Book Profile: DREAM DARK
Series: CASTER CHRONICLES #2.5 Time Period: Present Day
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 Timesbestselling authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, listeners 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 short story follows the lovable Link as he begins his metamorphosis into Linkubus or an incubus. I was distraught at the end of Beautiful Darkness when Link was bitten by the half incubus, John Breed. How could you ruin my favorite character? Fear not, fellow Link lovers; our beloved Link is intact and better than ever. As an incubus, Link finally morphs into the muscular, "third degree burns hot", babe magnet that he always aspires to be. Being an incubus does have a catch, he can no longer enjoy delicious, Southern, home cookin' because as an incubus he feeds on the dreams of others. Thankfully, he is not a blood sucking incubus. The tale begins with Link poised on the brink of incubus discovery. I loved getting an up close look at a day in the life of Link, it includes subpar biscuits and gravy, served by his fearsome mother, Mrs. Link, with her put the fear of God into you or else stare, a trip to the doctor for drug testing and a facts of life discussion, as well as his mother's threats and room searches. A classic good time, with all the snarky commentary you love from the series. Even though this is a novella, it has plenty of laughs, just what you expect when it comes to Link.
