Only they could save each other from the sins of their fathers . . .
She’s never met a rule she didn’t want to break Rebellious Eleanor is sick of her mother’s zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she'll never go to church again. He’s the one man she can’t have But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Marcus Stearns–Søren to her and only her–is an epiphany. Eleanor is consumed–yet even she knows being in love with a priest can’t be right. But some rules are just made to be broken . . . And then a whole world opens when Søren reveals to her his deepest secrets that will change everything.

It got me just one chapter to start panicking! I almost didn’t want to keep reading, and that says a lot considering my love for this series. Go on, read the book and then tell me I overreacted. I bet you will hold your breath until the very last page . . .

After the initial panic attack—but not the last one—I was drawn into Nora’s story and her very first encounter with Søren, and boy if I cracked up during the read! I simply loved the rebellious Eleanor, her theological discussions with her unique priest, and how Tiffany Reisz beautifully portrayed their building relationship. You think you got everything sorted out after The Mistress, but I can assure you more pieces of the puzzle fits together here and Kingsley proves once more to be the best sinner character ever! I just found myself having mixed feeling for Nico. I’m not sure about his interaction with Nora, which at times kinda bothered me. Then, I suppose I have to wait for the next book to come out and see if I’ll change my mind. With a brilliant author such as Reisz, I wouldn’t be surprised to see that happening.

A piece of advice to those new to the series, past and present are mixed here, so be sure to read the first four instalments in the series beforehand. It is essential to properly follow the present events, but even more so to fall for the characters and one of the most powerful stories ever told!

  1. Ooo and I am kicking myself cause once again you are singing praises and making me drool and I still need to read one and two sitting on my Nook. *facepalm* I love that this had you on edge but laughing too.

    i haven't read this series or even heard all that much about it but you've got me seriously interested in them! They sounds like really interesting reads that i'd love to devour lol!

  3. Andrea @The Bookish Babe

    I happened to have gotten this in the mail today! I loved books one and two, but am hopelessly behind now!
    Glad you enjoyed, Silvia!

  4. Oh! I just started this series, so I couldn't read your review, but I'm happy to see that you gave it a 4 rating, as I really look forward to reading this.
    Have a great week, Silvia 🙂

  5. Hehe, I admit I love the fact that my reviews have that effect on you, Kimberly 😛 Btw, with this series you can't go wrong: tears, laughs and sighs are assured in every single instalment!

  6. It's possibly the strongest, most fascinating and most mind blowing story I have ever read in this genre. I personally LOVE it, but I understand it's not for everyone. If you try it, I'll be curious to know what you think, Melliane.

  7. I'm glad you started the series, Lexxie! This is actually my first 4 rating for The Original Sinners, I gave a 5 to each previous instalment, but that of course doesn't mean this isn't another fantastic addition to the series. Anyway, my reviews don't contain any spoilers, ever. So feel free to read it, if you like 🙂

    I've read the first couple of books but I've still got to catch up so good to see that you enjoyed this one.

    Oh, I'm so glad you stuck with The Saint and enjoyed it so much, Silvia. I haven't read this series but I *ahem* have the books sitting on my bookshelf. *hangs head* Soo many books, so little time. 🙂 But I gotta meet Kingsley!

  10. I think I'm like the last one to have not read this series! I've had them on the tbr pile since the first came out and dang it was like there was a frenzy of them all the sudden. I'm so gonna have to find the time for them. Glad to hear the initial panic didn't end it for ya!

  11. On the contrary, it put me on the edge and gave me the right adrenaline rush to keep going to find answers out… Nevertheless, I really put a hand on my mouth and almost screamed at the beginning, that was how big of a shock the start was for me! You gotta love Tiffany and her diabolical but brilliant mind, and rest assured that every book will give you the most unexpected and strongest of the emotions!
