From the world of Beautiful Creatures--a dangerous new tale of love and magic continues in the sequel to Dangerous Creatures.
After a disastrous car crash outside New York City, Ridley Duchannes--Dark Caster, Siren, and bona fide bad girl-has gone missing. Her wannabe rocker and quarter Incubus boyfriend, Wesley "Link" Lincoln, was driving, and when he comes to, Ridley is nowhere to be found. The only clue is the giant raven emblazoned on the hood of the truck that hit them, which can mean only one thing: Silas Ravenwood is back. And he has Ridley.
Determined to find her, Link reunites with old friends John Breed and Liv Durand, his New York bandmates, and the mysterious Lennox Gates--who has his own reasons for tracking down Ridley. Together they travel through the Caster Tunnels and the Deep South to New Orleans, where they uncover the truth about the infamous Ravenwood labs and exactly what Silas has been doing within those walls. By the time Link and his friends reach Ridley, she is no longer the Siren they know and love. She's something new. This time, love might not be enough to save them.
In this sequel to Dangerous Creatures, the bestselling spin-off of the #1 New York Times bestselling Beautiful Creatures novels, coauthors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl deliver an intoxicating blend of magic, suspense, and danger.

After the previous book's INSANELY TERRIBLY INFINTELY HORRIBLY AWFUL cliffhanger, I was on pins and needles. Now-well, I've got it! Sooo excited. I have high expectations!!!!!!!
It had been a while since I read the Beautiful Creatures series. I finally picked up the Dangerous Creatures book I borrowed - read that straight through this morning, and had to buy the ebook so I could read this this afternoon! I couldn't walk away! Enough twists and turns to be interesting, and now I must find out if there is more to Ridley's story...
I am so very disappointed in the ending that the authors wrote. I felt cheated, there was no real ending to the story and I have no idea what happened to the characters. Seems like they were in to big of a hurry to have it over and it barely qualified as a novel. More like a short story from 2 period English in high scjool.
AudioBook Review: Stars: Overall 3 Narration: 4 Story: 2 A spin off from the original Beautiful Creatures and Caster Chronicles stories that combined witches, curses, drama and teenaged hormones: tossed them about and spit out some truly fun stories. Each character, love them or hate them, has a personality and a purpose, even if that is just to mix up the action. In this story, following on the heels of Dangerous Creatures, the three main characters of this story: Link, Nox and Ridley all tell their version of the story, the same story in three perspectives. Although, Ridley’s point of view was very limited she was held, drugged and isolated, from the rest. I wanted to see more of Ridley like I knew her – the ultimate instigator, dancing on the edge of irredeemable bad girl. Link has changed and grown through the stories, and he continues to find his way through the new challenges that come up Nox has stepped up and grown in very unexpected ways, and become a star of this story, and I can only expect his role will increase. But this is most certainly NOT a stand alone story: a bit hasty in the construction with an ending that was abrupt and wholly unexpected, this felt more like a filler story, taking Ridley into the dark side and showing her dancing with the idea of embracing what she believes is her nature. There is something missing in this story: a lightness and tightness of plotting, character progression and balance that is not as clear as in other stories. It’s an okay installment, best suited for rabid fans of the series. Narration in this story is provided by Kevin T. Collins and Khristine Hvam: and felt their performances were perfectly suited to the story and characters. Collins managed to bring the emotion and frustration from both Link and Nox to their parts, with a nice change in inflection, pacing, tone and delivery that presents them as distinct entities. Hvam’s performance for Ridley captured her “I don’t give a hoot” attitude anymore, while capturing the stilted, almost stifled emotional impact of these decisions. The narration was certainly the best part of this installment. I received an AudioBook copy of the title from Hachette Audio for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
I can't wait til book three comes out I loved this book
I really liked this one more than the first book. Maybe because it didn't have much of Ridley? Haha, I'm just kidding. There wasn't much on her perspective but when there was, it was interesting on what she was going through. Towards the end, you knew the moment when she was no longer how she used to be. Craziness. I liked that it was more with Link and Nox. Both boys were determined as hell to get to Ridley. I liked how and what they went through to get there and also while they were in the building. Both different journeys but hoping for the same end goals. I am surprised to say the least on the ending. I didn't think it would go that way. It kinda made me a little disappointed...I wanted it to go the other way! But now I'm wondering if there will be more books? Because I need to know what happens!
