From the New York Times bestselling author of the Souls of Fire novels comes the second in the futuristic fantasy series that will make you want to keep the lights on...
When the bombs that stopped the species war tore holes in the veil between worlds, they allowed entry to the Others. Now, a hundred years later, humans and shifters alike live in artificially lit cities designed to keep the darkness at bay....
The humanoid supersoldiers known as the déchet were almost eradicated by the war. Ever since, Tiger has tried to live her life in peace in hiding. But in the wake of her discovery that Central City’s children are being kidnapped and experimented on, Tiger’s conscience won’t let her look the other way.
The key to saving them lies within the walls of a pharmaceutical company called Winter Halo. But as she learns more about the facility, Tiger’s mission is derailed by a complication: Winter Halo’s female security guards are being systematically attacked by an unknown force.
Now Tiger must summon all her gifts to stop those responsible for both atrocities—no matter the cost to herself...
This was a good read. This is the second book in the Outcast series and it picks up right where the first one left off. I do think that this is a series that needs to be read in order since it is really a continuation of the events from the first book. I absolutely loved the first book in this series, City of Light so I couldn't wait to get my hands on the next installment. It ended up being a entertaining story.
I enjoyed this one but not quite as much as the first in the series. I really had a hard time getting into this book. I am not sure if it was because it had been months since I read the first book or what but it took some time for me to really get back into Tiger's world. Things did pick up quickly for me and before I knew it I was pulled in by the excitement of the story. I seriously couldn't turn the pages fast enough. There were enough action and plot twists to really keep the story moving.
I love the characters in this series. Tiger is such an interesting and strong character. Being the last of her kind, she has learned to depend only on herself and her ghost friends. She still cares about others and is willing to risk everything to save lives. She was created with certain skills and she knows her strengths. It was just a lot of fun to watch her manipulate situations into to get the information that she needs.
I would recommend this series to fans of futuristic fantasy. I do think that readers will need to read the first book in the series to enjoy this second installment. I do wish that this book had wrapped up a little more. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in this series because I need to find out what happens next.
I received an advance reader edition of this book from Berkley Publishing Group via NetGalley.
