Beautiful Creatures - Review

The Caster chronicles book one.
Available now.

What's it about?

In Ethan Wate's hometown there lies the darkest of secrets . . .
There is a girl.
Slowly, she pulled the hood from her head. Green eyes, black hair. Lena Duchannes.
There is a curse.
On the Sixteenth Moon, the Sixteenth Year, the Book will take what it's been promised. And no one can stop it.
In the end, there is a grave.
Lena and Ethan become bound together by a deep, powerful love. But Lena is cursed and on her sixteenth birthday, her fate will be decided.
Ethan never even saw it coming.
My review
Beautiful creatures is a gripping novel and an excellent start to a series. The book might be a mighty 576 pages but I was hooked right the way through and found myself being easily pulled into Lena's world along with Ethan. I was captivated by both the light and dark sides of the Caster universe. I first read Beautiful creatures when it was originally released at the end of 2009 and to this day Ethan is still my favourite lead male character ever, and not in a book boyfriend way either, more like a big brother. His dedication and unwavering loyalty to Lena is amazing and he doesn't just love her, he's completely in love with her, they always felt meant to be. He has big dreams for his future, he's smart and well read, I'll always have a soft spot for him.
First time authors Kami and Margaret managed to create an immersive world in their first novel together, full of interesting characters like Link, Macon and Ridley, who all had stories of their own to add. It was a book I really enjoyed and will always be one of my favourite series'.

If, like me, you're already a fan of this series, then check this out!

Dangerous creatures

The first in the spin-off series is available to preorder and will be released on May 20th 2014.

A new series returns to the world of Beautiful Creatures. Some loves are cursed...others are dangerous.

Ridley Duchannes will be the first to tell you that she's a bad girl. She's Dark. She's a Siren. You can never trust her, or even yourself when she's around. Lucky for her, Wesley "Link" Lincoln can never seem to remember that; quarter Incubus or not, his heart is Mortal when it comes to Ridley. When Link heads to New York City to start a music career, Ridley goes along for the ride-and she has her own reasons. As if leaving small-town Gatlin for the big city, trying to form a band, and surviving life with a partially reformed Siren isn't hard enough already, Link soon learns he has a price on his head that no Caster or Mortal can ever pay.

Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, the #1 New York Times bestselling coauthors of Beautiful Creatures, are back and casting another magical spell. Their signature mixture of mystery, suspense, and romance, along with a dash of fun and danger, will pull fans in and leave them begging for more.
