~* 4 Stars for Big Bad Beast by Shelly Laurenston *~

This is a pretty good shifter series but if you haven’t read the 5 before this then you will be completely lost on characters/shifterspecies etc. I didn’t realize this was the 6th book in the series when I started it, or else I wouldn’t have read it. 

The two main characters in this series are Dee Ann Smith and Ulrich Van Holtz aka Ric. Dee Ann and Ric are from enemy packs and are taught from a small age to stay away from each other or anyone in the enemy pack. In Dee Ann’s case her father always told her if she ever came across a “Smith” to start the killings.

Later on in the series they are both in their twenties and Dee Ann and Ric work together in the Group. Basically, the Group works together to protect all species of shifters, even Hybrids.

There are a bunch of murders of Hybrids going on and Dee Ann gets assigned to the case, along with two other women. They are working together to try and find out who’s sponsoring these fight clubs, where hybrid shifters are getting killed. They want to find the main person responsible for the fight clubs so they can shut the groups down.

I enjoyed Dee Ann’s character, as she’s a tough chick who doesn’t take crap and she terrifies most of the people who are in the book. She’s not really good with people skills unless it involves intimidation tactics but even with her brass personality you can tell she is loyal and has a good heart.

Ric Van Holtz is a chef for his own, well established restraints, part of the head for the Group, and a hockey player. He’s a really sweet guy who completely loves Dee Ann and knows exactly what she needs in a mate. He had some good character traits but he didn’t really strike me as an Alpha, more like a Beta but I guess Dee Ann is enough of an Alpha for both of them.

This is a great read if you like Shifter books, but you definitely need to read the other 5 books to be able to follow this series.

I did receive this book for Free to give my honest review. This did not affect the rating on the book and my rating/review is strictly my own opinion. 

Rated 4 of 5 by Paranormal Addicts
