JJJ Book Club: Kami Garcia Teases 'Dangerous Creatures' - Read an Excerpt!

Author Kami Garcia was in a giving and teasing mood over the holidays.

The “Beautiful Creatures” writer teased her Tumblr followers with a few quotes from the upcoming “Dangerous Creatures” book, a companion book to the bestselling “BC” book series.

Read the excerpt below:

“I’ve been called a lot of things, but what I really am is a survivor — and while there are more than a few stupid Sirens, tgere are zeri stupid survivors.

“Consider my record. I outlasted some of the Darkest Casters and creatures alive. I withstood whole months of Stonewall Jackson HIgh School. Beyond that, I survived a thousand terrible love songs written by one Wesley Lincoln, a cluelss Mortal boy who became an equally clueless quarter Incubus. And who, by the way, is not the most gifted musician.

“For a while, I survived wanting to write him a love song of my own. That was harder.

“This Siren gig is mean to be a one-way street. Ask Odysseus and two thousand years’ word of dead sailors if you don’t believe me.”

“Dangerous Creatures” is out on May 20th. ARE YOU EXCITED?

Check out the exclusive reveal of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl‘s new novel, “Dangerous Creatures”!

Out on May 20th, 2014, Ridley Duchannes is nobody’s heroine. She’s a Dark Caster, and 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 Wesley “Link” Lincoln never listens to anyone. Link doesn’t care if Rid’s no good for him, and 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?

Alice Englert leans on leading man Alden Ehrenreich‘s shoulder in this exclusive, new shot from the February 2013 issue of Nylon magazine.

The Beautiful Creatures stars chatted about being initially being turned away from the movie and their characters.

“The film was pitched to me poorly, as sort of a teen rip-off of those Twilight movies and I thought, ‘Uh, I don’t want to do that,’” Alden shared.

Alice added of playing Lena, “She learned humanity through love, and discovered you can be light and dark. That is what is real and human.”

Beautiful Creatures is out in theaters NOW.
