Dream Dark 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
I think this would have been better told form Link s perspective The fact that Ethan know this much about his friends feelings and bodily functions is disturbingly weird I m not sure if this short story has any significance in the bigger scheme of thins, I ll come back and update this review if it is.
Dream Dark is a small splice in the Caster s Chronicles 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 Be [...]
This is the story of Gatlin s first, and only, Linkubus.I approve of this message.Very short review for a very short story It s no secret that I m only still reading these books for Link and Ridley Beautiful Darkness was a bland 2 star read for me The only parts which had my interest were any scenes with L R So it s no surprise that I enjoyed this L R short much than I did an actual book about Ethan and Lena.In fact, this might be one of those rare occasions in which I m going to enjoy the movi [...]
My first thought after finishing this What That s it That s the end It s too short I was really getting into the story and was surprised when I turned the page and saw the authors bio.It s still a good lead up to the third novel in the series.If you don t know, Dream Dark is short story set in the same world as Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness It s pretty much a prequel to Beautiful Chaos which was released on Oct 18 , focusing on the series main character s friend, Wesley Lincoln, aka [...]
I think that somewhere right about here, this series jumped the shark for me I m sorry to say good bye to my beloved Ethan, but I just don t care for the who s mortal immortal in this story feel of the plot lines.This is an example of a series that would ve been wonderful as a two book series Good bye Ethan Lena, I hope you choose one or the other side or frankly, both if it suits you.
Well I guess I can t complain about how short this was about six chapters because I mean it is a novella It was cute and all but it wasn t my favorite I liked seeing some of the characters again but I m also really happy that this was just six chapters long I didn t want of any of it I d rather just stick to the bigger books, the actual books, with all the information about all of the intriguing characters.
When it comes to the saying good things come in small packages nothing rings true than Dream Dark by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl This mini novella packs a wallop of a punch because it is full of mystery, laughs and the awesomeness that is Linkcubus I adore this series for it s Gothic feel and beautifully descriptive writing for it conjures up the most vivid imagery and makes you feel like sipping sweet tea while hiding out in your closet Dream Dark is a mini novella centering on Link, one of [...]
When I read Beautiful Creatures, I was amazed After reading the second book, Beautiful Darkness, I wasn t as pleased My main problem with the second book in the Beautiful Creatures series was Lena, but I started Dream Dark with a fresh mind, knowing that this short story featured Link, who has always been one of my favorite characters from the series.Dream Dark tells the story of Link, rowdy, love stricken teen boy and his transformation to an incubus, completely unaware of what lies ahead for h [...]
This was alright I just feel like it was really short and we don t really find out that much about Link.
These little novellas are starting to get annoying I read this in 30 minutes And it feels like a waste of the 1.99 to The preview of the next full length book was longer And if I need the few facts that were learned in this little detour then we should just get them in one of the longer books For those who agree that a book that takes less than an hour to read isn t worth it visit my blog over the next few days and I will tell you all you need to know from this book there The details themselves [...]
This was a really short story giving insight on how Link dealt with being an Incubus I m not the hugest fan of this series, but I did find this book very interesting It s nice to see how he dealt with it and it was oddly amusing seeing how Link s family thought about his new abilities My only complaint would be that this is from Ethan s point of view, which doesn t really make much sense I would have preferred to see this fro Link s perspective.Anyway, this novella isn t necessary for you to re [...]
Should not have wasted my time with this In Beautiful Redemption , the characters reference incidents from this short story, enticing me to read it Now I m sorry I spent the 2 Yes, I realize it was a short story However, in kindle measurement, I didn t really expect it to end at 41% Yes, a full 59% of the story book I bought was the preview for the next book in the series LAME.
A novella dedicated to Link Awesome.His life being an Incubus.And there is a new character I thought has no importance but unfortunately I m wrong.
DD is a 41 page short story that takes place after beautiful darkness and centers around ethan s best friend, link this short novella was apparantly released as a separate installment after BD and included early bonus chapters of beautiful chaos so while DD states it is a 75 page book, it is actually only 41 pages long, and subsequently many GR reviews will reflect disappointment in spending 1.99 on 41 pages fortunately for me, i got it as a bonus included at the back of my paperback copy of bea [...]
From the first sentence of any of the Caster Chronicles books, you instantly feel like you re amongst friends and you re home And in this short story taking place between last year s Beautiful Darkness and the upcoming Beautiful Chaos, you step right back into the thick of things in Gatlin and get reacquainted with Ethan, Lena, ex Siren Ridley, and new Incubus Link Ethan s best friend, Link was bitten at the end of Beautiful Darkness by John Breed, and Dream Dark follows his transformation from [...]
