When Link joined his best friend, Ethan Wate, on a quest through a mysterious network of underground passageways endlessly crisscrossing the South, he knew the journey would be dangerous. But returning home to Gatlin, South Carolina was just the beginning...
Wounded during a climactic battle, Link discovers that tending his injuries won't be as simple as visiting a doctor and that healing his arm should be the least of his worries. For being bitten by a Supernatural does more than break the skin -- it changes a person, inside and out, turning Link into someone more and more like the dark creature who injured him.
In this never-before-seen short story by New York Times bestselling authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, readers witness Link's heart-racing transformation. Dream Dark is set before the much-anticipated third Beautiful Creatures novel, Beautiful Chaos, and as a special bonus includes an exclusive sneak peek at the first five chapters. (Goodreads)

This was a fun snippet that was definitely worth my 1.99 to pop into the Caster world. Even if it was for only a very short time.
Link has always been one of my favorite characters so I got very excited when I heard the news that he was getting his own short story. Dream Dark is so much fun and if you love the rest of the series then you will love this, too. Link’s interactions with his mom had me laughing out loud. The way she handled all his physical changes was hysterical. One of my favorite quotes by Links mom:
“Are you takin’ drugs, Wesley?” his mom had demanded after she charged into his room right before lunch. “Gettin’ yourself all hopped up on the marijuana?” "The way she said it, you’d think she was proposing to someone. Marriage-you-wanna?"
I also enjoyed seeing Link and Macon start to build a relationship. They are so different that their characters go very well together on page or screen seeing how this is an eBook. As impatient as I am this just may hold me over until the next in the series comes out. If you still have not read this series you are truly missing out they are so much fun, and they’re set in South Carolina one of the most amazing places on the planet. You have until October 18, 2011 to catch up that is when Beautiful Chaos comes out.
5 moons: I absolutely loved it, and will be looking into everything this author writes.
Teen and up: Some language, and violence.
