Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Awesome story, but way to short"
    What did you like best about Dream Dark: A Beautiful Creatures Story? What did you like least?

    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.

    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.

    "Interesting, but not worth the money"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    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.

    "Awesome!"

    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.

    "Don't waste your credit or money on this one"

    Don't waste your time on this one. It's just 1 hour about the first few days if Linc's transformation into a Inkubus, then it's the first 5 chapters of book 3. I recommend skipping this one and go straight to the 3rd book.

    Story
    "Way Too Short"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. It gives a nice little side story to the main story line


    If you’ve listened to books by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl before, how does this one compare?

    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.


    What about Kevin T. Collins’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Do you think Dream Dark: A Beautiful Creatures Story needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. Because it had a specific purpose to tie in characters for the next book.

    "note that it is a short story, not a novel"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Good series, but I didn't realize it was just a short story.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    n/a


    Did Kevin T. Collins do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    accent


    Any additional comments?

    unnecessary to the series storyline, but a nice extra

    Story
    "Linkubus Lives!"
    If you could sum up Dream Dark: A Beautiful Creatures Story in three words, what would they be?

    The Linkubus Lives!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, no extreme reactions but I did laugh, often, because Link is just funny.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
