The first in an all-new futuristic fantasy series from Keri Arthur—the New York Times bestselling author of the Souls of Fire novels.
When the bombs that stopped the species war tore holes in the veil between this world and the next, they allowed entry to the Others—demons, wraiths, and death spirits who turned the shadows into their hunting grounds. Now, a hundred years later, humans and shifters alike live in artificially lit cities designed to keep the darkness at bay....
As a déchet—a breed of humanoid super-soldiers almost eradicated by the war—Tiger has spent her life in hiding. But when she risks her life to save a little girl on the outskirts of Central City, she discovers that the child is one of many abducted in broad daylight by a wraith-like being—an impossibility with dangerous implications for everyone on earth.
Because if the light is no longer enough to protect them, nowhere is safe...
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...
These books were just absolutely wonderful to read! I absolutely devoured them, and I just want to read more of this series! Because there has to be more! Plus in the back of the ARC, it had the insert teaser 16 pages thing, which makes me think that there's going to be a 3rd book, yeah!
This world, wow, this world! I'm pretty sure that this isn't our world with some changes because of the territories thing. So I want to know more! And we got that the war was started because humans kept pushing the shifters into smaller and smaller parcels of land. Again, I want to know!
Another thing that I would love to know more about, is the time immeditaely after the gassing and killing of everybody by Tiger in the bunker. We know it was really bad, but I want to know more about what she did-and what things were like out in the world!
The missing kids was the big mystery in this book. The why, the how, and how to find and rescue them. Which quickly becomes something bigger-wraiths and rifts and sun-resistant vampires and wraiths. Which isn't good for the population!
Loved reading these books, and with the similar endings of City of Light and Winter Halo, I really hope the 3rd book comes out soon!
