Book Review: Dream Dark by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

Dream Dark by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
(Caster Chronicles, #2.5)
Release Date:
Publisher: Little, Brown Books; 75 pages

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.

If you have NOT read BEAUTIFUL CREATURES or BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS please read with caution. There is some spoilers that were unavoidable. Proceed with caution . . .

I love novellas. They usually give us a chance to get a more in depth look at a supporting character and in this case, Ethan Wate's best friend, Wesley Lincoln...aka Link. I absolutely love Link so anything I can get with him in it, I'm game. I would have read this even if it was about Linkubus. Yes, if you haven't read this you're probably looking at me like I'm crazy. Linkubus is a nickname he gave himself and I have to say, I absolutely adore this nickname! He's now a quarter incubus and it's just such a creative, catchy name. It's so Link, as well. It fits his personality perfectly.

This is a book, still told from Ethan's point of view, but about how Link realized what had happened to him at the end of BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS. It's quite amusing and you get to see an inside look at his family life with his nutty mother. We also get to see Link and Macon Ravenwood interact a lot and I think I'm going to like this...friendship? I cannot wait to read BEAUTIFUL CHAOS and I totally see how this would've held over people until it was released!

If you're a fan of this series and want something short, fun and all about Link (for the most part), read this! It's nothing something you'd have to read if you follow the series but it's something fun you should read! If you haven't pick up BEAUTIFUL CREATURES then, well, what are you waiting for? Highly recommend this series!
