"Original Sin is the start to what promises to be an amazing paranormal series . . . I'm pretty sure that Moira will be on my list of top five heroines of 2010. She's that good...So far, this is the best book I've read in 2010."

"A terrific mixture of suspense, mystery and a lot of action with a hint of romance . . . I found myself repeatedly surprised by the turns in the plot. I have definitely been pulled into the world of the Seven Deadly Sins and I cannot wait until Carnal Sin releases later this year."
