Publisher's Summary

Before the Claiming: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!* 
You can't hide from fate.... 
While looking through her grandmother Emmaline's keepsakes, Lena Duchannes comes across a little blue book with a big history - a book that changed Macon Ravenwood's life and saved Lena's. 
When Lena was a baby, Seer and gifted card reader Amma Treaudeau saw a terrifying future in the cards that sent her to Emmaline's door. When a powerful Dark Caster sets fire to Lena's house with baby Lena and her father trapped inside, Amma, Emmaline, and Macon vow to protect the child. Lena's grandmother and her uncle Macon whisk Lena away, protecting her and moving her to a new place at the first sign of trouble. But a Caster can hide for only so long, and Macon must rely on the teachings in an ancient book to control his Dark nature. Ultimately, it will be his job to protect Lena - and keep her from surrendering to a Dark fate. 
New York Times best-selling authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl revisit the events that would define Lena's future in the third installment of Beautiful Creatures: The Untold Stories. 
*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration with complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.
