Waiting on Wednesday ~ BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS
BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
October 12, 2010
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.
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.
I loved Beautiful Creatures and cannot wait for this one, the sequel in the Caster Series, to be released. For those of you who didn't know, the cover has changed from the old one with the gate to the new one you can see above. So happy about the change as well. The old one looked childish, but this one looks amazing, and blends better with the cover of Beautiful Creatures.
While talking about covers, here's a question for the comments. Do you think it's important for books in a series to have covers that look similar, such as those in Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games Trilogy, or does it not matter, like in Simone Elkeles' Perfect Chemistry series?
