Dangerous Dream by Kami Garcia

  Ethan and Lena? Liv and John? Macon and Marian? Whatever. This wasn’t about them anymore.

  This was about us.

  I should’ve known we wouldn’t get off easy. No Caster goes down without a fight, even when you think the fight is over. No Caster lets you ride off into the sunset on some lame white unicorn or in your boyfriend’s beat-up excuse for a car.

  What’s a Caster fairy-tale ending?

  I don’t know, because Casters don’t get to have fairy tales—especially not Dark Casters. Forget the sunset. I’ll tell you how the whole castle burned to the ground, taking Prince Charming down with it.

  I’ll tell you how to turn that prince into a frog and spin a little gold into straw—just in time for the Seven Dwarfs to go all ninja and drop-kick your butt straight out of the kingdom.

  That’s what a Dark Caster fairy tale looks like.

  What can I say? Payback’s a bitch.

  But here’s the thing:

  So am I.

  About the Authors

  Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl came up with the concept for Beautiful Creatures, their debut novel, over lunch. Margaret had always been captivated by fantasies, while Kami loved stories set in the South. With nothing to write on, they scribbled their ideas for a story that combined their shared passions on a paper napkin. By the time they left, Beautiful Creatures was born. Kami and Margie live with their families in Maryland and California, respectively. Now they write on computers instead of napkins. Margaret and Kami are currently working on their solo series—Margaret Stohl’s Icons and Kami Garcia’s Unbreakable are available now. They invite you to visit them online at margaret-stohl.com and kamigarcia.com.
