Review of Sins of the Soul by Eve Silver
To Be Released: September 1, 2010
5 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: “Alastor Krayl’s world shattered when he learned that his father was the Underworld god of chaos and evil. All that saved him from self-destruction were his newfound brothers and the bond they shared as soul reapers. So when one of his brothers is murdered, vengeance becomes Alastor’s obsession. And the enigmatic Naphré Kurata, a witness—or is she the killer?—has the answers he seeks.
A reluctant Underworld enforcer, Naphré trusts no one, especially not a seductive soul reaper who makes her burn with lust. Torn between duty and desire, she fights to keep her secrets safe from Alastor, even as she longs to surrender.”
I really enjoyed Sins of the Soul, the second book in a series, the first being Sins of the Heart. Sins of the Soul was a very enthralling read as far as how we as readers get to continue to unravel the mysteries of these whacky soul reapers. I love how Eve Silver writes not just in the point of view of the main characters of this book but also from main characters from Sins of the Heart. As readers we get a continued storyline and different perspectives on each mystery of each character.
What I really loved about Sins of the Soul was Naphre and Alastor and their whole dynamic. It was interesting to see these two characters fall for each other because they act the same. They are the same yet they are different but in such subtle ways that it is almost impossible to see. I thought the continued story which started out with Sins of the Heart then onto Sins of the Soul (this book) was a really great transition. We get to experience a different soul reaper brother in this book as well as another Otherkin who is in almost the same position as Roxy.
I am really looking forward to buying Sins of the Heart as well as Sins of the Soul when they come out. I am also really hoping to read the next installment of this series when it becomes available because, what can I say? This series is deeply seductive, mysterious, enthralling, and incredibly addicting.
