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 makes a couple of fascinating statements.
“They know not the power in their hands. Are these the new gods we were looking for?”
“Those who the gods would destroy, they first make mad.”
They have obvious biblical references, and Silverwood mentions the Doctrine of Logical Gods. It brings up interesting thoughts for me. Could God have sent these Ghoul Lords to Earth to start over? An arc of sorts? Did he sacrifice millions to save a few? Are the beasts an aberration of nature? Fake Gods ready to destroy the word of God? I'm not overly religious, but that one sentence brings questions of justice and humanity in a ruined world. And believe it or not, it also brings to mind Neil Gaiman's masterpiece American Gods. That magical story was essentially about new Gods taking over from the old ones. It's a nuanced story worth reading if you haven't already.
Silverwood has excelled with world building here, painting a vivid landscape of everything from teetering skyscrapers to humans falling to their death.
"They trudged in a ragged column across this uneven terrain. The ting and rattle of equipment, murmur of voices, and the crunch of tires and beaster feet merged into a surreal gothic orchestral theme. Moonlight strained down through the gaps."
"Huge buttresses of semi-destroyed building supports rose above, sketching out lacework arches and jagged spears where buildings should be—diabolically teetering towers of barely there concrete and steel. Pieces could drop onto their heads at any random moment. "
You can feel the character's fear and adrenaline as they walk through treacherous paths, waiting for the worse to happen. You will cry with the characters as they mourn the dead or injured. You will NEED to know what they desperately want to know. Where do they come from? Why are they so different from each other? You will get this answer in this book even though there is a book three planned.
Silverwood smirks at her audience by mentioning Lord of the Rings, Cards Against Humanity and Hunger Games. Plus, did you know sex shops will survive the end of the world? Phew!
The sex scenes were hot as sin, but more importantly, they cement the bond between Cyn, Rutger and Vargr. As Cyn changes, her men help her every step of the way. And sex is important in the apocalypse, as Cyn muses:
"He and Rutger were her cures, the Holders of the Sacred Cum, to prevent the Lure taking her."
I recommend reading to find out what happens to the good guys, the bad guys and one crazy threesome.
We are back in Cari Silverwood’s wondrous made up world. Cyn shot Vargr at the end of the first book. Vargr is feeling hurt by Cyn’s actions. Also, Cyn is now on trial, which she is cleared of the wrong doing. Now the search is on for “Big Daddy” a home station for Little Mo (Cyn’s robo critter). They are also still fighting ghoul lords.
We have a few twists - What is Cyn? Hopefully we find out in the next book Titled Cyn. Which is the conclusion to this Trilogy. Now I can't wait for the next book to see what happens with Cyn, Vargr & Rutger!
Now for the warning and I am going to copy this from my review for Vargr.
Cari Silverwood’s books are not for everyone. They are some of the darkest books that I have read. So if you don’t like dark/kinky/sci-fi books, well hopefully you get the gist.
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 Willow
and Maura too, so the next installment of the Beast Hoarde should
have all the answers we are waiting for. Cyn is the next book and I
can't wait to find out all the answers to all my questions and to see
what deviant sex techniques the bond mates come up with to keep
the Lure from getting Cyn.

The story telling is outstandingly amazing, I never expect anything less from Cari Silverwood truth be told. Her characters are so believable, but more than that they say/think exactly the same thoughts that pop into my head as the plot unfolds. Her writing keeps me gripped from start to finish and never ceases to amaze me with it's ingenuity, it's uniqueness and it's sheer brilliance.
There are so many massively signposted easter eggs, but try as I might my poor brain couldn't interpret them until the end, when I had one of those huge "oh my word, now I get it and I'm embarrassed because it's now so obvious" moments. My advice is to pay attention to anything red. 😉 It's also one of the most brilliant plot twists (devices?) I've read in a long time, coming from so far out of the left field that it took me totally by surprise.
We fell in love with Vargr in the last book, for me Rutger really got a chance to shine in this one. As another wise reader mentioned (I'm looking at you Gabriela!) this pair are "both sides of the same coin". Cut from the same cloth but sewn together in slightly different ways. Vargr is quieter, more restrained and deep thinking, which can make him appear a little remote, Rutger is more open, more free in his emotions, less repressed and seems to just "get" Cyn. However both of them have a seriously kinky streak, that also runs (slightly?) on the gleefully sadistic side. Which is fantastic because it leads to some very, very scorchingly hot sexy times.
I'm now waiting very impatiently for the last book, Cyn.
Rutger carries straight on from Vargr and just has more of everything. The search for Big Daddy and a weapon to finally defeat the horrid Ghoul Lords continues. Rutger is extremely erotic the three (Rutger, Vargr and Cyn) have few boundaries. It's the fascinating storyline of Rutger that really got me hooked - it just has everything you need in a great heart thumping, spine tingling read. The many characters are multi-faceted, the action fast the story never 'dragged' and it's all wrapped up in human emotions and quirky humour. There is a darkness to the story with a strong touch of evil that adds to the tension.
The Beast Horde is fast becoming my favourite series - rollicking good storytelling! Roll on Book 3 please.
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 possibly a solution to their Ghoul Lord problem.
Their journey is not an easy one. With a crumbling world, resources in short supply ( except for a well-stocked sex store, thank you Ms. Silverwood), and the threat of the Lure and Ghoul Lords our band of merry men and women face uncertainty everywhere.
But it's not all doom and gloom. Amidst the threats are some very sexy, kinky moments between our trio of Cyn, Rutger, and Vargr. The bond between these three has definitely evolved.
We also get to meet some new beasters, learn more about the vengeful Ghoul Lord and possibly an answer to who they are. There's, of course, a ton more stuff going on but you need to discover that yourself. This does end on a cliff hanger so be prepared to anxiously wait to find out the fate of our gang and the world. Definitely recommend.
