Review: Dangerous Creatures
Dangerous Creatures by Kami Garcia
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
No one can trust Ridley Duchannes. She is a Siren and fully Dark. With her powers, she makes others see and do what she wants. Wesley “Link” Lincoln is a quarter Incubus, yet he can’t seem to realize that Ridley is bad for him and continues to be her on again … off again boyfriend. As Link travels to New York City to try his hand at a music career, Ridley goes with him. She isn’t there as a supportive girlfriend though. During her last trip to NYC she lost two markers and one was a drummer. Ridley believes she can honor the marker and help her boyfriend along the way. Hey, he wants to be in a band and here is one that she has to supply the player. Unfortunately for all involved, there are darker forces at play and more than a gig is at stake.
Dangerous Creatures is the first book in a spin-off of the Beautiful Creatures series. Garcia and Stohl have taken characters that readers are already familiar with and develops the new storyline and the drama that ensues. I have to say that the first third of the book seemed very formulaic. If the reader is jumping into the book here without reading the first series, this may not be very obvious. Even with that flaw, the ending of the book was great. Readers will find many portions of the storyline coming to an end, yet as the end approaches a small twist occurs and the actual last page leaves such a cliffhanger that the reader may actually throw their book. You have been warned!
