Review: Original Sin by Lisa Desrochers

Original Sin (Personal Demons, #2)

Luc Cain was born and raised in Hell, but he isn’t feeling as demonic as usual lately—thanks to Frannie Cavanaugh and the unique power she never realized she had. But you can’t desert Hell without consequences, and suddenly Frannie and Luc find themselves targeted by the same demons who used to be Luc’s allies.

Left with few options, Frannie and Luc accept the protection of Heaven and one of its most powerful angels, Gabe. Unfortunately, Luc isn’t the only one affected by Frannie, and it isn’t long before Gabe realizes that being around her is too…tempting. Rather than risk losing his wings, he leaves Frannie and Luc under the protection of her recently-acquired guardian angel.

Which would be fine, but Gabe is barely out the door before an assortment of demons appears—and they’re not leaving without dragging Luc back to Hell with them. Hell won’t give up and Heaven won’t give in. Frannie’s guardian exercises all the power he has to keep them away, but the demons are willing to hurt anyone close to Frannie in order to get what they want. It will take everything she has and then some to stay out of Hell’s grasp.

And not everyone will get out of it alive.

Review and Rating: 3-3.5
First off I love how Desrochers writes. I love that she isn't one of those shy YA writers. She doesn't back down from how teens really act and what life really feels like. I couldn't give this book as high a rating as the first though. I found myself too often annoyed by the characters going around the same internal problems over and over again. That's how people really are though so it made sense.  I liked it, its a descent book but I'm personally hoping the third one comes back and steals me like the first.
