Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

Beautiful CreaturesBlurb: Lean 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 love story is told through Ethan. However, to me at least, it didn’t strike me as different or refreshing to be told from the guy’s point of view. The story progressed nicely and there was never really a place to get bored. The mystery behind everything makes you want to read more. The ending was little different than I expected, which is good. I am not sure how the rest of the books will continue on, but I guess I will find out.
