                            Story                                                  

Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.


In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.



                                   Review                                                                                            

First I loved the return of the witch. I grew up with shows like Sabrina the Teen Age Witch and Charmed. So it was really refreshing to see the return of the witch living among mortals.

At the core of Beautiful Creatures, is a story of teenagers, secrets and forbidden love. Which are all the building blocks for an amazing story.It is always hard to give a honest review without giving to much away and with this story that is defiantly the case.  

The story is set in a small southern town  with a very strong historical connection to the civil war.

The main characters Ethan and Lena have very different stories that combine to make a very powerful story. As our start struggle to deal with finding their own identities and way in life, finding each other may just be what saves them. There are several characters that you are either going to love or hate ( as there is in any story ) But each has their own unique  story and power that they bring to the overall story.


With the release of the movie it is one I would recommending before you see it at the movies.
