Book Review: Dangerous Creatures

review18478946A 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.

I honestly think that Ridley Duchannes is my favorite character in the world of Beautiful Creatures, but why did it take me this long to realize it?

Our blond-haired girl with the pink streaks in her hair has come quite a long way since the first book in the Caster Chronicles. This spin-off series is so far only made up on two books, but it follows her story after the gang parts in Gatlin County. There’s an added bonus of dual-perspectives so that you can see New York City through the eyes of Ethan’s best friend, Link, while he tries make a name for himself in the music world.

There’s a part of me that liked the character Nox but I’m still unamused that he was also the one that got Ridley into the current mess that she’s in – let’s not talk about the fact that it was her idea to bet against Nox’s house.

The ending leaves you with a major cliffhanger, so I’d suggest getting the second book, Dangerous Deceptions, if you hate waiting to find out what happened to our two lovebirds.
