Review by Courtney

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

Immortal Sin is the story of Amanda Chaste.  Living in New Jersey with her grandmother, Nan, she has never met her father and hasn’t spoken with her mother in two years.  Her life is simple, she has her best friend Alexis and Alexis’ boyfriend Gregg.  When Alexis has a party while her parents are gone, Amanda comes face to face with her fate and her true identity.  Mitch is a demon, sent to finish “The List,”  when he collides with Amanda at a high school party he sees something in her eyes that he can’t explain.  There is something about her, she is like him but there is something more to her.

When Amanda begins to discover her true identity she finds herself turning to Mitch for answers, the problem is he can only help her with certain aspects of her abilities.  I found that the first half of the book was slow, there were more questions than answers.  Mitch, even being what he was, didn’t have any answers.  It seemed that the whole time Amanda was just practicing her abilities and questioning what she was. There were also times when Amanda’s thoughts or conversations with Mitch became redundant, like her remembering him eating pizza or her trying to understand her feelings for him. 

The end of the book did get more interesting.  With Gregg and Ravish’s involvement in the story the drama gets a little more intense. There are also a few more questions answered, but I still felt like I wanted more from this story.  It didn’t grab me the way I hoped it would, it seemed I was reading the same stuff over and over again.  However, I do feel that with the way the book ended it could lead to a very interesting second installment.  It seems that Amanda is going to have a big fight on her hands, and that’s what I would hope the second book brings,  more suspense, more discoveries and more details.   I gave Immortal Sin 3 out of 5 books.
