11+: Beautiful Creatures - Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl


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.


Whilst I wasn’t overly enamoured of the book blurb, when I started reading this offering I was more than hooked by the authors writing style. The prose is an instant hook alongside a protagonist that the readers can identify with pretty quickly. Add to the mix a tale of love and suspense and you know that its going to be something that will stay with the reader long after the final page is turned.

Its quirky, its unique and with two authors who blend so seamlessly into the each others writing style it’s a very successful partnership. Definitely one to pick up and enjoy as well as recommending to others who enjoy the paranormal romance angle.

  1. I really don't need any more books right now, but I've heard so many good things about this one that I'm horribly tempted.
