Series: Original Sinners

Review: The Chateau – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Chateau – Tiffany Reisz

The Chateau was wickedly delicious and deliciously wicked. I loved this glimpse into Kingsley’s past, how he was already both a giver and a receiver of pain.. Story: Reisz always mesmerizes me with her storytelling, and I was immediately immersed in The Chateau with Kingsley. In this story, I got to know Kingsley better, and I loved seeing him as a young man. How he lived with the aftermath of his relationship with Søren. What he actually did for the hidden branch of the French government. And how he got entangled with a community where women were boss. In the Chateau, Kingsley wasn’t only a government agent, he was also a player. And he played rather well if the girl […]

Review: Michael’s Wings – Tiffany Reisz

Review: Michael’s Wings – Tiffany Reisz

Michael’s Wings… *sighs* I wish I had had the self control to read this selection of short novellas much slower. But that was simply impossible. The stories were all irresistible, and it made me so happy to be in the Orginal Sinners universe once more! Stories: All the stories in Michael’s Wings are set in the Original Sinners universe. If you know me at all, you know I absolutely love everything about the characters, the universe and the stories Reisz writes in this series. Each story brings something new to the table. A little quirk a character has. A different perspective on something that happened. A vulnerability that had been well hidden in the past. And, as always, the writing […]

Review: Something Nice – Tiffany Reisz

Review: Something Nice – Tiffany Reisz

Something Nice gives Søren and Nora’s fans a glimpse into 24 hours in their life. A glimpse that shows almost the full rainbow of their feelings for each other, all the love, the fear, the hate, the generosity… It’s really all there. Something Nice is a way for Reisz to give back to her readers! A free story about Søren and Nora; it was like Christmas in July. And it fulfilled a craving I didn’t even know was there until I started reading. As always, it is a treat to be part of the intimate relationship between the two protagonists, and I just sighed with pleasure at this story – it started out extremely hot and heavy… and ended on […]

Review: Poinsettia – Tiffany Reisz

Review: Poinsettia – Tiffany Reisz

Poinsettia is the perfect Christmas story! Because young Søren showing humility and grace is not something I expected at all, but Reisz graciously gave it to me anyway. My Poinsettia review: One Christmas Eve, long ago, in a brothel in Rome, Søren might have spent the most peaceful and moving Christmas ever – in the company of a sadist madam, who wanted to teach him to keep his masochists alive… And that was a very powerful, beautifully written tale shared for free with The Original Sinners fans. I’m not going to say much about this, the quotes (which could have been many more!) can speak for themselves. The prose is absolutely gorgeous, and seeing a vulnerable side of Søren was […]

Review: The Queen – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Queen – Tiffany Reisz

The Queen definitely does tie up loose ends, and it also shows the spectacular talent Ms. Reisz has with words… Everything Kingsley, Nora and Søren went through was worth it – because through all the heartache and pain, the found themselves, and each other, again. My The Queen review: While I am very sorry the Original Sinners series is over now, what a way to go! The Queen continues just after the end of The Virgin, however, most of the story folds out as a story Nora tells Søren, with only glimpses to the present. As always, Ms. Reisz’s storytelling is far above par, it’s always amazing to me how involved I have become in these characters, and how connected […]

Review: The Mistress – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Mistress – Tiffany Reisz

The Mistress shows yet another side of Nora, while bringing her allies to the forefront to do their best so she and Søren will stay safe… and alive. My The Mistress review: As the summary states, in The Mistress, Nora is held captive and she tells her captor a story every evening, both to keep both of them occupied and to stay alive to see another day. Of course, I, as a reader, was part of the audience to Nora’s stories as well. Stories about Kingsley, Søren, how they met, and their first kinky encounters. And learning more about the past the three main characters in The Original Sinners shared is something I crave more and more with each book. […]

Review: The Prince – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Prince – Tiffany Reisz

The Prince is so well written! Even with all the kink that kind of makes me uncomfortable, I love this series and the characters so much! My The Prince review: The Prince is different than the first two books in the Original Sinners series, if only for the fact that while Søren and Nora are separated for a big part of the story, I was still able to follow both of them. And I loved that Wes was so present, too, because of how things were left between him and Nora when they parted ways. The mystery wasn’t all that mysterious to me though, which is one part of why I didn’t give The Prince five stars. I thought some […]

Review: The Angel – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Angel – Tiffany Reisz

The Angel continues to show the strange world in which Nora evolves, surrounded by both friends and enemies. My The Angel review: One of the things I really loved in The Angel is that while Søren and Nora can still be seen as the main characters of the story, along with Kingsley, I also got to spend a lot of time with Michael and Griffin in this instalment. Michael was Nora’s angel in The Siren, and seeing him gain confidence and find love was nothing short of amazing. Once more, I was amazed at Ms. Reisz’s beautiful prose, because even when I was reading stuff that made me uncomfortable, I was frantically reading, pushing the ‘next page’ button on my […]

Review: The Siren (Original Sinners #1) – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Siren (Original Sinners #1) – Tiffany Reisz

My The Siren Review The Siren is both quite horrifying, strangely beautiful, enticing, beautiful, scary, hot and delicious all the while making me feel slightly guilty for enjoying it so much! The prose is nothing short of amazing, and I think that is what made me love it so much, because even during a scene that disturbed me a little, the writing was so beautiful I still loved it. And Nora, she is definitely a heroine in every sense of the word! One thing I really loved in The Siren is that Nora is an author, and Zach her editor. And I have to say I enjoyed the e-mails going back and forth between them, with Zach telling her to […]
