Review: ORIGINAL SIN by Lisa Deroches

Original Sin
author: Lisa Desrochers
Pub: July 2011
genre: teen fiction/paranormal romance
Luc Cain was born and raised in Hell, but he isn’t feeling as demonic as usual lately—thanks to Frannie Cavanaugh and the unique power she never realized she had. But you can’t desert Hell without consequences, and suddenly Frannie and Luc find themselves targeted by the same demons who used to be Luc’s allies.
Left with few options, Frannie and Luc accept the protection of Heaven and one of its most powerful angels, Gabe. Unfortunately, Luc isn’t the only one affected by Frannie, and it isn’t long before Gabe realizes that being around her is too…tempting. Rather than risk losing his wings, he leaves Frannie and Luc under the protection of her recently-acquired guardian angel.
Which would be fine, but Gabe is barely out the door before an assortment of demons appears—and they’re not leaving without dragging Luc back to Hell with them. Hell won’t give up and Heaven won’t give in. Frannie’s guardian exercises all the power he has to keep them away, but the demons are willing to hurt anyone close to Frannie in order to get what they want. It will take everything she has and then some to stay out of Hell’s grasp.
And not everyone will get out of it alive.
ORIGINAL SIN is sinfully delicious! A sexy, adventure jam-packed with tons of fun and excitement starring some of my favorite YA characters!

The demons are back in spades and using every sneaky trick in the book to isolate Frannie and Luc, exploiting human emotions and bringing about the worst. They're so good at their jobs!

Frannie returns as her spunky, strong self. Luc - still sooo super sexy. Okay, I did have an issue about him missing some glaring clues about a particular someone, but he pulls through in the end. Or does he? There's that blasted cliff hanger ending...Argh, I hate those, making me wait!

And Gabe? Gabe is gone forever. Well, for most of the book. I missed him.

Instead we've got Frannie's new guardian angel, her brother Matt, who despises Luc and turns out to be rather unangelic in his attempts to protect Frannie from Luc. But Luc is AWESOME so I'm thinking, What is wrong with you, dude? 

With three points of view - Frannie, Luc and Matt - I enjoyed getting into everyone's head. Lisa Desrochers does a wonderful job seamlessly integrating the alternating POV's to keep it interesting without any confusion.

Be aware that ORIGINAL SIN punches up the sex factor. There isn't explicit detail but it's happening and demons use it as a way to tag human souls.

ORIGINAL SIN hurtles you through a crazy batch of surprises and plot twists that had me raising my eyebrows and flipping pages. I can't wait to see how Frannie is going to get through all of it. I mean, I really want to know!

This has been on my list, Just so busy this summer.

Amber said...

I just got finished with Personal Demons and can't wait to continue on with Frannie and Luc. I'm so glad that this story doesn't disappoint!

Jenny said...

Yay I'm so looking forward to this one! I had hoped we might get more of Gabe in this one since he was in the first one so little, but I'm glad for lots of Luc:) Fabulous review Alyssa, I can't wait to get my hands on this one!

Missie, The Unread Reader said...

I haven't read book one yet, but Luc is legendary. Yes, I've heard all about him.

So there will be one more book? I hate cliffhangers, too so maybe I should continue to collect the books, but wait until the next one is out.

Fun review, Alyssa! You always make me laugh.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

I actually need to get book 1. I actually have the ARC of this book. I'm trying to resist reading out of order, but you aren't making it easy! ;)

Jenny N. said...

I always love a good a paranormal book. I have Personal Demons already and still haven't had the time to read it yet. Hopefully I will soon.

I didn't even realise that book two is already out! Sounds SO SO good there.
