Otherkin is a thrilling, action adventure. Nina Berry takes fun to a whole new level with this group of terrific shape-shifting teenagers. Berry also gives us a teen heroine to be proud of in Dez, and has written a wonderful story that shows these teens will learn they have to stand together in order to fight against the bad guys.The Otherkin series has incredible Urban Fantasy world coupled with sarcastic teen humor, a dramatic storyline, and a sweet, first love romance.

Dez hasn't been the most outgoing girl since she’s had to wear a back brace 23 hours a day for the last two years of her life. Relationships have definitely been off her to-do-list, but that all changes when she suddenly gains a long furry tail and four paws. As if it's not hard enough for her trying to figure out what's going on, there are guys in white coats shooting tranquilizer darts at her and locking her up in a cage. And this is how she meets Caleb, the gorgeous guy that’s fixing to rock her world. But first she will have to rescue him. Caleb is a caller of shadows of the Othersphere, and he tells Dez she’s an Otherkin, which is a shifter. Caleb takes Dez to a school where Morfael, who's also a caller of shadows, will teach her about her tiger side. Dez meets four more teens that are also Otherkin shifters and she discovers that the five Otherkin tribes doesn't like each other. That the different tribes only protect their own kind. Dez wants to change this. Now that the tiger in her has been let loose, Dez is ready to fight the Tribunal who are trying to kill her and the Otherkin tribes. Dez is also finding out that love hurts when she finds out the guy she's fallen for has been lying to her.

Otherkin is fantastic story about a teenage girl who's discovering her true strength as a person and as a tiger shifter who will bring four teen shifters together to fight for each other and lead them into a battle against the Tribunal. I recommend Otherkin as a fun, action read.
