My Rating:  


Dagan Krayl, the Underworld's most powerful soul reaper, is the demigod son of the evil god Sutekh. He's on a mission to find his murdered brother's remains and resurrect him, but resurrection means that the secrets carried into death would be released and, with them, a war that could end gods and mankind alike.

Roxy Tam is searching for the same thing, but for completely different reasons. She means to make certain that the remains don’t fall into Sutekh’s hands, and that the soul reapers do not reanimate their fallen comrade. As a Daughter of Aset, Roxy is tasked with the protection of the human race, and if that means thwarting an all powerful soul reaper and making certain his dead brother stays dead, so be it. But when Roxy sees Dagan face-to-face, she realizes that she has met him once before—a meeting that changed her life forever.

Neither Dagan nor Roxy expects to join forces for the sake of mankind. Or to have their loyalties tested as they struggle against treachery, betrayal and the potent desire that threatens to consume them both.

Sins of the Heart kicks off an awesome series about soul reapers, demigods, and gods. Roxy and Dagan had a back-and-forth thing that had me reeling and rooting for them at the same time.    

While I wasn't drawn into the story immediately, I eventually did get into it and think I might have been preoccupied. I'm not sure why I wasn't into it immediately - the beginning might have moved a little slowly for me. Some scenes were a bit lengthy.  

As it went on, I ended up liking it more. The characters are interesting, especially Roxy and Dagan. They are HOT together! Their love is forbidden, which just makes them even hotter and fun to read about. They also have opposite goals which was what brought them into orbit in the first place, and that makes their situation even more complicated. I thought it was genius to have their goals pitted against one another to up the ante.  

After finishing Sins of the Heart, I immediately bought Sins of the Daughter and am looking forward to reading the rest of this series! Plus, Eve Silver has written other series I'm ready to dive into.
