“She was my destination. I was always on my way to Lena, even when I wasn’t. Even when she wasn’t on her way to me.” – Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, Beautiful Darkness
Synopsis : Together Ethan and Lena can face anything Gatlin throws at them, but after suffering a tragic loss, Lena starts to pull away, keeping secrets that test their relationship. And now that Ethan’s eyes have been opened to the darker side of Gatlin, there’s no going back. Haunted by strange visions only he can see, Ethan is pulled deeper into his town’s tangled history and finds himself caught up in the dangerous network of underground passageways endlessly crisscrossing the South, where nothing is as it seems.
In the sequel to Beautiful Creatures, Lena and Ethan find themselves dealing with the sad aftermath of the first novel. Slowly, they began to deal with the fissures and distance in their relationship, while darkness begins to close in on them. Along the way, we get introduced to a few new villains and meet a new cast (lol) of characters.
