The small Californian town of Santa Louisa is still reeling from the
lethal rampage of the demon Envy, one of the Seven Deadly Sins released
from Hell by black magic. But when more bodies bearing satanic marks
surface in Los Angeles, former witch Moira O'Donnell knows the terror
is beginning again.
For a trendy LA nightclub has become a hot spot of lustful demonic activity. And as a supernatural war erupts, Moira and Rafe, her tortured and indomitable ally, are caught in the crossfire.
Cornered by mortal and unearthly enemies, they must conquer their greatest fears to survive.
But their growing passion for each other gives the demon Lust exactly what it needs to defeat them both.
About the Author
Allison Brennan is a former consultant in the California State legislature, who now has fourteen bestselling novels under her belt. She lives in Northern California with her husband Dan and their five children. Crime fiction, mysteries and romantic suspense have always been Allison's favourites, so it's no surprise that her romantic thrillers, such as Killing Fear, Playing Dead and Tempting Evil, have a dark suspense edge. But crime fiction is not Allison's only interest.
Growing up, she immersed herself in the more supernatural worlds of Stephen King, Dean Koontz and John Saul, unable to put the terrifying, page-turning books aside. Before she even sold her first book, she had an idea of a series based on the Seven Deadly Sins, but that idea was put on hold for seven years as her thriller writing took off. Now, in 2010, Allison has launched the paranormal series, beginning with Original Sin and Carnal Sin. The novels are contemporary and grounded in the world as it is today, with the exception of the Seven Deadly Sins who are incarnate demons. When the demons touch someone, that individual loses his conscience and acts on his personal worst sin - to deadly results. Forensics and police investigations also play an important part in the series so while the books are definitely paranormal, they are grounded in criminal procedure. Allison is currently working on the third in the series, Mortal Sin.
Stand by for the spine-tingling second book in the Seven Deadly Sins
Being released simultaneously here and in the US, here is a chilling paranormal thriller for fans of Stephenie Meyer and True Blood.
In Carnal Sin, demon hunters Moira O'Donnell and Rafe Cooper, fresh from their conquest of Evil, now have to take on Lust in the City of Angels.
From the author:
I am thrilled with the response I have received from Australian readers. In 2003 the idea for this series popped into my head when I pictured a teenager running terrified through the woods. Over the next few years I layered on additional ideas, including the premise that the Seven Deadly Sins were actual demons - fallen angels - released from Hell by an evil occult.
