Twenty-two years ago, I was cut from a cold, sodden womb, and cradled in the filth and poverty of Chicago’s concrete arms. Statistically, I wasn’t supposed to survive these streets past the age of eighteen.
Fate had a different plan.
I was bred for one purpose and one purpose only: to unleash death and destruction on my world.
My thoughts are power.
My words are weapons.
Evil created me then grace tried to save me. But first… they tried to kill me.
They call themselves the Se7en. They are sin and salvation, and everything we’ve feared from the beginning of time. And their leader is the deadliest of them all.
He doesn’t lose.
He doesn’t compromise.
And most importantly, he doesn’t distract himself with mortal weakness.
Not until me.
Kill one to save a million.
That’s what he told me when he took me as his prisoner.
Kill one to save a million.
That’s what he’s been trying to tell himself ever since he took me into his arms.
I was so curious when I saw the blurb for Born Sinner by SL jennings. I love me some PNR and this looked delicious and dark. And OMG was it ever!
I don’t even know what to tell you about this book because it is something that really needs to be read with as few spoilers as possible. And by that I really mean that you go in essentially blind and let SL Jennings do the world building and learn it all as she discloses it.
This is a story of light and dark. Angels and demons. Heaven and Hell. Learning about oneself. Finding your true motivations. Listening to your conscience. This is not your ordinary angels and demons books. Nothing is as simple as it seems. I was glued to those pages, trying to figure everything out. This story is dark. It isn’t always pretty. But it will grip you, captivate you, hold you fast until you realize you can’t turn anymore pages. Then you just say AHHHHHHHH GIVE ME MORE!
Yes. This is Book 1 in the Se7en Sinners Series. And it sets the groundwork beautifully. I wouldn’t have wanted any more in this story (don’t get me wrong.. I want more! I can’t WAIT to get my hands on the next book) but Born Sinners was perfectly paced and ended at a spot, though it left me hanging, panting for more… made so much sense to end there.
My feelings were all over the place as I followed the twists and turns that were laid out in Born Sinner. I was scared one second hopeful the next. But through it all I was rooting for Eden. I want it all to be right for her so badly. She has been through hell in her life.. I don’t want to see her actually ending up in HELL! The danger, the secrets, the mystery… I can’t wait to finish unraveling the story of Eden and the Se7en!
If you are a PNR fan you NEED this book!
I received a complimentary copy of Born Sinner in exchange for my honest review.
