Summary

Summary

From the world of Beautiful Creatures—a dangerous new tale of love and magic

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

Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, the #1 New York Times bestselling coauthors of the Beautiful Creatures novels, are back to cast another magical spell. Their signature blend of mystery, suspense, and romance, with a healthy dose of wit and danger, will pull fans in and leave them begging for more.

“Gorgeously crafted, atmospheric, and original.”  Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author of Wicked Lovely
“A lush Southern gothic.”  Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author of Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale
“Fans of the Beautiful Creatures saga will revel in the first in Garcia and Stohl’s spin-off series. No longer the arrogant Siren, Ridley is the star here, and her first adult experiences with fear and love are rendered in beautiful passages. An edgy cast, authentic New York City settings—including the grit and grime of Brooklyn and the glamour of Manhattan’s Upper East Side—and the story’s spot-on twenty-first-century dialogue make this an impressive work.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
