The Beast Within by Clive Gilson - FREE Download

The Beast Within
Blurb (from Goodreads):
In this series of eBooks, starting with The Beast Within, you'll meet the Gambling Man and wonder why your soul feels as though its been yanked from its moorings...

...the Countess and the Mechanic will make you look again at things spectral that you thought you already knew...

...and then there's the Marchese, once a friend of the infamous Cesare Borgia and still going strong in the twenty-first Century.

Beasts Within continues Clive's development of tales rooted in the darkly fantastic hearts of the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Anderson, introducing new characters and new twists to themes that Clive has written successfully about for many years now.

The Beast Within by Clive Gilson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Beast Within(Source: Downloaded for free from Smashwords.)
Very short story about a man whose wife has recently died from breast cancer, and how alone he now feels. Very short, and nothing really happens as such, the man just sort-of thinks about how much he misses his wife. I assume that this story is continued in the next book in this series.
6 out of 10.

  1. Sounds pretty depressing. I don't think I will get it.

  2. Is it kind of like a memoir or journal of his thoughts? I enjoy an intense story but not one that doesn't seem finished.

    1. I kind-of got the impression that it's just a story thats been serialised, or published chapter by chapter or something? This author has so many books available on smashwords I can only assume that that is the idea with this one. I may have to read the next one to find out!
