Beautiful Darkness – Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

Beautiful Darkness - Beautiful Creatures Book 2Some loves are meant to be, others are cursed…


I had read the first book in the series, Beautiful Creatures, about a year ago. I was gripped on the book and couldn’t stop reading.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t immediately find Beautiful Darkness, the next book.  I eventually got my hands on a copy, and was very excited to begin reading it.

However, I was very disappointed…….

For me, the plot was inconceivable compared to the previous book.

Beautiful Creatures told the story of Lena and Ethan falling in love and saving each others’ lives, in very different ways. I thought they were a great couple and it was blatantly obvious how much they loved each other. However in Beautiful Darkness they effectively broke up, for me this was an unimaginable plot twist. This really spoiled the book for me.

However, it wasn’t all bad. We were introduced to  Liv, a new character who became one of my favourites. I also enjoyed reading about the journey Ethan had to complete to save Lena, as this was the most exciting part of the book.

The book was well written but the plot weakened the book. I stuck with the book because I wanted to see how it would conclude, it ended the way I predicted.

In conclusion, I wouldn’t recommend this book, however I would definitely recommend Beautiful Creatures. Hopefully this book will be the low point, I hope the rest of the series will improve and restore my faith in the story.

I am currently reading Beautiful Chaos (the third book) although I was reluctant to start reading but so far so good. Check back for the review soon!
