"The enemy of my enemy is my friend."
And there it was, a seed of hope, uncoiling in his heart.

The dark mystery/overarching storyline of the Sins series reaches its fascinating conclusion in Body of Sin and there will be potential spoilers in this review that you may wish to avoid. This fourth and final book should only be read once the reader experiences the myriad twists and romantic turns that come in the books prior.

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

Heads up: I received an Arc for Body of Sin in exchange for an honest review!

I cannot believe that I'm finished this series, it was an amazing ride. This was a crazy journey with lovable characters that are all unique and strong in their own way. I will miss reading about the characters and their adventures, but at the same time I am so glad to have experienced this. Reading this book was both exciting and different. I was surprised, angry and happy for all of the characters throughout the

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.

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
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

Favorite Lines: “Then he dragged himself onto the golden back of the beetle and hung there as he went forth into day, carrying pain and regret and confusion with him. But his heart, he left behind in the darkness of death’s night.” (p. 343-344, egalley)

Part of the Eve Silver’s Otherkin series, Body of Sin can be read as a stand alone. I know because I haven’t read any of the other books in the series. While it was distracting and confusing at times, I was able to read Body of Sin as a stand

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 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!
Gwen (The Gwendolyn Reading Method)
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.

ARC - Spoiler-free review

A fantastic end to a unique and very absorbing series.
I enjoyed this book above all the others because it combined the events of all the other books - culminating in an ending that was just as it should be - all wrapped up in a neat little bow!
As well as telling the story of arguably the most important couple of characters in this series; the author also concludes the plot thread that has spanned all five books - that being the murder of Lokan Krayl and his subsequent

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

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.

Body of Sin

Eve Silver finishes out her Sin series with Lokan's story. After reading Sins of the Flesh (the 3rd book), I was really looking forward to the conclusion of the series. Finally, Lokan's soul and body are reunited, his murderer revealed. I'm thinking there's going to be some serious sh*t going down now that Lokan's back. Except, we find out pretty quickly, he's not really back. Not yet, anyway.

This is the final book in the Sin series and I think that I deliberately left this one so long to read because I couldn't bear for it to be all over...
I was right on this count because now it's over, I can't bear it! I need more!

I received this book for free from the author for an honest review.

The last book in the series revolves around the one brother that we haven't seen much. Lokan Krayl.

We find out in the third book that he was murdered. As to who murdered him was a surprise to me. I never guessed it. In it we met who is the heroine for Lokan. Bryn Carr. I always wondered what Byrn was going to be. All of the other heroine's in the other books were all supernatural in some ways.

Even after recovering his body that he knows his brothers managed to return to him while in a null zone and along with the recovery of his memory, he still has a long and difficult path to traverse include the Twelves Gates in Osiris' territory. Now, all through this series I wondered who would be Logan's love interest. We met Bryn in the first book, who loved her and ...more

I consumed this book like Sutekh devours souls - with relish.
I didn't know how the author would reunite Lokan's body and soul then save Bryn. How could the brothers defeat their father, the God Sutekh? Would the other deities help or hinder? Who knew that Osiris had a heart?
Strong women paired with strong men is always a pleasure to read. Throw in the intrigues of Egyptian Gods and all their machinations and you get a well told, exciting tale.

Out of all the books in this series to date, I found this by far the most emotional, suspenseful, and heartbreaking -
I was completely immersed in Lokan's journey
At times silently pleading someone would grant him mercy, that he would find his way -without losing anything else or suffering anymore more than he already had.
I cried - I laughed - I wondered at what lurked beyond the next gate.

Well, I read this series far too fast and now I've reached the last one. I loved the whole series and this book was no exception.

I have to say, I felt that this book wasn't quite as good as the last one. The problem was that there was so much to be resolved here (and it was resolved), but it perhaps didn't leave quite as much time to explore Lokan and Bryn's relationship. I would have liked them to get a little more attention.

Still, the story wrapped up well. I have to admit, I could see where

I enjoyed the characters. The pace is fast moving and there is a significant story in addition to the romance between the main characters. The romance between the main characters is complete within this book but the story arc continues across the series and you should NOT start with this book.

The mark of a great series for me is twofold: what is the level of devastation that the series is finished, and how badly do I want to start re-reading it? I can't wait to relive every moment! The Sin Series Book 5, Body of Sin, is the most powerful yet. Eve Silver's ability to weave multiple storylines, delve into mythology, and tug at my heart strings, was award worthy. I actually paused, exclaimed out loud, and re-read a specific passage! An amazing culmination of an amazing series.

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.
