Spend Some Time ‘Live at the Lounge’
A new series returns to the world of Beautiful Creatures. Some loves are cursed…others are dangerous. Ridley Duchannes will be the first to tell you that she’s a bad girl. She’s Dark. She’s a Siren. You can never trust her, or even yourself when she’s around. Lucky for her, Wesley “Link” Lincoln can never seem to remember that; quarter Incubus or not, his heart is Mortal when it comes to Ridley. When Link heads to New York City to start a music career, Ridley goes along for the ride-and she has her own reasons. As if leaving small-town Gatlin for the big city, trying to form a band, and surviving life with a partially reformed Siren isn’t hard enough already, Link soon learns he has a price on his head that no Caster or Mortal can ever pay. Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, the #1 New York Times bestselling coauthors of Beautiful Creatures, are back and casting another magical spell. Their signature mixture of mystery, suspense, and romance, along with a dash of fun and danger, will pull fans in and leave them begging for more.PRE-ORDER HERE!
It was announced earlier today that the authors of Beautiful Creatures are writing a spinoff series, Dangerous Creatures. The series will follow Ridley and Link. We are so excited!
Hollywood Crush interviewed them today…
Hollywood Crush: When we spoke at New York Comic-Con last year, you quoted Justin Bieber, warning “never say never” to another collaboration, and now we have news of the “Dangerous Creatures” spin-off. How long has this been up your sleeves?
Margaret Stohl: We talked about it. You know what, we were in Rome for my birthday and Paris for Kami’s birthday on different tours, and every time we’ve gotten together, we’ve hatched this plan. And we have known the backstory and frontstory and sidestories for the Caster Chronicles for so long. It was more a question of, could we clear out the schedule and get Little, Brown to focus, and could we focus on it, and we finally did. We’re so excited. It’s our big, huge secret.
Hollywood Crush: Did you spend a lot of time developing these backstories while writing “Beautiful Creatures”?
Kami Garcia: It was interesting because some of them we knew. There were things like, this is what they would have done here. This is what happened there. But really, it was so easy because once we knew the trajectory of what the focus of the series would be about, they’re so much fun to write, and we know this world so well that it was like, if anything, we had too many ideas. We had too much material and so many ideas and so many old characters people love and new characters we’ve created. You know, as usual, it’s so easy when the two of us get together. We just start talking and so much comes out of it.
Hollywood Crush: Then how did you settle on Link and Ridley?
Stohl: They’ve been fan favorites for so long. They were the original fan favorites when we were writing the series. Kami’s sister and my daughter, they kept coming back and saying, “What’s going on with Link? What’s going on with Ridley? She’s so bad!”
Garcia: But also, we can’t count the number of emails, tweets, fan mail that we get about, “Why don’t you write something about Link and Ridley? You should do a spin-off. Link and Ridley deserve their own book.”
Stohl: I’ve been sent a Barbie doll with a pink stripe in her hair. They’re not joking around. That part’s been really fun.
