City of Light by Keri Arthur
My rating: 4 ½
of 5 Stars
I was really excited when I saw that Keri Arthur had a new series coming out. City of Light the first book in the Outcast Series is an exciting and imaginative futuristic tale. Tiger is the last of her kind, a déchet, a humanoid supernatural hybrid that was bred as a tool in war. The story had amazing detail and creativity. The plot was refreshing and unexpected.
I like Tiger. Unlike most déchet, she has feelings. She is a survivor. She has lived with only ghosts as company for over one hundred years. She is courageous and caring. She becomes involved in a mission to help rescue a number of children from mysterious wraith-like creatures. She does not trust the people who want her help and no matter what she cannot let them discover that she is a déchet, or her life will be over. The story had numerous unexpected twists and was very imaginative. I enjoyed the ending and cannot wait for the next book in the series.
