2011 Debut Author Challenge Update - July 11, 2011

The Qwillery is delighted to announce that Linda Poitevin has joined the 2011 Debut Author Challenge. Linda's debut novel, Sins of the Angels (The Grigori Legacy 1) will be published in late September by Ace (Penguin).

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.

I love this cover and not only because Alexandra Jarvis is not in midriff-baring leather! Look for an interview with Linda in October.


  1. This book sounds like a fun read with an interesting premise (how can anyone resist angels acting badly). And like you, I love the fact that the heroine portrayed on the cover looks like an actual detective.

    I'm definitely going to check this one out when it gets released.

  2. Thanks for sharing today, this book sounds really fun. I look forward to reading more of what you have to say.

  3. Hi, Marg K. I'm looking forward to reading Sins of the Angels. I also like how Alexandra's hair is backlit and the angel in the distance. I must find out who the cover artist is.

    Hi, Denise Z. Thank you for stopping by. There will be at least 1, maybe 2, additional Debut Author Challenge Updates this week. :)
