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....

Personally, similar vibes to that of Twilight (roles reversed) but extremely witty, more in depth characters and by far way better series than the Twilight Saga.
ALL OF IT! Each character had a special connection to one another. The best part was discovering the characters relations and themselves.
Intelligent! Well-written. Book lovers rejoice! This one has loads of witty references to the greatest novels and authors of all time.
If you enjoy coming of age love stories, anything supernatural, bro-mance, or YA novels, you should definitely give this series a chance!
I love this series!

I saw the movie and I felt that there was something missing. so I wanted to see what I missed. omgoodness. I am in love with this book. the narrator is so perfect for this story. can't wait to read the series
First thing I want to say is that so many people want to compare this to Twilight. I loved Twilight, but this is nothing like it. Only comparison is this is a teen Fantasy romance, but that is where it stops, and there are many teen fantasy romance books out, so I don’t know why people are saying this is like Twilight. FYI I loved all the Twilight books, so if this was like twilight I would have loved this book anyway. OK!
Overall this is a wonderful story. And it was a fun read. If you love teen fantasy, and if you love teen fantasy romance and all that comes with that, then you will love this book. If you do don’t like any one of these thing then this book is not for you.
I am addicted to audio books, mostly fantasy. I have alwayz loved to read but could never find the time. This way I keep my mind occupied with wonderful stories and don't get caught up in life's stresses. I'm so glad I found this site.
I enjoyed the movie so I wanted to read the book. I thought the book was much better of course. I defiantly want to continue the series.
I would most definitely listen to this series again. I watched the movie when it first came out and never understood why they didn't make more! Now, having read the series, I completely understand!! I still like the movie, but besides the details it was lacking, very few were correct. Hunger Games being first, this is my second favorite series! Love it!!
Ethan is by far my favorite character! He's so level headed and down to earth. He never becomes pouty like Lena or entitled like Amma. He just stayed cool and collected throughout the series. My second favorite would be Link!
I thought Kevin T Collins read this book fantastically!! He really got into the characters and never once did I feel it becoming mundane!
