Dangerous Creatures by Kami Garcia
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ridley lost two markers to Nox, the first involves getting Link to sing in Nox's band Sirensong, the other can be whatever Nox wants and Ridley is scared.
As they get to know the other members of Siresong: Floyd (an illusionist who has a crush on Link), Necro (a Necromancer) and Sampson (Darkborn) Rid and Link's relationship begins to unravel, the final blow comes when Link sees Ridley kissing Nox.
But when Necro collapses after a set from a wound that gets larger and gushes black blood, Link turns to Ridley for answers. They discover Nox was working for Abraham Ravenwood and that he caused Necro to cut herself when Nox last used her to contact Abraham. Nox reveals that Abraham wants them dead and that Silas Ravenwood is on the way to kill them.
With Nox's help Link and Ridley stage their death but Silas isn't fooled and on the way out of town Link and Ridley are involved in a fiery crash.
.................Did they survive?
