Title: Othersphere (#3)
Author: Nina Berry
Release Date: December 31st, 2013
Stars: 4

"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."
RELATED: Otherkin // Othermoon 

Othersphere picks up a little after the last book left off. Caleb is off doing his own thing, while the rest of the gang is at their school. Dez is trying to forget the boy who captured her heart and move on, a new romance could be just the thing. Only peace is unlikely when the Tribunal comes a calling. Now a danger from the Othersphere threatens more than just their safety. Dez and company must put aside all drama and band together before everything changes for worse.

Othersphere had everything I loved about the other two books. Tension, loveable characters, fascinating plot, and a whole heap of danger. Book three continued the well-written story we started way back in book one and brought us to a great conclusion. It really couldn't have ended any other way.

I must say I will miss Dez and co. This is one great cast of characters that really complement each other well. Their strengths and weaknesses are all woven together that you have to believe that together they can defeat anything. Even as they grow and change, they are flexible, and their group dynamic reflects that. This time around certain characters are aware of certain flaws they have that have caused some major tension in the previous books. *cough* Dez *cough* But it's not one of those, 'I know, but don't care' situations. She actively works to minimize damage her secrets have cause. That is one of the things I like most about this series, you get to witness these characters evolving.

I won't get into details because I don't wish to give spoilers, but I really liked the concept of the Othersphere. We get hints and teasers from the previous books, but nothing is held back this time around. We get to see first hand this complex world that skims ours. You can definitely see the author's love of nature in this complex place.

With the end of a series, it's always hard to let go. But this one gets a permanent place on my shelves. I am looking forward to reading the next story by this great author.

"Killing is easy. Forgiveness is hard." (Dez)
"Not everyone deserves to be forgiven." (Caleb)
"You don't forgive them because they deserve it. You forgive them because you deserve to live free of anger." (Dez)
