Book Spotlight: Original Sin by Lisa Desrochers
Luc Cain was born and raised in Hell, but he isn’t feeling as demonic as usual lately—thanks to Frannie Cavanaugh and the unique power she never realized she had. But you can’t desert Hell without consequences, and suddenly Frannie and Luc find themselves targeted by the same demons who used to be Luc’s allies.
Left with few options, Frannie and Luc accept the protection of Heaven and one of its most powerful angels, Gabe. Unfortunately, Luc isn’t the only one affected by Frannie, and it isn’t long before Gabe realizes that being around her is too…tempting. Rather than risk losing his wings, he leaves Frannie and Luc under the protection of her recently-acquired guardian angel.
Which would be fine, but Gabe is barely out the door before an assortment of demons appears—and they’re not leaving without dragging Luc back to Hell with them. Hell won’t give up and Heaven won’t give in. Frannie’s guardian exercises all the power he has to keep them away, but the demons are willing to hurt anyone close to Frannie in order to get what they want. It will take everything she has and then some to stay out of Hell’s grasp.
And not everyone will get out of it alive.
For all of you who have read Personal Demons, this book is better! 🙂 Yes, now you can’t wait till July 5th can you? By the way, its only 4 days away!!!! Woo hoo! 🙂
Let me back up a little. Original Sin picks up right where PD left off. Luc is now mortal. Frannie is in love, and Gabe is trying to keep everyone sane. We met Matt at the end of PD and in OS he is a lot more of a presence since he is now Frannie’s guardian angel. If you’ve been following Lisa’s teasers you know that Matt’s point of view is used to tell the story quite a few times.
Overall, I enjoyed OS. I enjoyed the conflict and the romance. I enjoyed the characters and their interactions. The one things I didn’t enjoy as much was the absence of Gabe for most of the book. The cover for OS is beautiful and it seemed as if Gabe would be a bit more of a presence. However, it was the opposite. Yes, that’s a bit spoilery for you but you come across that information if you read the summary on the back of the book so I don’t feel too bad about giving that out. Lisa once again brings us into the world of good versus evil in a way that is entertaining and exhilarating. I love how she always has a way of using commons sense knowledge and still makes the story completely supernatural. Its fun to be in the heads of characters, seeing the happenings from their point of view. Lisa never fails to amaze me, and I might be pulling my hair out little by little considering I now have to wait – A long time – for book three.
Needless to say, I want book three now! I know book two is not even here yet, but I’m already itching to know how it all unravels! Lisa leaves us with quite a cliffhanger in OS! I hope you go out and get your hands on OS July 5th! Let me know what you think! 🙂
