Tiger is a lab-made super-soldier called a dechet who has
lived a long time, surviving in the world that ended the
lives of all of her comrades, including children in a
horrific way. Two of those children, Bear and Cat are her
ghostly companions, and though Tiger would much prefer to be
left alone, she cannot turn her back on those in need. And
truth be told -- THE BLACK TIDE of evil is fast approaching.
Jonah, the soldier turned mercenary, has been an adversary
and associate who has plans for more, if they can only
survive the enemies. Tiger and Jonah have to work together
to free the kidnapped children who are being experimented
on. They have no choice because if the experiments succeed
what is left of the world will be destroyed.
THE BLACK TIDE is an amazing, fast paced, dark and
frightening read! This is the finale of author Keri Arthur's
and it wraps everything up nicely. For those who have not
read the other books in this series, I must note here that
this is not a romance, though there are elements of romance
and some steamy sex scenes mixed into the storyline.
THE BLACK TIDE is a paranormal, dystopian product that gives
elements of frightening things and emotional ups and downs.
Tiger has only wanted what she was never given, a home, a
family, so when she was given the chance to save the lives
of children she does not hesitate. So many of her fellow
dechets died horrible deaths when the shifters decided that
they were abominations and should be done away with, even
children were not spared. Only Tiger and one other survived
(his story was in a previous book) now she is no longer
anonymous and must work with Jonah (whom she met in the
first book when she rescued him and a child) and the healer,
witch Nuri. At first, neither of them were in my favorites
list, but both grew on me until you realize Jonah begins to
have feelings for Tiger and that Nuri is a gruff, rough
woman with a heart of gold. Some of the bad guys are either
pure evil, idiots who are all into the science and not into
what it can be used for or those who have never let the past
I am always sad to see the end of an exhilarating series,
but in this case, I was delighted that all the bad guys got
their just deserts and thrilled with Tiger's reward! If you
want a read that will put you in the heart of a different
kind of world, fighting the good fight and learning the true
meaning of love then get your hands on THE BLACK TIDE. And
you will also want to get the other two books, just because
they are amazing reads.
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.
