Body of Sin
is the fourth book in Eve Silver’s Otherkin series. Having not read the first three books in the series, I was worried that I would be lost in this world and wouldn’t be able to identify with the characters. I am glad to say that this was not the case. Although Silver has said that you can read it as a standalone novel, it’s probably best to start from the beginning with Sin of the Heart
. I will definitely be checking out the first three books in the series. I was very impressed.
Lokan Krayl used to have it all before he was murdered. And now, Lokan has a chance when his immortal brothers resurrect him. But first, he has to pass through the twelve gates of Osiris, a daunting task.
Bryn Carr is his guide. But the two of them aren’t on the best of terms. In fact, their history with one another haunts them to this day. There were times when I didn’t really like Bryn’s character. I loved her motherly protectiveness and her relationship with her daughter, Dana but those flashbacks into her past with Lokan didn’t do it for me. While Lokan found her running mouth to be endearing, I thought it to be a little annoying. Thankfully, the entire book is not like that and we can see the growth in Bryn’s character as Silver switching back from the past to the present. I much preferred the fierce, protective Bryn over the chatting, naive Bryn.
But what probably shines the most from this book is Silver’s worldbuilding. I’m sure that if I read the other books in the series, I would be in love with Silver because the world is so intricate and impressive. While reading this one, I felt like I was being bombarded with many terms and characters. Silver deserves a round of applause for creating such a unique and complex world. I loved the history and the idea behind this world.
Furthermore, I have to rave about her writing style. Silver has a distinct voice in her writing and I loved it! Her writing flows and she pays great attention to detail, which I can appreciate. She gets a definite thumbs up from me!
Overall, Body of Sin was a great book! I already have the first three and there is no doubt that I’ll be going back to read them soon!

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
