Othermoon by Nina Berry Book Review

Othermoon (Otherkin, #2)
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. 
Now Dez must make a devastating choice: keep the love of her life, or save the otherkin from annihilation.

Otherkin was such an awesome, action packed book, so I was extremely excited to read Othermoon. Unfortunately, I felt it didn’t quite live up to it’s predecessor.  

The writing in Othermoon was still great, but I didn’t think the plot or the romance were. First off, I feel most of the book was build up to the action that occured at the very end of the book. I got bored pretty easily and put the book down a few times before I finished it. I did really liked the final, action-packed scene, although I wish that more action could have occurred before than.

Another thing that I didn’t like in Othermoon was the romance. Everything I loved about Caleb in Otherkin seemed to disappear. He was very moody, seemed to have no trust in Dez and it was so hard for me to like him. However, Lazear comes back into the book, and I definitely got to understand him a lot better. Their were some other relationships in Othermoon, but I didn’t particularly like any of them.

Lastly, while the ending scene was one of the best scenes in the book, I really wish that something that happened at the end didn’t. I didn’t think it was necessary to the book and I’m so upset that it happened.

I’m still curious to see where the series goes, and I'm hoping the next book will be better. I didn’t enjoy this novel that much, but I’d still highly recommend the first book in the series. I’d give Othermoon 2 out of 5 flowers.

* Thank you so much to Kensington Teen for sending me  a copy of Othermoon to read and review! :)


  1. I've been wanting to check the first book in the series for so long. I'm glad you enjoyed that one. I really hate when the romance isn't up to par or the action, because I love action packed books! Awesome review :)

  2. OH MY GOSH!! When you were talking about this with me on the e-mail and said it wasn't as good, I didn't expect it to be that disappointing. D: I seriously LOVED Otherkin as well. But it's sad to hear about the missing action and the non-existance romance. I really like Dez and Caleb, and I was definitely looking forward to seeing more of them, now i guess I can't. I'm still debating if I should pick it up...I don't know, maybe sometime in the future. *sigh*

    Sorry it turned out this way. I know how much you liked the first one too. Hopefully future books are better. :D
