Blurb: 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.

My thoughts: This is the first time reading a book from a guy’s point of view. Normally it would be the girl’s. So it was a refreshing read for me and i would love to see more of such romance books with the guy’s point of view. I’m enthralled by all the Caster theories and it was very different from the other paranormal books. At first, i thought the beautiful creatures in this book is referring to the immortals but in the end it is referring to us — mortals. WOW! In this story, Lena, the female lead, wishes to lead a normal life and Ethan, i would like to applaud you, for being such a supportive boyfriend. With him leaving his snobbish group of friends and deciding to hang out with her instead. He also has this side of him that wants to get to know Lena more despite all the rumors. Which is a very challenging thing for us teenagers to do as we tend to think about our social statutes and hence make foolish choices. He is indeed very mature. And Link is also a fun person though he is naive and i liked the fact that he acknowledges that his mom and he DAR club is redundant. I’ve yet to watch the film adaptation and can’t wait to read the next book in this series. I hope to see you guys in my next blog post! Bye and have a happy time reading.

  1. I was also pleasantly surprised by this book. I just downloaded Beautiful Darkness on my nook and started reading it last night. If you are looking for other books from the male's view point, I definitely suggest John Green (Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns, An Abundance of Katherines).
