Summary from Goodreads
He’s been locked away his entire life.
He dreams of freedom.
The only way he can accomplish his goals is by breaking free of the chains tying him to a dark past and gloomy existence. But there’s one catch. He’s not human.
And he’s never set foot outside his jail.
Devoted to saving his peers as well as his own life, he sets out to find the one person that can help him achieve his objectives. He knows where she will be and what she will look like, but what he doesn’t anticipate is the fact he finds himself caring for the girl whose life he’s put at risk, more and more each day. He has no name. He has only known hatred and violence before her.
However, she will teach him to have faith in humanity, even if she can’t trust him. Together they will embark on a journey to bring down a corrupt system responsible for the loss of many innocent lives. But when he finds his feelings compromised, can he still move on knowing that doing so will put an end to the life she once knew? How far is he willing to go to be free?
This book has many elements that keep you hooked. Adventure, mystery, plus strong and appealing characters. I was very impressed by not only the pace of this story but by the well-written dialogue. Throughout the story, the chapters bounce from Kristina’s point of view to ‘Tiger’ and I honestly enjoyed both immensely. While I usually come to prefer the POV of one character, I thought the chemistry between them really set this book apart.
The differences in characters and their unique personalities were really well done and it became incredibly easy to become attached to them and become immersed in this modern supernatural thriller. Despite their initial weariness of each other after Kristina saves Tiger, their trust and relationship continues to grow. Kristina is thrown into a new and dangerous world and Tiger is simply thrown into the world (period). I loved Kristina’s no-nonsense personality and logical thinking. While Tiger has incredible abilities and the tutoring of the world from the mysterious Castiel, he retains a unique innocence that becomes clear to Kristina. Together they go on a journey to stop the Institute and their vicious experiments.
I absolutely recommend this book to read next on your list. It is packed with sweet moments that I loved and very intense action that had me sitting up straight. Wonderful writing. Engaging storyline. Lovable Characters. 5 stars.
