Review by Riane:
So, last week I reviewed Bound. Now, I get to review Beast!! We are visiting Sophie Oak’s Faery world, again! Only this time, we’re going to the Vampire plane for the Dellacourts and we’re bringing a … werewolf?
Dante Dellacourt is a rich, spoiled, “man whore”… only in a good way. Well, ok so his family doesn’t think it’s good. After his latest scandal involving the vampire version of a certain reality tv show, his Dad gives him an ultimatum. Find a consort and settle down, or be disowned.
Kaja is a werewolf. She has been labeled an outcast from her pack and left to starve on the frozen plane she’s from. While learning the hard way how to survive, she was attacked and brought to a strange world. Finding herself unable to understand anyone or shift for some reason, she does the only thing she can. She fights.
When Dante accompanies his cousins to address a problem at the marketplace, he finds a woman unlike any he has ever met before. Even alone, frightened, dirty and savagely attacking anyone who comes near her, this mysterious woman calls to the primitive part of himself that he never knew existed. Now, he just has to figure out how to tame her and then claim her.
I loved Dante in Bound. He was fun and sweet. Watching him fall a little in love with Meg was very touching and I was just waiting for him to find a strong consort. Kaja definitely fits that description! It was a lot of fun watching the interaction between them… especially the great sex.
I love Sophie Oak’s stories and this one is definitely no exception. I don’t think its quite as good as Bound but it’s definitely good. I feel sorry for my friend who I kept messaging going “Oh I love this line!!!” Now, she’s decided she has to read this book too. This is definitely one I recommend. But, if you want to read it, you MUST start with Bound. There’s too much that will not make sense if you don’t start at the beginning.
For those of us who have read the Siren series, there will be a couple of Vampires you are going to really enjoy seeing in this book. But Sophie, Jeremy! Really?? Also, um, WHEN is the next book?
