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.

Sometimes life-ending.

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.

-Down underneath the magic, romance and action is something else . . . Beauty

Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl are the queens of fantasy and romance.
Regret, loss, sorrow, happiness, and hope together makes something wonderful!
Beautiful Darkness is perfect for anyone who loves romance and adventure. The
second book in a series Beautiful Darkness is one of the best books that I have ever
read. I t is the perfect followup to the first book. Beautiful Creatures. I felt a connection
to Lena like I have never felt with any other character in any other book. I can feel her
sadness and her grief. What lengths will she go to to try to save everyone from her,
including herself?

All I can say is that Beautiful Darkness is a great sequel and definitely worth reading, especially if you enjoyed Beautiful Creatures, the first book in the series. Well, even if you're on the fence about Beautiful Creatures, you should check this book out anyway because I thought it was better. I can't wait for the next one in the series.
