The Scars are back. "Tyrant" is the second book in the 'Scars of the Wraith' series from the New York Times Best Selling Author Nashoda Rose.
“I don’t do nice. Period.” -Kilter (nickname: Off-Kilter)
Kilter is an a*****e. He's rude and crass with little hope of finding salvation after being betrayed and tortured by his brother more than a hundred years ago. Reckless and stubborn he has alienated everyone—just the way he likes it. Until the day he meets Rayne and emotions he buried long ago reawaken.
“I was nothing but a science experiment.” -Rayne Thurston
Rayne has been locked away and used for research ever since she was a child. The abuse caused her to withdraw into a tomb of numbness where she’s found a safe place to hide. But her safe place isn’t safe at all, it’s slowly killing her.
When Kilter rescues her and she is unexpectedly drawn to his raw honesty, Rayne must decide whether to trust him and fight for what she can’t see or drown into the depths of darkness.
For some Scars, it’s the story of healing and redemption, for others it’s the beginning of a tortured existence.
Which will it be for Kilter and Rayne?
A band of fierce warriors walk in the shadows of the human world with capabilities derived from the senses: Trackers, Sounders, Healers, Tasters, Visionaries and the rare Reflectors. They are known as the ‘Scars.

Author's Note: This book was originally published as "Step" (Senses series). It has been completely re-written.
I read the first book in the series because it was free and thought that it was ok. The main characters were good but didn’t stand out to me as much as Kilter and Rayne. So I was excited when I purchased this one. I disagree with some of the reviews on here that say that it doesn’t focus enough on Kilter and Rayne. While it is true that you have multiple stories going on, it comes back to Kilter and Rayne so fast that it’s not annoying. I am a harsh reviewer and I won’t finish a book if it is boring. I actually read this in 2 days because i couldn’t put it down.
Really like this whole series. Can’t wait to read the next one. There is a lot of characters to keep track of. The book can sometimes be confusing because of it but it didn’t bother me too much.
Fell in love
I fell in love with Rayne Kilter. I did really like him too much in the standalone, nor in the previous book. This time I loved him!! Loved that we get to follow up on the other characters and I've began to fall in love with other couples like Damian and Abby and Walearon (sp) and his ex. Love love love the series and I'm definitely now a solid fan of PNR books. Please and hurry with the next book. Can't wait for Delarea and Walerean (sp). This book, well the three out now, are a definite read. I stayed up all night to finish, knowing I'd pay for it the next day. So worth it. Now I miss it.
