Bestseller Arthur continues the paranormal near-future adventures of humanoid supersoldier Tiger with this enjoyable sequel to City of Light. Since the end of the apocalyptic war between humans and paranormal invaders—shifters, vampires, demons, wraiths—Tiger has been trying to lie low among the survivors at Central City. But when someone starts kidnapping children, she can’t ignore it. Pharmaceuticals company Winter Halo seems to be involved in the crime, and now Tiger is teaming up with ranger Jonas to infiltrate the company and find out what’s really going on. Before long, they’re dealing with ghosts, vampires, deadly rifts in space-time, and a secretive research project that could radically reshape the world. Arthur’s sequel delivers solid helpings of danger and suspense, seasoned with romance. Fans of her Dark Angels and Souls of Fire paranormal series will enjoy this straightforward fantasy thriller.
