Sins of the Son by Linda Poitevin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the second in the series of The Grigori Legacy and it is a wonderful addition. Action packed from start to finish.
Alexandra is recovering both physically and mentally from being a pawn in the dealings of Heaven and Hell. She is required to see a psychiatrist and reluctantly agrees in order to get her non-desk job back. She picks and chooses what to tell the doctor and her boss knows she is not dealing well. Her sister, who is dealing with her own problems and those of her daughter who witnessed unspeakable things, is also pressuring Alex to answer questions she does not want to answer
In Alexandra’s life both immortals responsible for her past problems have disappeared. Aramael her supposed soul-mate and now banished Angel, is suffering at the hands of the Fallon Ones who want to punish him for killing Caim (a fellow Fallen) and Seth who is the Appointed One is now in a mental institution with no knowledge of who or what he is. Alexandra sees a bulletin asking for help with Seth’s identity and rushes to Vancouver to see what has happened. A visit to Seth’s room gets an introduction to Dr Riley (a psychiatrist) and Hugh Henderson a detective (sex crimes) with the Vancouver police. Both have been seeing some unusual things with assaulted women and are very suspicious of Alex’s story and her relationship with Seth.
Alex, Seth and Aramael are again used as pawns between Heaven (The One) and Hell (Lucifer) and things spiral out of control as they fight to keep the truth from the general public. The fact that they are fighting to stop the annihilation of the human race is met with obstacles in all directions.
The development of the story is fast and unpredictable, as Alex and the gang are thrown once again into a life and death struggle against good and evil. The characters are compelling and I enjoyed how they have developed into their roles in keeping the world intact. The conclusion is unexpected and we see a glance of what will come as the fight for Heaven and Hell continue – because you know Lucifer is not done yet.
