Format: Mass Market Paperback
It has been some time when I last read a book which sucked me in and held me in such death grip that I couldn't go to sleep and had to stay awake until 3am (on a weekday!) until I finished the story. And even after that I was pulsing with excitement and if I had Book #2 on hand I have no doubt I would have started reading it right away, not caring that I would have to get up in 4 short hours to go to work. That's how thrilling and amazing Linda Poitevin's urban fantasy debut novel is!

I was completely enthralled by Linda Poitevin's lyrical prose, her poetic descriptions were so evocative and vivid, the raw emotions squeezing my own heart:

The ache exploded, scattering its searing fragments throughout his body, spreading until it claimed every corner of his being as its own.

Her throat closed. Memories shifted in the long-ignored recesses of her mind, then began rising to the surface. She tried her damnedest to stop what she knew was coming, but her attempts shredded like tissue-paper boats adrift in a hurricane. Ruthless images stabbed at her, each leaving a new hole in her decades-old defenses.

The complexity of the worldbuilding and how every minor detail was thought out was fascinating. In the Grigori Legacy series Linda Poitevin builds on common religious views and puts her own twist on them. I really enjoyed those parts of the novel where I learned more about the angel hierarchy and how the system works (that for example humans can reject their own guardian angels).

And now time for me to talk about the main characters.

Alex, our emotionally scarred heroine is a weathered and kickass cop. She lost her parents at an early age and tried her best to escape the shadows and nightmares of her traumatic childhood which still haunt her.

Sins of the Angels and The Grigori Legacy have been on my want to read pile for a while, I just never added it to my Amazon basket for various reasons. Knowing Linda Poitevin through Twitter made me feel a little guilty about it, but it just wasn't the right time. When I did get my hands on a copy of Sins of the Angels I was really looking forward to starting it.

Sins of the Angels surprised me, because as I understood it, it focused on Angels so I went into it expecting a typical urban fantasy novel with a side of crime genre. This was not what I got. First and foremost Sins of the Angels is crime fiction - a detective novel, that just so happens to have angels in it. To be honest the crime genre is pretty hit and miss with me, I much prefer watching events unfold rather than reading them unfold. Having said that, I quite enjoy dipping into an Agatha Christie novel or reading Kathy Reichs' Temperance Brennan series. I also enjoy a good urban fantasy or paranormal with a dose of crime/detective fiction. And once I got used to the idea that Sins of the Angels was actually mainly a detective novel I fell into the story.

Linda Poitevin has obviously done a lot research for this novel. The crime scenes, and Detective Alexandra Jarvis seemed very realistic and believable. I actually enjoyed the contrast between the world of the police, and the world of the angels. Poitevin has also done a lot of research about the angel aspect of the novel, and what I really enjoyed was that she created her own characters and didn't just build on well-known angels/archangels like Gabriel or Michael.

Alex Jarvis was a really compelling character.

It's fair to say I read a heck of a lot of genre fiction, and because of that, and because I know paranormal and fantasy books aren't everyone's cup of tea, I can't often give blanket recommendations. Instead, it's usually with caveats like, "You might like this if you like books about angels", or "If you like to read about hot vampire sex, this might be your thing". This series, though, is so... classy, so well-written and intelligent, and the mystery/detective/serial killer hunt part of it so strong, that I would quite honestly say that even if you've never read a single paranormal novel in your life, you would enjoy this one. It reminded me very strongly of the In Death series by J.D Robb, only instead of futuristic SciFi elements, you have angels and demons.

Awesome!

Alexandra Jarvis is a homicide detective - a damn good one - who's haunted by a tragic past. When a series of brutal killings start bringing those once buried memories to the forefront of her mind again, it's really a test of her strength. When a new partner is assigned to her that is, on the one hand, the single most beautiful man she's ever seen, and on the other, the strangest, most disturbing man she's ever met, whose very nearness causes her to feel strange things, see things that can't possibly be there... We'll, it only adds more stress to an already trying time and, pretty soon, Alex begins to question her own sanity. Which in itself is a touchy subject for her and her family.

Not only does her new partner, Trent Jacob, bring out these unsettling, unexplainable feelings in Alex, but he also makes her uncomfortable at another level: he hates her. I mean like, hates her. Looks at her like something he just stepped in. Only not in an arrogant, pompous way.
