Synopsis: There were no surprises in Gatlin County. We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere. At least, that's what I thought. Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong. There was a curse. There was a girl. And in the end, there was a grave. 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.
I. Loved. It. Just incredible. I honestly was expecting something vampire-ish *I never read the synopsis* but. oh. my. god. I was so wrong. Honestly the ending was like whiplash. You have to put the book down for a bit and think. But still didnt ruin the book. I feel in love with Ethan. Hes just so average. Thats not something that you find any more with books like this. Its usually the defenseless weak girl *cough* *twilight* *cough* But for once the GUY was a human. It was a nice refreshing change. And I loved the Lena wasnt some totally in control supernatural being. She was just like another teenager. Just different problems. She was struggling to grasp onto the concept of what she was. I loved htis book. Absolutely loved it. If your like me and you didnt read it a year ago, go do so now.
