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.
I’ve enjoyed all the books in the Outcast series. The Black Tide is the final book in the trilogy although I always seem to want more if I like a series. It wraps up the overall story arc but I’d love to see how things go on in the future.
The story is more of a war with strategy and suspense than a romance. In fact, there is very little romance. At the beginning, Cat (Tiger) is trying to find all the laboratories, both to end the experiments and rescue any children. For the first 20%, it seemed slow until either I got back into the world or the action began. I would have liked more development of the relationship with Jonas somehow but there wasn’t a lot of time with the battles they were fighting. Their roles kept them separated much of the time.
The plot kept me tense and was a bit twisty. The science and political / military strategies were intriguing. I loved the last showdown with its shocker when Cat was in desperate straits. I recommend the whole trilogy.
