BLOG TOUR [Guest Post + Giveaway!!] SINS OF THE LOST (Grigori Legacy #3) by Linda Poitevin

SINS OF THE LOST (Grigori Legacy #3)
by Linda Poitevin


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 Nephilimchild 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.

Things I Love to Hear My Readers Say

I’m pretty sure that all writers like to get feedback from their readers...especially the good kind of feedback. ;-) Let’s face it, writers put a lot of work into their “babies”, and it’s really, really nice to hear that people like the end result. Things such as “I couldn’t put it down,” “I stayed up reading way past my bedtime,” “characters seem so real,” “the world-building is amazing”...oh, how we love to hear those phrases!
But what makes an author truly squee with joy? In my case, it’s knowing that I’ve gone that little bit further, that extra layer deeper—that I’ve connected on a more visceral level with my readers. In other words, sadistic writer that I am, I love to hear that I’ve made a reader cry.
So when the reviews of Sins of the Lost started coming out and the story was getting feedback along the lines of this:
“There were times when I thought my heart couldn’t take any more” (Romancing the Darkside)
“there is one scene in the book that had me sobbing. We’re talking full-on ugly crying, sobbing, and wailing.” (Phantasmic Reads)
“Sins of the Lost destroyed me...Reviews require words and right now, I HAVE NONE.” (Janice, Rabid Reads...posted on Goodreads)
“Whoa... Just, whoa.” (Julie, Yummy Men & Kick-Ass Chicks...posted on Goodreads)
Yeah, words like that make me very, very happy indeed, because it is an amazing and humbling thing to know that my own words have resonated that deeply with readers. In fact, for me, it is the absolute ultimate compliment...
That, and maybe I really am a sadist at heart! ;-)

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, two cats, a rabbit, 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.

I enjoy the imagination that the authors have on heaven and hell... how they create the characters...and even change them up ... so not to be what was expected.

I really like the good against evil heaven and hell story line. It sounds like a page turner!
