Vargr Reviews

  • Louise H  -  ⭐ Life in the Book Lane Reviews ⭐

    This is the first book of a trilogy, very reminiscent of those early 90's sci-fi books where each book had it's own story arc completed but the main story rolls on in the background. It technically ends on a cliffhanger, but not one of those high drama, soap opera style ones that only work if you actually have the next book to hand. No, this book ends on a tantalisingly teasing note that will have you eagerly awaiting the follow up. Good news is that it

    This is the first book of a trilogy, very reminiscent of those early 90's sci-fi books where each book had it's own story arc completed but the main story rolls on in the background. It technically ends on a cliffhanger, but not one of those high drama, soap opera style ones that only work if you actually have the next book to hand. No, this book ends on a tantalisingly teasing note that will have you eagerly awaiting the follow up. Good news is that it shouldn't be too long before that drops into our avaricious hands.

    Why am I talking so much about how the book ends, for goodness sake! What I need to be doing is telling you about how flipping amazing this book is, how it blends a finely crafted, slightly mysterious and definitely menacing dystopian world with some amazingly awesome and rounded characters and some rough, dirty, hot and kinky sex.

    It's a little lighter than the Machinery of Desire series, a little rougher around the edges than Preyfinders and nowhere near as dark as the Dark Hearts books. But it's still totally

    , which for those of you that don't know is a synonym for excellent, marvellous, magnificent, superb, fine, wonderful, impressive, phenomenal, superior and superlative.

    One can never accuse Ms Silverwood's heroines of being anything less than kick-ass amazing. She writes the ultimate tough cookie gal who likes her men to have impressive qualities (*nudge-wink*) and the wherewithal to use it in any manner they wish, as long as it's depraved and dirty. However they also quite enjoy being dominated and have some submissive tenancies. Cyn however is an apex predator, she might let you "ravish" her (Amazon friendly speak for fuck her four ways to Sunday) but she is going to damn well decide who, when and how. I loved Cyn. Bloody loved her and her bug eating ways.

    Vargr and Rutger are HAWT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry but I just felt I had to put that out there. They're also well hung, and know what to do with that slab of man meat. However they have a conscience. They are men of morals, occasionally those morals are a little dubious but they have them nonetheless. Doesn't stop them being kinky buggers either.

    Oh yes and I've not even mentioned the strangely amorphous and totally creepy Ghoul Lords yet. Those mo-fo's need taking down big time. I'm into tentacle porn as much as the next girl (and definitely Cyn with her strategic tattoo) but they are enough to totally ruin the experience for me. I'm also rather taken by Mo too, even if IT IS SHAPED LIKE A GOD DAMN FRIGGING SPIDER. Sodding hell does Ms Silverwood enjoy torturing her arachnophobe readers, the evil woman that she is. I can just picture her now, cackling away like some demented person, smugly creating a cute little robot for us to love, and then making it into a creature from our nightmares!

    Oops, I appear to have gone off piste and get slightly ever so side-tracked. So back to

    . Don't buy this book if you only like sci-fi that isn't really sci-fi but where the story could actually be transplanted into a mafia, or MC, or western setting and still work. Don't buy this book if you like delicate flower heroines or alpha-hole heroes who only have depth when they look in a mirror. Because I'm afraid you will be disappointed by this multi-layered story of genuinely not-quite-human individuals and the adventures that befall them. If you do like a sci-fi romance that's actually sci-fi then snap this up like a hot cake and enjoy.

    How does Cari manage to create yet another world just like that?

    With all the details you need to be in that world? To live there?

    With not just one,but two! heroes with extra bits only she can come up with?

    With a heroine that is badass,even without knowing she has extra bits?

    And with an evil enemy with bits that make me cringe thís time?

    I am in awe,truelly i am!

    And it’s not because she is só generous to give me an ARC!

    NOPE. No sir,no ma’am!

    She ís my Mistress of Evil Kinkiness,and i worship all of that unique Kinkiness!

    Waking up from a pleasant dream to find your orifices filled with a Ghoul Lord’s tentacles is enough to make any girl run screaming to the hills.

    If she managed to escape,that is,and so far none ever has.....

    Until Cyn.

    When she found the predicament she was in,she díd break free.

    Even took a piece of tentacle before she jumped over the edge of the roof of that very high building they were on.

    Only,once she caught the ledge of a lower floor,it didn’t hold......an she tumbled down at an alarming speed.

