FROM LITTLE, BROWN PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT:
New York, NY [June 7, 2011] – Little, Brown Books for Young Readers will publish an exclusive e-book as part of the bestselling BEAUTIFUL CREATURES series by award-winning authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, it was announced today by Andrew Smith, the division’s Vice President and Deputy Publisher. DREAM DARK: A BEAUTIFUL CREATURES STORY is a never-before-seen short story, created as a prequel to BEAUTIFUL CHAOS, the hugely anticipated third book in the series, which goes on sale October 13. The e-book is set to release on August 2 for $1.99, and will be available for download across all digital platforms.
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, readers 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.The newest thing now seems to be Novellas. Everybody from Julie Kagawa to our girls K.G and M.S. are doing them. Generates buzz, keeps the characters fresh in our minds, and it feeds the hunger of starving fans. I think they are brilliant! Keep em coming as long as they are a good quality piece of work (like Summer Crossing was, review coming up later on today) and go along with the series.
This Novella however is not free like Summer's Crossing was, it's going to be $1.99. A fair price? I guess so considering how popular this series is, but Julie Kagawa is just as popular on these parts if not more and she let us have it for free for a certain lapse of time. I wish this were the case with this Novella too T_T I don't even own a Nook or a whatever of those evil little things that let you read E-books. So I would have to download it to my comp... I hate reading things in my comp.
So, excited?!?! I am!
