Sins of the Heart by Eve Silver
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sins of the Heart was a wonderful book. The start of a thrilling trilogy.
We follow four brothers who are soul reapers - sons of a very powerful Dark Lord (Suketh) from the underworld. Their job is to find the darkest humans and take their hearts and dark souls for their father who thrives on them.
Sins of the Heart follows Dagan who is the eldest. As he is gathering two dark souls for his "dear old dad" he meets Roxy a 19 year old who is being held against her will. There is a strong connection between the two but he knows there is no future for them. He lets her go to live a normal life with a warning about what path not to take, which would make her his enemy - becoming a Daughter of Aset.
Of course Roxy does become an Otherkin (Daughter of Aset) as this was what her mother was and when they meet again 11 years later they are torn about their feelings. Dagan and two brothers are trying to find out who killed their youngest brother and want to bring him back from wherever he is and yet the Otherkin do not want that because of the catastrophic effect that it would have on the world (top and underworld).
Through their investigations Roxy finds out about her true heritage, the reason many want a small little girl she helped save and what her true feelings are about Dagan.
This is a great book and the ending leads you straight into the next book - since it is a trilogy. :)
