It has been days since Lily killed the vampire responsible for her brutal attack. Now she and Wolf have been summoned by the Society to answer for her actions. Standing before the Regent, she learns she has tipped the human and supernatural scales. A new vampire is required to restore balance.
When she hears the penalty for her crime, Wolf protectively steps in and accepts a dangerous task in exchange for her freedom. He must find the rogue vampire who has been slaughtering citizens in their territory or risk losing Lily to the Society. And he only has days to do it.
As the night of reckoning fast approaches, Lily finds an unlikely advocate in a centuries-old, seductive vampire named Athene who gives her an ominous warning. Athene knows secrets about Wolf she won't divulge, which only complicates the mysterious revelation Lily has recently discovered about herself.
Screams, growls, and cries echo throughout the darkest, desolate streets of the city. The final showdown determines who is predator and who will become prey. One thing remains certain-no one escapes the night unscathed.
Beast is the much anticipated sequel to Predator & Prey by James D Horton.

Beast by James D. Horton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
There is a Beast in all of us, but the Vampires are trying to bring theirs into submission by forming a Society and treating the city’s night dwellers like cattle. And, in this dystopian, not to far distant future, a night time radio show host finds herself, oddly, befriended by a long Wolf, of the very creatures she has been warning the city’s night dwellers about.
In this second of his Predator and Prey series, James D Horton again enthralls us with an entirely different take on the vampire vs. human battle.
We find Lily standing trial for murder and receiving a sentence that Wolf tries to refute. He is successful - but Lily is caught in the crossfire. Will he save her or let her die? What will become of Wolf’s Beast?
This is an amazing read, as I turned each page; I was never sure what was going to happen. I alternately cheered Wolf on and cursed his name; I found courage in Lily that belonged in a supernatural being, not a human. Althene, who takes Lily under her wing, is like an avenging angel with an agenda – when will we find out what that agenda is? I am looking forward to the next story in the series – Control.
