One lonely short story for my Kindle is my entire mailbox this week. I got Dream Dark: A Beautiful Creatures Story by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. I am a fan of the series and want to have everything.

Here is the description:
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, listeners 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.
I am eager for Beautiful Chaos and can't wait to get to the sneak peek.

That was my week. What was in your mailbox?


  1. I got Dream Dark but haven't started reading it yet. I do love that series and can't wait to read Beautiful Chaos.

  2. Well at least you didn't come out empty handed! And short stories can be fun too!
