l was really excited when I can across this series on Amazon. I put in a search for paranormal series and this caught my eye for a couple of reasons. One was that it was a complete series that was all ready completely released. It has 8 books, 7 are main books with 1 novella. (I did not read the novella but if interested it should be read between books 4 and 5) Another thing that help decide on this series was that the complete series is available on kindle unlimited and since I haven't read anything from this author it allowed me to get to know her without pressure.
What I loved about the series.
The set up for this series is amazing. It is about 7 sister who are each living with one of the 7 deadly sins. Each sister gets their own book which also means that there are no cliffhangers. Since the books are based on different sins each sister is written different with different characteristics and personalities. Not only are the sisters living with the sins they also are living with magic and apart of a forewarned prophecy involving some well written men.
I really wanted to love this series it had all the makings of something I could fall in love with. The first book was fantastic I loved the story line and the main characters. However the more books I read the more it seemed that the author was copy and pasting from book to book. I understand that there were certain things about these groups of people that did not change but it become so repetitive. Then there was the fact that the women kept saying how powerful they were but their characters took a back seat when it came to the issues being resolved. Thankfully the women did have some strengths in each book so they were not totally off putting to read about. Also the chemistry between each set of main characters was great.
I give the series as a whole 3 stars although some books were rated higher. I would recommend this series to anyone who is first starting out with paranormal. These books show what I find to be the best thing about paranormal romance, the importance of bonds between mates. Also the books aren't that long so you do not need to commit a whole lot of time reading each one.
