The Los Cerritos library now has all four books in The Beautiful Creatures series, written by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.
Beautiful Creatures takes place in a small South Carolina town called Gatlin, where it seems little has changed since the Civil War. Sixteen-year-old Ethan is powerfully drawn to Lena, a new classmate with whom he shares a psychic connection and whose family hides a dark secret that may be revealed on her sixteenth birthday.
In Beautiful Darkness, in the same small town with a secret world hidden in plain sight, Lena is now sixteen and possesses supernatural powers. She faces a life-altering decision and begins to draw away from her true love, Ethan, a mortal with frightening visions.
The saga continues in Beautiful Chaos, when swarms of locusts, record-breaking heat, and devastating storms ravage Gatlin as Ethan and Lena struggle to understand and control the impact of Lena’s claiming, which is causing her family members’ abilities to dangerously misfire.
The final book, Beautiful Redemption, finds Ethan waking after the chilling events of the Eighteenth Moon, with one goal – to return to Lena and his loved ones. Back in Gatlin, Lena vows to do whatever it takes to bring Ethan home, even trusting old enemies and risking the lives of those Ethan left to protect.
