It was just announced recently that Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl will be reuniting again for another series, but this time a spinoff of the Beautiful Creatures series. This time, instead of the set focusing on Ethan and Lena, it’s going to focus on Ridley and Link with the first novel title called Dangerous Creatures, much to the delight of many a fan.
Here’s what the official press release on it states:
The Dangerous Creatures series will follow Link and Ridley, two fan-favorite characters from Beautiful Creatures. Readers will catch up with Ethan, Lena, and Link as they graduate from high school and get ready to leave the small Southern town of Gatlin, along with Link’s sometime girlfriend, Ridley. The series will launch on December 17, 2013, with Dangerous Dream, an enovella that will tie Dangerous Creatures to the world of the original series. Dangerous Creatures, the first book in the new series, will be published simultaneously in hardcover, ebook, and audio formats on May 6, 2014.
“Our fans have supported Beautiful Creatures and both of us from the beginning, and we are so grateful. This is for them,” said Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. “We can’t wait for them to return to Gatlin with us this December. We have more than a few surprises in store for them.”
“We are ecstatic with the massive success of Beautiful Creatures, which has sold nearly 3.5 million copies to date,” said Megan Tingley. “We’re eager to satisfy Kami and Margaret’s passionate fans with the swift release of a riveting enovella just in time for the holidays, and a brand-new novel the following spring.”
An enovella in December and then the first novel in May? Awesome!
And not only that, Kami and Margaret are going to be hosting a Twitter chat on Tuesday, September 17th at 7pm Eastern time to answer questions about this latest endeavor. With both authors out with a new solo series, this will be a fun and, I’m sure, busy time for them. To get your questions to them during the chat, use the hashtag #DangerousCreatures.
