J.L. McCoy’s ‘The Original Sin’ (Book 3) Review and Swag Pack Giveaway

Review by Cassie Hoffman

The Original Sin

(BOOK 3 in the Skye Morrison series. Spoilers if you haven’t read the first two)

Skye Morrison is a twenty-three year old woman who is on the top of the world. Getting the best job you could imagine, finding out vampires are real and falling for two of them, but after being kidnapped and tortured by the “Original” first vampire, now she is asking herself if she should even be in this world that she didn’t even knew existed until a little over a month ago.

Skye is having a hard time coming to terms with being kidnapped and trying to go on with her life like it was before. Being forced to live with vampires until they can find Amun and kill him she is now not able to go anywhere by herself. This includes her and all the other vampires in the family.

Skye and Jameson have made it official and are head over heels with each other. Skye got her crush, but she is still has feelings for Jameson’s brother/maker Archer. (WHAT DOES A GIRL DO!)

Since being kidnapped and almost dying, Skye has been having nightmares starring Amun. He comes to her in her dreams, and every time she wakes up screaming. Keeping her dreams of Amun a secret from Jameson and Archer is getting harder to do.

After waking up one night in a panic, Skye goes to Archer and tells him what has been happening. With the secret out, Archer has no choice but to surprise an attack of Skye to make sure she isn’t a Trojan Horse for Amun. The vampires literally mind rape Skye to see if she is a Trojan. Skye once again is knocking on Heaven’s door thanks to a vampire.

After being forcibly held down and having the vampires enter her mind without her permission, she no longer can trust any of them, which include her own boyfriend Jameson. Breaking up with Jameson and not talking to the other vampires in the house, Skye secludes herself and falls into a depression.

With Skye not feeling safe and not trusting them she ask to go back to her own home with a guard, but soon everything turns more upside down for Skye. What more can go wrong in this girl’s world?

Just like the previous two books, The Original Sins was just as good and filled with ups and downs. A lot of questions get answered, but were also left with a BIG question at the end. You may find yourself like I did saying “OH MAN, NO!” Lol. I felt for Skye, she lost trust in everyone around her and had no idea who she could turn to. In The Original Sins we FINALLY get some Skye and Jameson fun… Like always the characters are just as funny, making you wish you had some friends like them. J.L. McCoy left us with TO BE COUNTINUED…. And I can’t wait to sink my fangs into the next book, to see what the hell is going on with Skye. Once again I give this book Five GOTHIC stars!!!


“You guys just aren’t fair, between your vampire pheromones and your gorgeous good looks, we humans just don’t stand a chance.”- Skye

“I’m not staying Archer, I can’t trust you not to hurt me again if it serves whatever purposes you decide to come up with that day. I want nothing more to do with you…with any of you. I’m done with vampires. You all have done nothing but bring me pain since I met you.”- Skye

“This isn’t the girl I fell in love with. My sweet, giving, patient, loving, caring, fun-loving Skye disappeared when you were kidnapped. I’m so scared I’ll never get her back.”-Archer
