Beautiful Creatures is a very good book. It is the kind of book where you're anxious for the end, but enjoy the whole thing. Lena is new in town and is staying with her Uncle Macon, the town shut-in. Lena and her boyfriend, Ethan, have been sharing the same dream before they even met for months. They also can talk to each other, in their minds. Ethan soon finds out that Lena is a Caster, technically another word for witch, wizard, sorcerer, sorceress. On Lena's 16th birthday, she will find out if she's Dark or Light, bad or good. Fate Claims her, it's been like that for her family, only, her family, all other Casters claim themselves. One day, Ethan and Lena are talking in the lemon trees, and find a locket. They both touch it at the same time and see the past, they see their ancestors. They go on a wild adventure and find out why Lena's family is cursed, how to break the curse, and how to have fun while doing it. Find out if Lena is claimed for the Dark or Light in Beautiful Creatures.
