Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Description-Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she’s struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps, and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town’s oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

My Review-

   Beautiful Creatures is an amazing book, its a teensy bit like Twilight, but the two cannot be compared.

    I loved all of the characters, from Ethan to even Macon Ravenwood. Ethan and Lena were both strong-willed, and attracted to each other, somehow. They find a locket that was from Ethan's relative to Lena's. Whenever they touch the locket they can go back to the time where Greenbrier, the next town over, next to Gatlin, was burned in 1885. Lena is a caster, meaning she has special powers that allow her to do certain things that mortals cannot. All in all, the characters were well-developed and I felt a connection with all of them.

   The plot of this book was similiar to that of Twilight. Boy meets girl, but girl has powers. The twist that Garcia and Stohl put on Beautiful Creatures was so amazing, it doesn't compare to Twilight. There were so many little plots that had to do with the main plot, but if I told you, it could spoil the book for you.

   This book is the first in The Caster Chronicles series and let me tell you, I cannot wait until the second book, Beautiful Darkness comes out. October 12th!!!!I highly recommend Beautiful Creatures to anyone who loves romantic stories with alittle bit of magic. 


Overall-An amazing book, that you have to read. You will enjoy it from cover to cover!
Cover-I like it,I feel that it fits the book perfectly. Spooky, too.

Beautiful Creatures-OUT NOW!
Beautiful Darkness- OCTOBER 12TH!
