A post-apocalyptic romance.

Sex is what keeps a girl like Cyn from going insane with the blossoming light of dawn, for daylight brings the Lure.

Start your review of Rutger (Beast Horde #2)
Bex (Beckie Bookworm)

loved this one just so much this series really is a great read that I recommend highly especially if you like some sizzle with your sci-fi.
So we start this just after the events of the previous book and that dramatic fallout.
Cyn is on trial for her actions and it isn't looking good for her at all.
On top of all that Vargr is not a happy beaster, he is feeling massively betrayed and hurt by Cyn actually shooting him and he's holding a big fat grudge.
Luckily Rutger is there to pick up the slack in

Only Cari Silverwood can create Beasts that are as wickedly delicious as Vargr and Rutger!
Only Cari Silverwood can create a mysterious girl like Cyn,that is the perfect fit for them both!
And only Cari Silverwood can give them a world like this,where they can play,fight and love in!
With AI’s only she can come up with,AI’s you can’t help,but love.

This second part of the series continues where Vargr ended.
With him being shot by Cyn,and that f**king HURTS!
Did she think só little of him? Of their mat

I'm out of breath after reading book two in Silverwood 's Beast Horde series. It has more excitement, more beasts, more sex, more reveal and more delightful references to cultural things that didn't make it to the apocalypse. This story starts up directly after the end of book one, so I would suggest reading book one first.

Rutger is the beast from the Worshipper tribe, and for me, he's one of the most interesting. We learn he was in many foster homes that taught him religion in many forms. He ma

Ahhhhh, back to epic giant peen and post-apocalyptic sexcapades. Cari Silverwood is pretty depraved, dirty, and debauched, and so are her worlds. But the thing is, that even with all the debauchery that happens, there is a heckuva story going on in here.

Cyn, Vargr, and Rutger's story is compelling. This one picks up where the last one left off, so we aren't really missing any time in between the two books, which is always nice. Everyone is still trying to figure out what to do about Cyn, becaus

"This world was full of uncertainties. Worry when things landed in your lap, not before. "
And Cyn has reason to worry!

🛑This is book 2 in the trilogy. It is not standalone.

"No matter how big and strong one might be, feelings existed. Everyone hurt."

I am still a bit mad at Varg. I firmly stand with my belief that he overreacted! I get how he is viewing Cyn's actions but still - Pull your head out and take a moment to look at the whole picture -you big meanie!
Cyn did what came as instinct and ever

In traditional fashion, This author has continued this series in a way that only she can. It is filled with titillating sci-fi "romantic" scenes that only she can produce. I loosely call it a romance because technically it is a romance but it is something so much more. That is the beauty of this author, she manages to take a genre like romance and turn it on its head and make it uniquely her own. There really should be a subgenre called Cari's Sexcapades because no one can truly touch o

“What you’re doing is the new you, the you the nanomachines are helping to grow.”
Her frown was cute, as always. He grinned.
“Not an insult, girl. That applies to all of us.”
“I’m still me, though.”
“She feels like girl,” Rutger interjected, hand squeezing and re-adjusting on her legs. “Is good.”

Rutger continues the fantastical, post apocalyptic storyline of kicka$$ Cyn, as she discovers more about who she is and what she’s capable of. And with the supremely sexy Rutger and Vargr at

And here it is!
Going Walkabout.
After the disaster at the end of Vargr the Beast Horde is on the move to find answers to their wildly diverse enhancements. On the way to their projected goal they meet up with new variations of Doctor Nietze's experiments.
But of course the Ghoul Lords are not standing by idle. There's blood and gore, small victories, vicious fights, growing love, and of course loads of "Anti-Lure-activity" ;-) !!!

Mmm, Rutger is delicious!!

I must say that this series just gets hotter and better! Rutger is the glue in this relationship, he nicely balances a slight immaturity in Vargr and Cyn's impulsiveness.
He will need to do that and more as they all head of into more danger to find answers for Cyn
This quest will be bathed in blood, fear, uncertainty, distrust, conflict, lust, discoveries, forgiveness and lot and lots and lots of Lure blocking bodily fluids!

I love me a good horny horned beaster.....

Hot, dirty, wicked, filthy, depraved, witty and snarky, all tied up (or should that be bound) with whatever chains, rope or suitable material is to hand. Rutger continues the story of Cyn and her two beasters, with the same great world building, crazy pop culture references, perverted sex scenes and brilliant fast-paced plot that we found in Vargr.

