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....

    Story
    "A teen drama similar to divergent but more plot."

    As a guy I like how this love story was from a guys point of view. The descriptions leave more for the mind to make up which is fine by me. I finished divergent before this and from my pt of view there was too much description of just how hand went together. I can relate to this story more.

    "waste of my listening time"

    This book was a wage of my credit and time. Flat characters and 17 hours to deliver a simple and predictable story. This book may have been interesting when I was 14. But not now. it is way more YA than advertised.

    "Loved this story!"

    I found it interesting that it was written by two women from a male perspective - a teen male, at that. I'm definitely interested in seeing the movie now. The narration was awesome and he really gave a voice to the individual characters.

    "Loved it!"

    The story itself is, of course, amazing. But the performance of the narrator(s) for this audiobook was just perfect. From the multiple voices giving each character their own uniqueness down to the background noises and actual singing of 16 Moons, this was one of the best audiobooks performance-wise I've listened to. Downloading book 2 right now :)

    "so much better than the movie"

    I listen to this book first and really did enjoy it. As soon as I was finished I decided to go rent the movie was very disappointed. They simply removed about three major characters, and of the ones remaining they chopped this down to the point where it was almost not the same story. Granted I'm almost always a believer in the book is better than the movie but in this regards it's night and day...or maybe dark and light

    "Unexpectedly thrilled about this book"

    I had no idea what to expect but I was drawn in within the first chapter and couldn't stop listening. The story line is semi-unique and very well written. Details were impeccable and the characters are so well formed throughout the entire book. I've read a number of super natural style books and truly enjoyed this twist
