 Book Description for Sins of the Son       

                                                   A detective with a secret…

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 aware of Seth’s true nature, only she can save him.

                                               An exiled angel turned assassin…

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.

                                         A world with little chance of redemption…

As Alex’s need to protect Seth sets her on a fiery course with the determined Aramael, the coming conflict between them may push the world over the edge—and into the very chaos they’re trying to prevent.


the review…

At the heart of the story is an agreement between The One and Lucifer. Seth – The Appointed will transition to earth. Based on his decision, humankind will be saved if he makes a choice in line with the powers of Heaven. But, if he sides with Lucifer, Armageddon will be triggered and mortals will be wiped out.

There is a problem with Seth’s transition. He has entered the mortal realm as an adult with his powers intact. The problem is, he has no memory of who he is, or what he is to do. Alexandra Jarvis worked with Seth about a month earlier and she has the key to his understanding.

Alexandra finds Seth in a mental institution. Psychiatrist Elizabeth Riley refers to Seth as John Doe. Dr. Riley is totally skeptical of anything and everything supernatural. Meanwhile, the plot thickens as near irrefutable evidence builds suggesting that Lucifer and his fallen ones are spawning a new race of Nephilim.

The story will keep you guessing on how it will end. You will travel from Toronto to Vancouver. Character development is a highpoint. You will get a good grasp of who the players are and what their intent is. Tension will build to a stunning climax as opposing forces take turns trying to outwit the opponent. Ever present figures remain Seth Benjamin, Alexandra Jarvis and Aramael, Alexandra’s soulmate.

If you are prone to predicting the outcome of the novel you are reading, good luck with this one.

Book Review– SINS OF THE ANGELS: The Grigori Legacy

Five Stars to SINS OF THE ANGELS: The Grigori Legacy
by Linda Poitevin

Spectacular Debut Urban Fantasy

A detective with a secret lineage. 
An undercover Hunter with a bullet-proof soul. 
And a world made to pay for the sins of an angel… 

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.
