e-book prequel to Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s ‘Beautiful Chaos’ available August 2011! Beautiful Chaos, the third installment in Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s Caster Chronicles series isn’t slated to hit bookstores until October 18, 2011; but diehard fans won’t have to wait that long for their next Caster Chronicles fix. On August 2, 2011, Garcia and Stohl will release Dream Dark: A Beautiful Creatures Story, an e-book exclusive download said to be a prequel to Beautiful Chaos, which focuses on Link, Ethan’s best friend, as he begins his own transformation into the supernatural. “In addition to the brand-new short story, the e-book download will also include an exclusive sneak peek at the first five chapters of ‘Beautiful Chaos.’” MTV.

James Patterson’s ‘Maximum Ride’ series coming to an end Since its debut on April 11, 2005, James Patterson’s Maximum Ride series has struck a chord with teenage readers and adults alike with his cast of quirky, part human/part avian characters thought of as modern-day superheroes, but nothing lasts forever – and neither will this series. Patterson recently announced that the release of the eighth book – Nevermore – set to hit bookstores in February 2012, will be the final installment in the series. “Patterson was confident that the movie will be adapted. In fact, the team behind the ‘Iron Man’ movie series just finished writing a ‘Maximum Ride’ screenplay and Catherine Hardwicke told GalleyCat that she may direct the movie.” GalleyCat.

The two-minute trailer, which you can view here, includes footage of the wedding invitation scene, as well as “spoilers about the strange plot of Stephenie Meyer‘s novel.” MediaBistro.

    No, not Catherine Hardwicke. She stuffed Twilight and made it even worse then the books. And thank god about Maximum Ride. ending First three were great, the fourth sucked. Fifth was good and Sixth/Seventh? I didn’t bother with reading.
    All things must come to an end, and it was obvious ages ago that James stuffed up the plot line for those books from the fourth book onwards. *sigh* it was a shame.

    waits for hate mail… 3 2 1…

    I’m so sick of e-books. They’re evil >.<
    Why can't they just have the prequel in print like its always been for hundreds of years! I now have to get an e-book because so many authors aren't publishing their books as e-books and when I see one that sounds amazing, I grumble because I don't own a Kindle/ Nook. These electronic books are killing me. I dislike them very much. I can't even get excited about the prequel because I don't have the money to by a Nook. *grumbles*
    Stupid e-books -___-

    I've never read a Maximum Ride Novel, but Catherine Hardwicke is a very good director. Twilight was on a super short budget and backing. The movie practically had no money because no one thought the fan base would be as big as it it. If she is the director I think she'll do really good 🙂

      Like Day said books 1-3 of Max Ride were great the fourth was pretty bad (OK not bad but a let down after the first 3) and the fifth was good (I think that Max’s personality 180 is what turned me off. she became so obsessed with Fang- who was her love interest- that she didn’t really seem like the same character) I also did not read the 6th or 7th, I will read them all when the th comes out.

      The reason I am responding to you, Courtney, is because you can read an eBook on your computer or phone. Just get the kindle or nook app. That is how i use to read the eBook exclusives before my aunt bought me a nook as a gift- but DTs forever!!!!! (That’s Dead Trees forever).
