Original Sin

Haunted by chilling memories of demonic possession and murder, Moira O’Donnell has spent seven years hunting down her mother, Fiona, whose command of black magic has granted her unprecedented control of the underworld. Now Moira’s global search has led her to a small California town that’s about to become hell on earth.

Tormented by his own terrifying past and driven by powers he can’t explain, ex-seminarian Rafe Cooper joins Moira’s dangerous quest. But Fiona is one devilish step ahead. Hungry for greater power, eternal youth, and stunning beauty, the sorceress is unleashing upon the mortal world the living incarnations of the Seven Deadly Sins.

Together with a demonologist, a tough female sheriff, and a pair of star-crossed teenagers, Moira and Rafe are humanity’s last chance to snatch salvation from the howling jaws of damnation

Praise for Original Sin

“Seductive, suspenseful and exquisitely written . . . Original Sin is the perfect read for any fan of the supernatural/thriller genre, or any reader in search of a fantastic escape.”

— San Francisco Examiner

“Brennan shows a deft command of all things both normal and otherworldly in crafting one of the best tales of its kind since Dean Koontz and Stephen King were still writing about monsters. There’s no shortage of those here and the result is a new genre classic.”

— Providence Sunday Journal

“Darkly powerful [and] shiver inducing!”

— RT Book Reviews

“An exciting supernatural adventure.”

— Mindful Musings

“Top-notch character development . . . equally top-notch plot at work . . . Allison Brennan outdid herself. ORIGINAL SIN delivers all the supernatural chills and thrills in an edge-of-your-seat story that you need to read late at night for full effect.”

— Leontine Book Reviews

“An action packed thriller, filled with demons and evil witches that will have your spine shivering . . . A nice introductory [paranormal romance] if you are a fan of thrillers. Fans of horror, authors like Koontz and King should take a look.”

— Romance Reviews Today

“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.”

— Book Binge

“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.”
