I'm not really sure what it's about; the premise is very mysterious, which I love. I will read this book for the cover alone!
From their website:
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.
What could it all mean? I'm pretty excited to get into this book.
It's written by two authors, and Margaret had been a video game writer. Very cool. There is a great section on their blog for photos of the setting for Beautiful Creatures, all graveyards, weeping willow paths and pie.
Has anyone read this one yet?
