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".

Do not buy! Skip to next book!

Any additional comments?

This book is actually the first chapters of the next book! You can skip this book and you still get this story!

ok

If you like Link then read but I easily could have moved on in the series without reading.

Any additional comments?

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.

Linkubus is born...

I've already read the rest of the series so I decided to go ahead and come back for this book to hear how Link came to being "Linkubus." It now makes sense when Ethan references Link in his talk with Mr. True Blood and how Link had met him before.

Mediocre in comparison to rest of series

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Absolutely!

What did you like best about this story?

That it picked up where the other novels in the series left off or rather fell in nicely with the rest of the series.

Did Dream Dark: A Beautiful Creatures Story inspire you to do anything?

Love Deeper. REMINDER: Intelligence = sex appeal (the real deal)

Any additional comments?

If you enjoy coming of age love stories, anything supernatural, bro-mances, or YA novels, you should definitely give this series a chance!

Could be better :()

I thought the performance was missing that flare of emotion the book was a long summary of a good book but other then that I really liked it :)
