    Sins of the Heart is a sleek, and streamlined treat and Silver’s cocky take-no-prisoners writing makes for a decidedly slick urban fantasy steeped in edgy visuals, scorching sex, and complicated action. She’s managed to encapsulate Egyptian history, build an Underworld realm infused with supernatural elements, and weave it into the modern day. Silver’s distinctive voice of a chance meeting between two very different creatures…a soul reaper and a potential Daughter of Aset turns into something more when they are drawn back together again-on the brink of chaos.

    This time, when they are thrown together yet again, 11 years later, Roxy Tam and Dagan Krayl face a potentially dangerous alliance. Roxy who is now part of the Asetian Guard and Dagan, the son of a powerful Underworld Lord, Sutekh, are immortal enemies. But drawn together they are over the suspicious murder of another soul reaper…Dagan’s brother Lokan. And it looks as if another Underworld lord is positioning himself against Sutekh and his empire.

    Sins of the Heart is a potent read and Silver doesn’t give it up easily. Eve Silver makes you feel taut and hungry. And for a large portion of the book, there is a delicious sense of anticipation that is well edited and honed with precision. Roxy Tam is an amazing character whose strong point is not paranormal weaponry or magic tricks but a neverending sense of iron will that pumps through her veins. Silver has taken the time to really flesh out some great characters that are both intensely believable but very likeable. Enviously likeable. And the plot is fastidious and engaging and reads like a high-octane urban fantasy hepped up on serious pheromones that will intoxicate readers. I cannot wait for the next two books: Sins of the Soul (Sept 2010) and Sins of the Flesh (Oct 2010) Looking for more Alastor and I hope that Lokan comes back! Phew, heady fare!

    Dear Leah and Chas,
    This new series is smokin hot. All I want now is to get my hands on the next one and I am hoping (fingers crossed) it's Alastor (british accent-need I say more?) But Eve has left us a cliffhanger with Lokan. I suspect next book will be his (slurp).
    Also don't forget to check out Monica Burns another new paranormal voice. Assassin's Honor was amazing!
