A MUST READ!!!! BETTER THAN TWILIGHT (IMO)

Synopsis

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.

My thoughts

I love this Southern romance and the magic that it entails.  My favorite part of this book is the acceptance of differences between Lena and Ethan.  I also love the dark, gothic feel of this book, not in a scary way but more of a dark romantic feel.  I found myself laughing at some of the characters.  Just an overall great book in my opinion.

One thought on “A MUST READ!!!! BETTER THAN TWILIGHT (IMO)

  1. I've been wanting to read this series for ages! But I have so many books for review and book series that I bought last year that I have not been able to get to them yet. Glad to hear you enjoyed them and btw if I'm not mistaken, they are gonna make a movie of book 1 and I think they cast Viola Davis (from The Help) as one of the main characters 🙂
