Sins of the Flesh by Eve Silver

Sins of the Flesh (Hqn)Title: Sins of the Flesh
Author: Eve Silver
Series: The Otherkins (book #3)
Previous in series: Sins of the Soul
Next in series: Body of Sin

My rating: 5 Stars

Synopsis: Malthus Krayl is intent on discovering the truth behind the heinous murder of his brother and will let nothing stand in his way until he encounters Calliope Kane, a sworn enemy who tempts him beyond reason. As a Daughter of Aset, Calli has an intense personal and professional hatred of Soul Reapers and is particularly unnerved when she finds herself inexplicably drawn to one. Mal and Calli must learn to trust their feelings before the traitors in their midst get the better of them both.

Review: This series just gets better and better and Eve Silver has fast become a must buy author for me.

We finally learn who is behind the conspiracy and it is quite a revelation even though I was able to figure it out toward the end. The book does end quite abruptly and many questions are left unanswered but there is at least one more installment so I’m not too distressed.

Mal and Calli are definitely my favorite of the three couples so far. Their intense chemistry and battle of wills pulls you in from the first moment and even though there are serious obstacles to their relationship, they are resolved in a believable manner (if a tad too quickly) and there isn't the excessive angst that characterizes Naphre and Alastor's romance.

Calliope is a wonderful character. I particularly enjoyed her wit, intelligence and determination as well as the fact that she kicks butt and stands her ground against an immortal Soul Reaper. Mal, the “bad boy” brother has his own brand of ethics and is not above taking what he wants when he wants it. I found his seize the moment approach to life quite refreshing.

The writing has also improved dramatically from the first book and the plot, which was always complex and intriguing, gets a few more twists and turns. I can’t wait to read the next book which I will be reading very soon as I have been fortunate to receive Body of Sin as an ARC from NetGalley. So stay tuned!