This short story takes place between the events of Beautiful Darkness and Beautiful Chaos It details the transformation of Ethan s best friend Link from Mortal to part Incubus as a result of being bitten by the mysterious Caster Incubus hybrid John Breed Link struggles fairly minimally to figure out what he s becoming and seeks guidance from Macon, who sends him on a mysterious and ill fated errand.I actually read this short story after finishing the entire Caster Chronicles series, so I can hon [...]
I am not going to lie but I was expecting it to be just a little bit longer Well at least by looking at what page I finished the book on my nook at, I was expecting a little bit but I could have actually read .However, I like being able to read from another character s perspective I feel that when we are able to do this, we are able to see what is happening from not only a different side of it but also get a different opinion sometimes And I am glad that we are able to get a side from Link s jo [...]
What do you do when you wake up one morning, and you ve become an Incubus You can t stand the smell of food, you ve grown taller and stronger overnight, and it s not like you can find a pamphlet somewhere This is the situation Wesley Link Lincoln now finds himself After his oh so mortal mom drags him to see the doctor and have Link tested for steroid abuse Link finally consults somebody who knows his girlfriend s Uncle Macon, himself a former Incubus Turns out, it s really not that difficult.One [...]
I wanted to read this short story as an ending of the Caster Chronicles I didn t I would like this side of the story than the actual story This is the short story of the one and only Linkubus, i always liked this character in the story because it brings the human part, with this I don t mean that Ethan is not human but he is so in love that he sometimes forgets it that is when Link comes around To hear the transformation from the Link part s very good because is real and written in a very teena [...]
This book was a short story at the end of my copy of Beautiful Darkness, so I didn t need to purchase it extra Honestly I didn t even realize it was on here until a friend of mine marked it to read I love Link, he is one of my favorite characters in the series I have to agree with most people that this story was too short It did show some wonderful Link development and I really enjoyed getting away from the Ethan Lena drama a bit.
A 35 page story Set between Beautiful Darkness and Beautiful Chaos, introducing Link as succubus Finally, an exclusive look into Link s change and a great lead into the third book It ended kind of abruptly, coz I think I expected a little bit Nonetheless I suppose it does add to the storyline but it was awfully short.
This story was weird, and awesome, though the ending, with the guy who was supposed to get Macon s note being killed by Hunter, and then the note being blank, yeah I can t wait to reread , I know a bit of what s going to happen next, but not all
Not sure what the point of this short story wasybe it will make sense in the next book.
Relato r pido, ahora vimos un podo de Link D
I read the Caster Chronicles the first time as they came out However, the novellas escaped me So while I ve read the rest of Ethan and Lena s story, I did not read this side of the story Link has always been the hilarious best friend of Ethan Wate When he s turned into a quarter incubus what he refers to as a Linkcubus , his whole life is turned on its axis The girl he fell in love with in book one was finally within his grasp they no longer has to worry about the sparks that would fly and possi [...]
I can t rate Dream Dark like a novel because it is too short even to be a novella Because of this, I rated it 3.5 stars but rounded up because it had the potential to be longer but still has everything I love about this series The reader gains a lot of information in this short little mini book, and though the action takes place immediately after the events of Beautiful Darkness, the information does not become immediately pertinent until after Beautiful Chaos I bought this short on my kindle be [...]
Review Taken From The Pewter WolfFollowing the events of Beautiful Darkness, something isn t right with Link He seems to have gone off his food He seems to have grown several inches taller And when did he develop muscles like that from And how did he heal from that bite so fast Look out Gatlin, South Carolina, here comes the first LinkubusThis is a story for the fans I have to say this first and foremost so, if you re like me and know nothing of the series, BACK AWAY This isn t for you.But sayin [...]
My first thought on finishing this was that is was entirely too short Linkubus could have an entire full length novel devoted to him, and I d be happy.Basically, this little slip of a novella is set between Beautiful Darkness and Beautiful Chaos I picked this up before delving into Beautiful Chaos , so I can t judge how relevant it is to the third novel at this point My opinion is that it maybe could have been included in Beautiful Chaos somewhere or at least the details of it It s so short It d [...]
When I began reading this book, I expected something longer and a complicated story My biggest complain is the fact that the preview from Beautiful Chaos the next book is actually longer than the actual story But anyway, I really liked the story and I liked the switch to Link s point of view, even if it wasn t completely successful because Ethan was writing it, even though it did t really show because he said approximately 4 lines in 1st person Anyway, I loved to see of Macon, since he is my f [...]
wayyy to short i have a love hate of kindle novellas while on one hand, they give you a deeper look into the worlds that authors have created, they re also torturous because there are so few words there s never enough to be satisfying, only enough to get emotions riled up only to be left breathless reeling and left to wait for the next book why, that s quite genius if you ask megardless, i loved reading link s story even though it felt so truncated but let s be honest, i really didn t need ethan [...]
