I absolutely adored the first book of the Paradox series, The Angels Are Here, and naturally had to pick up the second one as soon as soon as it was available in the Amazon UK store. Progeny of Innocence was an even more amazing, wicked read than The Angels Are Here.

The novel begins with a brief account of the background story and is narrated by Juliette. Juliette is an old soul reborn in the body of a young girl, Grace. In the first book, Grace was just a girl, now she’s a 16-year-old teenager

Patti Roberts weaves a wonderful tale of magick and love in her Paradox series. I was pulled in by an 11 year old Grace in the first book, The Angels are Here, who was shattered by the loss her father. Now she is a teen who must find a place in the human world to better understand the spirit world and how to deal with her visions of a young woman who comes from her own past life. Through Patti, you get to travel into the supernatural as fallen angels hunt for Grace, and she begins her journey in ...more

The Paradox Series continues in Progeny of Innocence. The second book in the young adult series by Patti Roberts takes off where the first book left off.

The ancient world is in the middle of an all out war. The fallen angels, the Grigorians, are fighting their angel brethren, the Burgardians, and things are only getting worse. Chaos is still rampant under Grigorian Lord Cerberus’, house; however he is last to notice as his wife, Pandora, and his brother Abaddon scheme against him.

The Grigorians
I am absolutely over the moon excited to be sharing my review for this new book in Patti's series Paradox The Angels Are Here. Paradox: Progeny of Innocence is probably the best book to start off your New Year with I kid you not. If you read my review for the first book you will know how much I loved it, but, I love the second book even more and I know you will too.

As the book opens we get a much more detailed and in depth feel for the evil Grigorians, the characters she has created are like no

Last year I reviewed the first book “ "Paradox - Angels are Here"” by Patti Roberts, and I was lucky enough to be asked to review the second book her trilogy – Progeny of Innocence. I enjoyed the first book and was not prepared for what the author had in store for her readers next. This book was FANTASTIC! I was spell bound from the very first page. She packed one heck of a literary punch with this book and this second book far excided my expectations.

An original and beautifully written story, Progeny of Innocence took the term 'rebirth' and 'souls' to a whole new level!

It was a bit hard for me to get into the story because until this day, I was still a bit confused by the concept of both the New World and the Ancient World. However, the series never failed to awe me with it's creativity, originality and vividness. Patti Roberts has a way with words and it left me breathless. I've read many kinds of books, encountered many kinds of mythical c

I was really excited when I got asked if I’d like a review copy of the second book in the series. I enjoyed The Angels are Here but I had loads and loads of questions after finishing the book, which I assumed would be answered further in the story – and let’s just say that in Progeny of Innocence, a lot of my questions were answered.

Firstly, I should say that the attention to detail in this book is every bit as good as in the first – there is still good artwork within the book, and it really do

I had read “Paradox-The Angels are Here" and looked forward to reading the second in the series and Progeny of Innocence did not disappoint. This book had such a captivating story woven intricately between the pages that this reader could not put down the story until its completion. I enjoyed the richness of the characters and all the facades of their personalities. The characters come alive and you can picture each and every one of them with the descriptions the author gives.All the questions I ...more

I'd first like to state that I received an ecopy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I love how beautifully Ms. Roberts weaves an ancient world with modern times together so seamlessly.
However this was not my typical "Ok kids you play Xbox while I sit here on the couch, drown you out and enjoy a good book". It was more of an "Ok kids don't kill each other over the video games I'm going to find a quiet place away from your noise to enjoy a good book". Progeny of Innocen

Patti Roberts is an author that has taken every reader by storm with her magical world of the ancients and the enchanting story of Grace. Patti Roberts alongside author J.K. Rowling, Neil Gaiman, and David Clement Davies, has definitely become my idol and someone I look up too. Patti Roberts is the only author that I have gotten to know personally and have seen grow into a wonderful story teller.

