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.
Beautiful creatures is a great book to indulge in. It has the most sweetest romance between Ethan and Lena. A perfect love which unfortunatley seems doomed due to the fact Lana is a Caster and has to make the biggest choice of her life on her 16th birthday.
It may seem slow moving but don't let that put you off becuase the events leading up to the end are fomidable. So much drama. Even the end itself has a shocking twist.
The small town of Gaitlin is described really well and all the characters are extremely intereating in their own ways. My favourite character would be Ethan as he is the one who makes the story seem so real and Lena too because of all her magical powers.
It's pretty impressive how two authors have combined together to create a wonderful book. Totally genius.
The part of the story which I love so much are Ethan's dreams as well as the locket which takes them both back in time revealing many secrets.
I can't wait to get my hands on the second book, Beautiful Darkness!
