Book Review: Dangerous Deception

review22798836From the world of Beautiful Creatures–a dangerous new tale of love and magic continues in the sequel to Dangerous Creatures.

Love is ten kinds a crazy, right?
Let me put it to you this way: If you can get away, run. Don’t walk.
Because once you’re exposed, you’ll never get a Siren outta your head.

Some loves are cursed. Others are…dangerous. Especially the love between wannabe rocker and quarter Incubus, Wesley “Link” Lincoln, and Dark Caster, Siren, and bonafide bad girl, Ridley Duchannes.

But now Ridley is missing, and Link was with her-right up until she vanished. Determined to find her, Link reunites with his New York bandmates and the mysterious Lennox Gates, who wants Rid for himself. Together they travel to the deep south, find the crossroads where blues guitarist Robert Johnson made his deal with the devil, discover a menagerie of Casters locked in cages, and uncover an evil in New Orleans that threatens to destroy them all.

This time, love might not be enough.

Where do I even begin with this book?

I guess I have a love-hate relationship with the sequel to Dangerous Creatures.

The book starts off exactly where the first one left off and Ridley is missing. We soon find ourselves in a tri-perspective (I guess that’s what you’d call it when it’s three POVs?) between Link, Ridley, and Nox. The two males are trying to search for the siren.

In the meantime, Ridley is locked up and definitely not the girl we’ve become accustomed to. She’s weak until she’s experimented on and becomes a new type of caster altogether. In a way, she’s worse than how she was at the beginning of Beautiful Creatures – more vindictive – and definitely not the same girl who loves Link.

I was a little disappointed about the ending to this one. It seemed rather underwhelming compared to how they’ve been building up Ridley and Link since Beautiful Creatures. I look forward to where this will lead the two and whether Ridley will go back to how she was before. She had become a better person throughout the series and spin-off and now it almost seems like they went backwards with her character?
