Around this time last year, I advised hardcore fans of J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series to give Larissa Ione’s Demonica series a try. Well, you should be caught up on Demonica at this point (and our reviewer Candace would remind you to start her Lords of Deliverance series, too). Now what to read?
I have you covered, dear readers. If you’ve devoured the demons and hunters within the Demonica world, you’re going to enjoy Eve Silver’s Otherkin novels. Each book in her Otherkin series — it was a trilogy, then added a penultimate fourth novel that is amazing — features one of four soul reaper brothers. These guys are the princes of the underworld, but have to do Dad’s bidding and reap souls. They can’t be killed, but somehow one of the brothers has gone missing. They’re out to find him and the parties responsible. Amid the journey, they meet their matches in each book. And these destined mates just happen to be out to kill them. Falling in love with the other side isn’t easy for either part.
All the women in the Otherkin series are strong. They won’t be pushed around, and when it comes down to it they do what is right. That means saving lives and accepting maybe a soul reaper can do the same.
Stunning world-building, particularly in Body of Sin.
Heroes worthy of serious swooning.
Heroines you want to be friends with.
…well, you can see why I’d say Demonica fans will adore Eve Silver’s paranormal romance series. The Otherkin series starts with Sins of the Heart.
