Publisher's Summary

From the world of Beautiful Creatures - a dangerous new tale of love and magic

Ridley Duchannes is nobody's heroine. She's a Dark Caster, a Siren. She can make you do things. Anything. You can't trust her, or yourself when she's around. And she'll be the first to tell you to stay away - especially if you're going to do something as stupid as fall in love with her.

Lucky for Ridley, her wannabe rocker boyfriend, Wesley "Link" Lincoln, never listens to anyone. Link doesn't care if Rid's no good for him, and he takes her along when he leaves small-town Gatlin to follow his rock-star dream. He teams up with a ragtag group of Dark Casters, and when the band scores a gig at a hot Underground club, it looks like all of Link's dreams are about to come true.

But New York City is a dangerous place for both Casters and Mortals, and soon Ridley realizes that Link's bandmates are keeping secrets. With bad-boy club owner Lennox Gates on her heels, Rid is determined to find out the truth. What she discovers is worse than she could have imagined: Link has a price on his head that no Caster or Mortal can ever pay. With their lives on the line, what's a Siren to do?

Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, the number-one New York Times best-selling coauthors of the Beautiful Creatures novels, are back to cast another magical spell. Their signature blend of mystery, suspense, and romance, with a healthy dose of wit and danger, will pull fans in and leave them begging for more.

What the Critics Say

"In the Gothic tradition of Anne Rice....Give this to fans of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight or HBO's True Blood series."
Praise for the bestselling Beautiful Creatures novels:

"A hauntingly delicious dark fantasy."
"The authors ground their Caster world in the concrete, skillfully juxtaposing the arcane, magical world with Gatlin's normal southern lifestyle....[Fans will] plead for more."
"Gorgeously crafted, atmospheric, and original."
"A lush Southern gothic."
"Smart, textured and romantic."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dangerous Creatures to be better than the print version?

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dangerous Creatures?

    The Fire, and Ridleys job....one was scary the other funny...Ridley is a mess!!


    What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

    I Love her narrations....I have listened to her quite a bit in other series...she is really good!!! I also Like Kevin Collins too!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I hate this question...but this would make a cute movie, if they didn't ruin it like they did beautiful creatures!


    Any additional comments?

    I like this book and hope they continue the series....Ridley is a very complex and interesting character and Link makes me laugh....this whole book kept e interested from beginning to end....and the cliffhanger it ended on has me dying for more...2 thumbs up and a highly recommend!!!

    Story
    "Sorry I listened to the ending - Book 2...?"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The ending was nothing like the beautiful creatures books. I know its just a book, but it still brings tears to my eyes thinking about how it ended. It seems as though a lot of issues are left unresolved, and I would love another couple of books to resolve those issues as well as fix the ending of this book. What's up with the rings? Why don't they get help from family? I am pretty sure the rest of the family was involved in the death of Abraham, and it seems like he would want to take it out on all of them.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Interesting to be inside of Rid's head and get to know her better. Least interesting or most devastating: Even in Death the Bad Guy Wins.


    What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

    Performed well.


    Could you see Dangerous Creatures being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I would watch it, as long as this was season one and there are a lot more seasons to explain what is going on and the end wasn't the end that I am left thinking it is.


    Any additional comments?

    Making this book into a series by adding a second book would improve my rating to five stars.

    "A Siren & Quarter Incubus take on NYC"
    Any additional comments?

    Link and Ridley's story apart from the "Beautiful Creatures" series which I think was a great idea! They definitely have a story to tell. Throughout the "Beautiful Creatures" books, they are on-again/off-again quite frequently. I felt like they needed to just go ahead and make up their minds about each other.

    In this story, they are both headed to NYC for Link to try and make it BIG in a band. Little does he know, Ridley is selling him out to Lennox Gates to pay off a debt she owes from cheating in a game. She thinks she can deliver him and get him out of this mess but this "little siren" is way over her head because she has a bigger bounty on her than she realizes! From the grave, Abraham Ravenwood wants her and Link dead to avenge his death and he is working through Lennox to make sure that happens.

    Along the way, Link and Ridley will fight like they always do. During their "off" time, someone becomes interested in Link because she is so much like him and they work very close together. Ridley will run off because she feels unwanted and unloved...that's how she copes with these feelings and into the arms of Lennox Gates. We learn a lot more about him in this time.

    Silas Ravenwood has been charged with taking over the job for Lennox since he is becoming too soft toward Ridley. They must devise a plan to trick Silas or all 3 of their lives will be on the line.

    The ending is not what I thought it would be. I'm not going to lie...I really want Ridley to be with Lennox because they definitely belong together and I think they both equally love each other. I know, I know...fate has other plans! I'm very curious to see what will happen in the next book.

    I will also say this audible book was awesome because sound effects were used and they actually had music and singing involved as well. I really wish more audible books used those to their disposal because it really enhances the experience of reading!

    "Unsatisfying ending"

    Good narrator. Good writing. However I found the resolution of the story unexpected and unsatisfying. It left a sour taste in my mouth.

    "Interesting "

    Fans of the Beautiful Creatures series will find this new series that explores the consequences of Lena's claiming and how much more dangerous the dark side is when you anger the wrong people.

    "best audible production! Better than reading it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have loved this entire series and this title was no disappointment, it is amazing to hear it as an audio book as it has its own soundtrack and each unique character which helps set the mood for each part. I can not imagine reading the printed version of these books and loving them as much as the audio production, so great. I can not wait for the next part of this spin off series!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Ridley, always have. She's the bad girl that doesn't want to be bad, or at least she won't admit it. fantastic getting to see more of her history, and Shrinky Dink Link:)


    What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    she is one of my favorite narrators so is Kevin T Collins, they are a match made in heaven and do a great job with this series
