I have really enjoyed this series and will keep reading, but this book missed the mark a bit. Marina is continuing her learning curve on beast adaptation. Unfortunately, there is little action and a lot of hand-wringing for most of this book. Way too much time is spent with kids and arguing about training. Extremely repetitive at times. Literally 2/3 of this book is at a standstill. Pace was way off compared to the previous books. Roberts decides to make up for all that waiting in the last 1/3 o ...more

It was slow moving & repetitive. I lost interest.

Beast is the 3rd book in the post-apocalyptic world book series. And Beast is what this book is. I usually devour (yes, pun attended) Holly’s books. This one I did take my time. It was a welcome escape from the real world.
I love series where we get different main characters each book. Yet there are times we just want to see where the main characters go. This series will do that for you. We still follow King and Marinah into the world of the Shadow Warriors.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!!! Highly recommended!! ANOTHER 5 star read by Holly S Roberts!!

WOW!!! Where do I begin in describing just how much I LOVE this book! First, I have to say that I fell in love with the first 2 books in the duet with Shadow and Warrior so I was immediately hooked! Plus,there isn't that many books that make me laugh out loud so when I'm fortunate enough to find an author like, Holly S Roberts who has such a GREAT sense of humor that comes out in every book she writes, as we

The Beast by Holly S Roberts is number 3 in her Genetically Modified Series.

Talk about a wild ride! This rollercoaster takes you through twists and turns, ups & downs, and again leaves you breathless at times. You never see the twists coming, and the turns take you places you never even thought of! The entire premise makes you rethink what you know about good & bad, holy & evil.

As Marinah continues to grow and le
This is Book 3 in the Genetically Modified series. I just have to say that this series just keeps getting better with each book she adds to it. Marinah and King are trying to help the outposts in their fight with the Federation. This is playing havoc with their honeymoon. Plus, she’s going to train one of the human kids! Who has time to do anything? Not her. We find out how strong Marinah really is in this story and it’s going to really surprise you. She is such an amazing Shadow Warrior and I h ...more

Great continuation in the Marinah and King Saga and a beautiful twist to change the planet field. Be ready for one or more books because you will realize quickly this is bit the end. Love the secondary characters and few mates that have been shown. Hellspawn is quickly becoming my fave and can wait to see her story develop.
The Federation is Hell bent in destroying Marinah and the Shadow Warriors and she has her eyes set on President Barnes. Lets see how this post apocalypse story continues

What an excellent series!

I am so very happy to have found Holly S Roberts' writing. I too am a police officer, and as Holly explained in the Afterward, I love how she wrote in Marinah's POV. When you lead, there are so many things to think about (true multitasking). Holly gives you insight into how leaders are trained and this series is a winner! This may be a story of Post Apocalyptic Earth, but it is a Holly S Roberts kind of love story.

Brings out the Beast in us.

We all have those moments in life, you know, when you can't hold it back. That beast just has to come out. This book has that. Wow! Marinah's beast has to come out. Yet Marinah has such control. I love her tenderness, yet firmness with Ruth. This book touched my heart. If you've looking for a great read. Please get this book. From a True Fan... Pam James.

I LOVED THIS!!!! I didn't think this series could possibly get any better because I love it so much but Holly S Roberts managed somehow to do just that! I am ready for the next one already and couldn't put it down until I had the whole book read. I'm not one for spoilers though I love discussing books with those who have read them! Marinah and King are great! There are more developments with a few others and a few new characters as well. Run and get this series!!! ...more

Loved it!

I read all three, one right after the other, and now can't wait for the next book! What an awesome series by a phenomenal author I haven't read before. I will definitely be checking out her other stories. I would definitely rank her as one of the best authors I've read on the kindle in the last few years.

Great Science Fiction

Great series I couldn't stop read all three books back to back. The characters grab you and just pull you in. Some people have issues with the science part but since I read almost every genre zombies, vampires and all types of monsters call to me. A completely different take on monsters which I truly loved and appreciated. Hats off to the authors

This was my favorite book in this series!! I love Marinah and how she has grown. I enjoy the humor in this book!! A book that can make you Laugh Out Load is awesome. I really loved the Doc Martins reference it was the best. Ruth is gonna kick ass in the future I just hope she gets her story some day. Once again I think this author hit it out of the ball park!

I enjoyed this instalment to the series. In this book we get to see Marinah in full blown warrior mode although she's in denial for most of it and this is down to lack of confidence. With the help of King and even some of the warriors Marinah is able to come to terms eventually of her true nature and self. Can't wait for the next book... if there is one ... I hope so 😊 ...more

So exciting

I love how Marinah is evolving right in front of everyone. Her insecurities are so normal being from a male dominated world it would be hard to start giving orders being the only warrior woman.

Also leaving that real Marinah and her cat were both included is so sweet. I hope they're in fact reunited 💓💔💖

This is Beast, book 3 of Genetically Modified
Series written by Holly S Roberts/D’Elen McClain. I am loving this series! The inner Beasts and fighting the Hellhounds is keeping the Shadow Warriors quite busy. Marinah is struggling to accept her new role as a member of the guard. Just wait for her next struggle! I can’t wait to find out more about these Shadow Warriors and how they came to be.

This series is simply amazing!

Once I started reading the first book I couldn't put it down and finished the series in less then a week, I'm sad to be finished and hope more is to come!
