Pre Pub Book Buzz - Original Sin

Bestselling author Allison Brennan is about to launch her brand new Seven Deadly Sins series with Original Sin, due out (officially) January 26.

Brennan, author of the Predator Trilogy (The Prey, The Hunt, and The Kill), The No Evil trilogy (Speak No Evil, See No Evil, and Fear No Evil), The Prison Break trilogy (Killing Fear, Tempting Evil, and Playing Dead), and Sudden Death, Fatal Secrets, and Cutting Edge is now delving into the paranormal and I simply can't wait!

Fortunately I don't have to. I've been following Brennan's Murderati and Facebook posts on this new release, crossing my fingers that I could get my hands on a copy, and now I have! I'll be reading over the weekend (possibly even starting it tonight if I have time!) and plan to review next week -- just in time for the release.

Until then, here's the synopsis from Allison's website:

A coven of witches well versed in the black arts unleash the Seven Deadly Sins on earth - as incarnate demons with an agenda. Raised a witch in her mother's powerful coven, Moira O'Donnell ran away when she learned her mother planned to sacrifice her to be "mediator" between the underworld and all united covens. Forsaking her power after her lover was killed by magic, she must stop her mother from controlling the Seven Deadly Sins or the balance of power between the worlds will shift forever to the dark side.

The first three installments in the series are due out this year, with Carnal Sin set for a summer release and Mortal Sin set for a fall release. And if you're as excited about this book as I am, you can check out an excerpt from the book at Random House's Original Sin page here.

For more on Allison Brennan and this series, don't forget to check out her website (link above) where you can sign up for her newsletter, and mark your calendar for January 26 (I expect this one will be available a few days early in some stores, so keep an eye out for it next week!).
