Book Two of the Outcast series. Keri Arthur continues the story right after the events of the first book, a couple of weeks give or take. Once again Keri Arthur has entertained and keep me on the edge of my seat. I love this post apocalyptic paranormal world. A world first divided by a shifter/human/vampire war, then nearly destroyed by the bombs the shifters dropped to end the war. But the bombs did something to the fabric of the universe and now deadly rifts appear and suck you in. Most people don't survive but the ones that do come back different. I do recommend reading the first book in the series because events happen in The City of Light that are mentioned but not explained in this book that pertain to what's going to happen.
When the first book ended Tiger and her ghosts….(No spoilers just in case you haven't read the first book) and although she told Nuri and Jonas that she wouldn't help them anymore she gone off on her own to continue the search. But to find out what she needs she had to accept help from Nuri and Jonas, especially since the bad guys know who she is and where to find her they just can't get to her but that doesn't stop them from trying.
Jonas and Tiger have been fighting the attraction they feel for each other. They should hate each other; him a shifter the race that mercilessly killed her kind, and she a déchet a genetically created blend of shifter human and vampire to seduce and kill shifters in the war. Jonas final admits that he judged Tiger harshly and is willing to see where this attraction will take them; Tiger just had to admit that's what she wants too. Tiger uses the connections Nuri has to get inside of Winter Halo the company that has control of false rifts and using them to kidnap children. They are also trying to control the vampires and the wraiths that come out of the rifts and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Overall, I can't believe how good this book is. One thing….Damn you cliffhanger!
