Book Review: Body of Sin

 


The ultimate fall from grace...
 
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, the woman who duped him once before, is his beautiful yet unwanted guide. She’s been sent by his brothers to aid him. She’s his last hope. Lokan must place his fate—and that of the mortal and immortal worlds—in the hands of the one woman he can never trust.

BODY OF SIN is one book that I have been waiting for a chance to read.   After having met Lokan thru the memories of the three brothers, I could hardly wait to meet the man himself.  And after having done so, I am more then satisfied.  Not only do you get to meet Lokan but you also get a chance to delve into his personal life including his daughter Dana.

Now onto the more technical details.  The pacing was slower then the rest of the series but not in a bad way.  Bryn seems to inject a calmness that carries over into the entire story.  There is suspense but it is a finely drawn thread that pushes you to turn the page.  Oh and this is a big one for me.  The content was consistence throughout the entire series.

I would say that BODY OF SIN is an extremely satisfying conclusion to an excellent series but I am not sure if this is the end.  And surprisingly enough, I would be happy either way though I do hope that we get to meet more of the characters in this rich world.  Perhaps a series from the viewpoint of another god.

I have had the opportunity to read this entire series and have been nothing but pleased.  If you haven't had the chance to explore this world I highly recommend doing so.

I did receive this book from NetGallery in exchange for the review.  No money exchanged hands and all opinions are my own.
