This arrived today from LA, thank you juliet. I'm so excited to have been sent a signed copy, I can't wait to read the next book in my favourite series of all time!! Released on my Birthday - Is that a sign?
Ethan Wate thought he was getting used to the strange, impossible events happening in Gatlin, his small Southern town. But now that Ethan and Lena have returned home, strange and impossible have taken on new meanings. Swarms of locusts, record-breaking heat, and devastating storms ravage Gatlin as Ethan and Lena struggle to understand the impact of Lena's Claiming. Even Lena's family of powerful Supernaturals is affected - and their abilities begin to dangerously misfire. As time passes, one question becomes clear: What - or who - will need to be sacrificed to save Gatlin?
Below are the first and second books of the series:
Ethan Wate is haunted by dreams of a girl he’s never met. When Lena Duchannes moves into his small southern town of Gatlin County, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her. And he is determined to uncover the strange connection between them, even if it means uncovering the one secret that could change everything.
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.
Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness.
I read them just after I finished my painting, I Love You Inside Out Whoever You May Be. I really connected to this book as it's main character Lena, reminded me so much of an older Mimi. In my painting, there is a boy. Mimi can't see him but can hear his voice, she feels love, but doesn't know it yet, or who it is for. The boy in the book - Ethan hears a song in his dreams, that take over into his everyday. He then meets the girl who he already knows in his dreams.
