Editorial Reviews


I've just finished Progeny of Innocence. I don't have words to tell you how much I have enjoyed reading it.  The story was so entrancing.  This is definitely a five out of five star book for me. Ella Medler

This book had such a captivating story woven intricately between the pages that this reader could not put down the story until its completion.  I enjoyed the richness of the characters and all the facades of their personalities. The characters come alive and you can picture each and every one of them with the descriptions the author gives. S.G. Lee

This series never fails to awe me with it's creativity, originality & vividness. Roberts has a way with words - it left me breathless. I've read many kinds of books, many kinds of mythical creatures & nail biting scenes, but this book left me with such a deep impression - the writing was detailed & sophisticated. Natalie

I was scrolling down the pages faster than I could remember when it comes to an adrenaline junkie scene. The description was so graphical & such a rush! Progeny of Innocence exceeded my expectations, & the cliffhanger made me ache for the t3rd book. I can't wait to see what Patti has in store! Natasha Anne

From the Author

For me, talking to readers who love my stories and characters as much as I do is a dream come true. NOTHING is more exhilarating or inspiring. The author writes, yes, but I honestly believe it is the reader, that breathes life and soul into the characters in a book. Without the reader and their wonderful imaginations, stories and characters are words arranged neatly on a page waiting to be born, waiting to be loved. 
To the reader, my characters and I thank you.
Patti Roberts.

I absolutely adored the first book of the Paradox series, The Angels Are Here, and naturally had to pick up the second one as soon as soon as it was available in the Amazon UK store. Progeny of Innocence was an even more amazing, wicked read than The Angels Are Here.

The novel begins with a brief account of the background story and is narrated by Juliette. Juliette is an old soul reborn in the body of a young girl, Grace. In the first book, Grace was just a girl, now she's a 16-year-old teenager who's plagued by visions she doesn't understand even though she desperately tries to put the pieces of the puzzle together in order to find out who Juliette really was and what exactly happened to her world. Grace never really got over her father's death, so when she meets the new boy in town, Damon, he takes on a very important role in her life as her love interest and the one that makes her loss more bearable, along with Wade. But soon things start to get strange and it's obvious there's a killer on the loose, though it's doubtable that he's human. I could feel the spark between Grace and Damon, though I'm not yet sure whether he's good or bad.

I liked Grace in the first book, but in this one she was even more likeable and had me rooting for her when the fallen angels (called Grigorians) came closer to finding her. I thought she came across as honest and responsible, just the way someone with her importance in the fate of heaven and earth should be. I liked that she's become an adult now and that she understands the importance of what's going on around her.

One of my favorite characters was Keyla, who is a secondary character and the bearer of magic of the ancient race, Bakhna Rakhna.

Patti Roberts has done it again. Progeny of Innocence sucked me in from the first page and kept me up late into the night to finish. I love the authors ability to blend the old with the new. I could really see this series becoming a movie or tv show it's so engrossing. I am anxiously awaiting the next book.

I do not remember when I have been more spellbound by a fantasy book before.
I thought `The Angels Are Here' was good, but not quite fully cooked. With Progeny of Innocence Patti Roberts is just showing off. This book delivers on so many levels.
There is so much emotion in this story, so many human traits - the good (love, friendship, bravery and boldness) and the shameful (lust, egotism, self-indulgence, viciousness) all thrown together. But you can never misinterpret the true colour of a person. That weaker characterisation I saw in Book 1 here and there has gone completely. Patti Roberts has grown up. Her writing skills rival some of the very big names out there and I would be surprised if awareness of her talent doesn't sky-rocket within a few short months.
`The Angles Are Here' was a sweet little introduction to a fantasy world that might or might not be real. With `Progeny Of Innocence' we have no choice but to believe. It's not a fantasy anymore, it is a certainty. `It is a shame,' Patti says, `that real life events very rarely portray the grandiose victories personified in fiction'. Because we know, we feel that undercurrent to all of our lives. We've always suspected there is more to this inconsequential human existence and Patti Roberts makes it easy to imagine what this might be.
The WAFEs slowly awake and remember, and the guardians pull together. Sparks are flying and you find yourself gnawing on your nails with increased anxiety. The good and the evil dance around each other in ever-decreasing circles until you shiver with the imminence of the epic battle you can see will be unleashed in the very near future.
There is a YA tinge to most of the second half of the novel, but it is nicely done and the adult world weaves through it skilfully.

After reading Paradox - The Angels are Here, where we are introduced to the two worlds; I was keen to start on my copy of Paradox - Progeny of Innocence.

The novel starts in 1081AD with a more in depth understanding of the Grigorians, the lives of Abaddon, Cerberus and Theria, as well as new characters Temulun, a Bakari servant, and Keyla who has the gift of the Ancients. We are then propelled forward to 2009 and the story of Grace continues.

Grace is a bright 16 year old who after losing her father at age 11 continues to have extremely vivid dreams. Dreams about things that seem familiar, faces, places and the name - Juliette.

Who is Juliette and why is she haunting Grace's dreams, and will Grace be able to figure it all out before a war that has been raging for centuries engulfs them all.

In a quiet suburb of Darwin there are more beings afoot than just humans, and just who really are the Goths, and on who's side are they? We are introduced to a host of support characters and their connection to the ancient world but are they Gregorian or Bulgardian; you will need to read for yourself.

If you like a good suspense story, Progeny of Innocence will keep you wanting more. I can't wait for the next instalment to find out more about "The Fallen".

Stephen King is #1... Anne Rice is #4 - I have a very, very long way to go! Not that I expect to ever catch up with either of them.

I've just finished my new book "About Three Authors" - a contemporary romance/drama. I hope you check it out sometime. I always look forward to hearing readers thoughts, so your reviews are always very much appreciated.

So... Another big year ahead for me. 2015 will see the release of book 5 in the Witchwood novella series - Witches Bitches. And also another installment in the very popular Paradox series titled Elemental. And a project very close to my heart, a book titled Surviving Tracy. Surviving Tracy is a book based on the actual events of Cyclone Tracy, the most devastating cyclone in Australia's history. The book will contain actual stories and pictures from survivors, and is due out December 2015 (41 years after that horrific Christmas Eve in Darwin). Facebook page -

PATTI ROBERTS was born in Brisbane, Australia, but soon moved to Darwin in the Northern Territory with her parents and two sisters. Her son Luke was born in Darwin in 1980. Although Patti now lives in Cairns, Queensland, she still considers Darwin her hometown.

When Patti is not writing, she is busy pursuing her other passion, which is designing book covers for other authors. It is her wish to one day own and operate a writers retreat in FNQ Australia.
