Five Stars to SINS OF THE ANGELS: The Grigori Legacy
by Linda Poitevin
Spectacular Debut Urban Fantasy
When SINS OF THE ANGELS: The Grigori Legacy hit the book shelves in September 2011, it did so as resounding success with stellar reviews by the literary community, and with good reason.
Linda Poitevin’s debut urban fantasy novel will grab you and take you on a thrilling, page turning ride. The story opens with Homicide Detective Alexandra Jarvis caught up in the most challenging case of her career. The story begins right after the retirement of her long time partner. Her investigation seems to be one step behind a bloody, serial killer who destroys his victims while leaving no evidence behind. Her work is troubled by flashbacks which lead her to question her own sanity. It is a compelling and intense story, delivered using a clear methodical approach.
Detective Jarvis’s new partner Aramael, who she knows a Trent, appears to be a newbie detective. He is in fact an angelic Power—one who hunts Fallen Angels. This time, the fallen angel is his brother who just happens to be the serial killer. When Jarvis and Trent meet, sparks fly. As the story unfolds, the pair struggle to find common ground. We learn he has been sent to protect her and this task is made more difficult as he begins to have feelings for her. At stake: stopping a fallen-angel, hell bent on triggering the apocalypse.
The author’s descriptions pull the reader into the inner workings of a police crime unit, and take us behind the scenes with a host of angelic beings. Character development is exceptional. Suspense, action and dialog are brilliant. Read SINS OF THE ANGELS, by Linda Poitevin. You’ll be glad you did.
