The words dystopian or post apocalyptic are often used in reviews when discussing books that are set in a dark futuristic world and it seems that Keri Arthur has well and truly dipped her toe in the water No I will go further and suggest that she has dived head long in with this the first in her new urban fantasy series Most definitely not paranormal romance although there is sex here but if you are expecting romance then you might be a tad disappointed Whilst the heroine Tiger who takes m The words dystopian or post apocalyptic are often used in reviews when discussing books that are set in a dark futuristic world and it seems that Keri Arthur has well and truly dipped her toe in the water No I will go further and suggest that she has dived head long in with this the first in her new urban fantasy series Most definitely not paranormal romance although there is sex here but if you are expecting romance then you might be a tad disappointed Whilst the heroine Tiger who takes my prize for oddest name certainly seems to share chemistry of some sort with one or two characters I m left wondering just where her journey will take her.Ok down and dirty, it took me a while to truly connect with Tiger Why Well there s just so much thrown in , it s as if science meets magic to create a female that resembles the energiser bunny Her abilities are astounding and for me maybe too so She is what s known as a dechet, a humanoid type mixture of shifter and vampire created to be no
