Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks. A Gatlin where a curse has marked Lena's family of powerful Supernaturals for generations. A Gatlin where impossible, magical, life-altering events happen.
Together they can face anything Gatlin throws at them, but after suffering a tragic loss, Lena starts to pull away, keeping secrets that test their relationship. And now that Ethan's eyes have been opened to the darker side of Gatlin, there's no going back. Haunted by strange visions only he can see, Ethan is pulled deeper into his town's tangled history and finds himself caught up in the dangerous network of underground passageways endlessly crisscrossing the South, where nothing is as it seems.

Couldn't stop listening to first one - it was delicious!
...but this one was a little slow for me and negative at the beginning. The first half was her depression and I almost put it down (like in Twilight book 2 where Bella whines and whines and whines...until I wanted to kill myself or her!) then it picked up. It introduced a new character that I loved and with all the depression I was almost hoping he ended up with her.
I get a little confused with so many periphery characters but it adds to the flavor of the book. I did miss the "aunts" in this book: they do not show up nearly as often as they did in book one and they made me laugh out loud.
I liked it enough not to give up on the series though and I am buying book 3 now. :)
I liked the interaction of the characters, Ethan and Lena, Ethan and Link, Ethan and Liv, Link and Liv, Ridley all by herself, Lena and John. Parts of this book were heartbreaking, awe inducing and tear-jerking.
He brought depth to each character, made each of them have their own voice and personality.
When Ethan spoke to his mother as a sheer, it was very bittersweet.
I absolutely loved the book Beautiful Creatures, and the second book in the series is no exception. Lena suffers greatly over her uncle’s death and Ethan does his best to help her. Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia have taken a sequel and kept the reader’s attention, while weaving the story line in a unique and interesting way. I have to say that I purchase the remaining 3 books and this book was so interesting that I will immediately go into the third book. Great series!
Already did, beautiful chaos, glad they kept Kevin, already got used to him
It made my commute easier
Waiting for the movie
The continued love story between Lena and Ethan.
The commitment of friendships and love.
Yes. This one is awesome.
I loved the story and how the narrator made it come to life.
Yes, and I have. It's suspenseful and unexpected.
Link's being bitten and becoming an Incubus/?
If the authors hadn't spent so much time covering old territory I'd have enjoyed it so much more. Seems like it was written for the person who had NOT read the first book. It dragged, moving so slowly that I finally skipped to the end just to be done with it.
Second book in the series. There is more action in this one than the first one. I am finding myself my new "Twilight"!
