Description-

  • From the world of Beautiful Creatures--the instant New York Times bestselling tale of love and magic.
    Ridley Duchannes is nobody's heroine. She's a Dark Caster, a Siren. She can make you do things. Anything. You can't trust her, or yourself when she's around. And she'll be the first to tell you to stay away—especially if you're going to do something as stupid as fall in love with her.
    Lucky for Ridley, her wannabe rocker boyfriend, Wesley "Link" Lincoln, never listens to anyone. Link doesn't care if Rid's no good for him, and he takes her along when he leaves small-town Gatlin to follow his rock-star dream. He teams up with a ragtag group of Dark Casters, and when the band scores a gig at a hot Underground club, it looks like all of Link's dreams are about to come true.
    But New York City is a dangerous place for both Casters and Mortals, and soon Ridley realizes that Link's bandmates are keeping secrets. With bad-boy club owner Lennox Gates on her heels, Rid is determined to find out the truth. What she discovers is worse than she could have imagined: Link has a price on his head that no Caster or Mortal can ever pay. With their lives on the line, what's a Siren to do?
    Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, the #1 New York Times bestselling coauthors of the Beautiful Creatures novels, are back to cast another magical spell. Their signature blend of mystery, suspense, and romance, with a healthy dose of wit and danger, will pull fans in and leave them begging for more.

    This spinoff/continuation of the supernatural Beautiful Creatures (2009) world focuses on bad-girl Siren Ridley Duchannes.The summer after the Gatlin, South Carolina, crew graduates high school, they share one last night of bonding before going their separate ways. Link's created a hilarious religious-college hoax as cover for heading to New York City in pursuit of musical stardom. Ridley, Link's on-again, off-again girlfriend, hitches a ride with him out of town-he thinks it's for love, but she has her own agenda. At a Caster underworld club called Suffer, she lost a high-stakes game of Liar's Trade. She owes a band a new drummer-luckily, Link is a drummer in need of a band-and to club owner Lennox Gates she owes one marker. Paying one debt, Ridley hooks up Link with the band-he gets on great with them, they not so much with her-and then tries to live as a regular person to please Link, who grows ever more suspicious of her secretive behavior. Sections related from Lennox's perspective reveal dead antagonist Abraham Ravenwood's plots against the heroes from beyond the grave. Readers new to Stohl and Garcia's world, even those who have read the original novels but not the Dangerous Dreams novella e-book, may be disoriented despite the slow pace. Overall, the characters charm, and for hooked readers, the ending promises a sequel.Prickly yet endearing Ridley makes a sturdy anchor for this expansion of the Caster world; fans will be pleased.
