Publisher's Summary

Dream Dark: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!* 

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-heard 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. 

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Great immersive experience

I haven't listened to these Beautiful Creatures stories before. I wasn't sure about the narrator at the start but I really liked the background music and effects from the Booktrack.

Link's heart-racing transformation

What made the experience of listening to Dream Dark: A Beautiful Creatures Story the most enjoyable?

The combination of a very interesting story, impeccable narration and a wonderful mood-enhancing sound track made this a very enjoyable experience.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dream Dark: A Beautiful Creatures Story?

The description of Link's metamorphosis into Linkubus or an incubus.

Which scene was your favorite?

Getting an up close look at a day in the life of Link, including subpar biscuits and white gravy. Oh, no, not white gravy!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Link's mom drags him to see the doctor and have Link tested for steroid abuse. Especially when a parent thinks their child has been doing something wrong and/or not healthy.

Any additional comments?

The sound track was perfect for the atmosphere of this book.

Why the background music?

The story was good enough, but what was with the constant background music? I found it unnecessary and distracting. This is not a movie.
