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 s

And so we’ve come full circle. I finished the first book in this series “Sins of the Heart” on Sept 2nd. And here we are on October 2nd and I’m saying farewell to these characters that I’ve come to care about and root for in the past month.

Body of Sin brings the journey of the Krayl brothers to a close and while I’m not 100% satisfied with everything that transpired, I am glad that I picked up this series and it was definitely worth all of the sleepless nights I spent reading it.

Mrs. Badass
Lokan Krayl, murdered son of the Underworld God Sutekh, has been in limbo, or null void, since book One. After learning of their fathers betrayals, Lokan's brothers set out on a course to restore both Lokans body and soul together, and bring him back from the dead. To do this, they need a Guide, or someone who brings souls into the underworld, and can go about undetected. Enter Brnja Carr. Who just happens to be Lokans daughters mother. Catch all that? Good.

I admire the way Eve Silver wrote this

Recommends it for: Readers interested in complicated world building and egyptian mythology
Ok, somehow I picked this book with the assumption that it was the first in the series. It obviously isn't and that became apparent immediately when I started reading it. The world Silver has created, based on Egyptian mythology, is quite complicated to understand and it took me a very long while to realize who was what and their role in the play. Plus, Egyptian theology is one of my least favorite subjects; I consider it quite gruesome and -perhaps it's my fleeting mind- a bit chaotic with its ...more

This book is Amazing!!!!!!!!
I highly recommened this book to everyone who likes PNR. I believe you dont need to have read the first 3 books first but for anyone to fully appreciate the Hero and Heroine's journey, I highly recommed you do so. 

Most my friends know that if they recommend a book, they'll usually get these questions from me; Is the book romantic? Does it have a strong Alpha Male? And most of all, is the book steamy hot!?

I really liked this one. This series is odd. Books 1 & 3 read a lot like typical paranormal romances and I was, reh, ok with them. Books 2 & 4 read more like ancient fables AND I REALLLLLY liked them. It's like two different series mashed into one.

Great encore to Silver's 'Sin'fully good Otherkin series

Although she can mask her signature and appear human, Bryn is a Walker, an Otherkin with the ability to guide souls through the Underworld. Bryn and her daughter Dana have been on the run from those who would use Bryn's talent, but when Bryn discovers that it is now her daughter who is sought by a being of unbeatable power, Bryn will make the ultimate sacrifice in order to retrieve from the Land of the Dead the only person who can protect

Body of Sin by Eve Silver is a paranormal romance set in her Otherkin world.

Oh this series! If only it could have gone on forever! By the time I got to the last book in this series I was completely ready to hear Lokan's story, to find out how he had a daughter, how he was taking the whole being murdered thing. This book does not disappoint. I absolutely loved how it started out, giving you a peek of the beginning. I am such a fan of Eve Silver now and will be reading all of her books.

I really enjoyed this. It was a very satisfying conclusion to a wonderful series. Lokan is a hero worth saving for last, and Bryn, although she came off as ditzy and not very confident at first, really proved herself and got tough when lives were on the line. They were a great couple and their relationship developed very naturally.

Again, this is the conclusion of the series. Don't read it unless you've read the others or it won't make any sense!

Satisfying Conclusion to the Lokan Arc
Lokan Krayl, soul reaper and fourth son of Sutekh, gave himself over to those who were conspiring to kill him in order to secure the safe release of his daughter - a daughter he wasn't supposed to be able to have. Just like, as a demigod, he wasn't supposed to be able to die. So much for supposed to be. He was murdered. Skinned, dismembered, his soul cast into a null zone in the Underworld. Betrayed by the lord he served, the most powerful Underworld lord. H

I really liked the two main characters and their relationship but the keeping the information to the end kept it from being perfect. I knew what would happen but yet no one would say anything. It is like, well you'll see when you see it and we already know, just waiting to see what he will do with it. Argh. Just tell him. Still I loved Bryn and thought that she really made Lokan more than what he was before, so they clicked. Since that is what the PNR is supposed to do it was pretty good. If the ...more

While reading Sins of the Heart, Sins of the Soul and Sins of the Flesh, we got to know three of four brother, soul reapers, Sutekh’s sons, who were brought together because the fourth one was lost, murdered by a force nobody could undercover. Well, not exactly. We finish reading Sins of the Flesh knowing exactly who was behind Lokan’s murder: their own father.

Eve Silver you have officially wowed me.

I have to start off by saying that I have never read Eve Silver before. I had no clue that this was the fourth book in the Otherkin series. However, this was one of the coolest books I have ever read. I always wondered when people were going to weave in Egyptian mythology into a PNR and finally we got one.

For the first few chapters of the book I was naturally confused. These are characters and

This was a great ending to the series. It is definitely a series that has to be read in order and if you haven't read books one through three you shouldn't read this review.

Lokan Krayl, the fourth and final brother and youngest son of Sutekh, has been the focal point linking together all three books up until this point. Which is quite an achievement for a dead guy.

Of course, "dead" is a somewhat fluid term when you are talking about immortal demigods. After having been betrayed by his father: Lo

This was a nice ending of the series. At least for now because I have the feeling there will be more books :-)

Lokan Krayl used to be the most powerful soul reaper, the right hand of his father, Sutekh. He wasnt supposed to die, ever. But he did. Betrayed and murdered, his soul was lost forever in the Null Zone, not alive and not dead.

This review was originally published at Vampire Book Club.

I did not want Body of Sin to end. I was actually sad when I hit page 378, because I wanted more — more Lokan, more Bryn, more of the Underworld. Body of Sin was just that good.

Our hero and heroine are forced to come clean about who they truly are, what they mean to one another as they journey through the Land of the Dead together. Lokan awakes in purgatory alone. He’s given a guide to help him navigate the 12 Gates, and it’s his daughter

The first three books of the Otherkin Series together tell the tale of three sons of the Egyptian underworld god, Sutekh and their quest to discover the identity of their youngest brother’s, Lokan, murder.  If you haven’t read the first three books in the series, you may want to stop reading here, because this review contains SPOILERS from the first three books.

The first three books in this series were all about the murder of Lokan Krayl.

OK, to be fair, they were about solving the murder of Lokan Krayl while his brothers found love and got laid. And the big climax came with the Lokan's resurrection and the revelation of his killer. That was the end of the last book --but only the beginning of Lokan's story.

As this book begins, he is still trapped in the Underworld. And he must pass through a dozen treacherous gates before he can return Topside and reu
