Beautiful Darkness

Beautiful Darkness - Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl This is the sequel to Beautiful Creatures and returns the reader to Gatlin and the continuing relationship between Ethan and Lena. As Lena draws closer to her 18th birthday Ethan finds she is pulling further and further away from him. Understanding that she is fearful she is going to become a dark caster he nonetheless cannot let her slip away.

This book will definitely appeal to those readers who enjoyed Beautiful Creatures. Ms. Garcia introduces a few new characters, interestingly fleshes out some characters from the first book and leads the reader through some twists and turns before the ending. Still not totally resolved, I foresee another installment in this series.
