The Gentak Corporation has implemented
a mandatory weekend retreat at Camp Arikaree for a group of
their female employees. The womenís positions at Gentak
range from up and coming executives to administrative
What follows next for the very diverse
group of women will become the stuff of nightmares for some,
an altered existence for others and death for a few more.
Future executives Hillary and Dimitra
and assistant Carol hike into the woods with their assigned
groups early on their first day, never imaging what will
happen to them next. Once inside the forest they are met by
beings escaped from Hell intent on impregnating the women
with their demon seed. The women also meet the Guardians
who are there to protect and defend them. No one will leave
the forest unscathed Ė some will never leave at all while
others are destined for an unimaginable horror. Itís going
to be a Hell of a weekend.
The Nature of the Beast
is unlike any romance you could possibly imagine. Author
Ciarra Sims has built an intricate story with all that we
would expect at Camp Arikaree and an entire other world as
well. Females are the focus in this tale, although there
are a few male exceptions such as Alan and Gauron. I canít
say too much without giving up some of the surprises and
twists. The Nature of the Beast has several
romances, loads of sex both normal and bizarre, plus it
leaves an opening at the end for more tales to come.
The Nature of the Beast is a dark, brooding fantasy
teetering on horror but I admit that I couldnít put it
down. I wanted to know what happened next with these
intriguing characters. The Nature of the Beast
drags you into the tale and doesnít let go, ever.
