When homicide detective Alexandra Jarvis is assigned a new partner in Aramael, a Guardian Angel who doubles as a hit man, they have only one thing in common: a fallen angel hell-bent on triggering the apocalypse. Now they have no choice but to work together-relentlessly, fearlessly, intimately. Because only they can stop the rogue angel from ushering in the end of days.

Sins of the Angels has everything you want in a book about mortals and angels.  Linda Poitevin does a fantastic job of blending Heaven and Hell with the mortal realm.

Alex is a complex character.  She does everything she can to save people, but doesn’t take into account that she needs to let others help her also.  Alex doesn’t let anyone tell her she’s not capable of doing something. She also proves to be a lot braver than most of her colleagues.  Aramael drove me nuts! Sometimes I loved him, and others I wanted to strangle him.  I do however love Seth.  He’s quite the smart ass.

The action is nonstop.  There’s trouble lurking around every corner with the serial killer on the loose.  We know from the beginning who is behind the murders to an extent. It’s great seeing things unfold with the game of cat and mouse.  Makes things interesting.  I also love the multiple perspectives we get.  There’s always a different way each person sees things happening.

If you are a fan of angels and urban fantasy, definitely try this series out.  Sins of the Angels is one of the best angel books I’ve read.

About Linda Poitevin

Linda Poitevin was born and raised in B.C., Canada’s westernmost province. Growing up in an era when writing was “a nice hobby, dear, but what are you going to do for a living?”, Linda worked at a variety of secretarial jobs before applying to be a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). Due to an error in measurement, however, she was turned down when she didn’t meet the height requirement of that time. Undeterred, Linda became a civilian member in the force and was a dispatcher for two and a half years, during which time she met her husband, a police officer.
Following their transfer to Ottawa, Linda went on to become a real estate agent and then a human resources consultant before starting a family. She remained a stay-at-home mom, homeschooled her youngest daughter for nine years and, now that she has realized writing can be more than a nice hobby, she continues to live her dream of being a cop vicariously through her characters.
Linda currently lives near Ottawa with her husband, youngest of three daughters, one very large husky/shepherd/Great Dane-cross dog, a cat, two rabbits, and a bearded dragon lizard. When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found in her garden or walking her dog along the river or through the woods.
In addition to her books, Linda also does freelance writing and editing. Information about her services can be found at Linda is a member of Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, Quebec Writers’ Federation, Romance Writers of America, RWA Futuristic Fantasy Paranormal Chapter, and Ottawa Romance Writers’ Association.
