From the Back Cover

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 who knows of Seth's true nature, she's also the only one who 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 collision course with the determined Aramael, the conflict between them may push the world over the edge--and into the very chaos they're trying to prevent.

"Sins of the Son" by Linda Poitevin is part of `The Grigori Legacy' series, picking up where "Sins of the Angels" left off. Detective Alexandra Jarvis is struggling to recover from the aftermath of her association with Aramael and her exposure to the struggles between `The One' and Lucifer as they are played out using the angels and the fallen ones. A radical gamble results in Seth, son of `The One' and Lucifer, arriving on Earth as a mortal adult with aphasia yet holding the fate of mankind in his hands. The Archangel Mika'el is recalled from his centuries-long exile to resume leadership and see that the struggle goes in favor of the One but the nefarious plans to produce additional Nephilim as well as the machinations of the One herself make him face a horrendous decision. Detective Hugh Henderson works with psychiatrist Dr. Elizabeth Riley in Vancouver to try to find out what's behind the mysterious pregnancies that are accompanied by unbelievable tales. He is reluctant to believe the facts that he is being presented with but gradually realizes that his background makes him better able to connect the clues being presented than most other people. He is reluctant to accept the information that Alexandra gradually unveils but has no choice once he meets those she is working with. Once again, Alexandra stands at a crossroads that may result in Armageddon and her heart and strength will be tested as she faces an impossible choice.

A dramatic and wrenching addition to the series that gives a different twist on the struggle between good and evil. An intriguing concept that gives a view of fallen angels and the hierarchy of heaven as they are torn between their wants and their needs to defend mankind. There are horrendous and earth-shattering events which occur in this volume of the series which continue to make the question of love and soulmates a terrible burden upon a fragile mortal soul.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Despite wanting to stay far away from all of the Angel business, Alex finds herself dragged back into the thick of things when she finds out that the plan to stop Armageddon is in shambles. Seth was that plan, until he lost all memory, greatly endangering humanity. She rushes to save him so he can save the rest of the world, but there is more going on than meets the eye. Her soulmate Aramael, who she thought dead, is on his own mission, only his ends in taking Seth's life, and triggering the War between Angels and Fallen.

Sins of the Son dove a lot further into the mythology behind the Angels than the previous installment, which really was great for me because that was my favorite aspect of the series. So much was revealed, and it was great to get the insight into how things came to be the way they are between the Fallen and the Angels. I also really enjoyed seeing Lucifer's perspective. Previously I had thought him to only be a force for evil and that his betrayal of The One was absolute, but I was wrong. Trust me, even after seeing his perspective, I still think he is quite bad considering his hatred of humanity. However, I don't think his betrayal of The One was absolute, and it seems like he would give almost anything to be back with her. It just somehow makes him seem a little less nasty.

While reading Sins of the Son, a certain part really stuck out to me. When The One (Creator) is asked why she continues to love Lucifer despite everything he has done and chooses him over the rest, The One responds: "It is not in my nature - not in my capacity - to favor any one life over another, every living thing in this universe is a part of me, created from me. Who I am, what I am, demands I love them all.

Review 6******

This is the second book in The Grigori Legacy by Linda Poitevin. Second books are usually judged extremely harshly, because they have to live up to the first book, but I think the author doesn't have to worry on this count. This book is just as exciting and pulse-pounding as Sins of the Angels.

The tension between the Realms of Heaven and The Fallen are reaching breaking point. Seth takes matters into his own hands and decides to give up his place in Heaven, but his transition goes badly wrong, and he ends up with amnesia. Can Alex get to him before Aramael does?
Alex Jarvis is a fantastic character, who's inner strength astounds even herself. She's stubborn, has a protective streak a mile long and is loved by not one but two angels. She is feisty and doesn't pull her verbal punches, which can be extremely dangerous, especially with the Archangels, but then she wouldn't be the kick-ass heroine I've come to admire.
Seth, being the son of The One and Lucifer, is The Appointed, an angel of immense power. He has the power to decide the fate of the mortals on earth. I liked his character in the first book, but love him in this one! He has to make some difficult decisions and I don't envy him one bit!
Aramael, being exiled on earth, is set a task which brings him into conflict with Alex, his soulmate. I fell in love with him in the first book, and he still tugs on my heart strings, but Seth is giving him a run for his money!

Linda Poitevin has created a world that is very similar, but also extremely different to the one we live in today. I loved the fast pace of the story; meeting the new characters, as well as a few from the previous book. The ending gave me chills, and I am now looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
