'Beautiful Creatures' sequel trailer

By Tanya Marcy

“Ethan Wate fell in love with a girl. She was beautiful, dangerous … and cursed.”

If you haven’t yet heard of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s scary-good debut novel Beautiful Creatures, you’re missing out. Released last year, it’s definitely garnering attention with its unique paranormal-meets-the-south hook, and now this month the budding trilogy continues with its sequel, Beautiful Darkness:
“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.

And now that Ethan’s eyes have been opened to the darker side of Gatlin, there’s no going back.”
