Format: Paperback
The Beast Within is a three author anthology. Some of the stories are better than others but they are all uniquely enjoyable.

The Howling - Erin McCarthy - This is the shortest of the entries in The Beast Within. Everything about this story is fast. By the time we start The Howling the story feels like it is in full swing. Liv is engaged to Scarborough who is her ex boyfriend's brother. I found everything about Liv to simplistic - she just sort of falls into the situations in The Howling and doesn't really seem to have much of a backbone. I found myself wishing for more details about everything, I guess basically I would have liked to have a bit more detail and length so I could really invest in the characters. It felt like the story just began and suddenly it was rushing to completion. Overall it was good - but not quite what I expected with her headlining this anthology.

Smoke on the Water - Bianca D'Arc - This is a romance with zombie's and I have to admit I was skeptical. The pace was good, the plot interesting, and I really liked Donna and John. Donna wasn't the damsel in distress that D'Arc could have made her but she was a kick butt heroine. John was man enough to accept her for her strengths and was a totally sexy alpha male. My only real complaint with this one is it didn't really seem to end - I am assuming this is intended to become a series which depending on where she takes the Zombie storyline could be really good.

Redeeming the Wizard - Jennifer Lyon - I have to say this story made the book for me. I loved it. Gage and Mira lit the pages on fire and I found the details Lyon put into the plot just added to the overall feel of the world she created.

HASH(0xa2047884) out of 5 stars fun romantic fantasies Sept. 2 2010
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Paperback
"The Howling" by Erin McCarthy. Liv wonders whether she should delay her marriage to Scarborough as she still loves his brother Sebastian, who obviously rejected her having vanished with her money six months ago. While Scarborough flies to New York on business, Sebastian runs as a wolf while healing from when his sibling tried to kill him. He vows to return to lead his pack, but is angry with Liv for moving in with his brother.

"Smoke on the Water" by Bianca D'Arc. Donna is immune to the zombie contagion so has been partnered with veteran CIA operative John. They head to Tennessee to conduct undercover surveillance of Elizabeth who allegedly created the disease. John and Donna pretend to be newlyweds on a fishing vacation as the lodge next door makes observation easier. They begin to fall in love but neither knows where Elizabeth conceals her horde.

"Redeeming the Wizard" by Jennifer Lyon. Mira hates Gage the wizard who she blames him for the deaths of her parents, killed by trolls while visiting him seventeen years ago. Still she needs his help when a wizard kidnapped her matchmaking Gram. He asks what she offers in payment and she responds with anything he desires. Seventeen years ago Gage trusted his apprentice Jillian who seduced him and stole some of his power when she tried to bring over a demon, but lost control. The demon killed Mira's parents. Gage killed Jillian and banished the demon, but his power overloaded and fried to unusable. As they fall in love he remains her enemy.

The male leads know what they want and go after the women they want while the fantasy elements are cleverly designed to feel genuine although the story lines are thin.

HASH(0xa204780c) out of 5 stars The Beast Within Sept. 15 2010
By melindeeloo - Published on
Format: Paperback
Though only one of the heroes is truly `beastly', The Beast Within offers three quickies heavy on the steam with a touch of the paranormal.

Erin McCarty's "The Howling- A women who is engaged to the brother of the man who abandoned her and stole her money is reconsidering her wedding plans after dreaming that she is a bride who is literally thrown to the wolves, causes ~~ I really didn't like the dream sequences in Erin McCarty's story "The Howling", and never managed to feel really connected to the pair in the main story line.

Bianca D'Arc's "Smoke on the Water" -A woman who became part of the zombie hunting team because of her immunity to the disease which makes their bite and scratches so lethal, tries to prove herself to her partner who is a true warrior. She gets the chance to show her true worth when the pair go undercover to try and capture the zombies' creator. ~~ I liked this story better. Connected to D'Arc's zombie hunter series, both characters were appealing and there was a good amount of action.

Jennifer Lyon's "Redeeming the Wizard"- A woman with good reason to hate a reclusive wizard needs his help to rescue her kidnapped grandmother.~~ Out of all of the three stories, I liked this one the most. I really like wizards and Lyon's gives her wizard a sensual intensity that's hard to resist, but be forewarned the balance between story and steamy stuff definitely favors the steamy stuff, the pair hook up early and often.

HASH(0xa1f00480) out of 5 stars Not worth it!! Sept. 5 2010

Format: Kindle Edition
I can't believe I anticipated this release. The stories were not engaging at all. The Kindle price is also way over-inflated. Do not waste your time or your money.

HASH(0xa1fb3144) out of 5 stars really good Aug. 9 2011
By Annette - Published on
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed The Beast Within.

Redeeming the Wizard by Jennifer Lyon is my favorite of the three stories. I feel in love with Mira and Gage. I love their relationship. I even liked the bad guy and hope he gets his own story.

The Howling by Erin McCarthy left me wondering if I had missed an earlier book about Liv and Sebastian. I felt that most of their romance had already taken place. I would have enjoyed seeing them fall in love. But still a good story.

I liked Smoke on the Water as well. Which surprised me because I don't like zombies. I even found myself routing for one of them just a little bit!) The relationship between John and Donna could have come out of real life. I would read more zombies books by Bianca D'Arc
