Dangerous Creatures: Review


A new series returns to the world of Beautiful Creatures. Some loves are cursed...others are dangerous.

Ridley Duchannes will be the first to tell you that she's a bad girl. She's Dark. She's a Siren. You can never trust her, or even yourself when she's around. Lucky for her, Wesley "Link" Lincoln can never seem to remember that; quarter Incubus or not, his heart is Mortal when it comes to Ridley. When Link heads to New York City to start a music career, Ridley goes along for the ride-and she has her own reasons. As if leaving small-town Gatlin for the big city, trying to form a band, and surviving life with a partially reformed Siren isn't hard enough already, Link soon learns he has a price on his head that no Caster or Mortal can ever pay.

Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, the #1 New York Times bestselling coauthors of Beautiful Creatures, are back and casting another magical spell. Their signature mixture of mystery, suspense, and romance, along with a dash of fun and danger, will pull fans in and leave them begging for more.


I may not be a big fan of The Caster Chronicles, but I certainly like this book. The never-ending wit and fun and the shockingly vulnerable moments made my day.

This book is a spin-off of Beautiful Creatures. It's about Ridley Duchannes, and if you have read Beautiful Creatures before, you certainly know that she's the ultimate bad girl. A Dark Caster. A Siren. But then if you have read Beautiful Chaos, something about her isn't as simple as a Dark and cause chaos. I love her complexity because she's so dedicated to be Dark yet she's not as Dark as she thought she was. Her wit is awesome too, and I would like to have her attitude, that no one can boss her around and she makes her decisions. I kinda want to be that independent and strong girl. 

There's also Link, the kinda goofy yet sweet ex-boyfriend of Ridley. We get to see a lot more of him in Dangerous Creatures. However, I don't know what to say about him. He's sweet and caring and stronger in mind too. But that's about it. He's a little too two-dimensional to me. And though I still ship Link and Ridley, I ship Nox and Ridley more.

Oh, and speaking of Nox, he's gotta be my favorite character in this book. Lennox Gates, Dark Caster extraordinaire, and the penultimate person you should be meeting. But then his emotions runs deeper than his Darkness, and oh, there are a lot of really sweet moments of Nox and Ridley. I really want to see more of Nox in the sequel, if there's one.

Dangerous Creatures has seriously exceeded my expectations and I enjoy this book very much. I hope there's a sequel so that I will see more of it.

Rating: 7.5/10
