Review

Praise for the bestselling Beautiful Creatures novels:
An Amazon.com Big Books of Spring Selection

"A hauntingly delicious dark fantasy."
Cassandra Clare, New York Times bestselling author of City of Bones



"In the Gothic tradition of Anne Rice....Give this to fans of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight or HBO's True Blood series."
School Library Journal


"Gorgeously crafted, atmospheric, and original."
Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author of Wicked Lovely


"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."
VOYA (starred review)


"A lush Southern gothic."
Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author of Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale



"Smart, textured and romantic."

I have to admit, prior to reading this book I wasn't the biggest Ridley or Link fans. I could still take or leave Link to be honest, but Ridley really grew on me. She's just so harsh and abrasive. While in my mind I knew she hadnt had things very easy, it was hard to remember that when I would see how she would treat others. Now however, after being in her head, I realize just how truly damaged and broken she is. She's in an almost constant battle with herself between her siren nature and what she wanted from her life. It's a struggle to balance her desire to be good with her true nature, and the fact that she cannot trust and good emotions due to her influential nature, well it's utterly heartbreaking. Suddenly it all made sense why she always did things to make people angry with her, negative emotions she could trust to be real, but any affection may not be. And sometimes something real even if it's negative is better than something fake. So that being said, seeing her try to be with Link is painful to watch because you know she's trying so hard, but yet everything keeps falling apart. As I said, Iink's not really my favorite character, but since he has the potential to make Ridley happy, he's alright in my book in the end.

Can I just say that I am 100% over cliffhangers? I mean prior to reading this book I wasn't the biggest fan of them, but this one seals the deal. To me cliffhangers most times feel like a marketing ploy to keep readers coming back. But I'd rather come back because a book sold me on its own merits rather than a driving need to find out what happened after a shocking ending.

Format: Hardcover
Ridley Duchannes is a bad girl, the absolute worst. A siren with enough juice to persuade anyone to do as she bids, she's out for her own. But after losing a poker game, she's in a world of s***e and she can't seem to get out on her own. Wesley "Link" Lincoln just wants to make it big in the big bad city. Off to New York to start a new band (or join a band) on his way to fame and success. Link, though, is a southern gentleman at heart and he also really wants to be with Ridley. Can the two love birds make it work or are they going to crash and burn in NYC?

I've been avoiding writing this particular review because I have only negative things to say. I hate writing negative reviews on books I got just to review. X_X I might as well get it over with, right? Ridley and Link are just the same as they have always been, but we get a few new cast members here. I honestly won't go into details about them because I didn't love any of them and that's part of where this series failed as a spin-off. With Beautiful Creatures (and it sequels) I loved most of the characters and generally wanted their success and happiness. Here I was pretty ambivalent about the new people. Hell, I was even a bit ambivalent about Ridley herself. Her determination to remain a "bad" girl and the idea that it was all she was capable of doing drove me freaking nuts. She refuses to even try to be better. And we all know she is capable of more, but she is just so darn stubborn. It really made me sad because I loved Rid in Beautiful Creatures & Beautiful Darkness.

The only cast member I really loved was Link. Sweet, devoted Link. He should irritate me. He's a pretty stereotypical southern boy, but he's got so much charm that it just works somehow.

I really enjoyed this continuation of the Ridley and Link on and off romance. This has been a long awaited book. All the "Beautiful Creatures" books have been no less than the five star READ I've come to expect from this generic pair of authors. I would urge anyone to read ALL the books in this series. They're incredible!

Ridley and Link are not main characters. They are excellent supporting characters but they just can't pull off a whole story. Up front disclosure, I am an adult who thoroughly enjoyed the Beautiful Creatures books. I could not put them down. This book was a big disappointment. I just couldn't care about Ridley. She is not a character that you can root for and everything seemed really forced. The beginning of the book implies that the other Gaitlin characters will be showing up and I kept reading figuring that the book would get better once the old gang was back together. I'm sure it will happen, it just didn't happen in this book. And the book ends with a cliffhanger. I'm not sure when the next one comes out but I'm not really sure that I care (except that I imagine Lena and Ethan will show up in that book)

If you are a fan or not of the Caster series you must read Dangerous Creatures. What more could you want out of a story that has Link and Ridley in it. Link and Ridley in their off/on relationship go to New York to follow Link's dream of being in a band. What could go wrong with a incubus and a siren well when the siren's name is Ridley then everything. I enjoyed reading Dangerous Creatures. Great spin-off and I cannot wait to read more.
