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... @goodreads
Damn it. I didn't like this one as much as the first book. I keep telling myself it was just my mood but at times I felt like I was slogging through the book.
I still loved the characters and the ghosts, so what happened? I don't know........sigh...........
The book started off with Tiger going into some crazy rift thing following a person to see who they were and then getting attacked by wraiths. Sounds awesome right? Well, I don't know. She's trying to find out who is hurting children and that is awesome. We find out a pretty good bit about that in this book. I'm hoping there will be a wrap up in the next book. Is this a trilogy or a regular series?
Anyway, Tiger and Jonas are helping each other again even though he doesn't like dechet's and that's what Tiger is, (you can read all about that in the first book or just read the blurb to this one) but they are good working together. And some stuff I wanted to happen did happen a little bit in this book. I hope it happens a lot in the next book!
Cat and Bear, the main ghosts, are in the book of course and I just love them so much. I love all of the ghosts they have in the book. But, cat and bear are the best! I mean the ghost thing is the whole reason I loved the first book and liked this one.
Tiger is working undercover at Winter Halo a bad place that they all assume are behind many evil things. Ha, that told you a lot right?
Either way, I will read the next book to see if this has a happy end game which I hope. This cover is also amazing because I love anything wintery looking. =)
