The first in an all-new futuristic fantasy series from Keri Arthur—the New York Times bestselling author of the Souls of Fire novels.
When the bombs that stopped the species war tore holes in the veil between this world and the next, they allowed entry to the Others—demons, wraiths, and death spirits who turned the shadows into their hunting grounds. Now, a hundred years later, humans and shifters alike live in artificially lit cities designed to keep the darkness at bay….
As a déchet—a breed of humanoid super-soldiers almost eradicated by the war—Tiger has spent her life in hiding. But when she risks her life to save a little girl on the outskirts of Central City, she discovers that the child is one of many abducted in broad daylight by a wraith-like being—an impossibility with dangerous implications for everyone on earth.
Because if the light is no longer enough to protect them, nowhere is safe…

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.
CITY OF LIGHTS is an action packed wonder. Tiger was bred to be a type of humanoid soldier to fight the shifters and vampires in the war 130 years ago. She is the last of her kind. At least she thinks she is. When she is asked to help find the missing children, she just cannot say No. In trying to find the children, she finds out that she is not the only Déchet out there. She is able to see and talk to the dead, and they help her to solve this mystery. There is more going on than missing children. This is such a good book, and I really like Tiger. I recommend this book to everyone. I give CITY OF LIGHT 5/5 STARS.
