Dream Dark is the novella following Beautiful Darkness. This is 2.5 in the Caster Chronicles This review will have spoilers for the first two books in the Caster Chronicles. I read this for the September is for Sequels challenge.
Link is adjusting to his life following the circumstances of his encounter with John Breed over the summer. Link is now a quarter Incubus and with that comes superior power, but also an aversion to food and a need to feed on dreams. Link is able to discuss his problems with Macon Ravenwood. Macon gives Link a task to test him, but it may prove to be impossible.
This novella is from Link's point of view as compiled by Ethan. It has most of Link's humor, but from Ethan's perspective. I liked seeing more of Link's relationship with Ridley through Link's perspective.
Favorite Character: Link. Link seems to hold to his religious beliefs in his own way, while adapting to the Caster life. He also has a sense of humor even in the darkest situations.
Favorite Quote: "Small towns are known for lots of small things, but they're known for some big things too. Like stories that start out as small as the town itself, until folks grow them." I love Garcia and Stohl's descriptions and the way they set the scenes.
This makes me want to start Beautiful Chaos soon. Nice short story into the life of Link with a hook at the end to get you geared up for BC. 4 cups of cocoa!
