From the author of Sins of the Angels and Sins of the Son comes the newest novel in the “electric, thrilling and extremely intelligent” (Ex Libris) Grigori Legacy series.
Heaven and Hell are on the brink of war as Lucifer builds his Nephilim army and waits for his new agenda to become a reality — that of having a Nephilim child of his own bloodline to lead his forces to cataclysmic victory.
With rumors of the pending war rampant on Earth, Alex fights to save humanity from its own panic – leaving little time for her fledgling relationship with Seth, the man with heavenly origins who has captured her heart. But when Nephilim children begin to disappear, along with Alex’s own vulnerable niece, the inevitable war between Heaven and Hell becomes as personal as sin.
Heaven has its own plans to fight the coming apocalypse, but first it needs Seth back. Asked to betray the man she loves, Alex must turn for help to the soulmate she thought she’d given up — the Archangel Aramael, who may be her last chance to save her family and humanity from the ashes of Lucifer’s Armageddon
I am completely in love with Linda Poitevin’s story. Sins of the Lost grabs you and doesn’t let go!
Alex can’t seem to catch a break. Awful circumstances keep coming up. She’s just trying to figure out her new relationship with Seth. She thought she was done with Heaven’s plans, but they keep pulling her back in. How much more can Alex handle before she loses her grip on reality. I adore Amarael. He’s given up so much, and continues to do so without complaining about it, too much. I had a hard time with Seth in this book. I loved him in Sins of the Angels, but he’s gone through so much and it affects him as a person. His only care is Alex, nothing else.
Sins of the Lost has so many ups and downs. I love Alex’s wit and determination to save all of humanity. She never loses sight of what’s right. There are also bittersweet moments. And you’ll need the tissues! I cried at a few parts. I just can’t even explain. People in Heaven and Hell are trying to save themselves. Things unfold in the most impossible ways.

Guest Post with Linda Poitevin: Sins of the Lost Playlist
The Sins of the Lost Playlist
Thank you so much for taking part in my Sins of the Lost blog tour, Katrina! I’m delighted to be here, and I loved your suggestion of posting about the music I listen to when I write, because music actually plays an enormous role in my writing. It inspires me, drives me, helps me power through the dreaded writer’s block…and I suspect it even influences the direction my stories take at times.
In fact, when I began writing down the titles of all the songs on my playlist for Sins of the Lost, it was a little freaky, because I realized that many of them, if woven together in the right order, could almost tell the story all on their own. But if I was to do that, it would be spoilerish…and we wouldn’t want that now, would we? 😉
Instead, I’m going to leave you with that little teaser and simply list them in alphabetical order…
Because I’m evil that way. 🙂

Breaking the Habit (Linkin Park)

And now I have a question for you: do you listen to music when you’re reading, or do you find it distracting?
Yes, I listen to music when I’m reading. I’m very much a mood reader, and certain songs or albums makes a reading experience so much more than it would be without it. And I think I know where each of these songs go in the book! All are great choices!!!