I am honored to have read the first two books, and I can’t believe it took me a while to finish Prog

Patti Roberts has created a story of two worlds that are woven without the current world (Earth) knowing, at least most people aren't aware of.
Not only has she created characters with depth but also with detail so crucial to every measure of this book, (Trust me I'm desperately trying to review without being a spoiler)
The story centers around a girl (on Earth) named Grace and the people in her life who have sent to protect (and harm) her. She is having dreams that she isn't sure is real or memor

I finally finished - I have to admit, I put off finishing this book because I so enjoyed it - I didn't want it to end. I love how the characters came full circle at the end!! As Patti promised, many questions that I had from the first book were answered in this one. The characters never ceased to enthrall me, the descriptions never ceased to take me to the scene, and most importantly, I was ALWAYS transported to another time, another place. I really can't put into words how important that is! As ...more

Did I say something earlier about what most people could only HOPE to dream of???? Well, I won't be back from what I call "Patti's World" any time soon. Book two was all I could've hoped for and more. I want to be one of Patti's Angels! I don't have one single regret from doing nothing but reading Paradox; Progeny of Innocence for the past two days! Awesome writing Patti Roberts! I will be bothering you endlessly for the release date of book three...

Okay here was my mistake with this book.... I accidentally read it before I read the first one. I got mixed up and thought this was the first book. But besides that this book was pretty awesome and I suggest you read, but read the first one first because it will save you from asking dumb questions and then slapping your self. But if you do get you in the same knack I was you'll be fine, but I gonna go read first one now.

This book was so hard to put down, it was SO good. It was even better than the first. I found that it explained some things that were left unanswered in the first, and I loved how it went more into detail in the past. I'm SO excited to read her next one!

Concluí a leitura deste livro a 7 de setembro de 2012. À semelhança do que aconteceu com o primeiro volume da série, dou-lhe três estrelas.
No geral, achei este livro bem melhor do que o primeiro. Embora continuem a existir partes que acho que não contribuem em nada para o avanço da narrativa, estas não são frequentes quanto no primeiro volume.
Também há mais ação do que no primeiro livro, o que foi bom, pois achei o primeiro demasiado parado.

Paradoxically in book 2, only days have passed in Altair, but on earth, Grace is now a girl of sixteen. She is still non the wiser about her visions, but she takes them seriously and jots her dreams down. We find out that things at Graces school are rather precarious as the Grigorians have taken the cover of a group of goths at her school. Despite needing to stay hidden, their bloodlust often gets the better of them.
Grace also discovers boys and is attracted to Damon, one of the Goths. One day

This series must be read in order. The first book is Paradox - The Angels Are Here. This is the second book.

These books are written by an Australian so there was a bit of a learning curve to reading them. That said this book was even better than the first one :) It picks up some years after the first book ends when Grace is a teenager. I was really happy with that as I found it easier to relate to her at the older age. If I had had to read about her whole childhood I would probably have gotten b

This is a series to watch (and read)! I enjoyed the first book which set the scene, introduced the characters and gave us an introduction to the two worlds that Grace sees. My review of Paradox: The Angels Are Here can be found here.

This book is even better and the story really takes off. We are given an understanding of some of the central characters who featured in the first instalment. There is a real presence of evil at work, with the blackest of characters you could find. There some new cha
It is like reading two books, the innocent teenagers' world and the harsh description of the evil's prevalence. If you get used to the writing style and the frequent changes in the use of personal pronouns (from 1st to 3rd person and the opposite), the jumping between present and past and the analytical review of every person's life till the end of the book, which was really an interesting approach, then you get along fine. The teenagers' company, many times, reminded me the "Vampire Diaries" yo ...more

I absolutely adored this book, I loved book one and this one just got better with its unique plot and vivid details, the author continues combining the ancient world with the new, beautifully detailed full of action, adventure and intrigue to keep the reader in suspense as to what will happen next.

There is no resolution in this book, just a massive introduction of characters. It was odd and poorly done. Jumps around to back stories in odd transitions and there were several grammar mishaps: missing punctuation, weird sentences, and missing words.
Won't recommend to anyone.

For my clean readers:
Sex, violence, vampiric demons, a ton of language, and teenage drinking.

Perhaps I am just old, don't know
the basics of the story were very good and from a technical viewpoint well put together.
My main problem is the continual back filling of the back story. It tends to take you away from the main story way too often.
The characters are well written for the most part however some fall a little flat.
I can see the entire story as being more intense then what has been written. I do understand that it is written for the young adult and that does provide for it's own lim
