Everyone has secrets. I had no idea mine would lead me into shadow. Dez has found the place where she belongs. With the otherkin. With Caleb. Or so she thought. As the barriers between our world and Othersphere fall, a wall rises between Dez and Caleb, leaving her fiercest enemy her only friend. And maybe something more. Now Dez must make a devastating choice: keep the love of her life, or save the otherkin from annihilation. "Be prepared to lose some sleep. Otherkin is full of non-stop action and suspense, and you're not going to be able to put it down!" --Brigid Kemmerer, author of the Elemental Series

Our customer reviews

In Berry's follow up to Otherkin we are instantly thrown back into the action. The Tribunal have broken into each of the shifters homes, not to kill them, but to still their hairbrushes. Right away Dez is on alert and with the strange incidents happening with her mother, she knows that they need to assemble at the school and figure out what is going on. Dez has grown into her shifter abilities but as a result she has become even more stubborn. I have a feeling that is a natural trait with all tiger shifters and maybe that is the reason that most shifters are not fans of tigers. Dez does continue to make mistakes but in her head they are for the good of the people she loves. Her love of Caleb becomes blurred when Caleb's half-brother and Tribunal baddie, Lazar, steps back into the picture. This time Lazar wants to help the shifters. He supposedly has seen the light and wants nothing to do with his father. Instead he wants help from the shifters to escape the Tribunal but the other shifters except for his sister, Amaris who has already escaped and is helping the shifters, don't believe him and think it is a trick. I think if it wasn't for Caleb's sudden jealous streak there would not be a love triangle. Unfortunately, as with most YA books, there is one now but it doesn't deter from the main part of the storyline. I did find myself seeing Lazar as not the enemy but as a tortured soul who is truly looking for a way out from under his father's tyrannical rule. The only part that was hard for me to accept was how easy Dez trusted Lazar who previously tried to kill Dez and her family. At times the action does read a bit heavy but all in all Berry does an excellent job in keeping the action rolling page after page. With each new revelation I was riveted to the pages wondering what will happen next. (ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review)show more