    Enter Vargr,and the details she saw as he caught her,were enough to make her drool.

    That was before she saw the large wings attached to his back....now those were interesting,too.

    Blue eyes,a body to die for,mán was she in trouble!

    Adding to the trouble was the tube stuck in her abdomen,hurting like hell....

    Before her newfound hero could stop her,she pulled that thing out,and he had to hurry to stop the bleeding somehow.

    He senses something in her,and her memory loss prevents her from finding any answers.

    So,he decides to take her home,to his horde.

    Along the way,the Lure the Ghoul Lords use to draw humans,grabs a hold of Cyn,and the only thing that can stop it,is.....

    From there on,Cyn is his,period.

    She can protest all she likes,but she is his.

    That is....just his,or are there others that......?

    What happens,you ask?

    Why do you stop now?

    Please tell more.....

    All i wíll say is,if you know Cari,you know there are twists and evil turns,because her villains are EVIL.

    And you know her heroines are as hotblooded as her heroes.

    Expect delicious,kinky,mindblowing, hot sexcapades that’ll make you want to grab a hero of your own and try it all out......

    Now if i could only convince Cari to lend me Vargr,just for a day.....and Rutger,maybe?

    Because he’s next.

    And i can’t wait!

    One of the best things about this author is her ability to create a world that is unlike anything else that I have read. Regardless, of the series, each world is always different. She does not ever regurgitate the tried and true from her previous book and seems to like the challenge of starting from scratch.

    One of the best things about this author is her ability to create a world that is unlike anything else that I have read. Regardless, of the series, each world is always different. She does not ever regurgitate the tried and true from her previous book and seems to like the challenge of starting from scratch. There are some elements that are the same; a fierce female that take no names, well-endowed heroes that defy what any normal nether region should be equipped to handle, and painful sex with a touch of BDSM. What more can a reader ask for?

    From the first page, I couldn't help but think that this author continues to push my comfort zone. Which, is ironic because this is definitely not as hardcore as some of her other books. Yet, anytime tentacles are brought into the mix and that there is a possibility that the villain has the capacity to eat whoever is on the other end of one of the tentacle appendages and I am instantly questioning if she might have finally gotten even more extreme in her writing. The answer to that is no. To be honest, I am not sure there is anything that can push me to not enjoying this author.

    I enjoyed the stellar characters and story as I usually do. Even though this story is unique and has great potential as the series progresses it is not my favorite that this author has written. I didn't fully get one hundred percent invested in the story. However, that is not to say that this still wasn't good. I would still recommend this for anyone that likes to dip their toes in the sci-fi world with naughty steam thrown in. Trust me when I say that this author will never let you down.

    This story grabbed my interest from page one. I LOVE the characters and how they interact with each other and themselves. The plot, fascinatingly perplexing and superbly intriguing, concerns the ultimate destruction/salvation of Earth and its survivors.

    Ghoul Lords have taken over the world. Humans are lured to gruesome deaths. Beasters have been created to allow survival. Somehow, Cyn, who seems to be part human, was able escape the tentacles of the Ghoul Lords. Vargr, a Beaster, helps rescue

    Ghoul Lords have taken over the world. Humans are lured to gruesome deaths. Beasters have been created to allow survival. Somehow, Cyn, who seems to be part human, was able escape the tentacles of the Ghoul Lords. Vargr, a Beaster, helps rescue her, but is not quite sure what to make of her. She seems human, but with some traits most “normal” humans do not possess. He is attracted to her, and she to him. They decide to investigate her uniqueness.

    I could go into more detail, but that would lead to spoilers. The only way to truly appreciate this story is to meet the unusual characters and then carefully read each and every detail. By the way, the sex scenes are beautifully alluring, erotic and enticing enough for me to want more. Read and enjoy.

    This has got to be my favourite to date of this authors work.

    I bloody adored this like so much and am now gagging for my next fix of this amazingly addictive story, thankfully that's not too long as the next ones out mid-December.

    This was such an exciting and interesting premise a sort of post-apocalyptic sci-fi with smexy bits.

    Set against a post-apocalyptic landscape in the aftermath of an alien invasion, Ghoul Lords have conquered the planet and are using the human race for breeding and food.

    Set against a post-apocalyptic landscape in the aftermath of an alien invasion, Ghoul Lords have conquered the planet and are using the human race for breeding and food.

    Keeping them enraptured and contained with the Lure a sort of thrall.

