A new series returns to the world of Beautiful Creatures. Some loves are cursed...others are dangerous.
Ridley Duchannes will be the first to tell you that she's a bad girl. She's Dark. She's a Siren. You can never trust her, or even yourself when she's around. Lucky for her, Wesley "Link" Lincoln can never seem to remember that; quarter Incubus or not, his heart is Mortal when it comes to Ridley. When Link heads to New York City to start a music career, Ridley goes along for the ride-and she has her own reasons. As if leaving small-town Gatlin for the big city, trying to form a band, and surviving life with a partially reformed Siren isn't hard enough already, Link soon learns he has a price on his head that no Caster or Mortal can ever pay.
Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, the #1 New York Times bestselling coauthors of Beautiful Creatures, are back and casting another magical spell. Their signature mixture of mystery, suspense, and romance, along with a dash of fun and danger, will pull fans in and leave them begging for more.
One word: Wow. What a cliffhanger, and next book not out till 2015, how am I supposed to wait that long after ending like that? That was most unexpected ending I came across and it was hard for me to believe that it’s how the first book ending. Garcia & Stohl know how to suck you into a story and to crave for more. How can you not? How can you not wonder what happens to Ridley & Link next? I am. That wasn’t an ending I even saw happening. I am eager for next book to be out already so can see what happens next. Dangerous Creatures wasn’t what I expected it to be, it was breathtaking.
I loved Caster Chronicles series and through the series I grew fond of Link and Ridley, their relationship and always wondered if there was more to their story. When I came across Dangerous Creatures while at library and realized that it was about Ridley and Link I was excited and checked out a book right away. I didn’t think that it would be as good as original series, though I learned to like Ridley, wasn’t her biggest fan. I was wrong, it was as good as the first series, I found myself pulled into Ridley & Link’s story, I found myself wondering if they could escape it all, if there were escape from it. Towards the end of the book, my feelings towards Ridley changed; it was hard to not like her anymore. How can you dislike someone after everything that she went through? I couldn’t. It was a side of Ridley I never seen before, never thought I would.
I wanted to dislike Lennox and at first I did, but as story progressed, the more time he spent with Ridley; it was clear how he felt about her. That made it hard to dislike him, I was sure that he was the bad guy in all of this. After everything he did, putting himself in danger, to protect her, it’s clear to anyone how he feels about her. I do hope that he makes it, especially after all that trouble he went through. I did hope she end up with Link, it’s clear how much he loves her. Even after the break up, the fight he was there for her when she needed him, he was there to protect her from harm. How can you not like someone like that? Why can’t all guys be like him? That’s why ending made me sad, had me wondering : What’s next?
Dangerous Creatures is filled with magic, action, suspense and a bit of romance. If you are fan of Caster Chronicles, it’s a spin off series worth checking out.
