Half human, half god, Dagan Krayl is the Underworld's most powerful soul reaper. When one of his brothers is murdered, Dagan must use every ounce of his power to hunt down those responsible for his brutal death. But he must move swiftly—and carefully—if he's to have any chance of resurrecting his brother.
Yet that resurrection could wreak havoc on the mortal world. As an Otherkin, Roxy Tam has sworn to protect the human race, and it's her mission to stop Dagan. But when she sees him face-to-face, she realizes that she has seen him once before—a meeting that changed her life forever.
Neither Dagan nor Roxy expect to join forces for the sake of mankind. Or to have their loyalties tested as they struggle against the potent desire that threatens to consume them both….
One of the major things that drew me into this book was the Egyptian and Greek mythology Eve Silver incorporated into this novel. I love mythology and this story line really appealed to me. The story focuses around two characters, Roxy and Dagan. Roxy's character is surrounded in mystery. Eve Silver let's us know Roxy's had a troubled and unhappy past. She's rough around the edges but not unlikeable. I love the way that Eve Silver slowly unraveled her story. Dagan is a soul-reaper. He goes around collecting evil souls for his darling dad's dinner. He's less of a mystery than Roxy but he's still an interesting character. Dagan and Roxy are enemies by trade. I think that's what makes their attraction to each other steamy. They must put aside their differences to try and track down a killer and protect a little girl. Eve Silver wove a very compelling tale full of action, adventure, mystery and romance. She leaves you breathless and wanting more. The is the first book in the Otherkin trilogy. The next two books are Sins of the Soul and Sins of the Flesh.