    In a last-ditch attempt at fighting back, the beast horde was created a genetically engineered experiment to produce superior human warriors spliced with unknown DNA.

    At this moment this horde and limited humans are all that's left of humanity and they are now hiding in the shadows from the Ghoul Lords just attempting to survive.

    Cyn a human of unknown origins awakens from the Lure, finding herself on the roof and a prisoner of the alien overseers she becomes the first to ever break free fleeing and damaging a ghoul lord in the process.

    Falling from up-high she is rescued and plucked from the sky by a winged saviour.

    Vargr is one of these engineered experiments and to keep her safe from the lure bondmates her before taking her home to his tribe.

    well, this was all sorts of fabulous and I enjoyed this immensely.

    We are introduced into this imaginative world gradually with zero info dump and this story unfolds with Cyn, Vargr and also some Rutger (another Beast fascinated with Cyn) all taking there turn centre stage.

    This had just the right balance between action and heat I also really appreciated the character dynamic, the encounters here sizzled with there intensity spotlighting the incredibly chemistry.

    I also especially liked the dub-con play between the characters this was all sorts of hot hot hot.

    There was so much going on here in terms of story direction and mystery and this managed to capture my attention completely.

    I liked where this went and how we left things and my god that thrilling finale was all sort of edge of your seat.

    Ever so excited about this new series and this introduction into it was brilliant from start to finish.

    This was a five star read all the way and is one I highly recommend it was a non-stop addictive journey and there wasn't one thing here that I actually disliked.

    I voluntary reviewed a copy of Vargr (Beast Horde #1).

    Ms Silverwood's writing voice has her very own, strange kind of poetry. In describing their journey through a world that has turned hostile to humans, she creates words that best transport the feelings, the circumstances she describes.

    She even invented her own brand of onomatopoeia, borrows words from every kind of subject to paint a picture that perfectly fits her narrative.

    This is another one of her wildly inventive, mind boggling stories. And there's more to come!!!

    The characters are fantastic and very unique (each in their own way). Cyn is an enigma and not quite like the others - is she human or part of the beast horde. We slowly get to learn more about Cyn as the story unfolds. Right now we know she is one kickass female who has two very big and sexy beasts wanting her. Vargr saved her and wants her for his own. Rutger is also very attracted to her and would like to share. These three together are going to be a powerful trio that will become unstoppable in this unique world. Their interactions are extremely volatile, explosive and combustible! And let’s not forget - utterly panty melting too! So much sexiness!

    This story was amazing from beginning to end. It is a roller coaster ride of epic proportions that you can’t look away from! This phenomenal author knows just how to make us crave more of her words and squirm in our seats while reading them! I can’t wait to read the next part of this story! AMAZING!

    This dystopian book made me giggle through a large portion, with its cheeky references to tv shows, a certain movie about aliens living as humans on Earth, and an author who is making his fans wait years for a sequel to his series (among other things) This story is about an alien invasion, years after the world has been decimated. It's a very unusual take on the genre, making it a memorable entry in this group of novels.

    Silverwood created Beasts that were artificially enhanced to save the world. Unlike most plots in this style of story, the Beasts fail in their mission. This is not a spoiler, as it's stated toward the beginning of the story. Cyn literally drops into Vargr's lap, and an adventure is born.

    I loved the concept of the Lure. Frightening and possible, the Lure is the aliens greatest weapon. Messing with the minds, they use the Lure to enslave and conquer. I loved the "specialness" of Cyn's gift in relation to the Lure.

    These Beasts are big, strong, with varying abilities that none of them truly understand. And these Beasts are constantly reminded of the comforts of old that are gone now. It's a huge part of the book that grounds this alien tale with a true humanity. We discover that sex with Beast cures the Lure, at least temporarily. I don't know if Silverwood meant to be subversive here, but it sure seems that way to me! Imagine the day that having sex CURES the STD? Lol.

    We learn very little about Cyn and her abilities, because she just doesn't remember or understand. Clearly there's a government conspiracy at work, but the extend of it? Who knows.

    Some memorable quotes:

    "Vargr drew a deep breath and kept on walking. He really had a problem. Not enough females to #$& was going to make his balls burst. Wow. I’m a poet too. "

    Banzai! Gung ho! Yippee-ki-yay, mother$%&! Avidex rather liked using the terminology of whatever planet they’d captured.

