Original Sin by Lisa Desrochers
Release Date: July 5th, 2011
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.
I was left amazed by Personal Demons so I was really looking forward to read Original Sin. And I really want to make one point across: I was NOT disappointed! Ms. Desrochers is a great author and I love her writing. The way she hooks the reader from the very first page all the way through the story!
If you've read my Personal Demons review you probably found out that I really liked Frannie as a character! She was a kick-ass kind of girl and I find that really cool. She trusted her boyfriend, but then we had the love triangle (which I do not mind, since Gabe is just adorable!) which made her question herself. One character I did not like was Matt. Clearly, he didn't particularly like Luc, but less hatred would have been awesome!
The ending of Original Sin was different. I thought it would be totally different, but I wouldn't say that I didn't like it, no! It was awesome just like the rest of the story! But something was missing, I just don't know what it was.
I'm really looking forward to read the third book in the series, Last Rite, which is published in May next year. Like I said, the Personal Demon series is awesome and I would totally recommend it!
