Book Description

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 bestselling 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST READ! August 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of the series this is a must read. This is a short novella.... (about 9 short chapters), just pretty much a teaser, BUT VERY good! In order to understand the last book in this series "Beautiful -Chaos" you should read this novella first.
The story is now shifting to Link (aka: Linkubus) who has been turned into a hybrid sucubuss and no one really knows what powers hes capable of. However, Link doesnt seem concerned with being a strange creature he is too busy enjoying all the girls (Savanna Snow included) drooling over his new muscular chest & physical changes. The changes dont stop with Link they also show Ridleys change from a dark caster to a mere mortal! Our Ridley is not taking to human life well so she has some tricks up her sleeve to get some of her powers back and get in a whole heep of troubble along the way! Also, last but not least our lovable uncle Macon!!! He's being really quite about what type of creature he has now become after his return from the dead and quite frankly I dont think he even knows.He starts to take Link under his wing and sends him on some pretty scarey tasks to test his abilities & see if he is up to saving the world. You'll get some Lena and Ethan too; they are finally back together and Ethan is happily sad as the end of days approach Gatlin and the eighteenth moon is growing closer. "A broken day awaits the earth"...

These authors never fail to amaze me in the way they make each charachter so lovable right down to their cute little flaws. They are also super talented at weaving a story that keeps your brain thinking and moving and forgetting the world around you! This was the best $1.99 I spent in a LONG time!

I have NEVER been so enthralled in a series.... Your writing, your characters and the movement of all four books is beyond awesome and so riveting that you cannot put it down... PLEASE tell me you intend to add more books to this series.. I cannot wait to read on...

1.0 out of 5 stars A rip off in my opinion. January 26, 2013
By Amber
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not what I thought it would be. At the end of beautiful chaos they have this story for free. So don't buy this book. I am pretty upset because I thought that there would be so much more to the link story but no. Don't get me wrong it was a good little short story and it explains part of the last book so for sure read it in beautiful chaos but don't buy this. Buy beautiful chaos then you get it for FREE. not pay 1.99.

If u bought the actual book of "Beautiful Chaos" it includes the whole "Dream Dark" story. :(
I purchased "Dream Dark" thinking there would be more chapters to it then what was supposed to be a preview in "Beautiful Chaos" but I was wrong! That will teach me to read the reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars DREAM DARK January 28, 2012
By Tatiana
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dream Dark really helps you fully grasp what is going on with Link after John bites him. How everything is changing for him, and his mom is freaking out. Its a little short, but you really understand whats happening. If you don't like cliffhangers that are never completed howerer, the book may not be the buy you should do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Novella.. BUT February 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Love the caster chronicles and love that the authors gave us an extra glimpse of the world of our fave linkcubus. But... I bought this first thinking I must read it before reading beautiful chaos.. only to find that they give you a copy when you buy beautiful chaos. Definitely worth the read.. just skip purchasing it and buy book 3.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not necessary to follow the story... January 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The side story of Link becoming an Incubus is somewhat interesting, but I don't think it's worth the extra price. It doesn't add any value to the storyline, in my opinion. The character of Link doesn't get much of any new insight, and the characters in the story are not so important (although they do show up later on) that this short story is a valuable addition to the series.

In fact, if you just read the reviews of the book/novella, you will find out EVERYTHING you need to know from the short story, thanks to the Beautiful Creatures crazies out there who will comment and talk about the whole storyline.

Save yourself a couple of bucks and pass on this one and just read the reviews here!
