But when Dark Caster Ridley makes an appearance, the sometime bad girl can't resist picking a fight with her sometime boyfriend, Link. Angry and rebellious as ever, Ridley ends up alone in New York City and becomes entangled in the dangerous underground Caster club scene, where the stakes are high and losers pay the ultimate price.Where's a Linkubus when you need him?
I liked the BEAUTIFUL CREATURES series okay but was never a HUGE fan of it. My favorite characters just happened to be Link and Ridley so when I saw this novella I thought I would give it a shot. Sadly it did not do much for me. The short time it showed Link was very disappointing and Ridley just wasn't that interesting for me. She was a little over the top. I found the pacing to be slow and could not connect with the characters or the plot in anyway. The entire story felt like if someone had been reading it to me it would be mono-tone.
In my opinion this should have just been a part of DANGEROUS CREATURES due to come out and was a pointless novella. Unfortunately it didn't amp me up to dive into DANGEROUS CREATURES, it just solidified my thoughts that these books and writing are not for me. BUT I do feel this is just my opinion, I think big fans of BEAUTIFUL CREATURES will thoroughly enjoy this book and will want to dive into this new series with the way this novella ended.
Are you a big fan of the Beautiful Creatures series? Are you looking forward to this book?
