Review: Original Sin by Megan J. Parker and Nathan Squiers


"Our sin would change everything."
There was something different about Joseph Stryker.
I knew I shouldn't have gotten involved, but the way he looked at me called to me. It was unnatural, inhuman, and more importantly...
The origin story of Xander Stryker's (Crimson Shadow series) parents and the backstory of how their sin would change everything. A look into Joseph Stryker's life and the movement they started with falling in love. 

I received this ARC to give an honest review.

First let me say I love this cover so sexy and perfect for the novella. Now on to the story. If you have read the Crimson Shadow series by Nathan than you might want to understand how his parents met and fell in love. This is their story, short, and to the point.

When Emily saves Joseph their whole live changes. Joseph can not keep Emily out of his mind and neither can Emily. Though Joseph knows it is wrong to not only fall in love with a human which we know Emily is, she could be in danger by just knowing his name. Because remember the Stryker name is famous with the enemies. 
 This is a fantastic story and a welcoming insight to the Crimson Shadow series. It is perfect all around. Short, fast-paced and will keep you wanting more. There is the sexiness of Joseph, a love that is like no other, of course some ass-kicking because you can't read a story that involves a Stryker without it. I can not wait to read more of these author's work. They have a story to tell and they can sure tell it.

Megan J. Parker
Megan J. Parker lives in a small town in Upstate NY with her fiancee and two devil kitties. She loves all things art and is usually writing, designing or editing videos. 
She started with writing poetry before slowly developing into writing short stories and finally, her work developed into novels. :)

Born in Massachusetts in 1986, Nathan Squiers (The Literary Dark Emperor) grew up in Andover, where his affinity for story-telling flourished due to a love of books and movies as well as an overactive imagaination. At the age of 13, Nathan and his mother moved to Upstate New York to be closer to their family. 

After surviving public school, where he spent most of his days locked away in the AV room watching old 80s movies on Laserdisc and planning out his next video project, Nathan began a shaky college career. A love of weaving tales and telling stories was motivation enough to pursue an education in English, and, as luck would have it, a series of phenomenal professors were available to get him pointed in the right direction. It was in his first years of college that Nathan began to actively pursue a writing career, starting his first literary journey with a piece that would later become "Noir", the first book of the Crimson Shadow series.

Like any good story, a chaotic turn of events brought Nathan from the very brink of insanity and loneliness to the warm, comforting embrace of Megan, his best friend, lover, kindred spirit, and--more often than not--personal handler. It was with Megan at his side that Nathan was able to continue his writing (sometimes solely motivated by the young lady;s threats of dismemberment if he tried to stop). With Megan's help, Nathan was able to see Death Metal, his fourth manuscript, through the publication process.

Nearly ten years later, The Literary Dark Emperor continues to invent stories and put them into a literary sequence that he hopes will be somehow decipherable by other readers. As a lover of all things creative, he works in both novels, novellas, short stories, as well as comic book scripts (just don't ask him to draw something if you don't like stick figures and poorly-executed shapes).

If he's not submerged in the realm of fiction or burning out his retinas with horror movie marathons, Nathan is planning/getting a new piercing/tattoo or enjoying life with his lovely fiance.
