Phenomenal!

Oh. Em. Gee. THIS BOOK.

The Grigori Legacy has been a rollercoaster ride for me from the moment I started it. At first (before I knew better), I thought it would follow the usual formula. Yeah, there would be twists and turns unique to the series, but it couldn't be that different than other urban fantasy books I'd read, right?

WRONG.

I know what you're thinking. You're reading the book's blurb and saying to yourself, this girl i

Since Alex started living with Seth things haven’t been easy. She is called back into work on a homicide where a baby was torn out of the mother’s belly. She knows this was the work of the Nephilim army that Lucifer is building. Her staff sergeant also informs her that she has her old partner back, who happens to be Archangel Aramael (no one knows this but her) and her soul mate. Having chosen Seth over him, she isn’t happy about it, and Seth isn’t happy about it either. Events keep add

Poitevin’s Grigori Legacy series has really hit its stride with this latest installment, Sins of the Lost. The storm that’s been brewing between Heaven and Hell has finally reached its breaking point and, with a cast of characters that includes Archangels, The One and the Devil himself; this book can accurately be summed up by one word and that word is EPIC. Sins of the Lost is a compelling read that’s difficult to put down and even harder to forget with its apocalypse in

You know, I was giving this series a chance. I really was. And it's not terrible. But it does make me feel disappointed. After two books of being a Nephilim, the main character has exerted only one power that really isn't exciting, is being more of a bitch than usual, and making mistakes that cost her way too much. Everyone in this series has been so damn stubborn that it's no wonder everything goes so damn wrong. The ending was of course dramatic and I find it hard to believe it ended with the ...more

What to say... I've always enjoyed Urban Fantasy for its larger and longer story arc that really gives an author room to build their plot and their characters. I might have to rethink that after this one- just kidding. This is what I call the 'trust me' book of the series. It is the third story of a 'must read in order' series and it will be the one that will shake loose any lightweight fans or have those in for the long haul really girding up their loins when its through.

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: Armageddon is ramping up, and both Heaven and Hell are wanting Seth to fight on their side. This is not going to end well…

Opening Sentence: “You want me to what?”

The Review:

This series is proof of my belief that when starting a series, you need to read at least the first two books before deciding if you’re going to continue or not. I gave the first book in this series 3 stars, but it was a low 3 if that makes sense. Then I read the second book,

What a roller coaster ride! And at the end I was cursing her name (again!).

Alex is happy with Seth..or is she? She still deals with the trauma from book 2, and of course then there is the whole Son of Lucifer and God thing going on. Seth did after all give up everything to be with her. Also hiding in the shadows is her former soul mate (well he still is but he must stay away). Lots of possible romantic drama in play and Poitevin shakes the foundations of what I want yet again.

Then we have the TH

This is a great third book, a rollercoaster of emotions, love and betrayal. Well written I was hooked from book one and love the strong characters and storyline. Fast paced, suspense and twists and turns makes this a gripping series!

Warning: themes of rape
Warning: Cliffhanger (status: 😭😭😭 noooooooo. You can't do that!)

Seth has given up his powers to be with Alex because he loves her so much. Only that release of power has turned out to be a problem. Lucifer is continuing to build his army of Nephilim babies. Alex now once again has to work with the soulmate she turned away from as she is asked to betray the man she loves. 

Holy One alive. I'm torn in two right now. I am hurting in ways I really did

This has nothing to do with the rating I've given the book, but allow me to whine for just a moment: this is the first book in Poitevin's wonderful series not to be released in print, and that makes me sad. Not that ebook formats are any less real than print, just that I have the first two in print and would love to see the whole series in paperback. Also, I can't say I'm a huge fan of the new cover art as compared to the covers that put Alex front and center. Just my two cents.

Now, as for the s

What a rollercoaster ride!

It had been a while since I read the last book in this series, so I had to remind myself of events and relationships as I read this one. Because of that, I probably did not feel as much of the emotional impact of some of the interactions and events in this story.

The war between heaven and hell is nearing. Lucifer has set things into motion for his army of Nephilim. The fallout from Seth giving up his immortality is affecting both heaven and earth. Alex remains torn betw

There are all sorts of urban fantasy to choose from. I love the snarky heroine who is kicks the bad guy’s butt, gets the hot hero (eventually) all within a unique and multi-faceted world. But I also love the drama of dark urban fantasy. Poitevin’s Grigori Legacy series is that kind of story. In a fight between heaven and hell there can be no real winners, only degrees of losing. Sometimes you can’t have what you desire and must make hard sacrifices for little reward, and sometimes lo

Just like the rest of the series so far... loved it!
The character development is amazing and there is always a tension in the background. You just know that something bad is about to happen and that you will be left stunned. But you still cannot stop the characters make choices true to their personalities and bring us all closer to the impending devastation.

Once again, I loved it.

I shouldn't have real life let me pause this book for three months. This was just worth the wait though.

1. Sort of cliffhanger ending
2. Not happy (me)

Okay. Must ponder rating after collecting myself and wiping away tears.

The world is falling apart and the only way homicide detective Alexandra Jarvis can save it is to convince the man she loves to give her up. Seth Benjamin abdicated his role as Heaven’s son and the now the world is suffering cataclysmic results but Seth sees no point in relinquishing Alex only to delay the inevitable. Just when Alex thinks she making headway with Seth, an agent of Hell gets involved offering Seth another option.

Now this is the type of book I was hoping to get from this series!
It was so much more well written and thought out compared to the last book and it had you enthralled.
I knew I couldn't stand Seth and this just showed why.
We finally saw more kick ass Alex and it was so great. Her strength and determination and character growth has gotten so well even if the other books were a little sloppy.
The whole second book probably could've been avoided and just had things explained in this one when it c

At the beginning of this book, Seth the son of the One and Lucifer and Alex a homicide detective he loves are finally together. However, some things are and some things are just not meant to be.

What does it feel like to be caught between Heaven and Hell? How about being the one person who is both catalyst and pivot in that particular ongoing conflict? Alex is in precisely that position and on top of that, she is also caught between two very different, very possessive, very obsessed alpha males. She just cannot seem to get a break. The author spins an amazingly detailed, intricate and intimate story that puts the reader on Alex's shoulder as she tries to survive these conflicts, macro a ...more

I really tried to like this series. The majority of the story was great but I never bought the relationship between Alex and Seth or between Alex and Aramael. The whole soulmate thing seemed more like forced slavery than love with maybe a little lust thrown in. Alex fought with both Seth and Aramael constantly and never showed any affection for them. It's like the author forgot to include the part where the characters who are falling in love actually get to know one another. They had nothing in ...more

This is the 3rd book in the series and while every one of the books so far has been so emotional and compelling, this one is really heart-wrenching! I love the story, the characters, the action, the everything!!! Can hardly wait for the next book.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
