Can I just start this off by saying that I loved this novella? As a huge fan of the Beautiful Creatures saga, I was saddened when I thought it was over. I was immensely glad to see that it was not over, but it was changed, and this novella bridges the gap between that series and the upcoming sequel series that will start in the coming months. This novella brings many of the much loved characters back, and the story is a short introduction into a much larger story that I believe to be the first novel in the sequel series. I can say that the story is a very good introduction and sets the stage quite nicely for the next book. Fans of the series will not be disappointed in this novella. I certainly wasn’t.

A hand grabs her shoulder, and she turns to find a mortal inviting her backstage for a drink. When she accepts, Ridley thinks she can handle it. What she doesn’t know is that this choice will ultimately change her life forever.
