About the Book

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.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

Buy the Book

Here's what I'm giving it:

Rating: 4 stars

Here's why:

I saw the movie first and, while it takes some things from the books, it didn't get it all. I enjoyed reading the story about Lena and Ethan.

I'm not much on history, but i loved the way they weaved the civil war setting with the present day. The supernatural and paranormal elements blended seamlessly and made this love story a believable one.

The secondary cast of characters (Macon, Amma, Ridley, etc.) were well-fleshed out and added flavor to the story.

Ethan, smart and full of tenacity. Lena, vulnerable, intelligent and very conflicted. All the things I like in characters. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

Would I recommend this? Yes and I plan on reading the rest of the series.
