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...
Winter Halo by Keri Arthur is a knock your socks off thrill ride. Book #2 of the Outcast series starts off shortly after book ones conclusion, with Tiger having been betrayed by her allies. This heroine goes from the frying pan into the fire and Central City goes nuclear around her as she ramps up her hunt for the remaining missing children. The wraith crazy triumvirate is down to two, but two are just as deadly as three; as light imperious vampires could be the end of humanity. Arthur’s world is part myth, folklore, purely great world building and a dash of baddies that Lovecraft would be proud of.
In book one Arthur had me on the edge of my seat, but in this book she threw me off a cliff.
