Everyone has secrets. I had no idea mine would lead me into shadow. Dez has found the place where she belongs. With the otherkin. With Caleb. Or so she thought. As the barriers between our world and Othersphere fall, a wall rises between Dez and Caleb, leaving her fiercest enemy her only friend.

And maybe something more.

Now Dez must make a devastating choice: keep the love of her life, or save the otherkin from annihilation.
Othermoon is the second book of the Otherkin trilogy. Dez, the main protagonist, is a shapeshifter. In here, the characters shift into different animals, depending on what group they belong to. One of the major reasons I love this series is because I'm a huge fan of animals, and it's always interesting to read about them in detail. Othermoon starts off exactly where where Otherkin stops. The best thing is that Nina Berry does remind us about what happened in Othermoon, and that's definitely a bonus for people who have a short term memory, like me. The tribunal break into each of the other kin's houses, and take a piece of object. Wanting to figure out why that is. the other kin decide to meet. That's where we get to reunite with the other amazing other kin; London, November, Siku, and Arnaldo. Let's not forget the objurers; Caleb, and his sister, Amaris.
Another thing I really love about this trilogy are the characters! It's not only concentrated in one or two, but the whole group. In this book, we did get to learn more about Arnaldo's family, and Siku, November, and even London. What's also very interesting, was Lazar. The bad boy from the Tribunal. Many shocking things happen, and we also learn so many things about Lazar, that I kind of prefer him more to Caleb now. *sorry* The action in this book is kick butt. 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. As usual, the writing style is great, Nina berry always making us want to read more and never wanting to put the book down.
Overall, I really did enjoy Otherkin. The characters were absolutely great to read about, there was a new twist to the romance that made it 10x exciting, and the action was totally awesome! I definitely cannot wait to read the third, and final book in the trilogy. For now, I'm most excited to see about where the romance will be headed, because the cliffhanger is killing me. I really do recommend this trilogy to all paranormal readers out there!


  1. Cliffhanger? *cringe* That aside, I absolutely LOVE paranormal books :) Hopefully I'll get to read this soon! Awesome review Farah<3

  2. Not sure about the whole cliffhanger, I think I have had all of those I can take for a while. But this series sounds really good, and I think I would like it. I can over look the cliffhanger. :) Great review.

  3. These books sound good. Maybe when I get some time I will try to fit them in. Great review!!

  4. I'm not really into shapeshifter themed books but I've heard quite a lot of this series. I'm glad though that you enjoyed this and didn't become a filler book for you. Great review, Farah! :)

  5. Another cliffhanger? *dies* I swear YA books are going to give me an ulcer from all the stress of the cliffhanger endings! The romance in this one sounds awesome though, I know that will be the part of the story I'm most interested in as well. Thanks for the recommendation Farah!

  6. I haven't had the chance to read Otherkin, but I love shifter books :) Awesome review! So glad you enjoyed it. I might seriously need to check this series out!

  8. Looks like that 'snack' whilst reading done you good! ;) This sounds like an amazing book! I've seen this around, and I remember you were saying it was really good! I love when you have a great set of characters in a trilogy. And a cliffhanger... they are so annoying when you have to wait a long time for the next book! Lovely Review, Farah. :)

  9. It's awesome to learn that we are going to meet the other kin. I'm curious to find out more about Dez, Caleb and Lazar. I enjoyed reading your review. Thank you, Farah!

  10. I can't wait to read this one! I really enjoyed Otherkin and I'm so glad to hear this one has more focus on the group. AND OH MY GOSH...I'M DYING TO KNOW WHY YOU PICK LAZAR!!!! Caleb is perfect and I love him, but your admission has me very curious! Can't wait to see how things turn out! Glad you enjoyed this!

    Fantastic review, Farah!
