About the Author
As a child, J.P. consumed any book he could get his hands on. The likes of Stephen King, Michael Crichton, and Dean Koontz paved the bookshelves of his childhood, providing a plethora of fantastical and terrifying tales that he read way too early in life. Though the effect these books had on his psyche could be called into question, these masters of storytelling managed to warp his mind in just the perfect way to spin a fun yarn or two.
J.P. currently resides in San Antonio with his wife and hellion of a cat, both of whom look at him dubiously with some frequency.

It's possible that these type of experiment are fantasy based, but I don't think so.
During WW2, the Axis (Germany)was involved with these types of experiments, very very bad. One can actually say that it was against religious beliefs. But again this in the eyes of the believers. These town's people went through the norm of discovery and destroy.
It's not a bad read, but it's always sad 😢because
no one chooses to become a backroom scientific research speciments. Supposedly in the name of Science, "A Super Army Of Altered Men" in the name of protection. I always feel if we do it what's hindering another country from creating monsters, that become mentally unhinged. That's a hot mess folks, most dangerous situations.
The narrator was ok but I wasn’t crazy about her male voices. Her voice just wasn’t deep enough or didn’t have the right pitch. But it wasn’t bad enough that it took me out of the story.
It’s a problem I have with a lot of modern horror and books in general: they become just so dang LOOOOOOOOOOONG. I appreciate an author (esp a horror writer) who can rein themselves in and keep a good pace. Probably why my favorite horror tends to be short stories.
I enjoyed the small town aspect of Rose Valley, being from small town life myself it’s always nice seeing that well represented in more books. It was done well enough that I feel the author has either grown up in that environment or at least experienced it himself. Thumbs up from me on that alone!
The Beast leans towards monster movie/creature feature of the horror spectrum, which is appropriate given its title. I’ve always had a soft spot for those: monster action with gore, which this book also features for those who are on the squeamish side.
I’m excited that this series seem to be leaning towards monster of the week style with its novels, I look forward to seeing what’s up next!
That said, all the cops in this book were cartoonishly bad. Like "can't wait till this guy gets eaten" bad. That dropped the book from a 4 star to a three star for me.
Overall a very "ok" read, if you are a monster story fan.
Fair warning though, you won’t want to put this book down until you reach the end.
This is the best new author I’ve read, and I can’t wait to read more of his work!
