The characters and their supernatural powers are very original and innovative. The book embraces southern heritage and paranormal myths and legends.

It's been a long time since I've found a series of books that I literally fell in love with. This series is always on my mind so much to a point where I can't sleep for hours, that's probably not healthy. The characters are fabulous and the writing is beautiful. I'm actually completely in love with Ethan Wate he's perfect. Lena as much as she can be stupid in the second book is also very likable and relatable despite the fact the she is a...more
I enjoyed reading this series. I'm not a teenager and haven't been for quite some time but I was hooked.
From book to book - the authors' voice was very strong and clear. I could really feel Gatlin as if it were my home town.
The end of book three made me cry and I found myself crying throu...more
I think the thing about these books is that they were pitted to be “the next twilight” or “the next Harry Potter” but truly it’s a mix of both, and deserves to have a name of...more

The writing is incredibly bland, the characters 2d, and not only are you completely unable to relate to them, make a connection with them at any given time, you feel like punching them because of multiple reasons, one of them being their inability to express their feelings and explaining exactly what is going on with them. It would save so...more

I read the first one when the film came out because I like to read the book before seeing the film. I don't know why I always do this because 9/10 times the film doesn't live up to the book. In this case that is also true.
I'm glad I didn't see the film first in this case because I probably would have been put off. To those people who have yet to read it and have been put off by the film, please just treat them as separate things because thi...more

It may be present day in Gatlin County, South Carolina, but the town is tied to the past like two apron strings pulling hard to the back, one string to mortals and the other to castors (witches). Ethan Wate is bored with the smallness of the town and the dullness of the citizens, so the new girl in school takes his breath away. Lena Duchannes will be turning 16 and at that time she will be claimed by...more
But Kami Garcia invented a nice and magical parallel universe beneath (and among) the real world – I enjoyed her point of view of our world, the magical one and the worlds in between. And, of course, I was really touched by the love story. It is not a new concept, that love conquers it all, but every writer can a...more
