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 best-selling 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.

The story is awesome. The story occurs between "Beautiful Darkness" and "Beautiful Chaos". A true Casters fan will definitely want to hear it, but don't spend a whole credit on it. Pay the $3.29 instead. Although it says it is 3:23:40 long, the actual story is only 1:15:30 The rest of the time is the first three chapters of "Beautiful Chaos".
I love audible. I discovered it as a solution to my long drive (30mi each way) back and forth to work. This is my down time after work.
Great connection between the books. wish it was longer. i enjoy short stories from other characters point of view in the main story.
This book is actually the first chapters of the next book! You can skip this book and you still get this story!
I have NO time to read so Audible is perfect! I listen while commuting and even at the gym. My interests vary from month to month.
If you like Link then read but I easily could have moved on in the series without reading.
It was fun to hear Link's side of the story. But the story was really short. The majority of the audio is a preview (5 chapters) of Beautiful Chaos. So now I don't want to waste a credit on the next book since I already heard half of it.
The 'Beautiful Creatures' series keeps getting better and better. The characters and plot are exciting and very well defined. Cannot wait for the next one!
Narration: Kevin Collins is definitely growing on me. All of the characters are uniquely identifiable and I love hearing each of them.
Yes. It gives a nice little side story to the main story line
It is good. The only criticism that I have is that the story was way to short. The audio book is mostly the first few chapters of the next book.
All I can say is wow. He is great!!! I will probably get a book or two just because he is the reader. His tonality is easy on the hears. His range of voices is incredible.
No. Because it had a specific purpose to tie in characters for the next book.
Good series, but I didn't realize it was just a short story.
unnecessary to the series storyline, but a nice extra
The Linkubus Lives!
Link, of course, whose story this is. A beautifully rendered tale about what happens to Link after he's bitten by the half breed during his stand with his friends during Beautiful Darkness. Link is his usual funny self (without thinking he's funny) and the dialog between him and Ridley.
When Link is going through the physical changes after being bitten and learning to deal with inordinate strength, trying to deal with his new dietary needs and his mother's suspicions.
No, no extreme reactions but I did laugh, often, because Link is just funny.
This short story was well worth the reading before beginning Beautiful Chaos because it fills in Link's storyline to bring you up to speed for the next book.
I have listened to the first 2 books in this series. This book is labeled 2.5. It is a short book that is a bridge between book 2 and 3. I liked it, because it gave more details about what is happening with Link and Riddley, continues what is happening between Ethan and Lena also. Great information to make some things more clear, before starting book 3.
