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.

About the Author

In her spare time Linda Poitevin gardens (organically), cans, freezes the family’s winter fruit and vegetable supply, knits (basically), crochets (better), and starts way more projects than she ever finishes. Fortunately, that doesn’t hold true for her books. She loves spending time with her family, having coffee with friends, walking by the river, and watching thunderstorms…in about that order.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"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.

Sins of the Son (The Grigori Legacy)

Sins of the Sons is the second book in the Grigori Legacy series and oh my, it was another wild ride into the wonderful world of angels and demons, of heaven and hell and all things in between!

Alex was slowly trying to rebuild her life after the devastation of losing her home, her soul-mate and nearly her job. Tied to a desk and forced to participate in counseling where she's unable to share the truth, she is determined to put the past behind her.

Even here, at the start of Book 2, her pain, uncertainty and fear of humanity's survival comes through strongly, totally immersing the reader into a plethora of emotions that once again leave you gasping.

I was expecting the story to continue around Alex and Aramael as they struggle to avoid Armageddon, but Ms Poitevin takes you in a wholly unexpected direction. Seth Benjamin, the son of The One and Lucifer, is prophesied to be the one who would make the final choice for mankind - saving or destroying. Free will and love, both forbidden in heaven, results in the "rebirth" going horribly wrong and Seth is sent to earth, not as a child who would grow up and experience both the good and bad of the world, but as a fully-grown adult with no memories of who he is/was.

And so the action kicks off....

Ms Poitevin delves deeper into the mythology of Angels and the Fallen, the heart-wrenching snap of breaking soul bonds, human fragility and endless hope, how love is both the cause of the current devastation and the platform for future peace. Would Armageddon even be a possibility if The One hadn't given up on love...

I know when I'm whimpering by the end of Chapter 1, it's going to be a good book. I felt like my heart had been ripped out by the end of Sins of the Angels. This one did it so many more times.

I love Aramael. And I love Seth. Talk about having my heart torn in so many different directions. This book was so good. I finished reading it in about 5.5 hours. From the time I picked it up, I only put it down to get my kids ready for bed.

I can't wait to pick up the third book, even though I'm sure it's going to twist up my emotions just as much(I seem to be a glutton for that kind of punishment)

I received this book free from Goodread's Firstreads program.

Sins of the Son continues the story of Nephalim Alexandra Jarvis and the war between Heaven and Hell. Poitevin again uses multiple third-person perspective to tell this story. As in the first book, the language is clear and well written. I like the world Poitevin has created and her characters are sympathetic.

Poitevin's romantic leanings do come out in this book, though less so than in the first. The story pivots around a love triangle, which will aggravate some readers. The triangle seems slightly forced, especially considering the events of this book take place only a month after those of the prequel; but not so much that suspension of disbelief is impossible. Once again, the author stays mostly on the UF side of things; there are no overblown sex scenes and the exposition on romantic angst is less than in the first book.

While the plot of this story was well wrapped up by the end of the book, the epilogue definitely said, "to be continued." I'm looking forward to the next installment to see if humanity, and religion, survives the machinations of Jarvis, the angles, the Fallen, and the One.
