From the back cover...

When Link joined his best friend, Ethan Wate, on a quest through a mysterious network of underground passageways endlessly crisscrossing the South, he knew the journey would be dangerous. But returning home to Gatlin, South Carolina was just the beginning...

Wounded during a climactic battle, Link discovers that tending his injuries won't be as simple as visiting a doctor and that healing his arm should be the least of his worries. For being bitten by a Supernatural does more than break the skin -- it changes a person, inside and out, turning Link into someone more and more like the dark creature who injured him.

In this never-before-seen short story by New York Times bestselling authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, listeners witness Link's heart-racing transformation. Dream Dark is set before the much-anticipated third Beautiful Creatures novel, Beautiful Chaos, and as a special bonus includes an exclusive sneak peek at the first five chapters.

My Review

Dream Dark is a short novella, but an integral part of the Beautiful Creatures series.  This series focuses largely on Link, Ethan’s best friend whom I love.  The forward motion of the series-level plot doesn’t advance too much, the focus being on Link and his story.  But learning about Link was more than sufficient!

Things to love about Dream Dark

  • Link.  A supporting role within the series, yes, but one that is integral to Ethan’s character as well.  He is funny and fun-loving and a spark of light in a story line that is often rather dark.
  • The bromance.  I love the friendship between Ethan and Link.  They compliment each other and their is unwavering support and loyalty.

Things I wanted more of…

  • n/a

My Recommendation

This novella is a link between the first half and the last half of the series and a must read for fans of the series!
