From the world of Beautiful Creatures--the instant New York Times bestselling tale of love and magic.

Ridley Duchannes is nobody's heroine. She's a Dark Caster, a Siren. She can make you do things. Anything. You can't trust her, or yourself when she's around. And she'll be the first to tell you to stay away--especially if you're going to do something as stupid as fall in love with her.

Lucky for Ridley, her wannabe rocker boyfriend, Wesley "Link" Lincoln, never listens to anyone. Link doesn't care if Rid's no good for him, and he takes her along when he leaves small-town Gatlin to follow his rock-star dream. He teams up with a ragtag group of Dark Casters, and when the band scores a gig at a hot Underground club, it looks like all of Link's dreams are about to come true.

But New York City is a dangerous place for both Casters and Mortals, and soon Ridley realizes that Link's bandmates are keeping secrets. With bad-boy club owner Lennox Gates on her heels, Rid is determined to find out the truth. What she discovers is worse than she could have imagined: Link has a price on his head that no Caster or Mortal can ever pay. With their lives on the line, what's a Siren to do?

Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, the #1 New York Times bestselling coauthors of the Beautiful Creatures novels, are back to cast another magical spell. Their signature blend of mystery, suspense, and romance, with a healthy dose of wit and danger, will pull fans in and leave them begging for more.

Dangerous creature is a dangerous love story written by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. I was a huge fan of beautiful creature and I was thrilled that we would be revisiting Ridley and Link in dangerous creatures. For the most part I got what I wanted, lots of sassy siren Ridley and southern dorky charm from Link. There were few things that kept me from loving the book but I was engage enough to check out the rest of the Link and Ridley story, so it’s a solid start to the new series.
Ridley, was of my favorite character it wasn’t a surprise that I enjoyed reading from her perspective. We were introduced to her softer side, but there were plenty of times in Dangerous Creatures where Ridley was vulnerable.
The romance in this book was really confusing. I use to ship Ridley and Link so hard, but this time they were on-and -off and horrible dynamic. Majority of plot seemed pointless. The only thing that made the book easy to read was the writing style.
I would say that Dangerous Creature is a must for fans of Beautiful Creatures who adore Link and Ridley. I hope the next books will be more action packed and give us more plot to sink our teeth into, but it was definitely revisiting these two. Don’t read this book if you love triangle make you squirm. I recommend reading the Caster Chronicles series before starting this one.

"Everyone likes a rebel" as they all say. "This protagonist will steal your heart", and "She is a bad girl through and through". Honestly, though, Ridley struck me as the type that may have fit these quotas, but lacked in some areas. I don't know what people found so captivating about her, as she is really just a misguided girl raised with the wrong ideas, but maybe some people relate to that? I'm not too sure. But over the span of the book she changes quite dramatically. Those who like subtle changes will probably enjoy the book more than those who just liked the "evil queen" version of Ridley. The romance with Link is more focused, and while I do ship the two together it seemed a bit off right from the start.
