#Review: Immortal Sin – Julie Milillo
Amanda Chaste lives a normal life. She does everything by the book, and makes sure nothing is out of place. She’s content with the way her life is going, determined to make the most of things. She has everything she could ever want, and is taken care of by a loving grandmother. Life is good, or so it seems.
Everything changes when she comes across an unexpected boy at a party one night. Her dreams are changing, and she’s seeing things she can’t explain. Things her mind keeps telling her can’t be real. Though she does her best to grasp the meanings behind the strange happenings, Amanda isn’t quite sure of what’s going. Everything seems so surreal. Surely, there’s a plausible explanation for it all?
When Mitch reveals himself to Amanda, and begins to show her what her true world is like, she finds herself struggling to make sense of things. There’s no way she can be what he says she is. An Immortal Sin, born of two distinct races . . . The thought itself is ludicrous.
Tormented by what she doesn’t know, Amanda is forced to confront the secrets surrounding her past. Delving into the unknown is difficult, most especially when you don’t know what’s going on around you. It’s harder still when warring factions are determined in claiming what isn’t theirs. If she’s to succeed in learning all she needs to know about herself, she’ll need to do so as fast as possible. The question is, how can she do that when she’s not exactly sure as to what she should do in the first place?
A lovely start to this series, Julie has taken all things apocalyptic, and given the lore a very unique twist. We’ve always heard about the Nephilim, beings born from the union of a fallen angel and a human. But what happens when an angel and a demon mate? Immortal Sin answers that question, and gives us a slew of new questions as to how someone born of that union survives the pain and uncertainty surrounding his or her birth. I’m definitely looking forward to what comes next for Amanda and the others.
What lies beneath the hidden secret?
Can love rise above the inevitable?
And most importantly, where will her fate lead her?
Amanda Chaste had lived what she considered an average life in New Jersey, looked after and cared for by her grandmother. But when she accidentally meets an enigmatic stranger from out of town, her world is drastically thrown upside down. A hidden secret has been buried in the past and not even Amanda can save herself from her own fate.
Conflicted and tormented within her own flesh, discovering her true identity will prove to be something that will change her life forever.
