Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It all began for me with the movie. Yes, this was one that I watched the movie before I read the book. (very unusual for me). I was pretty disappointed with the movie . I felt like it could have been great but was missing details. I picked up the book to see if perhaps the movie had cut out a lot from the book. That is exactly what I found.
Beautiful Creatures is about young Lena Duchannes who has moved in with her Uncle in Gatlin, South Carolina. Ethan Wates is a young man from Gatlin who has been dreaming of an unknown girl. When he meets Lena he knows she is the girl who has been haunting his dreams. The two are pretty much instantly connected.
Lena Duchannes is not your ordinary South Carolina girl. She comes from a family of casters. In their family on your 16th birthday your true light comes forth and you are claimed for either light or dark.
The connection Lena and Ethan share, the mystery of the past, the visions there is so much I could share but I don't want to give any spoilers. It all leads up to one great book 1 in the Castor Chronicle Series . Looking forward to reading more of this young adult fantasy.
