More Beautifully Dark Stories

Yesterday it was announces that Little, Brown will be publishing an exclusive short story by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl! It is called "Dream Dark", and is being described as a sort of prequel to Beautiful Chaos, taking place between the second and third books. Here's what it's all about:
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.

You all know about my short story love, right? So I cannot be more excited for this one, and since it will release on August 2nd, it will break up the wait for Beautiful Chaos nicely! It's going to be released as an e-book in all formats, which is good news for those of you who love e-reading. If you don't have an e-reader, then I highly recommend the free Kindle app, which is really cool. And the price is just right--only $1.99!

I'm excited--especially for the new character perspective. What do you guys think? Are you excited?
