Dangerous Dream by Kami Garcia
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Disclosure: I was given this ebook free in order to conduct my review. That doesn't change my opinion of it.
Dangerous Dream is precursor to the spin off series from Beautiful Creatures rightly named Dangerous Creatures setting the stage for the return to Gatlin. From the first page you are swept back into the relationships and characters of Beautiful Creatures, with the southern drawl and complicated,but ordinary life. Although, they make a cameo in Dangerous Dream, the story doesn't follow the relationship of Lena Duchannes and Ethan Wate, but rather pushes sub-characters Westley Lincoln aka Link and Ridley Duchannes into the forefront. These two interesting characters shared one of the more explosive relationships in Beautiful Creatures and nothing less can be expected from Dangerous Dream.
In Dangerous Dream Ridley's volatile nature and Link's ever insistent love for her, pushes her into her own self inflicted exile. Trying to fight what she feels for Link, which she feels is inherently against her Siren nature Ridley gets herself into a precarious game that she isn't quite as prepared for as she may have thought.
With Ridley being my favorite character from Beautiful Creatures it's easy to imagine why I would love to see a book more centered on her. From the complex nature of her good gone bad nature to the internal battle she always seemed to have with being true to her feelings, Ridley is the kind of character I love to hate and hate to love. As if my book crush on Ridley wasn't enough to make me want to read this novella again, super loyal Link is an added bonus. I look forward to delving more into the world created by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl in the Beautiful Creatures, and the darker side with Dangerous Creatures. Dangerous Dream is an excellent appetizer, testing my pallet for the main course which is the Dangerous Creatures series.
