Publisher's Summary

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....

    I really lived the connections between Lena and Ethan. But I'm upset that Melchizedek (Macon) had died. Overall I loved it.

    "I enjoyed listening to this book."

    Narrator transitions well, love the extra ambient noises. I purchased this because I enjoyed the movie and wanted to read the entire series. I am not disappointed at all, I loved to listen.

    "Teenage Agnst Mixed with Majic "

    I loved the narrators voice so smooth and southern, even when voicing a different character. I could listen to him all day. I loved how the story unfolded just a bit at a time keeping me guessing. I felt like I really was in a small southern town.

    Story
    "BOOK LOVERS REJOICE!!!!"
    What other book might you compare Beautiful Creatures to and why?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    ALL OF IT! Each character had a special connection to one another. The best part was discovering the characters relations and themselves.


    Any additional comments?

    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!
