Publisher's Summary

The first in an all-new futuristic fantasy series from Keri Arthur - the New York Times best-selling 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, 100 years later, humans and shifters alike live in artificially lit cities designed to keep the darkness at bay....

As a dechet - a breed of humanoid supersoldiers 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 wraithlike being - an impossibility with dangerous implications for everyone on Earth. Because if the light is no longer enough to protect them, nowhere is safe....

    "Amazing new series!!"

    I am a huge Keri Arthur fan & so loved this new series. I was re listening to Riley Jensen & went on her amazon site to get reading order again & saw this book & bought it immediately! It's fantastic! I love the characters she's crafted & the universe & circumstances surrounding them. It's a tale as old as time..."who then truly is the monster?" But with a fresh SciFi twist that'll knock your socks off, & as usual great sexy fun like only Kerri argue & Lexi Blake can make real 😜

    Story
    "Once you get past the weirdness it gets good!"
    Where does City of Light rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This one started out weird for me. Post-apocalyptic world – check; Shifters – check, vampires – check; Tiger, that’s where we get weird. She is a genetically engineered déchet, or super soldier, made during the war between humans and shifters. She is the last of her kind, and has been hiding in the remains of the military bunker; she is the lone survivor. She lives in the bunker with ghosts she can talk to and treats them as family. This is where the story almost lost me. Oh, and because of the destruction from the war, there are now rifts in reality; beings from other dimensions are pouring into our world. Did I also mention Tiger is over 100 years old? Yep weird.

    I’m glad I didn’t give up in the first few chapters, as I wanted to do. I was like WTF is this? In this world vampires are raging beast driven by their blood lust; this saved the story for me. They are monsters that ravage and destroy, live in darkness, and can become darkness. No sparkly sissy’s here! This story is about Tiger; she is really a bad ass chick, yet she also has a huge heart. She’s stuck in a world where people fear and hate her kind, making it necessary to hide, and blend in, for fear of discovery.

    Arthur has set this first story up perfectly; I love Tiger for her bravery and her heart. Readers will want her happy and accepted for who she is, in this world that hates her. I can’t wait for book two. City of Light is a fast paced, thrilling story that that leaves readers wanting more. You just have to get through and absorb the initial weirdness....Sara

    "Wow! This one is good"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely recommend. Keri Arthur's best series so far. Try it, Mikey. You'll like it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Really only one choice - Tiger. She is the main character and really it is her story.


    Which character – as performed by Mia Barron – was your favorite?

    Same


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely. Plan to stay up late.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Keri Arthur and really dug Riley Jensen and the Dark Angels series, but this is the best so far. Very unusual world, interesting heroine, great bad guys. Keri is really growing into her talent.
