beautiful creaturesSixteen year old Ethan Wate lives in Gatlin, South Carolina. Gatlin is a place where nothing happens and he can’t wait until he can get out of there. That is until Lena Duchannes comes to town. Lena is unusual for a fifteen year old in Gatlin. She wears dark clothes, long dresses, and has no interest in the cheerleading squad. For the most part people ignore her, until strange things start to happen. Ethan is soon unable to stay away from her, but she also has a secret. Lena is a castor coming from a long line of bad blood. Once a female castor turns sixteen, their fate is decided. The fate of whether or not they will be good or evil . Yeah, big deal good witch or bad witch, but its more complicated than that. If a castor turns out to be on the bad side of things, they are forced to leave their family. Lena has less that 200 days left until her fate is decided. As Ethan and Lena grow closer, things begin to get harder. Lena is having a hard time controlling her powers, and it seems like her fate may already be decided.

I decided to read this series after i saw the movie. I liked the movie and i still do even after reading the books. its understandable why some people like the books better than the movies. I thought this was a very good series that has a lot of unexpected twists. I would suggest, if possible, reading the books before watching the movie.
