I am so glad I stuck with this series! These books just keep getting better and better. Mal, Alastor and Dagan still haven't solved the mystery of their brother Lokan's death. Alastor and Dagan are each mated to a Daughter of Aset. And now, it's Mal's turn.

Calliope has no idea who or what Mal is when she approaches him in a bar. She only knows that she needs to feed from the energy of a man and she'd rather use sex than blood to get her fill. Since Mal is essentially sex on a stick, he seems a p

In Sins of the Flesh it's final Soul Reaper son of Sektet Mal's turn to take a stab at solving the mystery behind the brutal - and supposedly impossible - death of his brother Lokan. While hunting for clues Mal vies with Calliope Kane to gain possesion of a man who may have the answers Mal seeks and the answers the daughter of Asset seek to surpress. Calliope's hatred of Soul Reapers is much more than the bad blood between their patron gods - Callipoe's reasons are far more personal. As adversar ...more
This is book three of the Otherkin trilogy. If I am not mistaken, book three of a trilogy means 'its a wrap'. Not the case here. Although I love Ms. Silver's writing (for the most part) and the story concept, I am very disappointed in the ending.

The main characters -- Mal and Calliope were introduced in the first book. They hooked up in this book pretty much following the same script as the previous books. I simplify but basically it was a template that worked well through three books. Ms. Silve

Its been very interesting getting to know each of the Krayl brothers and watching them fall in love one by one with woman who are suppose to be their enemies. I think I’ve said this before, but I love how even though the outcome of each book in this series is essentially the same regarding the boys and their love lives, I like that Eve Silver uses a different approach and puts the boys on different paths to get them to that point.

Malthus Krayl is a soul reaper and one of the sons of the Underworld god of chaos Sutekh. He lives each moment to the fullest and nothing means more to him than his brothers. After the murder of his youngest brother, he goes in search for information to find those responsible and make them pay. Before Mal could get anything out of the man he knows has information, he is taken from Mal by a tempting beauty he should not crave.

Eve Silver has officially made my auto-buy list. As I said in my review of the second Otherkin book Sins of the Soul, her prose is stunning. The same is true in Sins of the Flesh, the final book in the trilogy.

Through the three novels, we have met three soul reaper brothers — demigods — who have sought the remains of their brother in the hopes of resurrecting him. Malthus, the brother focused on in Sins of the Flesh, is also keen to make tho

His 3rd brother Lokan was skinned and butchered, beginning the Otherkin trilogy with Sins of the Heart. In Sins of the Flesh, Dagan, Alastor and Mal continue their search to find out
My favorite story as I loved Mal the best of the 3 brothers from the very beginning... However it is also my least favorite couple pairing which takes away some of the enjoyment.... Mal Krayl wants the world to see him as someone who only wants a good time, what he does not want is for anyone to see past that shield he has erected to keep himself from emotional pain! Having lost his "love hundreds of years ago he has since then connected only physically and never emotionally with his bed partner ...more
Sins of the Flesh is the 3rd and final book in the Otherkin trilogy. It tells the story from Malthus Krayl's perspective. The search for their brother's soul and killer continues.

Calliope, Roxy's former mentor and Daughter of Aset, is a strong character. We first met her in book #1, Sins of the Heart. At first, I wasn't sure if she was a good mate for Malthus, who is an adrenaline junkie and risk-taker and more importantly, Calliope hates Soul Reapers. But, their story quickly has you hoping tha

My favorite of the series so far and I think it has much to do with the hero (Mal). That being said, the truth about this series' mystery is revealed in this book, so reading them in order is A MUST (I hated book 2, though). And it's basically a not-so-shocking-in-hindsight SHOCKER which leaves us with one of Eve Silver's signature cliffhangers (she's GOOD at them, too). I was DEFINITELY left intrigued and can't wait to read the next book in this series!

DNF. I bought this on sale at audible months ago not realizing it was book 3 in a series that MUST be read in order. After about 10% into this one I was so lost. I may pick up the first two some day if they ever make the sale, but what I listened to didn't exactly peek my interest anyway.
This was definitely better than the second book and nearly as good as the first. I really like the plot of this series and apprecitate the different POVs - especially that we see all the others again.

Calliope and Mal were difficult for me, the first half was not very complementary for them. I hoped to get a better connection to Calliope but she was not really what I expected. the second half was way better and turned the scales in the 4-stars-direction.

I actually expected to like her more than

Eve Silver has gained a new fan, I really enjoyed Sins of the Flesh and just wish I had read the two previous Otherkin novels (Sins of the Heart and Sins of the Soul) I own the first in the series, but didn't have the opportunity to read it , and now I plan on buying the second. Despite not having read the previous installments, Sins of the Flesh works as a stand alone. I wasn't thrown by the series storyline arc as Silver deftly weaved the background into her story.

