Something is creeping closer and closer, and it wants...

Five years after the nuclear holocaust, only fifteen people are alive on Earth. Children, teenagers, and adults have banded together in a small town in Georgia - for love, companionship, and survival. 

But now the little community is threatened. One by one they are being taken by - something. But what in God's name is it? What does it want? Why does it take the males first? How can the defenseless survivors stop this sickening, silent thing, this thing beyond the imaginable?


"As spine-tingler's go, 'Beast' is a beauty. Fear keeps pages turning... Hunter seesaws adroitly between eerie moods and the equally unsettling normalcy of a handful of epigoni carrying on daily life. His chapters play like movie scenes, his suspence paced like Hitchcock, his exquisite metaphoric imagery - a baby is born, a tiger swallowtail hatches a rapacious skimmer - evoking Bergman." -Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Post-holocaust novels have practically become a new genre, and this is an unusually good, well observed example." - Publisher's Weekly
