The BEAST is Back in Paperback!

The Beast of Noor was just released in paperback. He’s left the shadow realm and crept out to haunt the shelves this Halloween season. There will be a book giveaway to some lucky winners to celebrate his release this month.(see more below)

About the Book

Do not wander in the deeps
Where the Shriker’s shadow creeps
When he rises from beneath
Beware the sharpness of his teeth

The Shriker is back hunting those who wander in Shalem Wood. On the night of the dark moon he breaks through the great wind wall with a vengeful hunger that drives him back into the world of men. Finding passage from the Otherworld, he shape-shifts into a great, black dog of monstrous height. In the deeps of Shalem Wood, he howls. And his moon-call is a spell song for those who come to die in his jaws.

When the demon hound comes after Miles’s sister Hanna, Miles determines to go after the beast and kill him before any more blood is shed. But Miles does not know what secret power awaits him in the wood, what transformation he must face to hunt the monster down.

“Be careful when you fight the monsters, lest you become one.” Friedrich Nietzsche

This looks like an exceptional read. I have never seen a fictional book like this for teens ever. It will be a classic for sure! It's the new Twilight. I am usually not into fiction but this is a must read even for me. Janet has a genius idea and I wish the best for her and the book!
