Caster Chronicles #2
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.

I finished this a little while back, before the blog, but since it is a novel in my favorite series i decided to come back and review it :)
Beautiful Darkness is.... beautiful. No words can even begin to describe.
So i kind of went overboard with my Beautiful Creatures review. it is extremely long, yes, so i will TRY to keep this down to the basics.
I FRICKEEEEENNNN LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE ITTTTTTTTTTTTT !
if you haven't read the series, i suggest you start NOW.
So here Lena becomes a total bisnatch. in the beggining at least. i was pretty pissed, she's my favorite character! After Lena killed Macon in Beautiful Creatures to save Ethan, she becomes ..... very absorbed i guess you can say, in her own grieving, and starts to steer clear of ethan. She see's him with Liv, a girl that now works with him, and becomes even more absorbed & a tad bit jealous, and leaves with john breed. oh hoooo, isnt ethan pissed now? HELL YEAH. this book is all over the place, & I LOVE IT. except i was really frustrated the whole time. but still... loved it.
Lots of things happen while Ethan & Liv go looking for Lena. they end up being joined by Ridley soome way through, who gets stripped of her powers as a Siren by Sarafine. Its hard to continue reviewing without any spoilers but... lets just say certain people find out theyre not dead, and they go on a mission to save Lena & destroy Abraham. OH & did i mention that Lena is pretty much a dark caster now? YEEEP. yellow eyes and all. although she hasn't been claimed yet... so nothings permanent Thank god . if it was i'd probebly cry... fricken love her.
so the characters are still & always will be, amazing. The new characters we get introduced to are extremely well built & the atmosphere is just perfect. the plot couldnt be better & its perfectly fitting for their situation. I love how the authors managed to juggle between the mortal world , the caster world & the world in between. they did a phenomenal job keep everything in check, and the story didnt get messy with detals. they did it again.
At the end , Lena finally gets claimed !!!!! but i wont tell you what happens bitches ;)
next in line is beautiful chaos..... GO GET IT.
Happy reading !
