Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. Little Brown. Publication Date January 2010. Reviewed from ARC supplied by publisher. Official Book Website.
I'm trying something new here at Tea Cozy; when the publication date of a book is significantly in the future (say, more than six months) I'm timing the actual post for closer to the pub date combined with an early teaser.
So, what you should know about Beautiful Creatures:
It's a spooky, Gothic, Southern tale, full of atmosphere and description, with suspense, romance, and supernatural elements. Ethan Wate falls for new girl Lena Duchannes. He discovers that not only does she have secrets -- so, too, does his home town and the family and friends he's known all his life. And while the title is Beautiful Creatures, I keep on thinking of it as Dangerous Creatures.
A longer review will be posted closer to the pub date.
