Review: Body of Sin by Eve Silver (The Sins series book 5)

343945525 stars


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. 

This is the final book in the Sin series and I think that I deliberately left this one so long to read because I couldn’t bear for it to be all over…
I was right on this count because now it’s over, I can’t bear it! I need more!
After a full and thorough examination of the feels I’ve accrued for this series, I’ve decided that this is my favourite book in the entire series. Instead of it being all about the romance, this book focuses mainly on the thread of story that has run throughout the series – the main conspiracy has been uncovered and now the underworld has to get its shit together once more to avoid an all out war.

Most of all, we finally get to meet Lokan! The poor guy has been dismembered for the past 4 books and has earnt his own story. Better yet, you get to find out about his past and, something I haven’t encountered in urban fantasies before, his deep connection with this young daughter. Silver doesn’t delve too deeply into this aspect, but I appreciate that she goes into it at all!
I can’t really say much about the plot of this story: if you’ve read the other four in the series (which you really should or you’ll be missing out), you deserve to work through this one yourself.
The writing is totally compelling as always and the action had me completely drawn in, this is a brilliant conclusion to the preceding books but it leaves everything open just enough that Silver could keep the series running in the future. That’s just a little glimmer of hope I can cling on to!

      It’s only 5 books and they’re all brilliant! I recommend at least giving the first one a go and taking it from there 😄 it’s the world building that got me hooked
