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.

At a Glance:
I've wanted to read this book for a while now, my mom read it and she loved it. Now that I've finally read it, I'm glad I did. And just in time for the movie to come out, the movie was pretty amazing as well.

Action:
There wasn't much action in this book, but the little bit of action was really fun.

Romance:
Oh, The romance... It was so brilliant. This book is defiantly in my favorite romantic books. I just couldn't put the book down, that's how amazing it was. I even got in trouble for reading instead of doing my chores. :)

Heroine:
I really liked Lena's character, she was really fun to read about, and I was just in love with her character.

Hero:
I loved Ethan's character, he was quirky and really funny. He was probably my favorite character.


Favorite Supporting Character:
I would say I really loved Amma and Link. They both were really fun and quirky. Link just made me laugh and I just loved Amma, she kinda reminded me of my mom.


Something I loved:
I loved all the romance between Lena and Ethan. I also loved all of the fantasy and all the different characters they were all just so much fun.

Something(s) I hated:
I didn't really hate lots of things in this book, just that it got a little boring at the end but I still loved it!

Cliffhanger? 
No, not really.

Would I recommend it?
Maybe only to people who really love these kinds of books. This book wasn't that good enough to recommend to anyone.


Did my friends like it? 
My best friend says that this is one of her favorite series ever. She absolutely loved this book. My mom loved the first book but she didn't really like the rest of the series.

Will I buy/keep it? 
I think I would keep the first book, but I didn't really like the second book. I only got half way through it, and couldn't read the rest. It just kinda got boring to me.

Book Rating:


4 out-of 6
