Review: Dream Dark
Title: Dream Dark
Authors: Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Rating: 5/5 stars
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, readers 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.
This was great! Loved Links story and I honestly loved reading so much about Link. Who was talking threw me off a little because I couldn't figure out if it was third person or from Ethan's POV a couple times, but other than that flawless! Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness were a little too wordy for me - things were described too much - but I didn't feel that way at all with this story.
Poor Link. I wish it was longer. It was so short! I think I like learning about Link more than I do Ethan. Made me extremely excited for Beautiful Chaos.
