"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

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.Read more ›
Zoe's Review- Ever since I finished Otherkin I have been desperately waiting for Othermoon. Now that I have finally read it. I am so mad at it. The story is good and keeps getting more and more intense. Throughout the whole story all I wanted to do was yell at Caleb for being so stupid. I can not wait until the next one, although I am sort of dreading it knowing that something will have to happen with Caleb and Dez. Overall this book was good. It was full of suspense and adventure.
Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
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.Read more ›
