Original Sin

The Seven Deadly Sins, Book 1

Driven by a thirst for power, eternal youth and blinding beauty, evil sorceress Fiona is ready to use her black magic to set free the Seven Deadly Sins on earth.  Despite her diligence, there are plenty of people poised to stop Fiona before she succeeds and include sexy ex-seminarian Rafe Cooper, a feisty female sheriff who’s not sure what to believe about the mysterious events, a cynical demonologist that happens to love the sheriff and an innocent young teen confused about her role. But as the crucial player in this blockbuster tale, Moira O’Donnell reluctantly takes on her evil mother, Fiona, hoping to stop her before it’s too late.

A fan of Allison Brennan forever, this book surpasses everything she’s ever written because she dares to pair a paranormal romance with God, the Book of Genesis, and the reality of good versus evil.  Even better, her skills as a writer are evident as she deals with all facets of this riveting tale equally.

As the title ORIGINAL SIN may suggest, this story is built on the very first transgression and introduces a host of characters that will leave you gasping for breath as you try to keep up with all the deadly twists and turns.  Can no one be trusted?  Fiona will stop at nothing to kill anyone who stands in her way, and that includes her own daughter, Moira. Reluctant, Moira fights to protect humanity, which means she has to destroy her mother.  But don’t forget that Brennan loves her romance and adds plenty of steamy scenes to whet your appetite.  Without giving the entire story away, The Seven Deadly Sins are released, but you’ll have to read this entire story to find out how it’s handled, and what happens next.

But don’t take my word for it! I dare you to run, not walk to get this thought-provoking and well-written book that is sure to have you talking at the water cooler for days.
