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…
 Review:

Linda Poitevin did it again in the second installment of The Grigori Legacy, Sins of the Son. Picking up right where Sins of the Angels leaves readers, Linda Poitevin doesn’t hold back one bit and readers are pushed right onto the thrill ride of their lives! Sins of the Angels really set my expectations high, and Sins of the Son just brought that bar even higher. I can honestly say that The Grigori Legacy is one of my top favorite urban fantasy series hands down. Better yet, it is written by a Canadian author, Linda Poitevin definitely gets some brownie points for that!
Now I won’t be getting into the actual summary of the plot as there would be too many spoilers for the first installment as well as for Sins of the Son. What I can say is that the storyline has evolved, moving away from mysteries and crime scenes, and has entered into a new exciting world!
My favorite element of Sins of the Son was that the secondary characters within the first installment played key roles and became aligned with the main characters. Among those characters are the One and Lucifer himself. Linda Poitevin reveals an unsuspecting twist that involves the relationship between these two characters. There were also a few new characters that entered the series and took center stage such as the Archangel Michael aka Mika’el. I particularly enjoyed Linda’s retelling of Michael’s story and what the true reasons for his departure from Heaven were.
Sins of the Son becomes much steamier than the first installment when the forbidden love element extends into a full-fledged love triangle between Alexandra, Aramael, and Seth. As one can imagine, Alexandra must select one of these handsome archangels; however, she must keep in mind that her decision can lead to Armageddon as Seth holds the key to both the salvation and destruction of the entire human race.
Just as Linda Poitevin did with the first installment, Sins of the Sonkeeps readers sitting at the edge of their seat and pulling their hair right until the very end. Just after the plot hits its climax, readers get slapped with another blasted cliff-hanger ending! Linda Poitevin is a phenomenal writer and I really cannot wait to read the next installment of The Grigori Legacy.
I recommend Sins of the Son to anyone who enjoys Urban Fantasy reads. For those of you who have not yet picked up the first two installments of The Grigori Legacy, put everything down and read them NOW!!!
