I love all the books in this series, and have reread them many times over. I recommend all three books to everyone!
riveted to a plot as it thickens and evolves
In a post-apocalyptic world where a war with shifter has wiped out almost all the genetically enhanced, while A battle to still defeat the vampires continues on, Tiger, one of the enhanced, is fighting to survive. Weaving her way through the political machinations, hiding her true nature and lead by the ghosts of the war ravaged lands, Tiger now must infiltrate Winter Halo to discover who is attacking the female body guards. The plot that she uncovers leads back to started the first devastating war.
Arthur’s imagination and story telling is superb in this the second installation of the Outcast series. Where else can you find yourself routing on ghosts and riveted to the plot as it thickens and evolves.
I received this ARC copy of Winter Halo from Berkley Publishing Group - Signet in exchange for a honest review.