    A raspberry would be her response next time he asserted his ownership. Loud and clear raspberry. Check.

    "“Anyway, Vargr and I have bonded. I am his and he is mine. You know? Love in the apocalypse etcetera.”"

    He looked more like the leader than what he truly was—the outnumbered representative of another tribe. His horns were twice as wide as his head, and as grand as a twirling ballerina. Seen this close, the blueness on the horns seemed to vibrate the air about them. Specks drifted outward only to be extinguished as if they were embers dying in the cool air.

    Danger, Will Robinson. Least they’d remade that show before the invasion. So many series he’d never binge watch ever again. If anything made him sad about the demise of humankind, it was that.

    What else were men for except to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous women?

    Who’d have thunk it? The main disadvantage of the Apocalypse was a lack of pizza.

    Silverwood also touched on environmental concerns without being preachy, which makes this the most well rounded apocalypse book I've ever enjoyed reading. She's an intellectual writer who's not afraid to let her freak flag fly here. Who else could quote Shakespeare and wax poetic about a spiked member? Warning, cliffhanger, but Cyn is such an amazing character that you will want to learn more. A rebel female that demands your attention and elicits nothing but awe.

    Well Ms. Silverwood has written a fantastic post-apocoliptic, erotic, alien invasion, genetically modified soldiers, humans on the verge of extinction epic story!

    Living in the shadows and hiding from the invaders/Ghoul Lords and their "Lure" the Beasters, failed to conquer the invaders, and now they hide in the shadows. Now they are the protectors of the last humans. Gifted with various and extreme nano modifications each Beaster bears their own unique set of features, horns, wings and more

    Well Ms. Silverwood has written a fantastic post-apocoliptic, erotic, alien invasion, genetically modified soldiers, humans on the verge of extinction epic story!

    Living in the shadows and hiding from the invaders/Ghoul Lords and their "Lure" the Beasters, failed to conquer the invaders, and now they hide in the shadows. Now they are the protectors of the last humans. Gifted with various and extreme nano modifications each Beaster bears their own unique set of features, horns, wings and more taken from the beasts of fantasy and lore.

    No one escapes the "above" where the Ghoul Lords breed and consume the humans Lured to their fate.

    But Cyn escaped, Cyn is the only one to do so and to cause major harm on her way "down".

    Vargr literallly caught her in mid air, her Knight with wings. Cyn is a woman of mystery to herself and all those she comes in contact with, she has lost years of memories to the Lure. Still tempted by the Lure, the cure is hot, erotic sex with a Beaster and Vargr is happy to be her medication. Once "mated" they are unable to want or be with others.....or are they? Rutger another Beaster is a form of temptaion that creates new issues and new possibilities for these two or three....

    Humans are getting a taste of what they have done to the planet and to numerous species from the invaders, on the tipping point of extinction will humans survive as we know them...or will they have hidden gifts/curses like Cyn and the Beasters and become a new form of humankind, if they can survive?

    Packed with action, adventure, violence, fantasy, sex, fantastic characters and a story that will keep you hooked to the last page and beyond this is an absolute must read! Unique, original and intruiging, well done!!

    Cyn has no memory of the five years she was at the Top where the Ghoul Lord consumes humans. Being the only human to ever escape from the top, she is an enigma. On her fall from up high, she is caught by a winged man, a Beaster named Vargr who realizes how unique Cyn is and is attracted to her even though she is one tough cookie.

On her fall from up high, she is caught by a winged man, a Beaster named Vargr who realizes how unique Cyn is and is attracted to her even though she is one tough cookie. When the "Lure" comes upon Cyn, Vargr calms her with sex, who knew sex was the cure? During their travels to meet up with Vargr's Tribe, they come upon an older lady that is zombie like and Cyn finds she can remove the Lure. They have to find out what Cyn really is and how to use her abilities while she is still being watched by a few other entities. We get to meet other humans and other Beasters with Rutger being one of them. Sex seems to work well for getting control over Cyn whenever the Lure affects her and Rutger joins in to help her with Vargr. There is a lot going on in this post apocolypse world and many unique people and "things" to meet along their travels. I am looking forward to the next books due soon, and hope they answer the many questions I have about the people, Beasters and bots involved. Little Mo is our mechanical friend as most of Cari's sci-fi stories seem to usually have at least one in them. In the end, this keeps you turning the pages and always hoping for more information as we are entertained by the characters and situations they find themselves in and of course the wild, passionate sex.
