I thought I knew myself. Then I met Caleb. Dez is a good girl who does as she's told and tries not to be noticed. Then she rescues a boy from a cage, and he tells her secrets about herself. Now inside her burns a darkness that will transform her. Everything is about to change--and neither Caleb, nor the Otherkin, nor those who hunt them, are prepared for what Dez will unleash. "Be prepared to lose some sleep. Otherkin is full of non-stop action and suspense, and you're not going to be able to put it down " --Brigid Kemmerer, author of the Elemental series "Get caught up in a dangerous world of shadow magic, shifters, and secrets." --New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Estep "Berry's debut offers just the right combination of high-stakes exploits and steamy love scenes to keep readers up until the wee hours. . .ripe with issues that will resonate with readers. From body image to friendship, first love and betrayal, OTHERKIN] explores the truth that no matter who or what you are, there's no escaping the politics of high school." - Kirkus Reviews
