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 ge..Show More »netically 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
