Read full description of the books Otherkin:THAT WAS AMAZING!! Nina Berry....welcome to my fav author list! :D
I am honestly kicking myself for not picking up Otherkin the day it was released. Truth be told, I was expecting the same shifter story with your everyday run of the mill werewolves, but this book proved to be something else entirely. I was hooked from the first page and I didn’t put it down until the very end. It was a definite page-turner. Full of action, adventure, thrill, mystery, romance and a whole lot of unique - Otherkin was definitely one of those books that will have you coming back for a re-read!
Otherkin had a very unique take on shifters and the shifter world. You don’t just get werewolves, you get rats, bears, eagles and tigers. Yep, big, beautiful, lithe cats, as is our heroine in the book. But the whole added concept of the Othersphere, which is a world to which the otherkin are connected when in shifter form, made it all the more interesting. Also shadow callers, people who can manipulate shadow from the Othersphere into taking form on Earth, was an intriguing idea, not to mention a badass super power to have! :D It was all very original, and I found this different take on shifters very enjoyable!
As far as being able to shift into animals goes, readers find that it’s not all that easy to do. All the characters in the book had their own fair share of insecurities about shifting plus having the Tribunal, a secret organization that wants to destroy all the otherkin, after them all the time, made their life more difficult. Dez is an average girl who also happens to be the only tiger shifter left in the world. At first she doesn’t understand what or who she is and fears herself. That is until she meets Caleb. Now, she knows she’s otherkin and that the reason she was a late bloomer is because her “tiger shadow” was suppressed by magic when she was a baby. Then Dez meets others like her - more shifters and begins to learn more about herself and her heritage. All making for a fantastically written story.
Dez was one kickass heroine, I had no trouble falling in love with. She goes from having a back brace to learning she can shift into a tiger and a whole other world existing alongside Earth, but despite all that, she still manages to keep headstrong and face her problems. She is a character that is easy to sympathize for. Her frustrations, anger, hurt were my own and I easily found myself cheering for her to figure out herself and the secrets of her past and finally be happy. Then we have her relationship with Caleb. Caleb was such a fun and mysterious character. I loved guessing at all his secrets and hidden powers and melted at the feelings he has for Dez. He is charming, sexy and holy clowns on crack those deep onyx eyes of his make my heart race. I loved their relationship because not only was it sweet but they gave each other support and comfort through rough times and they always had each others’ backs no matter what. It was admiring. And, Caleb’s witty humor and protective instincts when it came to Dez were easy to fall in love with, and I was rooting for them, from beginning to end, to have their happy ever after.
Otherkin turned out to be one of my favourite reads of 2012 and I didn’t want to put it down, knowing I would have to wait a long while for the next book. The plot is action-packed and will have you at the edge of your seat just waiting in anticipation for the next turn of events. And the secondary characters will draw you in with their unique personalities. They balanced out the story very nicely. Making, Otherkin a wonderful start to a new series!
Overall, Otherkin was a fabulous read and I recommend this for everyone who enjoys YA paranormal, fantasy, mystery, action, adventure and romance. This book has it all and I guarantee you will not be disappointed. In fact, you just might go crazy waiting for the next book, Othermoon, to come out! *wink*
