Body of Sin
"Dark, intense, passionate…this tale of pain and redemption brilliantly resolves a seemingly unsolvable dilemma…"—Library Journal, starred review
Once the favorite son of the Lord of the Underworld, Lokan Krayl held enviable privileges and powers. Powers that led to a devastating betrayal—murder. Resurrected by his immortal brothers, Lokan is still trapped in purgatory. He has no way to contact his family. He has no answers. In order to find the truth about his death and who killed him, he must escape his prison. And there’s only one way out: through the twelve gates of his eternal enemy, Osiris.
But Lokan has help. Bryn Carr, his unwanted guide, the woman who duped him once before. She’s his last hope. Does Lokan dare to place his fate—and that of the mortal and immortal worlds—in the hands of the one woman he can never trust?
"Silver’s use of Egyptian mythology is a refreshing change of pace in the genre and adds plenty of creepy atmosphere…" —Publishers Weekly
Silver continues her Otherkin series (Sins of the Flesh; Sins of the Soul) with this mythology-heavy paranormal romance. Soul reaper Lokan Krayl was brutally murdered by his father, Sutekh (aka Set), an Underworld god. Lokan's brothers manage to reunite his soul with his body, giving him a second chance at life if he can pass a series of tests. To Lokan's surprise, his guide through the Underworld turns out to be Bryn Carr, the mother of his daughter. Lokan and Bryn had hidden their supernatural abilities from each other, but now they are forced to work together, since Lokan is the only one who can protect their daughter from Sutekh. Silver's use of Egyptian mythology is a refreshing change of pace in the genre and adds plenty of creepy atmosphere, but the slow-moving plot makes the romance feel short-changed, despite the use of flashbacks to fill in the gaps.
