As soon as I saw the cover for Otherkin I had to read it - just take one look at that image and tell me it doesn't make you want to pick up the book! I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover but I do it time and time again and luckily in this case my instincts were right. Nina Berry has created an interesting world with different kinds of shapeshifters, a world where two realities are layered on top of each other and the Otherkin are able to access the layer that most people can't see and use the shadow they find there to effect our world. I do still have some questions about exactly how the Othersphere works but I'm looking forward to learning more as the series continues.
The different shifters come from five different families - cats, wolves, bears, birds of prey and rats. All of the other species have died out and there are all sorts of conflicts between the remaining clans. Each group has very specific characteristics that don't always allow them to live in harmony together.Read more ›
I really liked how there was action. There was also lots of plot twists that made you wonder and be confused in a good way. I would recommend Otherkin to anyone who like stories with shapeshifting, and plot twists.
Zoe's Review- This book was amazing. There was never a dull moment. There is a romance, but not the bad kind where that is the only thing that is in it.There is always something interesting happening in the book, whether it is training or even battle. I couldn’t put it down. The story is great and it has a lot of twists and turns. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in shape shifting.
This story literally just jumps right into things. Within the first two pages, Dez shifts for the very first time. Similar to Of Poseidon by Anna Banks, you hop right into the action from page one, no back-story to the character(s). While I know that some readers like to immediately get down to business, I am a reader that likes to know a little about the characters so that I can feel for them. Because I literally knew nothing about Dez besides the fact that she believed herself to be a good girl within the first two pages, I felt very removed from her character through the remainder of the book. I often found my eyebrows knitting together when the tiger in her awakened dangerous thoughts about killing or maiming people. Even more surprising, such a good girl accepted this dark world so easily. But then I realized that this was a reoccurring theme throughout the novel. It seems like every time something should have freaked a character out, they just accepted it and moved on, no questions asked. It was slightly frustrating because it seemed so unrealistic.
The romance in the novel seemed incredibly forced as well. Unfortunately, I have to diagnose OTHERKIN with an extensive case of insta-love. Caleb--one of the few normal names!Read more ›
When Dez awakens, she discovers that she is back in human form and is in a cage with silver bars. A young man in a neighboring cage talks with her but his conversation is more baffling than enlightening as he assumes she knows all about being a shapeshifter. She learns that she has been captured by the Tribunal - a secret organization which has taken on the task of destroying all the otherkin. Dez learns that her fellow prisoner Caleb is able to manipulate shadow. The two of them manage to escape but know that the Tribunal will soon be on their trail.
Caleb knows of a potential safe place that the two of them can go. He knows of a secret school run by another shadow caller named Morfael. The two of them manage to find the school but then have to pass Morfael's test and be accepted by the local council made up of representatives of the remaining shifter groups - eagles, wolves, bears, cats, and rats. Dez quickly learns that each shifter group is separate and hates the others.Read more ›
