FORMAT: EBOOK, PAPERBACK
New York Times bestselling author Keri Arthur brings her Outcast series to a breathtaking conclusion as Déchet supersoldier Tiger races against time to save humanity from darkness and total annihilation…. Though Winter Halo–the pharmaceutical company behind the evil experimentation on both children and adults–has been destroyed, the danger is far from over. Not only do seven children remain unaccounted for, but some of the vampires are now able to walk in light. The key to stopping the unthinkable lies in finding Ciara Dream, the last member of the trio behind the plot to give full light immunity to both the vampires and the Others. But Ciara, like Tiger herself, is a shapeshifter, able to take on any human form she desires. To find her, Tiger will need to use every skill in her formidable arsenal, and even that might not be enough to save the city and the people she has started to care about. Because the vampires are coming, and this time, the lights won’t stop them.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
The third and final installment of the Outcast series is as fast-paced and high octane as the first two, with Tiger on the hunt for the illusive Cara Dream. This was the first novel in the series that I didn’t listen to on audiobook, so it was a bit different reading it vs. listening. Not that it took away from my enjoyment, it is just a different experience. As much as I love audiobooks, I think sometimes the act of reading is more immersive.
In book 3 Tiger finds herself tested in ways she never thought, and it almost breaks her. But she has an inner strength that is beyond compare. My only regret was that we didn’t get more of her and Jonas together. Maybe Arthur isn’t done with them? I would like more of these two.
This is a fantastic adult dystopian/post-apocalyptic series. It is hard to find adult books in the genre most are YA, but this one is great if you don’t mind Vampires and other paranormal thrown into the mix. I am rating The Black Tide (Outcast #3) 5 Boundless Stars; I loved it.
