Publisher's Summary

Nothing is as it used to be for the Black Dagger Brotherhood.
After avoiding war with the Shadows, alliances have shifted, and lines have been drawn. The slayers of the Lessening Society are stronger than ever, preying on human weakness to acquire more money, more weapons, more power. But as the Brotherhood readies for an all-out attack on them, one of their own fights a battle within himself....
For Rhage, the Brother with the biggest appetites but also the biggest heart, life was supposed to be perfect - or at the very least perfectly enjoyable. Mary, his beloved shellan, is by his side, and his king and his brothers are thriving. But Rhage can't understand - or control - the panic and insecurity that plague him...and that terrifies him as well as distances him from his mate.
After suffering a mortal injury in battle, Rhage must reassess his priorities - and the answer, when it comes to him, rocks his world...and Mary's. But Mary is on a journey of her own, one that will either bring them closer together or cause a split that neither will recover from....

J R Ward ~ Hands Down ~ The # 1 Author in PNR!

JR Ward is one of the best authors, and her BDB series is my favorite. I love the action, suspense, steamy romance, and a phenomenal character development and the multiple POV's. I bought this story on preorder before it was released, and prior to my upcoming back surgery. I wanted to have a story ready to listen to after my surgery that would help me cope with the pain and recovery. The Beast was a perfect choice, and kept me engaged from the beginning to the end. I loved how the story weaved in new characters and developed existing characters on a deeper level.

With each new story, Jim Frangione's performance gets better and he delivers another stellar performance by giving each character their own voice and using the right amout of tone and inflection to convey the different emotions throughout the story.

This is a series I would recommend to everyone! It has a great mix of both feminine and masculinity, and should appeal to multiple audiences. If you have not listen to any of the Black Dagger Brotherhood stories, I highly recommend you start from the beginning and I'm confident you will like this series. These stories are well worth the credit and time invested in listening to the stories.

Love it but...

I LOVED this book. The only complaint I have is that they changed the pronunciation of the names of some of the people. For example, Havers was pronounced Haavers. Xcor was pronounced Core. Xhex was pronounced Hex.
