Summary

Abducted by alien slavers and taken to a lawless desert world, the last thing starship pilot Mia expects is to find herself in the protective, brawny arms of a wild, blue-skinned alien.

Rescued by gladiators on the alien world of Carthago, Mia is working to find other abducted humans who are still lost. But someone else also needs her help - the untamed alien who's saved her twice. Rescued from vicious fight rings he's fought in since he was a child, Vek is prone to losing control in aggressive fits of rage...and Mia discovers that she is the only who can calm him. As she finds herself drawn to the man beneath the beast, she knows that with his enhanced senses, Vek can help her find her friends.

For years, all Vek'ker has known is death, darkness, and killing. Despite his newfound freedom, he is struggling to control his rages and withdrawal from the drugs his captors used on him. Only one scent soothes him, one voice calms him, and one woman is his light in the dark. Vek will do anything to protect Mia and make her happy...including vowing to find her friends.

With the gladiators from the House of Galen, Vek, and Mia follow mysterious clues into a dangerous part of the desert on the trail of the missing humans. They are drawn closer together but as they enter the deadly Illusion Mountains, they have no idea of the dangers lying in wait for them, or how far they will both be pushed to their limits in order to survive.

I bow to the si/fi Queen Anna Hackett!!!

I love si/fi romance stories, and I have never come across stories so fantastic, such an art form with your words. The world's you create, I am in awe. I didn't think I was going to love Vek so much, but his character was just what Mia and Vek's love story needed. Again you knocked this one out of the park. And as always Vivienne as narrator was great. I don't know how she keeps up on all the different characters voices. Don't pass on this series. It is worth the audiobook.

Great story

A very fast read. Like all of Ms. Hackett's series, each one embellishes and expands on the world she's creating. In Beast, we have a hero who had been in the underground fight rings so long he knows nothing of how to deal with feelings and relationships and a heroine who knows what she wants and goes for it. Great world building and wonderful writing, this series is one of my favorite reads and Beast is climbing the charts of my favorite reads.
