Check out the cover for “Dangerous Deception”, the next book in the “Beautiful Creatures” series from authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl!
The book’s official summary: Some loves are cursed. Others are…dangerous. Especially the love between wannabe rocker and quarter Incubus, Wesley “Link” Lincoln, and Dark Caster, Siren, and bonafide bad girl, Ridley Duchannes.
But now Ridley is missing, and Link was with her-right up until she vanished. Determined to find her, Link reunites with his New York bandmates and the mysterious Lennox Gates, who wants Rid for himself. Together they travel to the deep south, find the crossroads where blues guitarist Robert Johnson made his deal with the devil, discover a menagerie of Casters locked in cages, and uncover an evil in New Orleans that threatens to destroy them all.
This time, love might not be enough.
“Dangerous Deception” will hit shelves on May 19th, 2015!
There are only a few days left until the return of dark caster Ridley Duchannes and her Linkubus!
Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl‘s “Dangerous Creatures” is hitting shelves next week and to celebrate that and the Wanning Gibbous Moon in the sky tonight, the JJJ Book Club spoke with the authors about bringing back the love-hate couple we all couldn’t get enough of.
“More than anything, ‘Dangerous Creatures’ was a labor of love. Really, Kami and I missed the world of the Casters, and the characters who had become like family to us both. When we found ourselves traveling together to promote ‘Beautiful Creatures’ (to Paris for Kami‘s birthday, and to Rome for mine!) all we could talk about was what had been going on in Gatlin since our series had wrapped,” Margaret told JJJ.
She continued, “We were like the Sisters, the oldest ladies in Gatlin County, who just couldn’t get enough of the town gossip. Before long, we knew what we had to do — write it out — and ‘Dangerous Creatures’ was the result. The moment we followed Ridley and Link to New York City to make it big in the music scene, we knew trouble was on the way. And it so was! Ridley and Link’s story was every bit as fun and romantic and crazy as we were expecting, and we hope our readers around the world think so too. More to come!”
Kami added, “Returning to the world of Beautiful Creatures was so much fun! The fact that we were writing about Link and Ridley — two fan favorites — made it feel like the ultimate gift for our readers.”

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?
