Sins of the Flesh by Eve Silver
Torn between lust and loyalty…
The blood of the Underworld lord of evil runs through soul reaper Malthus Krayl’s veins. Raised to fight for survival and to kill for victory, he can destroy anyone who poses a threat. As he searches for the one responsible for his brother’s murder, he refuses to succumb to any distraction… until his sworn enemy crosses his path and tempts him beyond all reason.
Calliope Kane, a Daughter of Aset, has a personal hatred for soul reapers. Their savage attack against her family still haunts her. But only Malthus can help her find the traitors of her kind, and only she can help him hunt the source of betrayal amongst the reapers. As they unite, the danger grows closer…and the passion between them ignites…
Wow! This book has it all. Great characters, page turning suspense and mind-blowing sex. Oh and did I mention the great characters? I have to admit that I have always been partial to Malthus 'Mal' Krayl. It is pirate of the family, the adrenalin junkie, who have sworn off love. Not off woman of course as he has a different partner every night but he refuses to risk his heart again. Then he meets Calliope 'Callie' who at their first meeting feeds off of him, pins him to a wall and leaves him on fire. Poor Mal never stood a chance.
Ms. Silver did an excellent job with SINS OF THE FLESH. Each book does concentrate on a brother finding a mate and she does a great job with this. However in SINS OF THE FLESH, she also incorporates an element of tension that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat. The story arc also proceeds along nicely and I have to admit that the conclusion of the book was a real shocker.
I do recommend SINS OF THE FLESH to anyone with a fondness of piratical men, kick ass heroines with a fondness for pointy weapons and the paranormal. This book is sure to please.
I rate it a 3.75.
