Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-This sequel to Otherkin (Kensington, 2012) opens with Desdemona living with her family in their new home near Las Vegas. The pace quickly picks up as tiger shape-shifter Dez and her fellow shifters meet up to rescue one of their classmates from his abusive father. Simultaneously, Dez is being pursued by her boyfriend's evil brother, who wants her help with escaping from and rebelling against the Tribunal. The teens all head back to school for more training, undergoing team-building exercises, all while Dez hides the truth from her friends. Trust issues come to the surface and friendships are tested when the students are faced with their biggest challenge yet-they discover that the Tribunal is building a particle accelerator that can ultimately take away their shifting powers. It will be even more difficult for Dez to face the Tribunal when she and Caleb break up. Readers might become annoyed with the constant focus on Dez, who is always the leader and the one with secret powers to solve the situation, making all the other characters seem flat. The esoteric vocabulary of the world Berry has created, combined with the random, futuristic science-experiment plot and the unnatural dialogue, might lose readers as well. That said, fans of the first book will be clamoring for this title and will be eager to get their paws on the final book in the trilogy. Plus, tiger fans will enjoy going "beyond the story" at the end of the novel and learning some facts and proverbs about the great cat.-Lindsay Klemas, JM Rapport School for Career Development, Bronx, NYα(c) Copyright 2013.

Review

"Plenty to enjoy in the action-packed sequel... Fans of the series and new readers alike will find themselves anxiously turning pages... On the surface, this appears to be a novel meant to satisfy ravenous paranormal-fantasy fans looking for an exciting read with a hearty order of romance on the side. While it certainly fills the bill, there's depth here that shouldn't be overlooked. Dez wrestles with real-life issues about identity and belonging, about trust and loyalty, and about friendship and love that will resonate with teen readers across genres." - Kirkus Reviews

"Berry's second Otherkin novel is suspenseful and action packed. Dez is a strong, smart protagonist whom readers will root for, as she tries to stay true to herself. There are layers of deeper meaning here, hidden amidst an entertaining shapeshifter YA. " - RT Book Reviews, 4.5 stars

Dez will have to decide between standing up for what is right or losing Caleb for good.
A Book Obsession..
Though I do have to admit, sometimes it was a bit too detailed, that I had to skim through it and get to the exciting part.

The characters continued to be interesting and well written with realistic personalities.

Othermoon picks up close on the heels of its predecessor, Otherkin. Not much has changed. Dez and her shifter friends are still learning and testing the limits of their shadow abilities, Caleb is still hot and sexy, the shifter Council still bickers, and the evil Guild is even more determined to wipe the otherkin out of existence. This time around, the Guild has changed tactics. Instead of directly attacking the shifters, the Guild is sneaking into homes and stealing DNA samples. No one knows why, but everyone agrees it can't be for anything good. And the one person who offers to provide answers is the last person they can trust.

There is a lot to like about this series. It's got action, romance, a diverse cast of characters, and Berry's concept, her shifter origin story, is pretty darn unique. But there are flaws too, and most of the complaints I have revolve around Dez herself. She suffers from a bad case of Meddling Kid Syndrome, and while I respect her confidence and willingness to do what she believes is right, she can be annoyingly arrogant and self-righteous at times. She is especially so in Othermoon, too quick to get on her soapbox and tell others what to do or how to feel. It doesn't matter if she's proven right in the end (about certain things). Her holier-than-thou attitude puts me off and makes it very hard for me to root for her. That's not to say I don't; it's just not as easy as it should be.

The romance started in Otherkin turns into a love triangle, of sorts, in Othermoon. I actually like how it developed, which is really saying something considering I generally hate love triangles on principle.

In 'Othermoon', Dez is at it again with new obstacles to face and more mysteries she must solve about herself and her new world. This was a solid sequel in a wonderful YA fantasy series that keeps the reader coming back for more. The characters continued to be interesting and well written with realistic personalities. Dez's character continues to grow and change throughout this book, and I really enjoyed watching her coming into her power and place with the Otherkin. There's definitely more romance in this book than the first, but I feel that it only added to the story and made things more interesting - it didn't detract from the main plot of the book at all, but intertwined with it. I continued to enjoy reading as much as I could about the Otherkin and their world. The author writes about them with such vivid descriptions and detailed histories that I get completely sucked into the story from the start. The plot for this book was definitely as interesting as the first, but contained more action and romance - which definitely kept me reading as fast as I could to see what was going to happen. The pace was fast but not rushed, and the writing was again incredibly well done. Very highly recommended for fans of shifter series and fans of YA fantasy/paranormal fiction.

Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Hey guys! The first book in this series was good. I liked it, good characters, loved Caleb. Overall it wasn't AMAZING but solid.

The second book on the other hand....I really wanted to hurt Dez. I get it, she's going through some really hard times and learning all these knew things about herself but, GOD SHE WAS AWFUL.

*SPOILERS

I didn't find her sudden one eighty believable at all. She was all over Caleb one second and then completely betraying him the next. I don't care if Lazar is changing and that he wants to help. Caleb doesn't like him, doesn't trust, because oh yeah LAZAR KILLED CALEB'S MOM. So if I was Caleb, I would pissed at Dez too. Lazar can learn to be a better person, just not around someone he had already hurt so many times. The irony is that Dez feels betrayed at the end. She's so happy that AT LEAST LAZAR DIDN'T LEAVE HER. Are you kidding? I would leave you too if you were cuddling up to my mom's murderer. Caleb left you because you weren't at all the person he fell in love with! It was just weird. Plus the plot seemed really forced or something. I ended skimming the whole second half of the book. I expected so much more from Nina. And assuming there will be a continuation to the series, well this made me not want to read it!

I was disappointed. COME ON DEZ!!!

You know when you have those moments when you're like "I'm going to rate this book -5,000,000 because it just BROKE MY HEART" and then you realize "CRAPCRAPCRAP IT WAS SUPPOSED TO!"...anybody?

Well, that's what happened to me with this book, at any rate.

When I reviewed Otherkin, the first book in this series, I can still remember the awesome feeling of how amazingly surprised I was with the book. I'll be the first to say that I'm a bit of a jaded reader, and I have a LOT of cliché pet peeves that instantly make me dislike a book unless they're done VERY VERY WELL. One of those is a boarding school setting. But Berry brought that in for Otherkin and I LOVED IT. I couldn't believe it myself. So needless to say I had high expectations for Othermoon as well, and I basically wasn't disappointed.

Othermoon picks up basically right where Otherkin left off. Dez and her mom and dad are moving away from their home to flee the Tribunal. The night before they move, Lazar breaks in but doesn't seem to steal anything, and then Dez's mom channels this weird thing from the Otherworld that claims to be Dez's birth mother. All this weirdness ensues, which includes stealing one friend back from his abusive father and causing all sorts of problems.

And then Dez and all her friends end up back at a new school setting.

Honestly, I was hoping for a little bit broader setting with this book. The school was great last time, but I'm always looking for books to expand from this horizon. Granted, the actual school-ness of the setting never overwhelmed the book at all, but still. Personal preference.

I think my real issue with the beginning of the book was Caleb and Dez. Talk about moving fast.
