The Providence Series pulled me in from the start and I loved all three books. I was so excited when I found out she was writing this one about Eden. We fell in love with all of the characters in the first three books and this one was no different. I loved Eden and the way she didn't take crap from anyone. She stood up for herself but knew when to hold back. This family's love for one another is heartwarming and encouraging. We get introduced to Levi in Sins of the Innocent. He's supposed to be bad, Eden's enemy, but he's the complete opposite. I loved the way that Jamie added in her twists and turns, her surprises and holy sh*t moments. Eden is so strong and knows what she has to do. I had a death grip on my kindle and I may have even yelled at it a couple of times, thinking I could somehow change what was happening. It will pull you in and keep you in its grasp until the last page, and even after you're done reading it you'll still be thinking about it.
I was drawn into the fight between Heaven and Hell from the beginning of this series and this book just continued pulling me in. When I got to the end, I kept going back to the page before and the next page trying to find more. I didn't want it to be over, to end. Of course, I never do when it comes to Jamie's books. I hope this isn't the last book for this series, I love these characters too much and I can't wait to see where they go from here. (If there's another one) Thank you Jamie McGuire for giving us such truly magnificent stories, that stay with us long after we've read those last words, "The End."
Sins Of The Innocent takes place about 18 years after the end of the novel Eden. SOTI is told through Eden's POV. Having been born to a Merovingia and a half human/fallen angel; Eden has trained her entire life knowing someday she may need to save the human race. Eden has only one friend, Morgan; her best friend. Eden thinks that she will have a "normal" summer leading up to her first semester at Brown University. That is until Levi, a mysterious and dangerous guy introduces himself. Not able to trust Levi, and not able to get the whole truth from her parents, Eden seeks advice from an old powerful family friend. Given clues to what her true purpose is, Eden has to make a difficult choice. Continue not trusting the one person who she's been taught could destroy her, or trust him, and maybe find out what her truth is.
Wow, this novella by Jamie McGuire was just fantastic. I read the Providence series last spring and when I found out Jamie McGuire was writing this, I was ecstatic. Not only did I really enjoy meeting Eden and Levi, I loved seeing some of my favorite characters from the series years later. In true McGuire form, there were moments that made me laugh, swoon, and that last chapter really got me emotional. I'll leave you with one of my favorite lines: "You remind me why humanity isn’t a waste. My dad says that one is all it takes … and that’s you.”
I was so excited to read this book hoping it would answer the question of why this baby would disturb the balance. This last book lacked so much that I loved from earlier books. I loved revisiting the characters but I just wish there had been more. This book was so much shorter than the others and it felt very rushed. Just as I was starting to love the banter and budding relationship between Eden and Levi a wrench was thrown in and suddenly they were in love with each other. It felt rushed and disjointed. Also I noticed some plot holes and things that didn't add up especially relating to the shelling based on the previous book. In the prophecies Eden was supposed to disrupt the balance yet in this book she was meant to save the balance and atone for previous sins it seemed. The ending was abrupt and made absolutely no sense to me. I get that it's difficult in a fantasy story with prophecies to have it all make perfect sense but I just couldn't get on board with it at all. I had high hopes and because I love these characters I did enjoy reading it so I gave it three stars but I am left feeling more disappointed in it than I was with Eden.
One of my favorite lines: "It's not time for fear, it's time for courage." So true as to what this story was about.
I encourage you all to first read the Providence series THEN you must read Sins of the Innocent. An unexpected, refreshing ending in my opinion. WOW.
Bravo to this Author.
