Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Posted: September 2, 2011 in fantasy. supernatural, good and evil, suspense stories





I listened to Beautiful Creatures on audio, narrated by Kevin T. Collins. He narrated in a regular voice, but talked in a Southern drawl in the dialog. I loved the sound effects and everything about his pacing.

BC is an Evergreen nominee book for 2012. It is a fascinating melding of voodoo, witchcraft, vampires and casters; definitely casters. Ethan discovers a hidden secret in his boring little town, one involving a new beautiful stranger, Lena Duchannes, her odd uncle, the librarian and the Civil War. His housekeeper keeps Ethan stocked with good luck pieces, as well as an amazing quantity of food to eat. Little by little Ethan discovers that not only is this new stranger unusual, she could be dangerous. Not to mention the curse, and the grave…

The saga continues in Beautiful Darkness, with so many twists and turns you need a road map!

ENDERS’ Rating: *****

    I have been listening to this in between review books. . .I agree. I like this audiobook. He also narrated The Replacement, although I didn't like his work in that one as well.Jodi
