Announcing the Beautiful Creatures Spin-Off Series: DANGEROUS CREATURES

DangerousDream

So now you know why I’ve been missing in action online for the past few months. I’ve been busy working on this super secret project with Margie for months now — while writing the sequel to UNBREAKABLE. We’ve been keeping this under wraps for SO long, and now we can finally share!

Brendan Reichs, coauthor of the Virals series, summed it up best in his congratulatory tweet:

Excerpt from the Official Press Release:

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 e-novella 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.

“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 e-novella just in time for the holidays, and a brand-new novel the following spring.”

You can also join us for a live Twitter chat on Tuesday, September 17, at 4:00 p.m. PT/7:00 p.m. ET. Fans can ask questions about the new series using the hashtag #DangerousCreatures.

The e-novella, Dangerous Dream, which bridges the last book in the Beautiful Creatures novels and DANGEROUS CREATURES, will release on December 17, 2013.

DANGEROUS CREATURES, the first novel in the spin-off series, will hit stores and online retailers on May 6, 2014.

    I absolutely loved the whole Beautiful Creatures series, as well as the spin off. I can’t wait for the second book of Dangerous Creatures to come out. Your books are what make me glad that I got to meet you two at the USC festival of books a few years back. :) Do either of you have an idea if there is going to be a sequel to the movie franchise? I would love to see how the books continue in film.

  5. KamiGarcia said:

    So glad you enjoyed them! We don’t decide, the studio does.

    I just wanted to say that I recently finished the Beautiful Creatures Series, Dangerous Dream and Dangerous Creatures and am absolutely in love with them all. I am looking so forward to the second book in the Dangerous Creatures Series. They are all beautifully unique stories and I am excited to read more books by you and M.S. Do you think that there will be any more stories following Lena and Ethan and their lives together after college?

  13. Terri "Calliope" Combs said:

    If the Twilight Saga is awesome, and I think it is, Beautiful Creatures and everything that followed has been PHENOMENAL!

  14. Kami said:

    TY!

  15. Dua Mazhar said:

    SPIN OFF?! :D OH MY GOD YAY.

  16. vik said:

    Is the caster chronicles sequel?

  17. Kami said:

    It’s a spin-off, so it takes place after the events of the Beautiful Creatures novels but focuses on different characters (Link and Ridley instead of Ethan and Lena).

  18. Thalisa said:

    I really love your stories! It’s so amazing! I do hope you will keep writing. The reason why I’ve fallen in love with beautiful creatures was because of the movie (hope they will make the next movie). After that I bought the whole collection and starting reading. The way that it’s different, unique and magical really blew me away. I’m from Malaysia by the way. Good Luck on your future books!

    I have just this second finished Dangerous Creatures book 1, and have come across this while scouring the web to find book 2′s release. I need it now :) never have I been so hooked as I have with Beautiful Creatures&Dangerous Creatures! I love Link&Ridley. Any release date for the UK? Thank you for these stories x

  21. Kami said:

    Thanks for reading! So glad you’re loving Link and Ridley’s story. DANGEROUS DECEPTION hits shelves May 19 in the US, and the UK release date should be the same or around that time. x
