I love The Grigori Legacy series and I love to share my love for books and this blog hop just helped me to do that, win! Win!
The best part is that Linda Poitevin had the brilliant idea of turning the roles, here she’s the one asking the questions and I’m the one answering. *cracks knuckles*

Good luck to you all.
Without further ado here is the
Alex. Why? Because that woman has gone to Hell and back and she’s still kicking ass.
2) If you had to describe the Grigori Legacy series in three words, what would those words be?
Dark, original, and unpredictably-good (let’s pretend I didn’t cheat).
3) Readers and reviewers have called this a “different kind of angel story.” Do you agree or disagree? Why?
I’m one of those reviewers. There is nothing like the Grigory Legacy series in the market. The mythology Linda Poitevin created behind her Angels is brilliantly creative and completely original. Her angels are not sweet or holy; they are swoon worthy kickass warriors.
The best part about this series is that Linda Poitevin is not afraid of taking risks and she’s a master at manipulating our feelings with her words. *Bows to Mrs. Poitevin*
4) Who do you think the ideal reader is for this series?
Anyone who wants to read excellent books, especially if they like smartly writing dark urban fantasy books and are not afraid of being put me through the wringer and having their hearts ripped out of their chests every other page… in a very enjoyable way, Linda Poitevin is that talented.
5) The series has a lot of big "whoa/OMG!"-type moments. Which scene or character - or which book overall - has surprised you the most so far? (No spoilers, please!)
Really? How I’m supposed to say which one without spoilers, that’s impossible. I’m going to do something different, I’m going to quote a paragraph from my review for Sins of the Son:
“The end of the book was not a cliffhanger, but one that will leave you with noooo, omg, omg, omg, wow, omg, omg, wow, no she didn’t, yes she did, omg, omg I didn’t see that one coming (lost count of omgs). It was so much of and OMG-End that I had to contact Mrs. Poitevin immediately after finishing the book and in short words I told her she was an evil author to which she proudly replied that yes, she was.”Let me be clear, all of the books in the series have whoa/OMG moments. Actually, I think the whole third book was a whoa/OMG book… What a freaking ride that book was… Crazy!! In an excellent way of course. ;)
6) While the Grigori series is more UF than PNR, there is still a strong romantic element running through the books. Do you think Alex will get her HEA? If you could wave a magic romantic wand, who would you like to see her fly off into the sunset with? (Again, no spoilers!)
No spoilers? Yes, that easier said than done.
This is the only series that has made me change my mind countless times about who to support to be Alex HEA. Right now I don’t even want to make any assumptions because I know Linda Poitevin is going to come and crush my dreams as she has done many times before. I told you, She’s evil! (I’m afraid of her, but please don’t tell her).
7) What is one thing you would like to see happen in the last book?
I’m expecting a fight of epic proportions, I want Alex to save Nina, get some peace of mind and the HEA she so much deserves. I want the new Lord of Hell to maybe find redemption, and last but not least, I want to be Mika’el’ HEA, is that much to ask?
Marcela and Mika’el

First comes love,
Then comes marriage
Then they fly to Heaven in a carriage.

SINS OF THE ANGELS
A detective with a secret lineage. An undercover Hunter with a bullet-proof soul. And a world made to pay for the sins of an angel...
Homicide detective Alexandra Jarvis answers to no one. Especially not to the new partner assigned to her in the middle of a gruesome serial killer case-a partner who is obstructive, irritatingly magnetic, and arrogant as hell. Aramael is a Power--a hunter of the Fallen Angels. A millennium ago, he sentenced his own brother to eternal exile for crimes against humanity. Now his brother is back and wreaking murderous havoc in the mortal realm. To find him, Aramael must play second to a human police officer who wants nothing to do with him and whose very bloodline threatens both his mission and his soul.
Now, faced with a fallen angel hell-bent on triggering the apocalypse, Alex and Aramael have no choice but to join forces, because only together can they stop the end of days.
When homicide detective Alexandra Jarvis sees a photo of Seth Benjamin on a police bulletin, she knows that Heaven's plan to halt Armageddon has gone terribly wrong. As the only mortal who knows of Seth's true nature, only she can save him. Aramael was a hunter of Fallen Angels until a traitor forced him into earthly exile. Now, with no powers and only a faint memory of Alex, his mortal soulmate, he will stop at nothing to redeem himself-even if it means destroying Seth in the name of the Creator...
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 Nephilim child 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.
