Beast Within by Stephanie Barr

There should never have been a space battle, certainly not one that sent my ship full of fleeing children across the whole damn universe. Nor was I prepared to land on a planet I knew nothing about and would never be able to escape. But of all the things I wasn't prepared for, it was to find myself dependent on a tiny group of shapeshifting magic users among the refugees, shapeshifters hated by my own fellow humans and yet the only chance any of us had to survive.

I have now seen the shapeshifters, called the Bete, organize and build when we were still chaos inside my ship, even though we had adults and they didn't. I have seen them repulse the horrific foes that wander this new world. change into fantastic beasts for our protection, and even heal our wounds.

I'm told they are demons and monsters that cannot be trusted, and yet, I have found that our fate relies not only on this group but the leadership and judgment of a boy half my age and many times my power. How am I to hate him? Who is really the beast in this?

The "demon" that saves us or the hatred that divides us?

The "demon" that saves us or the hatred that divides us?

I clearly did not bring enough whisky.

Some language and violence.

Given To Me For An Honest Review Stephanie Barr's book Beast Within (The Bete Book1) is a grab you and hold on until you get to the end. It's a page turner and has a few  twists and turns. If you love science fiction and fantasy then this book is for you. It is about some young refugees that land on a new  planet. Xander and his clan get ready to protect K'Ti from the humans. In this story, you are going to find shifters, aliens, healers, and  bigots. You will also be in some alien worlds and intelligent premise. This book has it all for you. When you get to the end you will be biting the bit for the next book in the series but never fear I am sure it's on its way. I recommend this to all. I do need to let you know  ****WARNING**** There is some language and violence. I am looking forward to more from Stephanie Barr.
