These are only a few of the issues Elias Cain must contend with in Sins of the Father. I enjoyed this tale Elias Raven created. There were times I did get pulled out of story do to formatting within the dialogue it still kept my interest. Maybe that’s because I enjoy a good story about good vs evil, angels vs demons, man vs the supernatural whatever the case this made me want to read.

Now I’ll be honest I was expecting a lot more sex so I was completely shocked with the how much actual sex happens in the story. This truly is more of the love story but that is just an under current of what is really going on. The story, even as is changes POV, is about Elias and his journey into becoming who he is supposed to be. It’s like a vision quest or walkabout, yet for Elias he will learn dark and hidden family secrets and no one would want to learn right after the death of a loved one especial not your image6father.

Not only will Elias Raven paint you a picture of a timeless theory but he also using poetry at the beginning of each chapter to set the tone and give you an inkling of which character will lead you down the rabbit hole.

So take this suspense filled journey with Elias Raven, slip down the rabbit hole and into a world where Heaven and Hell are about to collide.
