** spoiler alert ** Breenan's newest series-Original Sins deals with the premise that the seven deadly sins are fallen angels/demons that are set to be released on Earth.
Moira O'Donnell is a witch who was conceived and raised with the sole purpose of being a demon mediator (vessel) by her mother Fiona, a powerful witch and coven leader.
Moira refused her heritage and escaped with her life barely intact.
She ends up at the Order of St. Michaels under the tutelage of Father Phillip. St Michaels is one of many orders that are fighting the evil that Fiona is trying to unleash upon the Earth.
The order trains demon fighters and they take Moira in to their fold even though they do not trust her as she is a witch and considered the enemy.

Moira learns that Fiona is in Saint Lucie and heads there to try to stop her. Moira arrives to late; but learns that the summoning was interrupted.
As Moira searches the town for Fiona she is helped by Anthony and Skye. Anthony works for the order as a demonologist and despises Moira.
Anthony blames Moira for the death of his best friend, Phillip. Skye is the local Sheriff and Anthony's lover.
Though Skye is human, you are informed she has been through something similar with Anthony and keeps an open mind.
Moira and Anthony soon learn that Rafe is the one who disrupted the summoning.
As you head to the showdown between Fiona and the Order you are led through many twists and turns that leave you breathless and intrigued.

Having always been a HUGE fan of Allison Brennan's romantic suspense novels I was thrilled to learn she was divulging into the paranormal.
This book reads like a roller coaster ride. Your dipped and twirled through the air only to suddenly drop 100 feet and hang on for dear life.
The story reads beautifully with enough background information to keep you in the loop without you having to keep flipping back saying, "Huh?".
Though toted as a Paranormal romance, the romance plays second to the main plot and seemed more as an place marker for future books in this series.
The villains are deliciously evil and the heros are humanly flawed.
At the end you are left with enough open end questions that'll have me definitely buying the next in this series.
