Outcast, Book 2
Synopsis: 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…
Review: If you know me, you know that I’m a big fan of everything that Keri Arthur writes. Well, I agree that all the novels are not equal but I find that she is an extraordinary author in all the genres she tries. Moreover I had a great time with the first volume of her Outcast series and I was eager to discover this second novel to learn more about Tiger and Jonas. It must be said that we can only wait for the resolution of several events.
We find our dear heroine determined more than ever to find the kidnapped children and to save them whatever she has to do for that. But while she did not want any connection with Jonas and those of Chaos, she soon realizes that it would not be possible. She will have to put her skills to test by infiltrating the enemy camp to try to understand where the children are held as quickly as possible. But in this context, she will also realize that the guards of the company she infiltrated are attacked in a rather terrible way and there too, Tiger is determined to understand what is happening…. Still, she certainly did not expect to discover all these hidden truths that will force her to act, even though the danger is high. I’m not going to say much more but the action is constant, as well as the suspense and I was impatient to see the end of the story.
I really enjoyed seeing Jonas and learning more about him as well as about Nuri and the other characters. I’m sure you’re wondering about Jonas and Tiger, about their attraction and rejection and yes !!!! We have new answers!
Yes it was a very good new volume full of twists but once again, even if the plot advances, there is still much to see. I’m really looking forward to reading more as always!