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

(from Murphy's Library -

The third book of the Otherkin series is about the last—alive—son of Sutekh: Mal. We get a little glimpse of Mal in the first too books, and I—and Maeva too—was crazy to read about him and discover who would be his mate. After Dagan and Alastor mating process with two Daughters of Aset, I already had an idea that Mal would mate with one of them too. It seems Sutekh’s sons have a soft side for those girls.

However, I didn’t think Mal would ma

Book 3 in the OtherKin series is all about the 3rd brother, Mal. We get to dive further into the mystery and suspense of the death of Lokan and all the players that are intertwined with it. This mystery just get more and more twisted, and the big finale of it all is just amazing!

Mal, our main male lead in this book, is a player. Ever since losing his love hundreds of years ago, when he was still a young man and unaware of his parentage, Mal has jumped from one bed to the next, never settling do

Malthus Krayl, now the youngest of the three remaining soul reaper sons of Sutekh, überlord of the Underworld, is the only one of his brothers who doesn't think they are going to be able to bring their murdered brother Lokan back from the dead. The adrenaline junkie with a bad boy Lothario complex a mile wide keeps that opinion on the down low, however, because he's right on board with both Dagan and Alastor about finding whomever is responsible for that death and ma

First book that I’ve read by Eve Silver and I see I’ve started with book number 3. The Egyptian theme overrode my doubts about reading another man whore novel since it’s not my favourite theme by the longest stretch.

Calliope Kane took no crap from anyone including overly confident bad boy and hated soul reaper Malthus Krayl. Both are lethal and determined to outwit the other in obtaining their objective from opposing fronts and for different reasons. Callie is not above using brutal force to ge

What an ending... what an ending!

Eve Silver's work will titillate all your senses and have you utterly engulfed.

I really enjoy novels that have close release dates. It was especially smart with this trilogy because each book is more of a continuation into the next with Sins of the Flesh closing out grand story line. With that said, each book (Sins of the Heart, Soul and Flesh) has it's own sub-plot full of peril and romance.

What I loved about this novel was the pairing of Mal and Calliope. They
'Sins of the Flesh' was, IMO, marginally better than the previous 'Sins of the Soul', but I do think this series is falling a bit short of what it could be.

The highlight of the 'Otherkin' books for me is still the first, 'Sins of the Heart' - Eve Silver did a pretty good job of world building and Dagan Krayl remains my favorite soul reaper brother. In both SotS and SotF, I feel that Silver missed a golden (ha!) opportunity to really help the reader get to know Alastor and Mal, respectively. Bot

**warning may contain spoilers**

First off don't let the trilogy label fool you! I went into Sins of the Flesh assuming that this was the last one in the trilogy, that everything finally plays out and it would (hopefully) by one big HEA. With each page turned and the ending getting closer & closer I had a suspicious feeling that was not going to be the case. Too much needed to be unraveled with to few pages left, it was either going to be a rushed/abrupt ending or another cliff-hanger that (a

The three books of the Otherkin Trilogy together tell the tale of the sons of the Egyptian underworld god, Sutekh and their quest to discover the identity of their youngest brother’s murder. There are clues and hints that help are woven into each story (especially in the first book) that are necessary if you are like me and want to figure out “whodunit” before the author tells you.

The third book, Sins of the Flesh, picks up after the second story finishes. The focus of this book is the third so

"I peccati dell'anima" è il terzo e penultimo della serie Otherkin, ed è dedicato a Mal, il fratello più spericolato e scanzonato. Mi aspettavo quindi una storia avventurosa, con bei colpi di scena e una storia d'amore altamente infiammabile (e in effetti Mal prende letteralmente non grazie a Calliope XD) e invece per gran parte del libro non succede niente di ri

The 3rd installment of the Otherkin Series is finally upon us!! There were so many questions left unanswered in the last book, and I sent up a little prayer to the book gods that Silver wouldn’t leave me with a total cliff hanger at the end of this one too! Especially since the next book isn’t out until next year.

Malthus has has a policy about women, he loves them and leaves them, but when one woman leaves him she intrigues him and when their paths cross again he's compelled to find out more about Calliope, who hates soul reapers and is determined to get her way, without his help.

Meanwhile Malthus is still trying to find out why and how his brother died and was dismembered. He's also trying to resist her, she's not what he usually goes for and she doesn't let him away with anything, he has to step up to

Once again (or still) the brothers Krayl are searching for their murdered brother Lokan's body and soul. This time Malthus is center stage along with Calliope Kane, a Daughter of Aset. Calliope has issues with soul reapers - she hates them with a passion - but she's also hot for Mal. Hmm what to do, what to do.

The way she moved was a thing of beauty, all grace and sinew. And legs and boobs and ass. And icy control. How long would that last if he started at the bottom and licked his way to the t

“Mal dragged the last few inches of the sword free of his flesh, wincing at the raw pain. She's stabbed him. She'd f**king pinned him to the wall like a bug. She'd fed from him and used his own blood and power against him. He hadn't seen that coming. He was both affronted by - and admiring of - her resourcefulness.” 4 likes
