About the Author
EDITOR: A writer since age six and a professional one since nineteen, my initial editing experience came in the swarms of prose I pumped out into the world, only occasionally into the world of actual magazines, anthologies or e-zines. Soon, as I began selling more regularly, and as publishers took note of my longer works, I began freelance editing. I've edited screenplays, memoirs, novels, children's books and, would you believe it, epic narrative poetry. One of the novels I edited, Under the Tamarind Tree, was shortlisted among nine others for the 2014 Dundee International Book Prize. A charter member of The Greater Los Angeles Writers Society (GLAWS), I am also the managing editor of the organization's official publication, Literary Landscapes, which features stories, excerpts, articles and poetry (see issues here). In addition, I belong to the editing collective Write For Success, for which I perform manuscript critiques and consultation. As an author, I have published nine novels and almost fifteen short stories. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

It's possible that these type of experiment are fantasy based, but I don't think so.
During WW2, the Axis (Germany)was involved with these types of experiments, very very bad. One can actually say that it was against religious beliefs. But again this in the eyes of the believers. These town's people went through the norm of discovery and destroy.
It's not a bad read, but it's always sad 😢because
no one chooses to become a backroom scientific research speciments. Supposedly in the name of Science, "A Super Army Of Altered Men" in the name of protection. I always feel if we do it what's hindering another country from creating monsters, that become mentally unhinged. That's a hot mess folks, most dangerous situations.
The narrator was ok but I wasn’t crazy about her male voices. Her voice just wasn’t deep enough or didn’t have the right pitch. But it wasn’t bad enough that it took me out of the story.
It’s a problem I have with a lot of modern horror and books in general: they become just so dang LOOOOOOOOOOONG. I appreciate an author (esp a horror writer) who can rein themselves in and keep a good pace. Probably why my favorite horror tends to be short stories.
I enjoyed the small town aspect of Rose Valley, being from small town life myself it’s always nice seeing that well represented in more books. It was done well enough that I feel the author has either grown up in that environment or at least experienced it himself. Thumbs up from me on that alone!
The Beast leans towards monster movie/creature feature of the horror spectrum, which is appropriate given its title. I’ve always had a soft spot for those: monster action with gore, which this book also features for those who are on the squeamish side.
I’m excited that this series seem to be leaning towards monster of the week style with its novels, I look forward to seeing what’s up next!
That said, all the cops in this book were cartoonishly bad. Like "can't wait till this guy gets eaten" bad. That dropped the book from a 4 star to a three star for me.
Overall a very "ok" read, if you are a monster story fan.
Fair warning though, you won’t want to put this book down until you reach the end.
This is the best new author I’ve read, and I can’t wait to read more of his work!
I also enjoyed the description of small town life and interaction. Paranormal isn't a huge genre for me, but I enjoyed the story thoroughly.
