Summary
Nothing ever seems to change in Gatlin where generations of families can trace their roots back to the Civil War, and everybody knows everybody's business. Things get stirred up the day Lena Duchannes, niece of the town recluse, arrives. Gossip and rumors abound, but none of that matters to Ethan Wate, who has a mysterious and unexplained connection with the unusual newcomer. Lena has a dark and dangerous family secret, and Ethan seems to have no choice but to be involved.
Critique
Beautiful Creatures is full of history, mystery, magic, humor, romance, and suspense. In a refreshing change of pace, the story is told from a male point of view. The characters, including the secondary characters, are intriguing, and the small town Southern setting is dark and haunting. The somewhat abrupt ending sets up a sequel. Highly recommend.
