Othersphere: Blog Tour and Book Review

Today I'm very excited to be a part of the Nerd Blast Othersphere by Nina Berry!

So, without further adieu, I give you OTHERSPHERE as well as my review!

K-Teen
December 31st 2013
Young Adult / Paranormal / Fantasy







Dez thought she knew who her mother was, who she was. Thought she had friends, a boy who loved her, and a school where she finally fit in.

But across the veil linking our world and the next lurks a monster which can annihilate. . .or liberate her. Now she must confront it there with help from one boy who loves her and one who can't stand the sight of her.

Dez thought she understood her tiger form, her deepest self. But in this treacherous place, she'll have to choose between the two halves of her soul--and determine which world survives.

Othersphere is the third and final installment in Nina Berry's acclaimed young adult Otherkin series, which blends romance, fantasy, and action in a powerful story of friendship and self-acceptance.

"Filled with suspense, action, friendship, and love, this book will have you on the edge of your seat until the end, when you'll cry out, 'I need more!'" - ParanormalReads.com review of Otherkin, book 1.
At last the series is finished. Sigh. There was sufficient hype about the first book that I went to lengths to procure a copy. I wasn't disappointed as Caleb and Dez made for some stellar adventures and high emotional moments. But I felt the second book was a bit of a let down. I wanted nothing more than to grab Caleb and shake what little brains he had right out. He was being such a dork that I didn't want him to get another chance at a happy ending. So this is the state of mind I entered Othersphere.

First thing that hit me was a load of confusion. In the small gap of time between the end of Othermoon and the beginning of Othersphere I felt Dez had made a very large questionable choice. It really made me upset with her and left me feeling less than kindly to her for the remainder of the book. Dez really gets a bit unmoored.

But I pressed on and found that this book really became fantastical. Dinosaurs, mermaids, and other odd creatures fill the magical othersphere. The othersphere is a rough place to be. I can't imagine why anyone would want to live there. I also felt that the whole extinction of the worlds was a bit overblown. Maybe that is because I feel some creatures really have gone extinct by natural selection and not interference of mankind. For instance, it was just meant to be that dinosaurs no longer roam the earth. So I didn't really buy the need to collect all these lost species and save them. Natural selection should work in both worlds.

Aside from all that I enjoyed getting to the end of the story for Dez. It was nice to watch her come back into herself. To finally shake off all the uncertainty and questions. She decided who she is and where she wants to go with her life. So the ending was a very nice finish to the series. My only gripe is that I spent so much time being miffed at the characters that I wasn't as invested in a happy outcome for them. So the ending didn't have the emotional bang it could have. But I am glad I read the whole series.
