(I received a free copy of this book, through NetGalley, in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I’ve only read the first book in the Beautiful Creatures series, but I did quite enjoy it, so when I saw this short story offered on NetGalley, I immediately decided I wanted to read it.
Ridley is a character I found particularly intriguing in the book, though I think her character was ruined quite a bit in the film. I found it interesting that, despite the whole Dark and Light Castors, Ridley was more of a well-rounded character.
It was good to see Ridley’s relationship with Link. I felt that theirs was a bit more believable than Ethan and Lena’s – mostly, I think, because there was more conflict involved. I wasn’t sure the first person bit at the beginning was necessary, though, since the rest of the short story was written in third person.
I did think this was a good introduction to the next series of books. I’d definitely be intrigued to read those, particularly if they do concentrate on Ridley and Link.