The story telling is outstandingly amazing, I never expect anything less from Cari Silverwood truth be

There is so much action going on in Rutger, the second book of the Beast Horde series! It opens with Cyn being held as a prisoner awaiting a hearing for having wounded and killed some beasters accidentally in the process of shooting one of the enemy Ghoul Lords, Avidex, after he had invaded the beasters’ compound. Her bond-mate Vargr was one of those she unintentionally wounded. His anger wounds her in return. He finds he cannot be around her or trust her. She is cleared of murder charges at the ...more
This is book #2 in the Beast Horde series and it is just as thrilling, action-packed, and sexy as the first. The story continues where Vargr ended. Everyone is dealing with the aftermath of the Ghoul Lord attack, some better than others.
For me, this story was even more exciting than the first and considering the story is set in an alien ravaged world there is a fair amount of humour and tender moments.
Our group heads out on their quest to find Big Daddy, answers to who they really are and possib

I just love Vargr, Cyn and Rutger. This world is fascinating and creepily unique lol. The supporting characters are very well thought out. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. I would highly recommend this book and this series.

A little too dark for me

As I previously stated in book 1 review, everyone has their fetishes, but it does not mean that everyone likes every fetish. With that being said, I can usually rationalize whatever turns people on, but true pain and injury is hard for me to process. And that is the problem I had with this book. I do not mind whatever consenting adults decide, but when extreme pain and blood is involved, things have been taken to far. Other than that issue, I enjoyed watching the team try

My favorite thing about this author is the way she can take any genre and make it her own. When you read as much as I do, books can start sounding the same. You know the trope, can guess at future events, and the only thing that changes are the character names. That won't happen with any of Cari's books. Each one is fresh and exciting, and will take everything you expect to happen and toss it on its head. Her worlds are complex and detailed enough to "see". Her characters are complex and have hi ...more

In this second part, we find Vargr upset with Cyn, she shot him! Rutger is taking up the slack with their bond-mating and keeping the Lure from getting to Cyn, with dirty, hot sex. Cyn has been tried and pronounced innocent of killing who they thought they saw her kill. There is a lot of confusion about what exactly Cyn is and what she's capable of and Cyn herself is just as clueless. The rag-tag bunch are on a mission now to find Big Daddy, Little Mo's home base. There is also a mystery about W ...more

The second book in this trilogy. It is not a standalone. If you haven’t read Vargr then the story won’t make any sensen.

The story picks right after the dramatic events in the first book. Lives hang in the balance and choices have to be made and sides to be taken. I did want to shake Vargr by his wings, because he was being stubborn.

The story is one of action with a roadtrip to find big Daddy and find out more about the how and why.

The relationship between Cyn, Rugter and Vargr deepens and change

We're back with the Beast Horde versus the Ghoul Lords, with new revelations and discoveries. It's another fantastic journey with this ragtag family of sorts. This was Rutger's book, and that beast is fine!! But Vargr still played an equally big part in it. Rutger is playing the peacemaker with Vargr and Cyn, who are angry with each other. I thought Vargr was a little harsh, but he felt what he felt, going on his knee-jerk reaction. We find out more about Cyn and the pain she suffers as she keep ...more

What can I say? I loved Vargr, and the way it ended had me desperate for Rutger to see what came next, and Cari did not disappoint. I have a soft spot for post apocalyptic style stories to begin with and the fact Cari has built one and given it eroticism as well as adventure and mystery just leaves me wanting more and more and more. As always, her writing is not for the faint of heart, as it's dark at times, dirty at others, but those who like some wild in their world, and enjoy science fiction ...more

Rutger is the second book in Ms. Silverwood's Beast Horde series, and if you haven't read Vargr, the first book, you should do so (Amazon) This book leaves off right after the events of the last book. Cyn finds herself in hot water after shooting Vargr - who's not so happy about the whole thing as it is.
Luckily, Cyn has two things on her side, she has Rutger her believes she's more innocent than cranky Vargr does and she has Little Mo on her side. So they set off to find Little Mo's AI boss Big

What a Ride!

I absolutely love seeing how the relationship between Vargr, Rutger, and Cyn is blooming. I can't wait to see where their relationship goes in the next book and how the story ends. I love the plot and the merry band of misfits that are on this journey with the three main characters. I can't wait to see how this story ends.

Another freaking amazing post-apocalyptic story from such a phenomenal author. Cari Silverwood loves to titillate and shock her readers. She drops us down a rabbit whole of depraved, dirty and debauched worlds, which are absolutely fantastic in their imagery and sinfulness.

Cyn, Vargr and Rutger's story is intense and thrilling. Cyn is still trying to learn what exactly she is and how much of a kickass woman she can be. Vargr and Rutger can't keep their hands of her! They a

Cari Silverwood has done it again she brought you Rutger the second book in the beast Horder series. Rutger slides on it and settles in so good it kept the story flowing.

You gotta love our bad girl Cyn, right? well, she may just be into a bit deeper than she wants to be. Cari has built a fast past post-apocalyptic world that keeps your attention from beginning to end.

The trio that was rough around the edges as smoothed out into a working bond-mate trifecta that is Cari syle hot! Feeling oh yea
