Dream Dark (Beautiful Creatures Series) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Overview from Barnes and Noble:

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, listeners 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.

My thoughts:
It turns out that I read this one out of order.  I thought there were just four books in the series, and there are just four regular novels in the series, but this is an in between novella that should have been read in between books two and three.  I know when I was reading book four I kept wondering if I had forgotten parts of book three even though I had read it quite recently.  Now I know the scenes it was referring to that I thought I must have forgotten were in this book instead.
Link has been changed due to having been bitten by John Breed and is now a quarter Incubus.  He no longer needs to sleep or eat regular food and has grown taller and is more filled out.  He is still the lovable Link, who is in a really bad rock band and drives a beat up car, but he is also something more now and needs to work on understanding his powers and the new world that he belongs to.
This book reveals more of the tunnels and the supernatural community of dark and light casters, incubuses and more.
