Sins of the Son

The Grigori Legacy, #2

“Sins of the Son” by LInda Poitevin is part of ‘The Grigori Legacy’ series, picking up where “Sins of the Angels” left off. Detective Alexandra Jarvis is struggling to recover from the aftermath of her association with Aramael and her exposure to the struggles between ‘The One’ and Lucifer as they are played out using the angels and the fallen ones. A radical gamble results in Seth, son of ‘The One’ and Lucifer, arriving on Earth as a mortal adult with aphasia yet holding the fate of mankind in his hands. The Archangel Mika’el is recalled from his centuries-long exile to resume leadership and see that the struggle goes in favor of the One but the nefarious plans to produce additional Nephilim as well as the machinations of the One herself make him face a horrendous decision. Detective Hugh Henderson works with psychiatrist Dr. Elizabeth Riley in Vancouver to try to find out what’s behind the mysterious pregnancies that are accompanied by unbelievable tales. He is reluctant to believe the facts that he is being presented with but gradually realizes that his background makes him better able to connect the clues being presented than most other people. He is reluctant to accept the information that Alexandra gradually unveils but has no choice once he meets those she is working with. Once again, Alexandra stands at a crossroads that may result in Armageddon and her heart and strength will be tested as she faces an impossible choice.

A dramatic and wrenching addition to the series that gives a different twist on the struggle between good and evil. An intriguing concept that gives a view of fallen angels and the hierarchy of heaven as they are torn between their wants and their needs to defend mankind. There are horrendous and earth-shattering events which occur in this volume of the series which continue to make the question of love and soulmates a terrible burden upon a fragile mortal soul.
