Book Description

Original Sin is book two in the Alexandra Jones series, the sequel to First Bitten.

Alex has run. Leaving everything she knows and loves … Nathan, behind. She’s a fugitive; hiding from the Original Vârcolacs who want to claim her for themselves.

Hiding in Italy, she has changed her identity and her appearance; working in a coffee shop in the quiet town of Sassano.

Then Zeff steps into her life. He’s solid, sturdy, but more so he’s human – he’s someone real, tangible, a friend throwing her a lifeline in a world of loneliness.

Believing she's safe from attack, nothing prepares Alex for what's lurking in the woods, on her doorstep, intoxicating her into a web of control and deceit.

Danger is closer than her shadow ... the hunt is on again, forcing Alex into the hardest dilemma yet.

Praise for First Bitten, the first book in the Alexandra Jones series:

‘The ending - god what an ending! It's so emotional I think I spiraled for a while, unwilling to let it go. As a reader, hooked from the first chapter, I'm prepared to send death threats to get a sequel to this novel. There MUST be more, I need more!’ Poppet, author of the Pravus series and The Gods and Thurs series.

‘So much happens that you just want to know, “What happens next”, “Will everything work out okay” , “WHY!” and to top it off the ending has a cliffhanger that has you saying, “That’s it?!?!” It definitely leaves you wanting to read the next book.’ Marie, Paranormal Reads.

‘I'm ultra-excited to have found such a brilliant new series! First Bitten is Book 1 in The Alexandra Jones Series and I devoured it in a day. I don't want to give anything away, so all I'll say is it has all the elements to make up the perfect urban fantasy: a very real and sympathetic main character, a terrifying supernatural situation and the hottest love interest you could imagine!’ Shalini Boland, author of the Marchwood series and Outside.

5.0 out of 5 stars All kinds of crazy about this book!!! 24 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok so after 6 and half hours of straight reading this book, I'm finished. But I do not want it to be finished.

Original Sin is the second book in Alexandra Jones series and being hooked from First Bitten I could not wait to get my hands on it. So without giving too much away, Alex is now on the run from the Originals constantly running from country to country, when she bumps into Zeff, she is immeadiately drawn to him. She still loves Nathan but its been 6 months he can't possibly still care for her when she just left him!

This book has got so many twists and turns it is better than being on the best rollercoaster you can think of and being able to go in a gazillion times without having to queue. I was upset, confused, angry and cried a whole lot whilst reading this book, (so please be warned have a box of tissues). I went through every emotion with Alex and thats why you are so amazing Samantha Towle. I've said it before when I read a fantastic book it is like I am watching a film in slow motion and I always get that when reading one of yours and it was like I wanted to be snowed in at the cinemas. When I saw the end I literally went "NOOOOOOOOO, don't end it like that, please!!!"

Now you know how much I love Nathan, so when I found out you were adding a new main man to the picture, I was instantly dis-pleased. BOOOOOO!!! but I have to say he grew on me a whole lot, I think I needed my jaw picking up off the floor at one point. HOWEVER, I LOVE NATHAN, and this new side to him. OH MY GOOD GOD!! His still the same Nathan but his changed, showing his vunerability but you never took away who he really was and what truly matters to him.

Please everyone put your hands together and applaude this woman, because she has done it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love, love, loved this book. Can't wait for BK3! 29 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book from as soon as it became available as after reading BK1 I couldn't wait to get my hands on BK2 to read more about Alex and Nathan.
First of all I think the cover really fits the book well, because there's the image of Alex, and the wolf in the background.
I have to admit I couldn't resist reading this one as soon as I could as I had been somewhat impatiently waiting for it.
In this book Alex has run away from the gorgeous shifter Nathan and she is using a false name, Sarah and has been moving around a lot to avoid being found by the Originals. I think part of her does wish that Nathan would find her though, as she can't get him out of her mind. Then a mysterious man appears on the scene and Alex sort of knows that there is something the man is hiding but can't quite put her finger on what. The man tells Alex his name is Zeff. I don't want to go into the plot and give too much away but will say that Zeff, who when you find out who he really is seems the most unlikely source to help Alex.
Alex is faced with a choice, thinking it's now safe because of a conversation had with Zeff for her to return to Nathan. So is it a totally happy no questions asked reunion? Come on you must have read book now, we are talking about Alex and Nathan here, stubbornness, hurt feelings and jumping to the wrong conclusions all rear their ugly heads. So do they sort it out? Read the book!
I love the way the book chapters are split, from Alex's point of view and her journey and then from Nathan's rather frustrated point of view of his never ending search for Alex. It adds to the book that we are in on the fact that Nathan is still searching for Alex even though Alex thinks he may have now given up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will take your breath away 11 Jun. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Book 2 begins 6 months after Alex has left Nathan for his own safety and is on the run in Europe trying to keep ahead of the many factions who have their own agenda for her.

She has learned to hunt for herself and one night she is attacked by a vampire and saved by Zeff. Through various misunderstandings (it is Alex after all, lol) Zeff teaches Alex was to fight and protect herself.

Meanwhile Nathan has been searching for Alex and is having a major meltdown over her but when she turns up at his home he seems less than pleased to see her.

By the end we are set up nicely for some epic battles in the following books where everyone will have to face their demons for the sake of everyone's survival.

It was good to see that Alex has evolved in the time she has been away from Nathan and learned to fend for herself quite literally. I was also happy to see her make the transition into wolf form in this book too.

The pace did not let up for a minute in this book and I am impatiently waiting for book 3

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't get enough! 20 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I was given and e-copy by the author in exchange for my honest review.

This is the sequel to "First Bitten" The author is high on my list of favorites. She has a way for making you fall for her characters and feel all their emotions.

Alex has set out on her journey of a new life on her own. She had to make a choice that is killing her on the inside, but it is better then watching her loved ones die. She has changed her identity and her looks, hoping it will help her hide while on the run from danger and her past. She constantly has to keep her guard up, one mistake and it could be her last. Choices have to be made, but there are consequences to them all. Who can she trust? Will she have the strength to survive and do what is right? She is on a long road with two separate paths, but which one will she take?

I laughed, cried, and felt panic right along with the characters. It had me on the edge of my seat. A must read that will have you wanting more. The release of the next book can't come fast enough.

Very disappointing ending this book has. And it's not because it simply finished, but because of the way the author chose it to finish. What a waste of character Zeff is. Read more
