Dream Dark

Dream Dark (Caster Chronicles #2.5)
By Kami Garcia , Margaret Stohl
My rating: 2 of 5 stars


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 Times bestselling authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, readers 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.

My opinion:

Well,to begin with the story was too short.I would have given more stars if it contained more informantion about Link's life or even about Ridley.Nothing significant happend to this very short  novella.The end was really confusing as :Macon sent Link to deliver  a letter to an old man(Obidias), who Hunting had almost killed by the time Link made it to the old man's place.There we learn that "The Order is broken"  and the Apocalypse is coming.Guess this will make sense when we read Beautiful Chaos .

Beautiful Darkness 

 Beautiful Darkness (Caster Chronicles #2)
 By Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl
 My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks. A Gatlin where a curse has marked Lena's family of powerful Supernaturals for generations. A Gatlin where impossible, magical, life-altering events happen.

Sometimes life-ending.

Together they can face anything Gatlin throws at them, but after suffering a tragic loss, Lena starts to pull away, keeping secrets that test their relationship. And now that Ethan's eyes have been opened to the darker side of Gatlin, there's no going back. Haunted by strange visions only he can see, Ethan is pulled deeper into his town's tangled history and finds himself caught up in the dangerous network of underground passageways endlessly crisscrossing the South, where nothing is as it seems.

 My Opinion:

    I really liked this book but in my opinion something was missing.
The book begins with Ethan describing Macon's funeral and saying all the things that happend after his death.After everything that Ethan and Lena went through to be together someone would think that they deserve to be peacefully together.But,noooooooo.
    Lena is more distant than ever,and if that isn't enough she is acting really weird.Two new characters come to the story,John Breed,who apparently is a caster and incubus hybrid and Olivia Durand a Keeper-in-Training.Lena decides to run away from everything with John and Ridley and go to a place that magic doesn't exist.
     This book is full of unexpected events,twists,and an end that will leave you with your mounth open.If you haven't read it yet I totally recommended it.It's a worth reading book.

Angels Of Darkness

Angels of Darkness
By Nalini Singh,Ilona Andrews, Meljean Brook, Sharon Shinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nalini Singh's Angel's Wolf was the reason i read this book and i have to say that i really liked it.I liked the main characters Nimra and Noel but to me something was missing.The story had a smooth flow but the plot didn't grip my attention as easily as her other books did..Nonetheless,the book is a must-read and really worths it.

Here's the Blurb:

Tales of alpha angels...from four alpha authors.

They soar through the night, unearthly creatures of legends and lore. Four masters of urban fantasy and paranormal romance explore the rapture of the heavens above, and the darkness below in four all-new stories of angels and guardians, and good and evil.
