? That question led me to envision a scene that actually never even made it into the final draft of the first book, which led to the beginnings of a story, which led to the unexpected appearance of Seth’s character, which led to the idea for a series, and so on…kind of like a creative dominoes. J

4. Could you tell me about the Grigori?
In angel mythology, the Grigori were the angels assigned by God to observe humanity. Unfortunately, they did rather more than that, sharing forbidden knowledge with us and mating with human women. This resulted in them being cast—or falling—from heaven. In The Grigori Legacy, I stay fairly true to this aspect, but add a few of my own touches, such as Lucifer being the one who urged them on.

5. You were so evil in book 1 ;), poor Alexandra and Aramael. Will romance and love win in this book?
Hm…that would depend on what you consider winning, I think. I will tell you that I’ve never considered love and romance to be the same thing, though…does that help? 

6. I’d love to hear who you would think could play the roles of Alexandra, Aramael and Seth in a movie…
I’ve always pictured Anna Torv (from the Fringe television series) as Alexandra, and I think Henry Cavill would make a great Aramael. I’m still undecided on Seth, though…what do you think? Do readers have any suggestions?

7. How many books will there be in this series?
There are a total of four books planned for the series. I’m working on the third right now, Sins of the Righteous, but I don’t have a pub date as yet. The fourth is tentatively titled Sins of the Forsaken.

I loved the first book and have been so eager to find out what happens next. I enjoyed the interview and learning that this is a four part series.

At the moment, Kt, no...but then again, Sins of the Angels was supposed to be a single title book, so I've learned to 'never say never.' LOL

oh Blodeuedd has me wanting these books! I have them both on the wishlist. Oh love the interview... but I don't think anyone could have too many pets (says the person who complains daily about pet hair! LOL).

Yvonne said...

Sounds great! I'd love to be entered.


Barbara E. said...

I've been meaning to start this series, and now I have two books to get caught up on. I love the covers too, I think they're a refreshing change to some of those out that have a sexy pose on the cover that don't have anything to do with the book.

I love reading about angels. This book sounds very good. Please enter me in contest.

Oooo Henry Cavill! He could pretty much play any fictional character in a TV series or movie and I'd be a pretty happy camper. He's quite enjoyable! This is a series I have on my list, I can't wait to start it!

Blodeuedd said...

Thanks everyone for stopping by :D

toni said...

Yay. Glad to hear that there are at least 4 books total. Every time that I watched Fringe, I kept thinking that Anna Torv reminds me so much of Alex!
