RIDLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY


anyway, clearly I've fallen thru a wormhole because this wasn't the smoking hot trash heap I expected; more like slightly smouldering peeps in a designer microwave. WELL DONE, LADIES. NEVER WRITE ABOUT ETHAN AGAIN, ONLY WRITE ABOUT LINK AND RIDLEY FOREVER. ( )

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, thank you.

I haven't read the Beautiful Creatures -series, and I do feel that I missed quite a lot in this book because I hadn't. It is a new series, although a spin-off series, but some information would have been helpful to understand what was going on. I understand this is (at least) partly my fault, but I though 'New Series - I can just jump onto the bandwagon'. Especially with the world building, some additional information would have been useful. (That the characters already have a history I don't know everything about is only a pro!) But I was a bit confused as what the types of 'creatures' were, and what rules apply. Like, what is Ridley obsession with the lollipops? And what exactly IS an non-eating/sleeping Incubus. For a second I thought it was kind of a vampire, but how could one be a quarter-vampire? Bites, uhm, beats me.

Ridley is not your typical, amiable MC. She's a Siren, something 'dark', but basically just really manipulative. And she's not really having a great summer. However, things are even worse for her 1/4 Incubus (vampire?) sort-of boyfriend (but only when it's inconvenient actually) Link, who's constantly being manipulated.

This book was a nice, fast read. I actually enjoyed it more than I expected after reading the #0.5 book in this series (review is coming up). There is this annoying love triangle, and I really don't understand why every (YA) novel needs to have a love triangle, or pyramid or whatever. Also beware of unexplained magic (if you haven't read the first series), bad Pink Floyd jokes and chapters called after songs (like: Another Brick In The Wall, Stairway To Heaven, Comfortably Numb, Knockin' On Heaven's Door). I think I will try the second book in this series as well, when it is published. ( )

I couldn't wait to get this book and the wait was worth it. Lately I haven't had a lot of time to read but I started reading this one and I couldn't stop! I put the morning aside, curled up in bed and read. Dangerous Creatures follows Ridley and Link New York where Ridley has gotten into trouble. No surprise there and she hasn't told Link the whole story. The book is a fast read, very intriguing and non-stop wonder. I got to the end of the book and it was such a twist and so unexpected that I literally screamed. My daughter came running and wanted to know what was wrong!!!! I couldn't explain because she hasn't read the book yet! Oh so frustrating to have to be quite.......Now we have to wait for the next book! ( )

No tiene nada de la saga original, de hecho lo leo y no avanzo más que un par de páginas con suerte.

Read my full review of the book here! Spoiler Free!

Dangerous Creatures has an entirely different feel to it than Beautiful Creatures--which makes sense because Link and Ridley are no Ethan and Lena. It's traded the slower, gothic feel for the upbeat, modern feel of New York--but I'm not sure how I feel about that. It definitely took some getting used to but I eventually got into the swing of things. Just don't go in expecting a carbon copy of Beautiful Creatures when you read this book. Unlike Beautiful Creatures, Dangerous Creatures lacks a mystery from the past. I suppose that there is a bit of one but I find it isn't as powerful as it was in Beautiful Creatures. And because it isn't as powerful, I felt like the plot was the bare minimum needed to move the novel along.

I recommend reading Dangerous Dream before Dangerous Creatures just to bridge the gap between the series though it isn't necessary because what happens in the novella is reiterated in Dangerous Creatures.

Overall: Fans of Beautiful Creatures will love that Link and Ridley finally get their own story. However, it has a completely different plot line and feel that may take some getting use to. Honestly, this book was a bit of a disappointment but I'm not giving up hope because where this book appears to be going has captured my attention!
