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.”

Up for some late night reading?
Authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl will be kicking off their book tour for “Dangerous Creatures” soon and since everyone can’t get to them in the select-city stops, they’ve just released the first five chapters from the book!
The JJJ Book Club officially declares them the best authors ever!
“Dangerous Creatures” follows Ridley Duchannes, who 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.

Check out the cover reveal for Kami Garcia‘s upcoming book, “Unmarked”!
Ms. Garcia debuted the cover on her personal website on early Friday morning, giving readers a glimpse at the second book of the Legion Series.
The sequel’s jacket copy:
“He is here… and he could be anyone.
“Kennedy Waters lives in a world where vengeance spirits kill, ghosts keep secrets, and a demon walks among us–a demon she accidentally set free.
“Now Kennedy and the other Legion members–Alara, Priest, Lukas, and Jared–have to hunt him down. As they learn more about the history of the Legion and the Illuminati, Kennedy realizes that the greatest mystery of all does not belong to any secret order, but to her own family. With the clock ticking and the life of someone she loves hanging in the balance, Kennedy has to ask the question she fears most: what is it about her past that has left her Unmarked?”
ARE YOU EXCITED for “Unmarked”?
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?
Want another goodie? JJJ was lucky enough to get our hands on a bit of the first chapter from the the e-novella, Dangerous Dream, out today!

Check out this cute new pic of Candice Accola in the recording booth for “Unbreakable”!
The 26-year-old actress lent her voice to Kami Garcia‘s new novel, out on October 1st.
“Had such a great time recording my first audiobook “Unbreakable” by the wonderful @kamigarcia a couple weeks ago! Excited for everyone to read (or listen to;) ) the book!” Candice captioned with the pic.
Kami added (via EW), “I can’t begin to describe how exited I am to have Candice Accola reading the audiobook version of ‘Unbreakable’, the first book in my new series, the Legion. I’m a huge Vampire Diaries fan, and Caroline is by far my favorite character because of Accola’s ability to show vulnerability without ever compromising strength or independence.”
